What's not to hate about this mascara? The wand is too curved and the stem has weird crimps in it. The brush shape and bristles cause the product to apply unevenly, but it doesn't matter because this product doesn't do anything for my lashes at all. Three coats hardly even show up. It's waterproof. That's all the good I can say about it. I will put up with this for a few more days and then throw it out.
I used to love this mascara. I loved the effect and how black it was and the nice curved brush as it worked wonders on my bottom lashes.
but I've recently discovered its the product that flakes and leaves dots all around my face, which when wiped away smudges and ruins your makeup.
Now that I think about it, it does clump your lashes together and its not hard to achieve that spider lash effect. But sometimes when it didn't it looked nice. Its very black which is nice. I guess its supposed to be a fiber mascara hence the clumpiness. It can give you a slight faux lash effect but most of the time only slighty volumizes by clumping and makes my lashes pretty blunt at the end.
The flaking is definitely what ruined it for me. I recently stopped using it and I don't really have problems with flaking anymore so now I know that this was to blame. Good for the bottom lashes but way too much flaking. Also, idk if anyone else had the same problem with this but I noticed that this mascara made my lashes weak and break off, when I was using this my lashes looked shorter and more sparse. My cousin said she had the same problem with this, not healthy for the lashes that's for sure.
I got this in blackest black for $5 and was super excited about trying it since I'd heard so much about it. Yeah, I absolutely hated it. Spider eyes like never before, really difficult to remove (I use baby oil), and the packaging was terrible. The only time I liked using it was over another mascara for thickness. By itself, it's a definite no-go. Don't be fooled by the commercial. Seriously.
This may be my favorite mascara ever! I get great volume and length. Doesn't flake like others I've used, I prefer it to a lot of high end mascaras
Almost as good as the Lash Stilleto. Gives better thickness, but is very clumpy and the formula is too think in the beiginning. After using it a bit it dried out and was perfect until I ran out. Will stick with LS for now instead. Good mascara though, not perfect. I use the blackest black shade.
Overall, I think this is the best and affordable mascara I have used for volume and length added to my eyelashes! I love this product, but the only bad thing I can think about is since it's waterproof, it's very hard to find something which will successfully and easily remove all of it from your lashes. One tube lasts a long time.
this is my first time to write a review here. and first of all i want to say don't buy this, even though it is just like 5 to 6 dollars, it is not worth the money. i have been reading and watching a lot of reviews on mascara. and really not that much talk about if a mascara will smear or not. well i totally bought 3 different kinds of mascara from maybelline and all of them smear like crazy! speaking of this one, at the beginning it was okay maybe last 4 or 5 hours. and right now it won't last for 2 hours! and i only bought it for 1 month or so. i barely use it and right now i can't use it. it is just getting on my nerves i have to worry about it all day long! and when i said it won't last, i mean it will smear on your cheek, lower eyelids, or anywhere else. i look just like panda at the end of the day. so embarrassing!
i did buy the waterproof one and it still smear. do not recommend. don't buy it.
maybe its just the way i put it on, idk, but when i put this mascara on, ill be washing it out for DAYS. even with eye makeup remover, nothing takes it off. so bottom line, ill never use this again.
I liked this mascara alot. I have short eyelashes and my bottom lashes grow inward in some spots. I have used Covergirl lash blast luxe before and it seemed to dry out quicky. So this is why I seeked change. This instantly added length and volume to my lashes, in fact I look like I have lashes now compared to before where you could just see my eyeshadow and liner. I like the brush alot it helped achieve the volume I wanted and I used a curler with this and got even better results.
i hate this, bought this when it was 40% off at my drugstore. i came back home and immediately went ahead and opened it, the brush was broken! but since i wanted to try it, i applied this on, man it flakes and clumps like hell. i don't know what's good about it because it didn't give me the nicest look ever! seeing photos of other girls applying this, it definitely look nice full and thick lashes. maybe this mascara are for people that have long and full lashes.
