Spotlight | Tony Moly Simply Style Slim Curling Mascara.

Just when I thought I was able to buy all my makeup and skincare needs from Myeongdong, I realized not too long ago that I forgot one important makeup item - a mascara. Good thing I have an extra wand hidden in my makeup stash! (And by hidden, I actually mean that I bought/got it, stored it in my makeup box, and completely forgot about it. Lol!)
Tony Moly Simply Style Slim Mascara (Curling).
This is the Simply Style Slim Mascara from Tony Moly, which sells at Php 199 each. Designed to make eyelashes look naturally longer and thicker, the Simply Style Slim Mascara line comes in two variants - Volume and Curling. Mine is the latter, as you can see.
Hangul text on the tube.
It doesn't come with a box, unlike some of the other mascaras that I have used. So yeah, the mascara tube is the packaging itself. There's Hangul text written on the tube, which I reckon is the list of ingredients. Unfortunately, my knowledge of Hangul is limited to the spoken language.
The wand and the tube.
The mascara comes in a slender black tube with a normal looking wand. But take a closer look at the brush applicator and you will see that the bristles are fine and thin. The slim tip is great for applying mascara on the bottom lashes, as well the lashes on the corners of your eye.

The mascara does not clump, which makes it easy to apply. At the same time, the wand is easy to maneuver, which allows you to apply the mascara evenly on your lashes. Now some reviewers of Latisse (a popular lash growth serum) post about side effects such as itching and iris color change.

Now here's the mascara in action. As you can see, my lashes are naturally long.
Bare face.
 But after two or three coats of the Simply Style Slim Curling Mascara, my lashes appear longer, with a bit of curl, too. Looks like I can actually skip the curlash with this mascara. Volume is okay, though I was not expecting much. After all there is a 'Volume' variant, and this one is the 'Curling' variant.

Do note, however, that this mascara is not waterproof. Expect the occasional flaking especially if you're wearing it in this hot and humid Philippine weather. On a more positive note, at least it can be washed off easily with just water and soap/facial wash. :)

Overall, this mascara is a good buy, considering its very affordable price. Not bad for Php 199 since it lives up to its name of 'Curling' mascara. :)

I am always on the market for new beauty products - as I am not really a make up girl, so I appreciate your suggestions!

It looks great on you! I like how it's not chunky and looks 'natural'.

Wow it's just PHP 199! I'd definitely check this out. I keep telling people mascaras do not have to be too expensive since you throw it out after three months so this is definitely an awesome find! :D

I don't use mascara often, but I like the ones that make my lashes seem longer and thicker. Like this! It's really evident in the after photos, I love it!
