This mascara is great applying it. It makes my lashes look good. But I put this on at about 7:30 am and by 11:00 I had one of my friends at school asking me if I had eyeliner on on my bottom lashes. 1, I don't wear eyeliner, 2, I didn't even apply mascara to my bottom lashes! Once I run out of this, I'm trying Falsie's instead. How could I possibly get mascara from my top lashes down to under my eyes when there was no mascara on my bottom lashes?
I'm generally not a fan of waterproof mascara because I seem to always have a very hard time getting them off. But, I was in a pinch (going to a concert in the rain!) and really needed a waterproof formula, so I tried this one. It was the cheapest I could find (5 bucks) so I figured if I hated it that I wouldn't lose too much money. I was pleasantly suprised! I've never tried the regular version, so I didn't know what to expect. Nice, volumized, separated, black lashes! The formula didn't flake or smudge, and held up very well in the weather conditions I was in. And, I can easily remove it! Score! I will definitely use this and repurchase for whenever I need a waterproof formula.
I stray because I'm fickle but always come back to this and have for about 7 + years. This delivers, plain and simple. Volume? Check. Seperation, lack of clumps, no flaking, smearing? Check, check, and check again. But the main reason is it looks good. Does it look good for all of the above, well yes, and probably a combination of that and the formula, brush shape etc. Whatever it is, my lashes look lush, and yet still like lashes on a human not a mannequin, not false, just enhanced and pretty.
Often mascara makes lashes look thicker but not in an attractive way, instead makes them look like stubs. I have very long lashes but I want volume, and no "stubs." This gives me that and I only like the wp formula. Stays on, yet washes off easily, no tugging. Wiggle this at the base of your lashes, then slowly upwards towards the outer corners. This helps "fan" lashes out like most DS mascaras don't for me, comparable to Lancome Hypnose in that way (but ironically, not the wp version of that which is awful imo).
Great value and a modern classic in DS makeup with good reason.
I like the bristles on this brush, they seem to catch your lashes well and prevent clumping. The definition appears to be cleaner than that of other mascaras and application is way easy. I like that this product really does what it says it does, it adds really nice volume. But on top of volume, it adds a bit of nice length however, the curl isn't as impressive. After curling my lashes, and apply just a single coat of mascara, my lashes tend to uncurl throughout the day. However, my lashes still remain thick and lush.
Overall, a great mascara for anyone.
It's an okay product. It does everything, lengths and voluminzes! But a big down side is that... it has fall out :(! Throughout the day I would notice the mascara flaking, which is a BIG no no. If this was not a big con for me, I would repurchase. It may because I am Asian, and have the short, straight-down-ward point lashes. I don't know, but I wouldn't buy this again...
As with ANY mascara, proper application must be made for it to look good. You can't expect to pull out the wand and be ready to apply. That being said, this has got to be one of the better mascaras I've used and the price can't be beat. It thickens, lengthens, and separates the lashes. However, there are two downsides: 1) It kind of smells - though the odor goes away after it dries; 2) It is a pain to remove - which goes for most waterproof mascaras. Overall, a great product and definitely something more practical than buying $30+ mascara since its expiration date is shorter than most makeup products.
I really like this.. My only complaint is how hard it is to remove.
EDIT: This smudges like crazy on me! Changed my rating significantly.
I keep coming back to this mascara. It really does add lush volume, and I like the silky application. Only complaint: it smudges a bit undereye until it dries, but my lashes are naturally long, so that could have something to do with it. Unless a miracle mascara comes on the market, this is my brand.
At first I did not want to buy this product because it was an oldie, or one that has been in the market for awhile. When I ran out of my HG mascara, fiberwig, I saw that this was on sale at a drugstore, so I bought it. I really thought that it was going to smudge, my biggest fear, but to my surprise it rarely smudged! I admit at first it come off very liquidy, but you just have to let it dry. And it does add volume to my lashes and length, more on volume.
I can't say that I liked this product. The pigmentation was good, but volume? No. It actually made my fairly thick lashes look stringy. Not a good look. Also, it takes forever to dry. I applied on my top and bottom lashes very lightly and drove to work. When I got to work, I did my usual check up in the mirror before going in... I had mascara all over my brow bone and my under eye. And I'm not sloppy! It was a nightmare to get it off also.
