I hate to be a minority here, but this stuff is c-r-a-p. Why? Well by the end of the day, its flaked all along my cheeks and in my eyes, the price is ridiculous ($25 CAN), and the brush is obnoxiously big. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a teddy bear brush, but the stupid thing kept hitting my eyelids!
The only thing good about this mascara is that it holds a curl. Thats it. I didnt even notice anything spectacular that made my lashes look any different. VERY dissappointed.
I had high hopes for this mascara, but it's let me down. I have very sparse, short lashes and need a very dramatic mascara, and this stuff did little more than tint my lashes black. Held a curl decently, smelled nice, and I really like the big full brush. But otherwise, it just wasn't what I was looking for.
I have to admit, I really liked this mascara. It has a nice big brush with which you could control the drama of your look. I like alot of mascara, so this one worked well with me. It dried out pretty fast, because Benefit did suggest an alternative way of using it so that the brush wasnt constantly bobbing in and out of the tube, drying it out. Me being me, I chose not to hear that. A nice mascara though, well done Benefit!
I like this mascara. I purchased it a couple times and was satisfied both times. It has a good brush that worked well with my thick lashes. I think it's very similar to Dior show, which is good as well.
i found this mascara didn't really lengthen or do anything special for my lashes. i now use rimmel mascara and find it to be a lot better
in the past, i always used lengthening mascaras but i decided to try this a couple of months ago because i was getting tired of people telling me, "your lashes are quite long, it's a pity they're so sparse... would've looked nicer if they're thicker". i like the fat wand which coats almost all my lashes in just one stroke. two to three strokes later, my lashes look thicker and much darker. i usually use 2 strokes of lengthening mascara on the tips of my lashes, followed by 2 strokes of this (after curling my lashes, of course). i use a lash comb to separate the lashes. all this takes a while but the resulting look is worth it. while this mascara thickens nicely, i wish that it's more long-lasting or more water/sebum-resistant because it smudges under my eyes after about 8 to 10 hours. nothing i can't fix with some water and a cotton bud or tissue but still, i'd prefer a stronger formula. i have not tried maybelline xxl or l'oreal volume shocking before so i can't compare. but i've tried bourjois volume glamour and i prefer benefit bad gal lash.
smudges a bit under the eyes by the end of the day.
i got this with the best of benefit kit b/c i've been wanting to try it as well as dallas. it's ok, not sure what all the rage is about, tho. i guess i was expecting more for the $$. honestly, i can get more volume and length from my $6 maybelline intense xxl mascara. $19 seems a bit much to pay for a mascara that doesn't outperform a $6 one. i won't purchase again.
THis is my favorite mascara. It makes my eyes look big and beautiful without all of the clumping and mess that lots of other mascaras case. It wears well and lasta all day! I could not live without it!
Ive given this a 3, its okay but I dont find it to be anything special at all. To get any real benefit from it I need to use a few coats and to be honest I cant always be bothered! Once Ive built it up it looks pretty fab but Ive tried others that are so much better.
