What it is: A collagen- and peptide-infused treatment mascara that thickens and lengthens the appearance of lashes and keeps them curled longer. What it does: Create the iconic Japanese Black Lacquer look. Specially formulated to prevent clumping, flaking, and smudging, this mascara transforms natural lashes with drama and fullness. The arced brush wand lifts and builds for a full fringe of blacker-than-black lashes with a lustrous lacquer shine. The collagen- and peptide-infused formula hydrates, allowing it to build evenly for maximum thickness and smoothness, while supporting natural hair growth for lush, healthy lashes. Using the latest powder technology to create two types of new pearly pigments, it renders the effect of a Urushi/Japanese Lacquer finish. Botanical extracts to strengthen and reduce lash loss are blended into the formulation. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Sulfates - Phthalates What else you need to know: The water-resistant formula repels water, sweat, and tears, but easily slides off in tubes with warm water. It will not flake or smudge and will not come off in cold water. Only once it has been soaked in warm water, such as the shower, will it come off in sections with pressure from your fingers.
