Mediocre mascara. Doesn't hold a curl, gives much more length than volume, and makes my little Asian lashes look somewhat pathetic. This mascara only amplifies the fact that they're straight as a ruler and will not hold a single curl. If you have naturally long, curly lashes, this mascara will do wonders for you. It basically takes your natural lashes and accentuates it by making them even more longer and much more darker. Beware the spider-lash look because it's very easy to achieve that with this mascara. The formula is nice and wet, but the brush pokes my eyelid multiple times when I'm applying it close to my lashline. Very good for my bottom lashes though.
not worth it if you like this concept try covergirl lash exact this one compared to that drys faster and clumps more
Like I've been finding with a lot of mascara it doesn't live up to the hype. It will give you dark lashes but it clumps fairly bad, it looks alright at a distance but up close it looks god awful. It lengthens in a spider leggy kind of way and it irritates my eyes a bit, it might flake a little. If you're someone who just uses one coat of mascara and doesn't try to build it this might be ok. However seeing as most women wants either a false or natural look this really isn't really a good in between of either. I've had more luck with drugstore brands that have plastic applicators than big named brands. I think if you're going to invest in a good high end mascara the wire brush ones are usually better.
I don't get all the negative reviews on this. I have very fine and thin and pretty sparse eyelashes. The only thing they really have going for them is they are fairly long and already have a natural curl to them.. the few that I have. I have tried tons of mascaras and I have now decided that I need to wait until after I have used almost the whole tube before reviewing. It seems so many different kinds of mascaras look great at first but then dry out or just seem to quit working by the time the bottle isn't even half used. Not this one. While I maybe wasn't AS blown away the first time I used this product as a few others, I did think it made my lashes look really nice.... but I have now had this tube for almost six months and have been using this mascara about 3 times a week and it still does the same great job as the first time I used it! There is not a single other mascara out there that I have tried that I can say the same for. Great job of separating, volumizing and defining and a great deep black color. No clumpling! I love this product and think it is an amazing value and will definitely repurchase for the lasting power of the tube alone!!
I received a sample as part of a set, so keep that in mind. It's an okay mascara, but doesn't do anything a Maybelline mascara can't do. I started buying the department store mascara's to get something with staying power, and unfortunately this starts flaking at about 6 hours. It's also kind of scratchy when I put it on (had this problem with Doll Lashes from Lancome as well). It does look nice when I do have it on, and is better than average at separating my lashes, but there are better products out there.
To start off, my lashes are very thin and not wispy long, albeit already curled and not so badly sparse.
I got the sample size from the Sephora Lashstash. I had very low expectations on this one, as high-end brand mascaras tend to perform below expectation. So I was incredibly surprised when I swiped the mascara on my lashes, it did make them look big!
I like the packaging. It looks sleek as I don't fancy odd packaging that takes up space in my vanity and purse. The brush is the plastic bristle kind and I like that it reaches every single smallest stubs at the corner of my eyes.
I always apply mascara by first holding it vertical and "wet" my lashes. Then, I swipe from the top once and "clean" up by swiping from under the lashes. Another coat and I surprisingly got wispy, separated, long, voluminous lashes! I really couldn't believe my eyes! And it was not stiff at all as well.
What I like even more, I went out crazy drinking and dancing the whole night, sweating like crazy. NO panda eyes, which all other waterproof mascaras failed to avoid. And I have very, very OILY lids. The mascara helped with keeping my eyeliner in place as well. I had a stomach cramp when I got home until the next day, so I just curled in bed crying. Still no panda eyes, although it has somewhat flaked off the next day but there were still some left on my lashes.
All in all, this is one amazing mascara and I will surely repurchase, if only I have money to throw around. Too bad I'm still in uni and on a strict budget. I would love love love to have this. Especially in the mini size. I feel it is perfection.
EDIT: I have my friend falls in love with this, too. We were at our guys' place (they're housemates) getting ready to go out and she forgot her mascara and asked for mine (not too hygienic, I know :p). She squealed from the room in amazement. And she also fell for the name. Lashgasm. Awesome. :D
I have tried just about every mascara out there and this is so far my favorite.It is my go to for sure. I like it because I don't have to apply more than 1 coat and it does not smudge off during the day.
The negatives for this mascara are: Stiff lashes and they don't curl
This mascara gives me instant length and volume... its quite impressive how fast I can get a nice set of good looking lashes w/ this. Unfortunately it can't hold a curl and flakes down my cheeks by mid day. *sigh* Overall a decent result but I NEED CURL and NO flakes. Onto the next!
I got this from the Sephora Lashstash set. It clumps up on my lashes and gives them the spider leg look. It gives me length but not volume. The staying power is ok. I have oily eyelids but this doesn't smudge. What I look for in a mascara is that it doesn't smear and it gives me volume. So it passes the first test but fails the second. I don't think I will go buy the full size.
--doesn't give me volume.
I got a trial size of this in the Sephora Last Stash set. At first, I loved the brush because the little rubber bristles on the brush do a good job of separating and coating my sparse lashes. I like the size of the brush because it can get into the tiny corners of my eyes and the formula is nice and wet, so it coats lashes easily.
However, once the formula dried, I had spidery lashes. My lashes were also crusty to the touch, and this flaked all over my eyes throughout the day. Overall, the brush is great but the formula flakes. Would not repurchase.
