I tried the waterproof version of this in Rich Black after asking a friend what mascara she was using because her lashes were so nicely defined and her mascara un-smudged at the end of a long day. This mascara reminded me a little of L'Oreal Featherlash but it's much more dry and does not clump. Very good for everyday use - but I found it left my lashes rather crisp and was extremely difficult to wash off. I think I will go back to my old standby Almay One Coat waterproof, which is just as natural but easier to wash off. This would be a good option if you want definition and separation rather than fullness. EDITED TO ADD: After a few weeks, I am downgrading this to a 3 - because I've found that when you try to wash it off, it spreads a bit and leaves smudges under the eyes that take several more washes to get off.
I just saw the reviewer below comment on how cheap makeup seems to be in the US and was very tickled - yes, it is, and it's something I missed when I was away from the US, but I don't grudge the US girls their cheap mascara since they have to pay tens of thousands of dollars for college :)
Where did you go 2000 Calories?? I can't find you anywhere!!!
I am so jealous of you guys!! You guys in the states pay so little for cosmetics its not funny! Im from Australia, and for this Mascara you pay around $20 for it. I have read through several reviews on here and I have noticed you all say how dear and expensive make up is, if I was paying $3 for mascara I would be stoked!
Consider yourselfs lucky thats your cosmetics are so cheap!!
Love the curved brush. I got this for $2.99 on base and I am thinking this will be my HG for mascara. It lasts all day with no flaking or clumping when applied, separation and lengthing was good. I just wish it curled a bit more, but an extra step is worth it. I believe that this compares to Lancome, which is good if you can afford it every few months...Give 2000 calorie a try, you will not lose much if you do not like it and if you have little grey hairs popping out of your ponytail, you can use this to cover them up.
I have not used this mascara in some time now, I have been using clinique glossy lately, but I think I will pick up one of these next and save some money! This mascara will not make your eyelashes fall out.
I am so suprised I have never tried this before. I always used Maybelline Full and Soft but this blows it away. I started using it after I saw a girl at work using it and asked her what it was. Her lashes always looked great. My HG mascara.
THE BEST!! I've tried every mascara from chanel to clinique to lancome, and I always come back to this product. It gives me long, lush lashes for such a low price. Overall, it's my all time favorite mascara because it always performs, and it's so cheap.
Mmmmmm I love this mascara. I can't exactly say it's an all-in-one, as it never gives me the volume I'm looking for. However, its separating skills are amazing. My lashes have never looked so flirty before. To get lush fake lashes, I pair it w/ Waterproof Full n' Soft.
I am surprised at the quality of this product considering it's from a DS. I first thought the curvy wand would make my lashes clump together but with a few strokes this mascara has added length and volume. I pair this with Covergirl Lash Exact for extra length. Paired together it makes my eyes look huge. Cheap too and I like the tube =D
I will repurchase.
Yuck!!! THis is a clumpy MESS that makes my lashes look like thick spider legs. I even tried the LP wand and it's stil just cheap and awful looking :( My search is till on
The formula of this mascara worked alright, though it was a bit flaky towards the end of the tube. The main problem I had with it is the color. It is not black, or brown, but a weird blue gray. I suppose this is ok for some people, but I prefer true black on my already nearly black eyelashes.
