So surprised to read bad reviews of this. I don't wear a lot of makeup but mascara is a daily staple for me. I've tried a good few - Chanel -meh, Dior - neh, YSL - smeared like crazy.... LOVED Lancome Fatale but now discountinued. It may depend on the shape of your eyelashes and what you are looking for in a mascara - I hate the heavy clumpy look and my eyelashes are long and curved already -i need separation and a good lift. I'd say this definitely does what it claims - on me: great for an open eye look, gives great lift. Would definitely repurchase. Did not find brush difficult at all. For comparison, Chanel was sooo heavy on my eyelashes with only one coat, I almost look half asleep. :)

The wand takes some getting used to, and it does require a different technique to apply. But once I mastered how to do it, wow, it's like wearing falsies. No other mascara I've tried has this effect. It takes more time to put on, so definitely not your everyday mascara.

Worst mascara I have ever had. Think of everything you look for in a mascara. Well, this is the complete opposite

Hate it! Is supposed to lenghten, thicken and seperate. Does nothing of this at all. I have spare and thin lashes and this mascara was recommended. Instead, it left me with clumpy and spidery lashes. No thanks, this is nothing for me.

My holy grail !! Ive been using this mascara for years now and I always keep coming back to it everytime I try a new one that dissapoints me. This never fails, its pricey but worth it.

Very nice product; tried it first as a sample from Sephora. Long, thick gorgeous lashes with minimal effort and only 1 coat. No flakes or smearing. Have since purchased the full size and love it.

My first few attempts with this wand, were a little hit and miss. When starting out to use this I found the best results for me, were to use a dab off the mascara from the end of the wand on to tissue and have a cotton bud handy in case I need to tidy up mistakes. I think loading up the wand with too much product causes issues. Its easier to use the "drier" it is, because when its new it seems quite "wet", so the older the mascara the easier the product is to manage. The combo of the wand and mascara is really good - my lashes look long and remain curled all day. For me this works as lengthening not volumizing mascara. I've not experienced any mascara flaking off.Cons are that the mascara takes a minute to apply, if you just want to sweep on mascara and go, then this is not for you. Also and it can be stubborn to remove, more so than Chanel's waterproof mascaraI personally find it better than Chanel's Le Volume mascara

3.5 lippies if I could, mediocre mascara. I find the brush is mostly functional for the ends of your lashline. However, for someone like me with stubby straight(ish) Asian lashes, the round wand actually makes application kinda annoying because its a) slower and b) you have to maneuver the wand as you go along to avoid accidental smudging. That being said, if you're careful and patient it gives nice length, not the most amazing volume, but the separation is great! No clumpy lashes and I love that it coats lashes while maintaining separation. Staying power is ok. I've had it smudge every now and then but good for the most part. Overall pros are good lash separation/definition, wand is great for outer edges of lash line, cons are it takes more effort/time, occasional smudging, and for the price the results are not outstanding or anything.

As a MUA and SPA-Therapist I felt I had to write a review, as this particular Givenchy mascara is awful. I love the wand and it does a beautiful job at fanning out your lashes, but the mascara never sets. It stays moist on your lashes and smudges. This unfortunately happened to me at work and luckily I noticed this after my first customer (55min Swedish massage). I managed to wipe away most of the product from under my eyes, which is, for a water based mascara, hard to remove which is odd as it smudges so much. But I was horrified that such a luxurious and expensive mascara could fail so miserably! I'm a MUA and a make-up junkie, but this has never previously happened to me. Not even with really cheap mascaras! Do not buy this!
