I can't believe this is even sold in stores. The color of the tube is nice but the plastic is the lowest quality mascara I've ever had. I could even tell when I was twisting it open. You know that pop sound when you take the wand out of the tube? That didn't happen with this mascara. Kind of a red flag. Then the product was SO clumped on the bristles that you couldn't even see them. I had to wipe it off but then when I tried again it was so uneven and weird looking. Then I tried putting it on. It wouldn't even grip to my lashes and gave that unsmooth look. I gave up before I even got to the amount I would put on normally because it was just not worth it. My lashes feel very flexible though, although I barely have any on. This is probably the worst mascara you can buy.

I was excited to try this mascara and it was the first Flower Beauty product that I've tried. The brush is a little big for my small, hooded, droopy eyes, but I could look past that and try to work with it. But the formula was flaky on me. It might not be on someone else and it may just be my eyes, but I noticed those irritating little flakes under my eyes and on my cheek bones an hour or so after applying. I don't hate this product, but when I run out, I will be trying something else.

Love the green tube...this caught my eye at Walmart so I picked it up as soon as I noticed they sold it BROWN...which many mascara's don't offer. Now in all honestly I have many long eyelashes....but before you get jealous and want to poke my eyes out you should know they are blonde. I found myself having trouble getting this mascara to really cover the blondeness of my lashes.
Pro's : Adorable packaging, affordable, comes in brown and is very matte not glossy (which I think is great for day wear)
Con's: Tiny flaking under eyes, took more time than other mascara's to cover my blonde lashes....you have to put some elbow grease in it ladies!

I decided to try this one after I ran out of the Zoom-In, which was my go-to drugstore mascara.
I thought this one seemed really dry at first, based on the appearance on the brush, but it was actually perfectly moist. It didn't clump or flake, and it washed off very easily. I have really sensitive skin and eyes, so finding a mascara that isn't irritating is a miracle, but this one was pretty good and caused no irritation on its own. I think it did exacerbate irritation once, but that was my fault for putting it on.
-Reasonable price (but a little high for drug stores)
-No smudging or running after it dried
-Washes off easily
-Doesn't hold a curl well
-Even with 2-3 layers, very little volume

Just to correct my post below👇 you can't buy online from the FLOWER beauty website, but you can buy from Walmart.com :)

This mascara has a regular bristle/spoolie brush that works well to grab and coat every lash. You can build layers with this formula+brush combo without creating clumps or spider lashes. The formula is on the drier side and it does necessitate some building up to get a really nice effect.
Makes lashes look long and plentiful, but not especially thick. Pigmentation is fine, but nothing close to the deep glossy blacks of Maybelline. Eh for holding curl. Doesn't smear or flake off; lasts all day and washes off easily with soap and water.
Nice metallic green tube and reasonable price.
The reason I would not buy again is it irritated my skin. It made my eyelids slightly sore and swollen, so obviously, I discontinued use.

I wanted this to be my HG mascara! I've been searching high and low for a mascara that was animal friendly, affordable and didn't smudge. This mascara was affordable, went on perfectly, but by the end of day was all under my eyes. I am a no fuss kind of girl: I want to be able to apply my makeup in the morning and expect it to be there, where I left it, by the end of the day. Cover Girl mascaras are the only mascaras, which I can apply and they don't budge until I wash it off at the end of the night.

Love love love this mascara. It gives the Fokine of a super dry mascara but it is moist and doesn't flake! The packaging of the whole line looks bad in the store but it's so much better when you get it home! No more Lancôme! Flower beauty from now on when it comes to my lashes!

This mascara didn't take the cake for me. It's better than a lot of other mascaras on the market, but for what I look for in a mascara, it was a let down. I like my mascara to really build up the volume of my lashes and make them look thick and full, and this product failed miserably in that regard. My HG mascara is Maybelline's Volum' Express Colossal, and Lash Knockout cannot compare to the volume I get from that one. I also noticed that it seemed to start flaking off as soon as it dried, but that could be due to the amount I glopped on trying to get it to look good, as I didn't have consistent flaking throughout the day. I found that after a couple coats, it is basically impossible to build the product up any more. It kind of gets to a point where it just stops going on. This is good if you're trying to avoid it getting clumpy, but bad if you're TRYING to build it up.
That being said, however, there are several things I did quite like about this mascara. The formula is very smooth. It's not too wet and not too dry, and it's not sticky or clumpy - in fact, I would say that the smooth formula is this product's best aspect. I really tried to cake it on. I put many coats on when I do my mascara, and I did even more with this one because I was trying to get it to the level of volume that I prefer. While I didn't succeed in that respect, not once did it clump on me or begin to get sticky (though, as noted before, I did get some flaking). However, I also only used it for a few days, so I can't speak to how the formula holds up over time when the tube is no longer freshly opened. And it dried very well. It didn't feel wet for an excessive amount of time as some mascaras do, but it didn't dry so quickly that I had to rush as I was adding more coats. The product came out on the brush very well; it wasn't hanging off the end in globs or anything. The brush itself was a little underwhelming; it was not as thick as I expected it to be for a volumizing mascara, but then, I'm used to the Colossal brush, which is thicker than most brushes I think. The brush was good in that it did get every lash and it wasn't awkward to use or oddly shaped.
This mascara didn't do it for me in the volume department, but I did think that it looked very good as just a basic, everyday eyelash look, if you like to look more natural. It did darken my lashes and added a little bit of length and a just a little volume, enough that it opened up my eyes and made my lashes more noticeable, but not so much that it made me feel like my lashes really looked great. But if you don't like the thick, heavy eyelash look, this mascara is probably a good choice. Overall I can't say I will be rebuying this product as it just didn't tick enough boxes for me, but it wasn't horrible at all; I appreciate the quality of the formula and would definitely recommend it as a basic, everyday, natural-looking mascara.

Finding a great mascara that works for me has been my lifelong makeup mission. My lashes are not only wimpy, but they're also very fragile - any mascara that's even a little drying causes lash fallout. I've tried them all, from high to low end, obscure to best selling, and I've yet to find one that works well for me, much less be HG. But this one gets very close!
It's not too wet, so it holds a curl well and can be layered (just make sure you don't wait too long, since it sets quickly). It lasts all day without making me look like a raccoon, plus it doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes (I can't wear Lancome or Maybelline, for example). I usually don't look for overly dramatic mascaras because I find they weigh my wispy little lashes down and ultimately cause them to break off. For my taste, my lashes get enough volume from this, plus I also get a little length and really nice definition. All this for around $7 - such a steal!
I haven't tried the other Flower mascaras, but based on my experience with this one, I'm definitely game. I did get a bunch of other Flower items (reviews in progress), all which I find pretty impressive, given the quality and the price point. I swore off buying any animal-tested products years ago, and this line is cruelty free, another great bonus. Try the line if you haven't - their products are super cute and they work. :)
