Mascara Review – Pierre Rene SA Super Curly

Pierre Rene Mascara

If you know me, you would know that I have a thing for mascara’s, before covid I always kept my eye out for new mascaras, but since I don’t wear makeup as often anymore, I haven’t been checking for it as much as I was. On a mission to use the current ones I have till completion hehehe,I have been exclusively wearing mascara to give me a some what made up look when I need it because the rets of the face is covered with a mask.

SO of course when Gael from Glamore Cosmetics told me she had some of the Pierre Rene Super Curly (R185) mascara for our  #SquadBoxSA you best believe I was super excited to try and review it for you guys.

Pierre Rene Mascara

The mascara boasts a new-generation specially profiled brush to ensure easy and precise application and effective eyelash curling.An innovative formula with nylon maximally thickens eyelashes. The say it contains moisturising substances and vitamins contained in the formula to take care of the condition, elasticity and shine of the lashes. Hypoallergenic, ophthalmologically tested.

Overall Performance

It is a very nice mascara and does the job with regards to adding colour which, I always say, are one of my requirements for a mascara as I have long lashes already. It did add somewhat of a curl to my lashes which is great because my lashes are fairly straight. The product goes on well but can smudge a bit.

A tip from Gael  -If you smudge mascara anywhere on your face, wait for it to dry. Once dry, you can scratch it off with your finger or a qtip

The product stays on until you need to emove which is awesome because you don’t end up with a flaky mess.

A few years ago I used a NYX mascara(I can’t remember the name) that had fibres in that creates the look of longer lashes and my eyes didn’t react well to that. Unfortunately for me this one has the same effect and i think it may be for the same reason. My eyes are very sensitive to products – if i even apply my sunscreen too close it burns the whole day.

I would recommend this product to anyone who needs a little more curl and colour to the eyes.

Hand and Nail Product Empties:

I have been very much into nails lately and have been using so much hand and nail products as evidenced here lol.

Maskscara products:

Here we have nail prep products ;

Cleanser(R75) -used to clean oils and dust from your nails after you have filed your nails,you can also use it too wipe the tacky layer from your polygel once cured or if you are using a wipe top coat.

Pr0-10 bond(R120) – used t ohelp the product bond to the natural nail to prevent lifting

Dehydr-8(R120) –  this product is used to dehydrate the natural nail to allow for a nice clean surface to paint on.

These products have been a game changer for me when doing nails. It helps the product too last longer on my nails because it enables me too do proper prep when applying the gel polish to my nails. These are products I will definitively repurchase all the time and  have already repurchased.

African Secret Hand Sanitiser and cuticle oil:

This is no doubt the best hand sanitiser(R50) that I have used. I will be repurchasing, check out my review of this product here. The cuticle oil(R65) is also the best i have used thus far, it comes in a cute roller applicator so it is very hygienic as well

Hand Lotions: 

The pink cosmetics hand lotion was very nice,I got the smaller one in the pink Cosmetics influencer box,but if you purchase it,it will be the 200ml bottle(R145).

Lentheric hand lotion(R50) – the smell is absolutely amazing,when applied the tropical smell follows you all around.

Bionike Proxera(R99) is great for those times when you have extreme dryness and really just need to get that extra hydration to your skin.


Mineraline Vitaserum(R295): This is a very good vitamin C serum ,if you are just starting to introduce serums into your skin care routine.

My Abby Range body oil(R299) – awesome body oil, i specifically like to use it after I have shaved and lotioned to lock in all the moisture

Cosrx snail mucin(R375): You know I love my K-Beauty products, and this product absolutely didn’t dissapoint. I used to use it as a night time serum- I will recommend this for purchase as it does a great job.
