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!

This mascara was a special mascara because of the application method with its wand. That's what attracted me to purchase and it took a lot of practise to get it straight on. But this mascara will smudged on me after half the day. It's special but if it smudges, it is a definite no-no for me in my books. I'll try the waterproof version because maybe it will stand more to being smudge-proof than the original version. If you get this, be prepared to get it wrong the first few times of application. Don't get frustrated and just be patient because it takes practise. Practise makes perfect!

This bad boy wasn't made for good girls who like subtle, conservative lashes. If the dominatrix/S&M-looking spike ball wand didn't scare you away already, I'm assuming you're looking for the exaggerated, dramatic, sultry lashes.

First, let's talk about the cons and why I only gave it 3 stars. For one thing, this is effing expensive. 30 smacks for a small tube of mascara that is going to start drying in about two weeks. L'Oreal's Telescopic mascara retails for about $10. Secondly, it's weird. Look at it. Givenchy's Phenom Eyes and L'Oreal's Telescopic are currently the only ball wand mascaras on the market. After using regular long wands for so long, it'll take you a while to get used to it and figure out how to twist your hand this way and that. And finally, it does clump. You must take your time in brushing this mascara out. The results are really dependent on your technique. Oh yeah, and be careful not to gauge your eyeball out.

Ball wands are best for coating lashes individually and really getting the tiny lashes. Because they are smaller and have bristles that are better spaced out and facing all directions, you can brush out the lashes to what angle you prefer. The difference between L'Oreal Telescopic and Givenchy is that Givenchy's brush is shorter and hard. L'Oreal's is long and flexible. Also, L'Oreal's bristles on the ball appear to be arranged more in a vertical row whereas Givenchy's are facing all directions. This allows Givenchy's to give a better 360 effect. The way I apply it is I dab the mascara formula on and then go back and brush through it. I do this about 5-7 times to really get the fat lashes when I'm going out at night. If you really take your time (and I mean really must take your time), you can separate the lashes and cash nearly every tiny lash in between for a super Playboy like fake lash look. People always ask me if I have fake lashes on when I wear this.

If you're hesitant about trying it, I suggest you get L'Oreal's first to see how well you work with ball wands. If you like that, then invest in Givenchy. I wasn't kidding when I said you need to take your time. It's a high maintenance mascara. But if you have the balls to master it (pun intended), you'll find that you can't go back to regular wands ever again.
