It's alot like the volume exact volumizing, but it's cleaner and it does the same thing. My new fav mascara because it's very clean and doesn't flake. My eye lashes look very black and the length is beyond great. People with shorter lashes may want to try a primer with it and let it dry. then apply this awesome product.
Good mascara, lengthning and volume, I like it, I wear everyday!
I bought this because they offer it in brown and I like to wear brown mascara when I don't like a full blown makeup look. I'm relatively fair and I have light blonde hair and my eyelashes are pretty much pale blonde. Pale blonde enough that you can't even see them without mascara.
The brown version is pretty dark. It looks brown on the tube but it pulls a lot darker on the lashes. It's really a brown-black, not a brown. It's spot on colorwise as my out on the town Glam Brown (which is brownish black if you read on the back cover) in Maybelline Colossal. I used to use Lash Blast Fusion in brown and I love that color. It was perfect for an everyday look.
Colorwise aside, I found this to be an okay mascara. I highly prefer Maybelline Colossal, NYX Doll Eyes, or Avon SuperShock to this one. I like C.G. Fusion over this as well. This gets a little clumpy on me after 1 coat. It does give my nice length and a little volume but I just think there are better mascaras out there. continued >>
I purchased this thinking it would give me thicker, fuller lashes, but it doesn't. It plumps up my lashes a little, but it is more of a defining mascara. It's a great everyday mascara, but if you're looking for a dramatic lash, this does not deliver.
My favorite thing about CG mascaras is that they don't smear on me, ever. I rarely have a clumping problem with them, either. It's been the hottest summer on record where I live, and I haven't had any smearing or smudging. This mascara flakes a tiny bit, but not enough to be noticeable. I won't repurchase, but I will use it until I need to replace it.
After all the rave reviews here I was expecting the results to outdo my current fave Maybelline Colossal. However it didn't do that.
Price: same as MC, $7.57 CDN
Pkg: I like the rubber bristles as they are cleaner in application
Length: not much
Volume: fluttery&lush, slightly more than MC
Overall this isn't any better than LashBlast except in length department. It's labelled as a volumizing mascara and that's all it does
great mascara! it'd be perfect if i hadn't accidentally gotten it black brown. it really separates and feathers out my lashes. my lashes are long, dark and naturally curled, so ive been on the hunt for a volumizing mascara. this does an ok job with volume, but the length is just incredible!! it's buildable and an clump free. it has a weird chemical smell too it, but u wont even notice it once you put it on.
I ran out of my YSL one which I loved a lot but pricy, so did a research online and I was happy I found this one! Quality and the look it creates are pretty comparable with the YSL one! But it's like $5 bucks! Of course CG won! Recommend for natural looking! The only downside is it's not a waterproof!
I had such great hopes for this. Put it on yesterday and it flaked a tiny bit. Yesterday evening, I teared up during a TV show, and it smeared away when I wiped my eyes. This morning, it smudged.
It is a great look, but for those of us with oily eyes (I use waterproof concealer), it's a fail. Oh well, back to my Clnique Lash Power. My lashes may not have the impact, but they will not drip or run!
LOVE this mascara!!!! I had been using LashBlast, and really liked that, but had noticed a bit of flaking and smudging later in the day. Tried a few other mascaras (Prestige, other CG, Maybelline...) and liked nothing. Saw this one and swooped it up for $4.99 at Ulta. OMG I am soo happy I got it! Little to no clumps when using this- I don't need a mascara comb. I can layer it on to make really dramatic looking lashes, without looking clumpy or ridiculous! Holds a curl fairly well. NO clumping, no smudging, no flaking, no irritation to contacts! I will definitely be purchasing this again!
I really like this mascara. It makes my lashes look dark and full, but also very natural. I've had no issues with clumping and don't need to use a lash comb with this. (At least not now, while it's still fairly new.) The rush makes it easy to get the lashes in the corners, too.
I've worn it when it's been over 100 degrees outside and it's held up very well without smudging or flaking. (Note: I did use Lancome Cils Booster XL lash primer under it) I would definitely repurchase and recommend this.
