This mascara is the worst! It is so clumpy and brittle I don't know why I decided to give it another try. I have a big mascara collection and I saw this one the other day and thought maybe it's not as bad as I remembered. Wrong!! I found this stuff drying out my lashes and flaking off. There was no curl, lenghtening or fullness to my lashes, either. Never again.
The mascara is awfull! It is SO dry and broke my lashes.
Do not use this for a fresh, natural (too clumpy) or dramatic (not lengthening enough) look. In fact, dont use it at all!
It's a great daytime thing and resists coming off - I have caught little lines of it under my eyes after a big night out but otherwise, pretty reliable. If you want lash drama, go for Bourjois Coup de Theatre, but as long as you have an eyelash curler at the ready, this can sort you out - makes you look pretty in the daytime without overdoing it. Most reliable cheap mascara I've tried yet.
Probably, hands down, the WORST mascara i have ever used. I had to really pile it on ... and its just gross - made my long lashes look short, thin and stubby! Aand almost impossible to remove (with make up remover for waterproof mascara) ... hated it!
My sister says how good this product is and makes a big difference--so I gave it a try and somehow didn't work for me. It smudges all over and didn't do the work as it should. Maybe I should give it another try but I was very disappointed.
I bought one. I fell in love with it. Made several repurchases so far. It could be just me, though because I havent go through a full range of mascaras, but I'm fine with this one. It lengthens, but doesnt really give volume.
EDIT: Smudged like sh*t when i coated it on my lower lashes yesterday after not using it for sometime (i have oily skin though)
Lippies reduced from 4 to 2.
This is a waterproof mascara that won't really thicken your lashes. It does lengthen them after a few coats. The feel of the mascara itself isn't thick and luxurious but rather dry and "bare minimum". If you're looking for a VERY natural look from a waterproof mascara this is for you. I'm pretty natural myself but even this wasn't thick or smooth-feeling enough.
This stuff is VERY waterproof when it's dry, and soap proof too. I had to use vaseline to get it off. It didn't do very much for my lashes, but it does what it's supposed to. Nice for a natural effect if that's what you want. Clump and flake free!
Well, I'm going through my Drugstore Mascara Testing Period, and now have collected quite a bucket full of drugstore brands from which to choose. I have in the past used Blinc for a number of years with good luck, but it frankly doesn't build or lengthen as I'd like, although I never worry about smearing or dreaded raccoon eyes. As I have not fully reviewed each of them, I will only write about my recent experience with Great Lash Waterproof. I got Very Black in their New York packaging with a coupon, so price-wise it was a true bargain.
Upon application, I really liked it. It went on smoothly for me, and built clump-free lashes. However, I found within a couple of hours--it could've been sooner but I didn't check until after about 2 hours--RACCOON EYES. It was NOT waterproof for me at ALL. I was disappointed and, therefore, will not use it again. I had high hopes for it, but it ended up NOT being the bargain wonder-mascara I wanted. I hope to write further reviews on the other drugstore mascaras I have accumulated, but thanks to Rite-Aid's return policy, I will be returning this product.
In all, disappointing.
I really hated this product! I didn't like how I had to continually pump to get a decent coat on my lashes. My lashes didn't look like I had anything on them. And this stuff is truly waterproof. It will not come off with soap and water. I lost so many lashes trying to remove this stuff. I do not recommend this product and will definitely not repurchase! This has got to be the worst mascara I have ever tried.
