Smudges... Despite me dusting my undereye with loose powder.. I also dislike the clumsy brush. Doesn't hold a curl, not much volume achieved. In fact, doesn't do much at all apart from giving you raccoon eyes haha. Sad indeed.
The mascara could have been more expensive, which is why I didn't rate it a 1. When I first put it on and wore it, I thought maybe the problem was me. After the third attempt at wearing it, I knew it wasn't. The mascara would start to flake and smudge around my eyes about two hours into wear (at least that's the next chance I would have to look). So I would look tired and messy. It was as flaky as a croissant.
Got this as a free sample. I'm using it, but I mostly use it over another drugstore mascara. I'm not too impressed with it by itself; in terms of, it cost way too much and I can achieve the same look with DS mascera. I would never purchase this.
The brush is also huge, so it's pretty hard to get on the outer/inner corners.
I just don't like this at all. I have had far better mascaras for a third of the price, infact I threw this one away .
Just does nothing for my lashes, infact you can hard.y see it. Very poor.
I didn't like this mascara. The brush is too big and it's really, really flaky! The longer I had it the more it flaked.
This mascara does exactly what it advertises, it makes eyelashes both long and voluminous. The brush is fat and coats every lash evenly. The mascara itself sets quickly on the lashes however, I've noticed that it has a tendency to flake once dry. Also the mascara in the tube dries up quickly, way sooner than the three month mark when it should be tossed. Its expensive, but Ive repurchased this many times over the last few years. I no longer buy it anymore because I've recently found my HG mascara (nyx pin up curl.)
I got this in a sample set they have and I am in love with this mascara. I love the big brush and how soft it goes on but how lovely it looks with just a few coats. I do one eye at a time and I have never had a problem with it drying too fast or clumping. I've never had a problem with getting the mascara on my lids. Whenever I set my makeup with a setting spray after it never runs or gives me "racoon eyes" so I have no idea what people are doing wrong. I do use a smaller brush mascara on my bottom lashes because I am prone to getting mascara dots on my bottom lashes with any mascara (LOL). But overall this is such a lovely product that really makes your lashes look amazing. I don't know why there's so much hate this really is a great mascara!
I was really disappointed with this mascara as I'd heard good things about it and benefit makeup in general.
It was the first product I'd purchased from benefit as personally I think it's quite overpriced for the quality of it. however I still wanted to try this 'magnificent mascara everyone had been raving about.
For me, it was too wet when i applied it, it didn't separate my lashes nicely at all, just made them 'spidery' and after a few hours of it being on my lashes, I'd find smudge marks under my eyes and sometimes flakes there too.I never usually have this problem with mascaras I usually use and I always do my best to prevent mascara smudge (using eye primers and powder to dry any foundation under the eye area).
The only positive I can mention about this is that you only need 1-2 coats. it thickens quite fast but does not lengthen properly without a few coats-which usually leads to the problems I mentioned above.
Would not purchase again.
I originally bought this mascara because I liked the big brush, I stupidly didn't pay heed to the bad reviews here. This is, without doubt, the worst mascara I have ever used! It goes on fine, not amazing or anything, but I spend the rest of the day cleaning smudged mascara from around my eyes. It's ridiculous, no staying power at all - It makes me look like a panda! I ended up chucking it in the bin. So annoyed, such a waste of money. If you're thinking of buying it, don't!
I didn't enjoy this mascara because the brush is way too big and every time I applied it, I would get mascara on my eyelids and below my eyes. It also smudged underneath my eyes by worse than other mascaras have done. The formula was a little too wet for my preference, but it didn't make my lashes clump. It wouldn't have been so bad but the brush was just annoying.
