I looove this mascara. it does wonders for my lashes. it lengthens and with more than one coat, really volumizes. the brush really makes it great with it's rounded, tapered shape and traditional bristles. it is scented like roses which kinds makes it feel high end. I have bought this over a dozen times. my fave of the volume express range even though I really like most of them.
I got this in very black.
It's like $5-6 normally, but if you're lucky enough to catch it on clearance or if you have a coupon (or both!) then this mascara would be a steal!
Just your average mascara. The packaging is whatever. I like how it's yellow because it easily stands out from your other makeup items.
Its not watery or runny when you first buy it which is good, because you won't have to wait for it to dry up a little before it gives you the consistency you want.
Your normal mascara smell.
-Very accessible. Literally in every makeup aisle I believe
-Gives you volume
-Comes off soooooo easily
This was one of my first mascaras and it's something I'll always go back to. I think that there's a great distinction between high and low end makeup, but that would exclude mascaras. Honestly if you use the proper techniques that work best for you, you can easily replicate the same volume as Benefit's They're Real. However what separates that from this is its staying power. (Yes I'm aware of the waterproof formula, but honestly I believe that all mascaras should be waterproof!) You literally can't cry in this mascara or get any water near your lashes because believe me it will come off. Also for those who love to pack on the mascara, you're gonna have to watch out for this one as it does have flaking. However I love love love the volume it gives me WITHOUT a lash curler. That's what keeps me coming back for more! If you're a big fan of high end mascaras, this would still be a great backup mascara.
This is one of my first mascaras, and I love it. I have short and straight Asian lashes, and this did a great job lengthening my lashes. Whenever I used it, I could see that my lashes were more lengthened and volumized. However, it gets clumpy if you add on more coats. I use one to two coats, and sometimes need to use a brush to untangle them. It smudges only a little, has long wear time, and is easily removed with waterproof remover. I even fell asleep with this once and the next morning it was completely gone with zero smudging. My lashes are still healthy. I recommend this mascara.
This was my first mascara so I look back on it fondly... Never clumped and gave me volume like no other. I got this as a birthday present so I don't know how much it was but maybelline usually retails for 6-8 cdn so that's pretty good! I got a little Smudgey with this stuff and it dried out before I could finish the bottle but I loved this mascara... It started my mascara junkie adventure.
This product is okay... I have short little asian lashes that need a strong hold to hold the curl after curling which this does, but this product is very hard to do multiple coats on and tends to clump a little after the first coat.... It is good at the lengthening part and the volumizing, but makes you lashes very stiff and is not very natural looking so if you are looking for a natural mascara, you should probably stay away... I got this product in black(k501) to match my lashes... It's okay but I prefer non drugstore mascaras in general so maybe I'll stick to those from now on
Just thought I would add, the mascara is actually waterproof which is nice
I did not care for this mascara, gave no volume at all, I saw barely any difference...Jordana's Best Lash extreme is wayyy better and $3.00 lol
This is hands down the best mascara I have ever used. I have used anywhere from MAC to Wet N' Wild, and this one wears the crown! It is such a great product I don't even know where to start! Well, the packaging is freaking adorable yellow and purple (holy cuteness!). The brush is what I love so much about this mascara, it is full and fluffy, but not so much that you feel like you are applying mascara with a round brush. The consistency is absolutely perfection, not to thin, not to thick, perfect. One coat looks great for everyday wear, two coats looks sultry, and three coats is bombshell lashes, almost false lash looking. This product is well worth the purchase, you will not be disappointed!
THIS IS THE BEST MASCARA! Any of the colossal lash mascaras have an amazing formula. I personally think its the collagen that makes this product so effective! I love love love it!!!!
I loved this mascara when I first got it, it was (and still is) very very black and makes my lashes look really dramatic, which is what I'm looking for, but as it dries up a little more, it working less well, but that is to be expected.
Hands down, this is one of the best drugstore mascaras.
PROS: great volume and length, very natural looking, easy and quick to apply, nice applicator, and great price.
CONS: when I first put it on it has a very strong smell and by the end of the day I always have mascara "crumbs" under my eyes.
Overall, I would definitely buy this again.
