Joining the bandwagon of haterade against this mascara.
I have to wipe this onto a separate mascara wand to apply.
During the day, this somehow smears underneath my eyes, and leaves me with marks on my face. I can't wear this because I have no confidence in it.
This was my first mascara. It is a good first mascara. I think i started wearing it regularly when i was 15. Since I had never worn mascara before, I thought this was awesome because it looked so good compared to my bare lashes. I prefer the curved brush. It is good but I love drama and glamour so I like something more. I probably would not buy it again because there are so many mascaras out there that I need to try still! My second mascara was max factor 2000 calorie and that is still my favorite, although I am not sure if they make it anymore.
Every year this little pink and green tube makes it to the tops of all the beauty editors' lists. And every year I say, "impossible", because I've used it before and it wasn't anything to put in a list of fab products. Tons of us girls have reviewed this product and the general consensus is that this is not a good mascara and over 73% of us would not repurchase. Now if a product is sooo cheap, wouldn't a lot of people say, "well, I'm getting my money's worth so it's ok, I'll buy it"? Yeah, no one's saying that. Do yourselves a favour ladies and stop wasting your time on this one. Maybe this was a winner in 1957, but in 2007? No way. Straight in the bin it went. Didn't even bother finishing the tube. The only reason I gave it 2 lippies instead of 1 is the price: it's a crap product and Maybelline knows it and doesn't embarass itself by asking for more.
This a great mascara for a no frills, no fuss girl. It doesnt clump, it adds color and a bit of length. The reason so many people are responding negatively is probably because this is normally reviewed so well in magazines. It's good for girls just starting to use makeup as well, but if you crave eyes that pop, look elsewhere.
Dang-why all the hate on this mascara? Back in the day this way my HG (long before Tarte). It gets the job done. Ten times better than the cr*p they are releasing at the d/s these days. I'd buy this over define-a-lash or lash blast anyday. That being said, if Tarte was discontined tomorrow, this still probably wouldn't be my next choice. But it isn't the worst thing in the world.
this mascara is the most horrific beauty product i've ever tried! i can't imagine who buys this stuff..
This is the only mascara that I buy again and again. The fact that they make the blackest black mascara was enough to make me want to buy. Took off one lippie because it takes a while to dry (have to wait a few minutes to put my glasses back on, otherwise the mascara gets all over them), but overall, a good product.
I always wondered why this mascara has been around for so long. So i finally bought it.
-i was surprised to see such a tiny brush come out. It looks like my usual Bad Gal Lash would eat it up! however i lOVEEe how it gets every lash and seperates!
-doesn't give a too dramatic effect but it lengthens n darkens!
-wish it held the curllll!!!
thank goodness it came for free (my sis got it at a giveaway at her school ) so i didn't waste any money on it. didn't keep my lashes up, thicken or do anything!!! it was a smudgey mess... even the terrible xxl curl maybelline was better than this !!
I used the waterproof version of this product for a good few years and it was my staple mascara until i branched out. I liked this mascara as i only had to put it on once and it stayed put all day and night, no flaking or running. But it was very plain and i mainly used it for work as it wasnt heavy, but for a night out it didnt do a lot for my lashes.
The problem i had was that you had to let it dry before blinking or it would end up all over the place and also the waterproof formula was really hard to remove and using it everyday made my lashes so dry. So now the main 2 i chop and change with are
Barry M - 3 in 1 Mascara ( which is amazing!)
Maybelline Volume express turbo boost
those seem to be my staples just now, Nothing fancy for me they do the job perfect.
