I really liked this mascara. It is way better than Chanel cils a cils and MAC fiber lash. It gives me volume without clumps, I can build up several layers without spider effect. And it gives my lashes a natural curl. When I use it with Shiseido mascara base it creates a very dramatical effect for me. I'm saying "for me" because I understood that a mascara can have different effects on different people. It comes off quickly with my Lancome Bifacil, but when I use it with mascara base I work a little bit harder. What I do is cover my lashes with Dr. Hauschka Cleansing milk and wait for a minute(but be very careful because it burns my eyes like crazy) then I wash it away gently, after that I wipe the residue with Lancome Bifacil. And at last I condition my lashes with Talika Lipocils (which is a wonderful product). The effects worth that hard work :). My search will continue, becuase I like trying new things. (especially I'm waiting new mascaras of Chanel and Lancome) But I will keep buying this definitely.

I stumbled across this when I decided I needed to find a less expensive alternative to my beloved Lancome Definicils. It gave me the definition I loved and held curl better than definicils! I loved it so much and it was such a bargain, but now I can't find it anywhere! Target, CVS, and Ulta in my area have all stopped carrying it.

This is an good mascara, not great but good. It dries up in the tune very quickly and can go on a little choppy.

I've used this mascara for a few years now. I like it because it doesn't smear or smudge, though it does flake a fair amount throughout the day on the skin below my eyes. I like the black brown color. I'm still looking for that perfect mascara that doesn't flake or smear. Part of the problem is I have deep set eyes and I curl my eyelashes. So for now I'll continue to use this till I find something better. My eyes are sensitive to makeup and this mascara doesn't sting or cause irritation for me.

this was a good thickening mascara, it also lengthened, and didn't flake or smudge much. however, it did give my lashes a thin, spidery appearance. i bought this mascara in soft black, which turned out to be more of a blueish gray. yuck. this one isn't a keeper for me.

I have this in the waterproof version and really like it for a dramatic look. You have to be careful to only use 1 or 2 coats, otherwise you get clumps. I get tons of volume when using the wand that comes with this. For a more natural look I use the CG lash exact wand. A definite repurchase.

overall good mascara, rather thick formula though. Nevertheless, it performs, giving nice, fairly clumpless lashes, no smuding. My only complaints though are that it does flake a bit, and it has a strange, musty smell that kinda makes me gag...otherwise i would pick this up for a reliable, cheap mascara (get the straight brush, the curved one sucked)

I just bought this mascara today, along with the MF Stretch & Separate and Clear mascaras. I am Asian and was born with the curse of the single-eyelid. This means that on top of having no eyelashes to speak of, the few that would normally stick outward and upward on a double eyelided person instead are kind of pushed inward and droop downward. Not that you care to know, but basically, if anyone could really use a miracle mascara, it's me.Anyway, so the mascara itself is of a pretty good consistency, I would say. It doesn't really noticeably fatten my eyelashes, but I think it lengthens them a little bit. The mascara I used to use was DiorShow. Of course, compared to that mascara, nothing really volumizes. But, for a drugstore brand, which is what I'm limited to at the moment, I would say that this mascara does the job. I ran a test by applying half my face with mascara (and other makeup) and half without. This mascara is effective enough that you can definitely tell which side of my face is made up. Also, no clumps or flaking, which I had to deal with with the DiorShow. continued >>

What happened? I remember 2000 Calorie as being a very good thickening mascara. It has been years since I used this product, as I nearly always stick with L'Oreal and Maybelline. I saw this on sale and decided to try it again -- and what a disappointment! It does build up my lashes nicely, although there is a tendency to clump. I was simply amazed at how much this macara smears, even more so than Maybelline's Great Lash. What happened to the formula? I suppose the waterproof version should be used, but those formulations are awfully hard on the lashes, so I would prefer not to use a waterproof mascara daily. Attention, cosmetic chemists: don't mess with a good thing! Sometimes the original formulations are really the best!

This is one of my favorite products of all time, and that it can be bought so cheaply at my local drugstore/supermarket is icing on the cake! I hope Max Factor never changes the formula! Even the brush is great! My eyes are sensitive and I wear contacts; and for the several years that I've used it (and probably bought dozens of tubes in that time)it has never let me down. It doesn't smudge, run, or irritate, and stays on until I remove it (with Lancome Bifacil). A Holy Grail product. Thanks, Max!!
