Makes my lashes appear longer (but doesn't really make them much longer). Flakes a bit around my eyes. I also like the wand.
I like wearing this formula at work during the day since it makes my lashes more noticeable, but, nothing too obvious (this isn't a voluminous mascara).
This stuff is awesome! First of all it does what it says instantly, it gives loads of length but unlike most lengthening mascaras it adds a good amount of volume too! You really only need one coat of this and it's also really good at defining, it looks like I have loads of lashes! So the other part of this product is the "lash growth" treatment. Here's the thing it says to give it a month, it's been a week and already I've noticed a big improvement. First of all only one lash has fallen out since I started (I pulled on it, my fault) and my eyelashes are super soft and definetly longer like it's really noticeable I'm not sure they'll get to 121% longer, that's crazy but there's a big improvement and it's only been a week! I have to say I do miss using waterproof like I usually do but only because I often sleep in my makeup. (yeah, yeah I know it's bad whatever.) and in the morning i have flakes all over my face, which with waterproof dosn't happen. Anyway I get that I bring those flakes on myself for sleeping in my makeup and aside from this I can live without waterproof since this holds curl, lasts 12+ hours and so far hasn't spazzed all over my face at the first sign of water. Some extra info, the wand is a Teddy bear brush very thin but a little too long, and there's always that awkward glob at the end that gets on my eyelid even if I try wiping it off. That and that the packaging is ugly are my only complaints. The bottle's brown with this fugly green metallic, I mean why can't the bottle be pretty too :(
This isn't the worst mascara I have tried but its not one of my favorites.I didn't notice any eyelash growth from using it nor did my lashes look long and thick when I had it on.It was average at best.
This mascara is one of my favorites! It makes my lashes really long and defined. It doesn't thicken them much, but it's good enough to be worn without a thickening mascara. I would surely purchase this again. It's great drugstore mascara!!!
This could very much be my one true love... of mascaras. I, like many people. am on the constant search for great mascaras (but my search might be over). High-end, drugstore everything. Nowadays (college student), i find it hard to justify high-end mascaras, but that is my opinion. Anyways I'll get to the point, I have decent lashes, length and volume wise, so I look for mascaras that enhance both. Although this is labeled as lengthening, it does give my lashes volume as well. It is a little wet at first, but this is the least clumping mascara I have ever tried and no transfer under my eyes even after 12 hours. I have not noticed any growth in my lashes, but I have noticed that my eyelashes fall out less. My only problem is the cap, unlike most mascaras, it is a thinner plastic, so it started spliting and eventually broke off so it doesn't screw on. However, I have to admit this is after more than 3months with the same tube, which I know is a beauty sin or whatever, who cares. So, if you throw out your mascara more often than me you should be fine (and I have a heavy hand which doesn't help). Last thing I have to mention is the price, it's not too bad, $7 something at target, when some of the other popular ones are $5ish, totally worth it especially if your are replacing 2 or 3 with this 1.
I realized that brand new tubes are a little too wet and take about a week to dry down a bit, but for me it is totally worth it and I think it does help my lashes more than I had previously believed. I will continue to re-buy as long as they make it (hopefully forever).
really good drugstore mascara, gives a good amount of volume and length, don't know about it making your lash's grow longer though, the only con's would be that the formula is really wet so it takes longer to dry and im not a big fan of the packaging
This is by far my favorite drug store brand mascara, I bought it on a whim while passing by the makeup aisle and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I would not recommend this to everyone, because we all have different lashes with different needs. If you're looking for a bit of volume with lash extension, this is a safe bet. The only flaw with this product is that it clumps your eyelashes if you use too much. Other than that, a reasonably priced mascara, MUCH better than other drug store experiences I've had.
I am astonished by how much I like this mascara. I bought it because I had to buy something that day. You know. I HAD to! I was in the drugstore, I hadn't had a treat in a while, and I wanted to try something new. So I went for it.
I love the brush. I love the consistency -- it can gloop sometimes, but I touch my lash with a finger and that solves that. I have nice lashes, anyway, but every time I wear this mascara I get comments, especially from children and me of "You look really pretty today." It's because I look all starry-eyed. I almost crashed my car last time I wore this, I was so taken with my own reflection in my rear view mirror.
I recommend it. To try. Mascaras are very subjective, we all want different things, and the ingredients can irritate (for me, it's propylene glycol; READ YOUR LABELS). But I like this one. Will I repurchase? Hmm. I'm fickle. And I do love fiber mascaras. So I dunno.
So I have been on the hunt for several years for a replacement for Max Factor 2000 calorie mascara. I have tried a few: Cover Girl Lash blast (volume, length), define a lash, lorac, dior, another rimmel mascara (glam eyes?), a few loreal, etc. All of these don't live up to the Max Factor mascara. However, the lash accelerator comes pretty close. I am not going to say it's holy grail (I think that term gets thrown around way too much anyways) but it's pretty good. I think it is pretty similar to voluminous carbon black. I did a side-by-side test the other day and one thing about the rimmel product is you can add multiple coats without getting lashes that stick together. my voluminous started to get clumpy after multiple coats. One thing to note is if you do rub your eyes, then mascara will start to rub off and transfer. I notice this with voluminous carbon black as well. However, it gives me nice length and volume after one coat. An additional coat really gives me an additional "wow" factor. Overall, I will repurchase. BTW: can't comment on the growth part claim of this mascara. I will update in a few months.
I loved this mascara! When I wore it, it looked like I had false lashes on. I've always used multiple mascaras, but this did the job of all those lengthening, volumizing, etc. mascaras in one! I will definitely continue to purchase this, although I can't say that it did it's intended purpose of making my lashes grow it's a great overall mascara! The only downside and reason I took off one lippie is that my packaging cracked. I went to screw the wand back in and the green cap literally cracked apart and the mascara could no longer be sealed and therefore became dried out, filled with germs, and useless.
