I was lucky enough to receive this mascara from a Maybelline giveaway and I love it. I'm not sure it's still available in Australia, I haven't seen it anywhere in a long time, which is so disappointing.
The thing I love the most probably is the thin brush. It gets to every lash, which the brushes of my other mascaras don't do. Because of this, it's also fantastic for the bottom lashes, the chances of getting mascara under your eye (or on your eyelid/brow bone which happens to me sometimes with other mascaras) is minimal! It's fairly quick drying too.
The reviewer below me mentioned it isn't volumising, and I have to agree. But it lengthens and separates like you wouldn't believe! It also doesn't clump, which is a bonus.
I apply roughly two coats, and it just seems to enhance my lashes, they still look natural, and not like I've put a ton of mascara on them. I'd like to thank the brush/formula/whatever it is(!) separating the lashes for this.
Works well for lower lashes but is not a volumne mascara. I would not recommend it for anything but lower lashes.
This is the second mascara I ever bought! It was a clear upgrade from my Revlon mascara, which was goopy and disgusting, so I really liked this. In fact, I had gotten "two for the price of one" at walgreens!
It separates lashes nicely and is best for a natural look. However, I definitely won't repurchase. After trying Covergirl's Lash Blast, I feel this mascara is too toned down.
did a greaat job of seperating my lashes no clumping at all but didnt lengthen or give volume :/
This mascara is great if you have short sparse lashes because it will "discover" them. I like it for lower lashes because it finds them, doesn't make them TOO long and doesn't smudge.
As many have already stated, this is great for the lower lash line on probably most. If you have fine lashes, that are average or longer, and a lot of them, this WILL work for you. But if you have thick lashes, or are looking for volume, put the mascara down and step away slowly. This is going to do NOTHING for you. My lashes are the former and I LOVE it. I use this or CG Lash Exact exclusively now, whatever is nearest. HG status.
This mascara separates, gives great definition and some good length. Nothing crazy, it just finishes my every day makeup. When I want a bit more drama, I double up on CG Lash Exact and use this on lower lashes (along with fabulous shadow and liner of course). Highly recommend on the right lashes.
I love the small brush - that got it the one rating. I purchased this product twice (the second time was obviously by accident.) Tried it both times (just in case) and threw it away both times.
Great for lower lashes! Small brush lets you get every nook and cranny. No clumping! My only complaint is I wish they made it in brown.
This is THE best mascara for lower lashes! The small, thin wand and mascara formula makes it perfect, and the price point is right on. I gave this a 4 because it does nothing for my upper lashes. I wipe the wand off then brush it on in a sidesweeping motion,towards my outer lashes, slightly wiggling as I go. It gives me a slighty smokey liner look. It never flakes or smudges on me.
Try this mascara in the technique Ive discribed and youll be happy you did!
As stated by a few. Very small brush is great for 'discovering' those small, short lashes that get forgotten with a regular brush. My lower lashes (as well as the inner corners on the top) are really short and when I try to use mascara on them, I get a huge glob (top) or smudge (bottom). The brush on this allows me to get to them w/o touching the surrounding skin.
As far as the formula. Normal. Doesnt flake. Doesn't come off easily w/ just water but comes off fine w/makeup remover.
Would buy again for the brush alone.
