Such a pretty purple tube! I love the brush! I might keep it after and use it for all my mascaras! It really doesn't clump and the bristles(they're not really bristles either) are so neat and in line.
I liked the mascara too. I chose it in very black (because I have naturally black hair) and it was actually blacker and more defined. Which I really liked because I haven't seen it in any of the blacks I've bought before. It is on the thin side, but it did define my lashes. Though not very thickening or lengthening. I would still buy again though. I got this for $7CAD. For me, this did not smudge or flake all day and it was very soft to the touch. Which was a surprise because other mascaras had a crunchy feel.
I HATE this mascara! I normally only write reviews on products that I really like, but I had so many problems with this product that I had to let people know. I had heard good things, so I decided to give it a try. It went on okay--nothing special--and I still had to comb it with a lash comb to get out clumps. Mind you, this was after one coat. My carefully done, Shu curl wilted immediately. Then it started flaking within thirty minutes and tiny mascara bits got all over my face and into my (sensitive) eyes. Also, the plastic brush actually hurt my lashes and tugged on them hard enough to cause pain. This product is terrible, don't be fooled by the hype over their stupid plastic brush.
Never been a fan of Cover Girl but the ads and reviews made me curious so I picked up a tube. Very disappointed. Nothing special about the brush because this did not lengthen or define my lashes. I almost never have flaking with mascara but sure enough little black flakes on my cheeks with this crap. I'm tossing my tube and will never purchase again.
On the Cover Girl website they even promote the fact that with
this new LashExact brush you will have more defined lashes. Mine ended up looking like the spidery before picture. This is the WORST mascara I have ever tried in my 30 plus years of wearing makeup! I even used a lash curler (which always makes my lashes extra huge) and that did squat! I work with a lot of men...and 3 of them that day said...are you not feeling well?...your eyes look small and tired...you look different! Needless to say I tossed out the tube as soon as I got home. Their claims of the "long lash look" should be removed from the website...and replaced with small stubby non-defined lashes!
I adore this product. I was given it as a freebie at a drug store while they were doing some kind of promotion, so I thought that it would be kinda crappy. Boy was I wrong!
I have tried every other reasonably priced mascara on the market, and some more expensive ones like dior show, but this is by far the best for me.
The brush allows me to get to the tiny lashes at the inner corners of my eyes and it doesnt ever clump. Even after several coats, no clumping.
My only gripe is that it takes a little while to dry, but that happens with 90% of mascaras anyway.
It has a very pretty natural look, so for nights on the town I apply 2 coats of this with one coat of benefit bad gal lash on my outer lashes, sometimes with a set of falsies.
This is now my HG mascara and I will be re-purchasing this again.
I'm blonde brown hair with blue green eyes that loves a natural make-up look. This brown color mascara stays on long, no flaking or irritation. Very impressed since I normally pay double for a mascara. I will recommend & purchase - and hope they come out with a deep violet shade ;-)
I don't really like this mascara. I don't know why but it clumps for me. It is almost impossible to apply more than 1 or 2 coats and look natural; and it flakes like hell!!! definetly not for contact wearers. the funny thing is that the brush is supposed to be the main attraction, but I'm not sure if the problem is the brush or the formula...maybe I just bought a bad tube. I think I'll probably give this ONLY ONE more chance because the tube is soooo cute!
this is replacing my hg aqua calorie 2000. this stuff really does not clump... and doesn't flake, even after a full 16 hour day
A very nice drugstore mascara! I have used about 3 tubes of this. I really love the brush, that has got to be the best part. One coat of this gives you a really natural look, which is great when you want that. But I do like dramatic lashes. If you want more dramatic lashes, you have to apply about 3-4 coats. But overall, I really do like this!
Very interesting mascara. Worth buying just to experience the brush. I feel like it's the exact same formula as the infamous 'Great Lash' (slippery and runny) but, the brush allows you to put on multiple coats without clumping/caking. It seems it would be excellent for someone with thick but short lashes, but as someone with long but sparse lashes, I need more thickening, and so will go back to my all time favorite L'Oreal Voluminous. Oh, the other thing to note is that the brush can kind of hurt if you put it close to your lash line... so be careful!
