Too Faced Pin Point Mascara ($19.50) is just not a mascara that works with my sparse, all-willy-nilly lashes.

Claim: An extreme defining, volumizing, and lengthening mascara.

Results:  Slightly longer, thicker lashes–but that’s about it.  It’s not a dramatic difference between my natural lashes and with mascara.  When I think “extreme,” I’m definitely thinking about getting close to false lashes status.  I think if you have a lot of lashes, this might work better for you than it did for me.  With sparser lashes, the mascara has to work pretty hard to get fabulous lashes, IMO.  I didn’t experience any smudging or flaking throughout the day, which is always a plus.  I doubt I’ll be reaching for this mascara in the future, because I have several that give my lashes better results.

Anyone else tried Pin Point? Thoughts?

Bare lashes…

Mascara-free lashes for comparison!

    Very disappointing mascara! There is barely any difference between your natural lashes and with mascara! Thanks for the review: I’m not going to buy this one!

    Have you tried the new by Terry mascara called BLACKSTAR? Its $39 and i wondered if you tried it yet?

  3. thank goodness you reviewed this mascara I was honestly THISCLOSE to buying it!

    How dissapointing! I have the original Too Faced Lash Injection mascara, and after all the raving reviews and the SA’s promises, I was quite dissapointed with the forumla/consistency, etc. However, as you said, there is NO smudging or flaking during the day, but the downside of that is it takes me up to 10mins to take the damn stuff off!

    • I remember Lash Injection (albeit not well), and I think I even reviewed it on the blog awhile back… but it wasn’t impressive enough to replace my usuals.

    Wow, Pinpoint is my new HG mascara! I absolutely love it, I find it really really lengthening for me. Not really a volumous mascara, but I go for length any day. I’ll be buying this over and over. I love the thin wand too, I tend to bump my lids with thicker brushes, this allows me to try different application techniques and it’s perfect every time. I adore this stuff!

    • I’m really happy to hear it worked for you, Amanda! I think it’s so great to be able to hear from someone who LOVED it. It helps give other people who are considering it another side to see :)

    heres a picture

    ysl effet faux cils mascara …it looks very natural with one coat and can be build up

    for superduper lashes you still need falsies though :)

    Since you have sparse lashes, you should try the regular lash injection. I don’t have many lashes either, but lash injection works like a charm. It makes my lashline look full. My old friends were asking me if i had fake eyelashes on! Oh, and if you like other Too Faced stuff, I suggest using their promo code TFFriends to get 25% off!!! Love it!!!

    I like the regular lash injection mascara much better than pinpoint. They’re supposed to be the same formula, just different brushes, but I guess the brush really makes all the difference! A lot of people with sparse lashes tend to love the pinpoint, though. They say it gives them so much length.

    I just bought some thinking I’d like it. It was OK. Same as in the picture. I like the tube type mascaras because they don’t flake. I really love Trish McEvoy’s High Volume Mascara. When I want a bit more in terms of thickness/night look I add the Mac primer and that seens to work just fine. I’ve also tried the new L’Oreal tube mascara and I thought the results there were even less the pin point.

    i love this mascara it makes my lashes look fake especialy if i ‘fluff up’ the tips with the regular big brushed lash injection! x
