I think MAC Dazzle Lash is it just clumps and clumps it doesnt volumize or give length for me!
Dazzlelash isn’t supposed to give volume, just length and it works REALLY well if you use a lash primer
I agree. Lash primer is a must, but it has started to clump on me too! It is 8 months old and time to face the rubbish bin
When there are so many amazing mascaras out there why bother buying a separate product – a lash primer? Not worth it, in my opinion.
It also conditions and protects your lashes too. I get less lash fall out ever since using primer.
I second that! It was horrible, the brush was annoying and it made my lashes look worse. Never again will i get it. I was soo happy when i finaly threw it away
I’m sorry but I just can’t get the Smokey Lash from MUFE to work for me!
From what I have tried – Rimmer Sexy Curves. Doesn’t hold curl at all.
Omg no way! This one is HG for me. My eyelashes go straight DOWN and I don’t even bother curling them because as soon as I put mascara they weight pulls them down again. Sexy Curves gives me volume and thickness! Sorry it didn’t work for you
i have the waterproof version, and it just TUGS and TUGS at my lashes, it hurts so much. i hate it. hey, check you fresh mascaras, they sell 2 samples at sephora registers for $10- i love firebird.
Maybelline Great Lash.
I second that! It’s so clumpy and flaky, and it doesn’t curl, lengthen or thicken at all. The only reason so many love it is because it’s really black, so you can use it like a lash tint if you want toned-down lashes – That is, if you can get it to stay on..
I agree!! basically useless!
Bare Escentuals. Although, I haven’t tried the new flawless mascara which is supposed to be really good.
Oh God – exceptionel de chanel is terrible (and inimitable is an HG for me).
I didn’t think much of turbolash EL, holy cow that buzzing is annoying! and absolutely useles – smydgy and messy too!
I agree 100% about the Chanel mascaras. How could they put out in the market such a horrible produst is beyond me…
My favorite is Hypnose Lancome followed by Masterpiece by Max Factor
Lorac Lotsa Lash Mascara, i think the formula was wayyy to dry! it felt like i was paiting my lashes with shoe polish! ugh!
Avon supershock mascara. SHOCKINGLY CLUMPY LASHES UP TO 120%! hahaha
Maybelline Great Lash! It did nothing to my lashes. It was my first mascara ever. I don’t get how so many people buy it. haha
it would B REvlon LAsh SOmething, iTs a Small silver tube. Bought in a haste.
IT jus su cks.
I don’t know about the worst ever, but Maybelline Lash Stiletto is the worst I’ve used in quite some time. I know it works well for some people, but it uncurls my lashes and clumps them together horribly – maybe it’s a little too wet? The only way I get decent application with this is if I use only a couple of strokes per eye. Anything beyond that and my lashes are all stuck together. It doesn’t flake on me, but I do have a hard time applying it without getting it on my lids, and I generally don’t have that problem, even with wands much larger than this one. I am using up the tube of it that I have, but I definitely won’t be repurchasing.
I hate that mascara too, although it does flake on me, by the time i get home from where ever i were, it was all down my eye and nothing was on the lashes for some reason :/
I agree! I actually found it way too dry and flaky. Plus the brush was too big and bushy for my lashes.
I have to agree!! I’ve tried to make it work soo many times, I really have. I think it’s the consistency of the product itself, it’s a bit runny/watery.. and it just clumps all of my lashes together! Even when I used a lash comb, it does not work out! Two thumbs down for Maybelline’s Stiletto mascara
It works just fine for me, I really like it, but I do agree the brush is a tad too big.
it’s a tie between benefit badlash and lancome’s motorised mascara. the benefit one is just clumpy for me…and the lancome one flakes off throughout the day.
Maybelline Great Lash. Enough said.
So true. Even worse is the waterproof version. I almost had to rip my eyelashes out to get it off (even after using all sorts of waterproof makeup removers).
Too Faced Lash Injection! This mascara did nothing but make my lashes a tiny bit darker and spread out at odd angles. Worst mascara I’ve ever tried.
AGREED. This was the worst mascara I have used by far.
diorshow. flake flake flake flake. talk about racoon eyes
ditto about diorshow! flaky… i never got the rave reviews
Too Faced Lash Injection, it just flakes off!
Dior show flakes, smudges and it’s clumpy with a nasty big old unattractive wand.
Maybelline Great Lash, worst mascara I’ve ever tried. Even N.Y.C.’s mascara is better than great lash. I bought this and threw it out a week later. Clumpy mess!
Benefit Bad Gal lash is the absolute worst!!! Does NOTHING for my lashes.
It is either Too FacedLash injection. I used it maybe 2-3 times thinking it was me, and then gave up and threw it out. Shoulda returned it to Sephora, but I had thrown away the receipt.
No receipt needed to return to Sephora.
Practically all the Clinique mascaras I’ve tried (except for the newer one that’s recently come out) have never faired well with me. Once I got a freebie Rimmel one with my eye makeup remover and that was pretty crappy as well.
Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express is the worst mascara I’ve ever tried. Instead of making my lashes fuller, it just makes them clump together. I hate it!
I agree and I couldn’t stand the rose smell of it. Is it suppose to smell like that?
Accually my experience with the maybelline colossal was the exact opposite besides the rose scent it made my lashes really long and volumized it never clumped either it just varies from person to person.
Maybelline Colossal, I don’t have sensitive eyes, but this made may eyes swell up. Other than that, it flaked on me within a few hours.
maybelline xxl curl power. clumpy and weighs my lashes down. maybelline great lash doesn’t do much for my lashes either.
Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara. Does nothing for me, hard to get any product on my short, skimpy lashes.
