I was in Sephora a little bit ago and bought a sample of this for ten bucks.I'm not impressed. Gurus rant about this all the time but it does not work. It clumped like crazy and the tip puts too much on then it's impossible to clean up the gunk. It's def not my hg.. I'll go back to layering my drugstore ones for sure. I feel like it did nothing outstanding enough to justify the price. this is just outrageously over rated.Edit: ok so I had to change my rating only because as it dried out a bit I liked it more. At the Estee Lauder counter yesterday I actually got complimented by a few workers and passerby about my eyes... this opened them up and made me look awake. When I told them what the mascara was they said they were going to run out and buy it.. I was surprised though because I HATED this when I bought the $10 mini sized. I wouldn't call it my hg just yet... it still flakes a bit... but I guess no one mascara is super perfect.. and I can't justify a full sized price... YIKES!! But I did get a full size in a sephora favorites bag just last week and I only paid $38 for it(came with a LOT of stuff) So I guess if I can get it like that I will be ok.

I've tried this everyday for 3 weeks during the day and fresh applications for going out as in I'm not layering on top of the morning application. The ball tip of the brush puts way too much product on the shorter lashes, it clumps worse than a cheaper brand I've used in the past. I have quite long lashes but they are "straight". this stuff smudges easily on the lid when applying to the roots of the lashes and seems to undo the work of my curler making my lashes just look forward and spikey. It also takes forever to get it off and it isn't even waterproof!! I've tried so many brands of mascara over the years but with False Lash Effect by Max Factor I've gotten the best results for my type of eyelashes - long and straight.It's too expensive and not worth the money. I really wish I had a sample of this before I bought it

I received this mascara as a sample and I hated it. The brush is oddly shaped and painfully pokes your lids as you use it. Also, I found that it clumped easily and neither lengthened nor volumized my lashes. I threw it away. Don't waste your money.

I have received over 3 deluxe samples of this mascara from many beauty bags, and I really really really wanted to love this. After giving this mascara many chances, I have to say this is not the one for me. There are definitely pros and cons to this, and while there are many raves about this mascara, heck its even part of the Sephora birthday gift..... I still don't like it enough. First, I have... difficult lashes. Actually difficult wouldn't even begin to describe how uncooperative my lashes have been in the past. When I first started using this mascara, I was in love. It did everything I was looking for! A great formula to really lengthen my lashes, give it volume and just make my eyes look all the more attractive. It does last all day, and this great formula (and the brush applicator thing) is why this product is so popular. However, I started to encounter a few big flaw with this mascara. This mascara does lengthen and give lashes that "false eyelashes" look that we always see in Hollywood glamour.... but when I use this, I notice my eye lashes just continue to clump, creating the "spider web" lashes (does this make sense?)! I know that is something some people like, but not for me. I like my lashes more fuller, with little to no clumping. The second turn off for me was how difficult it is to remove this mascara! To clarify, this product is by no means waterproof! When in a humid, or wet environment this smudges like crazy, you'll have raccoon eyes in no time! What I mean is that it's hard to remove the clumps at the end of the day. I have used a total of 3 different eye make up removers (Neutrogena, Elizabeth Arden & Clinique), it still took a decent amount of time to remove this product from my eyelashes. Comparing this to Maybeline's The Rocket Mascara, the alternative is better (in my opinion). It's cheaper (9$), creates full lashes just like Benefit's They're Real and they are almost clump free! To make things better, it's also easier to remove. I still have two new deluxe sized samples of this mascara, and it is something I don't mind having in my stash... however I can promise that I will not be purchasing the full size.

Well, I think I just found a HG mascara- this stuff is AMAZING! The brush is awesome, it gets every little lash, and it separates them beautifully. And it gives you BIG HUGE Barbie lashes! I love it - I just wish it was waterproof, but so far, no smudging. I'm really, really happy with this!

I originally got a sample of this product and after using it once went and bought the actual product, I love it! Now I love the long, false eyelashes look and so have used hundreds of mascaras trying to achieve this and non have worked as well as this one. It makes my lashes look incredibly long and really does give a false lash effect, it can go a bit clumpy but I just use a tool to part my eyelashes afterwards. I can understand why some people don't like it because it does give you massive eyelashes and so if you like a more natural look then it's not for you but personally, I love it!

I love this mascara! It give you great volume as well as a thick black colour just like fake lashes do, I wear it whenever I go out in the evening and sometimes in the day but it does feel heavy so I tent to leave it for the evening. This mascara has two down sides, one it is really hard to get off, although if you get it wet it will run and two it sometimes clots on your eyes goes quite clumpy, but over all a good product and saves all the hassle of putting on fake lashes! I would recommend this product highly and will be buying it again!

I have a serious love-hate relationship with this mascara. I still kick myself for spending $22 on a mascara that I hardly reach for, but I try my best to work with it. Sometimes it adds just the right amount of volume and length, and other times I feel like my lashes look clumpy. The worse part is taking it off. I swear I use an eye makeup remover and then makeup remover wipes to get the mascara off, and sometimes even after I wash my face with my cleanser that is know for removing makeup very well, I still have remnants of the mascara around my eyes. I'm starting to get more into Benefit Cosmetics, as it is quickly turning into one of my favorite high-end brands, but I can't get with this mascara. It costs too much to sometimes be nice and other times be unflattering. This was my first time trying a pricey mascara, but because of the inconsistencies, I'll be sticking to my favorite drugstore brands.

Great lengthening however not very voluminous. Good staying power, did not flake. Love the brush with the rounded end, great for defining the lashes. Very black but not as black as others I've used. Looked better when I used my Dior lash primer but really looking for that one HG mascara that volumizes and lengthens, this is not it!

I didn't like this for the simple fact that it smudged and didn't add appreciable volume. I prefer Lancome Hypnose drama and Loreal Voluminous original.
