I like big dramatic lashes so for me this mascara wouldn't do the trick on its own. The formula is wet and easily glides onto lashes. The brush is medium/big and the bristles apply an equal amount to lashes so clumping is not and issue. I would have said this is a great layering mascara IF.. It didn't flake. Mascara a do not normally flake on me but this mascara does and that's a bummer. So I would not repurchase this mascara.

I'm giving this product all 5's! After spending a fortune on mascara I have finally found the perfect one! It doesn't clump at all, and one coat is more than enough for me. I used to always have to curl my lashes, but sometimes if I'm running late I can totally get away with not curling them with this mascara. It perfectly applies to all my lashes and adds the perfect amount of volume. The only thing I found wrong with it was that a lot comes out on the brush. I'd recommend wiping the brush on the tip of the tube, and problem solved! This mascara is most comparable to bare minerals, but for more than half the price. So worth it!

This is a hard product to review because I absolutely hate it, but would definitely recommend it to someone else. So this is "the thing". It gives my lashes a really nice look - adds nice volume and length. It is not dramatic nor does it impart just an every day look to my lashes, it just really nicely enhances the way my lashes look. The brush is a nice big brush and the bristles are relatively soft. My issue with this mascara is that I find the formula to be like glue on my lashes. Being a more mature woman, I hate the idea of having to rub and tug on my eye to remove mascara. I have purchased this mascara twice, and both times I ended up throwing it away in a matter of weeks. I really want to love it, but I don't feel it is worth the damage I have to do to my eye to remove it every day. Those are my thoughts on this product.

I bought this because of the hype on YT and the reviews here, however, I am on the opposite side...sorry Ladies! This one clumps and crumbles when I blink and it feels like dust and sand falling into my eyes all day! I just want to take it off as soon as I put it on. To be fair, it does go on thick and black, so it does add volume...not length, and it clumps together, so I have to comb through it later. I am not a fan and I will not re-purchase.

This is my favorite drug-store mascara. My lashes are pretty long but somewhat lacking in the fullness department. This mascara goes on easily, is heavily pigmented, and adds length and volume to my lashes. It does, however, have a tendency to clump, so that's why I took off a lippie. Make sure to wipe all of the excess off the brush before applying. I have several expensive mascaras in my personal makeup (use this one in my kit, mainly) and I always find myself going to this one. It's just...easy. It doesn't budge on me. Good stuff for the low price. I get it at Ulta.

This is very black. It would probably make a good finishing mascara used to add color. On it's own, it's not that impressive. It doesn't do much for length or volume. And I noticed a lot of clumping while applying the second coat of mascara. I had to comb out the lashes to make them look presentable. This also smells pretty terrible. I think L'oreal Carbon Black is much better.

I like to tout that this mascara gives me 'Italian princess' eyes, since it's made in Italy :)
I'd say the formula is the low-end equivalent to Lancome Hypnose; wet, thick and gloopy. The brush is completely sodden with product when removed from the tube, but the key to using this mascara is to blot the brush thoroughly before use. The pigmentation is a deep, velvety, dramatic black, and although this does not define as well as My Longest Lashes (also by Prestige), the look is sharp and bold, but natural. No flaking or smudging from a two-month-old tube.
The best feature of this mascara is that neither my lashes nor eyes look tired after a full day of wear. My gripe with drugstore mascara is that my lashes end up looking brittle and dry after a couple hours. This stuff stays crisp and clean; no raccoon eyes at the end of the day!

works like l'oreal voluminous, without the raccoon eyes and smudging.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Dry, Tan, Warm Hair: Black, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
Smudge and flakes horribly. Worn in the office couple of times but got pissed off coz it constantly makes me look silly panda. It does irritate my eyes as well. Don't waste your money as I did. Quest for the best mascara continues!!!.....
UPDATE: I finally had technique on how I can get this mascara fixed, i bought the clear gel mascara from Clarins and put it on top of this mascara, not only my curls stayed on it also diminished the raccoon effects in afternoon. I do wipe excess of this prestige mascara on tissue paper so I will get long, natural lashes effect. For that reason i will give 3 lippies here (for nice brush, blackest black color & price) but in future I will experiment with other mascara to partner with the gel mascara that I bought, or maybe try waterproof one. Will see and update which one will work best! :-) x

I have stick straight short Asian lashes and while this mascara does volumize +lengthen them, its a total mess on my eyes! It gets all over my lids and I have to be very, very careful how I apply it. If I have a lot of time and I'm careful, the results are AMAZING, but if I'm in a rush, I do NOT reach for this mascara. The formula is very "wet" and there's no place to get rid of the excess mascara on the wand so just keep your eye out for that before you try and swipe your lashes with them as you will end up with a big, wet, clumpy mess of lashes. But definitely worth it for nights out.

I buy a new masca every other month cuz I wear contacts and know that bacteria tend to grow on the brush. It's def worth the extra few bucks. A lengthener, definer and volumizer all in one!
Price: $10.07 CAD (London Drugs)
Pkg: fat bristly brush
It gives me quite a lot of volume from the very first coat. Length and volume is easy to build, altho I recommend piling on the coats after each coat dries
Too bad there's no waterproof version since it doesn't hold a curl super well

I got this for free in a sample bag so I can't really comment on price. I put two for price because in Australia because Prestige is a little overpriced here. I have dark eyelashes but was impressed with the depth of color this gave me. My eyelashes are a decent length but this separated them quite nicely and made them look well defined. The best thing about it is the total lack of flaking. I've even slept in it (naughty naughty) and woken up with it still in place. I may rebuy online at a good price but it's not a HG. Worth trying if you can get it at a good price

I am a huge fan of Prestige My Biggest Lashes and had noticed that this gets a lot of raves too, so I decided to give it a try.
As other reviewers noted, the formula does seem to change after a couple uses. At first, the formula was not as black as I was expecting, but still quite dark and gave good volume without clumps. I had to layer it on a bit but it didn't clump, flake or smudge and had a pretty, dark, clean look.
A couple of uses later, the formula became "thicker" I guess you could say, and now goes on very messy and clumpy. At the same time it looks much darker. If you don't have a lash comb, you better get one at the same time you get this, because you will need it. It really glops on and then you have to work through it with a comb a lot.
The brush is good and picks up all the lashes. This mascara doesn't do much for length; it's primarily a shade density mascara with a bit of volume, that holds a curl OK.
It's fine, but it's really not worth all the work to separate and clean up the lashes after applying to get it to look good. I will stick to My Biggest Lashes.

I am very impressed by this mascara. I have sensitive eyes, and this does not flake on me. I can't even feel it on, which is great. It definitely adds definition and lasts throughout the day. And it has intense pigmentation. It's nice to hear a name of a product and not be let down, because this really does give me 'my blackest lashes'. The only downside? Why isn't this product getting more buzz and publicity? It beats mascaras like Covergirl's Lash Blast out of the water for me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Medium, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Curly, Coarse Eyes: Brown
my favorite drugstore mascara. it is excellent at volumizing, it doesnt flake, it is pitch black in color. the only thing i will complain about is it is a bit prone to clumping a bit but it is much better than loreal voluminous (which clumps like crazy!) i highly recommend this mascara.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Dark Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I was really skeptical regarding this marcara but after reading all the reviews and the fact that I have yet to find a Mascara that really blows me away, Id figure I would give this a shot. Besides its only like $7.
All in all i really like this mascara, it has a good consistency; not to runny or dry,good size wand and the pigmentation is some of the darkest i have experianced ( def more black than dior blackout and loreal carbon black) and i have black hair so for any marcara to stand out it literally has to be JET BLACK . The formula does tend to clump a bit, but i actually like a little clumping since it make my lashes look thicker. I for sure will repurchase. I think it might actually beat out my beloved Rimmel sexy curves

Woah – My Blackest Lashes is EXTREME!!
My lashes are difficult – finding a good mascara for an extreme effect is difficult. Everything clumps on me, from drugstore to high end.
My Blackest Lashes, to date, is the best ‘extreme’ mascara I have tried.
But I must warn you – this mascara requires a lot of work to look good. As other reviewers have said, you can’t just swipe and go with this one.
I only use this for special occasions, and where I have time to invest in the application process.
I start off my making sure my lashes have been very lightly dusted off with a little loose powder. I then comb my lashes with my Tweezerman lash comb before application, to separate all my lashes prior to application and make sure they are already sitting in place. I then slowly and thoroughly apply one coat, starting with the inner lashes – applying gently there – and applying with a little more intensity as I move outward towards the outer corner lashes. I then really get into the roots/base in the outer corner and gently swipe out. I then very carefully go back with my Tweezerman lash comb, and carefully separate my lashes, fanning them out a little at the outer corners.
You need to be careful – anymore than one decent coat, and you will get nasty clumps that even the Tweezerman comb won’t get out for you. It dries quickly too, so even though you need to be thorough and careful, you still need to work within the drying time.
But the result is oh so worth it.
You will end up with deep black, almost glossy lashes, that are voluminous, long, and perfectly fanned out.
As for the negative – the tube doesn’t have one of those stopper things in the opening to remove excess mascara – so you need to be mindful of how much mascara is on the brush. The mascara is a ‘wet’ formula, and although it doesn’t seem to dry out quickly, it does seem to thicken up after a few weeks but not uniformly – it becomes slightly claggy, in my opinion.
The price here in Australia is insane - $20, compared to about $6USD. I am trying to find a cheaper way to get ahold of Prestige mascaras.
I will continue to purchase this mascara, unless I get lucky and find something even better again!

I think I've found my HG mascara. This stuff is amazing! I usually use either L'Oreal Voluminous or for a splurge Lancome Definicils. This is just as good, if not better, than those. Makes my lashes inky black but does NOT clump. And if one has the time and applies it like Lisa Eldridge (my guru!) instructs--"massaging" it close to the lashline--it almost makes you look as though you have eyeliner on. Will DEFINITELY be repurchasing.

This is a really good mascara. It doesn't give the greatest volume, but it is so black that you don't really need the volume for your lashes to look great!

My HG mascara is Cover Girls Lash Blast, but I like to try other stuff once and while. I heard alot of hype about this mascara from a YouTube beauty guru I like to watch. I was walking around Ulta one day and saw this on sale for under $4. The price was good for the mascara and decided to try it out. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and i'm very impressed. I curl my lashes before I put this on, and I don't notice it holding that much of the curl, but what it DOES do i'm more then pleased with. The pigmentation is really dark which I enjoy because I have dark features and I want my lashes to stand out as well. Definitely recommend this, I believe it retails for about $7 which is about average for a good drugstore mascara.
