This has been my daily mascara since it came out. I have so many mascaras, but I never like what I get. I don't like clumps, I don't like smudging later in the day and I have to be able to apply a mascara and go. I don't want to spend extra time in recoating or combing my lashes. Although this mascara isn't perfect, it is the best I've come across so far and keep coming back to it, even though I still keep trying others. I have long lashes, but this somehow makes them look longer. And best of all, the brush combs my lashes as I apply AND the mascara holds a curl. No extra combing needed! I will openly admit that I absolutely love the brush. My lashes look clump free, separated and curled, and yes, it is waterproof. The reason I took off one lippie is because I can't put too much on my bottom lashes because like every other darn mascara, I will end up with smudge marks under my eyes. But as long as I keep the application to a minimum on the bottom lashes, I don't experience any running or smudging. It takes off fairly easily at night. I mean, it's really on there, but a good makeup remover wipe will take it off without ripping out your lashes.

Separates. Lengthens. Looks really natural.

Finally found my HG mascara. This makes my 55yr old short, fine lashes long and full. It doesn't smudge or budge-be prepared to use makeup remover to take it off at night!

I've been fixated on Mascaras recently as I had been aiming for a natural office look lately. I'm trying to go for the "sunblock-lipstick-eyeliner-mascara-groomed brows" only routine.
I bought a MAC Upward lash which was garbage, I also got the Max Factor Clump defy which was meh, the Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash volumizing mascara which was good but not exactly the look I was looking for.

This Mascara, the first time I used it, I really went "woooow!". Although it doesn't give that much volume, my lashes definitely looked thicker and groomed, and neatly brushed because of the awesome brush. I looooooove the brush. My lashes are volumized but no clumping until around the 4th or 5th application. My lashes looks amazingly separated as if I brushed/combed it. The best part, upon using it after an eyelash curler, the curl lasts the whole frickin' day! I applied it at 07:30am and even after jogging at 18:30, my lashes still look their best. Amazing product. I swear I'm repurchasing this after I run out.

I was at Shoppers Drug Mart, looking specifically Doritos and also for a black liquid eyeliner. I saw that this Butterfly mascara included a bonus eyeliner, so it was only 9.99 together. I was thinking wow that's a great deal. I bought it and the lovely cosmetics lady gave me a free bag for my chips and makeup. When I got home, I did not realize that the word "Diamantissime" on the eyeliner. So when I went to apply it on my eyes, it had glitter specks in it. That was not what I was looking for.
Anyways on to the mascara. The gold packaging is beautiful and makes it look luxurious. The wand is reminiscent to the Maybelline's lash sensational (which I love). They both had the same rubber winged shape head with four long bristles on each side, but the L'oreal one is definitely a bit more sharp. I stabbed my eye one while applying and it really hurt. I think this mascara is great for length only. After spending a good two minutes curling my eyelashes, the butterfly mascara just kills the curl. Bummer. On the bright side, the shorter bristles makes it easy to apply the bottom lash and the mascara is natural looking.

TLDR: I wanted an eyeliner but bought a mascara that kills a curl.

Hello, my new favorite mascara! I fell in love with the first application. I actually said "whoa" out loud at the mirror. Mascara NEVER works this well for me. My lashes are thin, sparse, and stick-straight. I always use a curler and always use waterproof mascara (most non-waterproof are so liquidy they uncurl my lashes). I've tried a gazillion mascaras and very few make the final cut (Maybelline Full & Soft, L'oreal Voluminous, and Covergirl Lashblast). The brush on this one is definitely interesting, and I was careful to position it properly. And oh boy, it separated, lengthened, and gave volume to my lashes. It even made the curl better. And it only took one coat for some serious va-voom. To add a second coat it needs to be done fairly quickly. If the first coat dries too much the second coat gets clumpy.

Once my mascara is applied, I generally coat my lashes with She-laq to keep them from smudging or wilting. The first day with this one I forgot and by the end of the day, my lashes were still perfect! Every day since I've been loving this mascara. To take it off, I use Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes. I hold one on my lids for a moment and gently rub the mascara away.

I can't believe how much I love this mascara.

First of all, the tube barrel is huge! The brush is huge as well and I think it's better for those who have longer lashes than I do. One side has very short rubber bristles which I use to apply my first coat. The opposite side has longer rubber bristles which I then use for the second coat and to separate the lashes. I have to be very careful for the second application because I do it on the top portion of the lashes which can touch my eyelid skin. BUT I must admit that my lashes do look great! I still prefer a small barrel, but this one is very good.

I live in the tropics where the temperature has been unusually hot and humid in the 90's. As with most mascara's I've used, this one is no different with some smudging on the bottom of my eyes. I use Almay oil mascara remover pads which gets off waterproof mascara's better than most.

Overall, I'm iffy on whether or not I'd repurchase only because of the huge brush. I suppose if I couldn't find something I like better I'd buy this one again.

I bought the non waterproof mascara. I never have trouble with non waterproof mascara rubbing or smudging off. This formula is very thin, light. Smudges off easily, have to apply more than 2 coats. I wont buy this again, but will wait to go back to my usual mascara (Covergirl Lash blast- Orange Tube or M.A.C. Hott and Naughty) after this runs out...If I can wait that long.

I liked how this made my lashes look. But I'm throwing it out. For whatever reason I always get at least 5-6 eyelashes fall out with this mascara. And only with this mascara. I know this bc I wear it when I want to really add some oomph, otherwise I wear a very natural looking mascara. I wore it last night and when I got home I had a clump of 3 lashes that fell out together. Like most women, I do not touch/rub my eyes when I'm wearing makeup. I can't imagine what would happen if I tried wearing this everyday.

My mother in law gave me this mascara and I didn't have high expectations. Boy was I surprised. I have very straight lashes that tend to fall down despite the best eyelash curler. With this my lashes are curled and separated until bedtime (or whenever I take off my makeup). Stays on during showers at the gym. Needs makeup remover to get it all off.
