Well I really wanted to like this but alas, it didn't quite work for me. The good - long, thick, dramatic lashes. The bad - smudgy, clumpy and flaky. Mascara is my staple but I can't be bothered to spend too much time combing through (which seems to make it worse) and cleaning up after application. Since I don't want to waste the tube, I've resorted to using my Chanel Inimitable brush (which I saved) for a clean look. Won't repurchase.
I really like this mascara. I have been using covergirl lash blast but did note quite like the brush. Saw an interview with the loreal celebrity rep Eva longoria??sp. Anyway she said this is the one product of loreal that she has to have, so I decided to give it a try. The brush is way better than covergirl's; I can get the inner corner lashes. Also less clumping. I get a good coverage without a ton of work which makes me happy.
I am IN LOVE! I am a huge mascara-junkie and I bought this recently because I love Maybelline's Colossal mascara with collagen in it, but the smell is absolutely horrible. It honestly smelled like vomit and flowers. Yuck! So, since i liked that one with collagen, I figured I'd try this one and i absolutely love it! No yucky smell and the formula isn't as dry. Also, the massive brush gives INSANE volume. I'm really loving this mascara!
**EDIT: i have noticed a lot of flaking with the waterproof formula
i warily tried this for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised! i'm normally not a fan of a big mascara brush since i find that they tend to make a mess on me, but this brush is not the typical wand found on volumizing formulas - it looks more like a lengthening brush due to its semi spaced out bristles as opposed to thick and packed. it gave me great length and held my curl perfectly all day. i personally did not find the volumizing aspect to be the best, but it was not bad at all. i will try to update after using this for a little bit to see if it continues to work the same
I absolutely LOVE this mascara ! After finishing up my MUFE Smoky (which btw, is also great) I felt like I needed a cheaper alternative. Needless to say, I've found it! The formula is gorgeous - it's watery but not too watery. It very workable so you can get the exact amount of definition you want. I will definetly buy again !
Absolutely STUNNING results using one thick coat of this over two coats of Telescopic Clean Definition as a base on curled lashes. My lashes have never, ever looked better. I have permanently traded my YSL Faux Cils for this combination at a third of the price and even better-looking results. Trust me, try the two together and you will not be disappointed!
I tried this mascara on the advice of my mom, who stated that she loved it. Well, she was right, as usual. It keeps my lashes curled, and is extremely easy to take off with a good eye makeup remover.
This mascara really didn't work for me...I've had great experiences with most L'Oreal products but was disappointed in this one. It clumped a lot and flaked too.
On my very first day with this, I kinda loved it. It gave my lashes good volume, length and was buildable. It didn't smudge under the hot sun and I was a very satisfied customer.
I have no idea if I got a faulty mascara but the mascara dried up SO quickly. I close my mascaras tightly so I am pretty sure it's not my own doing. By the fifth time I was using it, the formula was pretty much dried up to the point that it was no longer buildable but super clumpy. Hello scary spidery lashes!? It flaked like crazy- while I was applying and throughout the day. My bf was constantly dusting my cheeks for me as he kept noticing "black stuff" all over.
I am so disappointed with this mascara! ):
This mascara is pure awesomeness!! It gives me long, dark, thick lashes. I never thought I would find a mascara that could replace my beloved Volum' Express but this is it!!
