i love this mascara. its between Colossal Volum' Express and Lash Stiletto. this brush is a stroke of genius. the s-curve grabs every lash and curls them upwards. it even reaches my tiny inner lashes and lengthens my outermost ones. its fairly pigmented, and holds curls for HOURS without touch up. i would definitely buy this again, its worth the money.
Another disappointment in my search for the HG. This mascara advertised dramatic length and impactful volume. I got reasonable length, but nothing too spectacular. It looks more impressive from my side profile than from my front. I didn't notice any volume, but there were no clumps. I did not notice any smell, and I really did like the packaging. Cute for an d/s mascara. Other than that, I didn't think there was anything spectacular about this. Just an average mascara.
I've been struggling to find a mascara that doesn't irritate my eyes and looks nice (doesn't smudge, flake, mega-clump).
On the upside, this mascara didn't irritate my eyes into an itchfest. That was the only positive (and enough of one that I really tried to make it work).
On the downside, the clumping was horrid (even after combing, my husband asked about it, and he hasn't commented about any of the mascaras I've tried), and it smudged quite easily, giving the smokey eye look on one lid or the other.
I gave it 2 lippies because of the lack of irritation, but the appearance (clumping, smudging) was pretty lousy. continued >>
Okay mascara for me.
It's waterproof, but not smudge-proof. I'd always end up with black smudges and flakes under my eyes at the end of the day.
It's also a clumpy and dry (especially on my bottom lashes), doesn't go on very smooth, and doesn't give that much volume.
i love this mascara ! it doesnt give the full volume like i hoped but i just throw some l'oreal on first and its works no big deal. it gives me sky high length. a tiny bit on the wet side . my only gripe with it would be removal its very hard to get off even after applying oil and remover 2 times. so i only wear it on the weekends really . other then that its great!
Hey girlies!! Now makeup lovers dont forget that this review should talk about how great the water proof quality is. IT IS AMAZING! Ok when I wrote this review and as you know its the beginning of the summer :). My friend has a pool so I decided to go to maybelline to find a great waterproof mascara. I always wanted to try lash stiletto so of course i purchased it. I swam WITHOUT goggles and my mascara didnt even run. It actually looked more dramatic lol. It kinda lengthens but dosent clump that easily. It looks natural. Please consider this mascara your waterproof hero. NO CURL NO VOLUME ONLY A LITTLE LENGTH NO STAYIING POWER AFTER 12 HOUR
Thanks for reading,
This mascara works for me. It has a rich black color, separates and lengthens the lashes and lasts all day. No flakes. It's the best one that I've tried, yet. I had to try new mascaras since my trusty Max Factor mascara is no longer sold in the US.
not very waterproof. smudges and flakes easily. it's ok i guess. but i will not repurchase.
PROS: Pretty good volume. Decent length building. Quite inexpensive.
CONS: Doesn't build thickness enough. For waterproof, doesn't last long before I get tiny flakes everywhere. Very difficult to use brush
APPLICATION TIPS: Shiseido's primer (even the new one) helps this stay on MUCH longer without flaking. I am a recent convert to using Shiseido's popular curler too.
ALTERNATES: The Falsies by Maybelline (then covered by Clarins Double Fix, to waterproof it) OR The Rocket by Maybelline (also covered by Clarins Double Fix -- or even better, the waterproof version of the Rocket) is wonderful for volume and lots of length. For lots of volume and good length, I like Jordana's Volumizing Mascara and Covergirl Remarkable Washable Mascara, which stays on very well for nonwaterproof.
Yuk - a little length (the spidery looking kind) no volume at all, OK staying power. Will not re-purchase
