UPDATE...My lashes are falling out!!! Time to dump this mascara. So much for first impressions. AND the 2nd tube I bought of this peeled and got green sparkles all over all my other make up packaging.? Pleas eignore he glowing review I previously left for this mascara.
I love this mascara. I bought a tube of this to get me by until I got my Dior Show in my Christmas stocking. :-) But after a couple of weeks of using this I crossed the Dior off my wish list. It's not as luxurious as Dior but I really do like it as an every day mascara. It easily holds up for day or evening.
Whoooooa, why the low ratings? I really like this.
Good black colour, good all-round effects - it's a great everyday mascara that's dramatic enough for evening. That means it's good if, like me, you only want to have one mascara on the go at a time. Makes lashes appear a bit longer and a bit thicker, and, in the words of my mum, "your mascara looks really...nice".
After three weeks of use my lashes are in great condition. Normally I notice some fluctuation in lash length and thickness depending on where they're at in the growth cycle. This mascara won't make lashes grow to a ludicrous length, but it does seem to encourage them to stay on top of their game, meaning that they're the longest and thickest they can naturally be, all month long.
I think if people are expecting a Latisse-style wonder growth product they''ll be disappointed, but it's a high-street mascara and you have to be realistic. Think of it as a very nice mascara with some conditioning benefits.
I have been using this mascara for almost a week, including all night on New Years Eve.
I really like the formula of this mascara and the results it gives. I have naturally curly lashes and and it really improves and holds the natural curl without me having to use an eyelash curler. I have pretty short lashes and this really lengthens them nicely and boosts volume pretty well too. I bought this in black and it is definitely not a super dark black, and the other reviewer is absolutely correct when she said that it comes off your lashes and looks blue. I have fair skin and hair, and this is a perfect black for me. If you have darker hair/skin tone or just prefer dark, deep black then choose another shade.
I have recently tried the Falsies (non-waterproof) and the L'oreal Extend tube mascara in the red and white packaging and I like this a lot better than both of those. It is a drier formula than Falsies, but I like that since Falsies would get all over my upper lid, and the brush was annoying and clunky because it was huge AND curved. This one is just huge. It is a really big brush, and normally I hate that, but I am working with this one because I like the formula so much, and the tip is pretty narrow so it is easier to into your inner corners. I do feel like you can't get right in at the roots with a big brush than a little one. This is also much blacker than the L'oreal one.
I have not had any issues with it migrating or flaking. I guess it is a little bit harder to get off than other mascaras but I use the Sonia Kashuk remover which is really good, so that's not a big deal. I am going to use for another week and if its still going well I am going back to get the black-brown.
I will have to update this with the info on whether it makes my lashes grow or not. Even if it doesn't I really like the formula, and the price is comparable to all the other DS mascaras. I am giving it a four, because I do wish the brush was just a bit smaller.
When I first opened this mascara I immediately thought it was too dry. However, two weeks later it's now one of my favorite Revlon mascaras. It reminds me a lot of Benefit's Bad Gal Lash with the large wand. Gives my lashes a lot of volume, I have nothing to complain about.
It's very difficult to say whether to buy it again or not. I love the effects I got by wearing this, my lashes are a lot fuller, darker and longer, which I really really like. I can't tell whether it's staying power as I always wear clarins double fix mascara on top of any normal mascara (it's like a protector on any brands mascara, works everytime!!). But I'd probably say I would not buy it again as I found the brush is way too big for my small asian eyes, it's very hard to control and most morning in a rush I accidentally got it on my upper eyelid......price-wise it's very acceptable.
I really like this product. I like the big brush that it has it does not make my lashes clump together. It makes my lashes look full and thick. I have noticed my lashes have gotten a little longer, not anything dramatic.
First, I can't comment on this mascara's ability to grow lashes because I never gave it a chance. It sucks! This mascara gave me black eyes within hours. I already have dark circles under my eyes and do not need a makeup product to make it worse.
This product is one of the best and inexpensive mascaras on the market! It separates every lash and also gives your lashes a lot of length and volume. I have seen a growth in my lashes, but they aren't dramatically longer. I didn't not except my lashes to look a whole lot longer because this mascara barely contains any lash lengthening formula. I did find a downside to this mascara. After a month of using it, the formula became a bit dry. Many of my friends have this mascara and i consulted them, and it didn't happen to them so, it might be running out. Overall, i love this product, and i will buy it again.
This product worked well--I have short, brittle eyelashes, so I'm quite picky about the formula I use. I don't know that I've seen a great deal of growth, but it locks on to all of my lashes and fans them out rather than clumping together. The black color is also not too much for my fair complexion and blonde hair. The mascara stays on during the day but comes off cleanly with soap and water--I'm really quite pleased with this product.
So I purchased this mascara a couple weeks ago and I am enjoying it. I wasn't really paying attention when I picked it up and got the black with shimmer, not the basic black. Luckily, you can only see the shimmer if you are looking closely. At first I thought it was a little clumpy but it has become significantly less clumpy as the mascara has aged. I love the big brush. I don't know why I love big brushes so much and the fact this one tapers to a point means I'm able to get the inner lashes fairly easily. It's not quite as amazing as the Covergirl Lashblast but it's pretty darn close.
As for lash growth, I have definitely noticed little baby eyelashes growing in, but then again I have never really examined my lashes for any sort of growth before. I definitely think my lashes look fuller now without mascara and with mascara they look natural and have no gaps, which is awesome.
Update: My lashes are no longer but they are absolutely thicker. I noticed today it looked like I was wearing eyeliner even though I wasn't and I realized it was because my lashes were so thick.
