I've been using this mascara for.... a long time. I started using it because my sister said it's what the Victoria's Secret models use for the runway. (Not sure if it's still true, but it was back then).
I've tried other mascaras during only to be disappointed or horrified. I bought Clump Crusher a few weeks ago and didn't like it at all. Diorshow in black (090) is it for me.
It's true it does seem to dry out quickly, and towards the end of its life the top will never screw on quite right, which I think contributes to the drying. It is on the expensive side... but it's so worth it for me. The price *has* gone down over the years, and it's now $25.
I love it and will probably keep using for a long time.... highly recommended.
This is a great mascara, no doubt about it. For the price, however, not worth it. CG Clump Crusher combined with a second coat of CG super thick lash does waaaaayyyyy better than this mascara or any of the other HUNDREDS of mascaras I've tried. And for the record, the combined cost of those two is around $13... which is a hell of a lot better than the $30 a tube I used to regularly shell out for this one. The two CG mascaras together will make your lashes long, thick, & dark... all while remaining clump-free. Amaaaazing! Trust me, I'm a total mascara snob!!!
This used to be my HG mascara until I found ysl faux cils Shocking. This mascara is good for volume and it does not flake. But the brush is big so it's hard to control. I also need to apply about three coats to get volume. I also feel like it does nothing to give my lashes a curl or to keep the curl after I use a lash curler. I think that the result I get using the lash plumping serum with this mascara is as good as just using ysl faux cils shocking alone so I have switched over. But when I feel like I need some change I come back to this.
I do love this. I have long lashes, but they aren't very thick. This gives all the volume I want, and adds a bit of length. Have used this for years, and the only thing I don't like about it is the tube. I find it gets messy quickly and won't close properly. Other than that, this is just another review telling you to immediately purchase this. There simply isn't a better mascara out there. The end.
This is my HG mascara. It lengthens and thickens my lashes. I don't like the full size in almost any mascara. Large mascaras seem clumpier and to dry out quicker.I bought the Lash Amplifying Duo. You get a mini lash serum and mini Dior Show. It has better staying power than other mascaras I have tried. It also doesn't run if my eyes tear up a little from allergies.
This is my HG mascara, have been wearing it for 3 years after seeing it in Sephora as a favourite of theirs. I cannot say enough good this about it, it does everything I need it to! Gives great length and volume and lasts for a long time! I have tried many mascaras over the years but this one is the best!!! I don't mind that it's a little pricey because to me, it's worth it.
I did purchase this a couple of times but can't justify paying the price when cheaper (ok, much cheaper!) brands deliver better results. At first this mascara looks amazing but I found it heavy on my lashes and kind of dry. It is supposed to be safe for contact lens wearers but my eyed always felt irritated toward the end of the day. So I would save this for night time make-up looks.. but that didn't seem right so I went back to using Rimmel!
It was one of my favourite mascaras, but I couldn't justify buying it anymore because of its price comparing to Maxfactor False Lash Effect or Covergirl Lash blash fusion - which give you really good outcome as well.
Too expensive for the quality. It does make my lashes look fuller, but I'd rather use Covergirl than this.
I have to say, this mascara is probably one of the best I've tried. It really does a great deal to lengthen and volumise my rather sparse lashes. However - has anyone else noticed how incredibly difficult it is to remove at the end of the day? My standard cleanser, normally so good with other mascaras, just doesn't do the trick with this one. I end up with panda eyes! For this reason, I wouldn't buy it again.
