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.

Does what it says
Purchased

I was looking for a mascara that would serve as a comb for my lashes, since most thick brushes don't get in-between my lashes enough, and this one looked promising. It does comb through the lashes very well and adds a lot of length. If you're looking for length alone this is the perfect mascara! I've never seen such length added before. However, with mascara I need more length and separation than body but I still need some body.. and this didn't provide that. I can't complain. It does what it says. I just wouldn't like to have to get both this and the body builder to get the results. I think I'll stick to They're Real! by benefit because it lengthens, separates, and adds volume.

The only mascara I'll use!
Purchased

I got a sample of the body builder and loved it so much I bought two more! I've tried many high end brands and this is by far my favorite! It makes my lAshes so thick and long, and the effect lasts all night as well. It's a nice formula that doesn't flake, smudge, or burn my eyes!

LOVE

This is my absolute favorite mascara!! The only one I don't care to splurge and pay that much for! I almost don't even want to use it all the time because I love it so much. The one I get is the Body Builder.. It's so awesome!

Makes My Lashes Look GORGEOUS, Hard to Take Off
Purchased

I got the Body Builder type. I already have pretty long lashes naturally, so I got the volumizing mascara and it makes my lashes look perfect. If I curl before applying (which I don't always do), it almost looks like I'm wearing falsies. The downside is it takes multiple cotton balls of eye makeup remover per eye to remove and then occasionally I'll still wake up to find some I missed.

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.

A definite Winner
Purchased

I really love this mascara and really anything by this Brand. I had never heard of it before Birchbox and have loved trying the samples they've sent. My eyelashes look long and thick. Love it!

Body Builder Mascara
Purchased

Most mascaras irritate my eyes but I was happy when this one didn't. Plus the Body Builder Mascara made my lashes look fuller and longer. I also liked that it didn't flake all over throughout the day.

Non- Clumpy Length = Amazing!!
Purchased

This mascara is pretty terrific! It gives me length without any clumps. The packaging is super cute and I see myself staying loyal to this mascara (it is hard to find a really good mascara). A+ for this mascara!

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.
