- Separates lashes
- No clumping
- Minimal smudging and transfer
- Very flaky formula
- Huge, pokey wand (can be messy to apply)
- Have to really layer for intense black pigment
- Didn’t hold curl
- No length or curl
I can’t say I’m impressed by Grande FANATIC Mascara. It didn’t provide me as much length and lift as I was expecting. The wand and formula are a bit tricky to work with. But, I’m glad it was smudge and clump free.

Grande FANATIC Mascara combines a mascara and lash serum in one.
I’ve got to say, this sounds pretty cool. I love the idea of a mascara that also helps boost my lashes, strengthening them with each wear. Grande Cosmetics is known for their Grande LASH Serum that help lashes grow longer and stronger over time, so I’m sure the serum aspect of this product is amazing. I’m a bit skeptical on how the mascara will perform. Grande Cosmetics claims long and lifted lashes with a smudge and flake free wear. Let’s see how good this mascara and serum duo works on the daily.

Promises vs. Performance: Grande FANATIC Mascara has short term and long term benefits.
After 28 days of continuous wear, Grande FANATIC Mascara promises long term benefits for lashes include healthier, stronger, and fuller looking lashes. This is powered by their exclusive Widelash technology, a biotin peptide that helps anchor the lashes naturally lost each day while nourishing and strengthening. It keeps working even after you take your mascara off. But, there are short term benefits, too. FANATIC Mascara is a fanning and curling mascara meant to lift and lengthen lashes. The formula promises to wear free of smudging, clumping, or flaking. The special brush, Fan-tastic Grab N’ Lift is molded in a way to reach each individual lash.
I didn’t test out this product as a lash serum for a continuous 28 days to see the benefits, but I did test it out as a mascara. Right off the bat, I hate the wand. It is massive and hard to reach every lash as it claimed to do. I feel like it didn’t hold much product, which in turn made very little product deposit on my lashes. As I built it up, it wasn’t clumping as bad as I expected it to since it is a drier formula. It did length my lashes as claimed, but the lift was on the flatter side (though, my lashes don’t hold much curl to begin with). I did have a good bit of flaking and found mascara flakes all over my face throughout the day. Thankfully, it did hold up in terms of having minimal smudging and transfer.
How Grande FANATIC Mascara Compares: There’s better mascaras.
Personally, I like changing up my mascara so I wouldn’t reach for this one for it’s lash boosting benefits and I didn’t test that claim out. I’d rather be able to change up my mascara and use a lash serum at night with my skincare. But, as a mascara: I wasn’t that impressed. The wand is massive and hard to apply. It barely holds any product and you really have to layer the product to get the intense black pigment. My lashes did look lengthened, but it didn’t aid in holding a curl. I will say, it did live up to the no smudging and clumping claims, but it flaked a decent bit throughout the day.
Have you used this mascara for its lash boosting benefits and seen results?
Meet my holy grail mascara.
A mascara that lengthens, volumizes, defines, and helps hold a curl for my finicky lashes is Lancome Lash Idole. This mascara does it all and gives me the false lash effect I love. While it doesn’t have any lash boosting benefits, I find it doesn’t hurt my lashes and is easy to remove without tugging and pulling. The way Lash Idole wears makes me repurchase it over and over and outweighs the extra benefits of Grande FANATIC.
