gah. i was actually expecting more frm the product, the different packaging was tempting so i have to give it a try. it seemed like it didnt do much for my lashes just a pretty avg mascara, nothing great but not bad.
I love this Mascara! My criteria for mascara are lengthening, separation, and smudge and flake resistance. This one hits on all three. The wand is large but I've actually made fewer mistakes since switching to this mascara. It doesn't seem to clump and it does an excellent job of defining and lengthening each lash without making a mess.
I only recently switched to MAC products and have really paid attention to how my makeup looks at the end of the day and so far, this mascara holds up better than anything I've ever tried and yet it removes easily with soap and water or a make-up remover wipe. Some mascaras have great staying power but they are so durable that it feels like your lashes are breaking when you try to clean it off. Opulash doesn't do that and I think my lashes might be healthier now!
I never like MAC mascaras...I have no idea why I decided to try this one months after its launch. I finally got around to using it and I'm in love. The brush is that huge Diorshow size, which normally scares me, but it just works. My lashes are incredibly separate in the application of this. Separation is a huge deal to me. It's not too wet either, so I very rarely if ever have to wipe residue off of my eyeshadow. It never smudges or flakes, which is the MOST important of all. Volumizes...holds curl...but keep in mine I have naturally long/thick lashes, but it is always difficult finding a decent mascara no matter what.
I really like Opulash. Normally, I prefer Lancome mascaras, but Opulash really surprised me.
This formula is moderately thick and not runny at all. The brush is HUGE but it's manageable. I do tend to get it on my upper lid if I'm not careful. One coat will give you a very natural, feathery look. Two coats will up the drama. Three coats may clump. Coat with care.
It wears well. I haven't experienced any flaking or smudging and it doesn't run much on me, even when I cry. It's not terribly difficult to remove, either. I use an oil-based cleanser and it comes off with gentle massage. I'd definitely keep buying this, since the price is much less than Lancome.
I think it's the only I waited until after 3 months of using this product to write this review. I wanted to make sure to note if it dries out fast. For the first couple of weeks, it coated my lashes really well and added lots of volume. But after 6 weeks, the formula started drying out. My 3 criterias are volume, smudge proof and holds curl. Of the 3, this mascara met 2. It added volume and stay smudge proof on my oily under eyes until I am ready to take it off. I curl my lashes with my Shu curler, then put on Opulash mascara, wait for the mascara to dry, then turn on my Japonesque heated lash curler and recurl my lashes. What I don't like: the big brush that makes it hard to put on the mascara without getting it on my eye lid and the extra step of recurling my lashes with the heated curler.
This mascara is a disappointment. It doesn't hold a curl, and the formula is some what dry - it also clumps really easily. I have medium/long eyelashes, and all this did for me was darken them. Zero length, zero curl, zero volume. On the plus side, it doesn't flake or smudge, and it removes easily with makeup remover.
My lashes are fairly long for an Asian but they are pretty sparse. This mascara has a chemical smell to it and leave my lashes feeling hard and spiky. I would not buy this again considering i think some drugstore mascaras are better and cheaper
This mascara is as good as or better than diorshow, less expensive. I have long, thick eyelashes, and it emphasizes them perfectly. It makes me look as though I'm wearing false lashes
ok for lengthening and separating, it does a great job. for volumizing and thickening, nope, doesn't do it. i have been using this and then my lancome hypnose on top still. i was hoping for a cheaper version of lancome, but i guess not. so if your looking for length and separation only, i would def recommend this. UPDATE: after using this for a few months, i have decided it like it when i mix it with zoom lash, i use 2 coats of this and then one coat of zoom lash to finish it off. looks nice and long and thick after that!!!
I have been using this mascara for a while now and It isn't the best mascara to me. The formula is a little bit dry and it isn't that black, more of a onyx black. I bought it because of the nice wand but I found that it is a tad too long for my taste. I do like the sleek packaging so that's a plus. But I would not repurchase.
