I've been looking for a good glitter mascara for some time now, and I've yet to be impressed by anything.
The colour in the tube is gorgeous; black glitter with silver glitter in a clear base. But it stopped amazing me there.
This stuff doesn't do much as a mascara -no lengthening or volume, and very little darkening- on it's own; it just adds a bit of glitter factor. Very subtle, so if you're looking for a way to make an outfit a bit more playful without making a big change, this is the product for you.
If you put on a black mascara of your choice under it, you get different problems. If you try to put on this glitter mascara over it before it dries, the colors meld and you hide the glitter. If you put on the glitter mascara after the base dries, you have a hard time getting it to no clump; you might be able to get over this problem with a thin mascara that mostly colours for an undercoat, but i personally don't like them.
The other problem I got was that the glitter is a bit too chunky, so if you put multiple layers on, you get a chunky-clumpy look on your lashes.
what I've found works best for a dramatic glitter lash look is actually another product from Hard Candy, the Walk the Line eyeliners. First you put on your favorite basic mascara, and let it dry. Then take the eyeliner in whatever colour you want -there is a big selection of all sorts of colours, but Lace is the glitter silver, and Dream Girl is the glitter gold- and run the brush on your lashes.
I ended up giving this to one of my friends who rarely wears lots of makeup, and is very happy with the super subtle look of it.

Mascara with glitter is just about the best idea I can think of. It combines 2 of my favorite things. That's why I was SO excited when I saw this at Walmart.
As soon as I got home I had to give it a try. As soon as I pulled out the brush I knew it wasn't going to be good. The mascara was literally liquid. It actually splashed into my sink when I took the wand out of the tube. It was so thin I didn't even try it on. I don't know if I just got a bad one or not but this experience was enough to keep me from giving this a second try.

I have used both colors of this, and I loved the gold glitter. It was very thick and visible when I put it on, and although it was a bit clumpy, it was awesome looking when it was on. I would have given it by itself a 5 star rating.
I did not have such good luck with the black glitter. It was barely visible on my lashes, and something about it really bothered my eyes. I would guess falling glitter, but I am not certain. I still use it, but for things like glittering my eyebrows. It shows up well there without irritating my eyes.
Bottom line, if you are considering lash tinsel, stick with the gold. The black needs to be thickened up and made more like a conventional mascara.

So I agree with the other reviews about it not being a stand alone product. I actually really like using the black with silver sparkles mascara from covergirl from the Eyelights collection. So I saw this in spellbound (black) and was thinking it would be a great top coat for that because it looked like I would be making something a already shimmery a bit more dramatic. The lash tinsel is just like the name. its the tinsel on your tree. It worked really well for me because i was just putting bigger sparkles on my eyelashes. My first mascara is pretty thin. But if you put too much your lashes might clump. I didnt get any wierd chunks, just my lashes stuck together a little bit. The end result was very pretty with a smokey eye. I would recommend this for going out.
Rated 2 out of 5 by tashadoll I purchased this last night. It was not on sale like it is on the website. I paid $6 for this bottle of junk.
If you're thinking this is actual mascara, you're wrong. All it is is a bottle of glittery goo without an actual mascara wand. It's just a stick that collects glitter for you to rub on your lashes. I could have easily created that out of other products I already own.
Definately no value for your money here.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mstp Beautiful Glittering Eye top coat
I love this mascara. It is great to add to very tips of my lashes or sometimes i comb it through my hair to add a glitter when going out in the evening. the comb is perfect for adding a light top coat over my lashes. Great product for a over the top night club look.
Rated 1 out of 5 by throughxherxeyes Big Disappointment
I bought a tube of this for my prom night thinking it'd be a fun addition. It looked so pretty and glittery! Looks really can be deceiving though. It clumps like crazy, is very thick and doesn't distribute evenly. I've made some bad investments in makeup but this was one of the worst! It's really a shame. I've tried other products made by Hard Candy and they have been great but this stuff was just an epic fail.
