Shiseido Lasting Lift vs. Apple Super Lash Mascara Review

I've heard a lot of great things about this Apple Super Lash Mascara and had to try it myself. I've been told that this mascara is perfect for Asian lashes which are hard to keep curled all day long. Unlike some lucky girls I have the same concern and there were no other mascara that held my curl other than my HG Shiseido Lasting Lift Mascara.
Bought from Ebay 3 for $13


As you can see from the pictures, there is nothing fancy about the Apple mascara, very plain packaging and a basic brush.

So I've tried the Apple mascara and pleasantly surprised how it is in fact could hold my curl. I've got almost the same result as my $23 Shiseido for just $4 Apple mascara. Furthermore, it was easier to remove compared to Shiseido which is a big plus. Another nice thing was after I put the Apple my lashes felt soft like it's been conditioned unlike my Shiseido which hardens it. I guess it is thanks to the Mamey oil it has in it. Very much likely to replace my HG Shiseido mascara. I'm excited!!!
Here comes the result pictures:

Very confusing... isn't it?
1 coat each PLUS L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black... WHY???
I have to do it because Shiseido Lasting Lift Mascara doesn't do any of the lengthening and volumizing job. It just keeps curls up all day without fall outs and smudging. On the other hand, another plus for Apple, it volumizes but not to the extend of other mascaras like L'Oreal, CG Lash Blast or MF 2000 Calories. Forgot to mention that it also doesn't flake and smudge.

This is after 10 hours ladies!!!
With other mascaras my lashes would have been pointed downward already!

Please consider that on the previous picture I was looking up but if I wasn't it would've looked similar to this one. Ok, with that said, you still can tell that Shiseido held my curls better but Apple wasn't that far considering the price.
Bottom line: I'll buy it again.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Great review! I have also tried this apple mascara because I have very straight eyelashes.. an application tip is to "comb" your eyelashes with the brush instead of zig-zaging them. That will coat them more evenly. For an amazing volume apply two coats with this technique and for the lenght apply a very light third coat just in the tips. I hope this also works for you ;)
    Good luck!

  2. Hello! I know and have used this Apple brand too because my eyelashes are very straight.... try curling your eyelashes with a spoon (youtube has tutorials) so you can achieve better definition. Success!
