*BTW – I am very aware of my lipstick looking all wonky. I’m testing out new Cover Girl products, and I used their glitter gloss with one of the Queen liquid lipsticks. Looks great in the BoxyCharm video, but I had no idea that it was starting to run in this video. Since this video isn’t about lips, but about mascara, I hope the Constructive Criticism Kellys out there can look past it and enjoy the mascara review!

DiceyD Puck says:

I can’t use the spikey, plasticky wands. Always poke my eyes out

MarielFigueroa says:

I love this mascara but I have very long, very curly lashes so they only intensify that and look beautiful. If you have straight lashes and your eyes water a lot… I don’t think you’ll enjoy it very much…

Camilla Prehn says:

How is it compared to rollerlash?

T Phipps says:

Actually, I have small size mascaras that came in my Birchbox and the wand does not look like the same wand as in your video. Maybe if I had the full size, the brush would be better (not so big).

katebeautyx says:

I do like this mascara but do agree it doesn’t Volumise.

T Phipps says:

I love Bad Gal Bang mascara a lot because my lashes are very short and sparse. I do find the brush difficult because it is so huge. it is a very thick, heavy mascara. I do love it and am wearing it most of the time. I can actually see my lashes! But I wish the brush was smaller.

Zenobia Rice says:

I’m over Benefit mascaras. The roller lash was the only one I ever liked and even it wasn’t the greatest. Mainly the wand I liked

Lisa Smith says:

Always love an honest review. Have a great week…❌✖❌

Pamela Hammonds says:

How would you compare it to Rollerlash?

Nancy says:

It’s a bear to remove even with remover–and I agree with the others that it smudges like crazy!!!


I do like it! You are right is about preference… No volume but for the look that I want is working for me. I purchased this one at the airport and during my trip i dislike at all, but after 6 days I do lile it.

Sarah Schouveller says:

Best opening line ever lol

Ximena Agnone says:

I’m curious as to how it would look with a primer like the one from Lancome. I love the Roller Lash with the Lancome primer. I have short straight lashes.

Heidi Visneski says:

Jen I love u and your content so I watched this but gotta be honest I just can’t get excited about this.

Aspen Spring says:

I have this mascara and had the same volume problem, but I left it open for about a day and it dried out just a little and became amazing! I’d try that.

Chelsea Brittain says:

This mascara was just ok for me. It works but it isn’t amazing. I think it would be better to save your money and buy the roller lash. It’s so good!!

Rebeca Trevino says:

I guess I’ll stick to my beloved Roller lash mascara

Cayla Jones says:

I like the L’Oréal miss manga mascara it’s really thick and makes me look like I have fake lashes

Daisy M. says:

I don’t recommend it bc it’s too watery and would get all over my eyelids. And if you put on a second coat, it clumped.

Caroline Everatt says:

Without doubt this mascara is one of the worst I’ve ever bought in 30 years. Makes lashes clump, spiky and it smudges like crazy. In the uk no returns on makeup unless faulty so expensive mistake

Rebe McPhee says:

Thanks Jen!

Shelbo says:

I don’t like this stuff at all 🙁 it’s so clumpy on me

Maria Carrigan says:

I bought a tiny one at Ulta to try a month ago when it first came out and everyone was raving about it. I HATED it the first two times that I tried it. It gave me 4 really long lashes. So, I tucked it into my drawer and forgot about it for a few weeks. Well, let me tell you that what it really needed was TIME! For some reason, I pulled it out last week and tried it again. I loved it! I wonder if perhaps it thickened up after being open for a few weeks because it seems to be separating my lashes now instead of pulling them together. I will say that my favorite mascara combo now is one coat of Lash Paradise for volume and one of BGB on the top, and one coat of BGB on the bottom lashes. I bought the large tube this weekend at Sephora even though I have not run out of the small tube yet just so that I can open it ahead of time to prepare it before I need it. Also, I haven’t had ANY transfer despite being an oily skin girl.

Teresa D. says:

I also only use it for my lower lash line. Don’t like how it clumps up top but on the bottom it’s amazing.

airenbeauty says:

I found this mascara to be alright mascara. It’s not bad but it’s not amazing either. I just picked up the Las paradise so I am pretty excited to try that

Kirstyn Greer says:

Great review Jen glad I didn’t buy into the hype I’ll just stick to my Essence and L’Oréal. Also wanted to say your hair is looking amazing, I’ve definitely noticed a massive difference in your latest videos. Looks super shiny and so much thicker, have you been using anything new? Xx

Jen LuvsHorror says:

Thanks for the review! My lashes are like yours and I was wondering about this one. Oh and I just wanted to say: your hair was in the way! lol 😉
