First I would like to say that I love the results I get from this mascara. I've used it in Blackest Black and I get a dramatic look from it, it lengthens, and gives some volume. The wand hasn't convinced me entirely. I usually hate this plastic wands but this one is not flimsy like other ones, possibly because it's so chunky/fat. The size of the wand is what I had trouble with, even when I was being careful it was hard to not smudge mascara on my lids with the tips of my lashes as they were being pulled by the wand. Aside from the smudging i would get with the application this mascara smudge on me and I don't know if it's because I have used it all summer long and the heat didn't help its performance or what but I probably won't be being this again. If you don't mind cleaning a little smudge here and there and want dark lashes with length and volume then this is the mascara for you but if you're like me and don't feel like bothering with your lashes during the day then skip it.
This is the perfect dupe for DiorShow, except cheaper! What's better than that?? After an entire tube used up, I won't use anything else. This lengthens, defines, curls, and never clumps or dries out. My mascara search is finally over. :)
I have this in both blue and black.
I love it! one swipe for the day two+ for night.
Really dark (even the blue) and adds fantastic length.
I got this mascara last week and I am in love with it. It really lengthens and gives u that bold look. I used benefits badgal lash just wanted a change and buxom fitted perfectly.. I liked the shape of the brush, its easy to apply and spreads evenly.. this is my first purchase of BareEscentuals and I want to start researching more about them..
Ok, so I have tried this mascara twice. I am a mascara person, I have tried everything from Diorshow to Great Lash, and I am completely meh on this one. I did not find it did anything impressive for my lashes. Even with multiple coats and my Shu curler, it was just mediocre at first, and the curl did not hold at all. The wand is nice, but just not enough of a benefit to sell this product to me again. I have bought this twice, because the sales girl at Sephora was just raving about it, and the first time I thought maybe I just got a bad tube or something, because I really couldn't see what the hype was about. After the second time, I will not spend the money on this again.
I did like this mascara a lot, the price is the only thing holding me back from purchasing again. I didn't encounter any problems with clumping or flaking, but this mascara didn't hold a curl very well. I thought it separated well though, but not as much volume as I would like. The wand is the absolute best part of it, it really helps to coat each lash.
i have tried sooo many mascaras, none satisfying more than this one. literally with one swipe i could see that my lashes were lengthened and thickened. the curved brush plumps your lashes. the bristles - to me - are soft and do a really good job targeting and lengthening my lashes. it lasts all day and really does give me a dramatic difference in eye looks. i loveee it - i have found my hg. i feel like it's absolutely worth the price. highly recommend!
UPDATE: okay, this had to go back to sephora...after 2 weeks of use i ended up getting small little bumbs on my upper lashline....like eye herpes or something. it also made my eyelashes start falling out, and i know its the mascara that did this because nothing else other than the mascara changed in my makeup routine. on the hunt for another mascara AGAIN......
It's quite nice. But that's just it, I can't be paying nearly 20.00 USD for a merely "nice" mascara. I did get a great compliment a few weeks back from a co-worker, who said that my lashes looked false! (I have very long, reasonably thick eyelashes, but they are not dark by any means.) The problem with that? I had used about three coats of mascara that morning to get the dramatic impact I wanted. Personally, I am a minimalist, but I love going a bit retro with my daily eye makeup, which means fluttering lashes and a swipe of eyeliner on the upper lid. Buxom Lash delivers if you're willing to work with it a little bit more than what I feel should be necessary. I applaud Buxom Lash's gentle ingredients and the fact that B.E. does not test on animals, but I am not going to repurchase this product.
I like this mascara, I love the wand. I do get marks under my eyes from it if it's hot & muggy :( but for day to day wear, no flakes, nice dark lashes and no major clumps all with a comfy brush = good to me.
my all-time favorite mascara!!!! the want is amazing and the formula is just perfect. it defines and volumizes my lashes so well and the bristles are nice and compacts so i never get any mascara on my lids. it also does a great job separating my lashes!! highly recommend!!!
