This mascara is okay. I like really natural makeup looks, and this mascara clumped up my clashes pretty bad. The wand comes out with globs of mascara stuck to it, even on level one, and it is the only mascara I have at the moment. It's quite easy to use, though, and the color is great, but I do notice that I have smudges under my eyes at the end of the day (not really bad, but noticeable) and that it is a little hard to get off. I would recommend this for more dramatic mascara looks, or if you needed a thicker mascara for spidery lashes, not if you like natural yet defined lashes.

I too found this at a dollar store ( should be a red flag no?)

I liked the idea of being able to have a subtle day mascara ( level 1) or a dramatic one ( level 3) or anywhere in between all in one tube, but twisting the tube up has only one real effect, giving you clumps galore.

Even at level 1 the brush is overloaded with mascara and it smudged within hours. Added more volume than length. Would not recommend, there are much better mascaras even almay mascaras out there

Rich black color
didn't irritate contacts

overloaded brush
no real "dial up" effect

this mascara is very gimmicky. i like 1 for my bottom lashes and i like 3 for my top lashes. it doesnt allow you to get the inner corners but it gets the outer corners beautifully. it is definatley not worth its usual price at 8-10 dollars but i got it at a dollar general, so it is worth that 1 dollar. you also get a lot less product than normal mascaras. overall, its a great everyday, for school mascara. would only repurchase if i found it there again. which i still have so check your dollar stores ladies!

Ugh. My friends got me this for my birthday, and at first, I thought "hey! There's a dial-up button!" But really, it's just a gimmick. I really like the button, but the packaging.......it's way too bulgy. As for the formula, it is horrible. Whenever I put it on, it smudges a little, which drives me INSANE.
Whenever I put it on, I have to check every half an hour to make sure it didn't smudge on my lower lash line. Will NEVER purchase this.
It's useful if it's the ONLY thing in your purse or whatever. But overall,
it's just horrible,

This is good for a basic mascara, nothing special. I always use it on level 1, since I don't want anything too dramatic. I haven't had any issues at all with clumping or anything like that. I am positive there are way better mascaras out there but this one is "just okay" and could work in a pinch!

I also found this in the Dollar Tree. If this wasn't so hard to wash off, I'd buy it again. I love the really black color of the product. If you use more than one coat it will clump, so just wipe the brush before using and comb out the clumps. If it had a "real brush" I doubt there would be so much wet clumping. The dial is useless and packaging bulky and not travel friendly.

Gorgeous super black color
Lashes seem to hold a curl

Fat/bulky tube
worthless dial
awful plastic "brush" (give me a real brush!!!)
hard to remove from lashes

This is easily the worst mascara I've ever tried. It's too wet and goes on really clumpy and smudgy. The brush is the plastic bristle type but with really short bristles that do absolutely nothing. Like previous reviewers have mentioned, the dial-up feature is just a gimmick. I bought it at my local Dollar Tree store and I'm sorry I wasted even a dollar on this.

I love this, I bought it a while ago at Bealls because it was like $4 and I knew it was much more at Walmart and other drugstores.. I didn't know it would become my favorite mascara! I love it, and am almost out. Today I found it at my dollar store and I was so happy, of course I picked it up. It looks so natural, I've used it completely with NO clumps ever, never had a problem of flaking or anything else. I use blackest black, but they also have a black brown color. For everday (I love dramatic eyelashes with neutral makeup) I use it on the 3rd setting of the dial, and it looks great (: no matter how many mascaras I buy, I always come back to this one!

I have walked by this mascara in several drug stores for some time now, epsecially with it being priced at about $10 and was amazed to find this in my local Dollar Tree for $1! I figured that at $1 it's worth a try.

I prefer to use this on #2 and in Blackest Black. I usually use MAC's Prep and Prime Lash with a majority of mascaras to try to boost the product but I find that even without it Dial Up is a great product. Great pigmentation. My only complaint is the packaging because it's so bulky.
