I have never hated a product so much. I try to love this! I only use it on a "no makeup day". It feels very crispy on my lashes, the formla is verrrry dry. I normally gravitate towards mascaras with drier formulas because they build well. This one doesn't, it makes lashes look very natural and takes forever to build. It does stay true to it's word that it is waterproof. I only bought this because in Florida it rains alot over summer. I wear makeup everytime I go out and if I get rained on my liner and shadow will stay in tact but never my mascara.. I thought I would like this. Lastly it makes my lashes very dry so one or two lashes will fall out when I use this.
This stuff is really nice, very pretty. I have the Gold one, and I plan on buying more soon. It doesn't irritate my eyes like sephoras does. This is jam packed with glitter! When you swatch it on your hands The glitter might look a little sparse but when it's on your lids it looks great. Only gave it 4 lippies for this one soul reason.. It takes forever to dry -___- so the glitter usually ends up on my crease as well. I have a tip though, apply your mascara to the bottom lashes BEFORE you apply this glitter liner or else it will go all over your lid. Apply the glitter liner and do your top lash line mascara because you will be tilting your head back so that allows ur liner to dry in peace (:
I always call this a tinted moisturizer on accident. The coverage is VERY sheer - which is why I love it! My face doesn't need much coverage, this let's my own skin shine through the makeup. When I first opened it, beware.. It smells like straight sunscreen! It wears off but honestly I can look past it. If you purchase this DO NOT use a regular foundation brush or you will hate it hate it hate it. It will come out streaky. Use anything that can buff this into your skin, a flat top brush, stippling, kabuki.. Etc. I personally like to use my elf powder brush - WORKS GREAT AND BLENDS LIKE A DREAAMM. Also blends 3x faster than their stippling brush. Almost forgot to mention that this makes you look greasy/dewy. Haaha there's a fine line. I lightly apply powder over it and it'll look fine. I don't apply powder to my cheeks, nose & cupids bow and I get a nice highlighted look. If you are looking for good longevity in this don't count on it.
Woow love this mascara. It's very black and doesn't clump. It holds a curl well on it's own. I like having long and thick lashes, so I normally use a few coats of mascara & I found that most mascaras dry out and get clumpy fast. Girls let me tell you this will take ages for it to dry up. I remember using it only a couple times, I just let it sit there in my train case. Until one day I used it again. Been using it ever scince. The brush is nice and full. However, If your an on the go girl this does take some time to dry IF you layer it. THIS STUFF WORKS EVEN BETTER PAIRED OVER ANOTHER MASCARA! I never use it alone now, mostly cause I never want to run out. Loll deff worth the money.
