I originally thought that I could only buy this online, and was kind of disappointed by that. But then I went shopping, and just as I was about to leave the store, I looked at the make up section one last time, and I saw them there, and almost literally pounced on them! I got all four of them and some of the eyeshadows and immediately went home and ooh-ed and ahh-ed at them for a good half an hour. I tried them the next day, the green one for my green eyes, and over the next few days, I alternated and found this... PROS: -The container: It's simple - I'm IN LOVE with it! It's very sleek and shiny and pretty and clean. It's not annoying or big, it's very easy to use and it just looks very nice. -Formula: the consistency is great and it separates and thickens the lashes more so at the base of them. It does smell bad, either. It doesn't clump, which was the biggest thing for me. -Complimenting colors: They really do make your eyes pop. -The colors: The colors are very nice! I liked that it comes with the standard black mascara and the colored ones, too. The colors are vibrant and very every day wearable without looking too over the top. -Stay power: It stays there all day, although it will flake a bit from time to time. CONS: -The wand: On the black one, though it is big and you'd think that it would reach every lash, it doesn't. It is slightly flimsy, but it still works well overall. The one on the colored side is shorter and so isn't flimsy at all, and so it is nicer to use. That's it for cons! The price isn't anything to rave about, but it isn't super expensive, I got my for about 20 each. Overall, I definitely loved this product and I would definitely repurchase it - but I need to finish off my current ones first!

I absolutely love this product! I am a total mascara junkie, and love to try all kinds, and so when I saw this with the whole light interplay technology, I went straight for it when I got to the store. I love how it actually does sparkle at times and does catch the light. It hasn't clumped once more me, and thickens and lengthens my lashes to a beautiful extent. I also love the pitch black color! The brush is fabulous, because it is big and full and got every eyelash. I am definitely going to buy this product again, and I do recommend it, and quite highly at that!
It was okay. It went on exceptionally well, and generally lasts the entire day nicely, though it will weather off eventually (but a little too quickly at times). It didn't make all that much different to my eye color, though it did make the green pop just a little bit. It's packaging was a nice bonus, because it is clean, easy, and well put together. I think that this is just a cute, harmless little product. Though I wasn't all that impressed overall, I do like it, because it is long-lasting and I love the colors. I have been using this quite a bit and I do like it. I would buy this product again, and maybe experiment with colors. Just because your eyes are brown or blue (etc!) doesn't mean you have to go with the colors they recommend, because the hazel color palette is actually quite pretty on my green eyes as well.
Eh, this product is nothing that I would ever buy again. I tried because I love mascara and thought that it looked really different and innovative, and so went for it it. What a big mistake that was! It clumps no matter how you put it on and constantly flakes, no matter how much I reapply the stuff. The little brush it comes with is flimsy and not productive nor conducive when putting it on. The plus side is that it DOES get the lower lashes. But in this product, the cons out weight the pros, so I do not recommend it. Go and buy something else, anything is better than this.
