I love this mascara! I've received numerous complements within the past week about my eyelashes. It really lengthens and thickens my lashes. Will definitely be buying this again, even though it's out of my usual price range for cosmetics. Just one downer: The wand is a bit oddly-shaped, so it's hard to maneuver sometimes...but otherwise the mascara's great!
This is my daytime/regular use mascara. Its pretty good, gives lots of length and coats evenly. The packaging is a nice interesting shape. I'll keep going to back to this even if its a little on the pricey side.
This is a review for Lancome's L'Extreme mascara in black.
I have a sample size of this. Today I put this on and... wow... I only buy drugstore makeup, but this made me want to buy department store! There was no clumping, and my "naturally clumping" eyelashes (they grow in strange directions) looked separated! How does it do that?! They looked really long. They looked like natural falsies. (I have moderate to sparse lashes.) I took off a lippie because it took all the curl out of my curled lashes. :( And I don't want to curl after applying mascara because there's greater chance of the lashes breaking.
Keep turning back to this. It lengthens and defines. I wish it volumized more. Easy to apply and stays well.
Nice and Black
the bristles on the brush are hard
The Bottom Line:
I got this as a sample and I really like it. I think that it is a nice mascara, but as I am a teenager I dont have the time or money to go around buying HE mascara
This is a really good mascara, It makes my eyelashes so much bigger than what they are
This is my HG mascara. I use the waterproof version. This lengthens my lashes without clumping or flaking. The colour lasts all day, which is a necessity for me as my lashes are blond and it looks awful when only parts of my lashes are black by the end of the day. The price is a bit high, but a tube of this actually lasts me for three months without drying out or becoming funky beforehand like a lot of other brands I have used. My lashes are relatively curly to begin with, so I can't speak to how this works for those who need to curl their lashes, but I find this mascara does not weigh them down or make them look like creepy spider legs. I will buy this again and again without a doubt!
This review is for the waterproof version. I think this is the best waterproof, long-wearing (24hr) mascara I've tried since MF quit making something similar in the 80's. Since then I've poured a lot of wasted money into finding my hg wp mascara... And here it is, at last! I managed to find a fresh two-fer lot at an online auction site, so I have one for my purse or beach/pool tote, and the other at home. Shopping this way helps get around the price tag a bit. It goes easily, has a great brush, will accommodate up to three carefully applied layers, lengthens & thickens without looking fake or cheap, doesn't flake/smudge/run, and does NOT cause my lashes to fall out (as other brands often do.) It also comes off easily with eye makeup remover. I love it an hope Lancome keeps it on the market for a very long time.
I've used and like Lancome mascaras before, so I was expecting that this one would be just as good as the ones I've used in the past. Wrong!
As someone mentioned, it's very dry so you need to work very fast and is difficult to remove (I have the waterproof version) even with eye makeup remover. It also makes my lashes uncurl - I use my lash curler then apply this and they're straighter than they were before curling.
The shape of the part you hold in your hand (the top) is too curvy and makes it awkward to hold properly.
I'm disappointed that I paid about $30 for this. f
When I first used this mascara, I liked it. It really added length to my lashes. However, 1 hour went by, I checked my lashes in my mirror, and my lashes are sticking straight out (no curl at all). This mascara really weighed down my lashes.
The second time I used it, I brought my eyelash curler with me the whole day, and I counted that I need to re-curl my lashes every 1.5 hours.
The third time I used it, I curled my lashes so hard that I slipped and yanked out about 12-15 lashes. That was it! I threw it out.
My conclusion, this mascara really add length; it doesn't clump; however it weigh down curls. Perhaps if you natually have really curly lashes, this would be a good mascara for you.
