This is a pretty decent product, especially IF you have long/thick lashes to begin with. I don't. However, It goes on nice, does lengthen, but not to extreme lengths, and thickens a little without clumping. I like that it conditions, and is really the reason I tried it. The price is decent too at $18. I wore it all day, no smudges and it's hot and humid right now. So it forsure passed that test. I do like the comb-like brush as well. If it would lengthen a little more, fatten a little more, it would be a total winner!!
I was wearing Jane Iredale's newest mascara in the gold tube and for a whopping $32.oo (silly me), it was not so great. It looked beautiful when first applied, but smudged a lot throughout the day. The two mascaras that don't smudge on me (BB no smudge and Shu Mascara Basic) are tough to remove. So when I saw this I thought I had to give it a try, especially for the more reasonable price of $18.00. I have pretty full lashes so what I need is length, definition and mostly, no racoon eyes from smudging! So far, this really fits the bill-no smudging today in 100 degree heat and it came off easily with my La Roche Posay gentle eye makeup remover. A must try if you want nice length, definition and staying power and aren't looking for big volume and also want a mascara that can remove easily. I'm super picky about mascaras and this is definitely one of the best.
I hate ruining the good reviews but for me it was just an ok mascara. It does not give my lashes that oomph like other mascaras that i have tried. The mascara does a good job separating the lashes & maybe adding a little more length and is not clumpy. But thats it. If u are blessed with great lashes this would be enough i guess. But my lashes which are not that thick or long needs something better performing for adding the fake volume & length and there are better ones out there which has helped me for this in the past.
What a great mascara! The brush really lengthens and separates. I have very oily skin and most mascaras smudge off... this even lasted me through a 24 hour shift at work, it's that good. It makes my lashes look very defined and dark but still natural. also does not bother my sensitive eyes. I was pretty skeptical about mineral mascara but I'm a believer.
ooooh my. I love this mascara! I have been searching high and low for a mascara that will not clump and will keep my lashes curled, I think I've found it! I got this as a sample when I was buying some mineral foundation from bareminerals at macys and I am so glad I did. I have pretty long lashes already but I have a problem of keeping them curled because they're pretty straight, I don't even have to curl my lashes when I use this! When I wear this I look like I'm wearing false lashes, I love it :) I will definitely buy when my sample runs out!
Excellent mascara! It is now available at Ulta for $18.
Got a sample tube of this from Ulta and I love this mascara. It has even replaced my beloved Shu Basic. The brush is ingenious as it grabs every lash, adding some thickness and a lot of length. It gives a very natural but polished look. I find when I use it alone it flakes readily but over Shiseido primer (My holy grail) it lasts all day w/o a flake or smear. AND does not irritate my super sensitive eyes which Shu Basic was starting to do even though I tried to deny it. I will be buying a full-size tube.
Update: This causes serious lash fallout when I try to remove it and it is very tenacious. Had to throw in my discard box. Moving on.
Another update: Repurchased after tossing (memory problems from old age, don't snicker you'll get there) and it is so wet it gets all over my lid. Also curl is lost quickly with this now. Was not a problem before.
I hate to rain on the parade of good comments below but there are better mascaras out there. I also got this in a kit (Sea Yourself) from QVC. This isn't a horrible mascara but for me, this fell short in a few areas. I like that dark black color but it only seems to add a little length....not much, just a little...to my lashes and does not add any volume...I need a mascara that can do both. Also, after about 3 hours of running errands, I noticed a little smudging from it wearing off, so this is not long wearing either. Overall, it isn't the worst mascara I've tried but it isn't the best, either. I have better luck with L'Oreal Voluminous or Lancome L'Extreme. I will not repurchase.
I got this with my BE purchase at Ulta. I actually bought something from BE just to try this mascara sample..which is a good size! I work at Ulta, but I applied this on a few customers I helped that were purchasing BE and this made their lashes sooo long, dark, and full! I so had to get this! I have to say I love it! I am surprised as well that this is from BE, because I usually don't care for their mascaras, but i also like the Buxom lash mascara. This one has plastic bristles and they are so good for volumizing and lengthening! I love my lashes bold and thick so I apply one coat, do my brows and blush or whatever and apply a 2nd coat. This is easy to remove. Only dud is it's sorta flaky! It's not waterpoof, but it is long wearing.
Okay. So your thinking.. a mineral mascara with the usually looking teeth of those other brand name mascaras that promise length and definition. How great could this mascara be and what could possibly be the staying power since they promise no smudging or flaking. Well lemme tell you this. I work in a hot and greasy kitchen and this mascara did not budge. I was shocked at the staying power this really had. Usually i get that little mascara shadow ring underneath my eyes by the middle of my shift at work but this did not do it at all. I was skeptical of it since it did come in that kit that QVC was selling. But man this mascara is wonderful. It has 328 teeth that actually separate and lengthen each lash perfectly. It isnt called flawless definition for no reason. But i must say the curling power of this mascara is a little less than what I would like but overall i am very impressed. And its easy to come off as well. Just a little warm water and thats all you'll need. I wouldnt be writing this review if i truly wasnt in love with this mascara. The release of this mascara isnt for awhile yet I believe but if you can get your hands on this product, please do so. I'm sure you'll be very pleased with it.
