I'm still on the fence with this product. I have med to light skin. The description says that its colorless but my skin tinted white when I put it on. My powder foundation didn't apply properly over this but tinted moisturizer did. It seemed to lighten whatever I put over it. My pores are large eventhough I exfoliate and do regular masks. I can still see pores. I'm going to give it a little more time. Maybe I just need to get the technique down better. It's still worth a try so I'm giving a neutral review.

Had some initial difficulty learning how to use the slim spiral wand. But waiting till dry and combing solved the short term problem. Shiseido rep said to remove wand with swiveling motion to remove excess product. Also apply pulling straight up--no wiggle. Worth the learning curve. Light as a feather and holds great.

Incredible product when used properly. Don't over-do it. (That may be the problem with the bad reviewers.) One or two blinks should be enough. Spend a minute at the Shiseido counter and learn--it's worth it!! Curl holds all day. I like to curl high first, apply, wait 30 seconds & apply mascara. Lashes should relax to "unscared" look. Touch up curl as desired.
This may sound totally weird but my wife sprayed this on me on my way out to work. The guys at the office thought I was wearing expensive aftershave. I had to beat the women off with a baseball bat. It really should be unisex. My wife loves this scent on me. Ladies--try this experiment if you are sick of the smell of garbage aftershave. I'm sold!!!!!!!
