This is the second mascara I own from the brand Missha. Like I have mentioned in my previous mascara reviews, I have a never-ending thirst for mascaras. I have a decent stack of mascaras and I just love to hoard as many as I can. Even for my daily makeup routine, I use at least two different mascaras with multiple coats. One of the facial feature that I covet the most are lush, dense eye lashes – the kind they show in mascara advertisements; which albeit fake, do appear fascinating. But unfortunately, I lack that beauty feature and hence, I invest in mascaras every now and then. This post is the review of one of the mascaras I bought as part of my Korean beauty haul.
A protective layer is formed on each lash, making your eyelashes look full and voluminous.
My Experience with Missha The Style 3D Mascara:
I was really fascinated by this product and it’s other version – 4D mascara because, I am constantly on the lookout for the products that can make my lashes look dense and voluminous, which will work as per their claims and will not harm my eyes. When I saw the description and reviews of this product, I immediately added it to my cart and hoped that its description and reviews are genuine.
The product comes in a mascara like packaging. The tube that holds the product is slender and black in color. It has a cap which holds the lash comb/wand and is relatively skinnier that the usual mascara wands. It is a generous size tube and looks like the product will last a while.
The main feature of Korean makeup is to keep the whole look subtle and natural. They do not like dramatic look or over exaggerated features. Their products work, but within the limits of natural beauty and appearance. These products are not for people who love to make a dramatic statement with their makeup. That is why Korean skin care is famous in USA, but makeup not so much.
I knew this fact but still, I wanted to dabble with some Korean makeup. So, decided to give a fair trial to this mascara. I honestly found no difference between the 4D and the 3D mascara. They are exactly same products packaged under different names. Like 4D mascara, it has no fragrance, it is opaque black in color, it does not clump lashes and has no fall out.
However, it is not for someone like me who has sparse lashes and who love to make a bold statement with my lashes. It can be paired with false lashes, but since I do not wear falsies, this aspect is a big letdown. The wand is skinny and can poke eyes if used in a rush. So, I take my time while using it and work my way up from my roots to lash end and do the same for my lower lash as well.
Pros of Missha The Style 3D Mascara:
- The concept of the product is appealing to people, who are always on the lookout for a new mascara.
- It is affordable and is worth a try.
- It adds subtle definition to lashes and is perfect for those who like subdued makeup look or wear falsies.
Cons of Missha The Style 3D Mascara:
- It is exactly like 4D mascara – there is no difference between the two.
- Availability can be an issue for some, but some Korean websites do ship to India as well.
- The wand is a bit tricky to work with – too skinny and can poke eyes.
- The ingredient list is rife with chemicals and no essential extracts that promote lash growth – this is unusual for Korean beauty because, they always have some beneficial ingredients in their products.

Do I Recommend Missha The Style 3D Mascara?
From this product, I got what I had expected, but I wish that it was slightly different than 4D, otherwise, what’s the point of marketing two different products. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my first Korean brand mascara and will continue to use it. But, only with other volumizing mascara as well.
