Kose Anmiel Mascara

 I don't know about everyone else, but I'm very picky when it comes to mascara. I find that a lot of them smudge under my eyes. I've only been using the Dejavu Fiberwig mascara (for the last 8 years or so) and for the past half year, the Dolly Wink Long Mascara (the volume one smudges).
I was happy to see that there was a new fiber mascara that is apparently very similar to both Fiberwig and Dolly Wink because it comes off with warm water.
It's supposed to have different types of fibers to build length. I find it to be a decent mascara. It definitely lengthens very well, to the point where if I'm not careful, it will touch my glasses lens. There's no smudging, but by the end of a very long day, I sometimes notice a fiber or two under my eyes.
The curling power of this mascara is mediocre, unless I do a very good job at curling with the lash curler. The application is like most other mascaras, if you're layering too much on, there's a tendency to clump, unless you comb it out. I also find this mascara takes too long to dry and when I close my eyes (while using hair spray) I can feel it sticking to the bottom lashes.
 You can clearly see how much fiber is packed into this mascara, it's even fuzzier than Dolly Wink and Fiberwig mascara. The first few times I used it, I felt one of the fibers in my eye, but lucky for me I wasn't wearing contact lenses.
The mascara comes off with warm water, although I find that I have to massage it longer than the other fiber mascaras to take it off.
In the end, I would probably not repurchase. When I look back at the cons, it's not really worth it unless there's a special package like bonus eyeliner or something.
