I've been buying this product for 2 years now and tried other mascaras. I have complex allergies, cannot tolerate many products, and wear contact lenses. This is one of the only mascaras I've tried that doesn't irritate my eyes and I've actually noticed my lashes have been longer since using this product. I go back and forth between the volumizing and regular formula and currently have one of each in my cosmetic bag. I use the volumizing on my top lashes and the lengthening on the bottom since it seems to have less clumps. Unfortunately it's not waterproof so it does run, but it's also very easy to remove with my everyday facewash so I continue to re-purchase.
This would not be the first mascara I would grab for when shopping for a new tube. However I received this at Sephora for free as a sample size, and I am really impressed. I love the ward and how I can get all my lashes easily. By itself, the mascara looks great and gives me a natural look that I love. With my other mascaras layered, I love that it separates and coats each lash perfectly allowing me to layer on others to get more volume and that think lash look I love as well. I would definitely purchase a full size of this mascara, it's worth it.
Bare Escentuals is not a brand that I typically reach for when shopping for makeup. I've never really been a huge fan of any of their products. However I've been searching for a new mascara, and got a mini of this in a kit with about 10 different mascaras in it, and surprisingly, I was impressed!
For me, this mascara does an amazing job of separating, lengthening, and gives just the right amount of volume as well. It doesn't clump on me, nor does it flake through out the day. I also find it extremely easy to work with when applying. The formula doesn't seem too dry, or too wet, or too thick.
I'm very surprised and impressed with this mascara. I had to do a double take to make sure I was reading that it was definitely bare escentuals!
I got a mini version of this product from a friend and I love it. It's SUPER black (which I like) and the applicator is awesome. It's a plastic wand thats tapered towards the end, which makes it super easy to get those hard to reach inner lashes. It doesn't bother my eyes like most mascaras do. It doesn't flake/smudge.
I got this with the BE Your Starting Lineup. This is a great lengthening mascara! Although, it does not do much by way of thickening. It will work for me because I usually apply two mascaras (lengthener and thickener). I've yet to find a mascara that truly does both. The formula is on the wet side but dries quickly. Oftentimes wet mascaras transfer a little from the tip of my lashes to my eyelids before they have time to dry. This one does not. I recommend this!
I bought this mascara a week ago and wanted to write a review immediately, but forced myself to wait a week to make sure it continued to perform well. I went to Nordstrom and told the SA I wanted a new everyday mascara and I didn't care what brand. She recommended this because she wears it herself.
I LOVE this mascara. It may be my new HG. The brush is great for getting smaller lashes. It separates and defines my lashes very well. The formula lengthens well without clumping. It does not flake or run at all. It stays on all day. It is mild enough that it doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes.
I will definitely purchase this again and I highly recommend that you try it. You won't be disappointed!
This has been my everyday mascara for the last couple of years. It doesn't irritate my eyes, which is a great bonus, but it's also not an amazing product. It coats the lashes, makes them look longer (not spidery), but . . . meh. I'm sure you could find something better. I'd recommend it for people with sensitive eyes.
I was actually pleasantly surprised with this one. I'm a believer in high end makeup for everything BUT mascara, and this one compares with my favorite drugstore mascara, really. It doesn't clump too much but it separates the lashes nicely and makes them look clean and long. No flakes and not much smudging from what I can tell. I still prefer Maybelline's Full n Soft for everyday looks but this mascara is slightly more dramatic and for that, I'd say it's worth rebuying. I'm glad I got it.
I received this mascara as a birthday gift from Bare Minerals. I usually like drug store mascaras over dept. store and higher end ones. But this one is actually pretty awesome. It separates and defines my lashes and helps lengthen them. The only thing I wish it did was add some volume (that's why I marked it at 4 lippies). But I use ELF's mascara primer for that. The mascara does not clump or flake during the day. And it lasts until I take it off at night. I will definitely purchase this for myself when it runs out.
The main thing I love about this mascara is that I can wear it all day without any smudging or flaking. I defines without clumping. My eyes are on the small side so the narrow precision brush really helps me get all my lashes. Personally, I find the $18.00 price tag a bit much for mascara, so I alternate with Cover Girl Lash Perfection, which defines just as well, but doesn't quite have the longevity.
