Review of the waterproof version. I'm Asian, my eyelashes don't look full nor thin and they're pretty straight.

I really wanted to love this but I can't. I do love the bubbled brush, I love the way it pushes the lashes out, but the product always gets clumpy and hard on my eyelashes, no matter the method of application I tried (wiping off the end of the brush, wiping off the whole brush, using a comb, using a plastic guard (like the one that comes with eyeko's mascaras)…). It looks not so graceful indeed. And I've read that it is known for its waterproof characteristic but it always ends up on my down lids (mostly because of my closing eyes when I smile… sighs) wether I powder my eyelids or not. Which makes me doubt about its waterproof claim.

Actually, I don't see any cool thing about this mascara except its classy packaging and its interesting brush which doesn't even work on my eyelashes. Not worth the price at all for me. I prefer much more the Eyeko's skinny black I had got in Malaysia six months ago, though its regular straight wand. It was truly waterproof (I sweat grossly a lot.) and much lighter to wear.

This is my favorite mascara, I love how the bubble part fans my lashes. It doesn't add too much volume but I like that because too much volume can make your lashes look spidery and with this it's totally natural looking, just better.

This is really great. Provides a look that's somewhat dramatic but not over-the-top. It took me a couple of uses to get used to the "triple bubble" wand, but I find that it helps me really fan my lashes out. Excellent length and definition with this one! The color is black but not super-inky black. No smudging or flaking whatsoever.

This would be HG for me if it provided a little more volume. But I like this a lot and I would buy it again.

i am slowly starting to love this mascara. When i first bought it, i really thought my sephora SA had given me a terrible recommendation but then later i was glad i bought it. First of all, this mascara doesn't dry as quickly as most dior mascaras do and second of all i love the volume i get from this mascara. it is $33 which for some might be too much but i truly came to love this mascara. One of my favorites which has replaced diorshow!

This is a review of the waterproof version in black. First of all, I love the brush! I find it even easier to apply mascara with this weird shaped brush than with a normal one because the ball shape at the end can reach the outer lashes in the corners with ease. The mascara applies very well, it lengthens and thickens making lashes look va va voom, but not caked or clumpy. It is very black - perhaps too dramatic for daytime. And it truly is waterproof. I purchased waterproof as my eyes were prone to watering. After a while it does dry out, at which point I thought it started to look a bit spidery, so I had to bin it before it was totally used up, which is annoying as it's so expensive. I am going to repurchase though - just not the waterproof version as it is really difficult to remove and I would lose a few lashes every time in the process.

This is the best mascara that I have ever ever used. I have tried many different mascaras. It makes my lashes long, thick, separated and flawless!

This one is a really good mascara. Though I found the wand a bit off-putting at first, when I actually tried it on, I was utterly impressed.

Great length, formula not too wet nor too dry, just right so you can layer coats without ending up with clampy or spidery lashes. The effect is bold but somehow still natural. Provides lots of length and seperates really well too. The only downside in my opinion is that it doesn't give tons of volume, as in false lash type of volume.

What I especially love about this mascara is that it doesn't smudge, transfer or flake during the day, it holds strong until you take it off.

Overall, I don't think you can go wrong with this one, it's a great product to have in your makeup bag that works from day to night.

TIP: To amp up the volume, apply one or two coats of this mascara to your already curled lashes. With a q-tip or small brush apply some baby powder (or even face powder) to your lashes and then go in again with your mascara and apply a couple more coats. You won't even need to wear falsies.

I bought a small size of this from Sephora for $15 and unfortunately I wasnt impressed. I expected a lot from this mascara, especially given that it was Givenchy. I normally look for more of a lengthening effect in mascara; Im less concerned about volume. This mascara claims that it is A four-in-one mascara that creates intense volume, strong curl, infinite length, and complete lash care. I found that it gave decent volume without clumping, but only mediocre length. It didnt hold the curl in my long, straight, blonde lashes. I will say that it didnt feel bad on my eyes. It didnt clump up on me, which is a huge plus, it didnt flake, but it did transfer under my lower lashes. The brush is definitely different, but I didnt feel the globe-like shapes created any different effect then a normal, straight brush. All around, its an average product for an expensive price, I will not be repurchasing or recommending.

Love, love, love this one! I was a little freaked out by the brush, but I haven't found anything I like as well as my previous (and discontinued) HG, so I figured I had nothing to lose. That's the beauty of being able to retun products. Anyhow, this mascara did everything it claims to do. My lashes were curled, long, full and glossy. I look like I have false eyelashes on. My lashes do not feel brittle at all, there was no flaking, and the curl lasted all day. In fact, I applied it this morning at 6:30 and my lashes look as good now at 8 p.m. as they did when I walked out the door at 7 this morning. Don't be intimidated by the brush. It's very easy to get an even, clump free application. I will be stocking up.

This review is for the waterproof version of this product. Pros: Novel brush is actually easy to use and gets to all lashes, plus the case is very chic. Cons: Very pricey and smudged considerably. Also, this isn't a con per se, but I'm not sure it lives up to the 4-in-1 claim. Returned this to Sephora.
