This is a great mascara. It costs as little as $7.97 at Walmart, which is still a little bit more expensive than most drugstore mascaras, but I would say that it is definitely worth it. The mascara claims that it will stretch lashes toward the outer corner to create a "winged" effect. It also says that it lengthens and volumizes lashes with its unique "Cocoon Fibers". The mascara definitely gives you length like no other, but I have to say that the eyelashes those girls have in the commercials definitely did not come from this mascara. Although the asymmetric brush does get rid of any clumps, it does little to "stretch your lashes toward the outer corner." If you're looking to get that exaggerated, winged look, I would suggest getting some fake lashes or waiting for the next "revolutionary brush" that will give them to you.
This is the effect I get from using this mascara. My lashes are long and separated. They do not look fuller than usual, but the mascara isn't meant to do that anyway. My eyelashes look dark and very dramatic. I really like using this mascara. The only thing is when I use it with winged eyeliner, my lashes blend in with the black and it looks like I have no eyelashes. Other than that, I love this mascara.
This is the effect I get from another lengthening and volumizing mascara. This one is from Tarte cosmetics and costs about $20 (Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara) which is more than twice the cost of the Loreal mascara. As you can see, my eyelashes are not as separated from this mascara. My lashes are not as dark or as full when using this mascara. Basically if you want long, separated lashes definitely go pick up the Loreal mascara instead of this pricey, high-end version.
Overall I give this mascara an 8/10. Only because occasionally, depending on what other makeup I'm wearing, I can't use this mascara to create the look I want. Now it's your turn! What do you think of this mascara? Leave a comment telling me how you liked it (or didn't like it).
