My favorite for long lashes
I love Buxom mascara and use it every day. I lengthens my lashes beautifully without clumping and they still look so natural. If I want thicker lashes, I will apply a few coats for a heavier look, but for a daytime/natural look, one coat is fine. It's not inexpensive, but, for me, this is a product that is worth the price.
Worth the price
I first got this mascara a year ago & it is the only mascara that I have ever repurchased... I'm constantly trying to find something that will hold the curl on my STRAIGHT lashes & give me volume at the same time & this does the job amazingly! This is my go-to-mascara for everyday use. I use it no matter what as a base, I would recommend it to my friends. LOVE IT!
great for curly lashes
I personally love this mascara, but not everyone I know does! I would recommend it if your lashes are already curly. For some reason they pump mine up without clumping, giving me bambi lashes. My friends who have straight lashes, however, don't like this mascara. They say it doesn't hold the curl (from their lash curlers) and comes right off.
While it's not recommended, I keep this mascara for about 5-6 months at a time because it gets better as it dries out. When I have a new bottle I will wipe excess product off on a tissue, then apply. Once it dries a bit it is perfect. If you don't like this product and can't return it, I would say keep it and see how you like it in a month or so. I find that I save a lot of money with this because it lasts so long and never flakes. I typically replace other mascaras every 1-2 months!
oh. my. gosh.
i received a deluxe sample of this in my sephora order before christmas and i have fallen head over heels with it. gone are the days of using two mascaras! for me, buxom lash is the perfect combo of volumizing and lengthening! at $19, it's not exactly cheap - as a full time student/full time fast food worker (which is horrible for my skin), it's needless to say i'm on a beauty budget - but it's not as expensive as some of the dior mascaras ($38?! pffft.) so, i think if you're looking for a higher end mascara for less money, buxom is definitely a good buy. i will be purchasing my full size very soon!
Its good for what it is. It doesn't dry fast enough for my liking and it does nothing for making my eyelashes look thick. It takes time to maneuver so you don't get it all over your eye but I do like the brush. I usually have problems with plastic spoolies but the shape on this is great for getting into the corner and the bottom lashes. Despite that I definitely don't think its worth 18 dollars, 12 maybe but 18 is pushing it.
