this is AWESOME. when i wear mascara, i am not wearing it for the "natural" look. my lashes are so thin and straight, that i want something to really make them stand out. this is tons better than shu's precise volume mascara, and you can really build it up, and it just gets thicker and thicker. and no smudging whatsoever. it's also very black and i'm glad that i found something cheap that works! i was really starting to through a lot of expensive mascaras that were OK but not something i was really impressed with. this is wow, and i'd buy this over and over again. also, this holds a curl well!

this is good! the first coat was sheer and gray, which was disheartening to see. the second coat was somewhat black but with streaks. third coat was perfect, opaque, shiny black. i'm not sure if i would buy this again, since there are so many black polishes out there and this is only the first one i tried.
i was expecting a miracle mascara based on reading the reviews below, but i did not end up with such results as described by others. this isn't bad, but not super great either. this doesn't clump, but seems to require several coats to get the look i want. this also doesn't smudge or flake. i have straight lashes that i curl beforehand, and this will SLIGHTLY pull it out but my lashes still end up semi-curled. i'll use this up but i doubt i'll buy it again.
this leaves a really cute pinky sheen on my lips which i like a lot. but i wouldn't buy this again because the packaging is awful. i twist and twist the base and just stare at the tip waiting for ANY gloss to come out, and then a huge glob slowly oozes out. i'm sure there are other colors out there that can achieve the same look without all the wasted time of waiting for the gloss to come out.
it just straightened my lashes right out, and didn't even really "double" my lashes. it might be good for those with naturally curly lashes. but even then, i'd recommend estee lauder's magnascopic for better results.

fabulous fabulous fabulous! except for the fact that it pulls the curl right out of my lashes. besides that, my lashes were super long, longer than with any other mascara i've tried, very black, and very thick. i was shocked putting it on because my lashes never looked that long and clump-free before. my lashes ended up looking good...but very straight. i always curl my eyelashes before putting on mascara, and it's too bad this straightens them back out.
good only if you have naturally curly lashes!!! i always use a curler before i put on mascara and hate it when it pulls the curl out, and that's exactly what happened with this one. i also refuse to curl my lashes after i apply mascara because my lashes always stick to the curler and i'm afraid they're gonna pull out. however, this did make my lashes longer, darker, and thicker...but too bad it can't hold a curl...will not be buying again.
