I feel so bad that I neglected this blog. I apologize!!! A lot has been happening in my personal life that I haven't had the time to blog. I can't promise you but I am trying to be good about posting. Thank you for the people who still read my blog!!!
I've been using the Too Faced Size Queen Mascara for three months now. I received this at the Too Faced Summer Trend 2011 Event. I have Part 1 and Part 2 of the event if you want to check it out. I think it's time to review the mascara.

After the shock of the size of the wand, I tested it out. I actually did not like it much on the first day. It was too big to coat my short, Asian lashes especially on the bottom. I felt it was more towards non-Asian people since they have longer lashes.
Now that it's towards the end of my three months of using this mascara, I actually think it's okay. I definitely know how to use the wand better than I first did. Instead of using the middle or the end close to the handle, I use the tip to coat my lashes. I still have issues with the wand touching my skin while putting it on, but it's not as bad as before.
Other than the huge wand, it's not waterproof. Most mascaras that are not waterproof tend to weigh my lashes down. This wasn't bad. It actually kept the lashes up which I give a thumbs up for.
I also noticed there wasn't much smudging throughout the day for me. Most of the smudging happened applying the mascara.
Here's how the mascara looks on me.
I only did one layer of mascara.
* Too Faced; they always have cute packaging.
* Huge amount of mascara.
* More for non-Asian lashes.
* Doesn't weigh your lashes down.
* Not much smudging throughout the day.
* Comes in one color.
* Huge wand; hard to use on Asian lashes.
* You need to be careful how you use it or else it will get on your skin.
* Not waterproof.
Would I repurchase: No.
