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.

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.

So so
Purchased

I had some extra points and really needed a new mascara. I went with the Tall, Dark, and Handsome and was a little underwhelmed. It's definitely dark, which is nice, but it flaked fairly quickly and didn't really have the staying power that I like. I wouldn't buy it again.

Gets clumpy and crusty by end of day
Purchased

I love theBalm products and I was really excited about this mascara. I got the tall, dark, and handsome. It clumps when I first apply it. By the end of the day, it's kind of crusty and heavy on my eyelashes and I can't wait to wash it off.

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.

Awesome!
Purchased

I got the bodybuilder version and it's great! As with any mascara it took me a few applications to get the hang of it, but once I did I was in love. Doesn't clump and you don't need many layers. I didn't really experience the wetness issue I read about in other reviews...it dries quickly enough.

Volumizing, Plus!
Purchased

This mascara definitely pumped up the volume of my lashes, much more so than others I've tried. I was skeptical at first, but really liked the sample and bought it in its full size. I get decent length as well as volume and I think it's a good buy.

Good Mascara to try
Purchased

Good mascara to try for someone looking to make a statement. Though this isn't as great as other mascaras, for the price, it gives you a good volume. Also, I have sensitive skin and did not have an allergic reaction-- definitely a plus.

Tall Dark & Handsome

One of the best mascaras I have tried. No clumps and my lashes look amazing! I'm going to stick with this product and I plan on trying different products from this brand.

Body Builder Rocks!
Purchased

I can never find a mascara that makes my eyelashes look long and beautiful without having a clumpy or thick look. This stuff is amazing! Well worth the price. I've got naturally longer lashes but I always like for them to be full and flattering...Body Builder is the perfect mascara! I will be ordering Tall, Dark and Handsome soon to try it out as well!

Really REALLY adds length
Purchased

I usually use a prep under my mascara however I tried this all by itself and I love it! Made my lashes appear super long and full. And it didn't clump my lashes together which is key to me!
