This product really does not do what it claims to. It does not curl lashes or hold curl at all. It is just a basic, below average quality mascara, for an above average price.

Okay, so I got a sample of this from sephora at once point in time, and decided to try it out, since I'm on the hunt for a new mascara. I love the brush, it eliminates any and all clumps, however, I feel that the formula actually weighs my lashes down. Which counteracts the curling effect this claims to have.
However I've found a combo that works for me. I apply this mascara, then apply cover girl lash blast on over it (my current mascara I'm loving) This gives me more volume and helps 'lift' my lashes that the Stila had weighed down.
As for wear, I have no problems with this flaking or smudging through the day. It stays pretty put, and I like that! Don't have any problems with removing it either, I don't have to assault my eyelashes to get it off.
In the end, I wouldn't spend the money to buy a full size of this. I'll use my mini up, but wouldn't splurge on a mascara that needs help from another mascara.
*For reference, I normally do NOT curl my lashes every day. Mine are naturally quite long, so I don't bother curling them*

To be fair, I got this as part of the Sephora random mascara box (or something like that) for my birthday, so I didn't pay for it and don't feel guilty for throwing it away.
This mascara gives me one giant eyelash in the middle. It's pretty "goopy" and wet. I usually get it all over my lid. Not a very elegant application of this formula even with the innovative brush. I'm probably going to chuck it.

I really like this mascara, which is why I'm a little surprised by all the negativity surrounding this product. First off, I adore the shape of the wand. It's perfect for getting into the corners of your eyes and great for coating your bottom lashes without smudging. (something mascaras with bigger wands are infamous for) I think this mascara gives a really pretty, doe eyes, curly look that provides length and seperation. There's also some decent volume. This won't make you have huge, full lush lashes and won't give you that false lash effect, but it gives a gorgeous, feminine, doll eyelash look that's flattering. The formula is on the wetter side, which really helps to sculpt and coat your lashes.

I also got this in last year's Sephora Lash Stash. My tube is amazingly still too wet to use easily, and the product will come out in big blobs if I'm not super careful when applying. I have been using it with my other, drier mascaras to use it up. I don't get a lot of curl, length or volume with this, just very black coated lashes. Smudging and fallout is about average. I do like the smaller brush though. I bent it at an angle for better application.

This is probably the worst mascara I have ever owned! This does not add any length or volume to my lashes, and it barely even darkens my blonde lashes! It does not curl my lashes as advertised by Stila. The worst thing about this mascara is the staying power. At the end of the day, I found that the mascara has smudged below and above my eyes. I will definitely not be repurchasing this mascara again!! The only good feature is the small brush which was ideal for applying mascara to my lower lashes. However, as I just mentioned this mascara cannot be applied to lower lashes because it leaves black marks.

I must be the only person who likes this mascara! I should preface my review by saying that I have naturally long, semi-curled lashes. The reason I can't get away with naked lashes is because they're really blonde, and you can hardly see them without mascara. I got a small tube of this free with a Sephora order, and I'm not sure I would pay full price for a regular tube. That being said though, I think it's pretty good mascara. Not the greatest, but certainly not the worst. I get no clumps or flakes and certainly no spider lashes. It doesn't smear or end up under my eyes. Is the impact major? No. Do I look like I'm wearing falsies? No. But personally, I can use this without curling my lashes first, and it holds well. It separates well, and gives me nice long, wispy lashes. Good for daytime.
Also, I like the small brush. Makes it easy to apply when in a rush.

I have lashes are naturaly curled so I can't say anything about this mascara's curling power. But I can definitely talk about its staying power.
This mascare smudges after 2 hours applying to my lashes. 2 hours of staying power is not acceptable to me even though I have oily eyelids.
It neither lengthens nor adds volume to my lashes. I have only used it a couple of times, but it will be trashed.
I usually only look for two things in a mascara
1. staying power
2. if it adds volume
And it does neither of these.

I didn't think this mascara was too bad. It separates my lashes really well and gives me some volume - but no length. However, this effect does not last the entire day (still searching for a mascara that does) and did irritate my eyes because of the flaking.

Got this as a gift included in the Sephora mascara sampler so I'm not as bitter as those who actually had to buy it lol. The brush is fantastic as it is tiny and reaches in all corners of my smaller Asian eyes. Not sure why it's labeled as a "curl memory" mascara as it doesn't hold in much curl as does any other regular mascara. The wand somehow magically separates my lashes to perfection and is great for building length. The formula however, is the worst I've seen to date. It runs quickly and transfers to your top and bottom lids like no other. I don't even bother reaching for this in the summer or on hot days. It takes forever for it to dry which sucks cause I like curling my lashes after mascara application. I'll use up the tube because I like how defined and separated my lashes look, but will not repurchase.

Keeping it short and sweet - o.k. if you like smearing and flaking. :( Love the brush, though. Wouldn't repurchase in a million years.

I got this as a sample from sephora and I am SO happy I did not pay for this. Really terrible. Flaked. Clumped. Not natural. Really did not lengthen or volumize. A little bit of curl, but it only lasted for a few minutes. I threw it out. I will not not this in full size.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
Not pleased with this mascara. While I like the idea of the thin brush on the wand, the product they combined it with just plain sucks. I normally don't have a problem with flakes, but this mascara is all over my face. It also rubs off way too easily, even for a non-waterproof mascara. Definitely will NOT bother buying again.

I got it as a sample in my order, but it is 'Stila' piece of crap.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Dry, Fair, Neutral Hair: Red, Straight, Medium Eyes: Green
As usually I have no clue about the curl power of things since I have natural curl but I think this mascara flat ironed my lashes and made them pin straight. The skinny wand really does nothing and it hard to control how much product goes on your lashes, you end up very uneven looking. No curl, false lash effect, or even natural look, pretty useless for a higher end cosmetic item.

Er, no. As mentioned elsewhere, this was a full-sized "bonus" in the latest iteration of the Sephora Lash Stash sampler. It is negligibly better than no mascara at all. Does not lengthen, thicken, curl, or do anything to lashes beyond a mild darkening. I will keep it on hand for two purposes: to use as a base coat for mascaras that actually do something, and to recycle the handy thin brush for detail work. Otherwise, rubbish.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
Forever Your Curl has no added benefits: lashes do not appear longer, thicker, more defined or curled. Most disappointing feature: runs like nobody's business. The brush is very small which along with the formula does not allow the mascara to thoroughly coat lashes.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Green
I recieved this product in Sephora's Holiday LashStash Gift Set. After trying this product for over a week, I found that the only good thing about this mascara is the tiny applicator wand that helps get every lash even in the corners of your eyes. The formula applied alright but wasn't pleased at all with how much the mascara smeared throughout the day even with primer and powder. This mascara might be good for a couple hours but don't waste your time buying this. Very disatisfied to look in the mirror to raccoon eyes.

Got this as part of the Lash Stash from Sephora. For a product that promises to curl lashes, I must say that I saw no difference in curl following application. The brush was fine, and application was not clumpy. I'm very disappointed to say that the product flaked off my lashes fairly quickly and left smudges under my eyes. I would not repurchase and am likely to throw away the one I have.

I generally like Stila products, but this wasn't much cop, I'm afraid. The brush is good - small, neat & flexible, so it does help to get to the lash-base and very corner lashes.
After one coat, my lashes didnt curl at all. There was little build-up of volume and lashes were very 'wet'.
Left lashes to dry off a bit, then applied a second coat. again, not much curl. A little more length & volume though. My lashes were still quite wet and has started to become spikey.
Didnt bother with another coat - used a clean brush to comb lashes through and left to dry.
By the end of the working day, the ,ascara had smudged under and anove my lashes. I found it difficult to remove and there was further smudging the next morning!
Standard, fairly plain packaging, and with a £14 price tag, I expected better.
Sorry Stila, not good.
