This mascara didn't work for me!
This is the only Bare Escentuals product that I have ever been disappointed in! I have tried using this mascara several times since receiving it, and I have had no success. I have tried the "blink method" described in other reviews. The mascara didn't give me any sort of coverage. I would not recommend it to anyone, nor will I purchase it in the future.
Worst mascara wand ever
I bought this and tried using it over and over, but I have never had a satisfactory result. No matter how many "layers" I try to apply, my lashes do not look any different. Perhaps I don't know the right "technique" --- I read a review that refers to a "blink" technique that seems to work for her. I will try to figure out how to do that technique. At this point I cannot recommend this product, and I do not plan to order again.
I love just about everything I've ever purchased from Bare Minerals, but this product completely disappointed me. It doesn't come close to coating my lashes, no matter how hard I work.
Still Searching for Perfect Mascara
After reading the reviews I though this would work for me; but, no. The brushless format just didn't cover my short lashes. Added no volume, no length, no coverage. It did make my short lashes show up though. And, the lashes being so short, was not becoming. So I am back to my search for the perfect mascara.
What the heck
I read through pages of reviews for this product, and saw nearly no negative comments. After using the product for myself, I don't know how that could be. I received it in the mail earlier today, and after thoroughly cleaning off my current mascara, I applied the brushless as instructed. "Clumpy" is not the phrase I would use. I would put this product under the categories of "sticky" and "messy." I won't even complain about how this product isn't waterproof (although, come on! What isn't nowadays?), but I have to say that I don't understand how a brushless mascara can have this effect. My eyelashes immediately started sticking together. They looked oddly thick and cakey with this product. I'll try again tomorrow, the next day, and the day after that, but I highly doubt my results will improve. I beg of you, DO NOT waste your money on this product.
Perfect for Sparse Lashes
First purchase from BE. Lost hair to chemotherapy. When lashes first growing in, this was the only mascara I could use because lashes were shorter than any brush. Now that lashes have returned, still my favorite mascara. Bonus: Introduction to other fabulous BE products.
Great alone or as a lashline enhancer with other BE or Buxom mascaras. I use this product alone when I want dramatic lashes. When I want to bump up my lashline - I apply my other BE / Buxom mascara first in the usual way - then finish off by lifting at the eyebrow and placing the wand at the eyelash base only - makes lashes look thicker, fills in gaps, looks like eyeliner. I hope this product never get discontinued.
When I saw this I was intrigued. I am always on the prowl for a new mascara. When you get it home and you open it, you will notice that the wand has little grooves in it. It's not a smooth stick. There is a trick to getting this to work. Hold the wand close to your eye and "Blink" into the wand. This technique was taught to me and is the best one. The tip of the wand is small enough to help you get the really teeny lashes. I wish this came in a waterproof formula and it would be my "Go to". The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is that I find that BE mascaras tend to "Raccoon" on me as the day progresses. I work a grueling 10 hour day with no time to touch up. For shorter days, I LOVED this Mascara. Really love the brushless design. Woo! =D
I was using a "brand" that had a comb applicator that I absolutely loved and they discontinued it. I've been trying various mascaras just to pitch them in the trash. Saw this and decided to give it a try and WOW, it's just what I needed. Now that I have found this product, I hope, it too, will NOT be discontinued.
Please, Please never discontinue this mascara!!!
I have tried many different mascaras and each time I put it on I end up with a humdrum...eh, so-so. I ordered this mascara on a whim, and thought that if it didn't work it was just another mascara that ended up in the trash. The first time I put it on it didn't look so hot, and I thought well this isn't going to work either. How was a brushless mascara going to work anyway? I tried it a second time, and it looked AMAZING!! The first thing you need to know is how to put it on and after that it's great!! It seperates the lashes, and doesn't clump. It stays on without smearing during the day and is easy to get off!! I am in love!
