I was pleasantly surprised with this mascara. Although I can't coat my inner corner lashes too well because the wand is so big, it coats the others beautifully. I got this as part of the Lashstash from Sephora last Christmas and am getting around to opening this final mascara in the set and using it up. No clumps or lashes sticking together. I wouldn't purchase it again due to the price but since I got it in a value set I can't complain.

I like this for day-to-day use. It adds length and doesn't clump; it isn't overly dry or flakey. No spider eyes, no itching, no burning. A little harder to remove than some, but I don't mind. Doesn't add much volume and does nothing for curl (for me, at least), but adds nice length and gives a finished look without any problems. The brush is quite full so if that's not your preference, you may want to avoid. I didn't mind. Pricey but so are most mascaras. Would purchase this again but don't like it enough to stop trying others.

the brush is huge!!!

Formula is good, but honestly this brush is so big it is impossible to get it really close to the lash line without getting mascara all over your eyelids. and it was really expensive at $22.00 I rarely use it because of the giant brush...so for me, this is a fail.

I enjoy this product it gives good length. I wouldn't recommend for a fancy event but its a nice everyday type of wear. The brush embraces lashes very well. You will need a good curl with it though.

I really do like this product - good length, not too smudgy (after it dries - don't sneeze right after you put it on) - a great every day product. I would use something more dramatic for a night out or a formal evening, but for the office setting or daily use, it's perfect. My only complaint is that is a bit more expensive than I would like, but I'm pretty cheap, makeup is the only thing I splurge for and get name brands more often than drugstore brands, so take that how you will :)

This is a very good gluten-free mascara, and a good mascara in general. I can give my sparse, short lashes the illusion of length and thickness with a few swipes of this little gem, and the plush brush certainly helps that. However, it also contributes to clumping, which you can get if you're not quick with the wand (run it through quickly and repeatedly) or a lash comb. At the end of the day I can have a flake or two and maybe a tad under the outer corners of my eyes, but it's really not an issue. The formula is not too wet or dry, and it doesn't take the curl out of my lashes. I wish I could say "I don't know" if I'll rebuy. I'm new to the gluten-free world and the few mascaras advertised as gluten-free I've tried so far have not met my needs. If I don't find a better one, I will rebuy; if I do, no. And I wish it came in brown, although the black color is dark and pure.

Seems to be a lot of mixed reviews on this mascara. I think the mascara formula is great, but the wand is pretty massive.

I have naturally very long lashes and the formula works really well for me. A few swipes, and my long lashes look fantastic. The first time I wore it, my friend commented on how great my lashes looked. (previously had been using clump crusher or they're real)

The wand is really big though. It isn't a big deal, but I have to be quite a bit more careful when applying, or I end up with mascara all over the place.

It's not a real dark black (at least in comparison to others I have tried) but I actually prefer this, especially for work and daytime looks. The overall finish is quite natural looking. For a night out, I would likely grab "they're real" for a more dramatic look.

I use the non-waterproof version. I haven't had any issues with smudging or flaking. I hit the gym after work, and typically sweat my butt off when I do cardio - never an issue with it rubbing off under my eyes. It washes right off with my nighttime facial cleanser. The brush is a little large, but I like that it isn't plastic.

I don't think it layers very well. So if you are used to putting a lot of coats on for your desired effect, this mascara might be a pass for you.

The price is a con. I hate paying so much for mascara.

This is honestly one of the worst mascaras I have ever used but luckily, I only tried a sample-sized tube. First of all, the brush (which is a real brush, not plastic) is unnecessarily huge, which makes it difficult to apply product to the lashes closest to your nose. Second, it's a drier formula and not very black at all. You need a few coats to make it look like you're even wearing mascara. Volume is virtually non-existent but it does add a bit of length. My lashes are on the shorter, thinner side and I like really dramatic-looking lashes, and this did nothing for me. I would never repurchase a full-sized tube. I suppose it's an okay mascara for an everyday, understated look but that's not what I'm going for.

I will try to use it up by wearing it to work.

This was a pretty okay mascara. Although it didn't provide a very dramatic effect length wise or curl wise, it was good for everyday. For some people it may seem too dark and thickening for everyday but I thought it was okay. It was quite expensive when it wasn't even that amazing. The only main positive is getting it off. It comes off really easily and your lashes feel conditioned after. Overall, it was okay, nothing amazing but I probably wouldn't buy it again for the price.

After hearing good reviews on this I was keen but iWas really disappointed with this for the price of 19 i have long lashes anyway however this didn't have much of an impact I recon a normal drugstore mascara for 8 would have done a better job.
It also dries up very quick
