I'm a firm believer in the power of mascara. Even if I don't feel like putting on a whole face of makeup, I can still avoid looking like an extra from The Walking Dead by just applying mascara. But that mascara must lengthen, lift, and plump my lashes. I got all of that AND a very interesting wand when I tried It Cosmetics new Hello Lashes+ mascara. The formula is very high quality and even feels good on my lashes. The wand applicator is a little tricky at first. Turn the tube upside down and roll it between your palms. It will pull the pigment to the brush and allow for better application. The wand feels almost like an eyelash comb because it literally coats every single one of my lashes, even the bottom ones! Because of the clever design of the brush head, it coats all my lashes, including my inner corners, and it really lengthens them, too! I couldn't believe how long and lush my lashes looked after using Hello Lashes+. It stayed on almost all day, and it was easier to remove than most mascaras. I just used a cotton ball soaked in micellar water, and it just wiped it all away! That means it is super gentle on my lashes. My lashes looked like falsies without all the fuss and muss. The wand may take a little bit of practice. But once you get the hang of it, you'll see how it completely coats every single lash, short or long! I love every product It Cosmetics makes, and now this new Hello Lashes+ mascara is another instant fave!
I was given a free sample of It Cosmetics Hello Lashes+ to try. I'll start with the good.
I like how black it is, even before a second coat. I also like how it fans out my lashes. My favorite thing about this mascara is the applicator. The rounded tip does a good job of coating the shorter lashes close to the tear ducts as well as the lower lash line. It's easy to remove, and all it took for me was a cotton pad with micellar water held to the lashes for 15, 20 seconds and it came right off.
Sadly, the wear wasn't so great for me. I applied a single coat the first time, because I was rushing out of the house and decided to throw on some lip gloss and mascara as an afterthought. It looked fine - nothing truly impressive, but a nice lift and a little separation. Throughout the day, I noticed a couple flecks of mascara on my cheeks, and gave it the benefit of the doubt. The next day, I applied two light coats, as I would normally do. My lashes felt a bit "crunchy", which I wasn't crazy about. I experienced flaking within just a few hours. When I got home, my cheeks were covered with several flecks of mascara…and a few lashes.
I was disappointed because I've liked the last two mascaras I've had from It Cosmetics, and was even a repeat buyer of one, so this was not what I expected. I'd buy previous formulas, and even future ones, but, sadly, Hello Lashes+ is not for me. If my lashes feel this brittle in the summer months, they'd never be able to survive a Midwest winter using this mascara.

I don't understand any of the bad reviews. I have tried different tubing mascaras and I LOVE THIS ONE!! Not clumpy stays all day, doesn't run, isn't itchy just wonderful! I have a spot even where my top lashes on one eyelid isn't very full but this mascara helps fill it out. LOVE it!!!

I ordered this mascara by mistake, but I figured I would give it a try anyway This mascara is easy to apply, easier to remove, and I love that I can direct my lashes where they need to be. The applicator tip is a game changer.

This mascara is the worst IT Cosmetics has ever sold. It took 4 or 5 coats, and even then I looked like I hardly had any lashes, and those that showed looked short and stubby. I'll probably keep the 2 that I ordered as spares but I'm going back to another brand. Very disappointing. Not as good as the original Hello Lashes...and that isn't as good as my favorite brand.

I bought this because I really liked the shape of the brush. The mascara is okay but it isn't as good as IT Lash Blowout mascara, which gives me a fuller look and the mascara doesn't make my eyes itchy.

By far my favorite IT mascara!!! I've tried all of them and this is the best one for me! Love how full it makes my lashes!
Leebo from FL
Overall I really like this product. The brush is easy to use and makes my lashes look long and fairly thick. However, there is some "fall out" under my eyes most times I use this.

The tube I have of this mascara is black so I hope I'm buying the same formula and that they didnt change it. I dont remember buying it, maybe it was a free gift, but when I had to toss my last Tarte mascara I had this one in my cabinet and decided to try it. At first the wand was tricky but once I got used to it that end piece really fills out the shorter corner lashes and now I cant imagine going back to a regular wand. I dont think it has made my lashes longer or thicker, but it goes on clump free. I have short lashes but this mascara really defines them. I havent had the flaking others have complained about. Removes easily. Dont sleep in it or you wake up with major racoon eyes.

I was using the same product for years. One day I decided to try this mascara because I was using another skincare product of yours. Now I am hooked. I buy 2 at a time so I never run out! Makes my lashes stunning and I'm often complimented.

This mascara made my lashes look short and fall out. Opposite of what it's supposed to do. Hard to remove as well. Going to stick with my tried and true Lancome mascaras

The formula used in the mascara felt like plastic on my eyelashes. I did not see any additional volume on my lashes. I will not be using this mascara. Save your money.

I love this product, it does not clump and does stay on all day.

Goes on and looks good but if you press your lashes after they stick together (not a good look after nap). Comes off easy without hurting lashes.

I like this it Cosmetics mascara offering better than super hero. It does seem to "lengthen" and volumize my lashes. My lashes are blonde and sparse....almost invisible without mascara. I feel like I have to spend a while on each eye to get the results I like. Almost like I can never get enough mascara on the brush.

I use only tubing mascaras and they all vary but thus one is the most consistent and glamorous. It does not flake like some others on my lower lashes and it is easy to comb thru so you don't get a clumpy look before it dries. It is the best for events or even every day wear

This mascara makes my eyes very red and burn I cant use it

SMajor from North Carolina
I really like this mascara & the applicator brush is the best! I love the rounded tip that helps me separate my lashes easily. It gives great coverage & can be built up for heavier coverage but be careful when it's time for new bottle, it can get cakey on lashes or clumpy is probably a better description. Overall, I really like this mascara & would recommend it!

Not a great product. I am used to using a tubular mascara, however this was difficult to apply and did nothing to lengthen my lashes.
melissam19 from New York
Love how easy it is to take this mascara off. Best part is that it doesn't make me look like a racoon if I go in water/shower or fall asleep with it on.
