i first bought this mascara and was so excited to try it and when I opened it when I was home, the brush was in tube not attached to the wand! I went back to the store and got another and after actually getting to use it i was pleasently surprised at how nice it was. very lengthing, defining, nice dark black color. I have tried so many mascaras, I'd consider myself somewhat addicted to finding my favorite mascara, and this is much better then most of the high end ones and drugstore ones i've found. I'll find out later how it removes, if easy or not but for three dollars you can't pass it up!
I am an elf addict. After spending sooo much money on high end make up I thought why not, I'll give the less expensive alternative a try. These products are amazing! This mascara is comparable to BM mineral mascara. It looks clean and seperated on my lashes. I wear this when I want my lashes to look more natural instead of my usual dramatic cat eye. I have fairly long lashes and for me this mascara seemed to play up my length but gave me little volume. Still a great buy though! I have replaced most of my "high end" favorites with elf products. This mascara has earned a spot in my collection!
This mascara is one of the best I have ever tried! It does an excellent job of seperating and lengthening my lashes. I have a big problem with my eyelashes sticking together when I apply mascara, this mascara totally eliminated that. It does add volume, but i would consider it more of a legthening and defining mascara. The formula is thinner than a lot of others and that makes it easier to layer for more volume without clumping. Also, my eyelashes don't feel so stiff and dry when this is on like some mascaras do. Definitely worth the extra dollar or two over the other elf mascaras! :)
So I bought this along with some other items because it is mineral and I'm allergic to cosmetics and am almost of of my fav mascara that costs way more than I want to spend, so I gave this a try. It is very black, plus! But kinda thick on my upper lashes and a little clumpy on the bottom ones. I really like my old mascaras wand so I just cleaned it and used it with this mascara and it was fine. The wand it comes with isn't bad, its better than many I have used before, it can just take a little more work to separate the lashes. I like that it is thick and very dark, but assumed it would run really bad in the shower or if i cried, but i was pleasantly surprised that neither made it run! Thats a big plus!
I used this mascara religiously for the longest time (new tubes every couple months, of course) and never had any problems with it. No flaking, chipping, smudging, runs, or anything. It dried on my lashes pretty fast, but not fast enough as to make it difficult to work with. It doesn't smell (some other mascaras I have tried have smelled faintly of fish or paint in the tube - gross, I know), and there is virtually no clumping when it comes to the application. The brush helps with that, I think. My lashes look big, voluptuous, defined, and longer. This mascara does wonders. I am definitely going to buy dozens of these next time, because I'll be using it a lot! It's a great buy, you won't be disappointed!
I love this mascara! It doesn't take much to make my eyelashes look great with this. The main thing I love the most is the brush, with it being silicone it distributes the mascara in a very even and NATURAL looking way. I love that. I hate it when mascara makes my lashes look fake. My eyelashes are long, curly, but sort of fine. So the density of this mascara is perfect, and for three bucks I am very happy. It makes my eyelashes pop out just enough to add that extra touch, but not too much to make them look gaudy or fake. My only complaint about this mascara is that when I get it on my skin...I have to rub pretty hard to get it off with my make up remover. Also, on hotter days, it tends to flake a little.
I have been searching for the perfect mascara since I lost my eyelashes, due to illness. The Studio Mineral mascara is my new favorite and it's perfect. No clumps, no flakes, or smudging.I live in the So CA desert and this mascara is able to handle the heat without running under my eyes. It lengthens what is left of my eyelashes, and makes them look very good. This mascara is black, and I hope that e.l.f. adds a brown black and brown for daytime wear.I bought four tubes of this mascara[...]. e.l.f., please do not discontinue or change the formula of this mascara. It has taken me over six months to find a product that will actually give my lashes some length and volume. It works for me, and I love this product!
Love this mascara for everyday or smokey eye i never expect to like it so much but is amazing!! Is know my favorite mascara :) I have a picture to the first layer but at the 3 layer look like false lashes :)
I was hesitant about e.l.f. products because the price is so low. However, I have been pleasantly surprised! This mascara is as good-if not better-than any mascara I have ever used (and I am talking drugstore brands and department store brands). It applies evenly, doesn't clump, and it lengthens my lashes! I have a bit of trouble getting it off, but if that's the only drawback, sign me up for a year's supply! You cannot beat the quality or the price! Plus, I have been looking for products that are cruelty-free, so, for me, e.l.f. has it all! What an AWESOME company! :)
I love this product! It makes my lashes look long and full and separates them out as well. It lasts all day even if I take a nap!
This has quickly become my new obsession. I applied another brand to one eye and this one to the other and they looked identical, if nothing the Mineral Infused looked better. This one, unlike the other, is cruelty free which is all I'm buying now, and is cheaper than the others. My ONLY issue is that it isn't waterproof and there is no option for it. I want it to last through tears, swimming, or just the occasional watery eye which I get on occasion. No clumps, lengthens like mad, and gives me slight volume as well. Just a bit of flaking which could again be improved by making a waterproof formula. Please, E.L.F. make a waterproof option for your mascaras! But as for the product it is, a non waterproof mascara, it is incredible. :)
this mascara gave me long dark lashes which look very pretty. no volume though, which i didn't expect after reading the reviews. i've had it on for several hours now, and have noticed a few tiny flakes under my eyes. no racoon eyes yet, and my lashes still look great.the brush is wonderful, easy to apply with no clumping, and easy to reach into the corners of the eyes. i plan to remove with that most old fashioned of eye make up removers(vaseline lol) since several reviewers mentioned difficulty with removal. overall, i am impressed with this mascara.
Very impressed so far. I gave up wearing mascara & eye makeup years ago because I just couldn't find anything that would stay put & not flake/smudge/run/leave dark semicircles under my eyes. After deciding that I wanted to add a new twist to my look, I took a chance on this stuff, figuring I was probably just throwing the few bucks away in the name of trying something new. But I've worn it a few days & have NOT been dissapointed so far! It really does stay put, apply super easily, and look great. To me, that's about all I could ask for in a mascara :)
I simple love this mascara. I always use MAC mascara. I have tried most of MAC mascara & it's prep & prime primer. This mascara is just like MAC studio fix mascara. I used ELF mascara primer. It's works better than MAC. After I finish MAC false lashes mascara and prep & prime primer. I'll continue buying ELF. Ladies, don't forget. Always use eyelash primer before applying mascara. It protects your lashes and you lashes look longer and fuller. To make the lashes look fuller/ thicker, add 2 coats of primer & mascara. Then, viola. You have FAB-U- Lashes
The Mineral Infused Mascara is an excellent mascara that works great with E.L.F.'s Mascara Primer! I've always bought the semi-expensive (compared to this) brands, and won't be buying those anymore because this mascara is easier to apply, doesn't clump, dries quickly, and stays fresh for hours. My only complaint is in trying to remove it; I usually just take mascara off with a cotton ball and warm water, but you have to be more careful with this mascara because if you're too rough it'll pull out your eyelashes! Overall, though, fabulous product!!
First I liked it (thought wasn't very impressed) but then I started to realize that I have more issues that benefits with this mascara. Here they are: 1. I don't really notice a lot of added volume of length. Good for daytime makeup but not for the evening or special occasions. 2. Extremely hard to remove. Eye makeup remover or face wash gel won't work. You actually need to kinda scrub this off of your lashes. Which leads to the 3rd issue.. 3. My lashes started to falling off twice more that they usually do. Over all: not going to buy again.
I never loved mascara because everytime I try it on it always ends up smearing, smudging. I tried so many even expensive mascara , so now im obsessed with elf so I thought lets give it a try. And WOW, it doesn't smear at all! I even cried with it and nothing. The only problem is that this mascara isn't filled all the way so I would buy more than one but I don't use it everyday so it's ok. But I love this!!!! Best best best! (my opinion). By the way I put alot of cream on my face cause I have dry skin and it still stays without smudging :)!
I purchased this mascara sometime ago but never really used it. One day after running out of my more expensive brand product that I have been using for lengthing of lashes.I tried ELF out and all I could say was WOW!!! Everyone thought I was wearing fake lashes and when I told them it was mascara by Elf they were amazed. I am a little concerned like the rest with the product being a little difficult to remove adn therefore removing your lashes in the process. I truly hope Elf is evaluating everyones feedback in this department.
Got this and another elf mascara for christmas and they're both amazing! This particular mascara is great for day time when I just want a very subtle effect. It separates my lashes evenly and lengthens pretty good. Very, very natural. The wand is very easy to control and the short bristles help keep the product off my skin during application, which I hate! Love the small wand for sure. My lashes are already long and slightly curled and this just made them more defined. Plus, it doesn't make my lashes feel all hard and flaky.
I'm not a big fan of mascara because it always seems too dramatic on my eyes. My hair is naturally dark, but all previous mascaras I've tried seem thick. With this, I can barely tell I'm putting it on- expect that my lashes get darker and appear thicker and longer. This mascara is super clean and easy- the brush is small and effective and I don't get smudges near my eyes during application as I have with other brushes. I only use one coat and it looks like I just have naturally beautiful lashes. Love this mascara.
I have naturally long dark eyelashes but I've tried a few mascara's. Most make them look spidery. I tried this when there was a half off sale. I'm glad I did. The packaging is so ... Sleek and nice. The tube is very bug (not overly but bigger than most mascara's) This brush is so bendy and awesome. The mascara legnthens. It's lightweight and natural looking. I gave it to my mom because it made my lashes too long, yes, it's possible for me :( She has shorter, light colored eyelashes and it looked awesome on her.
I love silicone wands like the one that comes with this mascara, however, the wand was longer than the mascara bottle, and when I first opened it to use it, the end of the wand was so bent and crumpled up that I had to use a wand from a different mascara just to apply it! I think this is an issue that can easily be fixed! otherwise, the wand was a nice idea, and the product was fine, but overall, I'm disappointed that I have to go to so much trouble to apply mascara. Oh, well, I guess you get what you pay for!
I really like this mascara. It doesn't add much volume, but it curls and defines beautifully. It also gives a pretty good length to my lashes. I was very impressed with this. I find myself using this over my other mascaras. The brush is the right size and it's easy to get in the corners of my eyes. I like the packaging, it's simple and black. The only thing is, they should have a dark brown and a very black. As I have to layer a Maybelline mascara over this to make it much darker. I like very black mascaras.
When I first got this, I had medium expectations. There are a ton of good reviews, and I was a little excited. I will tell you, it does lengthen a bit, and it really DOES add volume, and the brush is great. Immediately after putting it on I was very pleased. Fast forward about 2 hours. This stuff smudges and flakes so bad it's unbelievable. I literally had raccoon eyes and I didn't even touch my face. Needless to say, I will not be buying this again. Which is a shame, because it actually works quite nicely.
This is a nice average mascara, but if you are looking for the super WOW-factor for your lashes, this is not it. I have long thin lashes and this mascara did make my lashes stand out, but it did not add volume or thicken them at all. The mascara is smudge-resistent and did not flake. I recommend using make up remover to take it off since it did not come off easily with soap and water. It is a perfectly good mascara - just not the one for me. I would recommend this for anyone who wants the natural look.
I really liked this mascara. The brush doesn't have long bristles, but it actually helped in the application by not clumping a bunch of mascara onto your lashes. They also stayed on all day long through work and dinner. At the end of the night, I did have some trouble removing it with my makeup remover (non waterproof one) but mainly cuz it started smudging onto my face. It wasn't bad at all tho. I like how the short bristles of the brush separate out each of my lashes. I'd definitely recommend this!
This is great for days when you just want a bit of color to your lashes. It defines and adds a bit of length, but nothing crazy. Good for everyday, and it lasts ALL DAY. I enjoy using it when I have a bold liner color on, because it really lets the liner pop by not making my lashes too thick and dark. Works great to blend natural lashes into falsies, too! I almost wish it would wash off a bit easier, it lasts so well! Not my go to for a bold eye look, but it's a keeper! Will buy again. Thanks, elf!
This is a good mascara for anybody. The formula is wet so those with light colored lashes or those with short lashes can build this up with several coats without it getting clumpy. I have naturally long, full lashes and these separated each lash. This mascara defined with the first coat, added length with the second, and volumized with the third. It looked like I had falsies on (natural ones) because it has a slightly shiny finish. Overall this is a great mascara and I highly recommend this one.
I honestly didn't expect this mascara to be so huge. The tube is probably the largest size of mascara I've ever owned. Definitely worth the price. It applies much more smoothly than the regular line mascara. And it doesn't feel too heavy like the other studio mascara. It also is buildable, it goes on relatively thin, but layers very well, even after it's dried. I bought 3 knowing I'd like it better than the others I've bought from elf before, and they're probably going to last me a year considering how much product you actually get. My only complaint is that the applicator is a little flimsy. The wand is strong, just the silicone brush doesn't have much stability. But because it goes on so smoothly, it's not too much of an issue as far as applying. I'm sure it's something I'll get used to.
I bought this thinking why not since it's so cheap and have to say I'm very pleased. First off, I LOVE the brush. It's small enough that I can put it in the small parts of my eye and the bristles are small and spaced evenly so I don't get spider eyes. The only thing is that it doesn't thicken for me which sucks. It really, really, lengthens, though and the black color is nice. I would recommend this for daytime only because I prefer thicker lashes for evening. Overall, I definitely recommend!
