This mascara is amazing. I'll admit a brushless wand is...odd, to say the least, BUT I really dig it! I have short, coarse, straight lashes so I have to curl them before and after applying mascara but surprisingly this mascara holds a curl. My lashes have length and volume that I could not achieve with a regular mascara wand....say what! FYI- don't follow the directions on the box and apply the product like you would any normal (boring) mascara (wiggle and zig-zag motions) and you just may surprise yourself and love it as much as I do.

Is the wacky mascara wand craze over yet? Because I am really not feeling it. And this mascara covered stick is no exception; the result you get is probably identical to what would happen if you put your mascara on with your pinky - a bit of color, nothing more. This might be your thing if you're super au natural, but if you want lengthening and/or thickening, forget about it. I suppose the one upside is there's no clumping, but you get the same upside if you try to color your lashes with a ballpoint pen.

This is an ok product. The idea is cool but it does not work too well for me. The black color is perfect and the brush is nice but the formula is a bit sticky and takes a long time to dry.

This mascara makes my lashes sticky and clumped together. I was hoping to get a little bit of length on my stubby lashes, but really got nothing at all. I much prefer the Clinique's High Length mascara with it's funky brush applicator.

This mascara is the bomb. I love the color. Dark shiny black. It doesn't give great volume, but it definitely gives a lot of length. It also lasts all day, and doesn't smudge. You have to take a little time to get the hang of applying it but it's well worth it. Basically you kind of hold the brush steady and blink to apply the color.
Also, I have super sensitive eyes, and it doesn't flake or otherwise irritate them. I can even wear this during the worst part of allergy season with no problems. They used to have this in a teal/green color as well as the black which I loved.

A brushless mascara is not a good idea. I purchased this product with high hopes, but this just confirms that mascara needs a brush for it to work. The formula clumps (cant comb/brush it out) and it runs. I now use this mascara combined with with a regular mascara with a brush, but it defeats the purpose.

I got this on sale for $10 (New Zealand dollars, so its very cheap for this brand)
I have been using the mineral foundation for a couple of years and really liked it so i thought i would try this mascara.
When i first used it, my lashes just clumped together and i hated it, so i stared clear for a while.
then i talked to a friend who used it and she told me how to do it. i did not get the clumps but i did not like it all. no volume (which is the main thing i want out of a mascara) and it gave me spider leg eyelashes. LOL.
At the NZ beauty expo, i talked to a Bare Escentuals representative and she informed me that this mascara is best for people with short eyelashes, to be placed on the bottom of the lashes and combed through or to use it with another mascara to get the tips of your lashes.
So i think i may use it to get the tips of my lashes now, and would not buy again, glad i did not have to pay full price for this one!!

I was a tad leary of picking this up..hadn't read reveiws on it, nothing-just saw it in my Ulta catalog before goin on a little spree there.
Any new fangled idea intrigues me though, and I'm a junkie for cosmetics like the rest of you, so I nabbed it.
Verrrrrry NICE! To me it doesn't take much of a learning curve, 2nd time I wore it I had the application down pat. If you have a clumping issue, just use the tip to seperate your lashes!
Its a great DARK BLACK and it truly does get every lash!
Also, as the box states its perfect for adding Va-Voom to any so-so mascaras you already own.
I've seen wands like this on the old Hard Candy glitter topcoats but never as a full mascara. Its one of the only mascaras that goes on so full, thick, dark and rich that I dont need a liner with it-I just look doll eyed! Lovely.

I read all the reviews of this mascara before purchasing it so I was quite dubious. I have just applied it to one eye and I must say it is fantastic. I did not curl my lashes beforehand and i just followed the instructions applying one coat and once it dried it has curled my lashes as it dried, I found this totally fantastic. I have quite long lashes that are straight.
I also tried this on my friend who was already wearing mascara, and the intense black colour revived the mascara she already had on without clumping her lashes. Pretty impressed.

The mascara is okay... there are better ones out there now. Naturally, my eyelashes are short and straight, therefore, it does nothing for me...
However, I think this would be nice for women with long, curly, but light colored lashes, because it's nice for a little showing.
I like the concept though. It's cute...

I bought this mascara when I was on my Bare Minerals kick, and I must say this is by and far the most horrible mascara I have ever used. It does nothing but clump my lashes together, period.

Let me start by saying that I'm so pathetically old that I clearly remember when all mascaras on God's good earth had metal wands. No brushes...just a grooved inch or so at the top that grabbed the formula and deposited it on lashes. Personally, I've always loved these wands...my lashes are thinning (again...the age thing...) and most of the big brushes deposit as much mascara on my lids as they do on my lashes. (Helena Rubinstein still makes a brushless wand...but the formula is waterproof which I don't wear.) Anyway...Bare Escentuals Magic Wand: the wand is indeed magic. The formula...not so much. It's thin and watery and my lashes instantly stick together. It builds no length (despite the dramatic claim) and certainly no thickness...unless you count the 4 stuck-together clumps of lashes I usually end up with as "volume". I do love the wand, though. It deposits that sloppy formula without it migrating all over my lids. And that in itself is a feat. Plus, I can actually see what I'm doing without a big fat brush blocking my view. It's also great for lower lashes. I guess I'll try to see if the wand will fit into other mascara tubes...I think it would be awesome to apply Lash Blast or Voluminous with the clean precision only a brushless wand can provide. But somehow I have the feeling the "neck" of those tubes are going to be too big for my skinny little brushless wand. :-(

HOLY GRAIL MASCARA. I've repurchased several times. My lashes have never looked so good. They are fairly long and have a hard time holding a curl. This stuff is fantastic. I curl my lashes first, then blink onto the wand several times, and it's just like BAM! LASHES! Doesn't flake or smudge, or irritate my sensitive eyes! My coworkers even commented when I first started wearing it!

Horrible product. I gave it a few chances then I gave them away lol....I wouldnt purchase again.

I used this for quite a while before switching to others mascaras. it was ok. But don't be mistaken, thinking that you only need the mascara and no brush. You NEED a comb/brush after applying. Otherwise your lashes will stick together and clump like crazy. For this simple fact i think its kinda silly. Why buy a brushless mascara if you end up needing to use a separate brush/comb to seperate
When I used this I was not a mascara person and didnt know better. It coated my lashes and made them darker. That was about it. Now that I am becoming more experienced in mascaras I would not buy this again. It's not special enough. It does not make a huge difference.
But if you are a novice and just want coating and darkening then this will be fine. Don't forget the comb though

I know there are alot of reviewers who aren't big fans, but I love this mascara! Yes, there is a learning curve, but i bought it yesterday and I love it already. It doesn't take very much time to apply either. It is a super WET formula, but I usually like that in a mascara. There is no brush as the name implies, it's just a thin rod with some tiny little ridges at the top of the wand that hold onto the product. I think the biggest trick in applying this is to wipe the excess off on a tissue before you begin, and you MUST use the blink method to put it on, don't wiggle it back and forth. I, like many others, always have to curl my lashes and I was worried about them falling because the formulation is so liquid, but I usually start with the wand not right at the base of the lash but a little bit up, so it won't make my lashes fall at the base where they were curled. Also, you must have an eyelash comb for this one! Blink on the first coat, then comb out, and wait to dry. Then apply another coat if you please. The results of this mascara are beautiful: Super long, thick, black, doe-eyed lashes that last all day. The other nice thing is my lashes don't feel brittle or heavy for how wet the formula is. I'm a fan!
EDIT: I still am in love with this mascara, but it works best if I put a very light coat of normal mascara under it, like define a lash. It's a lot harder to deal with if there isn't anything on before the brushless. The first light coat holds the curl, and then I put on the brushless after. Love love love it. Many of my friends have commented on how long and lovely my lashes look since I've been using this.

TWO BIG WORDS: CLUMP CITY!!
I have never experienced this many clumps since the Nutty Professor. DO NOT BUY! You might as well buy fake eye lashes or get them done.

This mascara clumps way too much and it takes extremely long trying to separate my lashes - I have no time for that in the morning. It goes on nice and dark though. The technique I've been taught was to "blink" onto the wand.

I wish this didn't take as much time and patience as it does to make it look good. It has great dark black pigment but the formula, though wet, is very heavy and takes the curl. However, I don't have the time to make this look good and I find that it flakes a little bit and can get into my eyes and irritate them and my lenses. I wish I liked this more. I really like the concept of it but it's going back to Sephora, unfortunately.

It's absolutely perfect if your mission is to have clumped up spider looking lashes. This brushless wonder managed to stick groups of 4-5 lashes together along my lash line. Removing it was also a pain. What a disgrace. Any cheap drugstore brand will do better than this. I am not against Bare Escentuals products - I love their glimmers and eye shadows, but they have got to step it up and start making better quality products!
