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!
The brush definitly takes some getting used to. When I got this mascara for Christmas and I pulled it out of the tube I was thinking 'Are they serious? You expect me to put this near my eyes?' I have fairly small eyes so the size of the brush intimidated me at first but after a few days of practice I came to really like this mascara. It's not one for giving enormous volume but it makes my lashes go on for days and spreads them out to the point where people ask if I'm wearing false lashes. It's a great product and worth the money if you can spare it.
