i really like this mascara a lot my friends asked me if i can find them a real cheap good quality mascara other than great lash because that irritated there eyes i mainly use expensive mascara so i decide use one like this because it was on sell for 99 cents cheap and i heard it will not irradiate the eyes and it doesn't. this shiz is the bomb i will continue buy oh and a lot of people thought i was using false lashes the most best intensive mascara i used yet ;D
This is mascara is just so so, ive tried many better drugstore mascaras but this is only a dollar so you can't expect too much from it. This claims to lenthen lashes and says its suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lense wearers which I am both. This also says that it strengthes lashes. The length I get with this mascara is decent and it doesnt irritate my eyes at all it also doesnt smudge or flake during the day. However I do have some trouble with this mascara.First of all this is only available in one shade and it would have been nice if there was more vararity. Once you pull the wand out of the tube it has alot of excess product on it that I have to wipe off. When I first got this mascara It applied nicely but over time it starts to get very clumpy even when I do wipe excess product off. I havent noticed my lashes getting any stronger and with this mascara I tend to lose a few more lashes when removing it. Due to this I will not be repurchasing.
There are so many great mascaras out there that I love. I tried this because it was cheap and rated high on MUA. I wish I had put the 2 dollars toward a better mascara. It did not do much of anything and I have long lashes so they do not need much help to look good. Everyone else seems to like this but for me it was just ok and not great.
Update I must give credit to the fact that it did not run or flake. It was good for a natural look.
It's hard for me to start this reveiw, I believe the best way to do this is to do a pros and cons list.
Cheap as all heck! A dollar something!
The brush is perfect for me. Makes it easy to apply.
Easy to build.
Skinny tube, so it fits easily in my makeup bag
It isn't dark enough!
Takes a long time to build the color
Formula is too thin.
Ok, for someone who uses mascara so seldomly, this might work for me. But the cons are actually big cons. I HATE that it's not dark enough, and that it's too thin. I sometimes wear mascara with falsies, but when I'm not, and I want just to darken my lashes, this doesn't do a good enough of a job.
I have very short lashes, and mascaras never really make that much of a dramatic difference for me to be nit-picky. I only use it when I want extra dark definition around my eyes. Maybe I'll find another one, but I love the brush, and the shape of the tube. That usually is enough to for me to repurchase!
This is a pretty nice cheapo mascara! I decided to try it because I love lengthening mascaras and Im rather impressed by this one. The wand is almost the same as maybellines "great lash (originial)" wand but the mascara itself is not liquidy its more creamy. I tend to lean more towards mascara that are more watery than creamy but over all I think I will use it anyways! The only downside is that this mascara only comes in one color (very black) and I like using mascaras that are dark brown to be more natural! So I will probably go back to the great lash again when this is gone.
Ive tried HE and DS mascaras, being a mascara junkie, and this little gem is definitely on my list of keepers. It goes on super smooth and long, buildable volume even for a lengthening mascara. The only thing that I could change is that it doesn't do the best job at holding a curl :(
I bought this on the raving comments and recommendations only...when I came home with the product and unpacked the mascara, opened it and looked at the wand...it didn't look promising at all, to be honest. BUT, if I use it in conjunction with my volumizing mascara (L'Oreal Collagen Extreme Volume Mascara, a black tube with no writing on it..), it really, really lengthens my lashes and makes a big difference!
If I use this mascara alone (NYC Sky Rise) it gives me length, but no significant volume whatsoever. But makeup artists do recommend to work with two different mascaras building your look anyways;-). For the price, it's a good staple.
This deffinitely makes your lashes reach the sky. I love this mascara! It actually makes my lashes reach my eyebrows, its insane! And one tube can last you quite a long time (even though you should throw out mascara after 3 months) :D
The last two mascaras i bought were $29 and this, $1.74 (what a price difference!) I was quite impressed. It's definately better than most drugstore brands (and a few HEs too). If it had cost more, i may have rate it a lippie lower (or probably not have done a review at all). I'm a mascara junkie and grabbed this on a whim when i was picking up something at target. Easily over and out performs many mascaras i've tried that are 10x the price. It may be no Definicils or Givenchy but it's a pretty sweet steal!
I love this. It's great for a natural look and makes my eyelashes really long
