Lash Domination Volumizing 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).
Very very very pleased
I have really short brown and uneven eyelashes and they can never fully get the length that I would like..... ....until now. I L-O-V-E this mascara, it's lengthening and curling and I feel like I had my eyelashes done professionally when I finish. They look so long and perfect I've been asked if I was wearing "fill in" lashes because they were so even and full of volume. Yes, this mascara does get clumpy, but not if you use it right,
To the point: I would highly recommend this product, but if you start seeing clumps, check out the video they have on how to use it, it really helped me figure out how to apply it right.
this mascara is ok, nothing special about it to me. I did not see that my lashes were any thicker. It was difficult to remove, even using eye makeup remover. Next morning still have mascara on.
Hard to Wash off!
I love Bare Escentuals and aside from my store bought mascara, use the products exclusively. I got this mascara as a free gift in my last order and was looking forward to using it.
My excitement turned into frustration when I tried to wash it off after coming home from work. I tried my cleanser first and that did nothing so I switched to my trusty jar of Vaseline which is my go to for removing eye makeup. It removed my eye shadow and barely removed any of this mascara.
As a last ditch effort, I grabbed some eye makeup remover I had in my medicine cabinet that I am not a fan of and low and behold, it removed the mascara but left me with raccoon eyes and mascara all down my cheeks.
This entire process took me 20 minutes and that is not acceptable!
In addition to not being able to remove the stuff I found the wand is far too big especially for the sample sizes.
Back to the drawing board on this product BE.
Does what it promises!
I received this mascara in a kit, so happy I did. I didn't have any expectations and when I used it BAM my lashes curled, thickened, and had tons of volume, and that's saying a lot for my super straight and short lashes. Thank you so much for introducing this new product. Please don't ever take it away!
Love this mascara! Beautiful lashes instantly. It smeared a little when I first started using it but I think it's because I got foundation primer on my eyelashes and then put the mascara on. I was more aware of not getting the primer on my lashes, and it solved the problem. Stays on great!
I love this mascara!
Best mascara ever. My sparse blond lashes look thick, dark, and long, and it lasts through the WHOLE day without flaking and smudging. Skip the eyeliner if you want - it isn't needed. DO NOT cry at all in this mascara, ever. It burns worse than hot pepper. Even so, still amazing.
This is one of my favorite mascara's ever!!!! I use it everyday for school and on the weekends. Its easy to get off and it doesn't smudge at all. It separates all the lashes and making them more noticeable and give off a full and more bold look. It does have some clumps on some of the little brushes but the are really easy to get off. I always thought that my other mascara was good but then I got this one and it made me realize that this was so much better.
