I have very sensitive eyes so its hard for me to find mascara that won't irritate my eyes. I've been using this product for several months now and it hasn't irritated my eyes one bit! It separates, defines, and lengthens my lashes which is amazing!
This mascara is alright. It doesn't suck, nor does it rock my mascara world. Yet, it was a pleasant surprise after test driving my first offerings from Sephora's 2009 mascara sampler. I would rate this just above average (3.3). It coats my lashes well, and gives me some additional length but not that much volume. I would try the full-size if I didn't have a million and one mascaras to go through (and it was on sale, making it comparable to drugstore brands). Try a sample, if you can.
I love this stuff. It gives me long clump-free lashes with just one coat. My mom even asked me what mascara I was using, and she has never done that before!
I was really excited about this mascara mostly because I love the white minimalist packaging and I admit that this style of packaging is what got me into buying much of the Korres line of makeup - and I'm not too impressed by anything I've gotten. Maybe I received a dried out tube but it makes my lashes look dry and stiff and deposits little tiny clumps of mascara. It dries very quickly - actually applying in a somewhat dried form. Strangely, it leaves the tips of my lashes looking like....insect antennae!!!!!!!!! Never ever have I seen this before - a little bit that just hangs off the tip. However, I've found that if I've just applied a rich moisturizer to my eye area and also get it on my lashes that the mascara goes on pretty well and looks nice. Again, maybe I did just get an old dried out tube. Otherwise, this mascara is just horrible although it has never flaked and would only smudge if I had rubbed my eyes vigorously. I returned it to Sephora.
I've gotten far better results with the cheapest mascara and this is priced at a steep $18. Oh. And it smells like wet dirt but I didn't really mind since it doesn't last but it has that definite scent while applying.
It's an OK mascara--not as natural as it could be, not as effective, either. It doesn't smudge as quickly as the Fresh mascara, but I find that it doesn't last as long as it could. In short, a bit better than average; I'll keep experimenting with others, and go back to this if I don't find anything better.
This was a good mascara, but not great. I like the brush, which separated my straight Asian lashes nicely. It does a good job in defining my lashes, and I like defined lashes rather than voluminous lashes anyway.
However, I found that it can get flaky.
I had been using Shisheido Perfect Mascara with the Shisheido Mascara base but my eyes would get red and watery and sometimes my eyes would get very irritated where I felt there was a speck in my eye. I am Asian and have flat short lashes. I need alot of help with my lashes. I got this mascara as part of a gift set I bought at Sephora. I have the brown color.
It really lengthens my short lashes. Even w/o the mascara base, it looks great.
It is natural and conditions my lashes, it is good for my lashes. I don't feel as guilty having this stuff on.
Easy to take off at night with coconut oil as makeup remover. Yes, I use virgin organic coconut oil as my makeup remover.
Easy to use.
Does not irritate my super sensitive eyes even around allergy season.
It looks very natural, great for work and family time.
When I pull out the wand, there is not excessive mascara formula on the wand. I don't have to worry about the extra time it takes to remove the extra mascara.
It smudges on me thoughout the day. I little coconut oil helps to remove the smudge.
I have to use several coats to lengthen my lashes.
I still use the Shisheido curler to curl my lashes before I put this product on, my lashes are very flat.
For me, this product clumps a little, not as much as L'oreal Natural Mascara.
Overall: I really like this mascara since it does not irritate my eyes and it is good for my lashes. I love the Shiseido mascara/base also but it irritates by eyes so badly sometimes I have to go to the side and park the car while driving to put eye drops in my eye. I would repurchase but hope Korres will make a new formula that strengthens, conditions, lengthens, and volumizes all in one w/o the clumping and smudging.
I tried this on in Sephora, it was awesome. I have been searching for a great mascara, and this one fits the bill. Glides on easily, does not smudge and makes my lashes look long an thick. Love it.
I'd like to say that I'd "maybe" buy this again. It's fine mascara. It's black but not super black. It lengthens well but doesn't really thicken very much. It isn't clumpy at all. It dries fairly quickly and doesn't smudge at all. It doesn't sting or itch my eyes. It's not super easy to get off but with eye-makeup remover it does come off. It's a bit crunchier/stiffer than I had hoped. I can't say that it's nourishing. It's fine, just fine.
Ok i tend to use big volumising extra long power lash type mascaras (lol) and when i first put this on i was a little let down :-( it looked too NATURAL!! but when i looked closer, fromk the side ect- it looked like i had naturally AMAZING lashes with just a black tint on! so i LOVE IT!! maybe not for a night out!!! but for day use, it is CONDITIONING which i love and people always compliment me on my lashes, so if you want a natural look, buy this!!!!
be aware though i found the smell horrible!!
I heart Korres!!!!
