Old Vs. New Version of Kiss Me Heroine Mascara

I love Japanese Mascara, and Heroine Kiss Me Mascara is my HG.

I think Heroine Kiss Me vamped their mascara around the time I was in Japan. I remember seeing the new packaging when I went to their drugstores. (Japan's drugstores? SWOON) 

The biggest difference with the new version is the wand. The old version has an hourglass shape wand. The bulb shape on top of the mascara was handy to get into the hard to reach lashes. 

The new version has a cone shape wand similar to Maybelline Great Lash-Lots of Lashes mascara. The odd shape took some time getting use to. But it turned out to be okay. 

I've been using the new mascara for 3 months now. I have to say there's not much of a difference when it comes to formula. Both mascaras has a drier consistency that lovingly holds my curl and is super waterproof. When I mean waterproof. There is NOTHING that take it off, other than their own Kiss Me Waterproof Mascara remover. I will review that in a later post. 

If I had to pinpoint some differences with both these mascara, the new version may be more voluminous, but when I say that it's is the slightest difference. I found that the new version clumps easier than the old version. When I was using the older version, I just swiped and go. With the new version, I had to take my time and use a lash comb and separate each lash. 

The older version is definitely better in my eyes, and I'm sad to see it disappear. I hope to see it in some Asian markets, so I can stock up!

  1. That's really disappointing about the change! :( Have you tried Majolica Majorca's Lash Expander? I've heard a lot of good things about it, as well as the Kiss Me Heroine Make mascara.
