I am an admitted mascara junkie.. This product by far is the best at all three mascara staples. First it thinkens lashes, second it lengthens (beyond belief), and third it gives that false lash effect. This is by far my favorite mascara, it is hard to find and not cheap. But I find the tube last long (longer than most other) and WELL worth the price.. This by FAR is my FAV I just wish it was not soooooo hard to find..
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

I guess I am alone on this one. I truely wanted it to be worth the money I shelled out for it. Maybe I got a bad tube, but what I got was not even close to a HG base. My first problem is the applicator (brush), a fat weird shaped item that was hard to manage. Second, the visibly thick, creamy formula which was thicker than most mascara products I have seen. Perhaps I applied the base wrong, I dont know, but this was not what I was expecting. Will not buy again.
I bought this because the SA at Sephora touted it as being great. It was very hard to blend, even with moisturizer, and after a few days of use it irritated my skin. I have mild reddness on my cheeks and some on my nose, this did not "correct" the problem as it stated it would. I would not recommed this product not purchase again.

I was hoping this would work for me, but I was disappointed in the coverage. It did not even out my skin tone, and I have some redness around my nose, which was still very visible. I tried the several application options but nothing seemed to work. The SA advised that you could put on as much as you'd like but, but that did'nt work. Anyway Im not up for caken on my make up. The texture was nice though.
I LOVE this mascara BUT WHY is it talking about PERFUME???????
I usually have good luck with Lancome mascaras, BUT ooohh not with this one. First when you remove the wand from the tube, you almost have to force it out, because it is so tigh in the tube. Second, sooooo much product comes out on the tube, EVEN after the tight pull out. I'm NO fan of the whole wipe the wand with a tissue remedy, so I never do, who wants thats tissue stuff ruining your new masacara (NOT ME!) ?? Finally trying to manipulate that wand was not fun, and the end result was not worth the trouble.... BIG THUMBS DOWN, shame on you Lamcome.
I broke down and tried this mascara again, thinking the first tube I purchased was just a fluke. It was NOT a fluke, this mascaras has me puzzled. First it comes out of the tube appearing DRY/CLUMPY, even when bought new, yet when it dryes on the lashes it not?? Although if not careful and you need more than one coat it will clump. Second, what is whith the HUGE brush?? Who's eyes are that BIG?? Theres no way you could ever use all or even half of that brush during coating. After 3 days of using the tube is already drying out and starting to flake.. Back it goes!!! Not worth it!!
This did not work for me as much as I wanted it to. I was just sooo dry. I felt like I was wearing a clay mask most of the day and after I removed it my face still felt dry. Alas my search continues for the perfect facial suncreen.
I adore this mascara.. One of my favs, right along with Definicils.. Definitely the BEST fiber/extention mascara on the market.. My ONLY complaint is that it is SOOOO HARD to find now.. I used to be able to get it at Sephora but no more....
I purchased this because it was new and thought I'd give it a try. It just did not work for me. The formula was to dry, even in a new tube, which caused it to clump after the first coat. I did like the color, but the cost was not worth the waste of a new tube of masacara IMO.
I Love this hair spray. I does everything it is suppose to do. No sticky mess, or dry flakes to contend with. The only problem I keep having with nearly every can is that the spray nozzles get clogged no matter what I do. I have even on occasions purchased BRAND NEW cans that were clogged and had to be returned.(Or something goes wrong with the spray nozzles???) For this reason alone I have begun searching for an alternate hairspray.

I TOTALLY AGREE!! This product left my hair very sticky and unmanagable. I have had better luck with drugstore brands. Very disappointed DUE to all the raving of the QVC folks.
I tried this mascara based on some reviews, but it did not work out for me. I did not like the fact that you have to really work with it to obtain any results. This is not a fast/quik work product..
I AGREE with the other post!!! This mascara is awful!! I cannot imagine WHY anyone would recommend the use of this product??? Maybe they are referring to "back in the day" when this was possibly the only thing to use?? But come on who are they kidding now.. The under eye racoon look is NOT for me, thank you.
