I think the formula, consistency, etc. was fine.
It just made my eyes burn. This is not uncommon for me so don't be scared away by that. Obviously, I personally wouldn't buy it again but I know people who use this with great success.
I love this color, but that's about it. It's super dark. The brush is no good. It clumps and I always seem to have smudges. but that's to be expected from something so inexpensive.
Truth time... This is a good mascara that has survived the test of time and is the number 1# selling mascara for a good reason - not because it is the best mascara ever - but because it is decent mascara for a good price.
My mother, my best friend, my aunts, and I all use it without any flaking or smudging, so I'm left wondering what went wrong for most of the people that reviewed this mascara.
Not my favorite but not band.
Yeah, you guessed it. I hate this, A LOT. It's awful. I have nightmares about it, it's that bad. It's clumpy, smeary, smudgey, flakey, and generally unattractive. This used to be the "bomb" in middle school, and I think when they launched the "super sexy" blackest black in high school I grabbed a tube, but man, the memories from this are bad enough that I remember them even now. My tube in high school broke after it feel three feet on the floor, so it gets bad marks in packaging. The color is great, but that's the only thing it's got going for it. The brush is smaller than what I am used to, and the formula it wet and nasty. Expect raccoon eyes, and make sure you carry some Visine with you when you where this, as there will be flakes of mascara in your eye!
love this product. really, really good everyday great lashes product! i dont see why some people think its so bad. its great for the price and to me its like diorshow mascara.
What kind of bribes does Maybelline offer magazines and makeup artists who recommend this crappy product over and over? This mascara is awful...unless you want to look like Liza Minelli in Cabaret w/four lashes on each eye!
So after years of hearing all the hype about how this is the best mascara and getting tired of spending $19 on Bobbi Brown, I bought this. Whoop de doo. It looks good when it goes on, but it doesn't stay put. I haven't had mascara migrate this bad since high school when I wore, well, Maybelline. Can't wait to throw this out. I may try the waterproof version and see if it stays in place better. Except for the migration issue, I would like it fine.
i really don't understand why people in here don't like this mascara! i think it's really nice, better than most drugstore brands i've ever tried. it makes my lashes long, think, and curly! i don't blame magazine reviews for calling it the #1 mascara!
I have been using this mascara all these years because I didn't know any better. But now I hate it and will never buy it again. It never comes off properly and I have pulled out many eyelashes trying to get it off. It clumps as well. In time, what's left of the pretty packaging is a dull plastic tube of pink.
I will never again buy mascara made by corporate tycoon cosmetic companies who make quick bucks on selling crap!
I love this mascara. It's my mascara on the go when i just need a few quick coats. I don't like how small the brush is, but it's not a big deal since I don't use it on an everyday basis. This is something every mascara addict should try at least once!
