I purchased the full size Buxom lash at Sephora as an impulse buy because I heard great things from the employees there, usually they steer me pretty well so I went ahead and got it. It is definitely a very nice mascara, however, I am not really sure it's worth the price tag ($19) every 3 months.
On the plus side, it separates lashes very nicely and does not clump for me even with multiple coats. It also does not flake. This alone makes it better than a lot of mascaras I've tried in the past.
On the other hand, the mascara is not waterproof and can take a long while to dry. Because of this, it definitely can smudge, especially for me on the lower lashes. I am not a big fan of the brush shape, although I know there are others out there that love it. The brush is too thick for me to be able to easily coat my short inner lashes.
I would not say it is the best mascara out there for volumizing or lengthening, I have to coat my lashes at least 3 or 4 times to get really good volume. However, when I do, I am always very pleased with how my lashes look.
I probably would not buy the full size by itself again, but I definitely recommend getting it in a kit.
I got as a Freebie from Sephora so I can't comment on the price, but it's not a bad mascara. It doesn't build a lot of length, but it also doesn't flake or run. Above average.
This is such a popular volumizing mascara and Im not quite sure why. Was not a fan of the brush first off the bristles were hard and hurt my eyes. It was also difficult to get the inner lashes and It has a very large brush which Im not in love with either. It did give some volume but nothing special good seperation though
I do *not* have lush, full, thick natural lashes, so I'm always on the hunt for a mascara that makes me look like I have all those things. Winner! The Buxom mascara is fantastic. One of the things I like best (beyond the fact that it makes me look like I'm wearing false eyelashes) is that my eyelashes stay soft. They don't get brittle and funky feeling.
There's minimal smudging, but I am 100% willing to deal with that in return for lashes like these. And it's truly, truly minimal.
Got this as a sample from sephora. I dont think its the best mascara and it doesnt do much volumizing but I love how easy this is to put on in the morning when im in a rush. It makes me lashes look nice and polished and lengthens them. i am going to buy the full size because the have a good deal at sephora right now with this in a kit
I received a sample of this from Sephora. It definitely has it's good points. It separates well, doesn't clump. But I didn't get much thickening or lengthening from it. It gave me a nice look, but more natural than I was expecting from something called "Buxom". I usually don't like this type of brush, but this one was nice to use. I have a terrible problem with getting the raccoon eye look under my eyes from nearly every mascara I try. This one is no exception, however it is much more minimal than most others. It's a nice enough mascara, but not one that would make me pay $18 for it or whatever it costs.
Got a sample of this, and it has become one of my go-to mascaras. My only complaint is that it takes a long time to dry, so I often get lash marks in my undereye area.
I got this mascara for free at Sephora a couple of years ago. It's a wet formula & it takes a while to completely dry. I don't usually like rubber mascara brushes (I don't feel they're as effective), but this brush didn't bother me as much for some reason. The color is a deep, intense black. I used this mascara along with my usual mascara. This mascara by itself, didn't really lengthen that well. But, it did a great job at volumizing. So, I used my usual mascara & then layered this mascara on top of that one & I achieved a great, dramatic look. Overall, I wasn't dissapointed with this mascara, but I wouldn't buy this again because I would have to use this along with another mascara to achieve the right look. So, I'll stick to my favorite from L'oreal.
i love this mascara! you can layer on coat after coat and it won't clump at all. separation is good, the colour is a deep nice black and it really lengthens your lashes. overall teriffic mascara, definitely my favourite
I got a full size of this mascara free during a VIB promotion at Sephora. It is as expensive as Fresh Supernova (my former favorite) or any of the other good high end ones, and it is worth the price IMO. I'd gladly purchase it in the future. The formula is nice and wet enough so it doesn't dry out right away and clump your lashes. My lashes are naturally black, curly, and thick, but I'd really like some more length when I wear eye makeup. The lash brush has little bristles that comb your lashes neatly so they end up looking feathery and long rather than spidery. It gives a natural yet alluring look for eyes. Highly recommended!
