I've bought ths wonderful mascara several times... for me currently it is the best one I have. For a HE mascara the price at $23 is lower than most. It holds the curl, is quite black and seems to make my short straight lashes look so much better. My only criticism is that its a little hard to take off.
Lets start out with saying how short, stubby and non-existent my lashes are... They really are that bad. Well this stuff makes them HUGE, I mean big long thick, borderline spider lashes! I have never used a mascara that made my lashes this gigantic before. And I have tried way too many mascaras! I use a few coats to get them super big, and it does start to get pretty clumpy if your not careful. But the hard plastic bristles do make it easier for multiple coats. And the little ball at the end is great for getting the corners of your lashes. But, there is a downside to this mascara. Throughout the day this stuff gets super dry, and crusty. It actually starts to hurt my eyes, and it feels like my lashes are going to break right off just by blinking. My eyes then get really dry and irritated. It stays on really well though, almost too well. And it holds a curl like none other. But when Its time to take it off.... it doesn't want to come off. Maybe its my makeup removers, I don't know. But this is very hard for me to remove. I usually give up and sleep with some of it still on. I have bought 4 tubes of this stuff, simply because it does its job so well. This is not something that I wear everyday, but when I want that extra wow-factor to my makeup. I definitely recommend this to those with the super short lashes!
I should probably start by saying that I prefer a soft, fluttery eyelash look, so most wham bam in your face lashes just aren't my thing.
That being said, this is still ranks as the second worst mascara I have ever used. To begin with, the end of the wand came out so cluttered with product, that even after wiping it off, it still put WAY too much mascara on my eyes, thus clumping up my lashes. My lashes actually looked thinner with this on becuase it looked like I had maybe 8-10 really thick lashes.
Secondly, after work, I noticed that some of the mascara had migrated down under my eyes- an astounding feat since I only apply mascara on my top lashes. I would surmise that part off the problem is this mascara can't hold up to extreme heat/humidity.
Lastly, despite the migration issue, this mascara was a royal b**** to get off. My eyes actually hurt after the abuse they received just from trying to remove this mascara.
All in all, this mascara is a nightmare. There are plenty of other high end brands that do great mascaras (MUF Smokey Extravagant is good, as is The Balm Cheater mascara), and I swear by Maybelline. Just don't waste your time on this.
Such an amazing mascara! Don't even hesitate to buy it, it'll be so worth it! I actually noticed that my normal lashes (basically invisible) grew after a few weeks of using this. LOOOVE it.
I love this mascara! When I compare it to any other mascara I use They're Real always wins. I'm able to build up my lashes so they're super thick and long! Other people claim it makes their lashes clumpy, but this doesn't really happen to me. As for the price, it is pretty steep, but I love make up and I don't mind spending more to get great results.
Way too expensive. I purchased this for around $50 at a department store after hearing all the hype about this and seeing amazing results. This mascara does give great length sometimes.
The issues I have with the problem as the formula it too gooey and applying this on my lashes feels like applying super glue. My eyelashes get very clumpy and combing them does not help. I usually have to take it off and try to reapply.
It works wonders for others but not always me so just be sure to make an informed decision and it's always worth a try because it might turn out to be your favourite mascara!
I'm currently onto my third tube of this, I LOVE it! It's great at separating and giving length, volume, and holding a curl. Of you use too much it can get clumpy, but it's not hard to avoid this. The tube lasts a long time, doesn't dry out and is as good towards the end of it's "life" as it is at the start. If doesn't smudge or flake, and it is difficult to remove, I usually use warm water and a washcloth to soften it and an oil based eye make up remover. If you don't want to spend $23 on the full size, there might still be the option of buying a sample size for $10, which will still last you ages.
I really love this mascara, it makes my eyelashes super long and defined!! It is very build-able and curls your eyelashes as well as lengthens. The only thing is that It can clump quite easily if you apply more mascara on already dry mascara. It stays on really well though. Overall a great mascara only a little pricey.
Only problem is the price...love how crazy it makes my eyelashes look!
Pretty good stuff.. Seperated & lengthens. Only con is it leaves your lashes sort of hard and can appear flaky.
