In my opinion mascara is very YMMV, so in my experience this mascara was one of the worst I have ever tried. Now I don't know if I got a "bad" one or what, but I applied the primer/base with no problem, but when I got to applying the other said... OMG what a mess, it was so dry and clumpy that there were HUGE chunks of dried mascara falling all over my face. I couldn't even apply it because it was so dried up, I'm shocked I didn't get an eye infection with this mess. Anyways, I definitely won't be buying this mascara again, I wouldn't even take it if they gave it to me for free! =)
I don't understand the 'tube' part of this mascara. I used it today for the first time and honestly, I don't get it. My lashes look no different than any other mascara product. I love L'Oreal Voluminous, so I'll go back to that, but the hype on this stuff I just don't get. It's plain ole mascara that didn't even lengthen my lashes. And they feel dryer than they usually do. Oh well.
I have typical Asian lashes, meaning short and sparse. I thought the idea of "tubes" will give me the length I am always looking for and the volume. Instead, what I got from this is no length and no volume. I got the darkest black color: Blackest Black. Yet, it didn't even seem to make it darker. Very, very disappointed. It didn't seem to make a difference in my natural lashes, except to make them clump together and give the look of wetness. I feel my lashes looked worse. Would rather go back to my MAC Plushlash or even L'Oreal Volume Express. What a waste of my $10.
I love making my long lashes look fabulous and this mascara did this but I struggled with the removal. I thought it would be easy to remove since it is not considered waterproof but waterproof eyemakeup remover did not take it off, soap didn't and the tubes did not slide of when I pulled at them. I ended up with big chunks of mascara in my eyes and the next day in the tissue.
This stuff rocks.I dont know what other MUA ppl on here are thinking by saying this stuff clumps.I have fine lashes and this makes my little lashes look like wow.Its not as advertised about the whole false lashes no mascara can do that but it makes me look very pretty
This made my normally perfect eyelashes clumpy and gross, the only redeeming quality is the ease of removal. Go L'Oreal Telescopic!
Nothing like the commercial.
But then again, we all knew that.
°Does not clump
°Does lenghten your lashes hughly
°It does stay all day
°Does not give you volume, if thats what you´re looking for
°the bursts are not everybodys favourite
°Its quite hard to take off.
recommendation: For take it of, poor in your hand warm water and put it on your lashes for c.a 10 seconds.Then the "collagen tubes" will melt, and you will be able to take the residues with a non-oily makeup remover.
I personally think that its a great mascara.
Horrible, waste of money. Clumpy and just eugh. I would be willing to keep trying with this but the seal on the primer end has broken so when you take it out of the tube its a massive mess of white, you can't see the brush.
I've been hunting for a good mascara for a long, long time. So many of them flake on me, or just look awful. I have short, sparse lashes, so I am really just after a natural look (I don't think any expectation beyond that is realistic for me). The only mascaras I found tolerable in the past were Kiss Me (which was okay) and Neutrogena's Lash Tint (didn't do much, but was better than nothing and at least it didn't flake or smudge). I've tried all of the recent Cover Girl mascaras (hated them all), L'Oreal Voluminous (also hated it), etc. I bought this on a whim, as is sounded like Kiss Me + a primer (back when I bought Kiss Me I also bought a primer, but didn't like it). I like this mascara a lot. But I had to play around with it to make it work. There is far too much product on the brush -- I have to wipe off the residue with a tissue for both the primer and mascara. As directed, I apply the primer, immediately followed by the mascara (and I mean immediately -- I have both applicators out and ready to go when I start). It works very well that way. It isn't amazing, but my lashes are really terrible and this is about as good as I think it'll ever get. I don't find removal to be difficult, and I was very impressed when I had a crying jag recently -- no mess at all (though I'm sure it would have been different had I rubbed my eyes). I expect to buy this again.
