This is the best mascara I have found! Lately I've been on the search for something new that is less expensive but I've been disappointed with everything I've tried. This is the only mascara that makes my lashes stand out and it doesn't dot my eyelid by the end of the day which is important to me. I adore this mascara and gladly pay the $17 plus shipping.
It is an OK product but not what I would like - it is quite a thin mixture. It does strengthing a bit but does not build up on volume and the result is not as dramatic as it says. Effect: defined thin lashes, with a bit of smudge! I would rather go for Max Factor Calorie 2000.
Although this makes you lashes long, not extremley the best long, just longer I have found tat after completley applying the white and the black, the black is really flimsy. Your eyelashes do not look very black and it tends to wear away. I was dissapointed with this and I would not buy it again.
I don't know how this product keeps selling. It was a nightmare! Both 'ends' of the mascara clumped up on me and made a rats nest of goo at the base of my eyes. Never again!
I bought this while I was travelling in Europe, since it's cheaper over there. I liked it. I bought it in the raisin color. I consider this a very basic mascara even when you use the primer. I didn't get a "false lash illusion". But if you like a defined and separated look, then you might like this. I'm more into volume for my eyelashes. I do like the fact that Bourjois has a good color selection in mascaras. Other brands should learn from this.
I have long, thin eyelashes. I was hoping that the white end would help plump up and volumize my eyelashes, but it just made it clumpy. I'm also a contact lens user so whenever I blink I'd feel clumps against my eyelids.
The novelty of using this mascara when it came out several years ago here in the States was fun. The packaging is really cute, though it's very chunky so you can't carry it around in a little purse, unless you carry a tote.
The price I remember was ok, around $12, though I hear it's cheaper if you buy it in Paris since it's like the equivalent of Maybelline there.
I won't be buying it again, but it was one of the first mascaras I wore so I always get nostalgic when I see it at Sephora. ;)
This mascara does'nt do anything for curl or volume.
It does lengthen due to the white microfibers, (not suitable for contact lens wearers).
Tip you can always coat your lasher with the white coat, then wear your fav. mascara right after.
From what I understand, this was the first mascara that added the extra fibers to the ends of your lashes to make them look longer (then everyone copied: L'Oreal, Revlon, etc.). It did add some length to my wispy lashes, but after a few hours, the fibers got loose and fell into my eye, and it didn't feel very nice. It was quite irritating. I was bummed because I really wanted this to work ... oh well ...
I don't think this product is very good for asians with single eyelids like me. half my eyelash is already covered by my lid and it jets straight down/forward. This mascara does not help in the curling factor at all. Doesn't seem to thicken very much either...
I love this stuff. I have very long lashes, almost too long, I have a very hard time with mascaras. I am able to "manage" my lashes with this masacara, no clumping and great staying power.
