Great formula, not too wet, not too dry, does not flake or run off. Does not clump on application. I have sensitive eyes, but this does not irritate them, which is a huge plus for me. Tiny wand makes it easy to cover each lash. Dramatic false lash effect? Look elsewhere, but for a really beautiful polished look that lasts until you're ready to take it off, I recommend checking it out.

I can see why some people hate this mascara. This is not at all volumizing or lengthening and is not great at holding curl. There is no false-lash effect. It's not a party/clubbing mascara and will not make you look like a Playboy Bunny.
What it is great for is defining each individual lash, it's long-wearing and does not smudge (all day). I find this mascara great for day-time/work as the effect is very delicate (just like the Burberry mascara but longer lasting). My eyelashes are very blonde and quite long so for work I am looking for something that defines, colours and lasts all day. If you don't want the false-lash look and want a very natural look and are tired of having mascara smudge on your eyes then you will probably like this a lot.
The brush is very fine and small and the consistency is very light which really allows you to define each lash and get right down to the base of the lash line. I just wished that this mascara had a dark brown version.

I've been using Lancome Definicils, Hypnose, Blinc and Benefit's They're Real' but was given a free sample of this. I love it. The brush is very thin and great for separating lashes, creating definition and catching small lashes at the corners. Goes on very black, formula is nice and creamy rather than watery, dries to a non-crisp finish and lasts from 8am to 10pm without flaking or smudging. It also comes off with water alone. I have very long lashes that are not all that thick, and this makes them look great. I wear it for work. However, it wouldn't be the best choice if you like very thick false lash style mascara that coats heavily in one go. This is quite natural.
In comparison to the others: on me, this mascara is less thickening than Hypnose or They're Real. The wand is much better for separating lashes than the Hypnose brush and a touch better than the Definicils wand. It wears as well as They're Real. It's the easiest of the bunch to remove- it comes off with just water. They're Real is toughest to get off. It's less watery than Blinc, easier to apply further coats and doesn't dry as stiff. However, Blinc is the easiest of all to remove.

Anyone who reads my very few mascara reviews will know I have problems with mascara - drugstore or high end - leaving a grey smear under my one eye. As a result, I often don't wear mascara - which I know for some women is the one cosmetic item they always wear - except for special occasions/events. Clarins has a "Fix" product that helps and I have found a few pretty good mascaras that are less likely to smear but for the most part, I had just not been bothering. What I absolutely LOVE about Bobbi Brown's Intensifying Mascara is that it really defines each and every lash - there is virtually no clumping. My lashes look longer but still natural, rather than the "bottle brush" look that seems so prevalent in mascara ads and with some of the goopier mascaras out there. It's not a look I like; I much prefer my lashes to look natural but "better" - each lash separated, defined and lengthened. THAT is what this mascara does. If that's not a look you like, then this mascara isn't for you. This also lasts though long days without that ugly grey smear. I am SO pleased that I've been wearing mascara every day since I got it and that says a LOT.

I wanted a mascara that didn't clump, smudge, flake off or irritate my eyes. This fits the bill perfectly. I love the tiny brush - it gives me lots of control, allowing me to get close to the lash roots and capture every lash. I like wearing mascara on my lower lashes, and it's particularly great for those.
I would say 'intensify' is a good name for what this mascara does. It doesn't give huge volume or drama, it just makes the best of your natural lashes, helping them look blacker, shinier and a little thicker. I think it's pretty classy.

How the hell did this product get to market! It doesn't even look like you are wearing mascara. It is thin, absolutely no volume (though that's not what I was looking for but this almost makes your lashes thinner than they really are) and looks spikey. It dries very quickly and as such running a mascara comb through it only makes your lashes break off. I brought this back immediately.

I too got this as a sample, and REALLY like it.
It is practically flake free, I maybe had 1 flake by the end of the night.
I've been using it for a few weeks now, and I really really like it! The brush is TINY but I think that is kind of nice.
It does not hold a curl very well at ALL.
So if that's a big one for you, I probably wouldn't recommend this product to you.
But otherwise, I highly recommend this product, and probably would buy full size IF it held a curl better.

Received a sample of this mascara and was excited to try this, but am disappointed. I first tried coating this on top of my existing mascara (Shu Ueumura's Xtreme Precise Finish mascara) to make sure it didn't run, because nobody wants racoon eyes. First test, A-OK. The formula seemed lightweight, non-clumping and volumized. I like how thin the actual wand is, but I think the bristles could've been a tad longer, but is good at getting into corners. Again, though, this was a sample I had and the actual size could vary a bit.
Next step: all-day wear. Though the mascara was lightweight and volumized, the second it coated my bare lashes, my curl deflated. After a few swipes in the morning, I realized I didn't have time to redo my makeup (mascara comes last). Needless to say, when my makeup isn't right—especially my lashes—my whole day feels off. Don't get me wrong; I like that it lengthened my lashes and gave it a feathery look, but it completely straightened out my lashes (stick straight), which is a huge (!) negative for me. Another reviewer mentioned this was a great mascara for Asian lashes—not so, especially if your lashes are like mine and don't hold a curl well. If this mascara could hold a curl, it very well could've been my HG mascara, but it doesn't.

HG mascara. The only mascara I've used that doesn't run down my face or flake off. This mascara lasts even in the rain. The wand is tiny so you can reach all your lashes. Very pricy, but worth it in my opinion.

the worse mascara i used so far, cannot see any effect after putting it on and it smashes after few hours.
