    Hourglass - Caution Extreme Lash Mascara

    Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara Reviews

    Finally no transfer!
    I bought the travel size of this mascara to try it out but will definitely be repurchasing the full size! I struggle so much with mascara transferring under my eyes but this one will stay put all day! I’ve had better mascaras in terms of lengthening and volume but will gladly trade that for zero panda eyes.
    Great Mascara
    If you're looking for a very dark, lengthening mascara this is the one for you. It even adds a little volume without causing clumps. Highly recommended!
    I generally love anything Hourglass but this mascara left me feeling confused.It's not a bad one,it gives a decent amount of volume BUT it sheds!I return home in the evening only to find bits and pieces ant tiny black particles all over my lower lash line ,the inner corner of my eye and all over my face.Too bad!
    Great mascara / Отличная тушь, но такая же ексть и у остальных
    Excellent mascara, does not lump, the wand provides an open look, and curled eyelashes. Very similar to Benefit Roller Lash, but more durable and even with a careless application will not make clump up your lashes. отличная тушь, не дешает комочков, четочка обеспечивает распахнутый взгляд, и подкрученые ресницы. Очень похоже на Benefit Roller Lash, но более стойкая и даже при неосторожном нанесении не наделает вам комков
    Pretty good
    Acts like waterproof mascara. Does not smudge, in fact, takes a while to get it off. You can get a full-on spiderweb on with this one. Maybe if you work for 10hours in extreme conditions, this mascara might wear down a bit.
    The mascara you've been searching for...
    I've tried so many mascaras over the years but this is by far the best to date. The brush is slim so you can get into all the awkward bits and for me this is a one application product. No smudging and I personally love the shape of the packaging as it's easy to hold.
    Good but packaging lets it down
    Overall this is a good daily mascara and the applicator brush is a nice one, giving even coverage and nice thick lashes. However the prism shaped tube tends not to close that well so I've found it has dried out quicker than my other mascaras in normal tubes so I've had to throw it out sooner than I expected at the price.
    Favorite by far!
    I have shortish, straight eyelashes and somewhat deep eyelids. Every mascara I've used up until now looks great for all of 40 minutes, but not this. I put it on in the morning and it is still going strong at 10pm! Not one sign of smudging, my lashes are defined and lengthy. Love it!
    Very good mascara
    It's a very nice mascara and creates beautiful intense black lashes! I love how it looks on me, but I have long lashes and it transfers a lot under my eyebrows so I can't give it 5 stars.
    No smudge
    It really works your lashes way up to longer and bigger for a certain amount of time only. If you have very straight lashes then they might fall down. It does not smudge!
    Too good to be true
    I honestly think this will be the reason I give up fake eyelashes - it's almost too good to be true. Just make sure you take the excess product off and prepare to be amazed!
    Incredible mascara
    This is the best mascara I’ve tried. I have very fair, short lashes and after a couple of wiggles with the brush my eyelashes look amazing. It adds so much jet black volume, lengthens and somehow makes me look like I have more than five eyelashes. There is a tiny bit of transfer through the day however it’s nothing that can’t be swept away or fixed by using a good eye primer. Incredible, and I don’t usually rate mascaras.
    It's ok - nothing amazing.
    This is an average mascara, it's not bad, but it's not amazing either. It is lengthening, but it leaves a bit of clump. Too Faced Better Than Sex is much much better than this if you're looking for that high impact look.
    Would not recommend
    I didn't like this mascara at all, in fact I have ordered another! Even with one application it leaves small clumps on the eyelashes and I have to remove them with a brush. Not what a busy woman wants to do. I am afraid I would not recommend this mascara.
    hourglass caution extreme
    I wanted to like it, but it was far too dry and claggy from the very first use. Don't waste money on this- there are better, and cheaper mascaras out there.
    Beautiful but flakes
    Glad I got the small size to try first. It's a beautiful and dramatic mascara but it flakes right away on me, which other mascaras don't really do.
    This is by FAR the best mascara I have EVER used. Genuinely I'm over the moon about how good this is for me. I have pretty normal lashes, they're dark, can hold a curl but not particularly long or full. First coat I wasn't overly impressed but how quickly it built up after a second coat was astounding. Nice thick, long lashes without flaking or being spidery, just pretty. A hugely important thing for me as well, is it's not scented (I don't think) or not noticeably. I have very sensitive eyes and they water and sweat like crazy so if an eye product is too scented it just literally melts off. This doesn't bother them at all and stays perfect all day AND is easy to remove. In love.
    unfortunate that not working for the straight hairs
    The Mascara itself is easy to use, and few touches make your lashes bloom. Only downside is the product is heavy that if you have straight thick hair, it kills the curl of the lashes. If you are unsure, try it for the sample size first, as I did.
    Mascara of joy
    I got this originally in a gift calendar but was hooked so bought it again twice now. I'm super allergic to mascaras but this doesn't bother my sensitive eyes at all. The colour is lovely and my small straight lashes suddenly become huge full and fluffy! I buy the tiny size one as I like to use a new mascara every three months to keep things clean and this lasts about four to 5 if pushed.
    I have a love
    I love this mascara so much.
    Holy Grail Mascara
    I'd never want to but if I HAD to choose only one mascara it would be Caution. The brush, the texture, the pay-off....and the packaging is hard to beat. Volume and length with a brush that grips your lashes with just the right amount of product. I have super long lashes (thanks dad) so mascara was never something I invested in but this stuff is beautiful. As always, impeccable quality from Hourglass.
    All time favourite
    This is my all time favourite mascara - does not clump, does not smudge, lasts ages - just perfect in every way.
    By far my favorite mascara till now!! It really transforms my lashes without clumping. Stays looking great all day!! Would purchase it over and over again without a doubt.
    Great product
    Very good quality mascara
    Yes yess yesssss!!
    It’s just plain down amazing. I used to use Lancôme’s award winner but think I will be changing over to this. I always find my mascara tends to dry out quickly, which is particularly annoying when you’ve spent a lot on it. This one is great because I bought the travel size. My lashes are ridiculously long with no clumps it almost works too well lol! This is a fake lash look if you ever wanted one - without the fuss of actually applying them.
    Fantastic product! Very happy with this mascara - possibly the best I've tried! Will definitely be purchasing again.
    It's not that bad but it's not amazing either. It brushes the lashes well, but I expected more volume and definition. A little hard to wash away but if you have no issue rubbing your eyes, it's fine.
    I have never found a mascara that I have absolutely loved. It really makes your lashes so long with lots of volume. I love it so much, this is a must!
    Not as good as described
    Does not stay on well. Smudges
    Very easy to use. Only needs one application and it gives dramatic lashes. I have fine/thin lashes but this makes my eyes look bigger. And the mascara does not flake. This is the third time I have bought this mascara because its SO GOOD!
    If I could give 3 1/2 stars I would
    It's the best vegan mascara I've tried so far. It took a few attempts to get the correct lash coverage, it was quite easy to overload the brush. As a contact lens wearer I think it irritates them a little but not badly. It does smudge, I'd like a waterproof version but I'm not sure if some of that is down to my moisturiser given other reviews.
    Terrible shelf life
    I love this mascara for the first few weeks, it’s strong, and builds a good wide eye lash, but find that it quickly changes consistency and becomes clumpy and dry on the lash. It really doesn’t last long, so for that reason, I won’t be buying it again.
    Really disappointed. Had hoped that it would hold a curl, since everyone commented how well it sits (no smudging under the eyes), but no such luck. Just dry and chunky looking.
    This is the best mascara I have ever used. Gives you extreme length and thickness which lasts all day. Will definitely purchase again.
    Hourglass extreme caution mascara.
    The mascara looks great and does not need many coats to get a good effect. However, the journalist who recommended it said it needed a very good make-up remover to take it off, but I've found that tears work well. In cold weather, my eyes are sensitive and I can cry as soon as I step out of the door. Not a good look. But, it looks great as long as 1) it isn't too cold or 2) I stay indoors . Other than those factors, it looks great!
    I love hourglass products but I wasn't a big fan of this. I found it kind of difficult to use - quite clumpy especially at the ends of my lashes, I found myself always having to pinch the ends of my lashes after so they didn't look so caked with mascara. It does last all day but I didn't like what it looked like in the first place so this didn't really make a difference to me. I went back to my urban decay perversion mascara after a few uses of this.
    Absolutely fantastic
    This is the mascara to end all mascaras. I’m a bit of a makeup fiend, and have tried every mascara under the sun - high end, affordable, mid range... this one is wonderful. It lengthens, volumises, and stays on all day and all night. It does not flake and unlike some mascaras, it’s awesome from the moment you open in first - no need to use it a few times to get rid of that annoying initial “wetness”. This is my new go to and I just purchased two more just so I never run out.
    The One and Only!
    I can leave without any cosmetic product apart from mascara. And I have tried many.... from Benefit and Lancome to Terry and Chantecaille Faux Cils. Also, I would spend as much as necessary for a great mascara, but I was delighted when I found this average priced one that gives amazing results. It is not clumpy, it doesn't smudge and it looks great for a whole day. If you need a great mascara, just buy it. Don't be put off by the bad reviews, they must be attributed to a lack of skill in the application which I also don't get as it is so easy to apply.
    Worst mascara I have ever used. Terribly clumpy. I tried it twice thinking usually hourglass are fab and love everything I’ve ever tried...but this is beyond terrible! I’ve used really cheap mascara that does a much better job. Save your money unless you like spider leg lashes.
    Very clumpy, very flaky.. didnt do my lashes any justice. Will stick to my Stila one!
    Love love love this mascara
    I've tried lots of high-end mascaras but this is by far my favourite. It adds lots of lengths and it is very easy to apply more coats. It isn't clumpy at all and wore well for 10 hours.
    I’m a makeup ignoramus, so went with a Sali Hughes recommendation on this. Lashes are now longer than The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. And given that my skin is greasier than an Alaskan seabird post Exxon Valdez, it’s stayed put. There is no transference at all. Bloody lovely stuff.
    Very Good
    I used to use Stila HUGE lash for my mascara, and I still love it but I was curious to try this one out. This lengthens like crazy and sort of creates volume to, but I still feel like Stila does it all a little better. All in all, good mascara but not sure if I would buy again.
    Amazing mascara
    I have been looking for ages for a good, no smudging mascara to replace my Lancome Hypnose. I have finally found it! I got a travel size Caution Extreme Lash Mascara in a Cult Beauty box and I will definitely repurchase it :X
    Above average
    My mascara checklist. Clumps: None Darkness: Very dark Smudges: None (and I am prone to smudges) Curl: Heavy consistency and causes drooping of the lashes Length: Good, above average I would grade. Volume: Again, good but nothing to write home about. Removal: Easy to remove, doesn't pull out the lashes
    Terrible - clumps, do not buy
    I do not understand how people are singing praises for this mascara. My only explanation is that they still think the spider clumpy look circa 2007 is still in. It is not. This mascara is ghastly. If you are accustomed to the elegant elongating and yet thickening mascaras of Clinique/Estee Lauder/Dior you will hate this. I look like an evil panda wearing this. Don't waste your money.
    My favourite so far
    Fantastic mascara, doesn't smudge, stays for hours... but unfortunately it dries very quickly!
    Best mascara I have ever used
    I couldn’t recommend this enough! Made my lashes look so much longer and thicker
    hourglass extreme lash mascara
    Great mascara, stays put for hours, even in a sweaty workout and is easy to remove with gentle eye make up remover, or just warm water and a flannel.
    The best mascara I've EVER used!
    Oh boy. I have been on the hunt for the best mascara - I've tried all of the top recommended ones for big, fluttery, gorgeous lashes and this one reigns supreme. Buildable, smudge free, holds a curl - honestly I'm so in love with this mascara. So so so worth the price, I don't think I'll ever look back!
    Loving every lash of it!
    Just to get things straight - not my lashes though haha- I love them curled and long and black and buildable. And this one checks all my boxes. For reference, I also love Lights Camera Lashes from Tarte and L'Oreal Unlimited. I got the mini size just to play it safe, but I'll be ordering the full-size next time.
    This excellent mascara is the very best there is. After having tried many different brands this is simply perfect in every way.
    Great mascara
    I'd been struggling to find a mascara that didn't effect my eyes and have been please to find this one gives me no trouble. It gives a nice lengthening look without clumping and the brush is not too thick.
    It’s a no from me
    Pros: lengthens, lifts lashes. Cons: curl doesn’t stay, hard to take off, smudges during the day.
    The bests
    It is the best mascara I have ever used
    Very good mascara
    I do not have very good lashes. I am blonde, pale and try to find a good mascara for day, but also for night. I found it!! It is very good, easy to apply, stays all day and it did not crease. I tried the sample size first, and I love it.
    I have extremely oily eyelids. This mascara won't smudge after 10 hours at work. It doesn't look very thick with only one coat but I am very happy with the non-smudge effect. I am ordering another two small tubes for my handbag and office.
    Really nice
    It's a bit drier than I usually like but makes my lashes very thick and beautiful.
    Great mascara
    Really thickens and lengthens lashes - doesn’t smudge
    Does not smudge!
    I couldn't believe the hype, but it's hype worthy! My eyelids and eyes are shaped in a way that every mascara, even waterproof, smudges. This one doesn't! I no longer have panda eyes, and the lengthening effect is quite impressive. Definitely my HG now.
    Best Ever
    Easy on, easy off, but never moves in between. Beautiful packaging, and cruelty-free!
    Amazing mascara!
    Great brush and formula, it gives my lashes a lot of length and volume with only a few coats :)
    Adds length to your lashes
    This mascara is really good, it makes your lashes very long and applies smoothly. You can build it up without lashes becoming clumpy and thick. It makes your lashes long and thin. It has a very thin consistency but overall very good, It works well with other mascaras too. Also it is very black. When applying it, my lashes do look like the campaign pictures shot by Hourglass and Cult Beauty.
    The blackest mascara
    Bought this after seeing rave reviews and it didn't disappoint. My lashes looked long and spidery, and didn't smudge throughout the day. Only downside is you'll need a decent eye make up remover to get this mascara off as it doesn't budge easy. It also starts to speckle when it starts to dry out.
    I had a mini one to try as a gift and I'm hooked. Now I'm buying another its so good. Thick glossy dark lashes without several coats. I'm not allergic which I often am and it comes off with my usual cleansing balm. I love it!
    Love the look, not so much the reaction
    This is a beautiful mascara. Applies smoothly and makes even sparse lashes look long and luscious. But there is an unfortunate, though minor, itchy reaction if it stays in contact with the skin for too long.
    Hourglass mascara
    Absolutely brilliant mascara.
    Best mascara ever!
    I used to exclusively use the Better Than Sex mascara from Too Faced (which I still enjoy), but when I tried this, I was shook. This mascara is, without a doubt, the best one I’ve used ever. It seperates my lashes so well and lengthens them a lot. It looks gorgeous! Would recommend this to everyone.
    Mascara gods smiled on me
    This is seriously the best mascara I have ever used. I got a small sample size in an xmas box and have since bought a full sized one. It makes my small straight lashes seem lush and full and retains a curl from using curler, such a nice product. Also I'm often sensitive to eye products, but have not had any reaction to this one at all. So happy!
    I hate it
    This is seriously the worst mascara I've ever had: it gives no volume or whatsoever, in fact, it makes my lashes look thinner than they are. Never have I ever experienced anything like that...Definitely won't repurchase it!
    I absolutely love it. I have invisible lashes but this mascara makes my lashes so full of life.
    Hourglass mascara
    Really great mascara. As well as the beautiful packaging which makes it lovely to hold and gorgeous to look at, the mascara itself is plentiful and goes on a treat. It lasts all day, and I love it. Don’t delay buy today, you won’t regret it!
    Holy Grail
    The best mascara I've ever tried. I'll stick to it...it's a winner. For those who are not big lovers of falsies and prefer a good extreme effect mascara, this is it. No clumps, it really HOLDS A CURL, no panda eyes even if you sleep with it on lol, and no falling particles!! BUTTTT you need to know how to apply it. And I see why there's some bad reviews here. When you pull the brush out, it comes out full of product, I take the excess on the borders of the product before, and then apply it. Be sure you apply it in a zig zag, right close to the roots of your upper lashes, then slowly close your eye and roll the brush on the opposite side. Repeat this a couple of times for an even 1st coat. Don't worry if a little bit of mascara goes to your lids, simply let it totally dry and them rub it off with a clean mascara or brow brush (even over eyeshadows, they will stay in place anywhere except for the eyeliner, but as this is probably black as well you don't need to clean over it) 5 of 5, cant imagine myself wearing any other mascara after this (and trust me I have tried almost all of them lol)
    Pretty good
    I've always been a fan of drugstore mascaras, though most of my make up is high end, I never believed in high end mascaras. I've decided to try this mascara by Hourglass, after a recommendation from my friend. The packaging is gorgeous, and it feels heavy and luxurious. As for the product itself, I like the formula, it looks somewhat natural, gives length to your lashes, doesn't smudge, though it can be a bit clumpy if you try to build it up, and that's the only thing I disliked about it. Over all I liked it, but I still believe drugstore mascaras are great even if you're a high end make up lover.
    Love it
    No smudge even when sleeping or yawning...makes eyelashes longer naturally.
    The best
    One of my favourite mascaras ever, this is already my second one. It gives your lashes great length and volume without clumping.
    Amazing mascara.
    This has to be the best mascara I’ve ever used. My lashes are dark, but grow straight out at 90 degree angles. They don’t hold a curl, so they never look long. Until this. The formula is sufficiently ‘strong’ enough, to dry quickly and hold a curl, even without lash curlers. I also find I really only need one coat which lengthens beautifully and best of all, it must be the blackest mascara I’ve ever used too. I’ve been using this for the past two weeks. No flakes and no smudges. It removes easily with an oil based remover ( for me) absolutely love it.
    Great product.
    Great mascara, no clogging. Long, full lashes.
    Clumpy on its own
    I was so excited by the idea of this mascara, and absolutely LOVED the packaging when it arrived. I was thoroughly disappointed when I first used it - my lashes looked thick and clumpy for the first time ever. I've learned a trick to use it - curl my lashes, use a more 'gentle' mascara (in my case Glossier), brush through with a spooley, let dry, re-curl, and then do a coat of the hourglass and brush through a lot. My lashes look beautiful after that but on its own it was horridly unnatural and clumpy in a way I've never experienced before!
    Best mascara Ever.
    I have tried so many (maybe tried all of them?) on the market. This is the best. Full, thick lashes and it stays all day! No black shadow or residues under the eye – love this formula, as it is not waterproof but sticks to the lashes and is easy to remove. Genius!
    Stays put like it's waterproof; love this!
    I don't understand the bad reviews! This mascara is really great. It also stays put like it's waterproof. The packaging is so luxe and there's a ton of product. I needed a few tries to figure out the best way to apply: the brush picks up a lot of product, so while pulling the brush from the bottle I wipe off the excess product and then use that side to paint my lashes. I don't curl my lashes, but I'm sure that if I did and then used this mascara, it'd keep them up all day - it's that good. I used to love W3LL PEOPLE's mascara, but it's been discontinued at CB, and I've tried plenty to find a suitable replacement that doesn't smudge or looks clumpy. If you apply this gorgeous mascara like I mentioned above, its just right. Will forever repurchase. I'm really happy with this.
    Does not live up to expectations
    I was so excited to try this mascara. I am definitely a mascara addict and have tried almost every brand on the market over the years. I always end up reverting back to Lancôme definicils as I like long and defined lashes that are not clumpy. My first try with Hourglass was great and I thought it might even surpass Lancôme. However over the next few days the effect was not so good and it started to clump badly. One week after I opened it I had to throw it away. It clumped, flaked, went all fibre like and left deposits (dots) all over my under eye. I always ensure I close the wand tightly after use so I cannot understand how this happened. All in all a waste of money and very disappointing.
    Awful flaky mascara...don't buy, the formula is bad
    I was so excited to buy this, but from the first use it seemed to clump on my lashes and within a few days it became dry and flaky and shed under my eyes. It even made my eyes a bit sore, very disappointed with my purchase. Don't waste your money. Back to eyeko for me!
    This mascara is amazing, I like mascaras that lengthen and give a bit of volume, but I overall like the wispy look to my lashes - and this gives it. It's also completely crying proof, No smearing, no streaks, NOTHING.
