I wish I had naturally long, full lashes, but that gene skipped out on yours truly so I’m here on the quest to find a mascara that will give me a boost when I don’t want to wear falsies. I’ve been pretty stuck on L’oreal’s Lash Paradise, but when I was in Korea I picked up two versions of Etude House’s Curl Fix mascaras to try. I got the original, Etude House Lash Perm Curl Fix Mascara and the Long Lash version. Let's see if they'll bring my baby lashes to life! 

What It Is

Overall these mascaras are not that amazing, but the original is better than the Long Lash. With both formulas, my lashes got clumpy and very stiff after two applications. They both held my curled lashes from AM to PM, but the Long Lash formula smudged a bit. Long Lash did give some extra length, but not enough to knock my socks off. The original held up best! I paid about $12 for each mascara so they’re definitely not the cheapest, but I would recommend the original if you want to give it a try.
