I bought this thinking it would help hold a curl using any mascara. I was wrong. It helped only a little bit when using mascara like CG lash extension.For reference I have super staight lashes. But no real difference in that department (ie doesn't work miracles) I did however find less smudging and it did make my lashes seem more voluminous. I'm still debating whether it's worth …Read more

This is one of my favorite multipurpose hair products. I use this right as i'm about to run out the door in the morning. It really does control fly aways and adds shine to my coarse hair. I also have naturally straight hair and two pumps on the crown keeps my hair sleek. I love it! A little bit goes a long way applies here. Will repurchase.

It does scratch... almost pinch the skin. There is some shedding. But, i've found that after two thurough washes the bristles got softer. Ultimately, I switched to Target's bronzer brush. Would not purchase again.

IMO it does what it promises - it provides a matte finish w/ good sun protection. Plus, it's odorless. But, (i'm basically repeating what all the posters say below) it does ball up if you don't apply it quickly. You'll end up with residue all along the hairline. Now I just apply where it's most needed. Would not buy this product again.

I would call this brush average. I've had it for three months so far it hasn't shed too much. It's very soft, provides a good amount of coverage. However, I only use it with warmth and mineral veil.
<p>For those using MAC brush cleaner, I use this myself but only as a quick cleanser/disinfectant after application. Pour some on a paper towel and sweep the brush over it. …

It doesn't thicken lashes as it claims. I've had other drug store brands do better. Gave me racoon eyes at the end of the day. It seems as if you're not wearing mascara at all actually.

Will not purchase again.

I bought this mostly for the sunscreen and vit C combo. I use moisturizer sparingly, but it still seemed heavy. They're a little misleading about the products usage. Site says its for face and neck. It pretty much is a sunscreen, it has the consistency and smell of one. For the price, I could buy 3 times as much REAL suncreen. Would not buy again.

These combination products dont really work most of the time. But I thought I would give this a try since I am a Maybelline fan. In terms of smudge-proof and 12hr wear, it seems to work. But it didn't do much for lengthening. It actually weighed down my lashes after curling. This product is average in my opinion.

It doesn't give the volume you would expect. Just a big clumpy mess.The 'spider eye' look at best. I use mascara after curling my lashes, this kept them from staying curled. I guess you could try other techniques like the previous posters. Would not buy again.

Like everyone else, I had high hopes for this improved version. I completely agree with what the previous posters say. Ignore this product and stick with the original. It really isn't any better. Its consistency is very thin and it shows on lashes. You might get an effect from applying more than you usually would. Other than that, its not worth the money. Will not be repurchasing.
