Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Sexy Blacks WP Mascara Review & Pictures

I got this in store at Hawaii for $36 (no tax! yeah!), they told me this was the newest version of the mascara. I heard a lot of good things about this mascara, but I never tried this brand before. 

This is the most expensive mascara I have. I don't really want to review mascara because I used to have over 30 mascaras, but I barely like any of them... from Dior to Rimmel, none of them holds up the curls for more than 2 hrs! You can't reply mascara every two hrs! I found the DiorShow works the best for me for a little while, but I have to put super thick layers on my lashes. I tried false lashes, actually I am pretty good at put them on (I use false lashes even before mascara), but I just got tired to use them everyday.... I feel like I need some of those pricey lash grow serum, but they are all expensive and they might not gonna work LOL.
The good:
Back to this mascara...I barely know this brand, the only thing I know is they are one of the oldest makeup brand out there. I got it because I always heard people say, this is the best mascara ever blah blah blah...  I only used once, but I love it.  I love the packaging, It has the lace patterns on it. It is waterproof, so it dries really fast, I don't need to wait to put the second layer on it. The best thing is, it does hold my curls! I put it on about 10 a.m., when I took it off at 7p.m., the curls are still there, and there is no smudging at all.
The bad:
I can't really use it on the lower lashes since I have some super short lashes.
I use Lancome Bi-Facil to remove my eye makeup, I found it is a little bit hard to remove it. And some of the lashes fall off. I used to use a lash serum but I stopped about three days ago (when I was using it, I didn't have any fall off but no lashes grew longer either LOL), so I don't know if that is the reason.
I will update my thought if anything changes!

I have been using this every day, and I still love this one so much! I think once you cruel your lashes good, this mascara will hold it til the end of the day. I found that after you apply this, your lashes will not make it hard, the lashes are still really soft! And you really meed to make some time to apply it...or the mascara will poke your eyes. I used flat side first to separate the lashes, then the round side to give it a little bit length.

Thanks For Looking!
