Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara - null
Terrible tube design wastes product
I received this full-sized tube as a complimentary gift or it would have gone right back to my nearest BE store. Perhaps mine was faulty, but a HUGE amount of product came out on the brush each time I pulled the wand from the tube, forcing me to wipe most of it off on a Kleenex before applying it to my lashes. We are talking A LOT of mascara on the wand. After a few gloopy, clumpy applications I was able to figure out just how much product to remove from the brush (about 3/4 of it) and was fairly happy with the results. I saw a little bit of curling as well as some nice definition and lengthening of my individual lashes, and was pleased with the brown shade. I would not buy another tube for the amount of wasted product per use unless the tube design problem were fixed.
Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara
I don't care much for this mascara.
1. The brush is poorly designed - there is a 1/8" space at the tip with no bristles at all, and when the bristles do start, the first 3-4 rows are so short that once the mascara is loaded onto the wand, the bristles are covered over. This makes it extremely hard to get into the inner corners of my eyes to apply product to the very fine lashes there without getting smears of mascara on the lids.
2. By the end of the day, my eyes frequently get a mild burning sensation, esp. if my eyes water for whatever reason, causing the product to soften/run slightly. My eyes don't burn with other brands that I use. I find that very odd.
I do not use an eyelash curler, but when I do press the wand onto the tips of my lashes to curve them slightly, they do seem to stay.
I have the brown, and it is a nice soft color - dark without being harsh like black can sometimes look.
Slightly curled and lengthened my lashes , great product.
Best Mascara Ever
I am obsessed with this mascara-Best one I have ever tried, will never try another brand. Doesn't burn and sting when washing it off if any gets in your eyes-makes my lashes look amazing!
One of my top 5 fave mascaras
I love this mascara because it goes on so smooth and gently and really does get my eyelashes to curl just a little bit. But really what I love about it on top of that is the fact that it doesn't feel like i just put glue on my eyelashes. My eyelashes are still soft and flexible and never flake. So i feel like this mascara isn't hurting my eyelashes and it does a pretty decent job of doing what it says it will do!
Now I love me some Bare Escentuals...
...but every time I use this mascara...my eyes get pink. I'm not even stabbing my eye or aiming to get any in...it just insanely irratates my eye. Today was the 6th day (you'd think I'd learn sooner) that I used it (looks amazing) but then my eye is now bright pink. No other eye makeup just the mascara...dig everything else...just this item is NOT for my eyes.
LOVE this mascara
This is probably the BEST mascara BE has put forth! It really does lengthen the lashes and gives it a slight curl. I use this on top of the volumizing mascara to achieve a full effect
My new favorite mascara
I LOVE this mascara! My eyelashes look super long after I apply it. It also gives nice definition to my eyelashes. After discovering this mascara, I am hooked.
Worth the money
Something about quality cosmetics makes spending $18 on a mascara totally worth it. If you spend $7 on a drugstore mascara, you're more than likely going to get what you pay for. In my own experiences, anyway. I find this to be particularly true with flawless def curl & lengthen mascara. It does NOT flake all over your face, thickens but doesn't clump, doesn't give you creepy Liza Minnelli eyes (although some people strive to get that look). It separates your lashes without being "pokey" and, my favorite quality, dries quickly. No more mascara dotting on your crease line. You do have to be careful because it isn't an instant dry, but it's definitely not as wet as some other mascaras. It will hold up in light rain or tears (because, let's face it, women cry :)) yet it comes off easily with remover or BE purifying facial cleanser. I didn't expect a HUGE curling effect because I have never found a mascara that worked in place of a curler, but it does provide a soft bend to your lashes. I was initially drawn to this one as the wand was similar in shape to Buxom's. Buxom, unfortunately, is only available at Sephora. I like to do one-stop shopping so I was pleased that BE released their own version I could buy with my other fave cosmetics. I have no complaints, whatsoever, with this mascara and intend to use it as long as BE makes it!
No Curling Here
While this is a nice mascara, I didn't notice any curling effects with it...I have to use an eyelash curler on my lashes because they just aren't that long and wont automatically curl when I apply mascara. I still needed to use my lash curler when using this mascara. I still ♥ BE though, just not this mascara. :-)
I finally found my permanent mascara
Anyone with small eye lashes like mine should try this mascara. It lengthens my lashes perfectly and doesn't clump. Although it does curl my lashes after I apply it, the curl doesn't stay very long. I wish it came in waterproof and maybe that will help.
