I don't get a lot of volume from this mascara. It mostly leaves clumps on my lashes that I have to comb out. The small brush is okay, but the large brush doesn't easily go into the corner of my eyes. I get a bit of mascara on my lids, too. Not really impressed.
This is a really good mascara! The double-ended wand with two different formulas is a great idea and the bottom lash formula is amazing, I had no trouble applying with the smaller bristles and no smudging after a full day of wear. The top lash formula is slightly less amazing (which is why I rated this 4 lipsticks instead of 5); it feels dry when you put it on and if you used more than two coats, it would definitely get spider-y and clumpy. But it holds the curl beautifully (after a full day, my lashes were just as curly as they had been that morning!) and the brush is a good size/shape to get all the lashes.
I pay attention to my eyes more than my whole makeup . I love this mascara it really brings out my eyes and it's nice !! But I do my mascara routine to really make them pop ! But it's nice brushes !!
I have buyers remorse from this mascara. The brush for the top lashes is weird and twisted, it is clumpy and flakes off, the mascara is really hard to remove and it wreaks havoc on my lashes trying to remove it. I noticed my lashes were falling out alot more upon using this product. And the lower lashes side was no better. It also clumps and leaves residue after the first hour of wear. Craptastic product, would not buy again or recommend to my friends.
I like this product only for the lower lashes side of the mascara. I find that it's perfect for getting my little lashes in the corners of my eyes. I would only buy it again for the lower lashes side of the mascara. I don't like the upper lashes side of the mascara. I think its clumpy and heavy. If it weren't for the lower lashes side I'd throw this product out. The price isn't too bad but I think they should have separated the lower and upper lashes sides into two mascaras. That way, there would be more product and an option not to buy the upper lashes side. Overall, The only thing I like about it is the lower lashes side. I think this was a creative attempt by Maybelline by having a two-in-one mascara , but I really don't like the upper lashes side. I give it a three for because I love the lower lashes side.
Just bought this yesterday....I regret it. I decided to try it after seeing commercials on TV and reviews from my friends.
It was extremely clumpy on my lashes and didn't really do much for my lashes. And it took me forever to get off. The brush for the top lashes wasn't big enough. The brush for the bottom lashes was the only good thing about this product. I will not be purchasing again and I wish I could get my money back.
This should be renamed "The Clumper" by Maybelline. Honestly, what were they thinking? This stuff is dry and doesn't stick to your lashes only your eyelids. When I finally applied the third coat (really???) I could see it on my lashes. Two hours later when I looked in the mirror I had racoon-eyes. I wasn't wearing any moisturizer or foundation or anything beneath my eyes and it still smeared all over. This is going back to CVS. What crap!
This is a great mascara. It holds the curl beautifully, thickens. I don't have a ton of lashes anymore so I start with the brush for the top lashes and then use the brush for the bottom on top as well. The only thing I don't love is that it is a bit dry in the tube, seems almost empty when it is brand new, but I am going to keep on using and see what happens. So far so good.
I've got stick straight lashes that are short, and not to mention that I don't have very full lashes. But I love this mascara! It holds my curl so well, it doesn't smudge to my bottom lashline, it lengthens and volumizes with little to no clumping!
Two things I don't like about this mascara is the wand for the top lashes. I'm not a big fan of it, it takes a little getting used to (I think). And another thing, maybe I'm using a bad makeup remover (Neutrogena Oil-Free) but this mascara is seriously so hard to get off!
But it's totally worth it because it makes my eyelashes so much thicker and longer that I love it! Sometimes I even use the bottom lash mascara on my top and it still works amazing (I never use bottom lash mascara) I'm almost out, and I always try new mascaras so I won't necessarily repurchase immediately. But I definitely will buy it again!
what a disappointment. the formula does not adhere to my lashes at all, no matter which brush you use. if you've ever had the experience where you try to put mascara on your lashes and basically the wand deposits the mascara all over your eyelids but none on your lashes, using this mascara will be deja vu of that sad time. it took forever to get any of this stuff to stick to my lashes and it was a messy job requiring lots of cleanup with a q-tip afterwards.
the crazy thing is that the smaller brush didn't help! in my experience, a tiny brush can do wonders with my nearly invisible lower lashes, but this brush + mascara was shockingly terrible. i tried to work with this product for several days but lost patience and returned it. my favorite mascara of all-time is the maybelline colossal cat eyes in waterproof. it's awesome for short, straight, thin lashes. it beats out all - diorshow, lancome, tarte, clinique, estee lauder, etc. for giving beautiful drama to my thin little lashes AND holding curl, which is what makes lashes stand out.
