I don't know why I buy a lot mascaras recently. A lot means more than one, not more than five, okay? I think because I want to make my lashes look long and curl, not straight down as what it always looks. -_- So Etude House released its newest makeup collection around one or two months ago, and one of them is this Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara. As soon I saw the advertising picture, I think I need to get one! It's not exactly what I'm looking for, but 3 step mascara is something I have to test xD
Pinky box. I love the bow!
Description from the box:
With its breakthrough adjustable dial, 3 Step Volumecara provides 3 settings for 3 volume looks in 1 mascara, letting you customize your own lash style!
Step 1: Defined, clean volume.
Step 2: Full, glamorous volume.
Step 3: Dramatic, smoky volume.
[Directions] 1. Hold the bottle in one hand and turn the center part until desired setting. 2. Apply a layer of mascara from the base of lashes and wiggle brush up to the tip of lashes. 3. Repeat with the next setting to build more volume.

Dara is very pretty here >.< Love her makeup and hair colour <3
This is the tube. It's not too tall and pretty fat. The pink part is the dial part. You have to turn the dial and stop the step part at the stop sign.
I just want to show you the closer look of the name. :p
This is the stop part i'm talking before. Just place what step you want to the stop part and twist out the brush xD
Crown logo at the top of the tube. Sorry for the blur pic ._.
This is how it looks like when we turn the dial part and turn the upper part. The dial part can't be separated from the tube, unlike the upper part for the brush.
The mouth of the tube is too small for the brush so it will get dirty easily by the liquid. I think the mouth of the tube need to be clean regularly.
Step 1 is to create defined and clean volume. That's why it has so little mascara on it.
Step 2 is to create full and glamorous volume. It has more mascara compared to step 1, and it adds length! Volumizing and lengthening at the same time.
Step 3 is to create dramatic and smoky volume. Of course it has a lot more mascara compare to the two previous steps. :D
This is my lashes. I realized now my lashes are not that short anymore, it's longer. I don't know is there any permanent effect from using mascara? But I'm liking it :D But it's still not curl so that's the problem :|
Here are the after photos for each step:
I really like this mascara, especially for the step 3! My lashes thickened and looks darker, it's just like i'm using falsies. xD I think this one is better than Maybelline The Falsies Mascara. The formula is wet, especially for the step 3, so you have to be careful or else the mascara smudge to your lids (just like my step 3 photo :p). I'm in a rush when using the step 3 at the photo so yes the result was a bit messy. Besides, it tends to clump at the step 3 and it's not waterproof. Okay I won't complain for the non-waterproof thing because the price is relatively fair for such an innovative product. XD
What I like:
pretty packaging (as always!)
three-in-one from clean to smoky volume
lengthening at the same time
easy to remove with eye & lip makeup remover
doesn't irritate my eyes
the price is relatively affordable
What I dislike:
can be clumpy at the Step 3
In my opinion, Etude House Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara is really worth to try. It gives volume depend on what kind of look do you want to achieve. Moreover, the dial part is so fun! It's something new to me. Hahhaa.. I don't know whether there is another mascara that is also has this system but I like it. Super practical and super cute packaging. ^^
So have you tried this mascara?
