so for 21 bucks this mascara is not worth it...there are drug store brands that are so much better! this one is very watery and doesnt do much for my lashes it is dark though so i like that and it does not clump and has an easy to use wand but its just very bland to me and feels kind of cheap for being too faced...if you have naturally pretty curled lashes though it might be awesome for you to give that little extra pow
I'm shocked by the bad reviews. This is a one-coat wonder for me. I got a sample size at Sephora for whatever reason and didn't use it for a long time. Love it!!! My lashes are long but don't show up without mascara. This is lush and doesn't flake at all. I will likely purchase in the future.
Edited to say: It looks great when first applied. It does not flake. It does not hold a curl beyond the first few minutes. I like Million lashes better. Won't purchase a full size.
Mediocre mascara. Doesn't hold a curl, gives much more length than volume, and makes my little Asian lashes look somewhat pathetic. This mascara only amplifies the fact that they're straight as a ruler and will not hold a single curl. If you have naturally long, curly lashes, this mascara will do wonders for you. It basically takes your natural lashes and accentuates it by making them even more longer and much more darker. Beware the spider-lash look because it's very easy to achieve that with this mascara. The formula is nice and wet, but the brush pokes my eyelid multiple times when I'm applying it close to my lashline. Very good for my bottom lashes though.
not worth it if you like this concept try covergirl lash exact this one compared to that drys faster and clumps more
Like I've been finding with a lot of mascara it doesn't live up to the hype. It will give you dark lashes but it clumps fairly bad, it looks alright at a distance but up close it looks god awful. It lengthens in a spider leggy kind of way and it irritates my eyes a bit, it might flake a little. If you're someone who just uses one coat of mascara and doesn't try to build it this might be ok. However seeing as most women wants either a false or natural look this really isn't really a good in between of either. I've had more luck with drugstore brands that have plastic applicators than big named brands. I think if you're going to invest in a good high end mascara the wire brush ones are usually better.
I don't get all the negative reviews on this. I have very fine and thin and pretty sparse eyelashes. The only thing they really have going for them is they are fairly long and already have a natural curl to them.. the few that I have. I have tried tons of mascaras and I have now decided that I need to wait until after I have used almost the whole tube before reviewing. It seems so many different kinds of mascaras look great at first but then dry out or just seem to quit working by the time the bottle isn't even half used. Not this one. While I maybe wasn't AS blown away the first time I used this product as a few others, I did think it made my lashes look really nice.... but I have now had this tube for almost six months and have been using this mascara about 3 times a week and it still does the same great job as the first time I used it! There is not a single other mascara out there that I have tried that I can say the same for. Great job of separating, volumizing and defining and a great deep black color. No clumpling! I love this product and think it is an amazing value and will definitely repurchase for the lasting power of the tube alone!!
I received a sample as part of a set, so keep that in mind. It's an okay mascara, but doesn't do anything a Maybelline mascara can't do. I started buying the department store mascara's to get something with staying power, and unfortunately this starts flaking at about 6 hours. It's also kind of scratchy when I put it on (had this problem with Doll Lashes from Lancome as well). It does look nice when I do have it on, and is better than average at separating my lashes, but there are better products out there.
To start off, my lashes are very thin and not wispy long, albeit already curled and not so badly sparse.
I got the sample size from the Sephora Lashstash. I had very low expectations on this one, as high-end brand mascaras tend to perform below expectation. So I was incredibly surprised when I swiped the mascara on my lashes, it did make them look big!
I like the packaging. It looks sleek as I don't fancy odd packaging that takes up space in my vanity and purse. The brush is the plastic bristle kind and I like that it reaches every single smallest stubs at the corner of my eyes.
I always apply mascara by first holding it vertical and "wet" my lashes. Then, I swipe from the top once and "clean" up by swiping from under the lashes. Another coat and I surprisingly got wispy, separated, long, voluminous lashes! I really couldn't believe my eyes! And it was not stiff at all as well.
What I like even more, I went out crazy drinking and dancing the whole night, sweating like crazy. NO panda eyes, which all other waterproof mascaras failed to avoid. And I have very, very OILY lids. The mascara helped with keeping my eyeliner in place as well. I had a stomach cramp when I got home until the next day, so I just curled in bed crying. Still no panda eyes, although it has somewhat flaked off the next day but there were still some left on my lashes.
All in all, this is one amazing mascara and I will surely repurchase, if only I have money to throw around. Too bad I'm still in uni and on a strict budget. I would love love love to have this. Especially in the mini size. I feel it is perfection.
EDIT: I have my friend falls in love with this, too. We were at our guys' place (they're housemates) getting ready to go out and she forgot her mascara and asked for mine (not too hygienic, I know :p). She squealed from the room in amazement. And she also fell for the name. Lashgasm. Awesome. :D
I have tried just about every mascara out there and this is so far my favorite.It is my go to for sure. I like it because I don't have to apply more than 1 coat and it does not smudge off during the day.
The negatives for this mascara are: Stiff lashes and they don't curl
This mascara gives me instant length and volume... its quite impressive how fast I can get a nice set of good looking lashes w/ this. Unfortunately it can't hold a curl and flakes down my cheeks by mid day. *sigh* Overall a decent result but I NEED CURL and NO flakes. Onto the next!
