My go-to mascara for a couple of years running!
I haven't found a mascara yet that beats this. It's been a staple for me for a couple of years now. It literally transforms my lashes - making them look longer and fuller. With the right flick of your wrist it separates beautifully and keeps lashes curled. My lashes are of decent length, but like my hair they're super fine and thin. Before finding this mascara it was a struggle for me to find anything that made my lashes look fuller and without irritation.
A staple in my makeup collection
The Bare Minerals Buxom Lash mascara has been a staple in my makeup collection since it became available to purchase. I've tried various mascaras ranging from drugstore to high end and no other mascara has compared to the Buxom lash. Keep in mind that we're all looking for something different in our mascara. I barely have lashes and they're short. For me personally, I'm looking for am mascara that will make my lashes looker fuller and a little longer. Length, however, isn't as important to me like fullness is.
The Buxom Lash makes my lashes look full for hours and doesn't flake off like drugstore mascaras. The Maybelline Falsies mascaras not only irritate my eyes, but it also clumps and flakes off. Not to mention my lashes didn't stay full for long. The brush is really great and the product says what it does. It distributes the product evenly and your lashes will darken.
Too many other good ones to spend $$ on this.
Really, Bare Escentuals... your bazillion dollar face makeup empire wasn't enough? You really had to branch out into mascara too? Well, fail. The wand is a funky shape that I can't seem to make good use of. I don't need a big bulbous tip for anything. In fact, it kind of gets in the way when I'm applying it the way I do. Maybe that's just me. The color is nice and black but it takes ten million strokes to get my lashes where I want them to be. Definitely doesn't compare to Benefits badGal.
This is my absolute favorite mascara of all time. The price is pretty pricey, but compared to all the top brand prices, this beats it. It gives great length and volume. It separate my lashes so well, and keeps it looking clean but still volumizing and lenghtening.
Pretty good by itself- AMAZING when layered over L'Oreal Telescopic!
I tried this at Sephora on top of the L'Oreal Telescopic mascara I was already wearing and it blew me away!!!! My lashes looked really, REALLY long, thick, dark, separated, and FAKE (in a good way). I had to buy it... but when I tried it the next morning by itself it wasn't as impressive. It still defined every lash and made my lashes look really long but I didn't get that "fake" look and my lashes didn't look as "buxom" as they did when I tested this over my regular mascara. I have stick-straight, short Asian lashes so maybe it's just my type of eyelashes that gives me a hard time finding the perfect mascara. Anyway- I couldn't give this 5 stars because it doesn't work as well by itself but I definitely recommend trying this mascara over a lengthening mascara like L'Oreal Telescopic and it'll look CRAZY good :)
This mascara is absolutely amazing! I've been on the lookout for quite some time for a replacement for my favorite lengthening mascara after they changed the formula, and this FAR exceeds what my old mascara ever did. I will be recommending this to everyone I see!
quality fail [lol]
this simply didnt live up to its expectations.. as well as its price! it didnt give me enough product, drama, anything that i expected.. there are drugstore products that work better i find... i had to really pack this on.. the wand is neat but its so flexable and bendy that its hard to manouver at times.. ah well!
I absolutely love this mascara. This was the first mascara that I honestly ever used and I was addicted. It makes my lashes long and looks really natural. I love the brush but I wish there was more product. I always seem to run out pretty fast. I've moved on to though to my YSL mascara but I will use this every now and then.
