It's a love-hate relationship with this mascara. The only thing (and it's a major thing) that I don't like with lash power is that it weighs down my curled lashes, so much that I have to re-curl them which is a pain, even with the lightest coat. That is such a shame, because everything else about this mascara is great. It however, looks lovely on my lower lashes.
If ONLY it didn't weigh down my lashes significantly so, I would have definitely repurchased.
I love how easy tubing mascaras are to remove. After trying my friend's lash power I decided to get one of my own. This one comes in a sleek tube and has a tiny football shaped brush that is very easy to maneuver. You have to brush the wand through several times to coat all of the lashes. Also, it is hard to fix mistakes with this because adding a layer on a dried layer creates horrible flaking and once it dries it really doesn't budge. It adds some length and a little volume but it definitely intended for a natural look. The color is nothing special and when its not applied very carefully it makes the curl in my lashes fall completely strait. It flakes a little but of course does not smudge. I wore it poolside and after getting splashed a little I checked the mirror and there were quite a few flakes of it under my eye. I would most likely not repurchase it because I like experimenting with mascaras and was not too impressed, but it is pretty good.
I bought this mascara after reading reviews on MUA when I decided to buy a couple mascaras and see if anything new was out to tackle my horribly complicated lashes. I was a little skeptical at first with this mascara despite good reviews because I have the most difficult lashes to deal with and I gave up mascara for years because they are so sparse, short, downward sloping, and incredibly straight and most people have atleast length or fullness and I have neither! The brush is superb--much smaller than others, and the mascara really builds length! I usually am more into volume than length, but Lash Power gives me so much length AND it curled my lashes upward without an eye lash curler. The downside: it is HARD TO TAKE OFF!!!.. OMG. It is seriously a love and hate relationship. I've tried wiping it off in the hot shower, and wiping it off with warm water at the sink with a cotton pad. I dont know how people get this stuff off.. and then it leaves a flakey residue the next day in the shape of little specks--I've given up and just rewipe (total of 2 separate times) in the morning with eyemakeup remover which usually does the trick. Clinique just make it waterproof!!I think this mascara does flake a little esp if you tend to rub your eyes or have contacts and blink a lot, but it has not stopped me from grabbing this mascara! oh well... until I find a mascara that does the job of this one and is less than 15 bucks.....this will have to do!
Love this mascara so much - have repurchased. I have very stumpy almost non-existant eyelashes and this mascara coats them beautifully. It doesn't volumise or lenghten just highlights them if that makes sense. It's the only mascara as well that doesn't come off on my glasses.
This mascara is very good. My lashes look very long and separated. I will buy it again.
All you need is warm water and a cotton pad to remove this mascara. Very easy!
I liked this mascara until I tried to take it off. I guess I was pulling too hard on my lashes to get the mascara off and after a few times using it, some eyelashes fell out, which freaked me out. But the way the mascara came off was pretty cool; it was like in lubes.
I have tried many, many mascaras in my time, and while I have liked a few, none of them have wowed me the way this mascara does.
I got a sample of Lash Power mascara at Sephora one day, and didn't really think much of it until I decided to use it the next day. When I put it on, my lashes were so amazingly long, defined, and black-I couldn't believe it. No other mascara has ever made my lashes look so long. They're already long to begin with, but I love having lashes so long that they hit my brow bone. Lash Power mascara has given me these lashes. One of my coworkers even asked me if I was wearing falsies!
The wearing power is superb, but I never have much trouble with mascaras flaking or smudging on me, so I may not be the best judge. The removal process takes a bit of getting used to-after 2-3 months of using this mascara, I still don't always get all of it off at night. Supposedly, warm water should wash everything off, but it can still be difficult to get some of the flakes off my lashes, and then they tend to stick to my face. I've had this trouble with tubing mascaras before, and it isn't so annoying that I would stop using it.
The packaging is nice-slim and metallic. No huge, bulky tubes. The wand is slim too, and makes it easier to get at the base of my lashes without getting mascara all over my eye. If I put on too many coats, it can get clumpy, but nothing too bad. I would absolutely buy this mascara again. I think I actually found an HG mascara. I hope they never stop making it!
I have long been searching for the perfect mascara. It absolutely must not flake, smudge, or clump, and it must remove easily with my usual cleanser. This mascara comes the closest to meeting this criteria that I have found so far. It does not smudge or clump, and it flakes very, very little. But alas! It is difficult to remove, adding another five minutes to my evening skin routine as I use warm water and cotton rounds to slowly remove the mascara. Extra nice lashes are absolutely not worth this hassle to me. Plus, I have trouble with my lashes falling out, and using this mascara seems to exacerbate the problem. The mascara quest continues.

I got this in after work and coudlnt wait to wash my face to try it. I love the skinny brush, and it went on so smooth without clumping, plus I was able to get the smaller lashes.
I was amazed at how long and curly my lashes look! they have a slight curl up anyways and I sinfully never use a curler, but this mascara has made the curl far more prominent than others have.
Im really hoping it lives up to the no smudge promise. everything smudges on me, even waterproof!
if this ends up working, I'm def going to get it in the dark chocolate as well to wear on days I skip liner and full makeup.
Oy, I wanted to like this stuff. I found myself Mascara-less in a Nordstrom one day, and figured heck, I'd been looking around for a new mascara anyways and maybe there was one there that wouldn't irritate my eyes, or smudge/get runny. I wound up at the Clinique counter and a completely lovely, sweet-as-pie SA put this stuff on me and PROMISED that it would never, ever smudge or run, or piss off my sensitive eyes.
And when she put it on it really did look great. A little bit clumpy, but the extra length was dramatic and overall I was happy with what I saw in the mirror. She sent me home with a little sample tube and I was pretty sure I'd be back to buy some the next day.
Until a few hours later when i looked in the mirror and saw the flakes.
Oh my god, the flakes.
It's like this stuff turns into hard plastic and just shatters off of your lashes every time you blink, until there's nothing left on your lashes and a zillion tiny black speckles coating your cheeks. I have NEVER seen any other mascara flake off this badly, seriously.
So I figured maybe she'd just applied it too heavily, and decided to give the sample a try the next day. I DO really like the small brush, and the color is very very black, which I also really like. I used a light-to-moderate amount and crossed my fingers.
Just as atrociously flaky as it was the previous day, if not moreso.
So, in my experience it's true that this stuff will not smudge or run, or irritate sensitive eyes. But what it does do is flake, and it flakes BAD. So...yeah. Thumbs down from me.
