This is a reality check type of review. Depending on what you expect from this product, this is either for you or not.
What it offers:
1. Due to its tubing formula it lasts forever and will never smudge (but it does flake a little).
2. Its unusually small brush suits small eyes as it makes it easy to navigate through your lashes without mistakes or accidents.
3. The bristles on the brush are tiny and fine, and help to seperate well.
4. No crispy effect here - lashes remain soft.
What it DOES NOT offer:
1. No curling properties, even when used with a curler. For those with stick straight lashes look elsewhere. This won't lift you up.
2. Not much length or volume despite being advertised with the word "extension". In other words a very "natural" looking effect which you either like or not.
3. Not as black as i'd like. It does turn a little grey when dry.
Not sure about you but on the overall i don't think this product is as exceptional as others here have described. I consider this a trustworthy product but it delivers average results. It doesn't differ that much from the other cheaper tubing mascara i've tried Imju's Dejavu Fibrewig so i am not sure the price difference can be justified. Probably won't re-purchase. Next, i'll check out Helena Rubinstein.
So i compared it side by side with Dejavu Fibrewig (one eye with each) and disappointedly so, Dejavu gives me longer lashes and makes them blacker and glossier. Won't rebuy.
I have long, straight, thin lashes with oily eyelids.
Pros: washes off easily, smudgeproof, lengthening, small applicator
Cons: lacks volume, clumpy, expensive, weighs down lashes
Lash Power is the most expensive mascara I own ($22) and I personally don't think it's worth the price. I love that it's tube-technology but I find it to be comparable to L'Oreal's Double Extend. This thing can't a hold a curl to save its life.
The tiny brush drives me crazy but I like the results of this mascara. I love tubing mascaras & was looking for a better alternative to Fiberwig.
Others have said that this applies wet, but I disagree. For me it applies more on the dry side than wet & the tiny bristles of the brush require a lot of stroking to adequately coat my lashes, smooth them out & separate them while they're wet. It does indeed reach every lash for coverage. I use a Rx bimatoprost lash growth product, so with my longer lashes there's a lot of surface to cover. When it comes to makeup, the less work the better, & this mascara makes me work...but I still like it nonetheless. The fact that it washes off with just warm water is the reason I bought it. Piece of cake.
That said, after careful application it makes my lashes look pretty. They look nicely made up but not overdone. The formula adds a little thickness with an extra coat if I want & emphasizes lash length (though I don't need more length now, just definition & some body). Fiberwig never gave me any body no matter how many coats I applied, except for ugly spider lashes. This mascara does a great lightweight, smudge-free job without any flaking at all until I remove it.
I'd buy this again despite the extra work to put it on. I got it for $15 at Sephora. I would love if the brush was bigger or if the formula was wetter for quicker application & coverage. One lippie off. Tubing mascara is the only kind I'll wear & I hope more companies jump on the bandwagon with their own versions of it. It's an excellent concept.
Right now, this is my go-to mascara.
This is my favorite mascara. I have been using it for a few years now. It comes off with warm water so it lasts all day long without smudging or flaking or giving me raccoon eyes.
The tube is small and cute. The brush is the perfect size. I am asian & I have the almond eyes so this gets all of my lashes. Big brushes do not work for me. It also holds a curl well.
I absolutely love this mascara. Sometimes, for extra oomph I put on a more dramatic mascara & still put this over it to make sure I get the tubing effect so that it lasts all day. On a regular day I will wear this alone.
By far the best mascara.I have small eyes so mascara has a huge impact on them. I have tried all the famous brands and drugstore brands. ( I am a mascara slut I jump from one brand to the next in hopes to find a good one). I have found it. Love the tiny brush, no clumping, and I can layer on as many coats as I want. It stayed on all day!! Trust me that is no easy task. Even waterproof mascara leave me with raccoon eyes. I just don't understand how it stays on all day then come off easy with soap and water. Will repurchase
I love love love this mascara!!! It doesn't bleed on me at all. It doesn't clump and the wand gets all the lashes, even the tiny ones. To remove it, just use warm water. I purchased mine from Macy's for about $14.
I bought this for around 14 $ , because i really wanted to try this product out. It goes on wet, very buildable with next to no clumps at all. This product lasts throughout the whole day, yet comes off easily with warm water. Will repurchase !
I do like this mascara quite a bit, because of its wand that picks up almost all of the lashes, including those little baby ones that are difficult to pick up. Repurchasing, definitely
I LOVE this mascara! I have been using it for about 2 years now and while I have tried other products I always end up going back to this. It's moderately priced at $14.00. Not cheap, but not too expensive for me to replace regularly either. It is packaged well in a smallish tube that comes in a feminine, but not too girly box. The wand has small bristles that catch even the tiniest lashes and give a nice open-eyed look. It comes in two colors: Black Onyx and Dark Chocolate and I use either one depending on the look I want. This mascara does not give a dramatic effect, but a more natural and defined look, which I prefer. It gave great length and a small amount of volume to my short lashes. It is easy to remove with a cotton pad moistened with warm water. I just dampen the pad and hold it over my eye for about 30 seconds, then gently sweep it down until it the mascara is removed. It takes a little patience, but well worth not rubbing my eyes to get other waterproof mascaras off. It also comes off easily if I wash my face while showering. This is another great product from Clinique and will continue to buy. I hope they do not discontinue it!
YAY! This mascara is reminiscent of the old "Supermascara" which I was disappointed that Clinique discontinued. I use the brown, which is a nice medium brown for those of us who want soft definition. It goes on wet which is good cuz it doesn't clump and allows you time to "arrange" your lashes. It comes off easily with a wet cotton ball held gently against the lashes, then wiped off. It doesn't budge all day, just like it says. All in all, an excellent product....I just wish they'd find another preservative besides parabens.
