I love this mascara! It doesn't give a ton of volume, but that's good for my because I don't like the look of thick lashes (it overpowers my face). However, the lengthening and curling effects were beyond anything that I've ever tried. It lasted all day and didn't flake or smudge, and it held a curl really well. HG product!
this one's a winner! it's the closest thing i've found so far to my dc'd HG (Dior Maximeyes) and i love it. it's really dark glossy black, has a wet formula that doesn't clump and doesn't straighten your lashes, holds your curl up well, doesn't flake or smudge on me, and leaves my lashes soft. i wouldn't say it gives TONS of volume, more like nice feathery black lashes. now, onto the things i don't like: the brush is meh to me, i think it could be better w/longer and thicker bristles. and the packaging- eeeek! i HATE it! first of all, i think it's tacky and second of all, i can tell that within the first 10 uses the snakeskin will unglue from the tube and will be useless. then i'll be stuck w/a plain black unmarked tube of mascara! :( but i can live with that since the product is really good. i would definitely repurchase this, and it may become my new HG. *EDIT* i was loving this until i decided to wear my Maximeyes again one day, and it made me so dissapointed. it just doesn't come close, it's not a bad mascara, but compared to Maximeyes it's a bust. so frustrating. **EDIT** i tried this again today out of curiousity, and bleh. it's just so mediocre.
This mascara is near perfect...but since its not doesnt get the five lippies. The packaging is different the faux croc in purple, but whats inside is the best part. The wand seperates and really gives nice volume. My lashes are long but fairly thin, and this gives me the look of falsies, which is what I most love about this mascara. LCL also lenghtens nicely, It gives a moderate curl, but I dont think that it lasts all day. This paired with my shiseido curler are near perfect. The price is a little high for a mascara but this one performs so well, that at $19.00 I dont mind. Ive paid $26.00 for YSL faux cils and this is my opinion is better. The reason why this is not quite perfect, it flakes just the slightest bit.
Packaging is super cute. I do like the mascara, it gives me really long lashes. I usually buy BadGal Lash but I think Iam gonna switch to this.
I love this mascara. One of the only mascaras that I actually used the whole bottle up. HG mascara when I can afford it.
I got this mascara in trial size in a discovery kit I ordered from QVC. I really really like it. I think it gives the lashes a lot of length. More length than volume though in my opinion. Its also a nice glossy black. With 2 or 3 coats I can achieve really pretty dramatic lashes. I think the packaging is a bit gimmicky but I guess its cute. I did go ahead and purchase the full size because I liked it so much although I haven't used it yet since I've bought so many drug store brands since. There are really so many good mascaras you can buy at the drug store rather than spending almost 20 dollars for a department store brand. I may not repurchase this product for that reason.
Ok, so I love this mascara. It makes my lashes look beautiful and gives them that "false" look without looking "false". You know wadda mean? I wear this and my lashes hit my glasses! BUT. Within an hour of applying it, I have black settled into my creases below my eyes. Not pretty! So, what's a girl to do? I keep thinking that maybe there is a secret weapon out there that I don't know about that will keep your mascara on your lashes. I now resume my hunt. Update!! Have ya'll noticed they just came out with Lights, Camera, Splash? Waterproof mascara! Can't wait, hope its good!
I agree with the reviewer before me. I'm not getting all the negative reviews. I've not had any problems with smearing, smudging, flaking or clumping. I've only had lashes that are actually noticeble. They are lengthened and soft, not heavy and stiff. I've had absolutely no trouble with eye irritation with this product which is normally a problem with mascara for me. I use the tarte perfect lash curler also but not everytime I apply this mascara... mostly just when I have time to play. The packaging on this is just too cute. The price on the other hand... not too cute. I think it is ridiculously priced at $18. I mean, c'mon... it's just mascara. However, it's the best mascara I've ever used (and I've tried PLENTY) so I'll continue to reluctantly pay the $18.
This stuff is excellent. I can't see how people don't like it. It gives me "movie star" lashes and doesn't clump, smudge, smear, etc. But maybe its how I put it on. I think some people don't know how to apply mascara correctly.
This mascara does give nice volume. However, it does smudge, clumps and flakes. I wouldn't say it's that bad since the flaking is minimum and only clumps if I layer it more than 2 times. The smudging could come from the concealer I'm wearing. Ah, I wish I could find a better concealer since Laura Mercier tends to give me these spots by the end of the day and it's too wet when applied. Anyhow, the thing about this mascara that most women love is the packaging. I couldn't care less about it though, even when my favorite color is violet. The body part fell off when I was using it, ugh. I'm not a big fan when it comes to this. My motto is if you're going to do it, do it properly. This mascara isn't that bad. It doesn't weight down my lashes or take away my curls. It gives volume. However, it tends to flake, clump, and smudge if you layer it. Not good for its price. Overall, 3 stars. :\ Wouldn't purchase again.
