I think this question should be “what is the best curling mascara?” The worst curling mascara would prob just be plain old mascara, but anywho, a curling mascara that doesn’t curl that I’ve used is Rimmel’s Sexy Curves.

The worst I’ve tried would be a Sephora curling mascara. It didn’t do much and it was kind of dry. I only used it a few times before I had to give up and toss it.

Bourjois Paris Coup de Theatre Mascara
It does not curve very well ,
and the formula is like the WORST EVER ,
Drugstore mascaras always disappoint me !

I don’t know if it’s supposed to be a curling mascara but Diorshow Extase made my lashes point DOWN. That’s not acceptable for any kind of mascara.

I have tried that mascara twice. It’s not cheap. I don’t know what all the hype is about. I think it sucks!!

Love Lancome. It works on my stubby thin lashes. I LOVE IT!!

well..i definately dont think it matters if it’s drug store name..WORST mascara for me anyways is Dior DiorShow mascara ..not sure wht hype is about but leaves lashes sparse and clumpy…..

Same here! I don’t have curly lashes, but mine have decent length & thickness already. I can’t say I’ve ever hated a mascara, most just weren’t able to hold my interest long enough.

Whoa! Everyone’s hating on Rimmel Sexy Curves. I’ll admit, it really doesn’t curl, but it’s probably my favorite mascara of all time!

But I don’t think I’ve ever bought a curling mascara that actually lived up to its claims.

I have to agree witht he rimmel sexy curves as well. it was Just gross feeling and flakey. Samething with the one I was given by Bourjois. I didn’t even care whether it curled or not, i just wanted to try it since I had heard good things about their mascaras. What a tube of crap!!!! Ignoring the fact that it didn’t curl, everything else I would have rated it on was bad!!!!

I use an eyelash curler and use Covergirl Lashblast Fusion. Absolutley love πŸ™‚ The worst I’ve tried is one from Revlon. I tried it and tossed it because it was so crappy.

I never thought I could hate a mascara until I just bought CG lashblast in Lengthening. I also tried the voluminous and that one is fine but the other one is a disaster. It feels like I don’t even have any on. For me that is a big NO.

Cover Girl Lashblast is horrible! The first time I put it on it made my lashes look clumped. Plus after an hour I wanted to scratch my eyes out since it flaked horribly. I can’t understand why they claim it’s a bestseller. Horrid mascara. Thinking of going back to L’oreal.

Rimmel’s The Max Bold Curves was awful for me! It held a decent curl (but I already have long and semi-curly lashes) but it made my lashes look like clump city and nd it smudged like crazy.

I haaaaated Maybelline’s XXL Curl Pro Waterproof. I had panda eyes after an hour. While I have straight downward pointing Asian lashes which don’t really stay curled very long I haven’t had a mascara do that to me(mind you, I haven’t tried very many of them I guess). It was just a disaster. I haven’t found a good curling mascara yet, and am completely open to suggestions if anyone has them, please!

I’d say the worst is the Maybelline mascara in the pink and green tube that everyone says has been around since the dawn of mankind. I use it only on my lower lashes that are already long and dark just to get some use out of it :/ in general it’s a horrible clumpy mascara.

As I do not have many experiences and lack of practising, even I used the Shu Uemura one which people claimed it to be the best mascara curler…to me,it’s just like Monkey having a diamond XD I would love if you can suggest where to learn how to curl eyelashes πŸ™‚

this might be really old, but benefit’s get bent. my god. worst mascara ever! first one i ever bought too because i was stupid. waste of $ that was

There’s rarely a mascara I don’t enjoy. I LOVE the Maybelline Falsies Mascara. I never really use curling mascara, using an eyelash curler is enough for me. L’oreal Voluminous is great, too.
