Bihada Ichizoku Triple Wink Beam Mascara


I finally got my hands on the much talked about Bihada Ichizoku's limited Kurobara Kamen ("black rose mask") Triple Wink Beam Mascara. The mascara can only be purchased online so, even if your local drugstore carries many Bihada Ichizoku products, they do not have the mascara. You can order directly from Love Labo/Bihada's website or through Amazon Japan, which is what I did. Although the mascara is priced at 1890 yen, it does not include shipping (550 yen) or any additional fees. The actual price is somewhere around 2500-3000 yen.


The mascara is supposed to add volume, separate, and lengthen the lashes but in my case, only did two of the three. It added a fair amount of volume to and lengthen my lashes but instead of separating, it clumped my eyelashes together and made them kind of spiky. Maybe if I had thinner lashes the end result would have been very different. The mascara also has a powerful, cheap, old perfume smell that irritated my eyes. The only thing I really liked about Triple Wink Beam was that it did not flake very much, kept my lashes curled, and was easily removed with warm water. I am very disappointed because I am a fan of the Bihada Ichizoku brand and I was so excited about Triple Wink Beam after hearing such positive reviews. For 2500-3000 yen, I would rather go with one of Lancôme's award-winning mascaras.
