I don't understand all the poor ratings. I decided to replace the L'oreal I'd been using because they are NOT cruelty-free. I did take off one lippie because this is supposed to be a super-volumizing formula and it just isn't. However, it applied well in one coat without using an eyelash curler and doesn't feel "crunchy". If anything, my lashes feel soft. No flaking either. I have sensitive eyes and I'm not noticing any irritation. Basically it gives my lashes a nice, natural look. I will be looking for something else for my dramatic eye looks, but this is a keeper for a natural eye.
This product has a lot of negative reviews, but I had such a good experience that I wonder if it's a quality control issue.
I usually buy Cover Girl mascara, but was away from home without it. I didn't want to spend the $9 or so for CG, so I got this one. It's great, actually. It lengthens, thickens, and colors my lashes really dark black. I don't think it stays on as well as CG (i.e., forever), which is why I'm not switching permanently. But it's pretty good! Especially for the price.
I would definitely purchase again because I believe in switching out mascara tubes frequently for sanitary purposes.
Quite possibly the worst mascara I have ever used. I understood when I bought it not to expect to much, but I did expect something. There is nothing Mega or Plump about this product. Little girl toy makeup kits probably have better mascara. I could have done better with a Sharpie marker !
O.K., my H.G. Mascara is Lancome Definicils Waterproof but it WAS Cover Girl Marathon Mascara (waterproof) before they quit making it so I'm not giving Wet 'n Wild Mega Plump Mascara a negative review because I'm a Mascara snob, I'm giving it a negative review because this is possibley the WORST performing mascara that I have EVER tried!
I like a truly bulletproof waterproof mascara and loved Marathon Mascara by Cover Girl (in the same price range) until it was discontinued. I LOVE Wet 'n Wild nail polishes, they ARE utterly bulletproof. So, when I saw Mega Plump Waterproof Mascara on sale (BOGO, no less), I grabbed up two tubes of this with no reservations. I mean, at 2 for $5.99, I didn't have much to lose.
Well, I lost $5.99, plus tax. because, I could NOT get this mascara to go ON my eyelashes. I tried application after application and it does practically NOTHING. It doesn't seem to flake off, it just never goes ON! I tried working on application for a good 15 minutes (because I am determined) and nothing happened. My eyelashes got a LITTLE darker (ON VERY BLACK, no less) and looked a little spidery. Not at ALL plump.
I checked the tube and wand. The product was not dry. It just did nothing.
So I grabbed my Lancome Hypnose waterproof in brown out of my cabinet, applied about two coats and had instant thick long visible lashes....opened Wet 'n Wild tube to trash, unopened one I'll put up for swap. If this works for someone, great...you can have it.
Oh, a post script, I really did NOT just try this once. I don't give up that easily. I tried three or four times before actually just plain giving up and throwing it away.
Yikes! Those Spikes! No plumping at all. Zero volume. Tossed this immediately.
Worst mascara ever. It didn't even stay on my eyelashes, it flaked off, and just was a waste of time and money. It clumped, flaked and didn't even lengthen or 'plump' my eyelashes. Hell, it barely even turned them black (I bought the 'blackest black' color). And the price, $9! I wouldn't even pay 1 penny for that terrible mascara. Defenatly not recommended.
I don't understand all of the negative reviews for this mascara. I have tried tons of mascaras- Lancome Hypnose Drama, Benefit They're Real, Bobbi Brown Extreme, Clinique, Jordana, L'oreal, most all Covergirl and maybelline, etc.... and this works best for me!
It lengthens my lashes quick. I don't have time to curl my lashes or put on a lot of coats, and this lengthens fast- in one or two coats. It doesn't clump and stays on all day! Hands down my favorite mascara!
The first few times I used this I wasn't sure about it... it seemed to be somewhat volumizing and lengthening but it was very spidery and not natural looking at all. In fact, the spider lashes looked like they had ants on the end of them. I've been trying to use it for a few weeks now and OMG... it flakes all over my cheeks during the day... comes off it bits. But just try washing it off (waterproof formula)... raccoon eye city. Difficult to remove entirely, but super flaky! If you want to look like Tammy Faye Bakker... use this! If not, AVOID!
Second angry wet n wild review...herre we go
So after my encounter with megalength, I moved on to megaplump. The packaging is cute, and again I love the wand! After one coat..there was honestly nothing o my lashes. It was like Josie maran GOgo mascara but cheaper:just tinted darker my lashes. When I layered it, it looked like little ants were climbing up my lashes; black lumps just sticking to my lashes, gave this plastic feel. Again, I braved the outdoors and saw it did last all day with no flaking/smudging. Why is it all the wet n wild mascaras I try have such horrible performance but amazing staying power? Nevertheless this is joining it's cousin megalength in the garbage
This is a great mascara, just not for plumping as it's marketed. It did nothing much to plump my lashes, it actually lengthend them quite well though. I added lots of coats and there was no clumping. A solid everyday mascara that adds length
