I found this to be a very good mascara. Good lash definition, separation and length with no smudges or flakes. And the black shade really makes my lashes stand out-I love that it a mascara. One thing I've noticed though is that because the wand is thinner than some a LOT of product tends to collect on it. So I always wipe it down before I use it. But overall this stuff does a great job and is CHEEEEEEEAP! :)
I really wanted to love this mascara, but it just didn't work for me. Clumped my eyelashes together although it did lengthen a tiny bit. I guess I shall continue my search for the perfect mascara.
How this gets passed off as a mascara is beyond me. I bought into the hype that it was great. Tried it. Threw it out after 2 days of use.
This is a normal mascara. not too spectacular lol. But I do have to give it credit, its better than some high end mascaras I have tried. Definetly better than L'oreal lash arcitect-(dont purchase!)
It actually separates nicely, lengths a little less than I like but not too bad, and adds a little bit of thickness which is good and stays on all day. No smudging or hard lashes (i hate that!)
Will repurchase in future if low on money and etc.
For the price, this really is a great mascara. Although it only lengthened my lashes a bit, it made them look super full and added curl. It doesn't smudge or clump at all. When I'm low on cash and in need of mascara, this is what I go for!
easily applied, the brush has a nice heft and thickness to it. it did not sting my eyes when going on, or at any time during the day. applied to uncurled lashes, it still lifted them up slightly.
not a huge amount of length, but great volume. made lashes look enhanced, but still natural, not 'out there.'
after 2 hours - no smudging, no flaking, no stinging. i didn't use a lash brush to separate lashes after application, but each lash looks very defined.
after 6 hours - still no smudging or stinging. one flake. and my eyelid isn't twitching - one thing about wearing mascaras i really hate.
after 10 hours - still no smudging or stinging, and no more flaking. also survived crying with careful wiping (i was reading the lorax to my son - i cry when the barbaloots have to leave). no racoon eyes either.
removal - easy, very little residue left, and no soreness in the morning.
awesome product, cheap, one of the best ever. if they make a waterproof version that works this well, it is my new HG. yes, i will buy again. for something this good, there is no reason lancome should ever get another penny from me for mascara.
Update: still loving this, although the mascara does dry out in the tube rather quickly. this is the only bad part, although it might not be a bad thing safety-wise to repurchase mascara monthly. it would add up $$wise, though. Lancome is almost $23 with tax, so $46 a year VS. Rimmel $3 x 12 = $36, woohoo, still a bargain. continued >>
This mascara is awesome! I LOVE the way it "opens up" my eyes and defines,curls, and separates my lashes. Although, I have to admit it doesn't give a dramatic false-eyelash I still like it. 5 pts. for a great mascara!
got this in a swap from a friend, and absolutely love it. It doesn't clump on my lashes and doesn't apply on too thickly. It helps alot with my short stubby lashes ;)
It has nothing to do with the name,but it's cheap and gives natural looking lash and holds the curl faily well.
Nothing extra or super about it. This is indeed a natural looking mascara. Not for me!!
