Actually this is a really good mascara. It has a nice sized wand for grabbing little corner lashes, and stays most of the day. I have this issue with mascara smearing off onto my top lids, and it happens all the time. This one doesn't do that as much. The price is good too.

I like it, it's a good very day mascara. Doesn't separate as much as I'd like but no flaking, very black mascara. I do press my lashes up and blow on them to dry them after, if I don't they tend to fall. That might be fixed with a thin application of water proof mascara first.

this is my everyday holy grail mascara at the moment!

i will just clarify that i'm not someone that likes huge super defined and dark party lashes, so if that's what you're after, this mascara probably isn't your cup of tea (even though it claims to give you "flawless definition"). if you prefer more natural looking and subtle lashes, this mascara probably is your cup of tea!

i bought this at mecca maxima because it was the least expensive thing there tbh like i just don't understanding spending $50 on a mascara anyway it was the least expensive thing and i love love love the look and feel of the brush. my lashes are quite long but not very dense, and the brush is so fine that it gets in between each lash and coats it, and makes everything just look darker and fuller and generally better. if you've got really dense lashes, application might be a bit annoying for you.

i also love that it's not waterproof (i also don't understand waterproof mascara, i mean if you can't remove a substance from your body with water then you probably shouldn't put it on your body in the first place), and it has good staying powder. i haven't experienced any flaking or clumping like other people yet and i've been using it for about a month. sometimes i curl my lashes and sometimes i don't, and either way they look great with this mascara.

anyway, i use this product every day and i will keep on doing so unless i find something better!

- coats the individual lashes and makes everything look fuller and just nicer
- brush makes application just wonderful
- stays on all day but isn't waterproof
- pretty inexpensive for a higher end makeup brand

- if you have dense eyelashes, application might be tricky

Actually made my curl resistant lashes turn downward. No lie.

I really like this mascara! This is the first high end mascara I've ever bought and its amazing! I love that it's cruelty free, and it doesn't clump or smudge. It's 18 dollars, and for a high end mascara I think it's a reasonable price, considering the fact that most high end mascaras are over 20 dollars. I will definitely be repurchasing.

I loved the brush that this mascara comes with. It separates lashes and coats them evenly without clumping. It's very almost like rich (the mascara texture). I was in love w this product... For the first hour or two. After a hour or two it began to flake and lose the curl of my lashes. It lengthend at first then just clumped up, shortened and looked nasty. I didn't get this item at full retail price, but I think the original asking price is kind of ridiculous when drugstores mascara hold up better. I will say, it does come with a lot of product which is a plus.

I didn't like this mascara. I was at sephora and bought it impulsively without doing my research because it was 40% off and I was allured by its brush. I had been looking for a mascara to achieve a natural, everyday look for a while and its claims suited me. Sephora says "A mascara that defines, lengthens, and lifts lashes." It does nothing of these...the only difference I can see is that my lashes look a bit thicker since they are coated with product.At the end of the day it looks like I have no mascara on. Also it dried after almost a month. At least I didn't pay the full price for this. On the upside it doesn't run or smudge and I am definitely keeping the brush which is perfect!

Pretty good product. I have sparse, long lashes that grow straight down, so even when I curl them, if I apply a wet mascara, my lashes wilt. This formula is nice for my kind of lashes because it's a little dry, and lightweight. It hasn't smudged for me, and holds a curl well. It doesn't really add volume, but it draws attention to your lashes. I got the waterproof - might as well be anything-proof. I tried to get it off with makeup remover and facial cleanser and it's still on my lashes. I don't know if I like that. I guess it's a good product for the first time you sleep with someone - because it's not going anywhere.

I quite like this mascara. It doesn't add much in the way of volume but it noticeably lengthens my lashes without the irritation I experience from other mascaras. I lalso, love the way it makes my eyes look. Recommend to women with sensitive eyes.

Update: Whoa! Flake City! I don't know where I went wrong the next couple of times i wore this. I was left with flakes all around my eyes while I was enjoying dinner with my husband and daughter. I just knew I was looking good too, until I actually saw myself! In the bin this one goes.
