This is a Holy Grail mascara! It has amazing staying power and doesn't flake and wear off. It really does volumize and separate even my fine thin lashes. I pair this with L'Oreal's Voluminous carbon black and it's the PERFECT combo.
I find that this product does not flack and that my eyes do not get itchy.
I find that it does not flack while waring it and that it does not irritate my eyes since my eyes are very sensitive to most mascara's
I have been using Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect mascara for over a year now and it has never let me down! I bought it on a whim, I had never been to Sephora before and felt incredibly overwhelmed by the variety of products they have to offer. Although Sephora offers so many other brands of makeup, they understandably hold a lot of pride in their house brand. I was on my way to the checkout and saw this mascara and decided to just grab it. Although it seemed a bit pricier than my regular drugstore mascara ($18 vs. $6) the lady at the counter raved about it so I bought it. The brush itself is the perfect size to evenly coat every lash, one or two swipes is all you need per eye and it lasts all day. This mascara also adds the perfect balance of volume and length. It is also available in a variety of colours from your basics (brown and black) to all the colours of the rainbow! I have used the brown before, I am a red head with brown eyes so I find that brown mascara makes my eyes look less cat like, but I found the brown was a bit to light for my lashes, but still looked fab. When I finished up the brown, (almost 6 months later) I went back and purchased the black and loved it just as much as I find it's not as harsh as other black mascaras. If I had to give it one downfall it would be that you absolutely must, MUST remove the mascara before bed as it can stain pillow cases and bed sheets pretty badly....it's also better for your eyes (and skin) to wash your face before bedtime anyways but you will probably need some kind of eye makeup remover, along with your regular face wash routine to completely remove this mascara.
I have tried a few other mascaras since purchasing this one and they just don't do it for me.
So I strongly recommend it!
Hope this was helpful :)
you can't do it all:Average at $18:
Sephora is marketing this as a seven-in-one. Okay now, seriously? Three-in-one is fine, even four, but seven?
I think the tone of this review is pretty obvious. I wasn't too impressed. I bought it because I thought it could replace Lash Plumper (which no longer has purple).
The problem is, I needed about 3 coats to get any of the pigment to show up. When it does, it sure is pretty:
But with that many coats, my lashes got too heavy and the curl and length were shortlived. What’s the point of doing seven-in-one, if you can’t do any one right? Ha. I sounded like my dad right there. Life’s lessons applied to the beauty world.
