I got this mascara as a freebie when I ordered some mineral makeup. To me mascara was mascara. I have pretty full lashes so I don't really get too picky with this beauty product. After receiving this I am absolutely in love with the wand. I am very happy with this mascara. It doesn't clump on me or flake. I can get every tiny eyelash. I just bought another one cuz I totally adore this stuff.
Very nice mascara. I love the wand and it makes my lashes look long, dark, and beautiful. I got this as a free sample from the Bare Escentuals boutique and plan on buying the full size when I run out. I usually opt for light to dark brown mascaras because of my fair skin, but the black is nice for going out at night.
Love love love this mascara. I am mascara addict and tried almost every mascara available in Sephora. This is the best so far for me. I have short thin barely there lashes and the wand is perfect for defining everyone. Even the hard to reach bottom lashes. I use this in conjuction with maybelline great lash and my lashes look perfect everytime. I hope I can continue using this mascara for years!
I don't know if I would buy this at full price, but I would definitely use it again if it was part of a set or something. I kind of don't believe in buying mascara by itself, because it is so often part of a gift set or a GWP in one brand or another. I got the sample size as a free gift with purchase, and it is a very good mascara. I like the formula, it is very smooth and creamy, not at all clumpy, and I have been using this for awhile. The wand is average, I guess. I can make my lashes look very defined if I work with it a bit. It does smudge under my eyes a little bit, but not terribly.
I really love all the bare mineral products, especially this mascara. I have naturally long thick lashes, but my problem with most storebrands is clumping, which this one doesnt do at all! :) It has a great black glossy color, separates all my lashes perfectly, an leaves them soft feeling with no raccoon eyes! Price is kinda spendy, but i think this is one case where you get what you pay for!
This gave me no volume, but it did lengthen my lashes. But with no volume and unfortunatelly some clumps (maybe I should have used longer time to work with it), I had weird long spidy clumpy lashes. It is probably great for girls who already have full lashes, but need more length. No parabens, if I remember correctly
I have finally found my HG mascara, and this is it. First I love brown, and a good brown can be hard to find. I keep both the brown and black in my makeup kit. This goes on easily and I love the applicator, it's just the right size. It looks lovely and lasts all day. I have no smudging and no flakes. I like that it puts some ooomph in my lashes, but it is not over the top. I wear this everyday. I also use it for night and just apply heavier. People who like a big-volume mascara won't probably like this as much, as it provides length and definition and color, but not really volume. This is also the first mascara I have bought in ages that actually can make it through 3 months of use without clumping. I have tried mascaras ranging from $4 to $30 and this is the one I will stick with. LOVE it. Also like the lack of parabens and that it does not irritate my very sensitive eyes, EVER. Can't say enough.
i don't usually go for higher brand mascaras since drugstore mascaras work so well, but i got a sample of this and i really like it. the wand is pretty great...i have really small asian eyes, so it's hard to not make a mess of things, but this wand really makes it easy to coat every lash, separate and get into the corners. but i also really like the formulation. i like a lot of volume, lengthening is just a plus and this mascara does both. it does flake a bit, but again...it's a great quality mascara.
Got this as part of a set. Nothing special. I wouldn't buy this. There is no reason to buy expensive mascara when drugstore brands work just fine!!
Not the PERFECT* mascara, but it's darn close! The wand is desinged for you to be able to get EVERY lash, even the tiny corner lashes (both top and bottom!). It comes with a little instruction sheet that tells you techniques on how to achieve the perfect application. My ONLY problem with it is that it seems to get clumpy after a week or two and I have to take the brush, wash it and dry it, then stick it back in - then it's fine. I don't pump the brush and I don't wipe the mascara from the tip on the rim of the tibe - so I have no idea what's going on there!
It DOES make my lashes look longer and since it gets every little lash, I look like I have starlet eyelashes as well! I DO love this mascara, even though it's a wee bit expensive.... you do get a lot of product for your cash so I guess it evens out! Buy it, you'll be pleased!
*I say it's not perfect because I DO get flakes at the end of the day sometimes and because it tends to get clumpy fast for some unknown reason...
