I adored this mascara when I received it in trial form, but when I purchased the mascara itself I was underwhelmed. At $32 CAN for 0.28 oz I found it a bit pricey, and it may have been my fault, but I found the container was difficult to close and it gummed up all around the opening, eventually drying out the mascara itself. My first impression was beautiful think lashes that did not clump or flake. I have noted that it does smear a bit onto my under-eye area and it is not waterproof and will run. I will be trying other brands in the future.

It is a good mascara to add to looks with eyeshadow, as the brush is thin enough. Also the blackness is perfect for this. Gorgeous packaging and it smells so nice but otherwise a below average mascara. It just gives me separated and very black lashes but no volume whatsoever. For this price (34 euros) there are better mascaras out there which do give good volume (Chanel Le Volume for instance).

This is hands down the best mascara I've ever used! It gives great volume/definition and curl that lasts all day. Love the packaging as well!

Thought I'd never find anything good/better than Clinique's high impact mascara. However, this gives extreme length and absolutely zero clumping. Very impressive. Has a slight smell in which I could live without.

This mascara is good for volume and definition, length is average. I have long, curly lashes but I lack volume and this did the trick. It's a little wet but it is clump free when layered (big deal to me). I'm not sure this is HG worthy for me but I didn't run back to Sephora to return it like I usually do.

This Mascara is AMAZING!!! Love the elegant packaging as well. It goes on pretty creamy and does not EVER clump. I like the way it separates my lashes and gives volume. One evening I was freshening up my makeup and decided to put more mascara on and wow! Even better than the first application! Never clumped and my lashes looked even longer and thicker! I even like the scent of it which is that classic Guerlain. Absolutely no problems for my sensitive eyes.

I really love this mascara. The brush is easy to handle and I can get all the itty bitty lashes in the corners. One coat is usually all I need to look great. Lashes look longer, thicker and more numerous since the brush does a great job of separating them so every lash gets coated. So why won't I buy this again? I did buy it a second time and the problem persists - raccoon eyes. Unfortunately, by the end of the workday the product has smudged under my bottom lashes to give me noticeably dark circles under my eyes. I've switched back to my usual Lancome Definicils and voila - no raccoon eyes. Sad, because everything else about this mascara is superb.

I totally agree with the lovely reviewer below me :)! This mascara IS AMAZING and is 100% worth the money! I rated this 5 stars on price; simply because it is A GREAT mascara totally worth the expensive price tag; I love high end makeup but this is one of the few things I'd say that about. This gives you BEAUTIFUL lashes; I absoloutely love false lashes (the Ardell demi lashes and individual flares give you beautiufl eyelashes; but that's a bit time consuming; this mascara gives me the closest look to them I have ever achieved. Full, beauitful, long, volumous lashes that make your eyes look gorgeous. These aren't a soft natural look, but give one pheomenal, false lash effect (but don't look overdone) - this add lengeth like nothing I have ever seen :). And this mascara is also relatively easy to get off (compared to mascara's of it's kind; a massive blessing)! It also does not flake or smudge or sting the eye!

The tube is beautiful, glamourous; I love it.

This is HG material! I adore it!

Wow I haven't wrote a review in ages. But here I am.

Alright, so I've been using this mascara till it's empty before I write this review because 1. the formula might work better when it's a bit more used and 2. I want to give it a very fair shot.

I love the separation on the lashes when I use this (I have Asian straight lashes but they're probably a lot longer than most Asians) and doesn't look like a clumpy wet mess. I like how the formula is buildable and yet still looks natural. I find I like the formula more after a few uses when the formula is a tad more dry. Mascara doesn't flake on me and I wear contacts so that's very important. Easy to remove. Doesn't smell funky. Nor do I smell any scent in my mascara. For $32 Canadian...I would repurchase again but it would be a tie with the YSL Faux Cil for "high end" mascara.

I hope I covered everything. I didn't get any irritations. Not smudging through out the day. (I tend to have oily lids at times). I love layering with this mascara if I really want the extra oomph. I would use this mascara first to separate (really good at doing that and still making them look natural, which is what I do for work) and when I go out in the evening I just layer it with another mascara like...YSL Faux Cils. But remember, using too much mascara of any type will make your lashes clump. This just doesn't have an easy tendency to clump unlike wetter mascara formulas.
