Meh, product. I got it as a sample and I didn't fall in love with it. It kind of weighed my lashes down and it just doesn't compete with the other products out there.
I hate the brush...what is with those tiny spikes on the tip, just what are they supposed to do(besides hold globs of mascara)? I have poked myself in the eye more than once with this brush. It gives a decent amount of volume with a couple coats but really...nothing special that's for sure. I can put Avon on one eye and this on the other and I cannot tell one bit of difference and the Avon mascara brush is WAY better!
I wanted to love this mascara, I really did! I have fine, short lashes and all this mascara did was make them look like little spider legs. It gave me no volume or thickness and was not pretty. I have faith that it works for girls who have thick, luscious lashes already, but unfortunately it did not work for me.
Also, it stays in place until it is scrubbed off, which was way too stressful to deal with.
EDIT: I retried this mascara on a whim, I gotta say my opinion has changed. I wasn't using it to it's full potential by using the little ball at the end of the wand. My only qualm is how difficult it is to remove and that the tube dries up very quickly!
this product is the best, it separates my lashes, makes them look fuller and longer. it also holds my lashes in place after curling them.
I really like this mascara. I prefer wet mascaras and the formula combined with the brush really coats my lashes. However, it can smudge on my bottom lashes. And.....it really is a b$$ch to remove. So much so that if I can't find a eye makeup remover, soap, or oil to get this to come off easier, I won't be repurchasing. Which is a shame as I really do like this mascara. It meets all my requirements - gives me great looking lashes and minimal smudging. But I shouldn't have to "scrub" my eyes to get it off, ya know?
At first when I tried the mini version from my Ipsy monthly subscription, I absolutely loved it! The wand worked wonder, and it looks so chic and sleek for such a mini product.
Then I went ahead purchasing the big version from Sephora, expecting great results. I don't know if the mini one just genuinely works better because its a PR sample, or my hype over it just winded down as I realized how it actually works on my lashes.
To be honest, I did still liked the wand, and the application was still so easy because of such good quality micro fibre. Yet this mascara doesn't hold my lashes ( i have very oily eyelids and short straight droopy lashes) and it smudges everywhere! So maybe it'd work fine for people with normal to dry skin and already good-looking lashes. But for me it unfortunately doesn't work :(
This is my holy grail mascara. It really looks like I'm wearing false lashes. I get loads of compliments while wearing this.
I really don't understand all the rave reviews on this mascara. Firstly, the formula is entirely too wet. All it does is clump up on my lashes and makes it nearly impossible to achieve long, separated lashes. Secondly, I don't really care for the brush. The little spike on the end is annoying and the brush scratches my waterline when I try to get right at the roots of my lashes. For the price tag on this mascara, I expected much better. Luckily, I only bought the trial size so instead of the $20+ price tag, I only ended up spending $10. Maybe once the formula dries some it will be better, but I'm not going to get my hopes up.
I never planned on spending this much money on mascara but since I've been trying to get my eyelashes beautiful on their own (without false eyelashes) I've been searching for a good mascara, non of the drug store mascaras were doing any good for me. I decided to go with this and I'm quite happy with it. It curls my lashes without even needing a curler and lengthens, doesn't do much with thickening but seriously adds length! I love it.
Not too crazy about this mascara, and trust me I wanted to be. For me this did not really legnthen or volumize my medium legnth lashes, even when applied in a few coats. Lately, I have had grest success with the falsies and with my tarte mascaras- amazing brand for eyeliners, mascaras etc. For the price, this product just does not live up to it's awesome reputation. And unfortunately, I have repurchased two times. Ladies, do yourself a favor and skip the hype and pick up something your lashes and or pocket will thank you for instead.
