I hated the wand on this mascara! It is thick on one end and narrow on the other and very awkward to use. Plus the formula irritated my eyes.
I received a sample of this mascara at sephora for my birthday. I was turned off by the wand at first, but happy it wasn't a plastic wand. I received so many compliments that day, the mascara held up the entire day and made my lashes look amazing. I went out that weekend and bought the full size. I can't believe this made my new holy grail mascaras. ((Tears)) this was a total hit.
I dont know what it is about this stuff but YES it does the damn job! and WELL. i love this, cannot rave enough about it.
I got this mascara as the Sephora Birthday gift, and at first I really liked it. However, about an hour after I put it on, my husband asked me if I had been crying. I went and looked in the mirror, and this had smudged all over my eyes.
I always have some trouble with mascara smudging, but this was by far the worst! I liked the brush, but the smudging was insane!
Why the negative reviews? This mascara is great! The wand is enormous, but the tapered tip makes it pretty easy to get into corners. This gives me big, LONG lashes with a dramatic look, which I love. Does not flake or run during the day which is incredibly important. Love it!
I got a sample of this from Sephora and I was skeptical because of the strange wand, but it ended up being amazing. I usually use Clinique High Impact and have re-purchased that several times, but now I'll be buying MUFE because it really did lengthen and thicken without clumping. The wand is great -- the thin end gets every lash in the corners and the chunky end makes your eyelashes winged at the ends.
I also got this in my Sephora bday gift, and I was glad it was free. I paired it with my Dior primer so it didn't flake nor smudge but all the same on my other eye I topped with my Loreal Butterfly mascara and that actually looked better. So nothing special about this one, was hoping it would be even better than my loreal for volumizing but no luck.
I got this mascara as a part of my sephora VIBROUGE gift. It came with a lipstick and eyeliner from the same company.
At first I was shocked by the size of the mascara brush... It was huge! But wow! It made my lashes look long! I have pretty average lashes but I really like how this mascara made then look thicker and longer... And even better when I curled my lashes. It doesn't flake and it didn't even smudge when I had to run under the pouring rain. It also can hold my curl for a good 5-6 hrs before it started to droop again. I will definitely consider buying the original size.
I really don't like this mascara. The first time I used this, it gave me a fluttery, pretty look with a bit of length and volume and fairly seperated lashes. However, it smudged. Also, after that initial application, it seemed to be really goopy- somehow both thick, almost stringy, and really wet. I felt like I had a hard time controlling how much product went on, and my lashes stuck together.
As for the wand, I like the size and I think the cone shape makes it really easy to get at the inner lashes. The tip always seems to have a glob of mascara on it no matter how much I scrape it off, and that kind of defeats the purpose of the shape.
I natural have long eyelashes, but like most Asians, they grow straight down. Therefore, my main wish with a mascara is to have them hold a curl. This mascara was great since I was out from 8 AM to 11 PM and my lashes were still relatively perky by the time I washed my face. It's extremely black and lengthens beautifully with decent volume. However, I would not by this again because it's ridiculously high-maintenance. It dries so slowly and smudges like crazy. It started smudging after about an hour so I had to keep going to the bathroom to rub off the smudges. It's too bad, because other than that, this worked well.
