The mascara formula goes on light enough that you can put on a few coats to get the exact amount of that bold lash look that you are going for. The little ball on the end of the applicator gets those hard-to-reach baby lashes on the insides and outsides of your lash line, which really give you that lush, almost false-lash look. The applicator is thin enough that you can use this on your bottom lashes without getting smudges under your eyes on the skin.
I have been asked more than a handful of times whether my lashes were "real" when I am wearing this product, no lie. This is my ride-or-die mascara and I tout its praises to anyone who will listen. I know it isn't the cheapest mascara on the market, but I promise the benefits are worth it. Plus, the formula does not get dried out or clumpy, so you can use it right up to the 3 month mark (when they suggest you throw out mascara because of germs). Try this! ...read more
This mascara is great for top lashes!! Adds volume and length!! For bottom lashes it can be a little difficult to apply because of the size of the brush, hence the four star rating, but it's doable. But the brush style makes it for great volume! It really grabs the lashes and coats them!!! I stayed away from purchasing for so long due to other reviewers saying it flaked and I have incredibly sensitive eyes but I haven't had any issues with it flaking. I do two coats each time and I have nothing on my under eyes after a long day or night. It makes my lashes look so full! It's totally worth the price!I am blessed with very curly, long lashes, but they are also very thin. I am constantly on the look out for mascaras that heavily volumize my lashes. I was also drawn to Two-Faced because they are cruelty-free, so purchasing their main mascara seemed like a no brainer. This mascara certainly volumized and accentuated my lashes; I was thrilled with the formula. However, I did find the wand difficult to use. The hourglass shape and sheer girth of the brush made it difficult to apply the mascara flawlessly. I would end up with dots and lines of mascara on my eyelids where I had just applied shadow. It was frustrating to say the least. I wish Two-Faced would come out with a different bristle option with the same formula because the effects of it are fantastic! I used the tube up, but I could not make myself repurchase it due to the size of the wand. I love this mascara! I was hesitant to try a high end mascara because of the price, but I'm so glad I did! My lashes are short and thin and this mascara helps a lot. I always buy a new one before I run out because I never want to be without this mascara!!This mascara is everything. It's stays on all day and night without smudging but is so easy to remove. It lengthens and adds so much volume with just one coat! I've been stuck on the same mascara for over 2 years and have finally found one even better and at a lower price. ...read more
