Mehron Makeup SynWax | Firm Modeling Wax for Special FX | Scar Wax SFX Makeup For Fake Scars, Fake Wounds, & Halloween Effects 10 oz (283 g) - REVIEW

  • This wax is flesh-colored and easy to apply. I use it around my mouth to keep my lipstick and lip liner from bleeding out into the tiny wrinkles around my mouth. It fills them in, too, and makes them much less noticeable. Found this on a tip from a Hollywood make-up artist. (Get a small, stiff brush to apply it.)
  • I really like this stuff. It's hard for me to compare it to other brands because this is the only one I've tried, but I'm not sure I need to bother trying anything else. It's a bit hard to get out of the container, you'll need some sort of spatula, but if your in a bind, a spoon would work fine (I would just set it aside and keep it just for use with your scar wax). Once you get some out, it's fairly easy to work with, just roll it in your hands so the warmth will soften it. This was my first time working with synwax and it was easier than I thought it'd be, especially after reading some reviews. The video I posted with the nails in my hand (They wouldn't Let me post it), only took me about 5 minutes to do. Pretty awesome! I definitely recommend using a tiny amount of lotion when yougo to blend it into your skin, otherwise it can get kind of sticky. I really like this stuff, the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of five is because I think it'd be nice if it came with some sort of instructions for use. It's pretty cool that you can easily change the shape of your nose, face, limbs, etc and for it to look so realistic! You can make some real gnarly scars with stuff and it's lots of fun to play around with!
