I love this mascara! It makes my lashes look very long but fairly natural. Don't expect volume or curl from this- I curl my lashes beforehand.
When I apply, I wiggle the brush gently and it seems to take care of clumps. My lashes don't feel dry at all.
It really didn't smudge on me, so it is Holy Grail material!
Not a bad mascara for wearing to work. I've managed to wear it for the entire day and not have it smudge or flake away. Adds a nice bit of length, but doesn't do much for volume or curl. Comes off nicely too with warm water.
i like this product. because all the other mascaras would make me look like a racoon . i used to buy kiss me , that's 35 CAD , it's very expensive , and the only reason i bought it because it's tube. when this mascara comes out , i bought it and tried it . that's waht i am looking for , iam not a racoon any more . but interms of long , volumn , or curve , well , don't expect too much . it just defines ur lashes little bit , give them a little pop . honestly not the best in show , but i will only use this until something better come out .
Ok, this is the first "Tube" mascara I have purchased and when I first cleaned my face with this stuff on, I honestly freaked out because I though my actual eyelashes were coming off onto the washcloth...LOL
But that is how this mascara is removed. Very clean and does not leave any residue on your eyelashes. I love this mascara and will be repurchasing!
I really love this product.
It take some skill to apply.
The brush that it comes with is horrible and very clumpy.
What I do instead is ( after using the primer ) I use my own brush ( a CLEAN, stiff mascara brush ) to dip into the "step two" stuff and use that to apply instead of the brush that comes with it.
This mascara is great once applied correctly.
It doesn't smudge and when I wash my makeup off, it doesn't become this horrible mess of black drips and water down my face.
As long as you gently pull or wipe the tubes off you wont pull out any eyelashes.
Why do I stray from this mascara? This stuff is the best. Hands down.
Very drying to my lashes. When I used just water to remove the product some of my lashes came out.
I'm pretty sure all those people below me aren't applying the mascara right... or something. I personally love this, no other mascara has given my lashes this much length. The thing is you actually don't let the primer dry before putting on the mascara, you just apply it right after. I like this better than fiberwig too. Applying mascara can require some technique, this mascara can clump a little, but it's just because there is too much mascara on the brush. The only problem I have with this mascara is that taking it off is a little hard because you have to use warm water, but the nice this is that it comes off completely clean, and there's no residue mascara left on my eye.
I'm also asian and of course my eyelashes are pretty tiny! But I highly recommend this if you truly want longer lashes.
I'm on the fence about this mascara. The first tube I bought, I loved, but the second tube seemed to clump an awful lot. I love the fact that it is literally NON-smudgeable. I was wearing this mascara when I saw Marley and Me, and thank goodness that I was!! When I walked out of the theater, my mascara hadn't budged!
Can't say it really does much for length, but the lasting wear is worth giving it a shot if you haven't tried it.
this stuff is awfull i bought it expecting something great and good kinda like a dior show or some thing but then made my lashes look thinner and if you want thickness forget it . not getting any thing like that here i expect alot more from l'oreal i have only not like two things from them this being one of them i would expect a crappy product from covergirl or some thing
I actually like this mascara a lot. I've been using MAC Mascara X, but it did smudge a bit when my eyes water (as they inevitably do in my windy environment). Beauty Tubes gives me length I've never seen with any other mascara, and it doesn't smudge, even on my lower lashes. However, after reading other's reviews, I feel like I must be using a completely different formula! There is no clumping or tarantula lashes on me, nor do I find my lashes stiff. Quite the contrary, actually - my lashes seem smooth and flexible. This does look quite natural on me; it just makes my lashes look longer and darker. I have noticed that if you don't follow the directions EXACTLY (do one eye at a time with the dark coat applied immediately after the white coat), then it will clump badly and look a bit gross. Perhaps some of the previous reviewers didn't read the directions before disposing of the packaging?
EDIT: After using for over a week, I find this product to irritate my rather sensitive eyes when worn on a regular basis. I deducted one lippie for this reason. It is unfortunate, because I do like the look I get when I use it. I will continue to use for special occasions or when it's extra windy, since it doesn't smudge.
