i have naturally long lashes that don't hold a curl very well but this mascara never weighs my lashes down and the brush coats every lash and really lengthens

Buxom Lash - the best mascara out there!!

I am such a huge fan of Buxom Lash mascara (and in fact the entire Bare Escentuals line). I purchased both this mascara, and the extremely highly (and probably over-) rated Dior Show mascara. Buxom Lash is a much better product. The wand's bristles are hard and stiff, and as a result it is very easy to avoid clumps - you can see them on the wand, so just wipe them off prior to application, and it goes on very smoothly. The color is super dark, dramatic black. It thickens, volumizes and lengthens lashes. It is super long-lasting, and won't smudge at all. In fact, it takes a good eye makeup remover to take this off at night (I use Bliss Lid + Lash Wash Makeup remover, which is very gentle yet effective.) I do wish there was a waterproof version though - I trust this product for all day use, but certainly not for going to the pool or beach or anywhere I will be sweating heavily. I also love that this product is paraben free, Bare Escentuals products always seem so much more natural and generally higher quality than other cosmetics lines. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="5034696985442101964-full" data-show="5034696985442101964-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Absolutely Waterproof!

I was so skeptical about trying this mascara. I absolutely love the original Buxom mascara in Blackest Black so I was afraid that the waterproof version would not have the same volumizing power, consistency, etc. I am quite pleasantly surprised as to how much I love this! The consistency is the same as the original, in between a mousse and liquid. If you like dry mascaras, this is definitely for you. It's not clumpy and coats my short, thin, Asian eyelashes very nicely. There's definitely more volume, but not length, after applying this mascara. I'm okay with this because the mascara doesn't claim to have lengthening powers. They separate pretty nicely, but historically I only like to put on one coat of mascara. I also have not tried it with curled lashes, so I apologize I cannot attest to the curl staying power. What I am most impressed by is how waterproof this is! I wore this to the gym, only mascara, no eyeliner, foundation, primer, etc. After an hour and a half of intense cardio workouts, weight lifting, and cross-training, it did not budge, flake, or smear at all! I must admit that I sweat A LOT. I honestly have never met anyone, guy or girl, that sweats more than I do, it's pretty gross but weirdly impressive at the same time? My face was streaming and I was consistently wiping my entire face with my workout towel throughout. At the end of my workout, I checked the towel and no transfer! I looked in the mirror and it still looked perfect. I could not believe it. This is the best waterproof mascara I've ever had and will definitely be repurchasing.

Stays put!

In all fairness, I didn't intend to buy the waterproof version of this mascara. The sales associate directed me to it and I didn't look at the box. I have used the non waterproof version and love it. I can attest to the staying power of this mascara though. My normal makeup remover wipes will not take off this mascara and I have to resort to cold cream, which can be a little messy and gets in my eyes. Usually I reapply after a few seconds to get that extra curl and volume but this is too clumpy to do that very well. It doesn't go on as smoothly as the normal version and is too difficult to remove, but if you swim a lot or need a waterproof mascara for some reason, this may be for you.

My all time favorite mascara!! I have naturally long and thick lashes and I love how it lengthens without adding too much volume or clumping.

Naturally Beautiful Lashes

I wanted a new mascara after my go to was discontinued and Sephora had a test kit with 5 high end brands that included a voucher for the mascara you like the most. This was the surprise winner, for me. I have long eyelashes. Average thickness. I had never even considered this because of the wand. I normally go for the thick (Urban Decay Perversion type) wands that really grab and layer on the product. This wand is gentle in comparison but it is super efficient. It works into every little hair and coats evenly. I think that is why this is the first mascara I've ever used that really is clump proof with patient application. No flaking. A bit of transfer after 6-8 hours because I wear sunscreen but minimal compared to others. I love how a quick coat or two gives my lashes a natural look with volume the roots and a nice tapered end. The thick blocked off tarantula leg tips on eyelashes are a pet-peeve, for me. I really didn't expect the "vitamin enriched formula" to pay off but after using this for the last month my lashes are getting a little thicker. I can see how this would not work for anyone with lashes on the shorter side. It really isn't a dramatic mascara. You aren't going to get false lash thickness or super extended length but if you're going for natural at it's best, this is something you should try.

My lashes are very straight and I cannot find a mascara that will hold them in place after I curl them. I hear waterproof mascara is good for that...? I just don’t know what to buy!

I have normal length lashes and they will look good for the first 5 minutes then They will fall. I need a non flaky, long lasting, mascara that will keep my lashes up all day. Can you recommend something?

I agree with the ladies Essence @Lash Princess Mascara 2 Pack is amazing stuff and cheap but my very good friend who is Vietnamese and has similar story, loves using Buxoms’s @Lash Volumizing Mascara . Not sure if she’s used Essence or not, I’ve used Buxom and it’s great but just love Essence more.

Since a bunch of people already went for my number one (Better than Sex), i’ll leave you with my number two - Buxom! Much cheaper and veryyy large tube. I use this more for a day look and use Better than Sex for a night look or smokey eye effect.
