I've really enjoyed this mascara.
The curve on the wand is helpful capturing all my lashes. The bristles have a good depth and i feel like they get right down to the root of the lashes. Also the brush is thin enough to reach right in to the inner corner lashes.
I've found the formula is great for lengthening and adding a moderate amount of volume. Overall I've been really happy with it, however I am a mascara hussie and can't stay faithful - always looking for something slightly better.

I actually use two mascara's in the morning and I apply this one second, it helps to bring more depth into my lashes and covers more lashes at a time.

I've just bought this mascara and i'm yet to see how it wears for a whole day in this hot weather but atm i love it! I have naturally curled lashes but this mascara makes them hold the curl amazingly and holds them up really well. My lashes aren't even that long but with 3 coats they look pretty long and best of all they make them look thick which is what i look for! Thick but not clumpy. At least for me anyway. So glad I found this, so much cheaper than benefit's they're real so much more affordable. If it helps i'm using the cat eyes mascara but it comes in a different new tube so maybe different formulas! But yup in love for now x

I have had this product for a month or two now and it is one of the worst i have tried. I mean the curved brush is nice and that's about it. My lashes stick and look like spider legs.

I love this mascara because of the wand which distributes even coats of mascara and separates and lengthens my lashes without it clumping. The downside is it FLAKES. Within a couple of hours I looked at the mirror and was shocked to see smudges and flakes on mascara under my eyes! I went a whole day looking like a damn raccoon and I didn't even rub my eyes. Hopefully they have a waterproof formula.

I'm Asian and I have very thin and flat lashes, I've tried many drug store mascara and luxury mascara and only two that works like heaven!
This is the only drugstore mascara that actually says what it advertises as. It's give lots of volume and leaving the tip of your lashing pointy and long. The waterproof version is sooooo good! It really hold the curl, gives great volume and length. Love the brush and how it's curved for your lashes, it's soooooo good for your bottom lashes, it really makes your bottom lashes look like extensions. I will repurchased this again! Absolutely amazing!

(waterproof version) I actually really like this mascara. It gives my eyelashes a very wispy and natural look, stays on all day and holds a curl quite well.

This is my sister's favorite, so she bought one for me. After curling my lashes, I've found that the curved brush allows for easy application to my lashes. This is important to me because my lashes lose their curl easily.

After applying about 2 coats, this mascara made my lashes look like spider legs! Not what I want! I want them to look fuller :(

They do add some length for me.

And I have a complaint about the packaging. If i'm not extra slow when pulling the wand out, the "plug ring" (forgot its exact name) that removes extra product will come out. This has happened to me with prior purchases of the same product.

Looking for another mascara!

This is a so-so mascara, its a really thick formula on a tiny brush. Its not really defining, or non-clumping. I think the only thing it does mainly is slightly thickens and curls. It doesnt give you that cat-eye effect, how its long at the tips and shorter as it goes in. It actually lengthens my lashes in the middle area the most than anything. It is super dark and its nice. The formula kinda reminds me of the loreal voluminous, but basically its not my cup of tea. It feels thick and heavy on your lashes and it balls up at the tips of your lashes.
Please let the mascara tube dry out for 5 weeks or so, because collosal mascaras tend to work better when waited for weeks. Great for bottom lashes though.

Not impressed with this product at all. I had a coupon so I bought the waterproof. This mascara doesn't seem to do anything aside from coat my lashes in black. No lengthening, no added volume, and no discernible "cat eye" effect that I can see. Plus it sheds during the day, blackening my under eye area. Not a fan.
