Kiko 30 days extension mascara review

About a month ago, I went to a kiko cosmetics shop to get some of their nail polishes. As far as I know, the polishes here are the cheapest in Italy, with a bottle costing at a minumum of 2.50 euro.

Anyway, my eyes were attracted to the ’30 days extension mascara’. I don’t know why I decided to get it in the end since I normally wear glasses and mascaras (all mascaras) tend to streak my lenses.

I think I paid Β about 8 euro for this (though I feel a little cheated though that now the price has dropped down to 3.90 euro!!!) And now that I’ve been using this for 30 days, I’ll do a quick review.

The mascara claims to increase the length by 169% with constant use with the help of their K2 pro-growth complex (what’s that?) and has been tested on 20 women for 30 days to prove this claim.

I’m not going to claim that I’m an expert on the ingredients. But it’s a good habit to read what the formula is made of, just in case you might find out that you could be allergic to an ingredient like silica or beeswax.

The mascara comes in a 8ml stick which is more than enough to last for about 30 days use. As far as I know, there is only one choice of colour – black.

Opening the mascara, you’d get a regular type of wand. And I don’t know if it’s just the particular stick of mascara that I bought or if I was unlucky at getting a bad batch, but the formula was so dry! Hence, it tends to be a little bit clumpy. It was as if painting the walls with semi wet paint.

The mascara is not water-proof by the way. And so it is easily washed away with regular soap. So, try not to cry when you’re using this, or you’d end up with racoon eyes!

Anyway, I have been using the mascara faithfully for about 4 hours a day. Here is what it looks like on day one.

And here is what it looks like after 30 days.

By the way, a good trick that I’ve learnt on how to put on mascara is to brush it down. Wait for it to dry a little and then brush it up like how you normally do, so you don’t stain the eyelids later on.

And … I see my lashes longer! But it’s very subtle though. I’m not sure if any of my close friends would ever tell the difference. Nevertheless, that’s pretty nifty!Β 

If you asked me if I would buy it again, I’m not too sure, considering the dry formula that I got (but I could have been unlucky) and also as I’m mainly a glasses user, hence streaking accidents happen easily for me. And it’s such a commitment to be using it constantly during the day.

Maybe ‘the night treatment booster’ could be a better choice for me instead. Since it works the same way, and now that the price has gone down to 3.90 euro.

Should I?

  1. Hmm… seems slightly thicker. Guess u have to constantly use it for the day or night treatment if u want to keep having the effect.
    By the way, I’ve used the baking soda as the exfoliator today and feels so good πŸ™‚
    Another exfoliating tip.. u could use the used(cooled down) grains of yr moka coffee to do a hand scrub..feels real smooth afterwards πŸ˜‰

  2. ha-ha I bought the nail colours in JAN for €4.50 and when I went back in JUN, the price has gone down to €2.50 and it has stayed that way since πŸ™

    On the mascara I once bought 2 @ €3.90; 1 for myself & 1 for my sister. When I tried the tester, it feels so nice, not too heavy as to weight down my lashes nor too watery. When I go home & start using mine, it was so dry that it makes me so upset that I just threw it away. While the 1 for my sister works just fine! πŸ™

    I supposed from now on, I know of KIKO’s ‘trick’; I won’t buy their stuff anymore unless it’s on sale!

    1. Hmmm! Man, you must have felt cheated when you found out about the nail polishes!

      Now that you mentioned it … I think I’ll start doing the way that you do too, just get the items when it is on sale because even when buying at regular price is no guarantee that you’d get the best stock :p
