Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara
I bought this product with high hopes, as I always am really trying to find a BE mascara that I love. When I opened the tube, I first thought: "yay! they finally got this right!" and it DID work that first time. After that, only clumpy, and it's not worth my time to de-clump the brush or my lashes, as I have other mascaras that DO NOT clump like that, especially on the brush. I had bought 2 tubes (promotion), and I thought, well, maybe it's just the one that is defective. Nope, they both acted the same way. I have a mini tube that came with another set of make up, and I'll try that before I give up.
I know everyone ELSE loves this but.....
I read the glowing reviews, all the sales people at the boutique are in love - etc etc etc. BUT, I can NOT apply this mascara with out getting that 'mascara line' on my eyelid riiiiiiiight above my eyelashes.
I have tried applying it several times, and at this point as I am WELL versed in mascara application, I have determined that this mascara is just not for me.
Maybe its my eyelash/lid shape, I have NO clue. All I know is that this mascara didn't do anything that the regular volumizing flawless def mascara did except make smudgey marks on my eyelid I had to go back and remove after application.
Ill stick to my other mascara from BE
I was so happy to find this product! After switching to all natural products, I was still hanging on to a certain XXL mascara but, it made my eyes water and caused me to lose lashes. Thanks to this product, I was able to toss the others and reclaim my mega watt lashes without irritation or lash loss! I'm in love and I'm not looking back!
I've used mascara from Bare Excentuals before and loved it. But this one leaves me with racoon eyes within the hour. Plus, I also find it hard to apply without dotting mascara on the lid of my eye and under my eyes. Very disappointeed!
Actually Love This!
I typically don't like BE mascaras. This has always saddened me because I love everything else they make. I am extremely brand loyal and want all my makeup to come from one brand. I was talked into this at a boutique. I am happy they did! The brush is so different and cool. My lashes look great and the best part......NO RACCOON EYES at the end of the day!! This is the first BE mascara that lasted all day without flaking and migrating to under my eyes. This is a home run!!! A great mascara to try and fall in love with!
This mascara is amazing!
I compared it to my usual waterproof mascara by putting it on one eye and my regular mascara on the other, and the difference was eye opening.
The bareMinerals mascara looked SO good! It made a HUGE difference in the length of my eyelashes, and using the tips for how to properly apply, it really helped to separate each lash and coat completely without clumping.
The only thing I wish I could change would be to make a waterproof version. That way, it wouldn't smudge or smear so easily. But, other than that, I'm totally in love with this mascara!
Takes a little patience
After trying the product and reading the reviews, I see that I'm not alone. I have thin, skimpy lashes, and the mascara fattens them up beautifully. My problem is the brush....I think it may be too big for tiny, short lashes like mine. If I'm REALLY careful...I can get it done without making a mess. But, I find as I work with and get used to the brush I'm more and more pleased!
I first tried this product in the store and was floored...it made my eyelashes look like I had fakes on...it was awesome. I waited impatiently for my store to finally get some in-stock...after several weeks. Now I've used it a couple weeks and given it a proper chance and it's not the same at all. It's VERY clumpy...I have to "brush" the clumps out of it daily. That has happened since day one. It also is not smudge proof at all...it starts to show under your eye in the afternoon. On those rare occasions that it's not clumpy, it does ALMOST perform as advertised #which is why it gets two stars instead of one#. But, I won't be purchasing this again. I had such high hopes, but it's not worth all the clumps, smudges and required hand acrobatics to apply.
As a result of the negative reviews for this formula, I went to the boutique intending to purchase my Flawless Def. However, the sales girl tested the Domination on me and talked me into it. I am already blessed with long thick lashes, so I don't expect miracles. All I want is something that goes on smoothly and lasts through a 10-hour day. I apply one coat to top and bottom lashes and have had no smudging issues in spite of very oily skin. I'm so glad I tried this formula. It's lighter, my lashes stay soft and pliable, and I think it washes off easier at the end of the day. The wand is a gimmick- I don't dislike it but I don't use any special technique for application. I believe this is an improvement over their other formulas.
I love this mascara! I was shocked the first time I tried just how long it makes your lashes look! I usually use two coat of it.
