I love this mascara. Recently i've tried so many of the major brands of mascara, all bought in Rite Aid or CVS. i used to really like a few of maybelline's volume and/or lengthening mascaras, but not anymore. Too crumbly and quick to dry up while still on my lashes, too "fungusy," and, generally, not what I've come to expect.

NYX's le Frou Frou did what it said it would -- gave length and volume. This, after having my lashes appear to break off and thin out, after using some of the aforementioned brands!

I bought this mascara in an upscale supermarket, of all places. The shade is black; I'm not sure if it's waterproof or not. Today is the first day I used it. If it turns out to be a disappointment, I will come back and edit my review.

This did *nothing* for my lashes
Looks like I put nothing on.
So sad.

And it smells funny too.
Packaging is nice though...[sigh]...

Cute packaging
Very black

This did little to nothing on my eyelashes, except darken them. I got it for free in a kit, otherwise I would have been really mad I spent money on it. NYX DOES make a great mascara, though - Propel My Eyes. Check it out instead.

Honestly I may as well have not been wearing any mascara and no one would be able to tell the difference... No noticeable difference. It did manage to flake and make my eyes itchy. Definitely not worth the trouble.

I would have never bought this stuff separately but it came in the NYX Mortal Instruments kit thingy and I've tried it a couple times but it's just...boring. It doesn't make any particular impact on my lashes! I have Wet 'n' Wild's megaprotein mascara that I also got as a part of a kit and it's pretty much the same, it doesn't do anything. It might be for those of you who enjoy more of a natural look, but it's definitely not my favorite by any means.

The thing that really bothers me about this stuff is that it stiiiiinks. Like picture a lake in early May when everything's melted and started heating up and all the algae is sitting on top of the water. Imagine that smell, and that's exactly what this mascara smells like. Well, that and drywall dust. It's really bizarre but really gross. I'm just not a fan in the slightest.

I love, love, love this product! I've tried so many different mascaras and I have to say this one is my all time favorite so far! First off, it's very cheap, I got it for 5.99 at ulta who has a great selection of NYX products. My friend actually recently told me like last week about NYX products, she said they have really good makeup and I definitely agree. I keep going back to purchase their products and so far I have not been disappointed! I kind of compare this mascara to Bad Gal lash by benefit but Le Frou Frou is definitely a cheaper version! They have a very similar effect. I gave it a 3/5 for packaging because it is just an all black tube, not really that attractive but thats the only (very small) downside I found. All in all, like i said, I love it!!

Le Frou Frou is the perfect name for this product as the wand has a ton of bristles and captures every hair on your lashes to make them look whispy and natural but with product on. It doesn't give a clumpy lashed look at all and stays put throught the day without any fallout or smearing to the lower lashline. Great product!!!!

It is a decent mascara, it doesn't clump, smudge, or smear, but it just doesn't give me the volume I am looking for.

This product is not horrible. I'm willing to use it up till its gone. The problem I have with it is It just makes my lashes feel very dry and brittle once it dries. The big positive I do have is it does not clump hardly ever! But I think I will be on my way after its empty!
