The SA @ NM in the Fashion Show Mall raved about this mascara. She went on and on about how it was way better than Hypnose, never flaking or clumping. It reminds me of Lancome's disc. Extencils mascara. It gives a different look than Hypnose. Just seems to lengthen my lashes, not volumizing at all. When this tube runs out, I'll probably go back to Hypnose.
I agree that the mascara makes my lashes skinny.. I have quite long and straight lashes and so far nothing impresses me with KA's or any brand's. The color is rather unusal though, it says "black red" and that looks very natural on my lashes (asian origin). Normally I love KA's products, but I think so far, this one is just ok for a natural look, however too many choices to go for at certainly cheaper price.
I liked this mascara alot. It has a nice finish, didn't clump and lasted for a long time. I hope his line makes it!
I love this formula but have had several issues with the packaging.
Whoa, talk about over-hyped. The MA at Neiman's made this sound like the be all, end all of mascaras. She said she had a waiting list for it and that it had been out of stock for several months due to high demand. For what? I find this mascara very average. It does lengthen a little, but not much thickening, and it completely wiped out any curl that was made with my Shu curler!! I was SO disappointed. I am probably going to return it since I am already back to using my Maybelline Volume Express waterproof which gives me MEGA glam lashes.
This is by far the best mascara i have ever used. It comes off easily without having to subject yourself to looking like a racoon ! It also curles better if you use an eyelash curler to go with it.
I'm so disappointed in this product, esp. because I loved Kevyn Aucoin's work. I am giving it two rather than one stars because indeed it does really curl my lashes. In fact that stand almost straight up! But it doesn't do ANYTHING else. My lashes don't look lusher or thicker. Instead they look kind of spindly and skinny. And this product does flake which almost never happens to me. Honestly if you have perfect lashes and just want them curled and darkened, you might like this. But overall the product isn't very good esp. for the outrageous price tag.
Reading some raves on the board and loving Kevyn Aucoin, I thought I would try out his mascara. Well I hated this stuff. It made my lashes thin looking and feel very stiff. I sent this back the day I got it. The best thing about this was the pretty red tube and that is all. Horrible mascara. I have pretty good lashes to begin with but with this stuff they looked horrible.
Although I like the fake eye lash look, it's not worth $25 when Kanebo's silk performance does the same but BETTER. KA's mascara brush is too long for my "little" eyelashes and it doesn't get the outer ones with one swipe.
Removing was a breeze with water, but Kanebo's is still a little better since it needs a specific water temperature.
Follow up: KA is crap compared to Kanebo. KA's flaked off when I put conact lens dropm in - awful when you have these little black fleck all over your face at a party.
While I don't think packaging is very important...I have to admit I LOVE this tube of mascara. It's an irridescent (spelling?) red color with a gold band around the neck. It's really pretty. The mascara I have is the "black/red" shade and I think it's gorgeous. I have hazel eyes and it makes them look bright green when I have this color on. It dried out a bit since I've had it but I would definately buy it again. GOD BLESS KEVYN AND THELMA...
