My New Favorite!
I had doubts that any mascara could take me away from CoverGirl LashBlast, but this did it! I get uber-huge lashes with volume & length, and it doesn't flake one bit. It does get a little clumpy after a few weeks, and it has a bit of a strong smell when wet, but other than that it's really great.

Great color & coverage, so-so staying power.
I really love how smooth the powder goes on. With an eyeliner brush, it's so simple to get very precise flawless professional-looking eyeliner. I used it both dry, and with a drop of water or visine to make it a liquid liner. I had a soft look with the dry, and a hard edge with the wet. Perfect. My only complaint is it's staying power. After only a couple of hours, I'd get a little duplicated line on my eyelid, where my lid touches the lined part of my lashline when my eyes are open. Like a little copy of the liner, but in the wrong spot. It looks very silly! I didn't try it with the "Weather everything" liner sealer, maybe that would make a difference. But dry? Nope. Also, by the end of the day it had mostly worn off, leaving just a dark thin line in my lashes. If this had better staying power, it'd get a 10+ from me!

I got this as a sample from Sephora, and I can't speak to how well it works, because as soon as I put it on, I immediately had to wash it off because of the smell. It's too bad, too, because I really loved the texture of this cream. It seems like just what I have been looking for (which is why I'm giving it more than one star) but the smell is just completely gross. Too bad.

My Favorite Mascara!
I'm typically the type who cringes at spending more than $10 on makeup, but this is the one exception! This is the best mascara around. It truly thickens my lashes without clumping for an awesome feathered look! Also, one tube lasts ages! If there's a better mascara out there, I haven't found it!

Perfect brow pencil.
I love how fine tipped and thin this pencil is! It makes filling in the tiny gaps in my brows very simple, without an un-natural filled-in look. I haven't had a problem with breaking it, either, but then again, I don't push super hard (you don't need to!)

This mascara was a pretty big let down. I absolutely love the original LashBlast formula, but it does dry out very quickly. I was hoping this would be an improved formula that also lengthened, while keeping LashBlasts awesome "plumping" power. It doesn't. The formula is barely there on your lashes. I didn't notice any lengthening, and absolutely zero volume. It does "color" your lashes, but that's it. One plus: the brush is wonderful. I've never had my lashes so separated without clumps. It grabs every single lash, too! Now if only it could do that AND add volume and length... I'd be sold!

Not worth $15
Maybe I didn't get the best deal on this mascara, but I wouldn't even pay $8 for it. Huge disappointment. I will say, it does lengthen quite well, but it does NOTHING for thickening your lashes. If you just need length, and not thickness, then it's great. But for me, someone who has length naturally, but just wants thickening, this mascara isn't up to the job. As a sidenote, I'm not quite sure what the vibration does? It really is a bit uncomfortable buzzing on your eyes like that... made my eyes water!

Great if you pick the right color!
I've used a few different colors of Feria, first was Golden Sunset, which turned out great. It wasn't quite as vivid as it showed on the box, but the results were still nice. Next I tried Caramel Kiss, and had disastrous results! It's important to know (which I didn't) that any "irridescent" color has pink/purple undertones in it, and if you have any blonde hair at all, it will turn your blonde strands a very very ashy grayish purple. That's what happened to me. So if you're dark, going a few shades lighter, you're probably very safe. If you're blonde, just be a little more selective of your color choices and you'll be satisfied.

Finally! "Tubing" formula at Drugstore prices!
I have long loved "Kiss Me" mascara, which was the only one I'd known about that actually forms little tubes around your lashes. It makes it virtually impossible for it to smudge or flake, so you NEVER end up with raccoon eyes. However, the "Kiss Me" kind really lacked in length and volume, so I stopped spending the cash for lack of raccoon eyes alone. However, L'Oreal has now got the same tubing formula to actually pump up my lashes, and YES, it lengthens them too! I wasn't sure if it'd stand up to Department Store versions, but it does. I've found that if I put the base coat on smoothly, and follow right away with the regular black mascara, I get great results. And a warm soaked cottonball really does take it off. And it WON'T come off until then! Go ahead and rub your eyes all you want during the day, no raccoon eyes!

I'm tossing this one!
What is the use of a "new and improved" brush if it comes out of the tube completely caked in mascara? There is no "scraping off" device in the tube opening, so it really defeats the purpose. Sure, you can use a kleenex to wipe off the excess, but then you're wasting 80% of the product. Not to mention, there are so many good mascaras out there that don't require this extra step, so why bother with this? I guess it'd be excusable if the mascara itself was magnificent after the wipe-off, but it isn't. It's nothing special, and it makes your lashes stick together. Pass on this one!
