Used to love this, and it does thicken, but it does it along with clumps, unless you swipe the wand just right beforehand. Got tired of combing out my lashes. Good for nighttime, I guess, when unnatural lashes are more acceptable.
I use this everyday. I have tried a number of other products. The only stuff that's better is Lancome Immencils, but that is too expensive. This is as close to Lancome as you can get w/o paying the big $$. L'oreal thickens awesomely, and you can layer it from a very thin layer all the way to falsie glam, if you have decent fine motor control and know how to apply make-up. I can wear it with contacts as well as glasses w/o no problem. If you're worried about smearing or water, use the waterproof ("hydrofuge") version. If you want REALLY BLACK lashes, try the "Carbon black". Very reliable overall.
this mascara is okay. it doesn't clump unless i use more than one coating (which isn't needed), it lengthens a good amount, and it makes my lashes really thick and lush! only downside is that it doesn't hold a curl. my eyelashes go limp as soon as i apply this. and it's also a bit heavy, so it weighs my lashes down if i just apply to the tips.
One of the BEST mascara I have ever used! I have short asian eyelashes and this mascara makes my eyelashes full and soft. It doesn't clump and it separates my lashes. Its FABULOUS!! I will definetly buy it again.
My favorite! I've tried everything, and always go back to my cheap L'oreal. Love this stuff.
Its an ok mascara. Nothing horrible about it but nothing special either. Nice volumising effect but can be very clumpy if applied in a hurry(like when your late in the morning). No lenghtning, doesn't really hold curls. I've seen better ones.
EDIT: I just found out that L'Oreal tests on animals!!:( that'll lower my rate to 1 lippie. My original rating was 3 lippies.
This mascara KILLED my curl, even with shiseido mascara base.
Maybe i'll check out the WP verson. Mayybe.
Back to Maybelline Full n Soft!
Gives ammazzinggg volume, great even when used in a hurry, never clumps but there are 2 problems..it doesn't lengthen as much (but then again the mascara is called 'voluminous'--why can't we just have it all?) and the tube dries out quicker than you want it to.
this mascara is unrivalled if you want thick, lucsious lashes. I have used the waterproof version for 10 years then suddenly, without warning ive not been able to find it anywhere (UK)
The non waterproof version is just as great though.
good: some of the most voluminous lashes I've had in a long time! Looks very glamorous.
bad: clumpy, and writing on package wears off.
For me, I only use this when I want to be glamorous and don't care about clumping. For everyday use I use one of the no-clump brushes.
