What an awesome mascara!! this mascara not only gave my lashes volume but also made them super long, the staying power is incredible I put it on this AM and is right now 9pm and it still looks as good as it did when i put it on. Worth the price IMH.
hmmmm, what a disappointment. I love the late Kevyn Aucoin and I love most of his products. However, this mascara is pretty bad. The packaging is beautiful. It feels heavy, beautiful red casing with a metallic edge and the brush is a slim wand which gets right onto every lash. But the formula dried stiff and heavy. Rather than volumising it dries clumpy and loads onto lashes.
I think I may know why this product got so many great reviews, but has not worked well for some users. I bought both this formula and the curling mascara when they first came out. I was loath to pay the shipping for replacements, so on a trip to NYC last weekend, I eagerly went into Henri Bendel's and bought two new tubes in Black. This is a completely different product from the first time I used this mascara. At first, this was the best stuff by far that I had ever used. I don't know if they changed the formula (what else could have happened - tubes too old?), but it's now the WORST mascara ever. It flakes, clumps, and drops off onto your face all day long. I can't say how disappointed I am, and I plan to return the tubes and get a refund, but will now have to pay for return shipping on my own dime. Very disappointing!
This is the worst mascara ever, for me. I was all hopped up to get it after reading many rave reviews in magazines...HOW could anyone have been using the same item I did?? Where do I begin with the horror story? It clumped, flaked off EVERYWHERE. Every time I would blink, it was like black snow flurries everywhere. The brush/wand was no good. To top it off, my usually not sensitive eyes itched and burned so much that someone at work asked why I was crying! It went in the garbage the next day.
This is a very good mascara. I really like the skinny wand because it could reach the base of all of my lashes. The formula is interesting- kind of souffle-like- and stayed on very well and did not clump AT ALL. Finish is feathery soft and washes off in a pinch.
This volumizing mascara comes with a small, thin wand, to get to every last lash. I found it really thickened my lashes, not clumpy at all. If there was a retailer near me I would definitly reorder this mascara, but ordering from the U.S.,( duties and exchange rate), since I am from Canada, it is a little too pricey for me to reorder this on its own.
Please stay far away from this mascara! At first I thought that it was great, but after wearing it for a few days I noticed black flakes on my face. They were my eyelashes! They were actually falling out from the mascara! How scary! That has never happened to me before.
