Worst mascara ever. I bought this because I needed something in a pinch. Added color but no length or volume at all. Very runny. Smudges like mad. I thought nothing could be worse that Great Lash but I was wrong. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.
I don't really think that this is a mascara for older girls or women. for example, i used this mascara when i was in junior high since it was something that i could purchase with my allowance. Overall, it was actually a really good mascara. If i were in a pinch and needed something to use for awhile, this would definitely be my top pick. But like all girls, we always move on and experiment on different products. I'm sure that i will still come back to this one though :>)
My favorite daytime mascara is Clinique naturally glossy with Neutrogena lash tint coming in second but I purchased this because I wear mascara inconsistently and hate to throw away something I spent more that a couple of dollars on every few months. I actually like this, it's not a bad mascara. It is very thin but that doesn't bother me. I don't like a ton of length because I wear glasses and my lashes aren't terribly short to begin with. I did swipe through my lashes with a brush after applying but I always do that anyway since all mascaras tend to make them stick together a bit. It gave me the color I needed without leaving my lashes stiff and I didn't get that lashes-sticking-together-every-time-I-blink feeling I get with a lot of mascaras. No raccoon eyes either. I wound up taking off a lippie because it is so very wet and I hate waiting for it to dry.
What made me buy this wasn't because of the price. It was because of the small packaging. I never manage to finish even half a tube of mascara so this seemed like the thing. I liked wet n wild, and the mascara promised to be smudgeproof and make lashes stronger.
The wand was a NIGHTMARE. It didn't apply well. You have to use another brush, or comb through the lashes thouroughly. Once you let it dry and curl it with non stick curler it looks nice and natural.
But never cry or rub your eyes, this thing smudges like crazy. Its ok if your only wearing it for an hour, but otherwise, its not worth it.
I can usually buy any mascara and get away with it, this is the only one that didn't work for me.
I used this as a coat on top of my CoverGirl Mascara. Does an amazing job of lengthening your lashes. Cheap price!!! Watery but will dry in a minute or two (I haven't had any problems with smudges as mentioned in the reviews here however). If you are looking for volume, this is not the mascara for you.
I don't know how I forgot to put on mascara this morning but I did. Stopped at the first store, a supermarket, and bought the cheapest stuff. This. I'd have been better off with naked lashes. Very wet and sort of smelly and every blink deposited more mascara under my eyes. If the raccoon look were hot for fall I'd be all set! This stuff is already in the trash.
You know what's nasty? THIS IS! Yuck! I should never waste my time or money even though its just two bucks without checking with the MUA!!! But I love, love, love the products and can't resist trying them for myself. I like wet n wild in general, this is just a messy, runny wet mascara that gives you racoon eyes. I did try wiping the excess off as on reviewer said, but alas, this is just not for me. Why doesn't this dry? Save you time and money.
this stuff is CRAP. Smudges VERY easily and does nothing except perhaps to darken. Hard to apply too. The brush kind of reminds me of those toilet scrubs ><
I bought this because it was a cheap protein mascara. I heard that using certain mascaras (like my hg max factor 2000 calorie) can cause lashes to fall out if used constantly. Using a protein enriched formula should help to strengthen lashes over time. The formula and brush are nice, and define my lashes without clumping. The brush is fairly long, but it's thinness makes up for it. Its no miracle volume/length/curl in a tube, but gives me definition and no clumps. The drying time is not bad, and did not smudge when I closed my eyes. I paid less than 2 dollars for it, and would buy it over and over again for natural looking lashes.
For reference, I have black eye lashes that are average length and thickness and I bought this mascara in black.
I believe my lashes are longer b/c from using this mascara occasionally. :]]]
