I wanted to love this so badly. Perhaps because I'm a fan of the original Voluminous Millions mascara and I was really sucked in by the concept. False Fibers? I'll look like I'm wearing falsies? Sold! I scooped this up at Ulta in the shade "Blackest Brown". It goes on decently. The formula is thick but I didn't have any clumping issues. The wand is quite different from the original Voluminous Millions. It's shaped like a cone but with a flatter top. I am able to achieve pretty good lengthening but hardly anything in the way of volume. I want a mascara that can give me both! This looks good but doesn't give me that WOW factor I long to achieve with my lashes. It's not too difficult to remove which is a huge plus. Some mascaras require tons of effort to remove and this wasn't one of them for me. The packaging is aesthetically pleasing but shaped so strangely. It has odd points on it that I can see myself pricking my hand on as I reach for it in my makeup bag. I adore the gold because it reminds me of YSL, but the shape should be altered. Overall, I don't hate it. I simply find the the original Voluminous Millions to be much better.
This is a great mascara, I'm wondering if there was some kind of defective batch and that's why there are so many negative reviews? Mine wasn't flaky or clumpy at all, it built really well and lasted all day! I found another mascara by almay that I liked a little better for less money, but I don't think that diminishes the quality of this one.
This is the mascara that I keep coming back to. It gives great volume, some added length, and will last 24 hours! It gives a dramatic look that I love. The only con is that it can be difficult to remove - the fibers seem to come off in small pieces. However, I found that baby oil is helpful to make the fibers slide off the lashes. Definitely my HG mascara!
Possibly the worst mascara I have ever used. Smudges like hell within minutes of application, clumps my lashes together, and flakes like nobodies business.
I found this mascara to be awful! It was clumpy, dried out, and flakes horribly.
I can't believe these negative reviews! This mascara has done wonders for my almost non-existant eyelashes. They are long, full and no track marks. Layer it on for the full affect. The mascara wears all night, no problem. And, I curl my eyelashes, no problem. I have been looking for a product like this for a long time!
This mascara is clumpy and flaky in my opinion. It also smudged on my upper eyelid. It gave decent volume but due to the above I won't repurchase.
I am not sure about all the poor reviews on here...it seems we are reviewing different products...
I am always on the lookout for a good mascara. I do curl my eyelashes and typically use a waterproof mascara at least as a base coat to keep the curl but I didnt even need that with this mascara. Some of my fav mascaras are: Christian Dior, Buxom, and Givenchy.
-Package is not round so it doesnt roll around on my vanity
-Color is deep black
-Does not lengthen as much as i expected
-Wand is too long making it awkward to get adequate pressure when applying
-Must apply at least 2 coats to get volume/length
It really does make your eyelashes look thicker and longer :) The thickness doubled and so did the length. It made me look like I was wearing false eyelashes!
I saw a bunch of negative reviews and I don't know what their talking about. I love it and I will definitely buy it again! :)
Can you say gloppity, glop, glop? I've been wanting to try this out and I finally caved. I have long, straight lashes and I normally use WP mascara to hold curl, but I gave this a shot because I heard it holds like glue. That may be true, but this just glopped onto my lashes and they remained stick straight with no curl (after using an e/l curler) The wand is long and tapered and doesn't pick up too much product, which I really liked, but the formula didn't work for my eyelash type. Also feel the packaging is a bit tacky.
