Sixth Sasa Haul and Review! =)

Hi Everybody!

Here is my 6th Sasa Haul and Review! =D

I bought the following products:
-Kai Hair Pins (M)
-Kai Hair Pins (L)
-Suki Angel Long & Uplifting Mascara
-Suki Devil Volume & Curl Mascara

I have used these products for about 2 months and here is the review!

Kai Hair Pins in medium length
 This product costs $2.60 US. It is 5cm or 2in long. It is black in color.

What do I think of this product?
I really like these hair pins. Even though they are not very long, they are very strong and grip well. The material is very sturdy and long lasting. The paint does not chip and the metal does not become weak and soft after use. I like the ball-point ends of the hair pins because they do not scrape my scalp when I putting hair pins in. They slide in easily and smoothly when I need to pin back my hair or put it up in a bun. And when I pull them out, they glide out easily without painfully pulling on the remaining strands of hair. They are so strong that I only need to put in 4 pins for a very secure hair bun and my hair is about 12 inches below my chin, it is very long!

Do I recommend this product?
If you are looking for strong, long lasting, smaller hair pins, I recommend this product! These are great hair pins to invest in if you don't need to go to the trouble of looking for them.

Kai Hair Pins in long length
This product costs $1.80 US. It is about 5.5 cm or 2.13 in long. The color is black.

What do I think of this product?
This hair pin isn't much longer than the version in medium length, just a tad bit longer. It is also very sturdy and strong, with good metal that is not soft and does not weaken. The paint does not chip.
It is easy to slide the hair pin in, BUT: my main issue with this hair pin is that at the tips of the pin, there are no round ball-points which can scratch my scalp or skin, which can be a bit painful and annoying. And, the hair pin is so tight that when I pull it out, it can painfully pull on one or two strands as I take it out.
Because of the sharper tips I do not use these pins to put my hair into a bun and I just use it to bobby pin the sides of my head or pull my bangs out of my face when I need to. When I pull it out, I just pull them out slowly and carefully so that I won't rip a couple of hair strands out. However, the tightness on those remaining strands will end up damaging the hair, which I don't like.

Do I recommend this product?
Even though this is a very sturdy and strong hair pin, I do not recommend this product because of the hair pin ends have no ball-point tip to protect the skin when you put the hair pin in your hair and also because it can tend to painfully pull on hair when you take it out.

Now, before I review the mascaras I have to show you how cute they are!! XD
The only reason why I bought these mascaras because I thought they were sooooo cute! haha

These mascaras were sooooo pretty! I loved the packaging and the design! Apparently the angel and devil wings on the mascaras are rings that you can take off and wear on your fingers! But I really love them when they are just on the mascaras.

Suki Angel Long & Uplifting Mascara
This product costs $9.90 US. It contains 8mL of product.
It is said to lengthen and curl lashes to give you the innocent and pure look of an angel. It is said to contain repairing ingredients to prevent lashes from breaking and moisturize the lashes.

What do I think of this product?
To be honest I did not use this mascara very often, because I found it difficult to use. The wand shape was hard for me to brush through my eyelashes and it was hard to go from root to tip with this particular shape. After I did apply it to the best of my ability, my eyelashes were darker but not that much longer and did not really curl much and I felt it did not do much to lengthen and curl my lashes. About the repairing ingredients, I do not know because I did not use it that often, so I cannot say.
The formula is on the drier, stickier side because it is a water resistant mascara. And overall, it does last for a long time without flaking or smudging. Only until the end of the day do I see some smudging. Also, this formula does not irritate my eyes or the skin around my eyes. But because of the drier formula, it is easier and faster for this mascara to dry out and it needs to be used often to get your money's worth.
Overall, this mascara doesn't work for me, but I really like the design because it is very cute and it is more of a novelty item for me.

This is the applicator wand shape. It kind of reminds me of a caterpillar? lol Has bulbous waves or bumps.

Do I recommend this product?
If you have shorter, more spare lashes, I do not recommend this product. It will probably not do much for you. However, if you have longer thicker lashes and you do not mind the applicator shape, this might be a good product to try for fun. I can't really guarantee anything because it did not work for me, but I will say it is very cute! XP

Suki Devil Volume & Curl Mascara
This product costs $9.90 US. It contains 8 mL of product.
It is said to thicken and curl the lashes to give a bewitching and alluring look of a devil. It is also said to contain repairing ingredients to prevent lashes from breaking and moisturize the lashes.

What do I think of this product?
I like this mascara much better, especially because I love the mascara wand. It is a bit curved but not too curved so it fits my flatter  Asian eyes better than curved American mascara wands. It was very easy to apply and of course, I loved the design too! =P
This does curl, thicken, and lengthen my lashes a little. However, it is not a dramatic effect. I will not look different, just a little more enhanced. You could also say that this means that it doesn't really do much for my lashes, but I do prefer a more natural enhanced effect.
The formula is a drier and stickier formula because it is water resistant. However it does not clump my lashes together and does not irritate my eyes. It does not flake and barely smudges for most of the day. If I wore it starting at 9am, it would only start smudging around 5 or 6pm. And it does not smudge too much. This is a drier formula, so it will tend to dry out faster, and needs to be used often enough so that you won't loose any product once it dries out.
Overall this mascara worked better for me that the Angel version, but it does not give much of a dramatic effect and is a lot more subtle. However, I love the design!

This is the shape of the applicator. You can see that it is slightly curved but not very curved in shape.

Do I recommend this product?
If you are looking for a way to softly enhance your eyelashes, then I recommend this product. The mascara wand design makes it easy to apply the mascara and it does not smudge a lot. Please just keep in mind that this mascara does not change the length and thickness of your eyelashes a lot, so if you are looking for a more dramatic or more visible effect, then this may not work for you.

So I hope you liked this review. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to write in the comment box below! Thank you so much for reading and I will see you later! =)
