I love this mascara. I think it's great quality product for the price. It has a nice big wand and the mascara itself has quite a thick consistency. You might need to take a bit of the mascara off of the wand before you apply it. It does look pretty dramatic when you put it on so if you're not really into that maybe only put one coat on.
I have fallen prey to the clumping of BadGal. However, I found that if you slowly rotate the wand as you apply the mascara, it's much less likely to clump. Overall it's been my absolute favorite for two years. Give me a mascara that doesn't clump up on anyone and still gives your lashes a solid coat and I might be persuaded to see otherwise.
The brush looked great. Thought I would get fabulous results. Instead I got the worst clumps ever! Would not buy again!
Nice fat brush, big tube of mascara; two coats is all you need to have lashes that stay full and curly for hours. I always curl my lashes before applying mascara, just to help it along. The brush shape, which in my opinion is the most important part of a good mascara, is very similar to the much raved about Diorshow mascara, at $4 less.
The brush is fat and the mascara doesn't run on me or make racoon eyes. It washes off easily, which I like. If I layer it it starts looking like ugly spider legs. I gave it 4 lipsticks because it's hard for me to apply without the brush hitting my eyelids and leaving black marks. The brush is not made for girls with short lashes but practice makes perfect I hope.
A co-worker of mine kept raving about this mascara & saying how she absolutely loves it, and while I was telling her I was on the mission to find a great mascara she kept telling me to try it. Not to mention a lot of the reviews for it were negative.
Well, I gave in.
I have to admit the first time I tried it, I didnt have much luck with it, and feel that the 'big' brush was something to get used to. By the second day I decided to start at the very root of the lash & kind of rock sideways while applying. Honestly, it works wonderfully. It covers all my lashes & it makes them look so full & soft & lovely. I do have fairly long lashes to begin with but this mascara definitely did make them pop out & kept them soft in the process (not like so many mascars that go on 'crunchy')
So, will I purchase this again? yes! It makes them full & longer.
I took away a lippie because it does flake off a bit by the end of the day, but not so much so that you feel like its off your lashes & all over your face. Just the same as any other mascara might or would. (Nothing a little bit of cream wont take away quickly! :)
Good luck, and hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I do!
LOVE IT. LOVE IT. LOVE IT. The only downside is that it doesn't come in waterproof.
I really have to take issue with Maria0525's ignorant comments. Not everyone is going to have great results with this awful product, so don't insult those who don't.
The wand was big, but I'm already pretty good with handling brushes and wands. The product itself was drying, clumpy, and ended up all over my face within three hours' time. Definitely not worth the $18. Don't buy the hype. Let this product's low ratings speak for themselves.
Ended up all over my face.
Was nice and lengthening and dark just after I applied but my lashes seemed to "fall" throughout the day - as in - uncurl.
It can get gunky and smelly and I'm pretty sure it was responsible for making a lot of my eyelashes fall out.
There are many other mascaras out there worth the $18.00 pricetag, but this is not one of them. The result was full, thick, beautiful lashes-which helped it live up to the name. However, at the end of the day the mascara was all over my face. It was a total mess. Do yourself a favor and go to the local drugstore and buy Maybelline Full-N-Soft mascara for 5.99.
