When I first tried out this product, it clumped and then looked like there was no product at all after a few hours. But after a week or so of using it, it began to give fuller looking lashes. This...

Love this mascara. At first, I hated how clumpy it was. After a week of every day uses, I started to love it. The clumps turned into lots of volume and it still lengthened. The only drawbacks: no...

I like the regular version of this mascara, but this version of it was terrible! It clumped and smudged on me. The only plus side was it doesn't have the weird fake rose scent that the regular...

I already have been using Glam Black since the Colossal was fresh on the market so when Absolute Black came out, I had to give it a go. The two mascaras are so similar, I think if someone did a...

This mascara is truly black and doesn't fade to some greyish colour. Other than that - it joined my lashes into 3 large unilashes after using it for a week. The brush is too large for me to get...
