HG! I bought this as my first mascara ever back when I was 14, and after that my curiosity of makeup kept me from coming back to it. I recently bought it at Sephora to get free shipping, and am I glad I did! I have been using this every other day since I bought it! It makes me look like I have naturally dark, glossy, long lashes. It's absolutely beautiful and never clumps. The packaging is simple and beautiful, and I love the price - it's definitely on the cheaper end of the high end mascaras. I will purchase again, and again, and again!
Natural, natural, natural!
No flaking, easy application, and most of all NATURAL! This is definitely my HG mascara for work/professional functions. It defines and emphasizes my lashes without going over the top.
The one downside is that it is a bit heavy and weighs down my curled lashes. If I want my lashes to still have a bit of curl after mascara, I have to curl them extra curly to end up with a little curl.
Other than that, its my HG!
I paid 14.50 plus tax, and it was recommended by the Clinique counter lady as good for contact lens wearers. I've worn it all day, no flaking, so on that level it was as promised, it doesn't irritate my eyes. I like the jet brown, it's not harsh and good for a more natural look. Without multiple layers, it doesn't do much for me. When I put on multiple layers it gets spiky looking. I think I'll use this mostly for my minimal makeup days, when I just want to look polished but not "done." I've used almost every expensive and brand name mascara out there, and for me nothing beats cheap Last Blast for volume and drama. But for a more natural look, this is fine, it's just rather pricey for what it is, so I wont get it again.
Edited to add after using it for a few weeks, it goes on too wet, gives me spiky spider lashes and flakes easily. I'll finish it because it's my only brown mascara, but I wont get it again.
I've been using this mascara now for about 7 weeks, and I love that it does not flake, looks very natural on my lashes, and it does not irritate my very sensitive eyes. The tube is lovely as well- it's shiny and metal in appearance. I will definitely repurchase it in the future.
Sometimes take a while to layer but you get control over the intensity
Classy classy mascara- no spider eyes or mess
DEFinitely a great product.
I like this mascara. I might be pretty easy to please when it comes to mascara though, since all I really look for is one that isn't going to clump or leave dry flakes on my under eye skin (Although, that is surprisingly hard to find).
I am very natural when it comes to makeup, so I wasn't looking for anything extreme, so this one works great for me! I have Clinique's Naturally Glossy Mascara in Jet Brown, which is a dark brown that I think would work well for most eye colours and skin tones. However, if you are looking for something darker, the alternative colour is Jet Black.
This mascara comes in a really sleek, silver tube - I have no problems at all with the packaging. My only qualm about this product is the price. I believe I bought it at something like $18CAD, which is a little pricey for me, but if I don't find anything I like better, I will definitely repurchase this.
This is my staple mascara. It has a natural look, but accentuates my eyes nicely. Eye products tend to make my eyes itchy, and this doesn't bother them at all. No flaking, smudging or raccoon eyes. I've been using it for over ten years and love it.
I have short, sparse & poker straight eyelashes. This product clearly was not designed for someone like me - but I was intrigued by the MUA reviews and also fancied trying something more natural and less clump-tastic than my usual Estee Lauder and YSL thickening/lengthening mascara brands. I was so impressed - despite having the most rubbish eyelashes in the world this product definitely accentuated what I have, in a v natural way, and I also found it to be *slightly* thickening and lengthening - again, in a very natural way. Enough so that I could go out and party with it on, and not feel like I had a bad case of eyelash baldness. The brush is fantastic too - really easy to use and coats all eyelashes. Great product.
First of all, this product is amazing. I would compare this to cover girl lash blast length in how it performs, except with ZERO flaking and irritation. Makes my lashes look naturally long and beautiful without saying HEY LOOK I'M WEARING MASCARA! Not to mention, the packaging is so sleek and looks great. 5 stars all the way.
Excellent mascara for daytime wear! It never ever clumps, and stays put until you decide to remove it (please note that you will need a good eye make-up remover to clear the mascara away completely). I put on two layers, and get very defined yet very natural lashes. For evening wear though, I will use something else as this mascara is definitely not designed for "big" evening or clubbing look.
I also have to warn: If you have short or thin lashes, you might be disappointed even with the "day look"; it really only gives basic definition, and is more suitable for women with naturally good lashes (at least some lenght and thickness already).
EDIT: Had to take one lippie off, as I noticed over time that it started smearing a bit on my upper eyelid. Not sure why (I recently switched my make-up, so could it be that? Or the warming weather? Has it gone bad after two months...?) but I am certainly not happy about discovering and having to wipe off the black marks every time I go to the ladies :(
