I bought this online after hearing a few good things about it... it did make my lashes look more full at first but after a couple of hours, it flaked off leaving me with racoon eyes :(. I used it for about one month... definitely not worth your money!
I bought this product as I generally wanted to try a new mascara as I had bought my old mascara every time I needed a new one. I loved the colour of the packaging and decided that I needed volume so thought i'd try it.
The overall results of the mascara are good as my eyelashes look really thick and bigger. I haven't had too many problems with the product clumping like some people have reported.
The product is good on the whole but didn't get a 5 because I find that I get smudges under my eyes after a few hours. However, I don't know if it is this or my eyeliner as it used to happen with my old mascara but has got worse recently? I am not too sure!
Anyway, I would recommend this mascara to people that have short or thin eyelashes and want a glam look!
At first, I wasn't in love with the mascara because it didn't give me volume. But after maybe a week of use, the formula changed--it turned more thick in consistency and I only needed to use 1 or 2 coats. The big brush is amazing. It separates my lashes and provides thickness, which I was hoping for. Definitely will purchase this again. And it is much better than the Covergirl lashblast. I use that sucker for my eyebrows now.
I really do love this mascara, but then again I really don't have much to choose from that isn't going to break the bank. I'm allergic to all parabens, and finding mascara without paraben has been quite the challenge. To my surprise this has been the best one yet. The only other one of tried as of recent is Sally Hansens/Carmindys Natural Beauty mascara, which was horrible. Other than the fact that I'm not allergic to it, I'm half asian so my eyelashes are a tad on the short/straight side. This gives them both volume and length. It does clump a bit, but that can always be taken care of with a brush. It has excellent staying power, it rarely flakes, unless I've been crying or something like that. The smell is a little overpowering at first, but now I don't even notice it. It goes on easy, comes off easy and I'm not allergic to it! I've bought it about 3-4 times now, and I still love it.
What did I love about this mascara? The bright bold yellow packaging, that's about it. This did nothing for my lashes and the smell of collagen gave me whiplash lol! I have a sensitive sense of smell so every time I opened this mascara I catch a whiff of it, and I end up sniffing it like crazy trying to figure out what it smells like lol. My own fault I guess :P
As for the performance of this mascara on my lashes, it made them un-curl, pin straight and clumpy! My lashes didn't get any type of volume that I was expecting from the name, just clump clump clump! After my horrible experience with this mascara, I vowed to myself to stay far away from collagen type mascaras. It's lucky it gets one lippie cuz the wand was maneuverable, but if I can give it 0 lippie that would be my actual rating for it :P Another miss for me with Maybelline.
I like this mascara because it makes my lashes really dark. It gives them lots of volume too. I do feel like I need to comb my lashes or else they can tend to look a little "dry" and clumpy. But for the most part I do like this product a lot.
I bought this product based on past ratings (it used to be a higher rating). Advantages: dark, vibrant black for my lashes (makes them standout with one coat), thick, goes on easy, washes off easy. Disadvantages: smudges under my eyes after approx 5 hours on. Only one disadvantage, but its a big one as I don't like looking like I have a black eye (on both my eyes). I can't help but use it when I really want my lashes to POP out. Might try the waterproof version of this to see if it doesn't smudge. Am kind of undecided if I'd buy it again, I put yes because I really like the color it gives my lashes in one coat, however, I hate the smudging. So I usually wear it when I know I've got 5 or less hours out of the house.
I didnt hate or love this tuff, as others have mentioned it clumps! But i discovered a way to make no mascara clump ever again! it's simple just get your lashes wet before applying, i just put my finger under the tap and brush it onto my lashes! Works like magic, trust me! back to the mascara, it;s not great but if i had no other choice i would use it.
This is my latest investment in the world of mascaras, and I like it! The only time it's given me raccoon eyes is when I have slept in it.. like last night.. fair enough. I like how it gives me that 'messy' lash look, and it does lengthen quite a bit! For the record I am half-Asian, so my lashes kinda stick straight out, and are not that long. The only other Maybelline I have tried is Full n Soft, which is my everyday-HG. This gives me a little more length and volume than Full n Soft, but the application is more messy. A lot of hate for this product is that it smudges. I think this can be attributed to the fact that it takes longer to dry, so try not to blink too much right after application. I'll try Volume Express next though to see how it compares.
Ugh. Terrible. Don't let the bright colors catch your eye; this mascara is the worst. Everytime I put it on my med. length (and thin) lashes it smudges my eyeshadow and gives me raccoon eyes. Blech. It's even worse if you curl your lashes beforehand, it cannot hold a curl and always ends up in your eyes! I would definately not buy this again, such a waste of money.
