Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara - Black
First mascara product I purchased!
So I wanted to start using mascara but I wasn't sure which brand I wanted to try first. I decided to check out the Bare Minerals boutique that's at the mall near my school.. One of the girls did my mascara in a natural-looking way because I didn't want too much to be on my lashes since I'm starting out. It turned out great and I felt good about it! My mom's not much of a makeup wearer anymore and she never liked eye makeup and she was apprehensive about me starting to use eyeliner and mascara, but it turned out great and she liked the end result. Bonus points for mom's approval :)
Great for my allergy eyes
I wear this mascara everyday and love the fact that it doesn't aggravate my horribly eye allergies. The waterproof formulation also helps when my allergies are already messed up and watery. This mascara stays put all day. I have forgotten to take it off at night and when I got up the next morning I had flakes on my face, but never during the day whilst wearing it. I guess after 18 hours you would expect it to flake at some point. I have seen several comments on clumping, but I've never had a problem with it.
I've been using this mascara for years and it works great in terms of it actually being waterproof. I've gone swimming with it on and it does not run, streak or smudge. However, in recent shipments the mascara I've been receiving have been terrible. It clumps right there within the tube and on the wand. The product itself collects at the neck of the tube so whenever I insert the wand back in, the products squishes out when I screw the wand back into the tube making a huge mess, and as a result the wand tip gets all goopy when pulling it out of the tube. I want to continue loving this mascara but its quality has really gone downhill the past 2 years.
My favorite Mascara
I have tried all types of mascara. This is my most favorite. It never clumps. It goes on nicely. it is truly waterproof, but comes off nicely with wash. It never comes off onto my eyelids. My eyelashes look as good 10 hours later as they did when I first applied the mascara.
Worst mascara ever - totally dried out!
This mascara was included in a set purchased from this site a few weeks ago. The mascara appears to be completely dried out by its first use despite the fact that I never opened it before the first use.
I usually like mascaras with the shorter, more precise brushes; too bad I could barely scrape out any actual product to use! Either it's the worst formula ever, or the handling of it was poor. Either way, this product is worthless.
Waterproof version left clumpy flakes under eyes
I ordered a combo package that came with two of what I thought were Flawless Definition mascaras, my favorite. However, they were the waterproof version. I tried them anyway, and both mascaras left clumps in my eyelashes and flakes under my eyes. I have been using Flawless Definition for years, but this version is gross. Perhaps the mascaras were old, as they were part of a deal, and may have been sitting around awhile since they clumped like old mascara. What a disappointment. I had to throw away 2 brand new mascaras because they were clumpy and flaky.
Very Natural looking lashes!
I have been wanting to write a review about this mascara for sometime now. I love this waterproof mascara. I am like many other ladies out there. I was always looking for the perfect one. Been wearing this one almost everyday since it made it's debut on a famous home shopping network that bareMinerals is associated with. It applies easily, stays put and comes off easily with makeup remover. I am an older lady who has watery eyes. Doesn't irriatate my sensitive eyes nor does it run down my face. The best part is that my lashes look natural because it doesn't apply thick or heavy on my lashes. The search is over. Thank you bareMinerals.
Best waterproof mascara on the market, and I have tried them all. Can't do without this product.
Although I am pleased the product is gentle, I am disappointed over all. It gets clumpy quite quickly so the application is less than desirable. I have tried the techniques shown, but it does not help a lot. The mascara also tends to flake. That neither looks or feels very good. It does smear as well, but it is not claimed to be smug proof. I use quite a few of the BareMineral products and do like them, but this is not one of them.
Definitely My FAVORITE OF ALL
This is the best mascara I've tried. It doesn't clump at all. The brush is awesome! I love it so much that I've repurchased it twice already! It's definitely worth every penny! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I have thin lashes and most mascara will eventually clump on me. My favorite by far is the expresso flawless definition, it would be nice if the waterproof came in expresso. Anyway, this does go on fine for me. I do have to dab the brush on a small piece of TP or tissue to get some of the excess off - I do this for just about any mascara I have ever used. This does not flake yet it's not as waterproof as I'd like. I have had my tube for about 2-3 weeks now and it is not clumping or oozing out like it did on another reviewer. Perhaps a bad batch was made? All in all I am pleased with the purchase.
This is by far the worst mascara I have ever purchased. The only reason I haven't returned it is because I can't find the receipt. The first day I tried it, it did a really good job. After that, the mascara did not work well with me at all. I'm no expert at applying mascaras but I have tried way better cheaper brands. This mascara clumps up really bad and that is not something I am used to in a mascara. I think it is because of the waterproof formula used for this one. I will think about purchasing one that is not waterproof next time to test it out AND make sure I keep up with the box and receipt so I can return it if it doesn't work for me.
Love this mascara!
This is a perfect waterproof mascara. Goes on clump free and the wand helps separate even the tiniest lashes. Just ensure you replace every 3-6 months, if you don't it starts to clump.
This has been the worst mascara I've ever used. The first one I bought was perfect, but the second one was clumpy from the second application on. So, I thought the second one might just have been bad and I'd give it another try. But the third one has been even worse. This time it started out clumpy and has been getting worse. The first time I closed it I didn't realize that it had oozed out the side - what a mess. That has continued to happen with each application. Also, it goes on in huge clumps and looks awful. I finally had time to buy a different brand and can now throw this away. I do love Bare Mineral products and having this happen has been very disappointing.
I love the wand! I am older and have trouble with the large brushes. The applicator is exact and the mascara is sooooo easy to apply. It really does stay put until you remove it. No smearing with wear. The mascara looks as good at the end of the day as it does when you first apply it. What wonderful product!
I CAN NOT Live without this product!!!!
This has to be the best Mascara I have used in a long time. It has staying power, rich intense black color. Just do not rub your eyes when wet - crying and swimming. Dab your eyes or use a clean finger wipe across in one direction it will not run.
absolute fav mascara
No flakes, no clumps, lashes fan out and are instantly longer and defined. This mascara really lasts all day. Works well if I'm wearing contacts or glasses with no itching or burning ever. The brush is a bit different from what you're used to seeing but use it just like any mascara. I knew this was a winner when someone told me "wow your lashes are so long!" No mention of mascara (yes! or makeup woohoo!)
Perfect for Allergies
This product is great! It is truly waterproof and doesn't flake off (unless you're picking at your eyelashes). I have terrible allergies and my eyes are either watering or I have to put in drops. I don't look like a raccoon afterwards at all. It also doesn't make my eyes itch like some other products.
Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara - Black
I had totolly switched all my make up and cleansing items to BE. The only thing that I did try was the mascara. I purchased the waterproof mascarra at my local BE Boutique. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!! It lengthens and separates just like it says it does. And I find that I don't really need to use an eyelash curler!!
The IT Mascara!!
Better than any mascara I've had in a long time possibly ever. Is it the brush, the formula the combination of the two ... who knows it's great. It lengthens without clumping! No clumps! And absolutely no FLACKING even when I use primer! It comes off with water and a light cleanser. I don't need some special formula that can lift tar off a road to get it off. It dries in a timely manner too, so I can do my bottom lashes and not have spiders on my eyelids, yippee. This product makes me very happy. If someone said I had to take only one make up piece with me and leave the rest - this would be the item I take with me.
Thank you BE!
Mascara-Flawless Definition Waterproof, Black
I am not sure why this mascara would get anything less than 5 stars. It's so potent. I don't know if I would swim for hours with it, but I've worn it crying and in the rain and it does its job. Also, this is one of the few waterproof mascaras that I've found that goes on like a regular mascara. This one goes on just like the Flawless Definition Mascara.
Does not live up to description
I find this mascara to be exactly opposite of it's product description. The brush barely gets to the lashes so there is no definition. Application is very flakey and continues to flake throughout the day.
Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara - Black
I absolutely love Bare Minerals products. I have oily and sweaty skin as well as, watery eyes. In the sunlight my eyes water, or even in certain dim lights. I wore waterproof because the smudge proof was not smudge proof. However, this waterproof mascara has not proven me waterproof. I usually have a black smudge under my eye by the end of my work day which is only 6 hours long. I love the color and the brush as it goes on so nice.
not overly impressed
I have tried this mascara twice and am still disappointed. I find that it flakes going on making even application difficult. It is waterproof and does not smudge but at the end of the day some of it has flaked or worn off. Although the end of the day look may not be fresh, it is at least, not messy (e.g. raccoon eyes).
No clumps thank goodness
No clumps, goes on easily, still noticeable. I love it.
Really good for defining your eyelashes. Doesn't dry out in time. Great for a natural look and formula is build-able. It also does a well job of lengthening.
Waterproof mascara bad for sensitiive eyes
I have sensitive eyes. Afterr 20 years of no eye make, I discoverd Bare minerals. I can now wear shadow, eyeliner, eye primer, mascara, and am thrilled. I have have been using flawless definition mascara for my spindly eyelashes with great success. I have watery eyes so decided to try the water proof mascara. It must have a completely different formulation as from the moment I applied it my eyes, it my eys became irritated, more watery, and uncomfortable. I kept it on for the 1 day, and 2 weeks later I can still feel the ill effects on my eyes. I will be a flawless definition mascara user forever. I wasted my money on something I thought would be better. Love all the other products!
Never thought I'll find the one
I'm Asian and my lashes don't take a curl so I used to load up on curling formula or have them permed. This usually results in irritation and my lashes falling out (yikes). But after trying this on, I'm hooked. I just use a lash curler then apply this, and my curl stays on and my lashes look long and lush, not spidery nor clumpy. My eyes don't get irritated and I don't get raccoon rings anymore. The brush grabs and coats every lash cleanly so they appear fuller, more defined. I don 't think I will ever use another mascara. And by the way, I pool and tear tested this one, it stays.
I have used this mascara for about 2 weeks now and have to say I am not impressed. I get raccoon eyes midway through the day. I intentionally do not apply to my bottom lashes and I still have to make the midday trip to the bathroom to remove the smudges. I don't over apply either, usually just make one pass over the lashes. This is the first time I have had an issue with any BareMinerals product.
Easy on easy off
I love this waterproof mascara! It goes on easy & doesn't clump up. It hold up well in the pool, spa, sauna but comes off easy without scrubbing to hard. I use a gentle non oily facial soap that doesn't sting the eyes & it comes off just fine. You don't need special makeup remover or anything like some waterproof things I've tried.
This is a great everyday mascara but I do find it lacking a bit when Im going for a full out drama night look. I tend to use a different mascara for that UNLESS I'm using fake lashes then I still use this one.
