This mascara lengthens really well, but lacks a little in volumizing. It doesn't really hold a curl either. I won't be repurchasing as I have found other mascaras that do all three!

I hate this mascara. It's so wet, that it can't be built up unless you wait for each coat to dry. But personally, I don't have that kind of patience. If you don't wait for it to dry, they clump and don't lengthen, if you wait for it to dry you end up with crispy lashes (brittle lashes that are full of product.) overall, not what I was looking for at all.

This is my go-to mascara. I used it for almost two years because it is so reliable! Its easy to put on and take off, it makes my lashes voluminous and lasts all day. I had a bit of trouble trying to separate the lashes sometimes but it's very manageable. Definitely repurchase.

The is one of the mascaras I got during my search for replacing the discontinued Shu Uemura Basic. Too much oomp compares to Shu so not what I want. This is similar to NYC skyrise lengthening ( NYC is cheaper but wetter). I am using lash discovery from maybelline right now, which has less oomp compares to this ( but still too much when compares to shu )

I bought this during a sale at priceline (in australia) just to try out different mascaras. The Define a lash unfortunately didn't work. It melted under my eyes, it makes my nicely curled lashed drop, didn't really lengthen, maybe little bit of thickness to the lashes because of the clumps…. a little sad here :(

One of my very first mascara's that i used and it did the job! It definitely "defined my lashes" by lengthening and darkening :)

I purchased this mascara on a whim; I'd see it before,and it's definitely not a new kid on the mascara block. As my favorite mascara (Covergirl LashBlast Length Water Resistant) gets harder to find here in Australia, I've been on the hunt for a replacement to ease the impending devastation when I can no longer get it.

My mascara requirements are probably a little different to most; I'm not really interested in volume (meh), but I want length (definitely), natural looking separation/definintion (yes please) without having lashes that feel crunchy, or mascara that pulls out half my eyelashes trying to get it off. Sometimes I go for Waterproof, but after a slew of really nasty crunchy WP experiments lately (Maybelline Illegal Length, I'm looking at you), I decided to play it safe.

So, I put this on my peepers yesterday morning. Pleasantly surprised. Length? Check. Definition? Check. Non-crunchy? Check. Is it as good at giving me what I want from the Covergirl Lashblast? Almost. The only thing that holds back my opinion is a slight tendency for lashes to stick together. Not quite clumping; there's no obvious globs of mascara, but just a little less separation than I'd like. It could be operator error; I've since read a review on MUA that recommends not zigzaging the mascara, so I'll give that a go tomorrow and see if that works better. It could also be that, given the formula is quite wet, I just need to be more careful until it dries. Also, perhaps when the tube dries out a little, this problem might resolve. However, one unexpected bonus was a surprising amount of curl. A who doesn't love a bit of curl?!

Overall, I'd say that discovering this mascara was a happy accident. Does it topple my long term love affair with CG LashBlast Length? Not quite. But it deserves an honourable mention. Will you love it too? If you're after natural length and definition, and don't mind a wet formula, you might want to girl it a whirl. Who knows? You might find yourself a new HG. However, if you're a false-lash-loving, dramatic-volume kinda girl, probably best give this one a miss... Leave it for me so I have something to cling to once my HG finally becomes impossible to buy.
