This is my holy grail DG mascara! It really gives the false lash effect. The fibers do not fall out like other fiber mascaras I've tried. I wear contacts and the formula doesn't bother me one bit. Holds curl with my straight lashes. Highly recommend.
I have been combing through MUA mascara reviews because it was time to pitch my current mascara (3 month rule) and I wanted to try something new. I had been using Maybelline One by One waterproof and it's nice but I just felt like maybe I could find a mascara that gave my lashes a little more of a dramatic look. I eventually settled on this mascara, basing my decision on reviews and the fact that L'Oreal generally makes great, quality products. This is mascara is pretty excellent. I get long, fluttery, voluminous lashes after 2 coats and it doesn't flake or make them look spidery. I really like the shape of the brush: it's tapered and a smidge longer than the average mascara brush so it really helps you to get to every single lash as you apply it. The formula isn't too wet or dry and it holds a curl very well. I also love how it clicks when you close it because then I know it's sealed tight. I'll probably stick with this one for a while.
This was starting to feel and look too fiber-y for its own good. I think a fleck of it landed in my eye one day at work, not pleasant. It gives great drama but it's not ideal for every day use.
I really like this mascara because it holds my curl, gives me the desired volume, and extends my lashes a bit. I like it because it gives me the appearance of natural false eyelashes. I actually do prefer the smaller bristles because it holds less product. I hate having to scrape off excess product in other mascaras using the rule of thumb to build using thin layers but with this mascara I only use one coat to achieve the desired effect - thick natural looking lashes.
The only downside is that his does smudge on me but I recently found the best tip to preventing it and that is using a clear gel as a top coat. ELFs Clear Eyebrow and Lashes mascara works great.
It says it is waterproof but I haven't been swimming or crying lately to see if it holds true continued >>
The website claims its makes "lashes that appear fuller, longer, curled and sculpted.... Just outrageous volume from every angle." Yeah right, the small bristles and formula aren't good for building volume and length. The nylon and rayon fibers do nothing at all. This is only good for a "natural" look.
I have found my HG mascara. On my lashes, the mascara keeps a curl (usually impossible) and does not flake or smudge. It is very waterproof and gives my lashes volume and length. The price-point isn't bad and bonus - the packaging is pleasing to the eye. Overall fantastic and I will continue on with this mascara.
I was kind of surprised with this. Usually L'Oreal mascaras are really wet and they weigh my lashes down, and I therefore can't stand them. Not this though. It holds a curl in my stick straight lashes really well, isn't wet, and doesn't flake or smudge. Now, no mascara is going to give me the falsies look, but two coats of this stuff and sweeping a clean mascara wand through my lashes afterward makes them look amazing. However, the way I've discovered to wear it is better. I put on two coats letting them dry in between, separate them with a clean wand, put on one coat of the Cover Girl clump crusher and then separate again with the clean wand. They look phenomenal! I don't know if the "False fibers" are really doing anything, but there definitely is volume and length going on. The waterproof aspect also does not disappoint.
this mascara is a drier / dry formula that doesn't seem to deposit much product onto my lashes making it necessary to do multiple coats to make it look like i'm wearing any mascara at all. but with each additional coat i added, it seems to distribute the product unevenly and it didn't seem to add much, if any, volume or length for me either. i also found this hard to remove... requiring me to reapply my eye makeup remover a few times to even begin taking off the mascara. and then when it finally started coming off, the fibers would get everywhere, including my eyes irritating them. it hasn't been the worst mascara i've ever used, but i definitely didn't enjoy it. i tried it for a month but it was a no go for me, and back to the store it went.
Alright so, I was super excited to try this. I mainly was drawn to it, because, the reviews stated that it was volumizing. I reallllly wanted to love this but ladies I strongly feel that this is more of a lengthening mascara which is discerning since the name of this is "voluminous". First off it is a dry formula so if you prefer wet formulas, this isn't for you. Now the lengthing ability of this is out of this world and I do believe it helps hold a curl. With one coat it looked fluttery and natural. I wanted more drama, more black, and most importantly, more volume.. With a second coat it started to look weird...not clumpy just weird and spidery. I tried combing through the 2nd coat with a clean mascara wand and it did not help with the clumpy weird fiber build up. Now the second time I used this I skipped the second coat and used the tip of the wand to hit the end of my lashes and add extra length. That worked nicely. Bottom line. not super black. not super volumizing. not what I wanted. It is however, superb lengthening, fluttery, natural looking with one coat. I will continue using for days where I am doing errands and want a natural look in one easy step. I have also thought about layering another non fiber mascara on top, may be a good layering mascara for those who like layering different formulas.
Great mascara; not too wet, not too dry. It allows for a LONG, fluttery dramatic look. Doesn't flake or smudge and results in almost fake lash flutter. Good price, packaging's just fine. I layer 4 coats and it doesn't clump. Awesome!
Love! This does a great job of extending my lashes and making them look so long and lush! My lashes are only average, and nothing to write home about without mascara- and this takes them to WOW! This mascara is a great alternative to false lashes or extensions, and wears wonderfully. The removal is a bit more "involved" because of the wear of the product and the fiber, but I use an oil remover, so don't have any troubles with gentle massaging until my lahes come clean. All in all, I'm super impressed and will definitely be repurchasing.
