Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara
Wand too thick
My main complaint is that the wand is so big around that it's hard to work with at the corners of my eyes.
Not their best mascara
First, let me say that I love Bare Minerals and have been using their products for years. It is rare that I don't like a product.
I normally use the Flawless Definition volumizing mascara and really liked it, so I figured I would like this one as well. I don't. It is very clumpy and flakes off very easily. This is especially irritating since I wear contacts. Unfortunately, I waited too long and can't return or exchange the product. Once I need new mascara, though, I will be returning to the Flawless Definition.
Received a free sample and tried it. I liked it for the first few times I used it. Made a difference with my black lashes but ended up being really clumpy. Wasn't quite dramatic enough for my night time look and was too dramatic for everyday use. I ended up tossing it after less than a month of use.
Really Hard to Remove
I have to use two products to remove this and then wash my eye area twice.
I guess what I really like is to have all of my make-up come off when I wash my face, all one step. Also, when I open the oven to remove dinner, my lashes melted together (slightly).
It is just not for me.
Lash Domination Mascara
I first started using this mascara when I got it as a free sample, and I fell in love! I have light-colored, thin eyelashes, and I am always looking for mascara that will really plump and darken my lashes, and this mascara is the one. It really volumizes and plumps my lashes, and it easy to layer for extra volume.
The only thing that I don't like about this mascara is that in order to get all 10 benefits, you have to wiggle, twist, and move the wand all at the same time, and the handle is a little thick for doing this. it works, it is just a little complicated. It also clips towards the end of it, but what mascara doesn't? Overall, this is easily overlooked in light of all it does for me!
The Best Mascara Ever
This is the best mascara I have ever used and believe me I've used them all from expensive department store designer brands as well as drug store brands. This gives me lift, volume and curl. and gives me lashes I never knew I had. I absolutely love this mascara. Leslie, you have a customer forever with this mascara. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I received this in the All the Faves kit. I have not tried any other of BE's mascaras yet. I liked this mascara because my eye lashes looked longer and fuller. However, the mascara clumped on my eye lashes with just putting on one coat. It also was a bit heavy on my eye lashes, when I blinked it ended up smearing below my eyes even without any clumps. I liked the way it looked, but it could've been better. I like BE so I am not giving up, this mascara was just not the perfect match for me.
I love this mascara. A girl at work asked if i had on false eyelashes. It's that dramatic of a difference. If it's too clumpy, try not applying so much and let dry between applications. But one coat is enough for me.
Sorry, I love BE but this product did not work for me. Barely any product gets deposited on my lashes and what does doesn't stay on. When I purchased the topcoat hadn't come out yet, but since I got no length and little else, there really wouldn't be a point.
The Real Deal
I just got a sample of this with my (large chain beauty store) order and it's AMAZING! One coat = beautiful and believably full lashes. Two coats and I look like I applied lush, flirty falsies! Give it time to dry after each application and it won't smudge or run. Came off nice and easy with a gentle soap in the shower (no dark stuff left over to rub off or wash again). For nice even application, slowly twist the wand as you slide it up your lashes. I also like to use a clean wand to smooth and separate. You'll love this mascara!
This is the best mascara I have ever purchased. The brush is awesome is separating lashes, which is important to me because I hate when they clump together and look fake. This mascara makes it look like you have bomb awesome lashes. It is mostly water proof, however, after intense crying an a funeral, I did have a little bit smear, but definitely better than most.
Would recommend to a friend and buy again.
The first time I used it, it worked great. After that, the brush became clumpy with mascara. I love the way it keeps my lashed curled, so I've been working around the clumps, but its very annoying. I've been very pleased with other bareMinerals mascaras.
Long and Stunning Lashes But......
I love Bare Minerals, love love love. I tried the Lash Domination and it does everything it says, separates, gives volume, clump free, lengthens, and gives you the most dramatic falsie look. It doesn't flake off so it's great for contact lens wearers (like myself). My only issue that is really a disappointment is within hours, you have raccoon eyes! I had to check myself in a mirror every so often and there was that lingering mascara shadow under my eyes and even the top lids! Other than the raccoon eyes I had to wipe away every so often, it would be the PERFECT mascara without that annoying flaw. Who wants gorgeous lashes that give you a look as if you haven't slept?! Please fix this BM!!!!!
very disappointed...taking it back
I'm glad I'm not the only one who has been disappointed with this product. I experienced clumping after a few uses too. And the raccoon eyes by mid-morning! Wiping off the mascara under my eyes along with my cover up! I'll be switching back to the the Flawless definition mascara.
Impressed, but other BE mascara still my favorite
I was skeptical about this mascara because BE's Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen is my all time favorite mascara - but I was impressed with the coating of this product. It applies thickly in one coat, reducing the amount of times I have to go over each eye. It absolutely increases eyelash volume which is always a plus. The formula is definitely thicker, but still feels nice when dry and doesn't smear or flake throughout the day.
That being said, there are some downsides that keep it from being my favorite. Although it applies nice and thick, this can and will lead to clumping. Wiping some of the product from the brush helps, but it's inevitable so apply with caution. It also weighs my lashes down (again, because of the thick formula) and the curl is often gone by midday. My favorite Curl & Lengthen separates my lashes making them appear naturally thicker and longer, whereas the Lash Domination tries too hard to do its job. My lashes are thicker, but it's more noticeable that I'm wearing mascara because of clumps and such. All in all, a decent buy but I'll be going back to my favorite!
I am so sad that some people don't like this!
I know it is hard to have 1 mascara make absolutely everyone happy, but I am so happy that it works for me! I love this stuff! I do have pretty long lashes to begin with, but this gives me amazing volume! I feel it separates my lashes so well and grabs every lash to give me that super 'full' lash look! I love it! I first thought the brush would be too big when I first opened the tube but I was wrong! Works great for both my upper and lower lashes. I think this is such a dark, pigmented mascara and I am so happy I don't need primer for it! I hope this mascara stays around forever! Love it! Thank you!
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.
Wonderful Formula, Brush Needs Some Work...
This formula is absolutely wonderful. The brush and application technique is a great idea, but the brush is just too big. I am unable to apply it without getting it all over my lids. The lashes themselves look amazing though! I think if the brush was identical, but 25% smaller in every way, it would be absolutely perfect.
Great, but one concern
I tried this product in a BE store and was amazed. Bought it and used it for about a month and was thrilled with it. It has started to clump every time I use it so I have to go behind it with a clean brush to de-clump my lashes. It's still by far the best mascara I have ever used and would recommend to anyone despite the clumping issue I have had recently.
Good initial results but tends to mark under eye
It looks great at application time but tends to mark under eye area as the day goes on. Delivers long full lashes an applies best with twisting the brush. If you try to wiggle the brush and twist (like the video) I get mascara around the eye area and clumps. I'm going back to the regular high definition mascara.
Um, not so sure....
The wrist twisting thing....I don't know. I give BE the credit for the idea though. I'm not a fan of acrobatics that early in the morning with my beauty routine. I think the flawless definition volumizing is one of the best volumizing mascaras out there.
