- Adds a little volume
- Does not smudge as easily as other mascaras I've tried
- Easily washes off with a regular cleanser
- Heavy, does not hold a curl
A great mascara for the price. I can't say enough good things about the product -- it curls defines, lengthens, stays put and is easily washed off with normal soap/cleanser. I have been using Lancome Definicils for years but started looking around when my last two buys weren't up to snuff (they left my lashes very dry). This is my new go to mascara and at about 1/4 of the price of Lancome, it's a steal.
I like this mascara. It's nicely waxy -- not too dry, not too wet -- and it coats my lashes evenly and easily. Adds a touch more volume and length, doesn't clump, is easy to remove, and the Brownish Black I use is a nice natural shade. However, it comes with one of those *really* old-fashioned spiral spoolies. I can work with it, but it would be perfect if the bristles were slightly more apart in order to comb the lashes better. Still, for 4 dollars, it performs surprisingly well.
This mascara isn't terrible, but it's definitely not HG status. It adds volume and does not smudge or flake, but it only slightly held a curl and it was hard to keep my lashes clump-free. It washes off a little easier than normal waterproof mascara, and it was only around $4 so that is a plus, but I don't think I'll be buying it again.
This mascara has been packaged very prettily. Too bad it doesn't quite live up to the exterior. It has a stronger odour than any of the other mascaras I've tried and the mascara itself it quite like a thick paste. I didn't particularly like the design of the wand, it was quite bristly and it reminded me of a toothbrush or a lip gloss wand. It does its job of adding volume but I wouldn't recommend it.
Tried this just by a fluke and was I surprised! It's one of the best mascaras I've tried in my decades of trial and error. It's not exactly waterproof but it is really nice .... no smudging, no stinging, no strange hooks at the end of my short, sparse eyelashes. Will definitely buy again.
This is my go-to summer mascara. I buy the color "Black-Brown", and it looks natural, and doesn't streak or flake off.
It isn't overly volumizing, but that's okay with me. I don't really want to look overdone while hanging with the kids at the pool. It's great for theme parks, hiking, beach, etc.
I will continue to repurchase. For this price, it can't be beat.
WHOA, this mascara is pretty darn awesome for under $5!
My requirements for a good mascara are as follows:
no smearing, especially since I use it daily on my lower lashes
can't irritate my eyes or make eyelashes stiff and crunchy
cannot produce "spider lashes" when attempting to use multiple coats
volumizing formula with a more traditional fluffy brush and creamier formula
something that can lift/or hold a curl, lengthening isn't as much of a priority for me since I wear glasses everyday.
no horrible chemical smell
This mascara meets all of those requirements perfectly with the exception of volumizing...for night I would definitely want something more dramatic but for everyday it is perfect! As far as it being "washable waterproof" I do find it easy to wash off. This is similar to full n soft with a smaller brush at a cheaper price. Will definitely re-purchase!
I don't know why I keep buying other mascaras. This is really a very good mascara. Stays on, not clumpy. The black is very dark and shows up my short little lashes. The look is nice. I'd prefer more volume, but for what it does, especially compared to more expensive brands I'd definitely buy it again.
This is the only mascara I ever use. I'm sixteen and have been wearing this for three years. I was always worried about my mascara coming off in the rain, so I bought waterproof originally. It stayed on but was like glue, I felt like it damaged my eyelashes when I took it off. This mascara is completely waterproof and won't run unless I rub my eyes. It comes off easily with facial soap. It adds length, color, and fullness to my lashes.
