This product is very thick and contains Beeswax. Which gave me a stye, & i've never had one before. But it was Long lasting i wore it graduation and cried the whole way through, it stayed on til i took it off.
I got a sample size at sephora, and it is HORRIBLE. the formula is very thick and clumpy. It sticks to the brush and is impossible to separate your lashes with. I ended up having to take this mascara off and re-apply my smashbox full exposure.
What a waste of my $... I tried applying this many different ways. it was TOO sticky, clumpy, smudged. The brush is such that you can't really take off most of the excess before applying. I even tried applying with different mascara brushes, same thing. This was a big sticky mess at the end of the day! I went running back to my cheaper waterproof drugstore brand.
I have long eyelashes so I was looking for a high impact mascara that would basically give me volume. I was talked into buying it by the sales lady at the Utrecht Sephora at the time when they'd just released it and it was all the rage in town. I took it home and realised-No volume! It does separate your eyelashes and make them look super long but that is not what I wanted from a mascara and like I said, this one gives very little volume. Meh.
Formula-I tend to have a problem with most mascara formulas(too clumpy, tend to flake, in a week I'm convinced they smell strange-that sort of thing) but not with this one. Goes on like a dream and stays that way till you want to take it off.
Cost: $12-29 at Sephora
So I got this in my birthday gift from Sephora and let me just say that when I run out of the sample size I will be purchasing a tube of it. The brush is perfect and the formula sits on my lashes beautifully. From my use of it, it seems really long lasting and it held up pretty well against the rain despite not saying anything about being waterproof. It legitimately makes me look like I am wearing fake lashes. 9/10 (down that one point because the end of the brush can get pretty goopy if you aren't careful.)
100% buying again (for the first time)
LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I have recieved many compliments while wearing this mascara. $10.00 for a small tube is a bit pricy, but you are paying for a mascara that does not flake and it lasts! :~}
I got this mascara in the mini sample bottles as I just wanted to try it! Its very very black which is a good thing! Im sorta use to the formula which is very wet as i had there previous product of this which i completely loved! Big Fatty Mascara! It came in a pscycadelic tube all made colours (devastated I through it out!) and the lid was similer to there real except purple! I much preferred the older version as the brush was much much much better! Really fat brush with lots and lots of bristles! The brush is very plastic and spikey and the bristles are really spread apart! I like the mascara and formula but please change the brush! It actuly pokes me in the eye sometimes! So yeah awsome colour awesome formula horrible brush!
What a confusing product. If I have time to sit around working with my mascara, it's one of the best I've ever used. But that requires me to wipe the wand off with a tissue (because of the sticky, stringy formula), then carefully dab it onto my lashes, let that almost-but-not-quite dry, and repeat the whole maneuver. It takes too long and it's annoying, but the results are beautiful. My lashes look like I went to the trouble of curling them, which I most certainly did not. If, however, I'm in a rush and I decide it's going to be okay just this once if I don't take my time with application (ie, if I don't wipe off that stupid brush), I wind up with chocolate cake crumbs in my spiky, spidery lashes. I resent that I have to work so hard for it, never mind that wiping the brush off every time I use it means I'll go through it quickly, and it's not cheap. But I'd repurchase, grudgingly, because it's beautiful when I take the time.
This product isn't even that great. It's not even the "best" either. It smudges, clumps and doesn't give me that great of a result I want. I could've just bought a cheaper mascara from the drugstore and it would've given me better results.
Still, there hasn't been a mascara better than Cherry Blooms Brush on Fibre Lash Extensions. It's by far the best and I would recommend Cherry Blooms over anything else. They definitely deliver their promises to you which is up to 300% longer lashes! They're basically eyelash extensions in 2 mascara tubes. Also featured on the red carpet too! So you know they work! Totally worth the money for something that works and used by celebrities!
Aside from nice packaging, the performance that didn't wow initially (I think the hype built unrealistic expectations.) But after a month of using it weekly wondering if I wasted my money, it has became 1 I look forward to using every morning before work.
UPPER LASH: I use more than 3 coats - bottom to top and do lash 'tipping' to lengthen further Dries quick enough finish the entire process within 1 minute. If you want to use the tip of the wand to separate, ensure you wipe off excess first to avoid bloops.
BOTTOM LASH: The wand makes it easy enough to catch the lil lashes while missing the corners a little, and it does transfer ever so slightly after a 10 hour office day. But note that I live in the tropics, so that's not bad at all.
Definitely worth a try if you want to treat yourself to something non high street.
