I wrote this review after purchasing and wearing the Katy Cat Very Black Mascara a handful times.The GOOD-The first thing I liked about this product was the price! It was very reasonable compared to the Covergirl mascara I was going to purchase instead.The BAD-When I opened the mascara for the first application I noticed the brush was COVERED in product and I mean full saturated in the thick creamy mascara. When I applied it to my lashes it wasn't clumpy but it did make my lashed super thick and spiky (spider leg lashes! EEK!!!)The next time I applied it however I wiped all the excess product on the opening of the tube until it was nearly a bare brush. When I applied it to my lashes this time I got a way better result and loved the lengthening and filling result. The UGLY- I was disappointed with how thick the product is and just how much comes out with the brush when you pull it out of the tube. I have to wipe away a lot of excess to use it and I feel like its a huge waste of product. I also saw that many of products from this manufacturer are tested on animals in countries that require it by law. While I cant find the source or definite proof of this claim,IF it is true I can tell you I will no longer be purchasing from them.SHORT ANSWER-My short answer is Yes,I like this product but there are better out there that don't have the issues I listed above and are not tested on animals.Would I buy it again? No. I wouldn't buy it again unless they changed the product formula and testing procedures. HOWEVER I will continue to use the current tube I have now as it decent enough not to toss out right now.Disclosure- I The Coupon Hippy® bought and tested this item without provocation or requirement from the company that produces it or any other company,website or entity. My opinions formed are my own and I was in no way compensated for this review.
Favorite brand..mediocre results. I love splat. It works well in my hair and I'm usually very pleased with the results and upkeep after a dye job. However, this has to be the color that has disappointed me the most. It came out cherry instead of that dark cherry it advertises and no amount of redying would change it. Also this color seems to bleed more than the others which can be problematic.
This hairspray is amazing. Its impossible to find hairspray that actually works and isn't super crunchy and bad on your hair. This doesn't make your hair crunchy or overly shiny and its still workable so you can keep your hair perfect even after spraying it multiple times. It's so awesome I have a travel sized one for work!
I'm in love with this brand and this product! My hair is reallllly over processed and this conditioner has helped me keep my hair healthy despite constant dying and using damaging styling tools. I can not say how much I freaking love this line! I've used 3 different ones and love them all but this one is my all time favorite.
So this was the second item in my Star Wars set I found at Wal-mart marked for clearance.
Last night I finally got to try it out!
I applied the mascara (it has a cool wand!) and was massively (I'm talking size of the Dagobah system) impressed. This mascara doesn't flake at all and my puny lashes were as plump as Jabba the hut after one application. Normally I have to do 2-3 coats of ANY mascara but not with this one. The only problem and its not necessarily a 'problem' was that this stuff is hard to get off. Harder to get off my lashes than it is to get the Millennium Falcon off Jakku with a blown hyperdrive.
All in all I'm in love with this mascara and can't wait to find more! This one was 4/10 with a neato Star Wars phrase on it. I need them all!
Not only is it a beautiful color its also one of my favorite brands. Its complimentary to all eye colors and really pops. It lasts all day and rarely needs reapplication! I highly recommend anything from this brand.
