Definitely THE best mascara of any I've bought in the past 2 decades. Hands down. I agree that it's all in application you can't just blink it on, you have to work it on by gently moving the brush back and forth on your lashes.
This is tooooo clumpy and wet for my lashes. It didn't do much other than make my lashes stick together and clump up. Luckily it was very cheap. But I HATED this. I've never liked Maybelline anything that much so I have no idea why I even tried this.
One of my favorite mascara. Hate to sound cliche but I really do look like I'm wearing falsies when I wear this mascara
it made my lashes clumpy, and look horrible. but that's in my opinion
If you're not in love with this mascara you're not using it right, because it's the absolute best mascara EVER. It was only five dollars and is just the most fabulous mascara ever, I personally think it's even better than any high end mascara you'll ever try. It lengthens and thickens lashes and really does make them look fake. I wore it out to a shop the other day and when I was checking out the cashier said "Wow, you have some seriously long eyelashes!" I just absolutely adore it, one of the best makeup products I've ever purchased hands down. If you apply it right, it hardly ever clumps. If it does, combing your eyelashes will take the clumps right out. I have it in waterproof since I bought it a few days before I went to the beach and when they said waterproof they weren't kidding, it is absolutely indestructible. It takes forever to get it off! Other than that, best mascara I've ever used and one of the best overall makeup products I've ever used.
PROS: It's lengthening and quite thickening. The black is very black. A light coat looks very natural, but it's definitely buildable too. Very minimal clumping for all the volume I get.
CONS: Not really one you can just quickly slap on if you want to build layers (but after using the comb, my lashes look great.) Curved brush is just a little clunky to use. Formula is a little wet, but will set up in about a minute.
ALTERNATES: The waterproof version of this is quite nice. I love Milani's Runway Lashes for good volume and length. For lots of volume and good length, I like Jordana's Volumizing Mascara and Covergirl Remarkable Washable Mascara, which stays on very well for nonwaterproof.
APPLICATION TIPS: Don't use the nonbristle side, like is suggested by Maybelline. Just use the brush as you normally would. I am a recent convert to using Shiseido's popular curler. This definitely looks better after combing. Instead of using the waterproof version of this (which I'm not a big fan of), I use Clarins Double Fix mascara sealer right on top of this. Wonderful.
My lashes are super long!:) (acacia brinley length) and i decided to try this mascara since the name sounded really appealing!:) i bought this from ulta and when i got home a tried it on my lashes looked AMAZING!!! But... i accidentally bought waterproof. Now this is a plus and negative if you sweat/ live in heat/ going swimming/ or you have eyes that tend to tear a lot its perfect. but if you want to get it off it will take AGES.UPON, AGES!! I have showered/ washed my face/ and tried taking it off with my makeup remover that practically removes anything.. nothing happens i got rid of only 50% of the mascara but whatever ill just use this in the summer or in the school year in case i get teary eyes or something.
Honestly, this is one of my HG mascaras.
I have pretty long lashes so lengthening has never been an issue for me, but volume has. Most of the mascaras I have tried have been terrible, too heavy and flaky! This is neither! It has a great pigment and it has NEVER FLAKED! That is a miracle for me. I usually curl my eyelashes and then apply mascara immediately and with other mascaras they are straight in less than an hour, this mascara really holds shape.
It also works amazingly well with Benefit's They're Real Mascara. I use a base of the Maybelline and then go over just the ends with Benefit and I receive compliments on my eyelashes almost daily. On regular days though, about two coats of Maybelline and I'm out the door and my lashes look natural and not cakey all day long.
For me, no flaking, long wearing, and it really delivers on volume and is easily build-able. I have re-purchased many times!
THIS MASCARA IS TERRIBLE
I have short and not so full lashes, and this makes them droop, even if I re-curl them. Very clumpy (I applied one coat and it was a clumpy spidery mess)
Very disappointed. Will NOT be repurchasing.
After trying heaps of mascara, I have to say that this works best for me! It has a very natural look and it doesn't look lumpy. Despite being constantly on the go and in a tropical country, this mascara doesn't smudge! It really works for me and definitely a purchase again item
