Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara
The sales associate raved about this product but when I tried it at home it did exactly what she claimed it wouldn't: clumpy, spidery lashes that felt heavy and crusty. Will be returning this.
Love and hate this mascara
I absolutely love how this mascara goes on and how it looks on my lashes! The applicator is perfect. It is dark and glossy. But there is a major problem; this mascara just doesn't dry! It smudges and smears throughout the day. I have to continually wipe it off my lids and under my eyes. And even though it easily strays out of place, it is very difficult to get off! Like I said, it doesn't seem to really dry so it is still tacky when I want to take it off. I really love how this mascara looks so I hope a formula is created that produces the same look but not smeary and tacky.
Lash Domination 10 in 1 - Great, but smudges
I bought this product and used it in various scenarios, wedding, all day, at night, during the heat, etc... This works as well as it said, but the only problem is that it smudges under the eye within 2 hours.
This would have gotten 5 stars if it did not smudge so badly. Please think about revising the formula where no smudging occurs.
LOVE the applicator, HATE the formula.
The applicator for this product is probably the best mascara wand I have ever used. It is AWESOME. The formula is clumpy, smudgy, and flakey, though I liked how pigmented it was. So sad.
Leaves much to be desired
This mascara was great the first couple of times I used it. However, after a few uses the formula thickened and little flecks formed in the tube, which causes massive clumping and the undesired "spider leg" lash look. I have to comb my lashes repeatedly with a spoolie brush in order to separate the clumps before it dries. This is not what I expect from a mascara with this price tag! It's a shame because the volume and jet black color were incredible the first few uses. Also, it is very difficult to remove. My usual eye makeup remover was no match for it, despite being powerful enough to remove previously used quality mascara formulations. I am left with raccoon eyes after the first attempt to remove it, which is not good since I try to avoid tugging at or disturbing my eye area as much as possible.
Definitely the best mascara I've ever used.
I bought this because the saleswoman told me it wouldn't clump, wouldn't smudge, and went on smoothly. It was awful. Very, very clumpy, and at the end of the day, I had raccoon eyes. Very difficult to get off. The brush is so thick and clumsy, that you can't' get to the corners of your eyes. I hate it. Going back to my old mascara.
I made the switch!
I received a sample of this mascara with a starter kit about 2 months ago- wow! When my sample ran out I tried to switch back to my drugstore mascara and could not deal. I literally got in the car as soon as my mascara was dry to go pick up the full size Lash Domination. I love that it gives my skimpy lashes volume and length while keeping them soft. They never look crusty or crunchy and they really pop with a curler! Best part is I've been able to scrap my eye makeup remover all together- this mascara washes off with a little coconut oil and a wipe at the end of my cleansing.
My only whisper of a complaint is that it takes a little longer to dry so I have to really wait a while to curl my lashes. Other than that, it has held up in humidity and rain without transferring- a huge deal with my oily skin!
One product at a time bareMinerals is making me switch- this is just the most recent in my growing collection! (Seriously my bathroom looks like a bareEscentuals boutique...)
Normally I do not wear mascara that isn't waterproof, but I LOVE Lash Domination!
I received a sample with an order and tried it and loved the look and feel of the mascara. I'm a redhead, so my lashes are practically invisible, but with this mascara they shine! It took a use or two to get the hang of proper use of the wand, but once I did my lashes looked amazing.. unfortunately I did have problems with raccoon eyes. I found Locked and Coated waterproofing so I ordered it along with a the mascara and haven't had a problem since!
Mascara To Avoid
I bought this product after I went in to a boutique to see if they still had the travel size combo pack of flawless definition and flawless definition volumizing mascaras (which I LOVED). Since they were discontinued, the sales girl highly recommend this as a replacement.
It's among the worst of the mascaras I've tried.
I found both the full size tube and the travel size to have the same issues: the formula is so thick it clumps easily, glues lashes together and goes on too heavy. The more you build up coverage trying to remedy the issues, the more caked on it looks. There is no separation, thickening and lengthening. Also I found that after switching from the pressed powder to the liquid BE foundation, this mascara began to transfer to the skin under my eyes when I squeezed my eyes shut, like during a sneeze. I experimented with not using any liner/shadow/mascara on my lower lashes to see if that was the issue, and it still kept transferring. I thought I was getting sick - no, it was this mascara. If you watch any of the video tutorials when they use this mascara, you can see the issues I'm explaining here - the lashes are glued together, clumpy and too heavy with product. Furthermore I found if something were on my lashes, like a hair, fuzz, etc, when trying to remove the foreign object I would inadvertently glue those lashes together because the formula is still gooey, hours later! (I'm thinking this is why it transferred). I use cleansing cloths at night to remove make-up and it took forever to get all the mascara off.
I've since ditched this formula and went back to the flawless definition.
Let me just say that I am on a quest and intend on trying every mascara on the BE line to figure out which is my favorite. I've also only used to sample size so far (it's been over two weeks of use, and still going strong). So far, this is definitely my favorite :)
My favorite part of this mascara is the fact that when I remove my eye make up at night, I don't lose any eye lashes (a chronic problem I've had with drugstore brands). It lifts and separates my lashes so they get horizontal volume and look full, while also giving them length and curl. It seriously does everything! As soon as my sample size runs out, I will be purchasing a full-size tube for sure. I tried to take a picture to share, but I am absolutely terrible at taking selfies.
Maybe I'm just lucky, but I haven't had any of the problems that other reviewers complained about (clumpiness, racoon eyes, overly dramatic look). When I first pull the brush out, I will wipe off any excess. Then I use the brush on both eyes (upper & lower lashes) without redipping it (one coat only), and I find that I can get the natural, sexy lashes that I want. If I want a more dramatic look for going out, or just for funsies, then I'll apply a few coats (still not redipping the wand). It does take time to properly apply the mascara (as does all BE mascaras from my experience), and I am by no means an expert. But for me, wiping off the excess and not redipping the wand have been two key tactics that I found very helpful.
I like this formula. Goes on smooth, no clumps no lumps. Builds beautiful lashes. What I don't like is the hard plastic brush. I hurt myself constantly. I will stick with curl and lengthen. The brush works great. Bare Escentuals makes fabulous mascara.
Love the Flawless Definition Mascara Better
I tried this mascara and it is not for me. I do believe it's a great mascara but it's just too much for this stay-at-home mom. I absolutely love the Flawless Definition line of mascara. The Flawless Definition is just the right amount of color and product per application for me. The lash domination lives up to it's name but I prefer the natural look when it comes to my eyes.
Best High End Mascara!
I tried this impulsively at Sephora the other day and was surprised to find how amazing it was. It curled my lashes and lengthened them and kept them looking natural, but fabulous. I've had no issues with clumping or smudging and will definitely be using this mascara for a long time! Great job, Bare Minerals! :D
It seemed really good in the store, but if you are looking for a mascara that is easy and fast to apply, I wouldn't recommend this. Goes on clumpy and smudges frequently. It makes your lashes look good if applied correctly, but correct application is hard to master. There are other mascaras that do the same thing with less trouble.
I'm shocked to read bad reviews about this mascara. I love it! I've always used a cheap, convenience store brand prior to this and the difference is outstanding. Definitely recommend!
I had such high hopes for this mascara, after seeing all the good things this website says. It does give fantastic volume, length, thickness, and separates like no other mascara I have tried, but I can not love this at all, because an hour after applying, I had raccoon eyes :( I still am on my quest for my holy grail mascara... on to the next!
I bought 3 of these at separate times for me and my girls and it is the worst mascara.
It leaves massive clumps in your eyelashes. Even if you try to work it up and down really good. It gets in your eyes and you feel like your blind.
I thought it might be old but I bought it at the Bare Escentuals store so I can't imagine it would be. Each one I bought was the same way.
This is a inferior product that should be removed from the line of. However, I love all the other mascara's from Bare Escentuals.
Protects eyelashes, but...
I purchased this mascara for the 10-in-1 benefits. Unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed. The mascara smudges under my lower lashes and I don't typically wear mascara there. I will be sticking with the Flawless mascara...
Best Mascara I have used in a while
I don't understand the reviews saying it is clumpy or smudgy. I got this as a sample and wow! Makes my lashes look amazing. No clumps, no smudges. Am ordering a regular size as we speak.
I love the way it looks when you first put it on, but it will smudge and leave nasty smudges under your lower lashes even if you don't use it there making you appear rather sleepy or hungover after just a few hours of wear. Overall it's pretty decent and doesn't make my eyes itch and no clumps yet for me like other reviewers. I would say 9-in-1 not 10-in-1 product
This mascara is perfection in a shiny tube. Hands down the best mascara of all time - I'm constantly complimented on how beautiful my eye lashes are and even have people asking me if they're false lashes. DEFINITELY worth every penny.
Love this mascara but...
they really need to make a waterproof one. this is my go to mascara, but i wish i could have it in waterproof.
Resists clumps-clumps more than the drug store brand I use; Fights flakes-flakes and gets in my eyes, which is painful. I tried numerous times but ended up throwing it away; I'm so disappointed because I wanted my entire makeup collection to be bare escentuals products. Nothing can be perfect though!
I LOVE this mascara!!
I received a sample of Lash Domination when i purchased the new BareSkin Foundation (which i also LOVE by the way!). I usually never try new mascaras since I've been using the L'Oreal Voluminous for 15 years! However, i've recently been trying to be more congnisant of what I'm putting on my face (ie. all of the harsh chemicals). Knowing Bare Minerals puts less of all of those crazy chemicals into their products, I thought it was worth a definite shot to try on this new mascara. When I tried it on, i was absolutely SHOCKED! My eyelashes were long, thicker and looked NATURAL. I knew it was an instant hit as soon as I tried it on. I really never thought any other mascara would come close to the one i used before, but this one does PLUS it provides healthier ingredients. Definitely try this mascara!! Thank you Bare Minerals for providing us with healthier makeup options!
I LOVE Bare Minerals makeup, but I'm HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED in this mascara. The first time I used it I thought maybe I had gotten an old tube. Just bought it again and I was wrong. It's super clumpy and smudges on your upper lid as soon as you put it on. I'm going to try and take this one back being that I just bought it and Have used it only a few times. $18 is a lot to pay for clumpy, smudgy mascara.
I fell in love with the Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara by BM, so much that I would stock up on it during sales. I am a religious BM user and I love everything they come out with so when this mascara came out, I also stocked up on that. My first tube became clumpy with in the first couple days of use and even smudged off on my upper lid, but I continued to use it hoping that it would get better. I had to get through a tube of my Flawless Definition mascara before I opened this one so I figured it was old and threw it out to open a new one. Nope, that one is clumpy and smudgy as well. I am so disappointed with the money I spent on this mascara when I should have just stuck to my drugstore brand.
I used only one gentle coat. I have long lashes, no clump or build up. Just one coat kept my lashes natural. I don't like to layer with more then one coat. Thank you bareMinerals.
I just received a sample of this in a recent purchase and I was blown away after the first 2 swipes. It looked like I had applied 3 coats of my regular mascara. It lengthened my lashes like crazy and added quite a bit of volume. I've only been wearing it for about an hour but so far I'm super impressed. I think I'll definitely be buying the full size... Unless it smudges like crazy but it's not supposed to!
not worth it
When I got this, I was so excited because I had heard good things about it. So I tried it out, and loved it: it gave my lashes that coal black color with volume and length, but after an hour or so, I looked in the mirror and I had black smudges on my top lid, doesn't usually happen. I was very disappointed, but I found a better mascara that does the exact same things and doesn't smear (tarte 4 in 1 mascara).
