Awful mascara, made my lashes look spidery! After 2 days of using I now have extremely painful lids which are infected and swollen. This was the only new item I had used. I dont normally have reactions to any make up. I have read on blogs that girls were saying their lashes fell out after using it ! Dont buy this.
Im no mascara geek but cover girl lash blast / max factor masterpiece and benefit bad gal are truly amazing try them! xx

Got this at Duane Reade. This mascara is supposed to grow your lashes within 30 days. I have only used this for 3 days and already am having a problem, it goes on slightly clumpy, the clumps are tiny but there. Also I keep having to pick little black specks off of my skin and in my eye throughout the day, which is very annoying and never had this problem with any mascara.The only good thing I can say is that it does not in any way irritate or burn my eyes.
I would love to give this a chance to see if it does grow my lashes but these specks that keep falling off is ruinig my makeup. I won't buy this again, I will just stick to plain mascara with no promises of growing lashes. ugh.

I am really loving this lengthening mascara. I have short asian lashes and normally go for volume mascara, but have realized I would prefer length over volume if I had to choose one. I love this spherical brush. Applies evenly and smoothly. After about 2-3 coats, I start to get some volume as well. I can't say too much regarding the actual "lash growth" effect the formula is supposed to have. I presume if anything, it is very minimal improvement. However, to be fair I never expect those type of stellar results from a DS product like this. If I expected growth, I would just buckle down and get Latisse.
All in all, I am really loving this mascara. No clumps, no raccoon eyes, no smudging. Comes off easily with makeup remover.

I have long black lashes but they were very sparse because I kept losing lashes when taking off my eye makeup. I decided to try this mascara once I read that it'll help with length AND fullness. For the first week, you will NOT see any results. My lashes looked like they barely had any mascara on them, even though I would layer this stuff on. It didn't give me a dramatic "look at me" lash look. The brush is nice when it comes to definition. I barely get any clumps with this mascara. I am now on the third week and I see some dramatic results. Not only have I not lost a single lash since I started using this, my upper AND lower lashes are super super long!! So don't be mislead, this mascara not only lengthens, it also strengths your lashes from lash loss and helps make them fuller. Now that my lashes are multiplied and longer, I definitely get that dramatic eye lash look that I've been yearning for!

I have this in the Blackest shade and I must say, the instant results are fantastic!! I haven't experienced any long term lash growth but when I apply it to my lashes, the tips of them touch my browbone! This mascara makes my lashes look lush, thick, long and healthy. It's definitely for those who love a dramatic lash...for days when I want something with less oomph, I still turn to my Maybelline Full n' Soft..but for when I'm feening for some fierce, dramatic lashes, I turn to my Rimmel Lash Accelerator in a millisecond! Highly recommended! The Castor Oil in it is fabulous for strengthening the lashes...and over time, will promote growth..who knows! Maybe after a few more months of using this, I will see the long term growth the product promises! We'll see... until then, I'll gladly keep using this mascara for the glorious, instant results...

I have been using this product for about 3 weeks now and I have been seeing better eyelashes. Before using this product you could barely see my eyelashes even with mascara on, I was using toofaced's Lash Injection, my eyelashes and wallet is glad for the change. My eyelashes seem only a little more full but you can really see the difference in length since I started to use this mascara. I think the best thing about this product is now you can actually see I have bottom lashes over my eyeliner, because before it looked like didnít have bottom eyelashes. I think my only two complaints are that one the formal is very wet, the drying time is about 3 minutes so try not to do any hard blinking. 2 It still is a bit pricey over ten dollars, but I think it is so worth the money.

i love this mascara! i've been using it with l'oreal lash boosting serum. i use the lash boosting serum at night and the lash accelerator in the morning. it's a great mascara for every day it gives a great natural look, goes on smooth and doesn't clump. i've noticed a difference in length and i have more lashes after a month of using both products.

I really, really like this mascara. Granted it's not PERFECT but it's quite close to it. I haven't noticed a dramatic change in the length of my lashes but they do seem a little bit longer than they used to (I've been using it for about a month). The mascara itself goes on easily and is good at lengthening and volumizing. The trick is to not put on too much because that's when it gets a bit clumpy. Other than that, though, I'd say it's one of the best mascaras I've ever tried... and I've tried a lot of different mascaras. Rimmel remains my favorite brand for mascara.

First the good news - goes on well, doesn't smudge, looks nice and clean. It only lengthens for me really nice, nothing dramatic or anything no volume. But, very very nice for daytime. The bad news - by the end of the day it is melting and when it hits my eye it is PAINFUL. It is very lightweight so I actually forgot that I had it on and my eyes get itchy for some strange reason. I am a contact wearer but this mascara tends to irritate me more. It gets so itchy and burns I looked in the mirror and realized I had raccoon eyes. Now may I remind you I was out in public and I had to wash my eyes in a public bathroom. I am literally running to the restroom to wipe the makeup off of my eyes. God forbid I should tear up for any reason this actually makes me tear up without doing anything at all and gave me red and stinging eyes. I wore it a few times before this and ended up with itchy raccoon eyes and I continued to give it a chance but after that I was finished. After all of this my neighbor commented me on how much my lashes have grown and I was thinking if you only new what I had to go thru.

Edit this is a shame that this irritated me so much and is not waterproof and messy because after application I love the effect :(

i really didn't like this mascara, i got this on offer at boots for about £3-£4 so i wasn't like i wasted lots of money
i thought the brush didn't coat the lashes well and there was no volume provided unless i put on about four coats.
i found the packaging quality was really poor because all the text on the tube had rubbed of within about two weeks
i'm not sure if this accelerated my lashes because i only used it for two weeks but overall i didn't enjoy using this mascara
