I'm very surprised on all the low ratings. I've found myself trying multiple mascaras recently, I used to be the one-mascara-at-a-time-girl. But that doesn't seem like the case anymore. Every time I go to the drugstore I found myself eying this mascara all the time, so when it was $1.50 off, I jumped at the deal and decided to try it myself. This is amazing, it adds volume and lengthens, nor does it flake. On my lashes it rarely clumps so overall this is a really good mascara. And once again, I'm 100% shocked by the negative reviews.
I have fairly long upper lashes, and my lower lashes unusually long. On my upper lashes, this clumps like crazy! It is by far the worst mascara I've ever tried! However, it looks great on my lower lashes, which are the length of many women's upper lashes. The short brush lets me get at the thin hairs near the corner of my eye, which is something I'm unable to do with a conventional brush. And for some reason, the mascara doesn't gunk up when I apply it there. Instead, it accentuates my lower lashes while letting them look quite natural. So, if you have short lashes, then the small applicator _might_ work for you. However, most people should stay far, far away from this.
This mascara is terrible. I bought it wanting to try the ball applicator and it was a terrible waste of even $8. The mascara was thick and gloppy. After applying to my eye lashes I looked as though I had just coated them in black glue. The applicator did nothing to separate the lashes and I ended up with 4 giant lashes stuck together with black glue. Save your money and don't even bother trying this product.
I absolutely hate this mascara. I have naturally long lashes, and I like making them longer, this however didn't do that. It was horribly clumpy and thick and made my lashes stick together. I will never buy it again.
What a total pile of excrement. It looked super clumpy when I first attempted to use it. So I wiped the end, which is a waste considering this was around $25 AUS, but it still made me look like I had about 6 eyelashes. No matter how I try to apply this, it just looks terrible.I don't expect mascaras to perform miracles, but my goodness my eyelashes look bad with this on.
I know this product has received bad reviews, but I actually kind of like it. Its the small, fist like head that spreads out my lashes and makes them look fake. I wonder if this is one of those mascaras that look better over time. Everytime I wear it, it looks great!!! Its not holy grail, but it sure looks pretty on my lashes
This product is amazing :)!! The formulation really accentuates my lashes. Some people even ask me if I'm wearing falsies and when I say no- I always tell them to buy this. It lasts a really long time without drying up.
The only thing is, it doesn't give much volume. I would say it's more of a lengthening mascara- so if you're lacking in length, get this!
the brush was sort of flimsy and not as firm as i like. i didn't think it did anything major for thickening or lengthening. i'm sticking with my fabulash which works great for me.
My fave mascara so far! Pros: the mascara made my lashes look lush, full and lengthened. This was dark and made my eyes look amazing! Cons: The brush is kinda awkward, but not that bad. It does take a little bit longer than I would like to get my lashes to look like I'm wearing falsies, but that's ok. It also does clump a little because of the shape of the brush (the brush cannot be cleaned off completely because it's round.) Overall great quality, certainly worth the price. I've also heard (but don't quote me, I haven't tried it) that it's better than Givenchy's version.
Edit: I still love this mascara, but I have noticed that it dries up rather quickly.
I don't want to go so far as to say that this is the worst mascara ever but, it is.
It clumps like crazy and I just could not get it to look nice at all. I thought I simply was not used to the brush but after reading so many reviews, I realized that everyone is having the same problems. This mascara really is awful, I think the main problem is the brush. If the brush was designed more similar to the Givenchy brush than it might work better, ie: a shorter wand and a more circular shaped brush rather than oval shaped, and a slightly thicker consistency may also be helpful. I really wanted to like this but, it did nothing for me. Sorry L'oreal!
