At first I was intrigued by the dual brush concept, which in theory provides length and volume... when I tried it out at home I was not impressed. One side of the brush has tiny soft rubbery nubs, the other long and spiky bristles. The side with the little nubs was useless as the bristles were too small to be effective, basically like rubbing your lashes with smooth rubber coated in mascara. The side with the long bristles was incredibly poky, you couldn't apply the mascara without poking yourself many times in the eye and/or eyelid! Besides being painful, the bristles were spaced so far apart that it did pretty much nothing.
If the brush weren't bad enough, the formula was one of the worst I'd ever tried. Flakey, clumpy, smudges five minutes after you put it on and stung my eyes like a mother. I purchased this instead of my usual Lancome Fatale mascara because I was broke and hoping to save a buck. What a waste of money! Should have just stuck with what worked. Don't buy this!

this product was average but i think that really depends what you are looking for.
>LENGTHENS! wow! it really will lengthen your lashes
>does provide ''liner''effect but only to a certain extent. i think the effect occurs because it doesnt volumise lashes, therefore creating a kind of line behind your lashes (does that make sense?). its not really noticable, though, so if that is specifically what you are looking for, you may be disapointed
>as stated above, it WILL NOT VOLUMISE
>the brush is really, really thin! this makes it kinda hard to apply but i think it helps to lengthen the lashes
>it dries kinda slowly (1-2 mins) but it doesnt smudge at all once dried (unless wet obv) so thats good i think
i am kinda undecided about this mascara. when i bought it i was really disapointed but i have decided to wear it with a volumising mascara, thus benefiting from the lengthening effects of this mascara aswell. i dont necessarily recommend this mascara because it only lengthens and doesnt volumise but if you are looking for a solely lengthening mascara, go for it. the liner effect is, as stated above, barely noticable but quite nice in a VERY subtle way. definitely try it on in the shop before buying to see how the thin applicator works for you and to see if you like the effect-its not for everyone.

Here's the 411 on my lashes first:
They're extremely thick and pretty long (I'll upload pictures the next time I wear this mascara), so if I use Effet Liner, I skip curling them because then it's just unnecessary DRAMA! (Though some people absolutely adore the false lash effect--I'm not a fan).
Effet Liner lives up to its name: my eyes look so much more defined and lined with just one coat of this stuff! Also, the formula is liquidy, yet it coats the lashes very thickly, owing to the strangely engineered brush.. but it's a HUGE plus for those with sparse lashes. As in, I think this might be the GO TO mascara if your lashes are not as thick as you'd like them to be (sometimes stress can thin them out temporarily..as well as poor nutrition etc). This mascara CURLS super dramatically, so if you have long lashes, SKIP the curler!! SERIOUSLY!! Or you'll look like you're wearing falsies (unless that's what you want in the first place)
I don't wear this during the day because of the dramatic nature of this mascara. It is a heavyduty number, people!! SERIOUSLY!! It CURLS, THICKENS, LENGTHENS and DARKENS your lashes so intensely, I'd recommend this to mascara-lovers everywhere. I personally said I wouldn't buy it again ONLY because I just can't handle the heavyduty drama this mascara provides.

rather heavy handed mascara... but the brush is "adustable" - you use the shorter side for thicker coat and the longer side for more natural lash (though far from natural looking, other products much better). I only use it when I go out clubbing as it goes on quite thick. Doesn't clump though, which is a nice attribute.
But there are other, better, mascaras out there.
Did like the packaging though.

Hit and miss. Tried it and hated it. Tried it again and...no I didn't love it, but it looked okay.
Pros: very fluid texture so it doesn't clump; separates the lashes rather than squidging them together into spikes (so, good if you like a natural look); easy to find in UK (available in any Boots or Superdrug)
Cons: fluid texture means that it spatters on the lid - very messy; doesn't give me the dramatic look I go for.
I'm going to use this on 'no makeup days' to give a little definition to my blonde-tipped lashes.

This mascara is AMAZING!!!! I use this mascara with the l'oreal telescopic explosion mascara brush and my eyelashes look fantastic!!! They are long, curled and beautifully fanned out. Many people have been asking me what mascara I use because my lashes look so long and curled. Some people even thought I was using the YSL singulier mascara which is the same price as two of these mascaras! I have medium length lashes which are quite thick so I usually mascara mascaras that specialise in volume or both volume and length. As for the liner effect, after a few practices, it did look like I had applied a neat line of eyeliner, but even without the liner effect, this mascara is wonderful!!! I would definetly recommend, especially if you use in conjunction with the l'oreal telescopic explosion.

I can't believe this gem got such a low rating! Yes, it is messy, but the results are so worth it. I have it in brown which is a very nice rich chocolaty color. The brush is brilliant, it gets all these tiny hiding lashes and makes it easier to get to the roots. I have these annoying blond roots that are quite a challenge to reach with a regular mascara brush. it doesn't flake or smudge on me (mascara smudging is never an issue for me, though). Another wonderful thing about this mascara - it gets only better after long use! It was a bit too liquid in the beginning but now it got a right texture. I tried different ways to use the brush and what I ended up doing is coating lower lashes with longer bristles (I have very long lower lashes) and then first coating upper lashes with short bristles to get to the roots and tiny corner lashes and then lengthening the ends with long bristles. Works like magic. I bought it in green color, too, but haven't tested it yet. It is a problem to find this mascara in brown in the US. I hope it remains in online stores for a long time!

The product itself isn't too bad since it does elongate my lashes and makes them a lot more visible. However, the brush pokes my eyes every time. The whole brush is very spiky and some parts are a lot longer and it pokes my eyes every single time. It's so annoying. The packaging is also bulky. I will never buy this again.

This is a great fun mascara. I donít wear it everyday because it requires some time to apply and get it right. But Iíve never had such dramatic lashes as when I use this product. UPDATE: I now alternate this as my everyday mascara and it goes with me especially when travelling. It stays put even if I leave it on overnight (happens sometimes when I stay over at my boyfriend's) - I do get a bit of smudging if I sleep in it, but nothing compared to other mascaras. And whatever does end up smudging is easy to clean up with a damp tissue - unlike other mascaras which smudge and then cling to the skin and won't come off without a full cleansing. I often skip the liner effect step and just use the longer bristles so I can use this mascara quickly when I am away from my vanity. Otherwise, it is something that I want to be sitting down and using my makeup mirror to put on, because you want to be careful with this mascara - it can be messy if you are not careful, and it does take a minute to dry, and I've poked myself in the eye with the long bristles before. However I've bought it twice now, and find I can quickly apply this standing up at the bathroom mirror in a flash when I need to. Horray!
