1. ESSENCE I <3 EXTREME CRAZY VOLUME MASCARA
S$5.50 at Watsons outlets
One of my all-time favorite beauty products is mascara. Perfectly good mascara can highlight and enlarge how your eyes look. The mascara’s wand is bigger than others but you will find it easier to maneuver. The staying power is good in both warm and cold weather. The Essence I <3 Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara gives your lashes length, thickness, and darkness to increase its volume. Best of all? It retails for only S$5.50! Good quality at an affordable price – count me in! If you are more comfortable with a smaller wand then, browse to Essence’s wide range of mascaras.
