Bought the non-waterproof version of this mascara off Sephora online on a year end Sale just last month. Packaging was super adorable with flamingo prints! Product was suitable and comfortable to use. I have sensitive eyes and have tried many brands of mascara, from luxury ones to drugstore but my eyes were irritated and itchy. I eventually gave up on mascara (3 years ago), went for eyelash perm, til I chanced upon this mascara. Now I look forward to applying mascara everyday! It has now become my staple. I have some spares.
This is one of my favorite mascaras of all time. I’m not crazy about the packaging, but I can look past that. I love the spoolie as I’m not a fan of plastic ones. It does a nice job of lengthening with some volume. This is the mascara I tend to use less for everyday looks and more for special occasions, but one coat can look fairly natural. I try to purchase when it’s on sale – Ulta has had it for $10 and I’ve also seen it for$11. Can be a little clumpy at first and not a mascara where I can do a “quick swipe” and have it look good. I have to work a bit with this one, but I find that it’s worth it.
This mascara delivers everything that’s promised in the packaging. The brush is fluffy with multi length bristles that do a great job of grabbing every lash, it doesn’t smudge and lasts all day, and the colour is dark and heavily pigmented. I also love the uniquely textured purple case, but it does take up a lot of room in your makeup bag. Overall, I love this mascara, this is going to stay in my bag for a while.
Unlike a lot of the negative reviewers, I did not have any issues with smudging or flaking. I actually loved the look of this mascara. The dealbreaker for me, however, is that it irritated my sensitive, contact-wearing eyes like CRAZY. I’ve never reacted this way to a mascara. My eyes itched all day both times I wore it. Off to the trash can with this one. Fortunately it was just a sample size and I didn’t waste money on it.
