Don't be deceived by the fat long.....brush (clean up your dirty thoughts). This is a very subtle mascara that is great for natural everyday use. When I first tried it I was thrown off by how large the brush was but was relieved when I found it was not clumpy. Of the many many mascaras I have tried this feels the greatest. It left my lashes feeling soft not crunchy and did not run. When I had to wash it off I didn't scrub off to wash it clean.
Though Clinique High Definition Mascara is my HG, this mascara is a close second. This mascara makes your lashes dark, long, thick, and soft. The only issue I have with it is that it takes a while to apply. I had to brush my lashes for several minutes to get the desired result. Other than that it's great! I'm a sucker for huge mascara wands and I'm not a fan of anything with the plastic comb-like wands, which make my lashes look like long twigs.
i got this in black/brown. i naturally have super long thick eyelashes, but i got this as a present and decided to use it anyway just for rare occasions (since i dont really wear make up). it leaves little clumps of mascara and sticks the lashes together...but i can make it worse i guess. i think it would work better for someone with thinner eyelashes because mine are pretty thick so it gives me some problems. i think the color is nice and i kind of like the mascara, i mean ill use it the few times i do :). oh and i think the tube is cute lol
I do like the look of this mascara, subtle yet noticeable, and it does not clump. However, it gave me panda eyes. My lashes do not particularly special or with great volume, so I don't think it is worth it to bear with the smudging.
I bought this because I am a sucker for natural or "healthy" makeup. Everyone is different but honestly it isn't the best mascara for me because I want sky high lashes that curl very much. It made my lashes look clumpy when I look straight ahead but my from my profile the lashes looked better. The benefits of this macara is it has olive oil which probably improve the health of your lashes and it is super easy to come off unlike other mascaras that take 50 percent of your eyelashes of everytime you use. its not a too die for product but I like the packaging and the healthiness of it so I may buy again only if I have extra cash to burn.
Healthy Volume is the first Neutrogena mascara I've ever worn and I'm thinking that Neutrogena should stick to skincare. Not only does it not volumize, it smudges in 5 minutes. Okay, so I'm exaggerating. It smudges in 30 minutes. I didn't have any trouble with clumping and the Carbon Black color was a very nice rich black. However, this mascara does not volumize or lengthen. It would be a nice mascara for someone who already has very full lashes. This mascara might build volume on thick lashes but it can't build volume on wimpy lashes like mine. This is no DiorShow. Although I'm a freak and almost every mascara smudges on me by the end of the day, 30 minutes is a new record. I'm giving this 2 lippies just because it's not the worst mascara I've ever used.
I bought the waterproof version. After applying a couple coats, I could hardly tell if it was doing anything. It took a LOT of coats to get any real effect. The brush is big and kind of hard to use. It makes it particularly difficult to coat the bottom lashes. I DO like that it doesn't clump my eyelashes together. I just wish it made my lashes look more dramatic.
this is my new favorite mascara!! i use it with false eyelashes and it work really well to blend them together. and when i use it by itself it still looks great!! My only complaint is that it's a little hard to use on my bottom lashes, but other then that, it is my new favorite!!
This mascara just goes to show what works for one does not work for all (which I have found to be especially true for mascara anyway). This gives me HUGE lashes. It volumizes, and thickens and after several coats truly do make my lashes look fake. I love massive, over-sized mascara brushes. Yeah they make it a little tougher to apply, but I find the results to be astounding. I fell in love with Benefit's BadGal, but Im so over paying $20 a tube for it. I bought this thinking the big brush would work as well, and boy was I right. I am so impressed with the results that I have from this. If you're a gal who gets good results from the large brushes, you gotta try this one too! You cant beat the price
So, this is not the kind of mascara that will give you crazy, dramatic, false-looking eyelashes. What this does is give you natural-looking lashes with a little more color and definition. The reason I tried this mascara is that my sensitive eyes always get red and itchy from mascara. Because this is more "natural" I figured it might help, and it did! So far, it's the one mascara I can use regularly that does not irritate my eyes. It does tend to dry out quickly, and I've noticed it flakes onto my cheeks more than other mascaras I've used, but, I'll put up with it if it means I can wear it without feeling like I have pinkeye!
