Really love the lengthening effect of this product, a friend who got this complained of it being very clumpy, but I didn't experience it as much as she did. The comb applicator separates the lashes and lengthens them. Its great when I apply falsies too, just blends everything really really well.
Overall this is like my current WOW product and will be making re-purchases for a loong lonng time
i bought this from japan because of the good reviews and ingrid on youtube swears by it. i really loved the brush and how it realy lengthens my stubby asian lashes. i love the colour and texture but im going to take 1 lippie off because it does clump my lashes together if i try to build it up. and its REALLY waterproof, but the built-on length does come off when you go in a pool, so be careful. but it doesnt smudge...oh wait it does on the bottom lashes, gives me racoon eyes :( but its really nice on my top lashes and i LOVE it for the beach! but it does make my lashes clump together after i go in the water. the great thing is, it comes off with my clean and clear makeup remover even though its japanese! :D overall, GREAAAAT mascara and i would def repurchase :)
I love this mascara. I feel it separates and lengthens amazingly and doesn't clump up. In that respect, it may not be the right product for people who want a lot of volume. You can build up volume with multiple coats of the product, but it is very lengthening so be careful when using multiple coats they can end up getting too long and unnatural looking. The best part for me is it doesn't smudge at all. I have used waterproof mascaras from Covergirl, Maybelline, Max Factor, Revlon, etc. and they all smudge by the end of the day. I do tend to have oily skin so maybe not surprising, but this mascara looks the same for 12-14 hours. My curl holds and no smudging!
Why did I give it a 4 instead of a 5? It can be a little hard to remove, and it is a little pricey (around $29.00 USD). I use Sonia Kashuk eye makeup remover. It does work on this mascara and it's inexpensive and easy to get at Target.
My favorite mascara of all time. Does what it's advertised to.. Lengthen and separate. It's not a volumizing mascara so don't buy hoping for fat lashes. I use this with my shiseido mascara base most of time and it looks amazing. I go from stick straight lashes to dark, shiny, long, curly, fanned out lashes. Great super black shiny color. When I don't have time to put on much makeup I don't even use the base and it still looks great. The base basically adds some volume to it. Keeps my lashes curled all day.. even in humid weather! Super waterproof so make sure you have to use waterproof eye makeup remover (I use the two part solution by neutrogena). Soak a pad and hold over your eye for about 30 seconds or so. This helps loosen the mascara for easy wiping off. I also shower before taking my makeup off too so that helps the process. Bought this jewel off eBay for about $12. Def worth it. Can't read the packaging but basically you coat your lashes with the broad side then use the fine comb on the other side to separate. I used to hate comb applicators but this works wonders. Def my HG mascara!
I have straight, Asian lashes and this has turned out to be the best mascara I've ever used, combined with the shu uemera eyelash curler, it's AMAZING! It's dries pretty fast which is why it can quickly hold a curl and there are short hair-like fibers which lengthen your lashes. It's great, most definitely a must-have, holy grail item.
My current HG mascara. It really lengthens my poor short lashes so that they are actually visible! I prefer using it with the lash bone (?), but it works perfectly fine without it in case I am in a hurry. It lasts, and is very waterproof! I have cried my eyes out while having this on, my eyeliner and eye shadow disappeared, but this mascara didn't budge, or come off in flakes at all. It comes off easily with waterproof eye makeup remover. Just soak a cotton pad with the makeup remover, leave it on your eye for about 30 secs, wipe, and it comes off clean. I am in love with this mascara!
Must-have!!! This is a heaven-sent mascara that will go a long-long way. I love that it doesn't smudge AT ALL with lengthening fibers that will give your eyelashes extra oomph. The brush gives the eyelashes really good definition and it does reach those tiny eyelashes.
Packaging is very glamorous. It's just quite hard to remove that's all.
my current favorite lengthening mascara. I have thick but short lashes and this product just lengthens and separates them so well--makes me look doll-like. lashes stay curled and it's waterproof and smudge-proof! I use it everyday. It's a bit hard to remove but I use cleansing oil. Also, one coat for me is enough. definitely HG!
Definitely HG material for me. I have been using this for the past half year or so and it hasn't failed me once! I am extremely picky with my mascaras since I have very sparse, short, asian lashes that are straight. This stuff holds a curl like no other, does not smudge and lengthens my lashes like crazzzzzy! Love it. I use the flat side to apply the product first then I use the curved, comb side to lengthen and define! The only drawback is that it is difficult to remove if you do not use an oil cleanser. It is also hard to find, but if you know someone in Asia, you can always get them to CP it. Highly recommend this product!
- Has fibers
- Brush/comb difficult to use
- Clumps if not use properly
