This is one of the best mascaras I've ever used. It makes my lashes look so beautiful. Definitely something to buy! :)
hate it no volume what so ever. the lady at sephora told me its the best but i totally disagree argh
Too liquidy but at the same time thick/ gloopy, which means that it deposits too much mascara in one go (even though I wipe the brush when I take it out of the tube) AND takes ages to dry. It doesn't build up well either but instead becomes clumpy. It gives me spider lashes even if I take my time to brush through carefully. Last but not least, it's a pain to take off even with an oil based makeup remover, there always seems to be some left off somewhere that ends up smudging on my face. And the ball-shaped end bit? Useless! You need to wipe most mascara off if you are to use it otherwise it will clump your lashes together like there's no tomorrow.
Got a sample size of this mascara in my "birthday gift" from Sephora. I have mascara "issues" and for that reason, frequently don't bother wearing mascara (as it really is a "bother") but I quite like this. It's a bit more "obvious looking" than I like; I prefer a somewhat more natural look to my lashes. I find with this mascara, I do have to go through with a clean spoolie or lash comb after applying it, to separate some clumps or remove a bit of excess on my outer lashes, but it lasts on me through the day without leaving a grey smear under my eyes by the end of the work day. It's not as good as the Bobbi Brown mascara I've recently discovered (again, thanks to a Sephora freebie), but it's not bad. I'm surprised by the overall low rating and some of the really negative reviews for this mascara. I was expecting to hate this, based on what I read here and I was very pleasantly surprised.
Got it free wish I could give it back! Too gloppy and heavy.
Sorry to say this but... no. Just...NO! This is quite possibly the most over-hyped mascara since greatlash in the 80's! I might not have been so disappointed with it if it had not made so many promises that it could not keep. I don't understand how anyone could love it. The formula is practically liquid-y, the brush has the hardest and sharpest bristles i have ever had the displeasure of experiencing, and the end result had me worrying about people smacking me in the face to kill the spiders! SO. CLUMPY. It did not give me the desired effect that it ; the look of false lashes. I'm just glad I got it for free instead of wasting my money. Oh! and it takes about 8 strokes of the brush before i even look like i have mascara on! Can't believe how much hype there is about this product! Serious let down for how excited i was to try it. Still gonna try it again to make sure i don't just have to get used to the brush. Hope this helped! Sorry Benefit! I love most of your stuff!
Received this as part of my birthday Sephora gift. Gave it two honest efforts--nope. It smudged both times. By the time I came home from work I had grey circles under my eyes. No thank you. Glad this was a freebie and not a purchase.
I heard so much hype about this mascara; that it was the best mascara for lengthening and it would look amazing. My short eyelashes were so excited.. Only to be let down. I tried it and it was amazing the initial times I used it, but the brush was really hard. The bristles cut that area a little bit. I continued using it for a week and then it became kinda duddy. It dried up really quickly and I think that's what happened. Not happy. Don't think I will buy this again.
The thing I care most, talking of makeup, is mascara, so when I have to buy a new one I always look around for reviews.. And this mascara seemed to be perfect! Volume, lenght, curling.. A miracle!
Of course I decided to give him a chance, and I was (totally) disappointed! Well, actually I obtain quite a good effect, like false lashes, but just after something like 5/6 applications and 20 minutes of work! I would never ever buy this product again, there are lots of better mascaras for a smaaaaaller fraction of the price!
This looks a bit like a torture device with the spiky end- and be warned that it can be! Don't press the pointy plastic bristles of the mascara brush too close to your lash line- it hurts! This can make it difficult to get product right to the base of your lashes. The formula is nice once it's dried out a bit. Initially I found it much too wet to work with and experienced a lot of clumping, it looked like I had four lashes and offered no definition. I have received compliments on my lashes while wearing this, someone did actually ask me if my lashes were real. I've been able to achieve similar or better results with other, less expensive formulas however. The thing that annoys me the most is how difficult it can be to remove. It's not waterproof- it will smudge all over, and those smudges will be difficult to wash off. Even when using cleansing balms, oils, or other makeup removers I can never get all of the product off, I wake up with black smudges under my eyes. I would use this again if it came in a little kit or something like that, but I'm not going to go out and buy this. The results are nice but there are too many quirks for the price tag.
