Rating: 4.5 Peace Signs

The Good:I think I have found my new HG. Ok first off I have really stubborn lashes that NEVER hold a curl no matter what, I've tried everything even the heating up the curler with no luck. So, this mascara claims to hold curl up to 16 hours and to my surprise it actually does!! I put this mascara on early in the morning and by that night my lashes still looked like they did when I first applied it. I also really like the brush it's not too big or small and makes it easy to get the corner lashes and bottom lashes. It doesn't have any funky smell like my former favorite (Maybelline Colossal). It also provided a good amount of volume to my lashes which is always a good thing.

The Bad: It dries pretty fast which can cause clumps in between coats so you have to work kinda fast to prevent that but it isn't a big issue to me and the clumps weren't huge and can easily be combed out if you want.

Overall: I really really LOVE it! I only came across it because the store I went to was out of the one I wanted and I seen it and thought it sounded promising.

*Just MY opinion of this product*


So, how does it look on my lashes???

No mascara and curled:

One Coat: Two Coats: Three Coats:

I think it makes a HUGE difference, I forgot to take pictures at the end of the day but believe me when I say that they looked the same as they did in the last picture by that time and I was totally amazed!

I hope you all like this review especially if you were curious about it.

If you have any questions about anything I may have left out, just let me know!

Wow that looks great! I'm also on a quest for mascara - for some reason I won't suck it up and buy my everyday HG, Maybelline Full 'n Soft, until I try a bunch of new others - and this will definitely be on the top of my to-try list.

Awesome review!
I've always been a bit skeptical about reviews as they always seem to say something different to others.
The photos are amazing, there's the proof I needed to see to buy this mascara!

Thanks so much!

I find it a little unfair that your lashes are so lush already but the mascara does look fantastic on you!

I recently purchased this product and so far I'm loving it too :D
