This is a HORRIBLE wand for those of us that have naturally curly lashes. I absolutely could not find a way to use it without getting mascara all over my lids.
The formula is meh... ok. Likes to clump, and doesn't have much staying power, preferring to give me that black eyed look instead.
I will not ever be repurchasing...
I really liked this mascara and I'm not a cover girl fan. It did dry out quickly though.
Great mascara for price, I like the wand, my boyfriend even told to me to turn sideways and said "your eyelashes grew" lol so thats a good thing in my books!! recommended
This mascara combined with clush crumper made my lashes look good. I hated the brush but after using it more found it to work okay.
I was so excited to try this mascara, but was so disappointed when I did. This mascara just makes my eyelashes look really short and clumpy. I have to use the water proof formula because I have extremely oily eyelids, but I don't think the waterproof/ non-waterproof has anything to do with it. I'll stick to my maybelline mascaras.
I love this mascara. At first I thought the brush was strange but after using it a while I really liked how it made my lashes look, plus the mascara never clumped. Very good product! I loved the packaging and size of the whole thing as well. Great!
Not a fan. Still trying to figure out the purpose of the oddly shaped applicator brush? It's thick on each end and thinner in the middle which is just awkward to use. Also it takes several coats to get any real coverage. Would not recommend or repurchase.
This one might well replace my beloved Maybelline Full 'n Soft as my HG mascara.
I bought it on impulse, and I've been avoiding Cover Girl mascaras in recent years because they all seem to have those wobbly rubber brushes that just don't work for me. But the store had the Flamed Out brush on display and I noticed that it had the stiff plush-type brush I like (although the hourglass shape looked a tad wonky) so I thought I'd give it a try. Am I ever glad I did.
For me, this mascara gives incredible definition -- think I'd have to put on about 10 coats before it would start clumping -- plus mega length and lift/curl. It really does live up to its name, creating "flamed out" lashes. Which is kinda unusual for me, usually I get the opposite of what it's supposed to do -- if it says "volume" I get length, "lengthening" I get volume. A bit tricky to do the lower lashes due to the thickness of the brush, but it's workable.
In short, a great mascara that delivers fantastic results, and you can't beat the price.
I usually splurge on mascara. I spend $20 plus and I wanted to cut back on spending. I noticed that all of my splurge mascaras had the hour glass brush. I was at Target one day and started to browse mascara. I noticed this one had the hour glass shape and was about $6. So if it didn't work, oh well. I'm now a forever fan of this. Works just as good as my Clinique and The Balm splurges. I hope Cover Girl never discontinues this!
Bought this expecting to hate it, since I haven't heard great things -- but I needed mascara and wanted to try something new. I'm glad I did, because I love it! I always have issues coating the eyelashes near the edges of my eyes, and the hourglass shape of the brush is a perfect remedy. The formula is good -- it doesn't clump and it builds easily. The packaging is kind of fun. No regrets! Would buy again.
