This is the best mascara I have ever used. Better than Chanel Inimitable Intense (very good) and DiorShow (disappointing). The brush may seem tricky at first, and it does clump sometimes, but the clumps almost disappear by themselves. It definitely reaches lashes that no other brushes can, and the volume, length and curl are amazing. Just use a lash comb to get rid of extra clumping if necessary and you're good to go!
Received a sample size of this product from sephora and absolutely loved it! The packaging was sleek and very attractive. It's a non clumping formula and the unique brush design was very effective. Positively love this product!!
I received a sample/mini size of this from Sephora. Possibly one of the point perks... don't remember.
Anyways I was disappointed with this mascara. I felt it was too wet, the brush was awkward to use and mascara left my lashes clumpy. I would not buy this mascara.
The Sephora sample left my lashes super long and clump free. Fantastic! This mascara is definitely not cheap, but I figured the amazing lashes I had from sample was worth the (swallow) high price and so I ordered a tube right away from Sephora and and found the full-size version great ... at first. Unfortunately it didn't take long for the clumping to start and while it still gives me super-long lashes, I need to use a lash brush to remove the clumps of mascara and separate the clumps of lashes. Would I repurchase? Considering the high price ... nope.
Best Mascara ever! Separates, curls, doesn't smudge, no clumps, unusual but very effective brush- i love this mascara and would buy again even though it is so very expensive. Only 4 stars because Givenchy still test on animals.
I got the sample size of this mascara from my very generous sister. After applying it, the end result reminded me of Dior's Maxim Eyes except to a lesser extent. This mascara isn't as pigmented as the Dior. I like the way it fanned my lashes out and volumized them. It started flaking about an hour after the application and the pigment doesn't pack enough punch for me. I will continue to use the sample but I won't purchase it. If I want an expensive mascara, I will probably buy Lancome Hypnose.
Was very excited to try this mascara. I usually don't use high-end mascaras but the reviews on this were promising. Overall I think this is a good mascara. Is it worth 32 dollars? NO. For 32 dollars it better be damn near perfect, and it is not. This is very good at lengthening but it can get clumpy very fast. I almost ALWAYS had to use a lash comb to make it look like I had more than 4 long lashes lol. It does tend to get dry quickly also. I think this is my 4th or 5th week with it and it is substantially drier.
Bought this mascara ro replace my usual clinique one, this was suggested by the sales rep. I asked for a gentle mascara that would add volume to my already very long lashes. I was really pleased with the result and thought it looked loads better than my clinique one. However... At the evenings I noticed that the mascara had clustered into my very fine lines beneath the eyes. Firstly, a mascara shouldn't do that. Secondly, it depresses me even more since I didn't even realize that I had fine lines before. So overall, while I loved what it did for my lashes, I'll be ditching this mascara because of its overall panda effect. A shame, certainly for the price!
Gorgeous mascara! Effective brush, gives your lashes ca. 40% more length. I have quite short lashes and never used mascaras but this one really works and widens my eyes a bit :) Definitely HG and would recommend to everyone :)
I've been curious about this, so when my husband was going on a business trip I asked him to get me some at a duty free since they have a twin pack of them for £34.
I think this mascara is fantastic. The brush isn't a problem or hard to get used to, IMO. The color is a nice black that stays that way. True, you have to be careful how you apply it and have a lash comb ready just in case. When I first tried it, I only did one coat, just to test it out and it looked pretty good...not too dramatic and nice for daytime. But I put on about 3 coats yesterday and it looked like I had falsies on (my lashes are pretty 'meh'...not very long, dark, curly or thick). So this one would be good for day or night, depending on how you apply it. I had curled my lashes prior to the 3 coats and the curl did remain.
The only con was that it did flake off a bit after about 5-6 hours, but it did otherwise stay put and the color stayed the same until I took it off after about 10 hours. And because of how much I'd used, it was a bit of a job to remove all of it. I suggest baby oil, if your regular remover doesn't get it all.
No idea if the other benefits it claims will hold true (I.E-helping my lashes). I don't think I'll be a candidate for that as I don't wear makeup everyday...maybe 3 x's a week at the most. Maybe someone who wears it everyday can comment on that.
