I've been buying this since it first came out, and it's definitely one of my favorite mascaras. When it was first released, I was really intrigued by the ball-shaped wand, and it was getting rave reviews from so many magazines and beauty blogs that I just had to try it, despite the high price tag. It took a few uses to get used to the applicator, but once you get used to it it's not a pain to use at all. What this does that many mascaras don't is give me really fluttery looking lashes. Since this grabs each and every lash on the outer corner and inner corner, it really fans out my lashes and makes them look longer and fuller. It also holds a curl well and is a rich, creamy, pigmented black. I also love that this is totally clump-resistant and that it really separates every lash.
The only reason I can't give this a 5 is because I do have some smearing problems with this. I very rarely have problems with any mascara smudging or smearing, but I do with this one, especially on warmer days. When the bottle is brand new, this never smears under my eyes, but after a few months when this starts to dry out, I do find some black smudges under my eyes at the end of the day.
Regardless, I still love this stuff. It's a great everyday mascara for those of you who like a little drama in their lashes.

I've been looking for a mascara like this for a long time. This is my first review so I'll keep it to the point. The spiked ball-type applicator wand is pure genius and is the easiest I have ever used. It gives the ability to finely coat every eyelash no matter how short or fine, the brush finds ones that I didn't even know I had!

The actual formula for Givenchy's Phenomen' Eyes ( I bought black ) is lustrous and creamy and leaves the lashes glossy. It isn't a fibre formula, at least it doesn't feel like one and hence isn't irritating to my eyes as I find some lash extension mascaras. It is long lasting and easy to remove at the end of the day.

So to sum up, I haven't ever come across one better and will definitely be using this from now on and I shall try the brown too. Don't be frightened of the ball applicator, if it's easy enough for me to use I'm sure it will be a doddle for everyone else.

This is absolutly the BEST mascara EVER for me. I first tried it in France (EPCOT- disney florida). Sephora was there doing makeovers and I did one. The associate introduced this to me in Black Waterproof and I will not buy any other. I have to use almond, or coconut oil to remove, but that only smooths my skin, so no problem. It never flakes or smudges. I was always a Lancome mascara girl...but not anymore. I would recommend this to anyone.

I heard a lot about this product before actually trying one. The brush is really cool that every lash can be easily reached. However, it SMUDGE like CRAZY!!!!

I'm a bit iffy about this product.

I got it as a gift, but I don't think I would spend money on this because I honestly have no idea how to use it...

I use it on my lower lashes and ones near the corners that escape the usual mascara wand. It adds a nice effect, but I have no idea how to apply it over all of my lashes since it comes out looking bad. Eh.

I really wanted to love this product but it fails to deliver. It clumps easily, is difficult to remove and doesn't do anything spectacular to the eyelashes. Worst of all, it takes forever to apply with the wand type applicator. I have kept it because I have used it on some occasions to add extra body to the lashes on the outer corners, but even still, doesn't do anything great. There are much better mascaras for the price.

This Givenchy mascara is absolutely exceptional. You may have already seen this particular applicator or Ďwandí Ė itís spherical! Very unusual. Iím kind of Ďantií weird wands, in general, as I have a hard enough time of it just using the normal ones!

Somehow, the round tip of the wand (which looks like some kind of medieval weapon, a kind of spiked cannon ball!) manages to apply mascara precisely to each individual lash without taking ages and ages to build up volume. Thereís no clumping and I donít find that I get mascara all over my lids, either. I thought that the unusual applicator would take a lot of getting used to, but in fact I had developed quite a good technique by the time I was on my second go!

The mascara seems to be pretty hardwearing, though I do get some little specks falling into my eyes at the end of a long day. But itís the effect that I find so incredible Ė my lashes have never looked better after just one coat of something! They look almost as though theyíve had extensions Ė they look longer and darker and slightly thicker, more curved, but with none of the clumpy, clumsy effect of some mascaras. Itís pure sophistication.

Smudge, smudge, smudge.

I really didnt like this mascara at all. I found it tricky to apply, and by the end of the day, there was more under my eyes than what was on my lashes!

I really like this product, mainly because it seperates my eyelashes unlike most standard mascara brushes do. I love the packaging, because I think it looks really nice. It definitely won me over and I decided to try it out. I don't think that it's any different in comparison to other mascaras when it comes to lengthening and volumising, I just think it's really helpful for people who don't want to be walking around with clumps all over their eyelashes!
