This product looked promising but made my lashes clump and droop. It took all natural curl out. I was not happy with the outcome. It is not a product for me. I wish it had worked b/c I love NYX.

This mascara wasn't horrible; it just didn't live up to the expectations I had based on its name. It wasn't particularly dramatic, and for some reason I didn't even notice a difference between the color "Extreme Black" and any ordinary black. It just didn't appear that intense to me. The brush, which is what creates the doll-eyed look, covers each lash alternately short and long. Ideally, this gives a 60's mod twiggy look, yet on me, it just looked a little incomplete. Maybe it's because I have sparse and light colored lashes and a little natural volume is required in order to pull off the look. While it didn't clump automatically, I found I had to work more carefully to avoid clumping. On the positive side, it didn't smudge and lasted most of the day. As an alternative to returning it I just use it on my outside lashes in the hope that the longer bristles will give them a bit of flair.

This mascara was a no-go for me. I'm usually a fan of NYX products but this just wasn't one of them. I have super stubborn asian lashes so what I look for in a mascara is mainly holding the curl (which is why I buy waterproof) and volume. This gave pretty good volume but did not hold my curl at all .. which automatically turned into a fail item for me. Another thing, this mascara also dried out on me really quickly. I usually throw them out every 3 months but I had to throw this one out after 2 months because it dried up on me. I must say though, for a waterproof mascara, it wasn't a huge pain taking it off at the end of the day unlike most waterproof mascaras. Overall, it didn't hold my curl for me so that's a no-no!

It's a very average mascara. It lenghtens only sligtly and it goes on so thinly. One coat is never enough. Also not much volume. The problem with one coat not being enough is that you have to constantly reapply. And when the mascara starts to dry, it becomes very unever. I wouldn't say clumpy, but you'll notice that your lashes aren't smooth, and there's ragged edges. It doesn't look very nice up close. I also don't see the "doll" factor very much. And it's certainly not waterproof as well. I was able to use my fingers to rub it off when in contact with water. For the price of SG$12 - $15 a tube, I would rather get a drugstore mascara. Maybe a few good things - the wand is nice and small (also oddly sculpted but that doesn't bother me), so I can get to those tine corners without the wand bumping onto my lid (don't we all hate that?), and also to my lower lashes. The mascara doesn't leave your lashes as hard as nails as well, so maybe that's good for some people. I wouldn't recommend this to people with short lashes but if you have naturally full lashes, this would be a good (or decent) mascara to aceentuate them.

Was looking for a cheaper alternative to my HG Shu Uemura Mascara Basic (now Ultimate Natural). While the NYX doesn't smudge it is too wet to hold a curl. I had no issues with the brush as I found it applies nicely. Also removes easily. Feels substantial when held like higher end brands. The shade is a beautiful glossy black. But I won't buy again as it simply makes my lashes stick straight out--negating the use of an eyelash curler!

This mascara isn't the best for volume, I like Dior show, or voluminous by loreal for that, but this mascara is good for a different look. It makes the lashes seem slick, or wet even though it's completely dry, and it's the blackest black ever. I normally like full thick brush wands, and this one is odd shaped, with it tapering in the middle of the brush, hard to get used to working with that,and you must work fast as it dries quickly. But, I do love the shiny length it provides and it stays on, flake free better than any other mascara that I have tried, while somehow being the easiest to remove. I simply wash my face, and you can see little black fibers coming off, and it washes away clean. With other mascaras I have to use another remover after washing my face to get what ends up under the eyes. How did they do this? I don't know but I find myself reaching for this one over others almost daily. My new favorite.

It was so difficult to remove this mascara with an eye makeup remover. Every time, I used this, I lost lashes. Simply not acceptable. Clumps lashes together, worse mascara ever!

i don't like this mascara. it doesn't give or hold a curl. why didnt i like it? to remove it is a pain. it comes off in little pieces and that makes it a bit difficult to clean from eyes since it gets all over the place.

This is not only the best waterproof mascara I have ever tried, it is the best mascara period. It gives curl, definition, volume and a real "doll-eyed" look. I compared it to Diorshow and I will never again spend $31 on a mascara. This is only $10 Cdn. Although it is very waterproof (I have gone swimming in it many times) it removes easily with Bifacil eye makeup remover. I plan to buy a couple of backups - you never know when a company will discontinue something fantastic.

This was *so* difficult to use. I have thin Asian lashes and when I used the brush that came with it, my lashes just clumped and drooped. I eventually replaced it with a silicone spool from an older mascara (after cleaning it, obviously), and just lived with the ill-fitting spool jammed into this packaging for this mascara. When I used the new silicone spool it was definitely easier, but still a lot of work to get long lashes.

The best waterproof mascara ever.
This became my HG while I was training for an Ironman triathlon - yes, I wear makeup to race. After hours in the ocean and pool this stuff never flaked or smeared.
It's not going to give huge volume, but it gives a beautiful, delicate, curled fringe of lashes. I've tried lots of mascaras - DiorShow, the entire Lancome line, etc. Honestly, this is super cheap and far better than any other mascara I've ever used.

**editing this review** I've downgraded this to a 3. While it did survive some splashing, it didn't survive full out hanging out in the wave pool with the family. At the end of the day it was nothing but flakes. Too bad. :( I'm still searching for my HG waterproof mascara.
I put this on for a day at the water park with hubby and kids and it worked well! No smearing or flaking at all. I wish it would lengthen my lashes more, but it's ok and I'm happy I didn't come out of the park with raccoon eyes. In fact it still looked just fine when it was time to take it off in the shower that night. It came off perfectly with the Neutrogena eye make up remover. Over all I'm happy with it, it's the best waterproof mascara I've used so far.

This mascara is not the best. It makes the lashes clump together and the brush doesn't allow the product to go on very easily. I think I would have faired better with another drugstore mascara. Anyway, it was worth giving a try and I will make the best of it.

I have thin, straight Asian eyelashes. This mascara is WAY too heavy for my lashes to even dream of holding a curl! It's thick, too (not a defined look), which is good for nighttime use but I'm searching for more of a daytime mascara. :(

I don't believe this is readily available in NZ, I bought this from an Australian based website.
I really like the packaging
Was reasonably priced
Stayed on well, no smudgies/panda eyes
I just didn't like the effect this gave my lashes, it seems to clump them together. For that reason, I won't repurchase.

I have been trying countless mascaras to find the one does not smudge under my eyes, and THIS IS IT. If you wear contacts and have oily skin, so all mascara smudge under your eyes. It is because you haven't tired this.You can find it at most beauty supplys or on eBay. Its price usually run from $6.99-11.99.

To be perfectly honest every mascara looks the same on me - Lengthening ones give me the same effect as volumising ones do and my lashes don't need curling.
Doll Eyes (and Chanel Inimitable) however, comb the hell out of my lashes, makes them longer and thicker and as long as I sweep cleanly and use one coat like I usually do, there's no clumping either.
I switched to this after my hit the six-month mark on my excellent but expensive MUFE Lengthening mascara.
So I'm glad that the NYX one is so good and costs so little. NYX's formula is waterproof but comes off easily with the Clinique Take the Day Off. I can toss it away in another six months without feeling the pinch.
I tried the Bourjois Elastic Mascara (roughly same price in India) but chose this one instead because the Elastic clumps and sends eyelashes this way and that as if they were brambles!
TIP: The bristles are thicker at the edges and thinner in the centre, When you're done with your first coat and need volume, don't do another sweep. Point the tip of the wand towards you (like you're going to poke your eye) and run sideways (back and forth) against your lashes instead. Turns up the volume!

I have stick straight, hard-to-cul, downward-facing lashes, so I always go for waterproof formulas as they hold curl better. This did not hold my curl AT ALL. I curled my lashes, swiped this on, and in minutes my lashes drooped. It clumps to high heaven, but at least adds a good amount of length, which is the only positive I can say for this. Back to Ulta the next day :(

I love waterproof mascaras over regular mascara, my eyes are often really teary and the regular stuff just doesn't do me justice as it always comes off! So, I decided to give this a try since I heard great reviews on the regular formula but of course, I picked water proof. I love the brush, it's different from many of my other drug store mascaras. It's a medium sized soft brush with some curves, It comes on pretty good and seperates my lashes pretty well also. It gives great length and I haven't found mascara that made my lashes as long as this. This is more for length than volume so if you're lookin for volume this isn't it. Overall, I do love this and would repurchase!

This is my new favourite mascara. I always need a waterproof mascara because 1) I have super straight lashes and need a waterproof mascara to hold a curl and 2) I have oily eyelids and normal mascaras get smudged easily.
Unlike other waterproof mascaras, this one comes off easily with makeup remover.
I think I'll be buying more once I'm done with thise tube :)
