Although this mascara does generally add length and darkens my eyelashes, I wouldn't say its particularly special :/ I had high hopes but it didn't quite meet up to its name. It sometimes drops underneath my eyes and is an absolute PAIN trying to get off at the end of the day! I have to use about 3 sides of a cotton pad to get it off just one eye. Its an okay product but I won't be buying it once its ran out!
LOOOOOOOOOVE this mascara. I've tried the regular Telescopic in the silver tube and it works just as good! But this is great! I get the length that I would. The brush applies well, however....sometimes I get too close to my eyes and when it pokes..it hurts. I mean, bearable pain but anything poking at your eye will hurt. It's odd how this only happens when I apply it to my left eye. But anyway, I would repurchase this mascara. Like I said, GREAT length and it stays on well. My lashes don't feel crunchy/stiff...just perfect. With one layer, I can get away with long lashes already...with two its even better. As for the clumps that others may get, I don't notice it. Sometimes my lashes can get spidery looking but c'mon...the length is gorg! Since that only happens every once in a while, I still wear this mascara and will alwaaayys purchase it. :)
Teerrrriiiibbbbllleee... It was 11$ in Canada and it makes my lashes clumped together, and it smears. I am so disappointed! The brush is terrible too.
OBSESSED! I was really skeptical when I saw the wand. I normally hate the small, plastic and bendy brushes. But I have to say that I'm very impressed. I have very short, blonde lashes and they look so long with this mascara!! :)
LOVE !!! Best out. Favourite mascara, used to use lancome hypnose but this has come on first coz it lasts way longer is cheaper and very good quality.
- fantastic length
- shiny and DARK black
- wet formula which I prefer
- volume!!!!! You need to use the brush properly. I swear I get compliments on the thickness. Everyone asks what mascara I use.
- cheap compared to department store
- none if you know how to
1. Use the flat side !!!! Most people use the comb but if you want volume too flat side. Hold it at the base of your lashes and push towards eyelid. Hold for 4 secs
2. GENTLY stroke up . This makes curl and let's tge formula stick to tips of lashes.
3. Let dry for 40secs. Its a wet formula so make sure it's nearly dry but not complety
4. Add 1 to 2 additional coats accordingly by stroke lightly upwards. Don't wiggle.
5. If you curl when dry your lashes will look fake :) but only on nights out coz it's damaging to do it all the time.
This has been my favorite mascara for a few years. I had the gold tube before this one and loved that one too. My lashes look incredibly long when I wear it and I get heaps of compliments. I've tried many other mascaras and nothing compares.
I'm a mascara junkie. I love trying new ones and have tried many, although none over $20 - I'm on a budget! This is my favourite mascara by far and the best in it's price range. The special brush lengthens my lashes to an "almost falsie" length, and it does a good job curling them too. It normally doesn't clump, but if it does, I just move the brush over my lashes a few more times and it gets rid of the clumps. Anyone who is having problems with clumps may not be applying this mascara correctly. Several of my friends have been amazed when watching me apply this mascara and seeing the difference it makes - they went out and bought it too. It lasts a very long time (I've gone out and partied for hours and have then come home and slept with it on for 10 hours and my lashes still looked awesome when I woke up) and it doesn't smudge. Overall, the best mascara I have ever used!
Although I only gave 3 lippies, I would buy again. This really lengthens my upper lashes but I have SUCH a hard time applying this to my lower lashes. It gets all over my under eye skin, and is totally messy. Maybe I am applying it wrong? So, good for upper lashes - lower lashes not so much.
I like the tiny brush but the formula is too wet and thus it destroys my curl I put in with my eyelash curler and it ends up making my fine lashes look like less than they are, like I have fewer lashes than I have--who wants that? It does last well but it doesn't do much for my lashes overall. I won't buy this again because I know I can do better and let's face it, it wasn't free which is the ONLY way I would use this again.
The best thing about this mascara is the colour. I love very black mascaras. The formula is quite wet and I'm not a fan of that. I find that it volumizes more than it thickens, but it also clumps my lashes together. I really have to sweep the wand through my lashes to try and separate or else I end up with what looks like four thick lashes. I usually go over it with another mascara to define all my lashes a little more. It's just too tricky to work with, I won't be repurchasing.
