Grande Cosmetics GrandeFANATIC Fanning and Curling Mascara, 0.37 oz. - REVIEW

  • After trying 764,000 different mascaras I really like this one! Really beautiful volume and holds well without little flakes all over. 10/10 recommend!
  • Love that it’s good for my lashes and creates volume and curl that lasts all day.
  • This is a good black mascara and it defines and stays all day, but the price tag is a bit much for me. I try to stay below $22 for my mascara.
  • I won’t use anything else. This has helped keep my lashes stronger and they look good.
  • The formula seemed like a good one, but it was hard for me to get past the brush. I felt like the widely spaced bristles made my lashes clump together really easily. If you're willing to deal with using a different brush with it, this mascara isn't bad.
  • I really liked this mascara! I prefer a more dramatic lash look so this was right up my alley. The formula is a little wet, so be prepared to use the wand carefully and try not to sneeze or anything for a few minutes after applying. The effects were great. My lashes looked long and full. The price is a little on the higher side, but no higher than many higher end mascaras. The brush is curved and has different length bristles, which took a little getting used to, but once you figure out the best way to use it, works really well to give the desired look.
  • I don't often stray from known premier brands of mascara. I only tried this because it was offered on Vine and I was out. I used the entire tube before writing this review to make sure I could give it a fair review. Most mascaras sort of suck when they're brand new. They can be clumpy, don't cover well, etc... and you need to keep using it for the formula to adjust. I'm not sure why that is, but it's pretty common with almost every brand I've purchased.The wand is honestly too large. We all have smaller lashes in the inside corners of our eyes so graduated wands or just smaller wands in general are nice to have. They work for everyone regardless of eye shape or size and allow you to cover all your lashes without making a mess.It's ok but I'm going back to better brands. For the price, I can either spend the same or just a few dollars more and get a premier brand that I really like. If it were $5 less, I'd consider buying it again but for $25 USD, I'll keep going for my high end brands. I'm either going to go super cheap drugstore or premier brands, I'm not going to do something in-between.
  • I can trully day this máscara os the best máscara today! It worth any single dollar !
  • I was a little skeptical about this mascara after having tried another GrandeCosmetics mascara that I wasn't much of a fan of. I consider myself to be a mascara enthusiast/aficionado...I've been wearing the stuff since I was in middle school and if you strive for a mascara that makes it look like you're wearing falsies. That's my jam.That being said, this stuff was good but the biggest detractor was definitely how freaking LARGE it was. Everything about it, in a bad way. The tube was huge but I could get over that. But the brush...holy cow. I've used probably hundreds of mascara wands and this was a monster sized brush. Literally, the biggest wand I've seen. When it comes to mascara brushes, bigger is not necessarily better. Application for the most part was ok but it was more difficult to maneuver for some of those harder-to-reach lashes than it really should have been.The formula was very nice. Unlike another one of this brand's mascara's, this one did not feel overly waxy or weigh my lashes down in a weird way. It freaking worked and looked amazing- the results lasted several hours as well.If they could fix the brush on this to something that's more a normal size, it would be a 5 star product for me. The extra size brush (that feels at least a good 50% larger than any other brush) was a huge detractor on this product, unfortunately.
  • My only dislike is that you have to scrape so much excess off the brush before using it.Other than that this mascara is fantastic. The coverage, the deep black color, the fanning. All perfect.No crumbles, no racoon eyes. You can build the lashes up any way you like. I don't like my lashes clumped together at all, but I like them dramatic. This mascara and the brush allow for getting each lash built up how I want while keeping my lashes all separated and fanned out.It is like the super man of mascaras. Instant drama.If you don't swipe off the excess first then you will have some clumping but swiping off excess isn't really anything abnormal to have to do, especially when starting off a new tube. I just swipe back into the tube so I'm not wasting it. No biggie to me and especially with the great results, it is worth it. Definitely will buy this one again in the future.
  • K so, I love the definition and volume. I don't like how thick and chunky the tube comes out. There's way too much mascara on the wand. So I have to apply carefully. It doesn't flake. And makes my lashes look almost fake with the amount of volume.
  • When I got this and tried it, saw the brush I was like woah (in shock but actually so very cool). It took an eye to learn how to play with the brush considering my lash type.It’s a large bottle for mascara. It was filled to the brim with product - definitely long lasting. I’m very impressed with this product and the design. It’s does exactly with how its advertised. I wouldn’t hesitate purchasing. I also believe my lashes have gotten longer after using this product.I personally I LOVE this brush and the variety it offers for the different lengths of my lashes. And it definitely lifts my lashes without having to use any tools.I wore it out at night, its easy to come off. Not waterproof though. It is a bit expensive but well worth what it offers.
  • Grande Cosmetics GrandeFANATIC Fanning and Curling Mascara, 0.15 oz.The first thing you notice when taking this mascara out of the box is that the tube is HUGE.So is the wand. Remember Rimmel ScandalEyes in the orange tube? That enormous.I've never seen a bristle pattern quite like this rubber brush either.It took me a few tries to realize how to best use the brush, but you have to kind of roll it/twirl it to apply the mascara well and to fan out the lashes.I managed to get it all over the place while figuring it out, but once you get the trick to it, it's simple to use and gives curled, thickened but also separated lashes.It lengthens too, but I really notice the volume with this because that's more my issue. It's so rare to find a volumizing mascara that also defines and separates lashes!I haven't use it long enough to tell if it is helping to grow lashes or keep them from breaking, but just being able to skip the eyelash curler will help you keep lashes and avoid breakage.Really happy with it! Give yourself some extra time the first time you wear it so you can experiment a bit with the brush.
  • I really like this mascara. It applies smoothly without clumps and I feel like it really makes my lashes look great! The brush is a little weird and took some practice to use without getting mascara on places other than my eyelashes.
  • This mascara gives me the length I want but also gives me clumpy eyelashes. It's relatively a good mascara.
  • This mascara has a very nice and colorful packaging. The wand / applicator is not very big so it's easy to be used even on lower lashes without making a mess. It separates my lashes very well and lifts them up very nicely. I haven't noticed major difference on volume but it adds some length to my lashes overall.
  • Grande Cosmetics GrandeFANATIC Fanning and Curling MascaraI really love this mascara.The wand is HUGE and while it does a nice job, it tends to make this mascara clump.I have resorted to bringing out my disposable mascara spoolies to use instead.I found that the bristles are concentrated on one side and in a weird pattern. I am not a fan of this brush.Two coats add length and volume with a bit of curl which is important since I have super straight lashes. still have to use my heated eyelash curler since this didn't quite curl them - more than likely since my lashes are super straight.This works almost as well as my holy grail made by Tarte.I can even get by with one coat when I am in a hurry.It dries quickly and didn't irritate my dry eyes.No flakes either.IngredientsAqua (Water), Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Synthetic Beeswax, Polyethylene, Glyceryl Stearate, Polyurethane-35, Acacia Senegal Gum, Butylene Glycol, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Polybutene, Glycerin, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Aminomethyl Propanol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylpropanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Caprylyl Glycol, Panthenol, Phenylpropanol, Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1.
  • I really liked this mascara, it is one of the few that actually holds the curl for the whole day. It smudges under my eyes slightly throughout the day but most mascaras do. This does a great job of giving my lashes volume and length and my favorite part is it holds the curl well.
  • I do like this product.The bottle is cute and a little larger so its easier to hold onto.There is a lot of product that's on the wand when you pull it out of the bottle.The part I didn't care for, is that the wand is a little thicker than I would normally like.I'm very clumsy and to get the product on my baby hair on the inner part of my eye, I was getting product all over my nose.
  • AMAZING MASCARA! This large tube of mascara! I took a picture of my chapstick next to it for comparison. It feels nice quality while using it. It did not clump and stayed nice throughout my day. The photo of my eyes is 7hrs after applying. Will buy again!
  • This was my first time trying a "Grande Cosmetics" product and it has mostly been a great experience. The mascara bottle is quite large and the packaging is cute. What makes this mascara stand out from others I have used before is that the brush is quite large and curved. So, it is easy to apply a lot of mascara in one pass. Because of the curved brush, it is also easy to apply to the tops and bottoms of the lashes.My favorite thing about this mascara is that it truly gives my lashes a lot of extra volume! That is not something I can say about other mascaras, even ones that come with primer! My least favorite thing about this mascara is that it does clump a bit. Because of the amount of product that the large brush holds, it is difficult to apply without clumping. I haven't tried thinning it out to see if that helps, but honestly, because of how much volume this mascara easily adds to my lashes, I don't really care! It is my favorite mascara I have used so far so it still gets 5-stars from me!If you read all the way through this review and found it helpful, please consider giving it a "Like" so that other shoppers can find helpful reviews more easily. Thank you!
  • The mascara comes in a pretty colorful tube that is larger than most mascara tubes and is rather easy to hold. The applicator is bulky and big and the mascara is quite clumpy. It isn’t the easy to apply without making a mess. However, it does lengthen and thicken my lashes. I have included before and after pictures.The mascara stays on all day and doesn’t smear. I recently wore it to a funeral and it didn’t run when I cried.
  • I was a little shocked at how large the wand was with this product! It definitely was a little harder to control and be precise, but it seemed to help amp up the volume in my opinion. I do like this mascara based on the results I received after application, I just had to work with the product a bit more to get a precise application. The mascara stayed on all day and I used a makeup remover to take the product off at night and it came off with no problem. Overall, I do like this! I feel like it opens my hooded eyes up more.
  • This is such a wonderful mascara.My lashes are naturally long, but this mascara really makes my lashes look something extra.It doesn’t flake and is easily removed with my cleansing balm.Grande Cosmetics makes great mascara, and this one is a new fave!
  • I like this mascara for the following reasons:It comes in a nice big tube.Wowsa, does it make my lashes look long and full. I have a tough time finding mascara that adds length and volume. My lashes are naturally long soI’m also looking for mascaras that makes them look fuller.After wearing it all day I didn’t have any flaking or transfer (aka-no raccoon eye!)Some drawbacks:It comes out of the tube very clumpy on the brush, I have to remove the excess back into the tube.The brush is also a bit different than what I am used to it.It’s not shaped quite like other brushes but it did okay when running it through my lashes.I did have to use a lash brush to get off some of the excess once it was applied because it did leave a few clumps.Overall, I like it.It’s not my most favorite because of the application issues but it’s worth using because of the amazing volume
  • I really like this mascara once I get it all combed out. I have a lash separator that I comb through while my mascara is still wet. The brush is great for both my top and bottom lashes, and the length and lift are fantastic. It's a little bit of a learning curve to use this brush, and I admit I like standard curved brushes better. But this does what it says, it adds volume, and curls pretty well. I don't use eyelash curlers, so I definitely noticed a nice difference with this.
  • This mascara works pretty well. The only thing I really didn’t like is how big the tube is. The brush is almost a little uncomfortable for my small hands to hold onto. That aside, the formula is pretty good.
  • I really like the packaging and size of this mascara. It took a couple times to figure out a good application method with the brush, but I figured it out after reading the brands recommendation (use the inner curve of the brush to apply to the upper lashes and the outer curve to apply to the bottom lashes). I am a fan of the formula and it does give a nice lift to my lashes. There was a little clumping, but not too bad. All in all, I have to say I really like this mascara would definitely recommend giving it a try.
