Today I'm going to be talking about the best mascara I have tried so far - the Eye Of Horus Goddess Mascara. I won this on Nail Girl's giveaway almost a year ago, and after a solid 6 months of using this mascara, I think I can finally give a good thorough review on it!
When I entered Nail Girl's giveaway I had no idea what this product was, and how much I would actually like it! After reading the pamphlets that Lexie sent me, I was even more confused than before - a wax made mascara? Removable with water? Strengthens your lashes? Is this magic mascara?

The wand is my favorite type of wand with stiff bristles that separate and lengthen your lashes. It has a slight hourglass shape that helps curl your lashes, and it has the same regular mascara smell .
The first time I used this mascara just made me even more confused than before (if that's even possible!) because I usually coat my lashes, wait for the formula to dry, comb out my lashes and apply another coat. When I tried to comb out the first coat of mascara, I found that the mascara stretched (like chewing gum) and I couldn't get the clumpy bits out! Then when I tried to remove it with an oil based remover, it wouldn't budge! Whaaaaat.
Obviously I needed to read the pamphlets again. The next time I tried the mascara it went smoothly and I had gorgeous full lashes in no time! My natural lashes are a pretty regular length and thickness, but this mascara makes them look ultra lush! I took some before and after photos over a couple of months of wearing the mascara. Some of these photos have been airbrushed to smooth out the milia around my eyes, but I haven't touched the actual lashes. Click to enlarge any photos!

The removal is (almost) the best part of this mascara. I usually hate removing my mascara because I feel like it tugs too harshly on my delicate under eye area, so removing this mascara just using warm water and my fingertips is a godsend. It also does really strengthen and lengthen your natural lashes! You can see that my lashes have grown a little during the two months I used this mascara. I don't expect super dramatic growth like I would if I was using a growth serum like Lilash or Revitalash, but for a mascara I was pretty impressed!
My most favorite part of this mascara is the ultimate smudge proof ness (not a word). I always get mascara smudges under my eyes because my lower lashes touch the skin (a combination of long/ish lashes and puffy eye bags haha) but this mascara does not budge! It's even totally cry proof as long as you don't rub your eyes. I cried for an hour straight while wearing this mascara (girl problems!) and my lashes still looked PERFECT. I wish I took a photo, but I was too distraught.
I wore this mascara in my Oasis BB Cream review which is why these photos have a different watermark.
What I Love
- Strengthens and Lengthens natural lashes
- Waterproof/cry proof
- Gentle to remove with warm water
- Makes my lashes look long and lush
- Smudge proof
What I Don't Love
- It's a little pricey at $44NZD
I love love love love LOVE this mascara. Everything about it is absolutely perfect for me, and even though it's more expensive than a normal drugstore mascara, I'd still prefer to pay more to get a better quality mascara. It's smudge/cry/water proof, gentle to remove, and makes your natural lashes even better, so what's not to love about this product!
I'd like to thank Lexie from Nail Girl for having a giveaway on this product, because I probably wouldn't have tried it if I hadn't won it!
What do you princesses think of this mascara? Have you ever tried the Eye of Horus brand before?
