GUEST Product Review: Ferme Kiss Me Waterproof Curl

Guest Reviewer: TorontoViewer

Name: Kiss Me Waterproof Curl
Size: n/a
Approx. Price: $10 CAD

Shade Tried:
- Black

This isn't a regular product review, but I thought I'd share it anyway. A few months ago, TorontoViewer left this in the comments section (technically it was the first Guest Review Cinnamon Kitten received!) and this product sounds so great I thought that I should share it with all of you!

If anyone else has tried this out and would like to send in a full review, let me know! In the meantime, here's what TorontoViewer had to say:

Just got back from Japan where I always stock up on the world's best mascara. It's made by FERME and is called 'Kiss Me Waterproof Curl'.

I've used mascara ever since I was 14 and it's a very important part of my 'make-up' thus I've tried just about everything that's out there and can't find anything better than this for curl.

Routine: I curl my eyelashes and lightly apply this thin consistancy mascara which dries very quickly. I suspect by drying quickly it maintains the curl that I've crimped into my normally straight lashes.

The staying power of this stuff is amazing too: 12 hour days in the humid weather of Singapore with nary a smudge or a decrease in curl.

If you know anyone going to Japan beg beg BEG them to grab some of this for you. Oddly it's considered rather low-end and is available at the Japanese version of Kmart called DAIEI Department stores. Retails for Y1,000 which is $10 CAD (April 2007 exchange rate). Only available in black, waterproof mascara remover required.

For those that are curious about what was in the comment I deleted - it wasn't anything obscene or controversial, it was just an ad for a fashion site.

I don't mind when readers recommend retailers or mention discounts that are available, but anything that is blantently just a commercial ad will be deleted.

Have fun!

Hi cinnamon kitten, mscgal's comment reminded me of something that I thought might be useful to all your readers!

The last time I was at Pacific Mall in Toronto (Kennedy & Steeles) I found a couple of stores that sold facial products from Asia (Korea, Japan, etc.)

One store in particular that sold a lot of imported products was located on the main floor near the entrance facing Steeles.

The products are pricey, but you'll see stuff there that you've never seen before! =)

I hope this helps you & other readers locate those hard to find asian products! Because I often hear that the facial products from Korea & Japan are superior!

Thanks for the great tip! I haven't been to Pacific Mall in ages (I find the parking situation too crazy on the weekends, which is the only time I can go) but that's a great reminder - they probably carry some great Asian imports that can't be found in the usual retailers!
