This product did nothing for my lashes. It promises volume and length but it gives nothing but shiny clumpy lashes. Would not repurchase.

I received this mascara in a Sephora set. I have the mini version and the packaging is really cute with the little hearts, but this mascara just didn't work me. It didn't give me any volume or really much of anything.

I love Josie Maran products but not this mascara.. No volume and lots of clumps!!!
The only point in its favor is that its a very intense black and i like the healthier ingrediants! I couldnt throw it away so I use it on my bottom lashes...

This mascara did absolutely nothing for my lashes. It did not volumize or lengthen. The only thing this mascara did was make my lashes look slightly fuller and darker. I would not recommend this mascara if you are wanting dramatic results. The only way i would recommend this mascara is if you are looking for a 'natural' mascara that gives back. Apparently the GOGO means get one give one, and they donate money to a charity for every mascara that is sold.

I'm sorry. I really wanted to like this mascara. But I just don't. The problem? It doesn't do anything. Despite the super cute packaging and promising, thick brush. It does nothing. Let me explain.
When you comb the wand through your lashes, nothing happens. Nothing builds. I rememeber one day I was late for school, and this was the mascara I threw in my bag. I left class a little later to go to the bathroom to finish reapplying my makeup. I was in the bathroom for 20 minutes trying to make this mascara do something.
It adds a slight color, but really takes forever to build up. I see a tiny bit of volume, barely any length, and the smallest amount of color. This is ridiculous. Maybe I got a bad tube? But this was awful. I don't know how good the formula is, because in all honesty, the wand just doesn't apply it well to the lashes. I'll use it till it's gone, but not on days when I want my lashes to look even remotely did. Translation- my next stay at home day.

This mascara gives a very natural effect though you can't really layer it. It doesn't clump or anything it just doesn't add anything extra. It has a softer black finish than other mascaras removes easily, and doesn't seem to kill my lashes. The brush is a little difficult to maneuver and I think mine dried out a little to quick. I don't think I would go out of my way to buy a full size of this again since I've found some I like a bit better, but I wouldn't object to getting it in a value box. Definitely a natural looking usable mascara with no major flaws I just have others that I favor more.

I love this mascara! I know some reviewers didn't like the brush, but I'm a fan of big brushes, I find them easier to work with and are better for getting fluffy, volumized eyelashes! It gives a really natural look for day time, but can be layered for a more dramatic look at night. I love the packaging too, gorgeous. Josie Maran, I <3 you. HG mascara for me!!

Ahh...my first mascara...I still remember nšively walking into sephora wide-eyed when I was 13 with my friend, being whisked into the path of a saleswoman with an eye for newbies. She recommended this one, and I didn't kno anything about makeup then. All I knew was my mom had told me you 'pay for quality', so I tried not to flinch too much when I threw down the $20. Now, a couple of years later, i see this super old, crusty mascara in the back of my bathroom cupboards. Its too old for anything, but I still remember How it worked:
It's expensive even now ($20+), however it's for a good cause. For every mascara you buy, a mascara will be donated to a cancer patient or survivor. I believe its after a certain amount of mascaras have been donated, then ur money simply goes to an organisation (city of hope? I'm really not sure, I'm sorry for sounding ignorant.) so it's for a good cause, it's cruelty free, it has argan oil, it's natural. The brush is a huge bristle one, which I LOVE and then the formula...It's a nice black color, and looks SUPER natural. It really only tinted my eyelashes black, and it flakes. Plus, even though I wa too inept for a lash curler back then, this mascara didn't give me any curl. No length, no volume...:I don't see why pay $20 to look like u have dark lashes. I guess this old mascara is finally going into the trash.

This is a good mascara, especially for a natural look, but it doesn't stay on well enough for me. I don't like the big brush, on the short wand, but I could live with that.
However, I have *extremely* oily skin, and really need a "tubing" mascara, which this one isn't. Also, I wear contacts, so I blink a lot, and my eyes are watery at times.
This mascara goes on smoothly, without clumping, separates well, is nice and black, and builds a little length and volume.However, it starts breaking down fairly readily, and that's a deal-breaker, for me. For the price, $22, I prefer to go for a more durable tubing mascara, like Cargo or Blinc.
I *do* love that Josie Maran is a cruelty-free company, and if this mascara stayed on better, it would be a real contender, for me.

This was just OK on lengthening and thickening. A little more edge for an everyday mascara. It builds nicely. Hard to seperate lashes w/ the brush once they stick together though.

I got this in a small sample size from Sephora, and I think the packaging is so cute. But, that's kind of all I like about it. I typically use Lancome mascaras (Definicils and Hypnose), and the difference is night and day. If you like a very natural look and don't like the look of a lot of mascara, then you'll love this. The only time I ever really wear it now is to the gym on early mornings, and I just swipe it a few times so that I can have a little omething on my lashes.

Now dont get me wrong this product is fine but it isn't for me. When I buy mascara I'm looking for length, volume, definition and a good pigmentation. Now I know that's a lot to ask. This mascara, for me, only defines my lashes and makes them slightly darker. It's great to use if you are looking to do a very natural makeup look but if you like your lashes to have a little more ummph this is not for you. I do use this on days where I barely wear any makeup and just want to throw on some mascara but otherwise I never use it because it just doesn't cut it for me.

I got a sample of this mascara in Sephora's Holiday LashStash Gift Set. I was initially drawn to this mascara because of the cure packaging and how the marketing claims it uses argan oil in the mascara to moisturize your lashes. The britles on the brush are large but the quality of the mascara is phenominal. The formula was lightweight enough to not weight down my lashes by the end of the day and suprisingly didn't clump during application. This mascara is more expensive but I would reccommend giving it a try!

I'm on my third tube now, and I think it's because a certain family member gives me a Sephora gift card each Christmas, and I want to spend it on an earth-friendly product I know I'll use (not to mention the Give One Get One campaign, which is awesome). Yes, the brush is chunky. Yes, the formula is gunky. It's so awkward and yucky in its application that I always have the lash comb ready to fix things afterwards. But--lo and behold--once applied and dried--surprise!--my lashes look really good. Nice thick, even fringe. No lash comb necessary. One of my secrets of application is using only the tip of the brush. This helps.

I received this in a multi-pack of Josie Maran products. It is ok, but not great. No clumps or flaking. Does not bother my contacts. I just don't like it nearly as well as my favorite mascara.

I was disappointed in this mascara. It gives a lightly clumpy look, almost grainy, if you know what I mean. The brush is too fat and too short for my lashes. The brush delivers too much product. All around, this was a major FAIL. I used it for a week, but couldn't take it anymore and chucked it. Too bad too, as I love all things Argan and really like the Josie Maran brand.

Im completly neutral on this mascara. No clumps, flakes or smudging. There just wasn't anything good about it. It didn't lengthen or volumize. It looked completely natural. If thats the look your going for than this is a good buy

I got this with a gift at Sephora and was interested to try it out and see how it did. I should never have bothered. I like a fairly natural look and it wasn't even good for that, even though I used my beloved Diorshow Maximizer which makes any mascara better I think. This was still a dud. It clumped and I didn't get any seperation, length, and definitely none of the volume that I desperately need. The Maybelline volume express in my makeup bag is 10 times the mascara for a quarter of the price of this completely useless product. This line in general tends to be a lot of hype for a bunch of products that are hugely overpriced from the beginning, including the argan oil itself. Half of an ounce of argan oil at Sephora is 14 dollars and I can get a full oz of exactly the same product from Garden of wisdom for 8 dollars and 20 cents, and don't even get me started on the fact that Josie Maran charges 48 dollars for 1.7 ozs of Argan oil and I again can get 8 ozs of the same product- also at Garden of Wisdom- for 60 dollars and 50 cents. Argan oil is a nice oil and there are actually a couple of products in this line that I like, but these kinds of prices are highway robbery!

Got a sample size as part of my 500 point VIB perk at Sephora...really, really wanted to like it. Cute packaging and it's nice that they donate a tube to a breast cancer patient for each one sold. The brush is deceptively fluffy...I feel like it should cover better than it does. Formula is so-so...gives lashes a little oomph but not a whole lot of definition. Good for the girls who want a 'natural' kind of look, but if you want more volume/definition/curling hold, try something different. Keeps lashes feeling soft and comes off easily at night. Just not my favorite.

I had picked up a Josie Maran gift set at sephora, and a small tube of this mascara was included. I found that I really didn't use it much as it is a very natural looking mascara and that's not what I'm looking for. However I did eventually go back to it as it makes a good lower lash mascara (doesn't clump, looks natural). A word of warning: this mascara will run like crazy at the merest hint of moisture. Also, fades off the ends of lashes. Within a short time
