When it became time for me to replace my mascara, I picked up Sana's Extra Large Mascara at Donkihote. The water-proof, fiber-type mascara promises "extra large," curly lashes and contains vitamin E and tuberose extract. I purchased the mascara expecting some very dramatic results.
While the Extra Large Mascara wand was certainly "large," the results it left were not very "big." The mascara separated and lengthened my lashes to an extent but provided little volume. I also had to go through my usual routine of using both a metal and electric eyelash curler to get my lashes curled. One positive aspect of Extra Large is that it does not flake very much and is nylon-free, but it is otherwise a very typical fiber-type mascara. And there are other fiber or film-type mascaras (such as the Wink Up Maxigrade and Heroine mascaras) that come at a cheaper price and do a slightly better job for volume. As for the vitamin E and tuberose extract, SANA only claims that they were added for eyelash "treatment" purposes but does not specifically state what they are supposed to do. The Extra Large Mascara is one of the more affordable mascaras at 1,500 yen (without tax) but for real dramatic results, I think I am still going to have to rely on Lancôme's Hypnôse and Virtuôse mascaras.
