I am in love with this mascara. I have never worn a mascara that stays put so well and then removes so easily. I just rub my lashes with warm water from the sink and voila! the lash tubes slide right off. There are no nasty racoon eyes--EVER. The rep who sold this to me said that lots of people freak out when they see the mascara tubes in the sink and think their lashes are falling out, so I was prepared for that the first time I took it off.
I was worried after reading a review that said the tube gets flaky after six weeks. I'm on week 10 with my first tube and I can still wear it, although I can tell its getting a bit dryer, which gives the mascara a tendency to flake. But I still haven't thought it was so bad that I've opened my new tube yet. I think 2 1/2 months is not fantastic, but also not too bad for a tube of mascara to last.
I don't really think this stuff curls my lashes, so I don't know why its named curling mascara. But as far as I'm concerned, they can call it what they want and I will still buy it. Long, defined, dark, thick lashes that don't smudge, smear or require sandblasting to remove!

This is an AMAZING mascara. it stays on all day with smudging and doesn't bothr my sensitive eyes at all. It makes my lashes look incredibly long. Unfortunately, the packaging is awful. Mascara got caught in the tthreads of the screw top just once, and it dried shut. Instead of untwisting, now the tube just comes apart. It was an expensive tube of mascara, totally wasted. Do not buy.

I have been on the hunt for an HG mascara for the last few years and have tried dozens. I stray from this sometimes, to save money, but keep coming back because nothing compares. I would rate this 4 1/2 stars, rather than 5, as a tube only lasts a few weeks for me, then it becomes flaky. The reason I give this such a high rating.. If I use this with Lancome XL primer, then my lashes practically touch my eyebrows, they become so long! UPDATE: I guess they changed the formula on this one. I just bought a new tube. It is no longer a tubing mascara and smudged on me big time..

Best mascara that exists, I absolutely can't wear anything else. I sell makeup for a living and I've tried at least 50 other high end mascaras. The formula is fantastic. I dont understand why people are complaining that it gets goopy - if you're messy with it of course it's going to get everywhere. I use it with the Laura Mercier eyelash curler and it makes my crummy eyelashes look amazing!

LOVE this mascara! I only discovered it due to Nordstrom's annual "buy two get one free" sale on mascara. I don't think I'll ever buy another type of mascara so long as this is on the market.
My biggest pet peeve with mascara is how virtually all of them transfer below the eye as the day wears on. Other issues, such as flaking seem to only happen with certain mascaras, but the progressively increasing raccoon eyes? Never could completely escape them until I tried this,
I had tried a tubing mascara when the technology first came out, and I was not impressed. I don't remember the brand name, but it did nothing to thicken my lashes and they looked spidery and very underwhelming.
I have long eyelashes, not especially thick, just kind of average. I look for a mascara that gives volume and will hold curl, and if not actually curl, won't weigh my lashes down. The main reason I don't like Diorshow (not a tubing mascara), is because of this.
This list is long that I've tried over the years from drugstore to high end department store brands.
For reference, I have liked Armani Eyes to Kill. (not so much the Excess version though) I have repurchased this often and was my favorite until finding this gem.
No lash curler needed, there is a definite lift with this mascara, maybe not a lot of curl, but they still go upwards and stay that way. No crunchy lashes, no smudges at all —zero—removes easily with just warm water in the shower. I actually use a cleansing oil first, due to other makeup, and massage into skin, add a little bit of warm water to emulsify, etc. But, I've tried just warm shower water to experiment, and after a short while the mascara still will come off with no tugging and no smudges on skin under the eyes at all.
The only negative for me, (as others have mentioned) is that the tube gets goopy and needs to be wiped periodically.
I am uploading a couple of photos of my lashes with this on, not a wonderful photo, (iPhone camera) but you can see what one coat of this particular mascara will achieve. Same eye, one photo taken in profile with the lid slightly lowered, the other photo shows eyelid opened fully. These photos were taken at the end of the day after this mascara was on for over 8 hours, some of that time outside in 90° heat!

I have used this mascara for almost 6 years and I will not use any other brand. It glides on very easily and does not heavily coats your lashes, so if that is what you are looking for this may not be for you. I love that all I have to do to take it off is rinse my face with water and gently pull off the mascara. No wiping, rubbing or tugging. It's not waterproof, but there's no reason to care because it won't run or smear. If you like a natural look with little or no removal effort, try this.

This may be one of the few mascaras I love. I am super picky about mascaras and need them to be perfect. My criteria is water proof, no flaking, easy to put on, makes my lashes look awesome. That being said, this does ALL of that and then some.
The trick to making this work is to use this in conjunction with their High Volume Mascara. If you go in there with the small brush first and then right after that with the Lash Curling Brush, you'll get drop dead gorgeous lashes. The mascara stays on forever. The tubes are SO easy to get off, which I love. I hate having mascara/eyeliner leftover on my eyes. This mascara truly is amazing and I feel like everyone should try it!

I absolutely love this mascara! My lashes are well defined, wide awake and fanned out. I wear it over Dior's lash plumping serum or just by itself. Never had a clump or racoon eyes. And here's the trick to taking it off: just have to get them really wet. Preferably in the shower and itll all come off so easily between your fingers. This is a HG for me :)

This and Blinc are the only mascaras that do not end up under my eyes in an hour or two even with a primer and/or powder, including waterproof formulas and other tubes. The Blinc is a wonderful mascara but the brush doesn't make long, lush lashes like this Lash Curling Mascara by Trish McEvoy. (My lashes have a nice length and gentle curl naturally, but they're brown with blond ends so you can't see them very well.) The Bling also takes longer to dry.
This mascara makes long, beautiful lashes that last for hours and hours and hours. It comes off super easily with water and gentle rubbing. No need to lose eyelashes from rubbing too hard, just use more water. I wish I'd found this mascara a few years ago ... I wouldn't have spent so much money on lash extensions and been frustrated with the problems that go along with them.
Highly recommended, especially for those who always end up with mascara under their eyes!!

This has to be for people with curly lashes. I have very straight lashes so I curl them, this straightened them righ back. Such a waste of money, luckliy I was able to return. I loved the ease with which it washes of fand no smudging, but I hate straight lashes.

This is perfect in every way. The formula is richly pigmented. The wand is longer than most, so I can actually see my application. The brush is not oversized, the bristles packed not too tightly or loosely. No streaks, raccoon eyes, stiffness, none of that. NONE. The only thing I noticed is that getting if off the lashes requires extreme care. I believe this formula is meant to create "tubes" around the lashes, which means getting it to break down is a chore. I did better with a soapy cleanser than an eye makeup remover. This mascara reminds me of the ones from the 1970''s before the US supersized everything. Mascara is meant to be used for 3-4 months and I don't play games with keeping them longer than that time period, so this is really perfect for me. I will definately purchase again.

HATED it!! Nordi recently had a buy 2 get one free special on mascara, so I decided to try out Trish. I returned it after wearing it for 3 days. It made my lashes spidery. If it was $15 I would probably keep and wear it ocassionally but i cannot justify $30 on this product.
I exchanged this for EL Sumptuous Extreme which I LOVE!

This is a great mascara for me. Actually, this is the best mascara for me. Better than, YSL, Chanel, Lancome, Armani, Dior, Benefit (I could go on). Adds the vavavoom that we all love! I recommended it to my mother and it was just alright on her. I have big natural black lashes and she has thinner lighter lashes. If this is not working for you, I recommend a primer and then apply. Well worth the money for a no smudge mascara!

After having used Bare Escentuals and Bobbi Brown mascaras, I re-discovered Trish McEvoy after a lengthy absence. This is so far the best mascara I have used, and probably won't keep searching unless I can no longer afford the splurge. Nordstrom had a promotion recently and I received a free mascara for purchasing two. Lash Curling Mascara gives your lashes that wow factor. Start at the base of the upper lashes as close to the lashline as possible. Use the tip of the wand to give an extra oomph to the outer lashes. The product removes with just a little tepid water and gentle pressure from fingertips or cotton, no remover needed. I apply mascara to the upper lashes only as it provides a lifted effect to the eyes. This is especially important as we get older.

Love this mascara, have been buying it for years.
I am lucky enough to have fairly long natural eyelashes but they are straight and I can't be bothered to use an eyelash curler. This mascara makes my eyelashes a bit longer but most of all makes them nice and curly. I have tried TM's other mascara but that didn't work for me at all (made my eyelashes look thin and spidery).
The thing that TM's mascaras have in common is they are smudge free, you can wear them all day and no risk of panda eyes etc. This is an expensive mascara, I think something like £25 in the UK which us welll ouch. But it works! I have spent more on trying out other mascaras in a hope of a cheaper replacement and thrown away, counter ones, massmarket ones and even muled from Japan (where incidentally the TM ones are made).

I just bought my 4th tub of this mascara. Considering that I've only been using it since May, I find this disconcerting. I love the way it curls and lengthens my lashes. I especially love how it never ever smudges and is so easy to remove. I hate that it seems to dry very quickly and is fairly expensive. Most other mascaras in this price range last about 3 months for me before drying out. This last no more than 6 weeks before it starts getting chunky and clumpy. I tried the L'Oreal version that someone mentioned in their review but was soooo disappointed. So I guess I will continue to buy this...

This was the first tubing mascara I purchased and I was immediately hooked to the concept. I want a 100% smudge-free mascara that comes off easily with warm water and all of Trish McEvoy's are exactly that. So it's performance is not an issue, but the price and packaging is. I'll force myself to pay $28 for a smudge and flake free mascara, but what I don't want is most of that money wasted due to product continously seeping out the tube whenever I unscrew it due to poor packaging. Product always gets on my fingers and all over the outside of the tube. I bought this one and also Trish's High Volume mascara and they both have the same problem. So for that I resorted to buying a drugstore tubing mascara (L'Oreal) and I'm quite happy with it. Not only am I saving a ton of money (now I don't feel guilty) but product never seeps out the tube and gets all over my fingers.

My lashes: Fine, light brown, somewhat curly, can get resonably lengthy with proper care, a little unruly at times: end lashes have a tendency to grow sideways (thankfully in the right direction!).
Me and Lash Curlers: not a good fit. Most curlers can't reach those end lashes, or they reach the end lashes and not the middle lashes. I don't like to use curlers because it's added time to my routine, and I'm of the mindset that if I'm using mascara, it should be good enough to not have to worry about an extra step.
Me and Trish: I used to pass the Trish counter and sniff at it. I hate the 'planner' idea not only because I'm not a 'planner' type of girl when it comes to cosmetics, but also because purchasing one of those pricey planners commits me to one brand and THAT is a turn off for me. I am not brand loyal. Anyway, I was talking to a Trish SA one day (who was bluntly honest) and telling her about my frustrating quest for mascara that could survive my sensitive eyes, occasional rubbing, last 10-12 hour working days, and not beat the shit out of my lashes (I've lost a few over the years, and it sucks more than I'd like to admit). She told me she took a crying fit one day and was wearing Curling Mascara and it didn't move AT ALL. I was skeptical but handed over $28 +tax, took it home and here we are on the review page of MUA, almost 6 months later.
First the bad news: The packaging kind of blows, from a techinical standpoint. Other reviewers have mentioned the same problem - it tends to migrate up around the top and causes a bit of gunky build up and I have to make sure it's clean after and before each use so it stays sealed. The tube itself is attractive: slim, sleek black packaging.
The great news: I don't have to worry about clumps, broken lashes, tears, sweat, unconscious rubbing of my eyes, and waking up in the morning and looking in the mirror to realize the scary looking under-eye shadows are actually remnants of mascara that didn't come off with washing. I wash it off by rubbing my face in running water and letting the little black bits fall away (no lashes lost in cleansing!). It's super easy to remove, just rub eyes gently and off it comes.
My lashes look curled, natural, clump-free (I mentioned it already, but seriously, that is a HUGE asset in mascara) and flirty. One coat gives a my-lashes-but-a-million-times better, 2 coats adds drama. I don't bother with 3, because why tempt the Mascara God?
I would swear off any other mascara for the rest of my life if Trish McEvoy promises to continue churning out Lash Curling Mascara as long as I'm around. I did screw around with a few other mascaras, just to see the difference, but nothing has come CLOSE to performing the way this mascara does.
The price point hurts a little. $28 is not a cheap thrill for lashes. But - - I'm nearing almost 6 months of use and am just now seeing that I'm coming to the end of tube; I have to work it just a little as I'm pulling the wand out to apply. So $28 for exactly what I need in a mascara is actually a good deal. I'll have to remind myself of this in a few weeks when it's time to replace...

I sampled this product but it did little to curl my lashes and was horrible to take off! Instead i'm using Diorshow Iconic which is much better although i'm open to trying other proclaimed curling mascaras....

This is an amazing mascara-truly lengthens,defines,curls like no other.But-it all comes w/a price to pay,from your pocketbook,and your lashes.This is a tubing mascara so regular makeup remover won't take it off.You have to "rub" the tubes off,and about 5-6 of lashes came with it.Straight back to the store that went.
