I'll always go back to using eyes to kill but recently, I've decided to try the excess and brought no. 1 Black and no. 3 Blue. So far, it has not smudged and I love how it holds up as well as it gave me length and volume to my short spare straight lashes. I would definitely recommend this mascara. My HG.
I love the container (which has great weight to it) and the smell (I find it identical to Lancome mascaras smell). But it flakes by the end of the day and it does not give me any volume. It does separate my lashes (which are pretty long to beging with) and color them black. That's all. Will not repurchase
This is my HG mascara. There isn't a single thing I would change! It's that great! I have long sparse eyelashes and this mascara is the best. It makes my eyelashes longer and thicker without clumping. I can put two coats of this on with cils booster Xl underneath with no problems at all. The packaging is super chic and heavy. I get compliments all the time, and people think I'm wearing falsies! Seriously you have got to try this mascara. I have tried so many but keep coming back to Giorgio. On a side note the giorgio armani maestro foundation is amazing as well.
This mascara is a 3.5 for me - I LOVE the packaging, and the mascara is a deep glossy black, but the effects are less stellar than Diorshow, Diorshow Exces and Clinique High Impact, so I wouldn't rebuy. At first I was impressed, but after using a few times I've realised that this doesn't actually do much for lengthening and doesn't build amazing volume either. I'm actually using it up for work and it's ok but it's definitely not HG material for me. Having said that, a friend tried this and loves it so each to their own!
I think this is a great mascara. I have very long lashes so I just need volume and this mascara fits the bill. The only downside is that it stings my eyes with excessive sweating. On days that I am going to the gym, I switch to a different mascara.
OK, I am old... and I only write a review if I feel everyone should know not to spend their money on such trash!! Clumps, Flakes, just plain awful!! Do not waste your money unless you really need to impress someone, but, then again, who do you really need to impress with mascara???? It's going back ASAP, LASH EXACT is the only mascara worth buying.... OH, by the way, I have purchased every,and I mean every, mascara any one could buy!!
This is the first cosmetics product I have purchased from Giorgio Armani and I'm very impressed. This mascara does an excellent job of separating lashes but also adding a lot of volume and length. Before this, I purchased Benefit they're real mascara and wasn't overly impressed so I purchased this and it is much better for my eyelashes. I would definitely recommend.
This is a great mascara. It's a glossy black formula which combined with the brush, gave me long, separated lashes with some volume. No problem with smudging or flaking and holds my curled lashes all day. Removal is a breeze too. Price is comparable to other departmental brands and packaging is classy and minimalistic. This is now one of my favorites aside from YSL Faux Cils and Diorshow Iconic and Extase, but I think if you want to add major drama to your lashes, Dior is the way to go.
I had high hopes for this after my Shiseido mascara was discontinued, but unfortunately it's the worse mascara I've used in awhile. First, it leaves you with raccoon eyes after a few hours. I've tried setting the mascara with powder and keeping my face oil free to prevent this smudging, but that didn't work. It also didn't hold my curl after application. I my discontinued mascara kept the curl and never required recurling after application. Eyes to Kill also flaked a few hours later. The SA suggested I used the waterproof version, but they're not sold right now as one SA said they were seasonal (WTH?). I returned this and won't look back.
This is the same review as for the regular Eyes to Kill product:
"My HG mascara along with Lancome Definicils. I wear the two together. This mascara is amazing in its own right. It applies easily, does not clump, keeps the lashes supple, has a glossy black colour, does not dry out quickly in the tube, does not clump or smudge, and washes off easily when taking your make up off. Having tried many many mascaras in my life, I have concluded that these criteria are the most important when deciding if a mascara is good or not."
When you want real impact, use the Eyes to Kill Excess version. It is a dense, dark, glossy black version of the regular product. It really adds so much more volume, which is why its my go-to mascara for evening looks or for special occasions. The packaging is amazing quality. I own two backups at all times!
