Rated 5 out of 5 by 1blackdog The new basic!
OK You've got it right again - don't drop this mascara from the line up.
I used the old basic and loved it. Then it was changed and disappointed. I did try Stretch Extreme and that is good,but better for night looks.
I tried this new version based on reviews - it is an excellent natural looking mascara which does not smear. That is what I want in my daily look - something I can even exercise in and not worry about raccoon eyes, which -believe me - are not flattering over 65. And something which lets my eyelashes simply look better, even in sunlight.

Very pleased with this new mascara. To those of you who don't know about the discontinued Basic mascara by Shu.... it was the best. This new "Petal Lash Mascara" reminds me of the old Basic. Holds a curl like none other, lengthens, feels light, and no clumps. Awesome brush. MUUUUUUUch better that the replacement they introduced for Basic few years ago. Thanks Shu.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rxnutty This mascara is phenomenal...
As a connissuer of mascaras, I have to say that this new Petal brush mascara rocks. It goes on super well and allows you to build your lashes. Gives a great effect. It is hard to get off with just soap and water; definitely need to use makeup remover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by volcomized Dare I say, better than the Basic?
Have been using this new mascara for a few weeks now and am loving it. It holds a curl like nobody's business! It also lengthens the best of all of Shu's mascaras (I've tried them all). It's not waterproof, so the curl will deflate upon touching water, but it is heat-/sweat-proof (tested in SoCal's summer weather).
My only "but" is the wand. It has a unique curve shape to it that ends up grabbing too much formula in the sunken middle section when you pull out the wand. It then ends up clumping/gloping in that specific area. There's a technique/finesse to applying this mascara that takes a second longer, and I always have a Q-tip handy in case of excess formula. However, the best Shu mascara since the Basic...and, dare I say, even better if not for the wand issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natasha0228 Love this mascara!!
Waterproof & smudgeproof is an under statement. This mascara borders on being too hard to remove...even with oil cleanser. BUT it is FANTASTIC! Doesn't clump or smudge. Lifts, curls, and lengthens. Love the fact that I can put on multiple coats and I don't look like I have spider legs on my eyes. I'm a contact wearer with sensitive eyes and I have had zero problems with this mascara. I love Shu and this is another awesome product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anita Not Back to Basic
Based on the reviews, I decided to try this mascara. I was and still am a big fan of the Basic Mascara that was discontinued. This mascara is not like or near the Basic. The mascara goes on thick and my lashes clumped together. The thing I loved about the Basic Mascara is that it went on thin and separated my lashes, along with lengthening them. If I wanted thicker lashes for the evening, I'd layer on another mascara. I won't be buying this again. Disappointed. :(

The weird skimpy brush doesn't work. Applies on one side only. I'm really going to give up on this line. I loved their original Mascara & each one since has been worse.
