Earlier this year when Tina went on her holiday to Taiwan, she dutifully picked up some beauty products for me. One of them is the new Kate Art Dial Mascara from their latest Spring/Summer collection. As we all know, mascara can be quite boring because apart from the actual formula and brush head, there’s not much difference between brands. So when Kate released their revolutionary mascara that comes in a tilted comb applicator I was interested.
Any comb based mascara is a welcoming sight for short, sparse lashed individuals like me. I really love the Majolica Majolica mascara so naturally a twist dial comb effect mascara is my cup of tea. Kate mascara lengthens but not as much as MM mascara does and definitely curl the lashes slightly without weighing it down. If you are after something that boost volume, you will need a second mascara to do that.
Love it because it is less messy, coats and separates lashes from roots to tip, prevent clumps, doesn’t dry prematurely in a tube due to its default twisting mechanism. In additional, it’s tops for bottom lashes as well!
What I didn’t like is that you need to clean the comb after each use to prevent mascara drying on the comb, it can be messy if you overturn the dial which can cause overflow of product. Annoyingly, it takes longer time to complete the whole mascara application process because you will need to comb it through all lashes in all directions.
Overall, I think this is great as a lengthening and delivers in terms of coating lashes from roots to tips for all individual strands. Definitely requires a separate volumising mascara to increase lash volume.
Ps: 2-3 twists of the dial is sufficient for each eye coating both top and bottom lashes.
