Review: Dual Mascara, Empro Artistic All-Function Brown and Black. Could This Be A Winner?

‘The all new Brown & Black allowing your lash to breathe effortlessly lightweight after applying the mascara. Specially developed the two-colour 3D mascara is available in two classic colours; brown & black. Both colours when combined will bring out a different effect to the eyes as magnetically attractive as when you had fake eyelashes on. Its anti-clump and long lasting effect makes it suitable for all-function wear. Fusion of Brown & Black . Smudge proof . Ultra length & curl . Stretch & Separate . Easy removing’ – Empro

This mascara was in Fabulous Finds August 2012 and I finally had my chance to review it. It’s Empro Artistic All-Function Brown and Black Mascara. Initially, I had it kept aside and almost forgotten about it and until recently, I have the urge on reviewing it. This is a dual mascara which I would say, it could be very convenient to go day or night look and you don’t have to spend on separate mascaras to get both shades.

The mascara wand is like many ordinary mascaras, straight up bristles and narrows a little by its tips.

This is the black mascara and lets see how it delivers the result upon application.

  • Curled – bare naked lashes
  • Single Coat – Well separated and defined lashes
  • Double Coat – Begin to clump and lifts lashes even more. Lashes feels harden very much.

The black pigment is not as intense as I expected it to be and it does smudge on eyelid upon application.

This is the brown mascara upon application

  • Curled – bare naked lashes
  • Single Coat – separate lashes very well, the brown shade is more of copper brown shade
  • Double Coat – separate lashes even more and lashes seems lengthen

The brown shade was an unexpected shade because it appears lighter than natural brown and its lighter than my natural shade of my lashes.

The brown mascara lasted pretty well, the curling power and for its formula being waterproof. Nothing budge out of my lashes for 9½ hours.

Same goes to the black mascara, it doesn’t budge and completely smudge proof.

I used to love brown mascara before I’m a fan of black mascara but not anymore now. Brown mascara is great for day makeup thus create softer look. Ever since I’ve used black mascara, I have yet to go back to brown mascara. I would say it has been a few years and black mascara makes the lashes far more visible. The shade of this brown mascara is lighter than I expected, I would be able to use it as brow mascara even if I don’t use it for my lashes. The lengthening power is not as great because this mascara helps more to redefine, lift and remain lash curl.

I tried removing the mascara with Lancôme Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover, it was easy to remove but the mascara (particularly black shade) tints my skin leaving me having panda eyes, which is not very attractive. It lasted after a few face wash. My lashes hardens very much when I have this mascara on and a few of my lashes drops while I remove it. This mascara is more suitable for those who wants lashes to be redefined and visible.

    • I love to have more dramatic lashes and the brown is just not enough for me but as mentioned, different individuals have different preference. It really depends!
