The first time I used this product it did nothing for me. It couldn't hold a curl and weighed my lashes down. I hated the smell. After 3 months I went back to it and I don't know what happened but now I really like it. I have straight Asian lashes that are medium length. I need all the help I can get! I curl my lashes and then work this stuff into the roots of my lashes like the base and make sure it's good in there and then wiggle it through my lashes. It holds a curl. The good thing about this is that you can put as many coats of it on and it doesn't clump but that also makes it hard to get volume. This is a better drugstore mascara but does not volumize well.
I am really jealous that this worked for other people because I have long eye lashes and I just wanted thickness (like this product advertises) but I did NOT get that.. I got long, skinny, scraggly, ugly lashes that look ed way to far seperated.. This product was not good for me, and normally I like Maybelline mascara!
This was pretty good the first few times I used it - lots of volume and dramatic looking lashes. But, it seems to dry out fast and it flakes - however, I live in a dry climate so this might not be an issue in more humid areas. And, what's up with the scent of Maybelline mascaras lately? This wasn't as bad as Stiletto's smell but still noticeable. I tossed it.
this mascara, i am one of those people who would buy something new when it comes out, and let me tell you i'd buy this for my hole family. it works so well, me i always clean the brush before i get the mascara cause, for me i like a clean brush, and it always causes your eye lashis too become much longer, ANYWAY LEEEEMMME tell you about this, it is SO GOOD, it was volume & makes youre eye lashis longer!
I HATED IT! It was awful it clumped sooo much and dried very quickly and made me eyelashes kinda hurt cuz it was stuck in the clumped position and was pulling on my lashes and it smudged every where I would never recommend this product.
The first time I tried this I thought I had found a wonderful product. My sister and I both used it and had beautiful lashes. We were raving about it so much my dad even remembered and (in his typical kind-hearted fashion) went and bought three tubes when they were on sale (perhaps also a compulsive shopper fashion).
I was going out a few days later and couldn't achieve the same look. It was coming out clumpy and awful. I tried opening one of the new tubes and once again had a great experience, but, as before, a few days later it was really tricky to apply nicely.
I'll use the rest of the bottles, but I've been putting it on with L'Oreal Million Lashes to do something about the clumps.
It is decent as a lengthening mascara, but I'll stick to my L'Oreal Original Voluminous in the future.
I was pleased when using this a few months ago, but was dying to try "Bare Escentual's BUXOM LASH"...so I did, and I'm definitely coming back to my trusted and true Maybelline's FALSIES!
Here's a trick for all those saying it clumps:
For most mascaras, actually, you gotta whipe the wand off with a tissue before use.
Then wiggle wand gently up from the base to tip of lashes.
This gives me long & thick lashes, holds a curl fairly well, and doesn't flake!
Nice to see that a cheaper drugstore brand can give better results than an expensive brand!
I hated this mascara! I felt like I wasted my money! It's clumpy when applied and it doesn't keep your eyelashes curled. I don't recommend this.
Hard to apply. Have to really work at it. Does not build up well. Result is just average. Going back to Lash Blast
It's an okay mascara...Full 'N' Soft is much better. I gave it a poor rating as I found that it didn't create any volume and kind of clumped.
