I cannot believe that I didn't take a second look at this mascara before. I don't know if it's dramatic like CoverGirl claims but compared to the other CoverGirl mascaras, this one has a bit more "flair" to the lashes, so I guess in CoverGirl's point of view, this mascara is dramatic. But anyway, this mascara is the best one I have ever used so far. I know the packaging isn't anyone's favorite but who cares about the packaging if the mascara works? The looks of the tube doesn't matter. Anyway, this mascara provides lovely, flirtatious thickness....you have to thicken the lashes by applying one coat to the lashes (you can wiggle it like 10 times if you want!), wiggling it from the base of the lashes to the tip, and then sweeping the lashes from base to tip to lengthen the lashes (several times). Let the lash dry about 20 seconds (in the meantime go to the other eye and do the same thing), then place a 2nd coat on the lashes you did first, doing the same steps. Putting 3 coats of this mascara using this method gives me the most beautiful lashes I've ever seen. It doesn't take as long as I made it to look either.....it thickens really beautifully.....not QUITE as thick as L'Oreal Voluminous but thick enough for me to notice a favorable change in the thickness of my lashes, that is for sure!! And it separates the lashes PERFECTLY.....and it CURLS them a bit too..........I can't believe it does ALL of those things. It also makes the lashes look like a "fan." I never entertained the thought of using an eyelash curler because it freaked me out, so with this Mascara I don't need to give eyelash curlers a second thought. I like the other CoverGirl mascaras because they have a very similar effect on the appearance of the lashes, but this is my favorite CoverGirl mascara for its overall combined effect of thickening, separating, curling, and fanning. Also, this stuff doesn't smudge one iota.....yet at the SAME time it is SO easy to wash off. I don't know how they made a mascara that has that characteristic, but anyway, that is what I like about the formula. It does NOT smear yet it has been the EASIEST one to wash off.....out of ALL mascaras from other brands I've tried. I will repurchase this again, because I am indeed satisfied with this mascara.
I hadnt started wearing makeup until after this came around, so I never really gave it a second look. Its a shame theyve stopped advertising it. I bought it mainly because of the favourable reviews on this site, and well, i couldnt be happier:D I have moderately long lashes and they do have a bit of curl, but i wanted sumthing to make them stand out, look sexy..i use voluminous but i saw this on sale and i wanted to try something with a hint of blue in it, so i chose the blue black. Im very very happy. Yes, it does clump, so you have to zaig zag the wand horizontally to break up the clumps. Honestly though, it stays on longer than my Voluminous and it lengthens better too. I really like it. For the price, its definitely worth the try.
I bought this in my never ending search for HG mascara, and I love it! Thickens only slightly, but lengthens, and seems to curl my lashes up.
A really good mascara for the price. Quite thickening but not too lengthening on my lashes at least. Good for a natural everyday look.
after i used up my tube of clinique high impact and was broke at the time, i opted for this. well, im glad i did because i love this stuff more than the clinique! long, thick lashes are MINE with this mascara. will def. repurchase when i run out. EDIT: COVERGIRL TESTS ON ANIMALS!!! im never buying this again. i brought the rating down to a 1 because not only does covergirl animal test, this stuff started to make my eyes hurt
This mascara is fabulous. It makes my lashes so dark and luscious...very thick and long. I use this in black and I get great color. I will say that over the course of the day, I tend to get a few smudges at the outer corners of my eyes, but this happens with most mascaras i use and i find that applying just a small touch of a waterproof mascara just to the outer section stops this completely and makes it last all day.
Great thickening, but heavy on lashes and flaky by the end of the day. Wore this for years, but I'm over it now. Try the Rimmel!
This is a great mascara! I have it on all day long and it doesn't smudge at all. This is definitely one of my fave mascaras. It is so cheap too! I don't know what the retail price is but I bought it at a sale for $1!! Bargain! It makes my lashes so thick and long. Definitely a keeper.
This has gradually become one of my favorite mascaras. I have to curl my lashes before mascara. STL leaves them curly, defined, lengthened and nicely fanned out. It is pretty dramatic too.
I have bought lots of mascaras, both low and high end, and nothing has worked for me as much as this mascara. This is a great product that's easily found in drugstores and even grocery stores. I bought it in black and it really creates separation and length on my lashes. I like the fact that you can apply many coats and build up the drama, or apply just a few for a more subtle look. I like the red tube because it's easy to find in my makeup bag. So many mascaras run down my face by the end of the day, giving me the racoon look, but this one does not budge AT ALL and it's not even waterproof!
