For me this wasn't the worst mascara I have ever bought, but it has come close. The brush is quite nice (hence the 2 out of 5) but the formulation is not waterproof. At the end of a day I have embarrassing black smudges under my eyes and my lashes have often clumped together. When first applied the brush separates my lashes really well but the formula doesn't really add much volume. Pink metallic packaging is ok, I do prefer this than the pearl white plastic which Mally uses a lot. I certainly wouldn't buy this again, ridiculously overpriced and not waterproof at all.
Although regular volumizing mascara is great, this waterproof formula SUCKS!!! As I apply it, it flakes all over my cheeks. Purchased it over a month ago and just tried it - since I couldn't return it I threw it out immediately!
It is a bit on the expensive side of mascaras, for $20, but I got this for free and it's a really good mascara! It gives great length and volume, but you gotta be very careful with the wand! It is very tricky- sometimes it deposits a ton of product on the lashes and other times it works like magic. It has awesome staying power, and no flaking. I like how even though it's waterproof it's easy to take it off with makeup remover. However, the packaging is kind of crappy because you can literally scratch off the paint off the tube O.o
Okay, so I am a mascara junkie... ever since I started using the lash growth products... i actually have lashes! So... I have been on an eternal quest to find the greatest mascaras. (Especially since every time I find one they either change the formulation or discontinue them. *silent scream*)
What i look for in a mascara:
2. Holds the curl (since I have those resistent Asian lashes)
3. Dramatic look
This mascara is awesome! A couple of coats and my eyes pop.. without being too spidery, or natural looking. The curl holds for days and the packaging is so cute! I would totally recommend.... I have this on autoship from QVC. And I am gonna stick with it, till they pry it from my cold dead hands. I have already sent Mally's company a message to NEVER change the formula or discontinue it.... but just to be on the safe side, everyone out there buy a tube! :)
I hate this stuff! It was extremely expensive and did not give me the results I was looking for. I want the fake eyelashes look because I suck at applying fake eyelashes, and I read reviews saying this would give me that look. I'm not sure if this worked for other people but it didn't for me! My eyelashes were a little clumpy, didn't give me volume (length yes, but my eyelashes are already long I want volume) and above all IT DOES NOT COME OFF! yes I use waterproof and I do so it doesn't smudge, but I have eye makeup remover for waterproof eye makeup and it comes off that way, BUT NOT WITH THIS STUFF! I had to put lotion on my eyelashes for it to come off.
overall this product is terrible and way too overpriced and I found better mascara out there that's even more than half that price!
Two coats of this gives my thin, straight, wimpy eyelashes a believable "false" eyelash look! It's a very dark black, and it holds a perfect, even, separated curl all day and all evening. (I didn't know my eyelashes could curl, let alone stay so pretty and perky.) I Before using this, I thought I would need to wear false eyelashes, or get lash extensions to get the look this mascara gives me. I'm truly shocked that after sooooo many years of wearing makeup, I've finally found an exceptional formulation. I'm also shocked that I'm wearing waterproof mascara every day, but after 3 months of daily use, I haven't had any irritation or lash damage. When this mascara is on my eyelashes, it makes them pliable, and they feel very soft. There's no smearing, or gobbing, or clumping. After about 10 hours, I occasionally get a few flakes on my lower lashes, but the lashes stay in place. This mascara is seriously waterproof, so it won't come off with facial cleansers. It doesn't all come off with many makeup removers I've tried either, but after trial and error, I've found this mascara removes easily with good old cold cream. I love this mascara - so much - and I recommend giving it a try if you don't mind a waterproof formula. For me, the results are worth the extra effort in removal. This mascara is so, so enhancing, I don't feel like I "need" eyeliner, for the first time, ever.
