I was surprised at the poor ratings for this mascara. I have been using the Amped Waterproof Mascara for about 1 year and absolutely love it. I have Hashimoto's disease and it affects my thyroid resulting in the need for me to take medication for my thyroid to work properly. The result is that my eyebrows, eyelashes and all body hair has thinned...good for not having to shave or wax a lot but bad on my hair, eyebrows and eye lashes. I kid that I need a microscope to find my eyelashes to apply mascara. I also wear contacts and have never had issues with flaking from this mascara. What I think makes the difference in how I use compare to others that have reviewed is that I use a high end lash primer (2 coats) before applying 2-3 coats of Amped WP Mascara. I wait a minute or so between coats and de-clump using a metal eye lash comb. I finish the look by curling with a heated eye lash curler. I have no issues with smudging, flaking, etc.
To remove my eye make-up is another story and it did take me a few months to find a remover that lived up to the task! My search ended with Make Up Forever's Sens Eyes Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover. I pump a small amount out and work it gently into my eyelashes, then work it around my eyes and up into my eyebrows to remove all eye make-up, then wipe gently with a tissue. Sometimes I will need to work a small amount back across my eyelashes and I will leave it on for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then wipe off. This formula is great for sensitive eyes and it works to remove all my eye make-up.
I am very happy with this combination and will continue to use it. Prior to finding the Amped WP Mascara I was using the regular Amped and it too was a great product but would smear when wet and let's face it, when you live in South Texas and deal with the humidity all year round you are going to sweat or as we say "glisten" which creates the opportunity for make-up to start running and smearing.

This is a review for the Waterproof mascara in the color is 'Soft Black'
Packaging and Wand- The packaging is a sleek grey-blue matte metal. The wand is one of the spiky rubber ones, and is reasonably sized. The wand itself is rather flexible. I don't know how to feel about that, but it's not a problem to work with. The tube itself has a neat little stopper/plug sortof thing that scrapes off the excess, which I appreciate.
Color- It is indeed a soft black. In one coat it darkens my lashes, in two the color is true soft black, and very pretty.
Scent-smells of acrylic paints.
Waterproofy-ness and Formula- It's waterproof. It took cold cream to make this sucker budge. I had no issues with it transferring from my bottom lashes to my undereyes either. Once it's on, it's there to stay. The formula is medium to thick, and for lack of a better word, waxy. The waxy formula is a major fail in my opinion. I can get the mascara to look decent and then, before I know it and just by blinking normally, all my lashes get stuck/clumped together. It never fully dries, until I take it off it remains tacky and sticky feeling. Will not repurchase.

I have used several Ulta products and their Legendary Lengths mascara in either soft black or jet black has always been my go-to mascara. I got this mascara to try as they were buy one get one free at my local store. I bought my go to and got this one free. I was beyond highly disappointed with this product. I combed my lashes before applying, applied the product, combed through my lashes again afterward and an hour later my lashes are all stuck together in about three large clumps. Also, after wearing the mascara for almost eight hours, I can touch my finger to my lashes and it still feels tacky and sticky. I have naturally long and dark lashes so I am not a two or three coat girl. I only apply one coat. I also can not get the mascara off with my normal makeup remover. It is like putting clay or putty on your eyelashes. I can honestly say this is one of the worst mascaras I have ever used. I think the only things positive I can say about it is that I like the shape of the brush and I like that it comes in jet black.

EDIT: I have repurchased Amped Lashes since I made my original review & I can definitely say that it's NOT the same as the free mascara I received in the $17.50 Ulta kit. This stuff smells different (gross), and I don't think it ever dries. Be prepared for your eyelashes to stick shut every time you blink. It's not even in the same packaging. What gives? Won't repurchase!!
After using Ulta Amped Lashes for a few weeks, it is officially my HG mascara! I've used all of the "cult favorites" from Maybelline & Cover Girl, but every time I've had major issues with flaking. Before Amped Lashes, I'd have little flakes of fallout under my eyes part-way through a 9-hour work day. This stuff may take a little longer to dry, but it does NOT flake. The wand is somewhat short, but I feel it gives better control. The brush is one of those rubber-y ones. It tapers nicely at the end, and isn't too thick around. It gives great separation and lift. I'm very pleased. I thought it wasn't going to be nice (since it's just a store brand), but I'm glad I was sorely mistaken! It's $10, but oftentimes Ulta has a BOGO-free sale.

This isn't the worst mascara I have used, but it certainly isn't the best. I absolutely LOVE the packaging ... the sleek design and everything. The mascara just doesn't cut it. It's very very wet. I hate very very wet mascara. It smudges like crazy and I get raccoon eyes. I have given this a fair chance because I have tried it out every day for a week. Who knows, maybe I'll love it once it dries up a bit, as I have a tendency to do that. I love when the mascara is somewhat dry, for me it works better. I can see it for an everyday mascara or if you need to keep a spare one at work or something.

In terms of packaging and application, it was good. I liked the way it went on, and the cute blue Ďbottleí was nice too! The only bad part, which is the worst, is that itís incredibly sticky. Even an hour later, I canít open my eyes without feeling my bottom and top lashes stick together. Itís awful. I feel like I put glue on myself. So, I liked it but hated it at the same time. I guess it wasnít a bad deal because i found it at the clearance section for $4, but still. Itís kind of useless.

Well I tried it out on a 2 for 1 sale and LOVED it. Two coats is best for me and I was pleasantly surprised for a $5 mascara (regularly $10). I thought I found my new go to... Went back with my monthly coupon... So still under $10, bragged it up to the cashier... Got home opened it up and they changed the brush, I hate it now. It used to have a neat rubber star like brush, it did an amazing job with heavy coverage and no clumping, now its a pretty typical brush. I tried switching brushes old for new but the case is also just slightly changed so I can make it work but not worth the trouble... I won't buy it again.... Unless they go back to the old brush. I really never knew how much difference a brush could make but thus was hero to zero for me.

Great mascara! Everyone compliments my lashes when i wear this. It doesn't clump or flake. It's also very black and it looks pretty natural.

I got this from my friend for free.
It's not bad as a mascara, but oh god, after like 5 min it flakes like crazy on me. :(
Used it over a week to work it out, but nothing worked.
Not going to purchase it.

I ran across this after running out of my normal mascara and rummaging through my daughters makeup. It was bad I'll say. It separated and lengthened decent but the volume wasn't really there and the volume I did get was after about 4 coats. For the price, I was surprised it was decent. I like volume and length, definetly like my lashes to look fake, this didn't do it but for someone that likes the length and natural look, you should try this one.

I received this as a freebie in my ulta gift bag. The pros are: a sleek silver tube, a thick formula, holds a curl well, and doesn't flake. The cons are: clumpy lashes are easy with this formula so take your time to apply, and some light smudging under the eyes at the end of the day. Other than that I give it 5 stars.

I adore this mascara! I wasnt expecting it to be great Ulta brand cosmetics aren't my favorite, their brushes neither. But I was pleasantly surprised. 1 coat is literally all you need. I like to add drama so I apply 2, but one does the trick! Im not sure how much this mascara is but it definetley is added to my favorites! & also if you have sensitive eyes I'd recommend this, I have very sensitive eyes & this mascara doesn't irritate them at all :)

I love this mascara. I got this for free when I bought $17.50 worth of Ulta cosmetics. It came with a bag and some other makeup, but this was full sized. This is one of the very few mascaras that will actually hold a curl for me. My lashes are long, but they tend to just stick straight out and flare outwards toward the outer corners of my eyes. I don't like buying expensive mascara because they have to be replaced so often for hygienic purposes. This mascara can clump, just like any other mascara. Just don't go crazy with it. A little goes a long way.
The brush reminds me of CG Lashblast and the tube does a very good job of removing excess mascara from the brush. I don't buy CG anymore because they test on animals and according to ChaCha they found somewhere on the PETA website that Ulta Brand does not test.

I really like this. It really emphasizes my lashes and makes them look pretty. It doesn't smudge or give me raccoon eyes. I would buy this again.

I got this for free with the "Buy $17.50 worth of Ulta Merchandise and Get an $88 cosmetics set" or something like that. I was surprised they had included a full size mascara, and I rarely change up mascaras, but I still gave it a shot.
This doesn't give as much volume as I'd thought. It seemed to volumize a little, but it did seem a bit more lengthening. My lashes were too separated to really be "volumized". This didn't hold a curl whatsoever, which is what I would hope a volumizing mascara would do. Unfortunately, my lashes just drooped down after five minutes. This doesn't make my lashes stand out at all...And it's more expensive than a drugstore mascara at regular retail. Definitely not worth that extra money. It barely does anything for your lashes

Got this for free with a ton of other stuff in the buy $17.50 of Ulta Brand get a set free (something like that)
It's a really nice mascara. It has rubber bristles that comb through my lashes nicely. Can clump a little bit, but brushes right out for me. Nice length and volume. Decent separation. Not skimpy on the dark color.
Pricey - a bit, but delivers for me. Definitely a keeper.

Whoa, where's all the hate coming from?
I actually like this mascara a lot. It made my eyelashes super long and thick. I look like I have falsies on after I apply this stuff... it's awesome!
I also like the tube. It's slick and pretty and easy to just throw in my small little wristlet. Most mascaras come in ridiculously bulky packaging but this is slim and nice.
I think it could be cheaper for what it is though. Actually I think most mascaras are too expensive but I guess that's just me.
And I didn't give it a full 5 rating because of the feel of this product. It feels kine of heavy after a while and can get annoying.
But I'm willing to put up with that for the way it looks. Seriously stunning lashes!

Why all the hate? Personally, I love this product! I have the waterproof version (in the blue tube) and have no compliants. To me, it reminds me of the CoverGirl Exact Eyelights mascara, only I HATE the waterproof version of that mascara! (the normal version is amazing, however) Also, this comes without the shimmer, which some people would prefer not to have in their mascaras.

I have used this and the waterproof version and can say the non waterproof one is DECENT. I've used it as a back up mascara on and off for a while now, the problem is it always leaves black smudges on my eyelids as the day goes. I'm constantly wiping off the black half moon smudge on my upper eye lids.
So I decided to try the waterproof one(blue tube) assuming this may not give me this problem. If I was able to even get a single coat on of this stuff I may know, but good luck getting this on your lashes without them clumping, sticking together, etc. It was like combing on Elmer's glue, literally. My lashes stuck together, became heavy and droopy like and putting a comb through them didn't help at all. This is probably the WORST mascara of all the bad ones I've ever tried. Don't waste your money, time, or effort.
