I am a Voluminous Full Definition (gold) fan but this to me does the same job without the clumps that Voluminous has to contend with. My lashes get length and volume. Two coats is perfect for day and 3 takes it into night. The packaging is also very sexy, which I have sacrificed with Voluminous. My new favorite.
Fantastic mascara. Lasts through crying and a hot sunny day. The packaging is very pretty. However, it might be a bit heavy. But I think this is my new HG mascara. For $7, I am in love!
I am very picky about mascaras. I have non-existent lashes and need a mascara that builds volume and length. Oh my, this does it!
I have bought Maybelline Collossal, all Cover Girl's, Voluminous, Max Factor's newest 2000 Extreme, and on and on.
I do believe this is what you're looking for if you want very black, standout sooty lashes.
I am very happy!
I'm sort of undecided on this one. I have been on a hunt for a HG mascara. I really wanted this one to be the it mascara for me. It makes my lashes super dark black and super long. I just wish it gave more volume. However, people did tell me that my lashes looked beautiful when I was wearing this. One of my friends told me that my lashes were waving at her. I did experience a little flaking not a lot though. I do LOVE the packing. It looks so sleek and posh! This mascara can get clumpy. It started to clump on me after 4 or 5 coats.
UPDATE: Okay so I went out last weekend and I took a ton of pix and this mascara is amazing. It makes my thin, blonde eyelashes, thick, dark, and volumeous just amazing. Also, it didn't smudge or flake! I can't wait till this stuff is available in Canada!
Update: I no longer wear this. Started to flake and clump.
I had pretty high hopes for this mascara and I wasn't TOO disappointed. I can always judge a mascara from the brush and when I pulled this out of the tube it looked very promising. It really wasn't too bad to be honest but, like another reviewer said, the formula was quite thin. I find that when I first put it on, it's great and my lashes look stunning but by the end of the day, they weren't holding the same great curl. I can live with that though and overall, i really liked this mascara and would probably buy it again. I just always have to buy the newest mascaras that come out so I never stick with one lol
I love this mascara!! It reminds me of MAC Plush Lash. The brush is really big and it makes me small lashes super dark, long and really really thick! I've tried Benefit, MAC, Dior and Lancome's mascaras in the past and this L'oreal one seems to beat them all. The price is okay...$8 at CVS. It's kinda high for a drugstore mascara but it's definitely better than paying $20 for something that doesn't work!!
I dont' know why all the negative reviews. I have fallen in love with this mascara. I usually use NYX Doll Eyes and I have no intention of giving it up. But this is a fantastic quality mascara. Yes, it is following the BIG tube trend on mascaras, but the quality of the product in the tube is good. I get plump, long lashes and for some reason this formula really makes mine curl at the ends. My eye look very wide open with this mascara. This did not smudge, smear, or flake on me and lasted very well. Removed fairly easily with my usual Eye makeup remover. Picked up in Wal-mart for around $7-8. Would I purchase, again, probalby yes,,,,,until the next mascara trend comes out.
I found this product be horrible. To me its not worth your money. I love the Maybeline Great Lash in the Pink and Green tube better than this product.
I'm surprised this has gotten such negative reviews! I really like it! I picked it up on a whim this weekend (knowing that it didn't get favorable reviews, but oddly enough one reviewer's negative comment about it plumping individual lashes, not creating a "fringe," is what made me get it!). I think it's a perfect everyday mascara. I agree that it does fatten individual lashes rather than volumizing the entire lash area - if that makes sense - but for me, that is a positive; it is actually what I want for daytime. It doesn't clump or flake, it defines well, and the Blackest Black shade is indeed BLACK! I don't remove my eye makeup at night (bad, I know!) and it didn't even smear; it actually looked presentable the next morning! I've went a little crazy buying mascaras over the last month (probably 10 tubes!) but I think this is one I will definitely keep in my rotation.
Wow! I thought this was a brand new product! I've never seen it before and I have this sick compulsion to try every new drugstore mascara. I am impressed with it. It reminds me of YSL Faux Cils. I do wipe the brush off with tissue before I apply it, or it is too wet and heavy. The tube is very elegant looking against all the bright yellow, green, and red tubes in my drawer. It's sleek glossy black with L'Oreal in gold. Simple.
