amazing my go to mascara, cheap and does the job!!!!
I have used this mascara for YEARS. Every now and then I will try something new, but will ALWAYS come back to this... Nothing else is as black or creates as bold lashes. Yes, it does clump a little but definately not enough for my opinion to change. Great price too!
I have this in the old packaging (not the red+black). Very Black #251 is indeed a very dark black. Gives more volume than length. It is great for an everyday look w/ that extra kick of piazza but certinally not nearly on the same level for drama as Maybelline's Volum' Express The Colossal.
As I've stated in my other mascara reviews, I have very long, full, curled lashes. I'm always on the hunt for the blackest mascara that provides the most drama, so when I came across a "buy 2, get 1 free" deal on Maybelline, I snapped this up. At first I wasn't impressed, but upon building it for a bit, my lashes really did look amazing - even darker, fuller, and longer than normal (and my lashes touch my brow bone when my eyes are open without any mascara!). It never flaked on me, and still looked great at the end of a workday. A good staple mascara to own.
I had expectations from this product. I was disappointed in the brush (a big brush that leaves clumps behind and doesn't grab all the lashes). I've tried using this mascara with another brush, it's a little bit better but not great. I will not repurchase.
Okaay. well let me see,
I DISLIKE THIS MASCARA AAAAALLLLLOOOOOT! D:
well, Yes it was very goood volume-izing you're eye lashis,
but, it causes ,A,L,O,T of clumping in your eye lashis,
& there are lots of flackes, i honestly wouldent buy this again
i mean the pacageing was better than the mascara!
This is my go-to mascara. I don't think I am ever going to change it.
I own the Lift-Up version, the one with the curved brush. If you are patient with the application, the lashes are separated, they become voluminous and long and curved.
My lashes are long but they are straight, so this product makes my lashes look like false ones, but in a very good way. They just look AMAZING!
I also like the fact that it doesn't flake as bad as others, including high-end mascaras.
And as the packaging says, the application is very fast!
The only disadvantage is that it dries up pretty fast, but since mascaras shouldn't be used for a long period of time, it's more than acceptable.
This mascara is perfect! It makes my eyelashes big and fat, and I can apply several layers without getting clumpy. I've been swearing by this mascara for almost a decade now.
I have been using this mascara for a few years now. A more expensive alternative for me would be Urban Decay's Fatty Mascara or Dior Show. I have really short lashes and this product really lengthens them! Usually in photos, you could barely see my eyelashes, but with this product, I receive compliments on how long my lashes are! The packaging mentions that you shouldn't allow the mascara to dry in between coats so if followed correctly, its supposed to prevent clumps. I never had a problem with my lashes clumping. I see a huge difference when I use this mascara and its been the only drugstore mascara that really works for me.
I'm surprised by a lot of the negative reviews. I bought this mascara on a whim and ended up really loving it. It makes my lashes look soooooo long and almost like I'm wearing falsies. I don't think I've ever come across a mascara that did that and made them look this good. The color is super black like I like it. I only knocked one lippie off because it's kind if hard to wash off, but not too bad. Other than that, I will definitely buy this again!
