I swore by this brand for years, since I was told it was the best.
Then I tried another brand and never went back.
There are many other brands that are far better.
There's nothing great about this mascara. Period. I don't know where the claim of "one sold every 3.4 seconds" come from. Maybe because it's sold in both China & India, and it's dirt cheap. No offence, I'm Chinese myself & I saw these sold in Beijing, Shanghai, HK, & Taipei. I was so upset after I tried it. Given my hopelessly straight & short Asian lashes, I need something to really do the job, fast. This one is completely useless, it takes forever to build any length or volume. I ditched it immediately and bought Diorshow & Diorshow Unlimited instead. I've gone through a full circle of those new "rubber tip" brush mascaras, and even those work better than this one. This ugly pink tube with green top simply looks outdated. Although, I have to say, if you are the lucky ones with naturally long & curly lashes, like some of my male co-workers do (this world is not fair), this mascara might do the job, cause you wouldn't want too much mascara at all. But for the rest of us unlucky ones, toss this useless POS.
I think the real reason that this product is shown so often is that it's in every make-up artist's bag. Well, of course it is! If you're a make-up artist, you're constantly running through mascara, and you have to be very careful not to use the same tube on too many people - so you're going to find one of the cheapest mascaras you can find.
There's nothing "special" about this mascara, but it gets the job done.
Somehow, every magazine and beauty show states that this mascara is amazing, but I just don't see it. It's nothing special and hard to apply. However, it is very inexpensive and that's really the reason why I would buy it.
I bet there's a really funny story about how this mascara got all its completely undeserved hype.
Ridiculously overrated!! This mascara made my long thin lashes look clumpy and sparse. It dried slowly and was a pain to take off.
This made my lashes look horrible, clumpy and short. It left black marks above my eyes too. I listened to all the hype and finally tried it out, I mean, this is the stuff of miracles (according to magazines...)
I was sorely disappointed.
I agree with the negative comments on this mascara. I wanted to see for myself what the great "secret" of the celebrity makeup artists was all about and was simply disappointed. I have quite short eyelashes, and this mascara neither lengthened nor thickened them. There is no way I would buy it again.
I don't get the hype! I always see magazines raving about it, yet I try it and it doesn't do anything! The only think I notice is that it actually makes my lashes darker. It doesn't do anything amazing, or anything thats gonna leave you saying "wow! I get why everyone loves this!"
this mascara gets such rave reviews. and i don't understand why. it clumps to no end and leaves my lashes looking 'spiky'. the only good thing is it looks all right on my lower lashes.
