By itself this is a pretty "meh" mascara. It doesn't volumize as much as it lengthens and it gets clumpy if you try to build with it. I tried pairing this with The Falsies Volum Express though and all I can say is WOW it's really like I've got false lashes! My lashes are so long and thick they look unnatural. And you CAN build with this mascara, just make sure to comb it well afterwards to get the clumps out and don't build as much with it as you would a regular mascara.
No matter how hard I tried to like this product I couldn't because it was CRAPOLA!!! It flaked, It had clumps like no other, and when I would apply it my lashes all of the sudden felt like i just applied glue, Um.....Ew. Usually I'm all for L'Oreal on mascara but they dropped the ball on this one. I'll use one of my others it broke my heart to throw this product away but I tried it and obviously by my rating it was kicked out of my make up bag!
This mascara is awful. When u take it out of the wand, u can clearly see clumps of mascara so imagine what it looks like on ur lashes! It is terrible... Lots and lots of clumps. Staying power is minimal. I love the gold packaging as it makes it look expensive but the quality inside the tube is beyond expectations... Negatively. I'm throwing this in the trash.
Been using this for some time now, can't say that I love it. Tends to be a little clumpy. I do like it much better than the Covergirl Lash Blash Fusion (it stinks). Still trying to find a good drugstore product.
Probably the worst mascara I've ever tried. I have short stick straight lashes, and this mascara did not hold my curl. Also I prefer natural looking mascaras that give lots of length and a little volume, this just gave me clumps. Sure it lengthens and volumizes and it might work for you if you are going for lots of drama and clumpy volume on your lashes, but I wouldn't recommend it.
And I was so excited to try this because I loved my imju fiberwig mascara, but maybe western brands haven't quite mastered the fiber mascara yet...=(
I only bought this product because i needed a new one asap, and it was bogo 50% off. I'm glad because these make my lashes look thick and long! I bought a regular and a waterproof one. The waterproof is awesome, stays put and doesnt run unlike other brands that claim waterproof. I def recommend this product for a cheaper mascara.
I really like this mascara and have been using it exclusively for about 3 months now. It gives great volume and lengthens pretty well. I have been through a lot of DS mascara's and this is the best Ive found! I have a problem with flaking and this mascara does not flake! You do have to make sure there is not too much product on the wand or you will end up with clumpy eyelashes. I only have to apply one coat to get long voluminous lashes!
This was just an okay mascara. I probably won't repurchase this again.
Makes lashes look thicker due to fibers and thicker, drier formula.
Not too bad with clumping.
Flakes, leaving residue under eye or in eye.
Lash brush is tapered, leaving one end bulky and I found it to be in the way and useless.
Does not lengthen and weighs lashes down.
Formula gets all around the outside of the tube for some reason, it squeezes out and clumps all around the opening.
Formula seems to dry out too fast.
I thought this mascara would be amazing on my already long and dark lashes, but I was disappointed. It's not a terrible product, it's just drier and more clumpy than I'd like. It didn't take much product before my lashes looked like they'd been caked with layers and layers of mascara. It didn't work for me, but my mom and sister love it, so I can't say it's awful, just not for me. Won't be repurchasing.
This is a wetter mascara than I'm used to. Combined with the messy brush, there is potential for goopiness. Other than that, I really liked it. A better brush would have made this a five. I liked that the color was actually black. A little of this product goes a long way, for daytime the lightest coat is sufficient. My lashes did look extra-long and there wasn't any flaking or smudging until I had been wearing it for more than 14 hours. Another thing I love about this mascara is that it actually washed off clean when I tried to remove it. I'd probably buy it again but by time I need a new one, I'm sure some new mascara that I want to try will be out.
