Seek no more if you’ve been finding for a mascara that gives you a natural kawaii look because the answer is here – CANMAKE Flaring Curl Mascara. While brown mascara tends to blend into the background too much and thus reducing the impact of your eyes, black looks too harsh. They have cleverly came out with a solution which is combining brown fluid with black fibers that are usually added to make black mascara look jet black. Hence, the color Chocolate Black that gives a soft yet wide-eyed look.
