I bought this mascara yesterday and so far I am pleased with the application of it - it separates and doesn't clump when applied with light hand, actually you have to find the right technique of application however it is so with every one mascara. One coat is enough for every day use, and second coat gives such a drama that cannot be described. The colour is very rich black and the lashes stay s bit soft with the mascara on them. The packaging is very sleek and glamorous and when pulled out the wand is clear with no blobs of mascara on the bristles. No ridiculous smell and the consistency is neither too wet nor too thick. As for the removal - it removes fairly easy, I just soak my lashes with cotton dipped in warm water and when it stays clear of mascara just swipe once with gentle eye make-up remover to take off the traces of mascara that haven't gone away if any. So since I need to use this for a while, maybe a couple of weeks to see on the flakiness and smudging issues I'll probably update my review, but so far I am impressed. See you soon :)
It took me some time to realize that this is what I had been looking for sooooo long. The reason is that as brand new the mascara is more .. wet and some times the definition is not very good. So I've forgotten a tube in my drawer and when decided to apply it once more before I throw it away It turned out to be just perfect - I was so excited and amazed. An what I like: - easy to apply, which is very important to me, because mornings are little hell with two kids to be prepared for school and kinder garden - gives not too much of a volume, but enough and in combination with length - defines - lashes are glossy - no flaking, no smudging - doesn't irritate my eyes - lashes stay soft and the mascara lasts whole day - easy to remove - easy to come by - not dirty expensive For reference, my lashes are long and curled and even thick, but the individual hairs are too thin and fair at the end so what I look for in a mascara is mainly definition and nice, healthy look, without any clumps or balls and not too overdone. Update: This f-l-a-k-e-s like hell and I developed dry eyes syndrome so i won't be purchasing again. Never any L'oreal mascara.
Absolutely gorgeous mascara! I've been through many different mascaras lately in a search of the HG and although there are some very good findings there always is some issue with them like hard smudging, irritating my eyes and so on, that keeps me from repurchasing. And I think this is great for me because It separates lashes nicely, never clumps and you are of full control to layer as much as you wish according to the look you like. It doesn't flake, smudge, irritate my eyes. It makes them look very delicate, fanned and pretty but still natural. Application is a breeze as is the removal which is very important to me since I have two kids and mornings are such a rush that I don't have enough time to attend to my make-up. And for reference - my lashes are curled and a bit long but not too thick. Update: One lippy down due to the bad formula I've bought the last time....have they changed something....It just glued my lashes.
One of my favorite mascaras although It took me two - three applications to get to love it. What I like: - the brush - the separation of lashes, It fans them in some way - the natural thicknes that It gives - opens up the eye - can be used immediately after purchasing, no need to let it dry a bit as some other mascaras What I don't like - the formula is maybe a bit dry, however it is better this way than beeing too wet. - sometimes it flakes but not allways. - not the best mscara for the lower lashes And I think it realy helps lashes to look healthier. I don't know if it elongates them or thickens them, but for sure after one week of using it I found my lashes darker and healthier. I'll repurchase. Update: It flakes on me, and although I do like It much I wont be purchasing again, oh, and It is hard to remove.
A great mascara as it comes to overall effect. It makes my lashes very beautiful - separated, covered from root to top, no clumps, no smudge. It is easy to aplly and lashes look naturally thicker, healthy and nice. I'll repurchase. As for the lash grow - I haven't use It long enough to tell. Edit: Unfortunately my lashes fell off from the Lumene mascaras, I don't know why, so I won't repurchase, I guess.
