I bought this mascara about a month ago and figured I'd use it every day to give a useful review. This mascara works WONDERSSSS!!!!!!!! Not even kidding, get your arse up and go buy it, like right now.
Let me preface by say I have tried every single mascara known to man: from the $30/tube Dior Show to the crapola N.Y.C brand and Mary Kay and everything in between...I've tried the motion wand, the double end, the priming, lengthening, stiletto, full n soft, blah blah blah - ALL of them...and not mention every curler known to man as well.
Yet, I can say that this little lovely above puts them ALL to shame :) It gives a full effect like no other and curls beyond belief. There isn't much more raving I could do about this mascara, just get it - it's $9 for pete's sake.
:::::Disclaimer: This mascara is next to impossible to get off...you HAVE to use makeup remover and really rub it off, I haven't found anything else that gets it off even in the slightest bit, I suppose this is the one, slight drawback::::
Seond up is the CG Lash Blast Water Resisitant Lengthening Formula which you can purchase at CVS here for about $8
Similar to its counterpart, the lengthening formula works wonders. The reason I am reviewing this product in addition to the holy grail above is because, I personally use BOTH mascaras on a daily basis. The lengthening formula isn't nearly as difficult to remove as the original formula and I will, from time to time, use the lengthening formula alone because it gives that very soft, doe-eyed look that pairs well with the 'less is more' look I go for when I'm just running errands or whatever
So here's my gig:
- I curl my lashes with a cheapy Elf brand curler from the $1 store (yeah that's right, the dolla store)
- I apply about 2 or 3 coats of this lengthening formula which does a wonderful job at equally separating all the lashes and giving a real full, individual lash effect it does not clump, ever, at all. If you somehow manage to clump it, you are mascara handicapped - plain and simple.
- I then apply 1-2 coats of the orange lash blast (but first I give it a gentle swipe on a tissue to remove excess) taking my time to apply generously on all lashes as evenly as possible
- Voila! You've got, what I believe to be, very fab-U-lussss lashes
