This mascara lasts all day and no raccoon eyes. It's not your va-va voom lash-extending mascara, but it's excellent for everyday normal wear. I hate flaky mascaras and that's usually the case for me with non-tubing ones. I would definitely recommend this one to someone who is looking for a basic, no-nonsense quality product.
Seems like there is nothing in the tube. Can't even see that I am wearing any mascara. Terrible, expensive product.
Do not buy!! I paid about 18 dollars for one tube and it is worthless.
This is what they call a "tube" mascara. The bristles are in "tubes" and what it really does is tint your lashes more than anything. I can't comment much about volume and length because I wear extensions. I still wanted a little oomph so someone suggested it to me and I saw the high ratings on MUA and ordered it on Sephora. When I called beauty advice experts at Sephora this lady told me it isn't your typical mascara. It does in fact color your lashes. This is probably why some of the previous reviewers didn't see too much length or volume. The mascara is hard to come off (maybe because of my extensions).but I had to slather on my eye makeup remover and it ruined my extensions. Easy conclusion: I will not repurchase this. I will actually return it because I don't want to use it again.
I have never once used a mascara that didn't leave me with raccoon eyes by noon at work. This stuff is a godsend for me. Does it give me dramatic lashes? No. does it give me pretty, work-appropriate lashes that last all day and I never have to worry about? hell yes. If your main priority is smudge proof, this stuff is for you, the length and volume are great as well but not a main priority for me.
I think this mascara is better if you have longer lashes.
I have long lashes and it gives a pretty, natural, eye opening look. Great for bottom lashes too and great for swimming/the beach. I get a lot of "wow you have really long eyelashes" when i wear this. It lengthens, but don't expect too much volume.
I hate this clumpy stuff! Although I'm a devotee to tube mascaras and appreciate the lack of smudging, this stuff hurts my eyes, clumps and gets sticky and provides minimal length or volume. The brush is a spare spiral one that isn't very effective.I tried cleaning excess product off the brush, but it still gave me spiderlegs. I don't have sensitive eyes and they ache with this. If you love the waterproof, but easy-to-remove qualities, try Clinique Lash Power and Stila Convertible Mascara. They're great on their own, but are even better with a primer like Lancome XXL.
Thankfully, I got a discount on this mascara. But I still paid too much because this mascara was a huge disappointment. Im an esthetician and Ive heard raves about this product from clients and other coworkers. So I decided to buy some since the spa I work at gives a good discount. I could not wait to wear this because I have some events to attend, and I love to play up my eyes. Well, I put it on today expecting an oooo la la look, instead my lashes pretty much looked the same. No glam factor here. It washes off well though, but thats not enough to earn it another lippie.
I will never buy this again. IMO maybelline XL with the double wands blows blinc out of the water.
Maybe I'm the oddball here, but I hate this mascara. To me, a mascara is supposed to add drama to your lashes, which includes lots of length and volume. This did none of that. It made my lashes appear thinner (if that's possible) and the formula is so freekin' wet that all I did was blink once and my lower lashes were instantly coated (which was not my intention). As for length it really didn't do much either. I guess it would be okay if you're looking for that "natural" look, but IMO if you're going to wear mascara make sure it's one that makes your lashes stand out, not disappear. Boo! >:[ continued >>
This sleek little mascara is perfect for summer. I can jump in a pool and it will still hold its curl and it won't give me a raccoon eye. I live in a humid climate, but this thing is amazing. It lengthens my eyelashes and it doesn't clump like most mascaras. Unfortunately, this doesn't give my lashes a voluminous look, but I have a lot of lashes anyways.
I love love love this mascara! It is awesome during the summer time when minimal beach make-up is most preferable. Dust on some bronzer... Frosty lip gloss and blinc mascara.. I was impressed when I swam all day and it didn't budge :) looked like a beach beauty all day. I highly recommend this mascara!
