This mascara is one of the worst ones i've tried. I picked it up on a whim and decided to try it out as i like plastic "comb" brushes. When you take the wand out, there is barely any product on it. I had to dip the brush so many times, and even then it felt like there was nothing on my lashes. It doesn't clump and separates the lashes, i'll give it that. But I did find that it flaked off which i hate. If you don't wear a lot of mascara, you might like this, but for those who like a decent amount of mascara on their lashes, don't waste your time or money on this - it isn't for you.
The pros regarding this mascara are: it doesn't clump!
It gave me more of a natural look, not too much volume or length. I curl my lashes and found this mascara did make them straighter hours later. I tend to like a mascara with more volume or thickness.
I won't repurchase due to the fact my lashes were straight hours later. Too bad because it's a nice mascara if you like a more natural defined look. At least that it the way it turned out on me (everyone's lashes are different).
Pretty good mascara. It doesn't clump that much but it also doesn't thicken lashes that much. Still, this is definitely the most clump-free mascara I've tried so far, though it DOES get clumps if you apply too many coats of mascara. I'll probably repurchase sometime in the future, but not soon. I'm going to try Maybelline's TheRocket first since I've read that they're pretty much the same as CG's Clump Crusher but also offer a waterproof version as well as thickness.
What a disappointment. My HG, Loreal Splash Out has been DC'd, so I'm always on the hunt for a new DS mascara.
My lashes are pretty good. CG Clump Crusher actually made them look bad. Instead of thickening them up, this wet formula thinned them out by getting a few to stick together so it looked like I had about five lashes per lid. I don't know what the deal was with this formula, but it made my pre-curled lashes stick straight.
I bought brown/black to soften my make-up since I'm getting a tad older, but this wasn't dark at all. It was light brown.
Luckily I had a $3 off coupon, so I don't feel like it was a total waste of money. Never again.
I love the color on the tube, very pretty bright green.
as for the product itself (heh, I'm a total sucker for packaging) I mean, it's not necessarily a bad mascara, it's actually quite wonderful if you're going more toward natural looking lashes but if you're looking for the WOW factor I'd skip out on this one.
however, the way I found that makes this mascara work beautifully is if you use it to smooth out clumps other mascaras may have made.
I usually use diff mascaras but always finish up with this one because it smooths clumps, separates my lashes and gives them a flared out effect that I like.
didn't give it 5 lippies because it's nothing I can't see myself being without-- it's just nice to have.
well this does what it says that it will do. no clumps and my lashes were defined. gave me natural looking lashes. however, that's not enough for me. i like the very dramatic, super full/long false lash look and this does not give that, so no i won't repurchase.
At first I was not impressed by this mascara, but after figuring out how to use the wand properly I am so in love with this!! It really does not clump whatsoever and is great for defining your lashes as a base coat. However, does not do much in terms of volumising or lengthening. I use it in conjunction with my maybelline collossal and get amazing lashes
BACKGROUND INFORMATION: My lashes are long enough to achieve a natural look, but they can't accomplish the look I'm going for without serious help. They're relatively thin as well, so I was drawn in by the promise of 200% more volume (though I knew that claim couldn't possibly be true). My lashes are also light, so I always purchase the darkest shade without fail.
PRICE/AVAILABILITY: I found this for about $7 at Wal-Mart. I believe that's par for the course for a CG mascara, though I usually pay no attention to their mascaras. It can be found at all drugstores across the U.S.
PACKAGING: Bright lime-green tube that tapers at the end. Curved wand with plastic bristles. The tube drives me nuts! Since it tapers at the bottom, it doesn't balance well. I usually knock it over at least once. I could also stand for the handle to be slightly smaller. It's rather large for my hand, but it's still workable.
PERFORMANCE: Honestly, I didn't realize how much I liked this mascara until I stopped using it! I'll admit I've never been impressed with CG's mascaras, though many others swear by the LashBlast formula. The promise of no clumps with exceptional of volume drew me in. Did it deliver? Not entirely, but close. It gave me nice, defined, nonclumpy lashes. "Blackest black" was more charcoal, but it still added decent color. 200% volume? Nowhere near! However, still a lovely amount. It gave me everything I desired ... thick, fluttery, doll-like lashes ... but not enough length. Sadly, I have to use a lengthening mascara in addition to this, but I believe it's worth it. I also have to use about 5 coats of this to get the desired effect. But as I said before, it's worth it.
SUMMARY: I believe this will become a permanent part of my beauty arsenal. A CG mascara I actually adore ... hm. An unusual concept for me, that is. This gives plenty of volume, but not enough length. When used alone, it creates a nice natural look. The addition of a lengthening mascara is required to achieve the drag queen-esque look I prefer when it comes to lashes (okay, so I don't like my lashes quite that extreme, but close enough).
Bought this recently. To me, it's nothing special. I use it with The Rocket. Neither are anything awesome or amazing. They don't have any "Wow" factor or holy grail factor for me. Some YT videos show the mascara as buildable & great. I'm not disappointed per se but it's just nothing special for me. I'd say it lives up to the claim & doesn't clump. But I don't feel it thickens my lashes. continued >>
Separates lashes well
FLAKES. All over.
Lengthening is temporary because flakes so much off the tips.
Brush shape totally unnecessary and awkward.
There are better mascaras for the same price out there. Anything from Rimmel is great, but Sexy Curves and Glam Eyes are my favorites. I'll use this on casual days but I'm sticking with my HG Benefit They're Real for work.
