For a sultry nighttime look, combine one of these flirty mascaras with a swipe of theBalm®’s Schwing black liquid eyeliner.

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Pick your mascara of choice. Holding the wand horizontally, wiggle it from base of your lashes to the tips. Apply two coats for an extra oomph.

I have the one with the guy in the suit... and i sat on this mascara waiting to use it for a while.. not sure why i didnt want to use it, but once i finally opened it once and tried it... i was hooked! the brush separates your lashes perfectly - theres no lumping and it seems to lengthen my lashes too! and my lashes are already a mile long - so this makes them look AMAZING! It's a MUST TRY!!

LOVE!

I have sensitivity issues with most mascaras and it is tough to find one that is good for that but also actually does something. I have the "tall, dark and handsome" and like that it lengthens, hasn't clumped up so far and is not bothering my eyes.

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.

Body Builder is an everyday thing

I couldn't decide between the "Tall, Dark & Handsome" and the "Body Builder", so I bought Body Builder because when it comes to lashes, bigger is better! It does boost volume and gives a fringe, like the description says. However, it is not what I expected. It is a good mascara to use for the daytime (work), but I wouldn't recommend it for an evening out/special occasion.

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.

Great for small eyes
Purchased

Tall, Dark & Handsome goes on well for those with small eyes and lashes that can be hard to reach. It lengthens and does add some volume too.

pump up the volume

The body builder is certainly my type so naturally I chose him for my eyes, and can I just say...He really measures up!! I am a big fan and plan to stick with him for a long long time!!

Great Mascara
Purchased

I got the body building mascara. One love the packaging ! to be honest, that's why I bought in the first place. Thought it was very clever. Turns out the mascara is good too !

I hate to admit it...
Purchased

... 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.

I bought this on a whim and am glad I did! I got body builder and it does a great job! It makes my lashes long and thick!
