Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara - null
Not at all what I thought it would be
Let me start off by saying that I do use some bare minerals products and I like them. I have been searching for a high quality mascara for a while now. My lashes are long but straight and if I want them to have any kind of curl I need to use a lash curler. In the past I've had success with using brands such as Maybeline waterproof mascara as it always held the curl of my lash beautifully. I thought this mascara would do the same. I went about curling my lash as I normally do and began applying the mascara. Immediately the lashes looked great...then over the course of the next 30 minutes the lashes deflated and sank like droopy willow branches. It was a HUGE disappointment. I can easily spend under $10 for mascara that I know will hold the curl beautifully, but i chose to try a new product and it didn't work.
I've been searching high and low for a mascara that I love. Found it! This mascara is easy to apply (no need to comb lashes after to separate) and looks great! It's not spidery or bulky at all. It does give lashes a little lift, not necessarily a "curl", but that's fine with me. I love it!
This mascara is the all time worse mascara I have ever used. It clumps, takes forever to dry and the wand is too thin and small. Don't bother with this product.
For years I had to curl my lashes and wear waterproof mascara to get pretty eyelashes. Not anymore. Ever since my BFF introduced me to BM, I discovered this mascara and you can say my eyelashes have been free of the eyelash curler.....I don't need it anymore, this mascara gives me perfect eyelashes. Thank you so much BM!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
OH MY GOODNESS
best mascara ever!
okay so at first when i tried this mascara i didn't like it because i thought it looked clumpy and i did it wrong!.. but i loved it when the worker at bare minerals put t on me. i was going to return it then decided..eh.. ill give it another try and I LOVED IT!!! what i do now when i get a new mascara it i put it on and if it looks to clumpy i brush it out with one of those testing mascara wands witch you can basically get at any beauty supply store.
ANYWAYS this mascara is A M A Z I N G it really does lift up your lashes and really lengthens them they actually look better on bare lashes than when i curl them! but t still looks like i curled them! also it really separates your lashes (:
THE VERY BEST MASCARA I HAVE EVER USED!!
I have blue eyes with long lashes which used to be longer. I most always have worn black or brown black mascara, non - waterproof. Clinique quit making my favorite "Long Pretty Lashes" several years ago, I stocked up wherever I could find it for sale on the internet, but eventually it couldn't be located. So I started my search for a new brand. I went to the Nordstrom website (free shipping and free returns) and put all of the lengthening mascara brands in my cart. I ordered them one by one , brand after brand, priced all the way up to $42 per tube! I even bought some drug store brands. They all failed! I know I am picky but I feel that a mascara is an important cosmetic that can make or "break" the way you look. Do I want long pretty lashes that accentuate my eyes? Yes! Do I want mascara that clumps or flakes or gives you black shadows under your eyes? NO!! I also used to have to put an eyelash primer on before mascara with my Clinique favorite and with other mascaras for condiditioning properties. As soon as I tried on the BE C& L mascara I couldn't believe it!! It went on a little wet but with slow application it smooths out on your lashes wonderfully. I also have an eyelash comb to separate lashes in case I go over board because they keep getting longer and longer with each sweep of the brush. I cannot believe how nice this looks on and NO OTHER mascara that I have tried is lengthening compared to this! It removes so easily with my makeup remover on a cotton pad. It is really, really great!! I do not have to use a primer!! or a lash conditioner or really to even reapply during the day. (unless, I have been crying, etc). I do have an application suggestion. Apply mascara to each lash area til they look the way you want (comb through it if you over did it). Let dry and curl more if you like. Proceed to other lash areas. Once the mascara is dry you really can't add any more. I hope you try it and love it as much as I do!! Oh yeah..BE please don't change or discontinue!! Thanks for this wonderful, wonderful product.
This is the first and only mascara I have used from Bare Minerals so far. It does EXACTLY what it claims to. It curls my lashes upwards so that my eyes look wider, brighter, and more open (a must since I am in a constant sleep-deprived state). It also makes them look VERY long. I swear I didn't even know my lashes could look that long. No flakes either, and very easy to remove. Happy happy customer :)
My only complaint (and the reason I gave it four stars instead of five) is that even though it doesn't *look* clumpy, while I'm applying it I can see my lashes getting sort-of stuck together. I wish there was more horizontal volume in the mascara so that my eyelashes looked fuller. The brush is a little different; it's contoured, so it is bigger on the ends and smaller in the middle (imagine a tiny little hourglass as the end of your wand). I'm thinking this is the reason why my lashes stick together, because there aren't enough bristles to coat each lash individually. But the contoured brush does help to get those hard-to-reach inner and outer lashes.
Over all, it does make my eyes look AMAZING, even if I wear no shadow or liner. The mascara makes my green eyes pop and stand out. I would definitely purchase again. But I just got a sample of the lash domination with my last order, so if it gives me that fuller volume horizontally that I like, I'll probably switch to that.
My new favorite
So I've been griping about BE a lot lately with the discontinuation of some favorites. I've used the regular Flawless Definition in Espresso for some time and loved it but decided to try this curl & lengthen just for the fun of it. Glad I did. The curling isn't drastic but it's enough to make my eyelashes much more noticeable than they were. Short of doing a side-by-side with the two FD mascaras, I don't know if it lengthens more. I think it gives my lashes a little more volume than the other, as well. But again, haven't done a side-by-side. Both FD mascaras keep my rather sparse but very long lashes from clumping together and looking spiky. Very pleased with this product.
It does what it says but its goopy too!
This product just comes out very thick and goopy. After applying it you will have to "brush" the excess out of your eyelashes. The mascara cakes onto the brush and i try to avoid wasting it by applying it very lighly then using a seperate brush to move the mascara to the rest of my eyelashes... which i think might be a bit much to do for mascara.. but it does curl and lengthen them.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
This is my all time favorite mascara. It works really well with my naturally long, but very fine lashes that are barely there without mascara. With mascara, people ask if I'm wearing fake lashes. And this enhances them without looking too crazy, just beautiful. However, I feel like this mascara doesn't get enough love by BE, like it came out, was advertised a few times then they forgot about it. I'm not a huge fan of any of the other BE mascaras. Flawless Definition is too thin, Volumizing didn't do much either, and Lash Domination is really over-rated in my opinion, it takes too long to set and I always end up messing up my lashes when wearing it. For me, Curl & Lengthen is by far the best BE makes, and is my all time favorite mascara. I HIGHLY recommend!
