This is my HG mascara. It makes my lashes look thicker and longer. The black is extremely dark (it looks a little gray on the wand but is amazing on the lashes), and the texture is creamy and rich. It holds a curl well (I don't notice any curl increase due to the mascara itself, but it doesn't make the curl fall out of my lashes), and it doesn't clump so you can put two or three layers on -- I don't find that I need to, however.

The main reason I got this mascara was for the ball wand, and while the mascara is amazing, the ball wand is really what makes this product the best mascara I've ever tried. I have very, very long blonde eyelashes and the applicator allows me to reach each and every lash. With each of my lashes coated individually, including the little ones in the inner and outer corners, the effect is amazing -- my lashes look long, thick, and very dark, and my eyes seem bigger and brighter.

It's a pricey mascara, however, so if you want to test a cheaper option, try the L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion or purchase a set of disposable ball wand mascara applicators (search Amazon for "GETI BEAUTY Disposable Sphere Shaped Head Mascara Wands"). The latter you could combine with your current favorite mascara and have the best of both worlds! :)

At first I didn't feel so rave about this mascara cause I find the brush is really awkward but then I gave try.I chose the eyefly first but the clerk put on this mascara first to see how wonderful this mascara will work on my eyelashes.Hmmm.I was so rave afterwards cause it made my lashes went dramatic.but then I felt its too much.I need an everyday use mascara that volumnize my lashes rather than separate it.BUT I then purchased this one due to the effect I got cs eyefly didn't impress me much,only natural finish look which I can afford with cheaper mascara than that eyefly.The clerk said mine is the waterproof version but then I realized from the box that it is the original confusing I can't distinguish mine.After first time using,hmmm,I feel like damn,its a holy grail mascara.hell dramatic yet nice.I don't even feel doubt when I wear it for daily using.I know its pricey and in my country it costs approx. 38 dollars,so that's why I'm so regret that I didn't purchase it when I went to sephora in US and duty free in Qatar cs there is the combo version in which you can get two tubes in fraction price.
The bristle is nice but I can't do my zigzag technique to volumnize and lengthen my lashes with it BUT hey,it is perfectly nice to separate and volumnize without that trick,so I think for beginner,it's easy to apply.My lashes go falsies and it makes my eyes look so POP.
Thing that i hate from this mascara is the color that is smearing on my lower eyelids but it wont be appeared too much if u wear full coverage make up.for daily sheer make up, yes it may appear.
but still, this is a great mascara and it has very intense black color.

This is a must have in every womans collection... Do you ever get tired of trying to get the outer/inner lashes and failing miserably because you cant seem to do it without getting mascara everywhere? This mascara was made for those of us who have those issues. This mascara makes getting EVERY lash a breeze. Dont be intimidated by the looks and shape of the brush... it works like a dream. Its a bit pricey, but i always have this mascara in my bag- emphasis on the ALWAYS. Not to meantion there is a faint but lovely smell to the actual liquid, and the consistency is perfect... it was a bit too thin for me at first, but after taking the wand out- i would blow on it for a few seconds and then apply. If you like a more thin mascara, then skip the step and apple right away. Personally, with all my experience in makeup, I find it much easier to minipulate the lashes with a thicker consistency mascara, but whatever is easier for you. I do however like that the mascara is thinned out from the beggening, because as you pump the wand in and out, it will automatically thicken it due to the air... this adds a little time to the shelf life of this spicific mascara, which is always a bonus. <3 Ladies, this is a must try... if you want to test it before spending the money- stop by Nordstroms or Bloomingdales and test it out first, you will be happy you did! <3

Im in love!!! this has to be the best mascara ive ever used - and at only 20 well worth it! Suprisingly the spiky ball shaped wond is very easy to use, and doesnt take long to achieve long, luscious lashes! you can do anything really with this mascara - from long dramatic, sultry lashes to natural looking lashes. The packaging is beautiful and the product itself is lasting me a long time. Will definitely re-purchase!

This is the best mascara anywhere. Makeup artists that I know swear by it and I agree. It's great for my eyelashes which are longish and go every which way, so the ball top really helps in separating the lashes.

If you get a smudge, that's 'cause, once in a while, you need to spot it on a kleenex and you're good to go.

This, and my foundation are the two products I don't mind paying for. Perfection, for me.

Love this mascara! At first it`s tricky to apply, but after I used to it I can not imagine to use nothing else. Mascara last really well, separates & cover every single lush & dont leave the marks on eyelids. My favourite mascara of all times!

This is my go-to mascara in terms of giving me volume and length while also giving me the ability to precisely target certain areas of my lashes. Love the formula as well!

Love this mascara! Although I am very dedicated to my Zoom lash, I absolutely love this mascara because of the packaging. This is such a fantastic wand that gets your lashes exactly how you want them- separated, lengthened, just perfect. I also really love the brown tone- not too red, and just black enough. I also recommend the water proof version- Easy to remove, but it really does stay on! Love it, big fan.

I am a lancome mascara guurl but i heard the rave reviews on givenchy phenomen'eyes and thought i'd switch it up and give it a try. the brush is cool and surprisingly super easy to use! unfortunately, I have noticed a bit of smudging, im hoping the reason is because it takes awhile to dry. It does give a brillant black though!! overall i like it, but lancome is still my hg. I don't think i'll be repurchasing.

I really liked this product! Super innovative, but I only gave it four out of five because it is difficult to get used to the wand and the formula is a tad wet for my taste. It is just as black on your lashes as it is in the bottle and the wand allows you to get even your smallest lashes! I personally like wearing it over a volumizing mascara for a little extra length. But it is really beautiful and elegant on its own if you take the time to apply it carefully!
