    Comments about KORRES Volcanic Mineral Mascara, 01 Black, .27 oz:

    Let me first say, I don't think there is such thing as a perfect mascara. Though this one tries really hard to be though.

    I just received this product today, and that being said, I really haven't been able to give it the test of time to be able to review thoroughly, but I want to give my first impressions of it so far.

    I have naturally black, long & full eyelashes to begin with, so I mostly look for something that would just accentuate the lashes I've already got going for me. I honestly don't think it lengthens because it would be hard for any mascara to lengthen my lashes more, because gravity. To get a good comparison, I applied the mascara to just one of my eye's lashes while leaving my trusty ole everyday drugstore mascara on the other eye (Maybelline Great Lash - waterproof), which I had already applied several hours before. Just as a note, I have used numerous other mascara products before, both expensive and cheap, designer brands & drug store brands. I found that sometimes expensive isn't always better, and thus was why I normally had gone with the trusty old drugstore stuff as my everyday.

    The good news first: 1) It's not clumpy and it doesn't seem to flake. Flaking is very important to me because I wear contacts and I hate getting mascara flakes all in my eyes (under my contacts) or have them all over my face by the end of the day. 2) The texture of it is very smooth, almost waxy even, but not heavy. When I tug on my lashes slightly with it on, it almost seems like I have a thick protective coating over them! I like it! 3) Also, when I tug at my lashes slightly, not nearly as much of it comes off on my fingers as the cheap stuff. It stays put, and seems like it will last longer than the cheap stuff. 3) It definitely does accentuate my lashes and add a little volume, but not "vavavavoom" type volume - in case that's what you're looking for. 4) The brush is really nice. I was really impressed when I pulled it out at how thick it was.

    Bad news next: 1) The Korres mascara did not seem to really add much more volume for me, epecially in comparison to the cheap Great Lash Waterproof (which had actually worn off a good bit after 6 hours or so since original application). I honestly could hardly tell the difference between the two from just looking. That being said also, my everyday drugstore mascara really isn't meant to even be the most volumizing mascara to begin with either... That's why, for super big volume for special occasions, night out, etc I use (also cheap) regular Great Lash non-waterproof. 2) When I opened the Korres Volcanic Mineral Mascara, I was offput immediately by the pungent smell of it - maybe this is because of the "volcanic" minerals in the mascara (?). I can't smell it while wearing it, so it's not a big deal, but that was certainly a little odd. 3) The brush doesn't really seperate. It's a great, large, soft brush, but because it's so thick of a brush, it sweeps along your lashes, not within them. 4) For it to cost what it does, I would expect it to vastly outperform the cheapo my cheapo drugstore stuff, which costs maybe 1/4-1/3 of the price. It *does* seem to outperform the drugstore mascara in general, but only a little. Maybe my expectations were too high.

    I haven't been able to wear this supposedly magical volcanic stuff long term to give a review on how long it lasts, or how difficult it is to get off, or if it will cause a raccoon-look over time, etc, but I feel like those things won't be a problem with it, esecially since it really does seem to stay put.

    If you're looking for something to really pump up the volume big time for a really dramatic eyelash, this may not be what you're looking for...if you're looking for a very high quality "everyday" mascara, that gives a more classic-romantic look, won't flake, doesn't clump and stays put, this is it! This stuff is definitely much better than both the many MAC or Lancome mascaras that I used in the past as well (those weren't as good as even the cheap Maybelline Great Lash if you ask me). This is fantastic quality mascara, and I think my old stuff will probably find a new home far in the back of my makeup drawer!

      Comments about KORRES Volcanic Mineral Mascara, 01 Black, .27 oz:

      Korres Volcanic Mineral Mascara has been my favorite mascara for a year now. Mascara is one of my favorite products and I love trying different brands and types from expensive to inexpensive. I got a deluxe sample of this last year and have not bought or tried any other mascara since. It's a lovely, deep, somewhat glossy black and glides on beautifully. Really lifts your lashes if you apply at the lash line and pull up. I use it with Dior Lash Maximizer and Primer underneath (I use this with all mascaras) and it stays on well even during workouts. Great product! It's hard to find so I'm glad I found it here on Beauty.com.

        Comments about KORRES Volcanic Mineral Mascara, 01 Black, .27 oz:

        So far I am loving this product. It doesn't take too many strokes of the mascara wand to see how it lengthens almost immediately. I am an avid Lancôme Hypnose user, but had a wild hair and decided to try something new. Based on the previous reviews I decided to give it a shot and I am so glad I did!

        I got a trial size of this mascara with the a gift set last year. There were a bunch of other great brands of mascara but out of all of them this was hands down the best looking one! Gives length and volume with no clumping.

            This product is proof that you don't need carcinogens and chemicals in your mascara to have beautiful results. It goes on clump-free, doesn't flake, doesn't run (even during a work-out). My lashes are not particularly thick, but this mascara coats every lash in rich black color, creating an illusion of a lot of volume.

              Comments about KORRES Volcanic Mineral Mascara, 01 Black, .27 oz:

              This mascara is excellent! I have not tried other Korres mascaras, but I've previously worn Givenchy, Physician's Formula Organic Wear and others. This formula is wonderful....not too thick or thin and doesn't require "dry time" as some thinner formulas do. The color is a very rich black, which I like. It lengthens and defines. I already have thick lashes and I didn't notice any extreme addition of volume, especially not with the claims made by Korres. But I really didn't mind too much and for those who want more volume this formula is buildable. I really cannot write enough good things about this mascara -The packaging is nice enough. I have noticed recently it's easy to end up with a lot of product on the tip of the brush, but I can live with that. Although the brush is large, it still lends itself to bottom lash application as well. The only cons: the price (expensive, but worth it!), the bad odor (I don't care for perfumed products and this one is all natural, so I cannot have it both ways). I cannot pinpoint the odor, but I don't imagine anyone will find it pleasant. It dissipates after application. If you're on the fence about this purchase, I'd highly recommend giving it a try.

                  I love this mascara because it doesn't clump - AND it lengthens my lashes! I usually hate wearing mascara because of the mess it makes when my lashes clump. This applies evenly, and looks natural!

                      This mascara goes on really easily. The brush is great at separating out eyelashes and not causing clumps. I have very long eyelashes and have a hard time finding a mascara that will color my lashes all the way to the tip with one stroke - this product did just that. The only reason it is receiving four stars instead of five is because it did flake a little after a few hours of wear.
