Okay, it is possible that my glowing review about this product may be because I haven't had tooo much experience with lengthening mascaras, considering I ALWAYS go back to my stand-by L'oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black, but I'll give this a shot:
From the words of Katt Williams: "This sh*t right here, n*gga. THIS SH*T RIGHT HERE."
OH. MY. LORD. I already have pretty long lashes (when coupled with the right mascara, mind you), but this mascara TOTALLY summoned their full potential.
After about two or three coats, the length is remarkable. When I was stuck with my older mascaras, my eyelashes were less than impressive, which really bothered me considering how beautiful and long they usually looked. THIS MASCARA definitely takes the cake and cured me of my dry spell.
Basically, if you're looking for a lengthening mascara, THIS is your match. You will NOT be disappointed. Volume is sub-par, but then again, this mascara isn't even geared towards that aspect so that's not much of a game-changer. And as for color/drama, even in blackest black, the color doesn't do much for me, but that's fine. That's what my baby, L'oreal, is for.
So yeah. PURCHASE THIS BABY. NOW. I kid you not, it is life-changing...... I'm not even exaggerating man, I created an account this website JUST so I could write a review about this macara. If that doesn't spell out how wonderful this mascara is, I don't know what will.
worst mascara i have ever used. does nothing for your lashes. i am lucky to have natural long lashes and mascara helps curl and volumise them but this did the opposite. made them look thin and not at all volumised.
takes 5 mins just to build up the lashes.
do not buy and would never recommended. so disappointed
I have to say this mascara isn't half bad! I have short and sparse (read: terrible) lashes so I'm always trying new mascaras to find my HG. While this isn't it, I would buy it again if it was on sale. At first I wasn't sure, but the more I used it the more I liked it. I don't know that the fibres I see on the brush actually attached to make my lases longer. But I did notice increased length and nice definition. And it's really nice and black. I like the wand because it actually can grip my teeny lashes and coat them, unlike all these new rubbery wands that are saturating the market. And I've been using this tube for about 2 months now and I haven't noticed any drying out yet. This mascara also doesn't smudge or flake off halfway through the day, although I think it might if it was really hot and you were a little "glowy" lol
All in all, it's pretty good! I like it :)
I am 47 yrs old. My lashes are on the thin side. The only reason I have lashes right now is due to all the lash serums that are out now. I still have some bare spots however, but not after I use this product. I LUV, LUV, LUV IT!!! I curl my lashes in the mornings, then put on two coats of illegal lengths and I have the lashes I had at age 20!! Its exciting and I feel great wearing this product. It also does not weigh my thin lashes down. Due to the fact that I saw the words Product Discontinued associated with this mascara here on this site, I am going to go out and buy about 10 tubes of this stuff tomorrow!
very very disappointed with this product.It took quite a few coats of the mascara to get any length on my lashes.......I would never buy this product again......
It didn't really do what was advertised but It wasn't terrible. I did see fibers on the brush but I don't honestly think it made my lashes long. Maybe it was just me.
I would like to believe that I have pretty realistic standards when it comes to products. I usually only take the time to review things that have over-exceeded or excessively underwhelmed my expectations. This product, as a mascara, was just....average. But the reason that I am giving it such a low review score is because it didn't do what it advertised it would do...which was to make your eyelashes look 4mm longer. Compared to the other kinds of mascara that I have used (I have used many different kinds offering different effects) this mascara actually made my lashes look shorter :p So here is a straightforward review:
Cons: Did not lengthen, did not create volume(I realize it didn't promise to do this.) I got the darkest black shade, and I would compare it to a light black or even really dark brown almost. The brush was the cheapest one I have ever used. It was a really really light thin plastic. Have you ever used the one-time-use brushes for samples (like at Macys or a Mary Kay party) that are disposable? This brush was pretty much exactly like that. I felt like it was going to snap when I was using it.
Pros: If you like a 'natural' makeup look, this mascara is good. It was pretty lightweight and I felt like I was wearing nothing. It barely looked like I even wearing Mascara (and I put several coats on to experiment with it.) It cost me about $7 (rounded up) (although since I wanted a somewhat dramatic look, it was a waste.)
So in conclusion: as a lightweight natural looking mascara this is good, but since that look is pretty easy to achieve I would find something cheaper. As a lengthening mascara, this was terrible. Maybe it was just my lashes but this product did nothing for them that they had advertised. I will certainly not buy again, as I can easily purchase another kind with better results.
This is an okay mascara. It does lengthen somewhat. I feel like there must be some kind of trick to get the fibers to stick to the lashes. It feels like some of them stuck and some of them didn't. Don't expect anything too dramatic from this mascara. The blackest black color isn't really that dark. It does absolutely nothing for volume. I doubt I'll buy this again.
I want you to think of all the things that make a mascara bad. Ok. This mascara does that.
I'm going to let it sit for a while and give it another try... mascara sometimes has a way of reformulating after air gets to it. I'll update this review if anything improves.
This is by far the worst mascara I've ever had. I didn't have any problems with flaking, but my eyelashes almost looked bare with it on. The packaging is just super cheap; it looks like the label is clumsily stamped on and the wand is super skinny with super short bristles and it seems too small for the opening (slides out with no friction to pull excess mascara off). If I have to describe my perception of it, it's like absolutely no thought was put into the packaging/wand itself and that maybe it was rushed to production because of the ongoing fiber mascara hype. However, my lashes looked shorter (than with any other mascara) and no fuller than naturally. I dropped about ten bucks on it and seriously it was an absolute waste.
