K-BEAUTY REVIEW: Innisfree – Skinny Microcara (#1 Black)

Innisfree Skinny Microcara is a very unique mascara that is quite popular with K-beauty fans. The main difference between this and your average mascara is it’s 2.5 mm wand! So tiny, right? This is meant to make it easier to coat every single lash with mascara and give you lashes which look naturally long and lush. I was actually interested in this product for a long time but only got round to buying it when I was in Korea! Read on to hear how I felt about this product 🙂

Product Shade Range:

The Packaging:

The mascara comes in a white plastic tube and you unscrew the top (pretty standard). Inside,there is a SUPER thin wand with really short bristles on the end. Since the wand is small, it only picks up a little bit of product each time you take the wand out. This is good because then you don’t end up with too much at once, though the very tip of the brush collects a bit extra mascara which I usually wipe off before applying it. The wand is sturdy but slightly flexible.

The Consistency:

The mascara is quite thin and lightweight on the lashes. As you can see from applying it on the back of my hand, there is not much product picked up at one time. The third picture is after rubbing the mascara with a finger, so sánh it does not budge. It has a light smell (you have to hold it close to smell it) which I would describe as ink-like.

The Performance:

I found it very easy to apply the mascara to my eyelashes. It was so sánh much easier to reach all my lashes with the tiny wand – normally, I can’t reach the small ones or mascara gets everywhere lol. It applies a light layer of mascara which defines your lashes nicely. It might add a tiny bit of volume but it’s not really noticeable – it just looks very natural.

I can’t say how it builds up since I usually only wear one coat of any mascara (I lượt thích it more natural) but I don’t think it would build up much. It is definitely for those looking for something very natural. When wearing this, it does not feel lượt thích you are wearing anything on your lashes.

I have not experienced any smudging, flaking or panda eyes with this mascara 🙂

Overall Rating:


Innisfree Skinny Microcara in Black is a great mascara if you are looking for something natural that will nicely define your lashes and nothing more. I would also recommend it if you have smaller eyes with lashes that are hard to reach with a regular size mascara wand. The 2.5 mm wand is amazing for reaching your tiniest lashes!
