I love this mascara. I find it makes my eyelashes long and voluminous. Love that it doesn't clump, but find the brush could be a little more sturdy.
For me, what really made my experience with this mascara was the brush. It was so big an hard to really get in he lashes. I find the brush gave me less control which ended up in my lashes hitting my lid and crease transferring the product there as little black smudges.
For sure NOT going to repurchase an going to go back to my holy grail; L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black.
i really like this product, when i layer it i get massive lashes with lots of volume. I often use in conjunction with the covergirl lash blast mascara. have repurchased this item twice, really like the formula.
I MAY possibly have found a mascara to give my beloved Voluminous a decent run for the money. I got this in Very Black and have been very pleased with it.
First of all, I love the brush. I dislike the plastic bristle brushes and this one is big and fluffy. It is on a flexible wand so I can easily work it into the base of my lashes. While it doesn't give me AS much volume as my L'oreal, it comes pretty damn close. The area where it definitely trumps my Voluminous is that it holds curl fantastically and never makes my lashes feel gummy or sticky. I'll always have a place for it in my mascara rotation.
Ive been using this stuff since it came out, and can I just say its AMAZING.Literally my hg mascara! I have very long and dark eyelashes naturally, but theyre a bit thin. After I apply 2 coats of this they're full of volume, very dramatic, longer, and no clumps! The only problem is that it dries out fairly quickly..But that's only because I use it so often! Im on like my tenth tube..(:
I bought 3 of these 2 for myself and 1 for my twin sis after she raved. Dare I say I love this even more than my previous staple, Falsies. The brush is amazing, separating and giving volume to my lashes. The gel-mousse formula is definitely different from any other mascara formula I have tried.
This worked ok for me. It didn't smudge or flake but clumping was a problem and I'm not a fan of the brush.
Ok, it did make my lashes look plush. And I could layer the mascara on after my lashes had dried without making it look like spiders were sitting on my eye balls so thumbs up there. But honestly, nothing too spectacular here. It does layer very nice but I did have to put quite a bit of effort into getting the effect that I want. I had to work to get volume and length was decent. Like I said, my lashes looked plush but that's what they advertised. I would buy this mascara again for a natural, everyday looking mascara. I liked the shape of the wand but felt that the formula of the mascara lacked in buildability where is my complaint here.
If you're looking to try a new Maybelline mascara for volume try the Rocket mascara. It'll give you tons volume but can get a little clumpy your first couple of applications until you get the hang of it.
I won this from a contest on youtube, it was packaged and new. At first i hated it, took forever to dry and didn't even volumize. It grew with me. It is defenitlely OVERHYPED. It isn't that great. There are better mascaras out there, ladies! I would not but this, It is retail $7-8 and honestly not that great. It is wet, doesnt volumize that much, and doesnt seperate. Do not buy.
I adore this mascara. I've never been picky about my mascara and never believed the hype (or literally bought into it), but I was intrigued by the idea of a mascara that didn't make my lashes stiff and came across this new gel mousse formula. I love it. It makes my lashes look HUGE! It's lightweight & doesn't take 12 makeup wipes to remove. A winner definitely.
Note: I purchased the regular formula. I have the H20 proof also but I do NOT like that. It's a much drier formula and makes my lashes clump.
