I really love the original. It lasts me so long without drying out. Definitely a favorite, because it is hard for me to really find mascaras that I like. My lashes already have good length but I love the volume it gives. But an even better version of this mascara would be the curved brush voluminous.

This mascara is just so AVERAGE. I purchased it hoping it would be a dupe of my favorite (Clinique High Impact), and compared to that one, it's middling! It reminds me a lot of a former favorite (Clinique Naturally Glossy) in that it gives lashes some color and a little something extra...but that's about all it does. Voluminous also reminds me a lot of Maybelline Full n'Soft in that it doesn't make my lashes stiff...but I want stiffer lashes that look big and amped-up -- I don't wear eyeliner on an everyday basis, so I rely on oomph-ing mascara to do this for me. I like the price of this product, the bristly wand (hate the rubber spiky ones), and the simple packaging, but I probably wouldn't buy this again unless I was in a pinch and needed something drugstore-accessible. Back to Clinique I go!

When this mascara was invented, sometime around 1992, it was amazing and gave me the longest lashes of any mascara ever. Then they changed it a few years later and it stopped working. It became just ordinary at best. I've tried it off and on every so often when it was on sale, and am always disappointed. This was once the best mascara ever, but now it is not, so don't be surprised if it doesn't perform well for you.

I've heard so many people rave about how this mascara was their holy grail. It does build volume, but I can't get over the smudging. I can wear this for maybe an hour or two, but by the end of the day I look like a raccoon. I have the waterproof version too, so I don't understand why this is happening. I guess it's time to find another mascara.I would not purchase again.

Just so it's clear from the getgo for anyone who prefers wet or dry formula mascara this is extremely wet formula. Personally I prefer the overall look of a dry mascara but it takes forever to apply when I'm running late for work so it's nice to have a wet formula mascara for when you're in a rush. This mascara gives your lashes an extremely nice look, it's not as non-clumpy as my clump crusher (which has a drier formula, I love that mascara; it's nearly HG status) but the clumping isn't anything atrocious. I'd say average, you'll have the odd clump here and there to spoolie out once in a while. I suppose it's a bit too wet, though, due to the fact that I cannot put this on my lower lashes or I'll look like a racoon by the end of the day. I don't have watery eyes or allergies, so. Such a shame because it makes my lashes look amazing, super full, long, black. Never has this problem with any other mascara over 10 years so it's safe to conclude it's the mascara and not me. That is the deal breaker, if it didn't smudge like mad throughout the day I'd rate this a solid 4.5, almost HG status. Alas, this is not the case unfortunately.So in summary it's too wet, smudges insanely on the lower lashes and a bit on the clumpy side but not insanely so. I will use this up on my top lashes because, well, might as well but it is a hassle for sure and I will not be repurchasing due to this. I considered getting the waterproof version however the reviews for it are pretty bad so I won't bother.

Really wanted to love this mascara. It does add a great amount of volume to your lashes. BUT it was too heavy of a formula for my lashes. My lashes are long and grow straight down. I curl them to the max to open up my eyes because if not my eyes look extremely small. Every time i go and apply this mascara it weighs them down and i'm always stuck with beautiful, dark voluminous lashes pointing towards the ground. This mascara is very heavy and doesn't hold a curl. Yes, i can re-curl them but i lose a great amount of product doing that and have flakes of mascara on face as an end result.Loved this mascara but it's just not for me and my straight lashes.

I wanted to love this since I have heard such great things about it. It is a very wet formula which I am not a fan of..requires me to take extra time to be careful not to get it all over my face. Did not volumize my lashes. Will not repurchase. :-/

I have been searching for so long for a good mascara, so I was so happy to finally try this one! It is honestly the only mascara that works for me. It doesnít flake, keeps pretty good volume and is really easy to apply.Only reason I donít give it a perfect score is because whenever I take the wand out to put the mascara on, there is always a TON of product left hanging on the very end of the wand. I usually have to end up taking it off onto my hand or with a q-tip because otherwise it will go all over. If I attempt to put it back, it just makes the wand build up with globs of product the next time I go to use it, so thatís quite irritating but I am willing to deal with it since itís such a good formula!

I used this mascara for layering. I never used it on its own, I'm not a huge fan of its wet formula. I used it over the telescopic mascara. The two together looked great, but I don't want to spend time layering mascaras in the morning when I can achieve the same look with one different mascara. I probably wouldn't repurchase this again.

This mascara is amazing. I don't really have to go on and on about it. Don't waste your money on high end mascaras this is great! It's a classic for a reason. I have been using this since I was 16 and I will keep repurchasing forever.
