THIS IS IT. I'm done looking for mascara for ever. I want them long, full and thick and this delivers. I wear it every day, even if I'm just dropping the kids off at school. It looks perfectly great with a bare face. My only complaint is that it smudges a bit at the end of the day, but I just wipe it off with my fingers and go on with my business. It's pricey, but it's FAR superior to any drugstore brand.
Love love love this mascara! This is my holy grail. I am continue to repurchase as I can't find another mascara that does that this one does. It makes my lashes look full, thick, and long. I don't like false lashes and this makes it look like I'm wearing them. Also my lashes don't like to hold a curl and this one keeps my curl all day or night. Also I love the packaging. Its so sleek and feels nice and heavy. I don't mind spending the money on this as it does such a great job on my lashes.
Contrary to all of the negative reviews I see on here, I actually do like this mascara. I received a sample size in my Everything Nice palette and I actually like it. One of the few name brand mascaras that keeps the curl of my lashes in tact (I curl my lashes with a spoon). Other mascaras usually bring my lashes down, waaay down, and remove my curl completely. Only downside to this mascara is the fact that it flakes a bit. Other than that, love!
Update 11/10/14: So I have been using this mascara for a couple of days and I am loving it!!! Finally, a name brand mascara that actually keeps my eyelashes curly. I will buy a full-sized mascara once my mini runs out. :-)
So I am on a mission to find a dramatic mascara. I like full and soft and they're real for every day, but I want something that works well for night, since my ideal look is light shadow, dark liner, and tons of lashes. So I need volume, curl, and length, and I want them to stay.
This, with a little work, gives me three out of four. I have to make sure I apply precisely and slowly. When I do, I do get the length, curl, and volume. It does flake a little, so I am taking off a point for that. But it certainly provides the most dramatic lashes out of any I have tried. I am still looking though. Mascara is my one product I use daily that makes the most impact for me, so I am always looking for the best.
As a note, I have only used the sample size. I am pretty opposed to using full size high end mascaras, since I never use them up in the three month life span. And the name? Well, maybe better than a mediocre one night stand or sex without chemistry.
The person in the marketing department who named this must have the most disappointing sex ever.
A member of the Mecca team recommended this product to me and explained how they thought it was amazing. It is a good mascara HOWEVER it can be quite clumpy so defiantly recommend rolling the brush a few times on the tissue so it isn't clumpy. I do get allot of compliments and I do enjoy the mascara, but there are probably less clumpy ones on the market.
Just for reference, I have blonde eyelashes that are long but are also very straight. My HG mascara is Tarte Lights Camera Lashes. I expect some length and thickness out of a mascara but the most important thing for me is that it curls my lashes and keeps them curled. I understand that liking or disliking a mascara relies basically 100% on personal preference but I really don't understand what anyone could like about this. It's gloopy, thick, weighed down my lashes, and ran down my face the moment I had a BF ...(a bitch fit) and some tears occurred. It's not "Better Than Sex." In fact, the feeling I had during the application of this mascara is comparable to the feeling I have when I think my period is over but it turns out I was wrong and a pair of underwear is ruined.
This mascara goes on thick and gloppy and smudges and flakes horribly. Yuck.
This is probably the best mascara I have ever used in the past 20 years of my make-up wearing life. Big bushy brush, lengthens and volumizes lashes.
