It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

Does anyone use this? I've been looking at it for a while now but can't make up my mind. It seems like a great idea, but the reviews are kind of split down the middle, either you love it or you hate it.

 

Since the only reviews I really trust are from you lovelies here on BT,  does anyone have an opinion on this mascara?

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I bought it based on a video I saw, but I'm kind of on the fence about it.  I like it as a lash primer, or a casual mascara for a light look.  However, it is next to impossible to get the tightline effect.  The product is a little messy to apply, as it is on the thin side and is goopy.  I'm still playing around with it, maybe I need to practice more to get good results, but I will most likely not repurchase.

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

Thanks for the honest opinion! That's what lots of reviews say, and that's exactly what i don't want! I'm interested in it for the tightlining effect, so maybe I'll pass!

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I haven't found it to be messy at all. But I haven't tried it for tightlining. I didn't buy it for that use. I bought it to use a primer and to coat all my lashes, even the itty bitty ones I usually miss. I love it and would definitely repurchase. I will get the waterproof version next time though. 

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I agree with mberteig.  I, too, was drawn in by the videos but it hasn't really worked for me.  I have a lot of other it Cosmetics products I love, but not this one.

I found a better effect following Wayne Goss's tip of putting a gel liner on an eyelash curler - really lifts the lashes (not so much for the tightlining).

Their Hello Lashes mascara is great though as a mascara - not so much for lengthening or added volume, but a really "my lashes but better", enhanced natural look.  I also like the wand for short lashes.

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I think I'm going to skip this. It doesn't sound like the tightlining effect is that good, so I'll stick with my regular mascara!

 

That's a neat trick that you mentioned from Wayne Goss! I'll have to give that a try - thanks!

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

Yeah, I probably watched those same reviews and ran to get it the next day as my lashes are super skimpy. I like it, but I can't really see that it tight lines. For lashes I use the dior primer now, which I love, and theN I just try tight lining the old fashioned way, which I'm still perfecting. I'm glad I tried it but won't repurchase. 

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I love it! I find it allows me to get really close to the lash line and coat every lash. It's the perfect base for all my favorite mascaras. Smiley Happy

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I tried it! I got it to work well on my right eye for tightlining, but my left eye was a disaster. I'm trying to get my hands on the brow pencil, but it is always sold out, tried it in the store & it seemed pretty good.If I can snag a sample of the CC cream I would love to try it, everyone raves about it.

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I love the CC Cream!

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I have been using it for about a week. I agree that the tightlining effect is not really apparent, but I have trouble getting any product to adhere to my waterlines anyway. I do really like the teeny brush and the wispy look you get by using this solo. I don't do another mascara over it because that just feels like too much product to me.

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I have it and agree with the others, the tighlining did not work well for me. I do love their CC cream. I first got a sample at Ulta then ended up ordering from the IT website.. There are normally pretty good specials on there.

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

Hi JoeAnne - I like the combo of the IT Cosmetic Tightliner/primer and Hello Lashes, I don't really find that the mascara alone does it for me, but together I can get a nice 'fan like' effect with nice separation and length - natural, but much better. I don't try to go too thick with my lashes because I'm always afraid of going to 'tarantula lashes' territory - and I Never have time enough to remove and redo. I have experienced some flaking, not sure why.

 

I've never tried anything else for tightlining, so I might not be the best person to give advice, but it didn't work for me, I keep saying I'll try it again, but it just hasn't happened yet.

 

Having said all of that - I do not think I'd purchase the Tightliner and Hello Lashes by themselves. I got them as part of a collection, so the value was quite good. I would purchase them in a collection in the future, but not by themselves at the full price.There are so many other mascaras out there, this is not my HG.  I'd be thrilled if they came out with a Waterproof option though - I'd try that for sure.

 

I do really like their Bye-Bye Under Eye Concealer, which is not just for the under eye area. I also really like the Bye-Bye Pores loose powder and their brushes are Amazing!! I usually purchase the kits from QVC and the brushes are included. 

 

I'm looking forward to trying more and more of the products from IT's ever expanding cosmetics line. I Really hope that Sephora will begin selling IT Cosmetics sometime soon. I think it's a great brand and I'm so annoyed that I missed out on a 'one time only' value on QVC the other night, which was for a set of 3 Lip Serums that I've not yet tried. Smiley Sad Maybe someone's trying to save me from myself. Smiley Wink I hope that helped some. Talk to you soon. Smiley Happy

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

There is a waterproof version of the Tightline mascara!

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

There is? Where did you see it? I checked on IT's website last night but I didn't see it - did I just miss it? Thanks btw.

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

Just double checked. It's on Ulta's web site. They also have a GWP right now on IT Cosmetics. Smiley Happy

 

BTW, does the "ks" in your username stand for Kansas?

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I really wanted it for the tightlining effect but it doesn't seem like that is easy to achieve so I think I'll skip it. I do want to try more of the brand. I do wish Sephora carried It Cosmetics too because I'm spoiled and hate to pay for shipping!

 

Thanks for the info - I guess I may have to try and teach myself (once again) how to tightline for real!

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

Are you aware Ulta carries IT Cosmetics? You can get free shipping on purchases over $50 and if you go through ebates, you can get cash back also. Smiley Happy

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

Thanks. Yes, I do order from Ulta, but I have to get a $50 shopping cart and there's really nothing else i need from there.

 

I do have a question though. I thought the Tightline mascara was an actual mascara but it seems like it's more of a primer? Does it actually coat the lashes at all? I'm not looking for a primer but if it's a natural looking mascara, I might still give it a go.

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

I believe it's called a primer, but it's black, so yes it looks more like a natural looking mascara in my opinion. 

 

Yeah the $50 minimum for free shipping stinks when you don't need anything else. But I can always find a few things I want from Ulta. And with their buy one, get one half off or buy 2 get 2 free that they have a lot, I find it a fun way to try new things. 

Re: It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara - Thoughts?

Thanks. I think I'll add it to my "maybe" list and see how I feel about it down the road. Or if a good special comes up!
