I love this mascara. It's not expensive and it does a great job! My lashes are not long and thick, but this mascara makes them at least three times longer and thicker. I definitely repurchase it.
I tried this mascara in soft black after reading reviews here. I'm really liking this mascara. I have naturally long dark lashes. I am just always looking for some extra drama. I used a eyelash curler before and after using this and my lashes looked huge. It is a little clumpy with a few coats but an eyelash comb fixed that. I didn't have any flaking or running even after crying. So far this is a keeper. For the price it is definately worth trying.
Today I was experimenting with both this mascara and with fake eyelashes (individual clusters) for the first time. After applying this mascara I wondered why I needed the falsies. My Asian lashes looked uncharacteristically long, healthy and natural, and not all crunchy and brittle like they get with my Shu Uemura Basic. And then I thought, oh well it'll probably smudge on me and I'll know it was too good to be true and have to shell out S$45 for the Shu Basic again. But I was out for 8 hours in the Singapore heat (32-34 degrees Celsius, 94% humidity) and not a single smudge or flake! And this is supposed to be the washable version.
I'm even more amazed because I bought the mascara 18 months ago from the UK (unopened, but still I know it wasn't a wise move) and it wasn't dried out at all (unlike my expensive Shu Basic which is absolutely dehydrated after only a few months).
I'm going to run more road tests, and also try it out with my Shiseido Mascara Base underneath. If anything, it should get better! This mascara is amazing!
Someone call the cops because a mascara that works this good and cost so little has to be illegal! OMG I cannot believe how well this mascara performs. I am usually a Mary Kay girl, but since my HG (endless performance) has been discontinued I have been in the market for a replacement. This is not as good as the endless performance, it's better. I got this in black brown a Walgreens yesterday on sale for $2.99. Given all of the rave MUA reviews, I picked this mascara over the CG lash perfection. This mascara is exactly what MK ultimate mascara claimed to deliver but didn't. It defines, seperates, thickens, curls, doesn't fade, flake, or pull out lashes, and is easy to wash off...everything I ever wanted in a mascara. ON top of that the color was perfect. not to light and not to dark. My lashes look so real with this color. I was able to get up to 5 coats today without any clumping. I have found the key is to apply, comb out, let dry, then apply another coat. I am amazed at how uniformed this mascara made my lashes look. Usually with other mascaras a few lashes would be long and a couple would be short, but with this they are all in line like uniformed soldiers. I'm going back to walgreens today to buy more.
This was my most recent stab at finding a great drugstore mascara and all I can say is wow! Right now I'm wearing it on one eye with YSL (my HG) on the other and this actually looks better. It thickens and lengthens and curls and lasts a surprisingly long time; I think I paid 4.99 at Target for this and given how fast I go through mascara, I may just be in love. This definitely blows more famous mascaras out of the water, like Armani Star Lash, Diorshow, Bourjois, etc. I think YSL looks a little better but only for the first month, before it begins to dry out. I will recommend a metal lash comb for this, just to groom it to the full effect, and I'd advise girls with skimpy lashes to use a light hand.
I like Max Factor 200 calorie mascara. It makes my eyelashes longer and thicker and can be built up for maximum impact. My eyelashes are very long and thick so I don't always wear mascara but when I do this one is the mascara I use, in black or navy. It doesn't pull my eyelashes out, it's long wearing and non-drying. The fat brush makes it possible to put it only to the ends of your eyelashes to open your eyes up for a simple day time look or you can layer it for the night without clumping although I would use a brush to seperate if I'm wearing more than one layer for top notch grooming! Also it's cheap so if you wear mascara every day and don't want to shell out a lot every few months, give it a go. I buy it..all the time..
I love this mascara. I've been using it religously everyday for the last two years, and used it years before then as well but experimented with other mascaras. I like mascara to be noticable when i wear it and this does that job nicely without looking overdone. Great for fattening up lashes to how you like them. I like them quite dramatic so use two or three coats. It lenghthens, seperates, volumizes and curls with no smudges or flaking. I've found that the thing to remember with this is to replace after around 4 months or it will lose it's effect. When i use this i use lash curlers, put a layer of the mascara on and let it dry, comb through with a lash comb and put on another layer of mascara. It is a good all rounder but i havent given it a 5 rating as i usually have to touch it up a few times a day to keep the effect and always on the look out for something new, although i always come back to 2000 calorie!
fFrom the field of "regular" (non-tubing, non-water-resistant) formulas this is one of the best
I thought I would try this after all the great reviews ...but it's just ok. I need volume and this definitely did not give me double the volume like it claims, it did not fill in the gaps. This stuff seems better for holding a curl and lengthening, which I don't need. It also goes on clumpy even after wiping the brush, and it doesnt last long. Disappointed and going back to CG super thick lash.
I had high hopes for this mascara after hearing lots of good things about it. It is NOT working for me. I love having long, full eyelashes, so I normally use 3 or 4 coats of mascara. One coat with this and I get spider lashes! It is so clumpy! The ends of my lashes get all stuck together, and I need a lash comb every time. At least it wasn't expensive. I definitely will not be repurchasing.
