Color: Very Black 800Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Aging baby boomers, my wife and I don't get out as much as we once did, but we do still go out occasionally. My wife has always used very light makeup, but she still uses mascara to highlight her eyes and long lashes. When she developed a slight tremble in her hands a couple of years ago, she was concerned about applying mascara for fear of injuring her eyes, so I volunteered to apply it. Surprisingly, she accepted my offer. One of her biggest gripes about mascara is its tendency to clump and look messy, so she was glad to try Clump Crusher.

The product comes in a sealed bottle with a separate brush that you can see through the packaging. The brush is slightly curved at the applicator end, which has dozens of very fine bristles about 1.5 mm long. The round brush's handle is about 0.9" in diameter, which makes it easy to hold. That's the obvious stuff.

In use, we both appreciated how the fine bristles separated and coated her lashes evenly with no noticeable clumping. I applied one coat of the mascara to both her eyes around noon yesterday, then we left the house for about seven hours to deliver Christmas presents and have dinner at a restaurant. When we returned, we both examined her eyes and found no smudging or flaking, even with a few tears shed at one stop. Later that evening, my wife removed the mascara with a washcloth and warm soapy water. It removed fairly easily with no visible traces left.

Overall, the Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara appears to be a fine product that works as advertised. My wife is sold on the product.

I bet I've tried a dozen different mascaras, including Cover Girl's regular Lash Blaster. My lashes aren't as full as they used to be, and I wanted to add volume, but every other mascara, including the ones promising "No clumps!" left me with about ten clumps instead of a lot of lashes. I tried the kinds that came with tiny combs, but my lashes would separate and then immediately clump together like Rob Pattinson and Kristin Stewart. Yuck. I had almost no expectations Clump Crusher would be different but for some reason bought it anyway.

I was shocked to see this stuff really works! ZERO clumps! My lashes have noticeably more volume AND stay separate! They're natural-looking, even with two coats (which I don't really need). I was a little wary that the formula wasn't waterproof, but it actually stayed on--no raccoon eyes by the end of the day. I love this stuff! It's my new favorite mascara. Now I just hope Cover Girl doesn't retire it, as makeup companies do with so many products after a year or two on the market.

Color: Very Black 800Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This is not the best Mascara ever. Just so you know, the best is the basic mascara made by ColoreScience. It's perfect. You get long, long lashes, no clumping, the wand is so good you should never throw it away. Just clean it with rubbing alcohol every now and then and use it instead of whatever wand you find inside any other mascara you are using, which you shouldn't be. ColoreScience is the best. But boy, does this come close.

I don't want too much "volume." How thick should your eyelash be before you start looking like Tammy Faye Baker. We want length and color. If your lashes are so sparse you look like Minnie Mouse, buy artificial lashes or, even better, get them individually applied by a make up artist for special occasions. But don't clunk up your lashes so they look gummy. This gives the right amount of lengthening and thickening, even if you put it on with a heavy hand.

CoverGirl Clump Crusher goes on easily. To challenge their "no clumping" claim, I slathered on four coats. Two coats of mascara should be the limit. Three...you're pushing it. Four...get your diploma, you are a Clown College Graduate. But even four layers didn't make my lashes stumpy or weird. They were starting to look overdone, so I stopped there. If you wait a few minutes and let the mascara dry, you can use your lash curler...even a heated one, without creating a mess. YOu get a little flaking and flecking, but not too bad. Still, it's always better to do the curling first. I like the brush, it has an interesting angle and the bristles sweep away a lot of excess product when you brush it on. The curve follows the curve of the eye, so one stroke goes from one end of the lid to the other. Straight brushes can be tricky because they reach only a portion of the lashes. When you go back to do the middle and other end, some lashes end up with too little, some too much mascara.

By the way, I got a great tip from a make up artist: If you use eyeliner on the inner eyelids, your eyes look smaller and harder. Instead, use white or very light blue. It makes your eyes open up and look bigger and younger. Use it on the inner lids top and bottom. Also nothing gets rid of eyebags (I don't mean temporary puffiness from staying up late or partying, but real undereye suitcases), so save your money for the surgery. BUT caffeine does temporarily provide a little bit of shrinkage. Soak cotton balls in cold coffee left from breakfast and place on the bags, lean back and relax for 20 minutes. It should make a difference. I have also heard that Preparation H works, but I believe the formula has been changed. Perhaps we should be checking out the hemmerhoid cream reviews!

Thanks for your patience. I think this mascara is a good deal, easy to use whether you use make up often or only occasionally, and is fairly foolproof.

It took me a try or two to use it in such a way as to get the volume and length without the clumps, but once I figured it out, it worked perfectly. It's a great every day mascara. It's not false-lash volume + length, but it's pretty darn good.

I am a mascara junkie so me rating this as my second favorite is a pretty big deal. First of all I love the bright green packaging totally cute. I have this in very black in water resistant. I love the shape of the wand because it makes it easy to get every eyelash on your eye. You can get the outer corner and the inner corner with ease. Also if you flip the brush upside down it is perfect for your bottom lashes. This mascara doesn't clump,smear,run, or anything bad. This is my go to mascara!

I'm not real picky when it comes to mascara but this one was bad for me. After wearing it for only a couple hours it begins to flake. Worse than any I've ever tried. I gave it a couple weeks but I've had enough. I'm going back to my favorite. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". When will I learn? LOL

No flaking way, Cheryl! We're so sorry the Clump Crusher left your lashes flaking after a few hours; not all what we'd expect, so I can imagine your frustration. Sometimes you can reduce flaking by applying a thin even coat of mascara and leaving it to dry before applying another coat, but if this still doesn't help, try the Professional Washable Waterproof Mascara! This smudge-proof mascara formula resists swipes and smears. What's remarkable about it? It darkens and defines lashes all day, then washes away, remarkably, with soap and water. Flaking will be a thing of the past!

Aaah....I really like this mascara. I was searching for a really good mascara that didn't clump, so I purchased this one only because it had a $1.50 off coupon associated with it. I thought, WTH?, so I bought only one (in black-brown), in case I didn't like it, but now I'm regretting not buying more because the coupon could only be used once.

The wand is curved, which is my first time using a wand like this, and now I'm hooked. I use the arch (the butt or back of the curve) on top of my lashes to help with curling them by gently turning the wand (my wrist) away from me (slightly downward at the root and then slightly upward from the middle of my lashes to the end of them), sometimes with a slight jiggle motion. I use the curve (inside) under my lashes by gently jiggling the lashes from the root to end and then by just brushing them up. I use the side of the wand to help give them a fuller and feathery look and to further push my lashes up, lengthening them, sort of. For my lower lash, I use the all side of the wand to create a fuller look.

The cons I noticed with this mascara:
Non-lengthening (I have to try to provide some length to my lashes).
Raccoon eyes (I had a little, very little darkening under my eyes by the end of the day, and this was after sweating).
Though I apply only once throughout the day, others might one to apply more than this, as this is not a long wear (24 hours, not even 12 hours) mascara.

Overall, I am pleased with my purchase. I've found MY mascara!

I've attached a picture of my third time using this mascara. I used the black-brown mascara for subtly, so my lashes aren't as pronounced as they would have been had I used the black or very black mascara, however, the effect is still present.

Color: Very Black 800Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
1/31/13 UPDATE: I have been using this mascara in Very Black (rather than Brown) and I have upgraded my opinion from 4 to 5 Stars. This is a very good, well priced, every day mascara that is easy to apply, dries quickly and gives one's lashes moderate volume and length.

ORIGINAL REVIEW: I am quite specific in my mascara preferences and I usually don't care for curved brushes. This brush, however is excellent. Shaped like a smile or a wedge (thicker in the center and tapered at the ends), the brush is composed of many short plastic spikes that move easily through the lashes while depositing lots of pigment at the lash roots. The shape of the brush allows for quick and even application even at the more difficult to reach areas: the inner and outer corners, the lower lashes. It is because of this innovative brush that I would recommend this mascara over CoverGirl Lashblast Mascara, Very Black 800, which is a very good, everyday product.

This mascara is smooth and somewhat glossy in Brown and matte in Very Black. It applies evenly without much clumping as long as you kept the brush moving. "Build-ability", the ability to apply multiple coats one over the other was not a problem as long as the mascara had not dried fully. Once dried, the mascara would clump somewhat when a fresh coat was applied.....not terrible but not exactly what I would call a "Clump Crusher" either. My current favorite "dime store" mascara is L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara, Blackest Black and I can apply it in the morning before work and then at 7 pm reapply a coat for a more dramatic effect before going out to dinner. You also can do this with "Clump Crusher", but not with the same voluminous effect.

This mascara comes in four shades: Very Black, Black, Black Brown, and Brown. I originally tested the Brown which I found to be extremely, surprisingly light in color, even lighter than my normal lashes. I would only recommend the Brown for extremely fair, light blondes or perhaps strawberry blondes with pale, pale lashes who are interested in a casual, natural look. Otherwise, for anyone else, I would not go lighter than the Black Brown.

This mascara is an excellent choice if you are interested in natural looking lashes with moderate volume and length.

I have very long lashes, but they're light at the ends. I need very little mascara, so I've been search for one that goes on easy and light and does not clump. This does the trick, and well. Lasta all day, doesn't smudge and easily washes off.
