Apparently I'm the only person whose eyelashes fall out because of this mascara.

This is probably the best reviewed mascara on the planet, and for the first year I used it, I would've been right there writing a great review with everyone else, because it works GREAT. It separates, curls, lengthens, and is super long wearing and doesn't flake at all. It is literally the holy grail of mascara... until you wear it for too long and it makes all your eyelashes fall out. Yes, you read right. This mascara made almost every single lash fall out of my eyelid with daily use. At first, I used it for days when I wanted extra oomph & special occasions and had no issues, but about a month after I started wearing it daily I started loosing lashes. At first I thought it was another cause, my diet or something? but I did an elimination of everything I'd changed over the past year and nothing helped (but I kept wearing because what little lashes I did have needed all the help they could get). Finally I decided to go on an eye makeup de-tox and that seemed to help a little, but as soon as I started back on the mascara they started falling out again at a higher rate. I complained about it at work & one of my co-workers said she had the same issue with this mascara, it made her lashes fall out as well but not as bad as mine. This was probably 5 years ago now, as far as I know they have not changed the formula. My lashes have never been the same, I used to have long beautiful curly lashes and now they are short, thin, & pin straight. I have tried getting eyelash extensions but my hair is too fragile to support the extension and they fall out or break super quickly. I tried using it again in a sample size I got from a mascara sampler for my wedding when I wanted my lashes to look really nice - my entire honeymoon my lashes fell out and I couldn't wear mascara! After 2 days of use! Truly wild. I'm scared to use the full size I just got in my box, my lashes have only just started to recover after using castor oil & grandelash on them religiously. Anyway, I've never seen a negative review about this product and I just want to warn people. While I agree, it makes you look amazing at first, to me it is so not worth the risk.
