At first i got really excited about this mascara because it seemed to be the excact product i needed.It curled my eyelashes, gave them a beautifull deep black colour,seperated them very good and the volume was awesome.But the effect does not last long....a couple of hours after i had it on it was just like having any ordinary, not-so-good mascara.I can say i was so disapointed.....
I bought this in black at a discounted price from the CCO. I wasnt expecting much, but I have to say I love this mascara!
Its very black, holds a curl all day, lengthens and volumises. It would be my HG mascara, but it flakes off a little and smells very strong!
If your eyes arent too sensitive, give it a go! It definitley looks the best out of the hundreds of mascaras I have tried!
I think the mascara is ok. The packaging is good, the price is ok and the formula works pretty well. The only thing I don't like is the fact that it doesn't lift up my lashes like it promised. My lashes go down even if I use a eyelash curler.
Ok, I'm a product junkie and usually never re purchase anything because I just love trying new things. Well, my mom gave me a sample of this stuff, and it's the best mascara I've ever used. I actually went out and paid $23 Canadian for it...for a mascara! Which I would never do, but it's that good. I recieved the lash primer as a free gift, and they work really well together. It doesnt' flake, or clump, or end up under my eyes, even after being outside playing in the snow with my kids!
Another trial-size mascara from my stash :) I don't wonder why this mascara has got so many positive reviews here on MUA. I think it truly is one of the better mascaras out there. Despite the name, it works fantastically as a lengthening mascara. Thickness is quite impressive too, along with beautiful lash separation, and all without a single clump. Two coats is enough for a beautifully natural daytime look. No smudges or flakes either, and it's super-easy to remove. But of course, it being a water-soluble mascara, it weighs down my lashes. But I won't deduct a lippie for that. I'm tempted to purchase this one later in the waterproof version.
I bought this based on the reviews here and the pic of that girl with the fabulous lashes. What a disappointment! it did NOTHING to my lashes bar colouring them, quite possibly one of the least effective mascaras I have ever used.
I got this as a sample at a counter while I was in Nordstrom. After giving this product a try, loving it, and finishing it I really wanted to get another.
It didn't clump,and it lengthened my lashes.
The cons were that it smelled very strongly of perfume and it ended up under my eyes at the end of the day. It's also pricey for what is does.
I would buy this product again but not at the full price.
I got this as a sample in a GWP offer. I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised.
This is a really good everyday mascara. It thickens without clumping. The brush separates my lashes really well.
It claims to be a "lifting" mascara. I don't know about that, but I did notice that it held the curl really well after I curled my lashes.
I almost always have problems with smudging, but with this mascara, I had only a tiny bit of smudging. I'd say it holds up really well, especially since I tend to forget and rub my eyes.
I've had allergic reactions to other mascaras, but this one didn't irritate my eyes.
It's easy to remove, too.
Overall, it's a worry-free mascara and I would highly recommend it.
Edit August 2010 - Still using this mascara, with the EL primer it has been holding up well during the Summer, will continue to re-purchase....Edit March 2010 - This mascara dries out fast, be prepared to replace it every 2 months, I will continue to use because it's still the best I've found despite this fact....I really like this mascara. When I wear this my lashes look so good, I feel I can go without any other eye makeup - no kidding. Prior to his I used Clinique Lash Doubling, but found it way to wet a formula to work with. I purchased in Black for reference, and the sleek gold packaging is very rich looking. It is priced typically for a dept.store mascara - $25. I believe I may have found my HG mascara, we will see first though how it holds up when the warmer weather arrives....
This mascara is a.ma.ZING! I wanted to hate it (because, really, how many mascaras can a girl have?), but I can't hate it. It is just so awesome. It plumps up my lashes, and extends them too. It works by building tubes around your lashes to make them look fuller, as the SA showed me. It stays all day, and it never EVER flakes. I took away one lippie, though, because it does smudge a little. You have to be careful when you put it on, and if you get any moisture near your eyes, or if you rub your eyes. I have Sumptuous in Black, Brown, and Garnet and I love all three! I wear them all the time!
