I am so glad Ulta has a good return policy or else I'd be one sad girl. I hated this mascara. I wonder if my tube was defective or something, because the brush I got was disgustingly saturated in product. I mean soaked. I couldn't even scrape the excess product off on the top of the tube because there was just too much. It got all over my hands and face when I tried to use it, so I just put it back in box and returned it. Even the girl working at Ulta said it was disgusting when she took the wand out. I wouldn't waste your time, you might end up with a similar problem I had! Get BadGal lash if you want a good high end mascara.
I got a nice-sized sample of this recently and decided to give it a try. I am not impressed. The brush is designed in such a way (wider at either end than in the middle) that it takes multiple coats to cover my lashes, and I wound up with more mascara on my eyelids than on my lashes. The mascara itself was thick and clumpy and just messy in general. In my opinion, most mascaras are fine, and with a very few exceptions (Dior Show), they're pretty much interchangeable. This one, however, is a user-unfriendly mess that I definitely would not buy. I may not even finish the sample.
I love this mascara! I haven't tried it out a whole lot but it's fabulous. I'm a mascara lover and this is currently in my top 5 favourites ever; my favourite right now is Lashgasm. I will say that I have naturally long eyelashes, not crazy long, but I lack volume. This helps to pump up the volume while adding even more length. I just got a massage at a spa and came back and it is still in place! It didn't smudge or anything; something I can't say for other mascaras. My eyelashes also still feel soft. It removes very easily with some oil based makeup remover. I hope to do an application soon and post it.
Thankfully, I didn't buy this mascara! I got a sample of it.
I was so excited when I got my sample because I had heard good things about this mascara. But when I used it, I was disappointed.
First off, the mascara comes out clumped on the brush, so you have to wipe off the excess. Second, this is a very wet mascara, of which I am not a fan.
Third, it did not add length or volume to my lashes. In fact, it actually made my lashes look skinny! They look more full without this mascara. IDK how that's possible, but I've worn this twice (wanted to give it a fair shot) & both times it did this. Very strange.
Fourth, smudge city! It left smudgies all under my eyes after only a couple of hours. Unacceptable.
It also made my lashes feel stiff, which I could deal with if this would have delivered in the other areas.
I like the pink tube, but I HATE the name. I think it's tacky, & to be quite honest, this is not better than sex. Whoever named it must be having really bad sex if they think this is better!
My standard Maybelline Full 'n Soft is looking better & better with every mascara that I've tried lately!
ETA: from reading other reviews, looks like I'm not the only one who isn't a fan of the name of this mascara! Glad to know I'm not alone on that!
I really like this mascara, however it clumps on the brush when removing from the tube. I only needed one coat for gorgeous lashes.
I was a little hesitant to buy this mascara. But I am soooo glad I did! I prefer a very dramatic look and this mascara delivers. My lashes are fairly long and thick and adding just one or two coats (I do apply this pretty heavily) gives me a very thick, full, and long look. I haven't had any issues with smudging, but I do not use this on my lower lashes. The only reason I did not rate this 5 lippies is because of the amount of product you get. I think, if I'm remembering correctly, it only has .27 oz or product, for comparison Urban Decay's Big Fatty (which I also love) contains .51 oz. So I wish the fill weight was a bit heavier but other than that this mascara is a winner. I will repurchase this in the future.
In case anyone think this is a tubing type mascara like Too Faced Lash Injection, it is not. Usually, no matter what I do, mascara smudges on me unless it's a tubing mascara (Too Faced Lash Injection, Blinc, and L'oreal double extend beauty tubes). This is NOT a tubing mascara, and as such, it smudged on me after a few hours of wear. Very disappointing, because otherwise I would have liked it.
amazing. I tried all the high end brands n drugstores mascara and nothing compares to this. its made my short asian look like it has more length and volume. I love it.
Love Love this product . Does what it says . I don't know how anyone has issues with this product!!! Amazing
THE GOOD: Absolutely beautiful packaging!...the name is, of course, a wee tacky, but I love the heavy light pink tube :D. The wand, although intimidating at first, is actually really good at separating the lashes. The formula is INKY black, one of the blackest i've used, so it leaves my lashes looking super voluminous, thick, and gorgeous!
THE BAD: I do wish the wand was a WEE better at separating everything, although, for a volumizing mascara it does a pretty good job on it's own. If you're not careful though I could definitely see this rearing back upon you and leaving you with three giant stuck together lashes. Also not as lengthening as it could be, this sucker is mainly for volume.
THE UGLY: The price...ouch. There are also some lower end formulas that when combined leave a better result, so definitely something to consider.
UPDATE: still a gorgeous mascara, but this stuff smudges HARDCORE on me, and for 23 bucks, i don't think so :(
