Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara - null
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!
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
