So, so much fun! This makes my eyelashes look sooo long and separates well, so that they are very slim and stand out (I like this... maybe some people want thicker lashes too). Downsides: not as conditioning as I'd like, and if I put the base coat on my inner lashes, I spend the day picking microfibers out of my eyes and crying my mascara down my face. But this is a very simple problem to solve. Also, this curls/holds my lashes enough that I don't feel like I need to curl them. Saves a step!
I'm allergic to the white base, and the brush for the black is bad...
it makes my lashes ugly and lot of mascaras are better for less money (L'Oréal Volimunous, Bourjois Volume glamour...).
I just bought this at sephora and I can't believe it has'nt gotten a higher rating than this. I normally use lancome's primer and mascara, but this is even better. NO mascara has ever made my lashes this long. I can see how some girls might not like because it does'nt offer much volume or curl. Its all length and if you have a problem with your lashes curling up on you in the outer corners of your eyes, this mascara will help staighten them out. I have never found a mascara to help me with that.If you like a lengthening mascara that doesn't clump or gunk on you, then this is it!
I love this mascara because its 2 steps! You prime/pump your lashes up with one side, and it dries very quick, and then you coat w/the color mascara and your lashes just look oh soo perfect and dont fall back down! They stay the way you pumped and lashed them out!
I have a love/hate relationship with this mascara. Often I just use the white side with my Voluminous. A pain to use and get right, but when it's time to go out at night, I reach for this without fail. I've bought three tubes now... Wow.
This mascara wasn't what I had hoped it would be:-( The reason I didn't slash it down to one lippie was because it wasn't absolutely horrible, but for the price and the extra effort to put on both the primer and the mascara, I would rather save time and money and use Loreal Voluminous or Lash Out.
This is the only mascara that I have ever repurchased. My short little lashes look fuller and it doesn't clump or smudge underneath my eyes (that was a big problem for me, since my skin is oily/ combo). I like how there are the two steps and it actually works.
Let's put it this way, I was duped! Some of the white fibres stayed on a little and when I put on the brown layer, they disappeared, and I don't mean coated...the white fibres got tugged away. Maybe it was my poor application, but after using it 3 times, I gave up, and it has been rotting away ever since.
Yuck, I don't think this works very well. The black side is horrible, didn't do anything for my lashes, just made them stick together. The white side is decent, if they sold the white side by itself I would buy that. But overall, not worth my hardearned $16, there are much better mascaras out there. Sadly, I don't think these double sided ones work that well, as Loreal's double extend did nothing for me either.
I bought this in brown and I was pretty disappointed after using it. The primer end seemed a bit clumpy and it was then difficult to put enough of the brown color over the white to disguise it. Overall, I looked more fit to go stand on the street corner than to report to my federal job. Definitely a negative! I am wondering if I got an older tube as I ordered it from Sephora and maybe it works better if it is fresher. Every once in a while I get it back out and try again to get those long, thick lashes, but no luck. Overall, I prefer Almay Bright Eyes Mascara.
