I received this as a GWP a looong time ago. I never even tried it until yesteday when I came across it again. This is one of the worst macaras I have ever tried. It clumps horribly and gives you those spidery looking lashes. It did make my lashes look a little longer but not thicker. You definitely need a comb with this one, but even then it's probably still going to look bad. The brush is awful too. I'll stick with my L'Oreal Voluminous for now...it isn't a holy grail, but it's the best I've found so far.

GWP. This mascara thickens A LOT. But, it's also prone to a lot of clumping. Still, if you have the patience to comb through your lashes, it's fine if you're looking for a volumnizing mascara.

GWP. EL should re-name MagnaScopic Maximum CLUMPING Mascara. Must use a comb afterward. If you want volume I suggest trying MAC fibre rich. Maybe loreal voluminous but that also requires a comb but it costs less.

i've almost given up finding a perfect mascara, but this comes quite close. i want the fake lash look [any suggestions anyone??] but this makes my lashes look blacker/thicker but still very natural.
not as clumpy as maybelline's lash discovery, but formula could be better.
good for daytime wear.

i really wanted to like this mascara when i first started using it. it did give me long, full lashes however it also was rather clumpy. it took a lot of work to get it to look good, which is a major downside. if i had 15 minutes to do my mascara routine i would love this. it's just not worth the hassle for the cost.

If you want thick long eye lashes this is the mascara for you.My lashes are long and thin but this makes them pop.Tried almost everything out there and this is definately a keeper.

I tried this mascara as a GWP several times before I decided to purchase a full size. It works really well and doesn`t come off until I take it off. I really notice a difference with this product. It is expensive at 23 but luckily I got a Xmas special gift set which came with a eyeliner and travel sized remover.

I have short, sparse lashes which--in theory--would benefit from a volumizing mascaras but they just don't work on me. MagnaScopic was no exception. It clumped up horribly if I applied more than a very light coat. They also make my short lashes stubby-looking. MagnaScopic seems like a very well-formulated mascara that might work better on long, thin lashes. I've found that lenghtening formulas work best for my lashes since they tend not to clump.
