I bought this in dark brown (which ended up being close to black), at the same time as the regular Voluminous in Carbon Black and I prefer this by far! I love CG lash blast and find this comparable. I would continue buying them both. Nice long lashes, no under eye transfer, which, by the way, is a huge problem for me with the regular Voluminous. I cannot put that one on my lower lashes but this one is no problem. I like that the color isn't too milk chocolatey, and I like the brush, even though the wand seems flimsy. I also get a kick out of the glam packaging :) I will keep this in my stash, as a drugstore brand I quite like it!

This may be the best, "cheap" matte eyeshadow that I've ever bought at a drugstore.... And the quality is comparable to high end products! This is great for brightening and evening out my eyelids, can be used all over or as a highlighter, depending on your skin tone of course. It is pigmented, creamy, and applies like a dream. I hope they will make some more great matte shadows! Normally the inexpensive ones lack pigmentation but not this! HG for sure! The package kind of sucks but nothing I can't live with, and the price is right!
I was so excited for this product but on me, all I can smell when it dries down is a musky, sandlewoody type of scent. I had forgotten I sprayed some on and then caught a whiff later that reminded me of patchouli (which I HATE) and wondered where it came from.... then I remembered. So glad I tried this before buying! Just like Lola, the bottle is to die for but the scent is NOT for me. I will stick to the original Daisy which I personally find to be much more fruity/floral!
