This was my Sephora Insider Bday Gift today along with a tiny tube of highlighter. I'm so happy to report that this is a great mascara for me. The brush is made of very fine, flexible bristles which are plastic, not hair. I truly think this allows for a more even, thinner application. The other design piece of the mascara is the the fact that the neck of the tube is so narrow so that you get just the right amount of product on the bristles to create thin layers on the lashes.
I used 3 coats and found that it made my lashes more dense looking, colored them really well and little to no smudges. The size of the brush is very long so it requires using the tip to get the corner lashes. Not a big deal but it ijust takes a bit long to apply if you don't want to clean up your work.
As far as removal...I read the reviews about it being hard to remove and pulling out lashes. I used Estee lauder's Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, saturated a cotton pad with it, held it against my lashes waited and then wiped the mascara away with no problems. I'm thinking that maybe some ladies are not taking the time to 1) use a proper remover and not a cleanser to remove their eye make up 2) Not letting the formula penetrate long enough to dissolve the product.
Will I buy it again? Yes. Is it expensive? Yes.

The best mascara I have ever used!!
No clumps, accentuates all of my lashes individually and it is really buildable if you want to wear a lot.
The name literally says it all to be honest
Only downside is that is on the pricier side but it is well worth it!!
If you dont want a plasticy applicator then dont buy it.
I actually got a double set which included a mini which was cool

I have mixed feelings about this mascara- I do return to buying it because I do like the results.. gives great volume to my lashes with a bit of lengthening too. the downsides of this for me I 1) the price... expensive as I find it dries out quickly 2) the fact that it dries out quickly 3) I find the formula dries out my lashes and they seem to break when removing ?
Also in one that I have bought in the past the mascara tube doesn't get rid of excess product so is coated in it and basically un-useable.
all that said it is great for dramatic eyes for a night out but not for an everyday mascara.

I like what this mascara did to my lashes, but it smudged like crazy on me! I always ended up with little black dots underneath my eyebrow. Not worth the length and volume it gives me! Would not purchase again. My Loreal Voluminous Power is way better.

I watch a ton of YouTube videos and after hearing the hype around this mascara for months I got a sample and fell in love, I even ordered a full size the next day! I didn't think I could ever justify £20 on a mascara when there are fantastic ones on the market for under a tenner, but this one blows them all out of the water. It's wet, pigmented and adds length and volume all at once. It is expensive, which I why I didn't give it the full 5*, but I will be repurchasing.

I got this mascara as a sample from Sephora. I really love it and will by the full bottle once my sample runs out. The only con is that it's difficult to remove. But the pros far outweigh that. I can tell an immediate difference when I apply it. There's some extra oomph that other brands I've tried just don't have. This product bumped my Rimmell Scandaleyes or whatever right out of the running.

Overall, I think this is a good mascara. It's more on the wet side. Gives lots of volume and so makes my lashes stand out by making them blacker than I thought possible. Not sure about the lengthening - I didn't really notice it doing much in that area. Unfortunately, it doesn't hold a curl on my lashes, but if it did, this would probably be a perfect mascara to me. It does, however, cost a bit more than what I'd want to pay here, but if it could hold a curl, I would be willing to overlook its price.

I am very picky when it comes to mascara's. The genius behind any mascara is in the brush, and Benefit knows this. I already have pretty long top and bottom lashes, but they aren't naturally dark, they aren't naturally voluminous and they are pretty straight. So the reason I like this mascara is because it lengthens, volumizes, curls, it doesn't clump, it's buildable, it never flakes, it's lightweight (doesn't feel like it's weighing down your lashes all day), the brush gets into all the small eyelashes, it's extremely dark black (I hate that dull looking black that some mascara's and eyeliners have), it doesn't smell at all (which I like because sometimes I find mascara's have a funky smell before they dry), it dries fairly quickly but not so quickly that you can't work with it without it clumping, it is not waterproof but it will not budge until you take it off (something I also prefer because I find waterproof mascara's are hard to take off), I also think the packaging is pretty and I find with the shape of the tube I don't waste product. The only con I can possibly come up with is the $30 price tag. Though, I am willing to look past the outrageous price because I absolutely love the product. Also I have been lucky enough to receive 2+ free deluxe sample size mascara's from different reward gifts. These samples are large and last a long time so in my eyes, they kind of make up for the price of buying the full size.

I was SUPER excited to try this out since everyone was hyping about it but I ended up being pretty disappointed with it. First off, I have super stubborn Asian lashes so I'm looking for a mascara that can give me good volume and length and hold a curl. Wearing this by itself, I noticed it gave a decent amount of volume and length. However, it did not hold my curl at all. I also noticed at the end of the day, there would be some smudging on my lower lash line. That just goes back to the fact that I should just stick with waterproof mascaras. I ended up using this on top of my other waterproof mascaras just to add volume and not waste the product. I also noticed that people raved about the wand. Honestly, I rarely used the spikey ball at the end because i noticed that when I do use it, it just created smudging.
