I'm as skeptical as the next person, but after using this mascara for 1 month, I can honestly say my lashes are ALOT longer! I am 52 years old and have noticed thie past year my once long lashes were very sparse and short. After using this mascara for the past month, my old lashes are back!! The only complaint is that my eyes are a little itchy sometimes. I will be anxious to see what happens if I go back to a regular mascara now, if my lashes stay long!
Okay, first impressions, I hated, hated, HATED this mascara. More than I've ever disliked a mascara before, and when it comes to makeup, I'm most picky about mascara. I intitially threw this in my makeup drawer and didn't give it another thought until one day I accidentally used it without looking at which one I had grabbed (was in a hurry to get out the door lol). Anyway, the tube has dried a little, so the formula was not as wet as when I first tried it, thank gosh. And somehow, by the end of the day, I realised this was my new HG mascara. It makes my lashes soft, lush, and natural, and after about a month or so of everyday use, I've noticed little baby lashes popping up! I could go on and on and on, raving about this mascara, but I'll settle to say: I LOVE THIS MASCARA AND WILL BUY IT FOREVER!
It stays on for the whole day. I find if i coat my eyelashes ever so lightly then on the second coat apply more pressure, my eyelashes look really long. And it lasts the whole night too! It's great as a mascara, and my eyelashes don't fall out when I'm removing this mascara, but haven't noticed any difference in length. But come on, what would lengthen your eyelashes anyway? They're at the length that they are naturally, we can't do anything about it except enhance it with make up really.
honestly... i bought this cause zooey deschanel endorsed it and she let me down. my lashes are already long, but this did NOTHING for them! it takes forever and a day to dry, and the brush is weird and awkward. never ever gonna buy again. i'm going back to the Falsies.
I don't get the great reviews. I guess I'm in the minority here, but this mascara sucked. I had to build and build to get any noticeable color (purchased extreme black), but when applying the second coat my lashes got extremely sticky and turned into the dreaded spider legs. Minimal lengthening, and zero volume (I know it's not supposed to volumize but I like my mascaras to multitask). Also, the bristles are unreasonably hard (not rubber bristles) and kept puncturing my eye. And since the brush is odd shaped, I ended up getting product all over my eyelid. After I went through approximately 10 minutes of trying to make it work, I realized it was a lost cause and washed it off and applied another mascara. I PROMPTLY returned this to Walmart and got my $8 back. Maybe I got a bad tube, but my advice is DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.
I love this mascara! I dont notice the whole making my lashes grow or anything. However, this is a wonderful mascara for everyday. It makes my lashes look longer and it is so glossy black. I love that it doesnt clump. I feel it really defines my lashes and lengthens them.
I do however wear the Shiseido lash base underneath and so I dont notice it not giving enough volume. This combined with the Shiseido lash base is the best combo yet I have tried. This is even beating out my YSL Singular mascara, and for $8, it is a steal compare to $30 I was paying for the YSL
Overall this product alone is not the worst mascara Ive ever tried (I can not tell you how many drugstore mascaras I have tried)...But however when taking into account that your paying 8 dollars for it it hardly seems worth it. I got this mascara for a few reasons. 1 being the reviews it got. 2 reading that it gave a dramatic look (due to giving length) and also that it was a very black black. Overall I would take Lash Blast over this ANY DAY.
The pros of this are.
It gives length. I think the length would have been much more noticable if the black was deeper.
and the black is not the least intense ive come across but nowhere near what I wanted...
My least favorite thing which I wish I would have taken into more consideration while reading the reviews that agreed is that it gives next to no volume...Meaning it does not make your lashes look very full.
It only has 7 ML where as Lash Blast my absolute favorite has 13.1 ML while costing less. But that could be because Lash Accelerator is so new.
The price is about $8 and most drug store mascaras run around $6.
I found it flaked more than some mascaras Ive tried.
Overall this mascara is good for those who dont care if their mascara gives them a fuller look, and or even just wants a naturalish looking mascara. I will not repurchase this but will keep it for days I would like a hardly there look.
I am editing this because I have tried it a few more times and although its still not my favorite mascara I feel it deserves 1 more lippie for the sheer length it gives when you add multiple coats. But I still prefur lash blast.
Great length not so great volume!
I Have not noticed any major difference in lash growth but the are a little thicker!!!
I really love this mascara! It has eliminated the need to curl my lashes because it really makes my lashes stand out! I haven't noticed any GROWTH, however, my lashes feel healthier! They don't fall out nearly as much when I take my eye makeup off which is FABULOUS because that used to happen all the time. Overall a great mascara. I've been using it for only a couple of weeks so I will update in about 2 more weeks :)
EDIT: This HAS helped my lashes grow! I feel like they are longer and stronger as well. This mascara is great!
I love this, it makes my lashes soo long and pretty I fell in love with the maybelline lash stiletto volume && I think this might replace it
