I have tried so many mascaras trying to find the perfect one. I thought I'd give this a shot as it was only 3.96 and if I could find decent stuff at budget prices that'd be great of course. After all, I just found ELF cream blusher I love for $1.00. This was terrible - I have very faint short lashes and this didn't even cover half my lashes. Right away it looked like half of it flaked off. Maybe it'd be good for someone with naturally dark long lashes that wanted to really work at applying it for a "natural" look? I say stay away! I heard their Lash Exact mascara is nice but haven't tried it yet.
Amazing lasting quality. So it clumps a little and doesn't add dramatic lashes, if waterproof and smudgeproof is what you're after, this delivers. I used it during a 6-hour mountain bike race in weather so hot, it turned my lip balm into liquid. Dirt, sweat, heat, rubbing eyes... I did it all, and it didn't budge. It washes off pretty easily with my facial soap or makeup remover. UPDATE: I like the non-waterproof one way better. It doesn't smudge at all and gives you much better lashes
I like the regular version of this, but this one was dry and did nothing for my lashes. The price was nice, less than $5 but the washable is so much better, and does not smudge anyway so this one is pointless.
I bought this mascara at a BOGO sale at Long's. I don't usually wear mascara, but after I bought this, I've been wearing it every day. I really like it and it's become my HG mascara. I love this stuff and it even stayed on in the shower and in the pool. It's so dirt cheap too!! I love this stuff!!
I've always gotten panda/ raccoon eye from waterproof mascara so I'm shocked that this product worked SO well. I applied it after curling my lashes, and it held the same curl all day. It did not clump. I have long, sparse lashes and while this did not really thicken, they did not get the more common spider look either. I wore this on a really, really rainy, humid day with lotsa running around-- and no smudges or smears or panda eyes! This also comes of quite easily for me when I use moisturizing almay eyemakeup remover. Really, really great waterproof!
Not recommended for contact lens wearers. I wear eyeliner, cream eyeshadow and powder eyeshadow daily, none of which had irritated my eyes. It wasn't until I wore CoverGirl Professional Waterproof mascara (black) that my eyes began to sting. This is probably due to the mascara flaking off. After curling my lashes, a couple of coats of this mascara creates a dramatic look. Even though it clumps during application, it is no worse than any other mascara you'll find for less than $5. However I strongly urge contact lens wearers to steer clear. Users sans contacts may not have these issues.
I liked this mascara. Didn't flake off like others. I have had a difficult time with my mascara from other brands wearing down. This mascara stayed dark. Didn't clump. The wand was perfect. Other more expensive brands have looked wrong for some reason. My lashes are naturally long and these gave them a great touch.
I don't really love this mascara but its one of the few mascaras that doesn't straighten my eyelashes after I use it. Its such a hassle to curl my eyelashes again after using mascara and it doesn't straighten my curls too much. It doesn't smudge either and its not hard to remove with makeup remover. Overall, its a good mascara-I just don't have too much definition with it. It doesn't really lengthen or volumize it to the point that it would be my HG. It also sometimes flakes into my eyes which stings a lot-this usually doesn't happen with other mascara.
I have been using this mascara since high school. It is the only thing I have found to truly define my lashes and it does not run! It does tend to dry out quickly but it is so cheap that I don't care. By far the best mascara I have found for the price and reliability.
This is my only everyday-mascara. It's very very good. I recommend giving it a try.
