I love this mascara, it's the best one I've ever used. I've tried so many over the last 25 yrs, from YSL, Dior, Channel, through Too Faced, Benefit, Maybelline, NYC, MUA-really everything at every price range. I use the waterproof version on top of a white base, I use 2 coats. It separates brilliantly, lengthens wonderfully, picks up all the lashes end to end doesn't clump, doesn't flake or smudge, keeps the curl-really, what more could you ask for?!
I used this for 1 month before it dried out. The good thing is the brush and the formula itself when new because it comes lash extending fibres and is a medium consistency from the beginning which is good in a new mascara but bad when the mascara dries out quickly. The opening of the tube is not tight enough so you get a lot of product on the brush (I used to wipe it out or it will clump). The colour is matte black, but should be darker, but what I liked most is the finish, really vollumized lashes. Won't repurchase!
I love this mascara, it does a little of everything and it does it well. It actually structures lashes into looking neat and beautiful, like in advertisements where all the model's lashes are perfectly lined in order, which I prefer over other mascaras that give perhaps more length or volume but have you end up with lashes each pointing a different direction and looking unpolished.
I bought this Mascara for $10 at Kmart. The price was originally 30 something dollars. The first time i unscrewed the wand and took it out the brush was absolutely filled with mascara, it didn't apply well, it flaked and i got major clumps. Not impressed will not use again. The best mascara brand i've tried is revlon.
This is my go to mascara. I love the formula, the brush, the packaging...EVERYTHING! Just the price...
At first I found it difficult to use, but once I got the hang of it, it was true to the claims. It does create a false lash effect without looking clumpy, heavy or creating spider lashes. I didn't get the waterproof one, but even so, it was rather waterproof itself! The only downside may be the smell and that after long periods of wear it does fade and smudge under the eye, however that is with most mascaras. I find it holds and lasts better than Maybelline mascaras and I have tried plenty of those!
Definitely give this product a go if you can find it on sale!
I bought this product last year because I have read so many good reviews about the mascaras from L'oreal and I wanted my eyelashes to look super long and voluminous. However I wasn't very satisfied.
Pros: it separates the lashes very well and makes them look pretty in the first weeks of use.
Cons: the product finishes soon, and after a few weeks I look like I don't even have mascara on my eyelashes. Moreover, it doesn't have the so advertised "4D" effect, it's not spectacular at all.
Conclusion: you can find better products at a more cheaper price.
I have the Black Lacquer version and I must say, I was very pleased with it for the first week. It gives volume and length, doesn't clump, gives a bit of curl, and is easy to apply with the brush. The Black Lacquer version is really nice and black. But after a week, I noticed that it does smudge. After a long day without any touch ups, I look like a panda. I need to look into to the mirror every hour and try to get rid of the black smudges I have under my eyebrows and under my eyes. The only way I can use this mascara now, is that I apply 1 layer of it and a top layer of another mascara. I can't use it by itself anymore.
As a true L'Oreal mascara - fan I was truly disappointed when I tried this mascara. It did not give a good result and it flaked off during the day. The mascara itself is large and somewhat difficult to maneuver..
I won this mascara as part of a hamper, and was pretty happy because L'Oreal make the mascara I was previously using and had liked. This one was alright when I first started using it, even though I had to wipe the excess mascara off the brush to use it. The longer I've had it though, the worse it has gotten. I've been using it daily for about 3 months now and the brush is getting more and more clogged with excess mascara which I then have to wipe off in order to not end up with lashes glued together by mascara into some kind of mono-lash. The brush design is interesting, and the fatter bottom end of the brush does help in getting into the corners of your eyes, but it picks up waaay too much product, so is too fiddly for me. Do not recommend.
I think this is a pretty good basic mascara, my lashes are pretty average length and very light so I really need something that can make them visible to the human eye and this does that quite well. It makes my lashes much longer after just one coat so you don't have to poke around with the mascara for 10 minutes. It hasn't smudged or flaked very badly but I wouldn't recommend going out running with this on. The tube looks really nice but it doesn't close as easily as it should.
