theBalm® cosmetics “what’s your type” mascara

Staying in a long-term relationship with a mascara has always been a challenge—our wandering eyes have trouble committing to a single formula for too long. Go ahead and play the field with theBalm®’s handsome duo. Take your pick from two fabulous formulas: “tall, dark, and handsome” adds dramatic length to sparse lashes, while “the body builder” boosts volume for a full, luscious fringe.

Clumpy mess
Purchased

I really had high hopes. I really thought that this mascara would be amazing, unfortunately, it clumps like crazy. I even tried using a different mascara wand, but it must be the formula. I do not suggest this product. Such a disappointment.

Nah.

I have long, straight eyelashes. It did not keep them curled and they flaked. Not cool dude. I will stick to Maybelline - 'Cause it doesn't flake and keeps curls. Also, not happy about spending $26.00 (including shipping to Alaska) for a mascara.

Tried the body builder

I have long but sparse lashes. I've been looking for a good thickening mascara. This was not it. It just clumped all of them together and I looked like a spider.

I wanted to love this mascara...
Purchased

I 'm a huge fan of theBalm cosmetics. I pretty much love every product they have. They are a great brand.

BUT this mascara was bad. I bought the Tall Dark & Handsome one. The formula was thick & a little on the dry side. It didn't make my eyelashes look all that much longer, it was pretty ineffective.

Sadly, I will not purchase this mascara again.

Clumps quickly
Purchased

I used the tall, dark, and handsome mascara for about 4 days, and day 2 it started to get clumpy like old mascara. I thought I would give this product a try because of the fun name, but it definitely was not worth the money.

I hate to admit it...

... This mascara is not my fave. I was reeling by their adorable marketing and taglines, but found the product fell short. Flaky mascara is pretty much the worst, and it's no fun futzing around with something that's stuck on your eyeball in the middle of your day.

Not my favorite!

I love thick mascara brushed and this is not one of those. It wasn't awful, but it didn't do what I wanted it to. It's not a horrible mascara. Just not the kind of brush i like.

Tall, Dark, and Doesn't Come Off
Purchased

Nowhere on the packaging does it say that this mascara is waterproof, yet it does NOT come off with water! I had to scrub my face super hard to get it off! I was very turned off because I can't wash my face everyday or it will dry out! I wish I would have purchased a different mascara! I typically use Clinique and I went outside my comfort zone and purchased this, big mistake! It is lack luster, doesn't provide great length or volume. It's just about as good as a drugstore brand. Very disappointed.

Body builder

This was product started off great but after a few uses it started to lump. I Usually like the balm but this was a bust. Will not buy again.

dislike the brush
Purchased

When I ran out of my favorite brand of mascara, it tragically was on backorder, so I purchased the "tall dark and handsome" because I really like theBalm products and felt that my lashes are "sparse". This mascara is pretty decent when used with a different applicator, but the applicator that comes with it leads to even more sparse lashes.
