This is a fantastic, volumizing mascara that doesn't flake or smudge. I don't feel like my eyelashes are crispy or weighted down either. I have white lashes, on the long side, but not very full. This really makes my eyes pop. My only complaint is that the brush is a little hefty so if I'm careless I can get some on my eyelids during application. To really give my eyes the WOW factor I use ELF mascara primer underneath. This will be my standard go to.

I think this a great mascara and I don't understand why it has such low rating! I think the only weird thing about it is that the shape of the brush makes it look like no mascara will get on the middle part of your lashes. However, it surprised me and it worked pretty good. About the price, I don't really know because I bought this mascara in a package where it came with the soft kohl eyeliner which is also amazing

This mascara is not the best and also not the worst. I like how it gave me big, bold lashes. But I hate that it smudges under my eyes. I don't want to constantly keep looking in the mirror and checking for smudges.

This is a good mascara that give good volume and a little bit of length. The brush is massive and hourglass shaped and provides good coverage in just one or two passes. It can be a bit wet and sometimes I have to scape off a bit before applying.

I like this mascara fine. The large brush coats all of my lashes in a rapid manner, the wet-ish formula glides easily from root to tip & the EXTREME Black 003 is well...extremely black. It provides length, jet black pigment but just not enough volume for my thin lashes. Perhaps in a couple weeks the formula will thicken up as it dries a little & I ll up-date if I get more volume then. I paid $7.90 & won't re-purchase. Regret just not re-purchasing my trusty old "Colossal" but do like trying new mascaras often. Oh well.

Worst mascara ive ever tried by far, the first few seconds i had it on it looked pretty good, but then my eyelashes started falling flat, nd only the midsection of my eyelashes seemed lengthened by it. Half an hour passed and i lightly touched them with my pinky and there was still wet mascara product on them and it transferred on my pinky, very dissapointing. But eh what do u expect from rimmell lol their mascaras almost always suck

This is an alright mascara. I've liked/repurchased some other Rimmel mascaras (Sexy Curves and Glam Eyes) but this one is just so-so. It doesn't lengthen as much as Glam Eyes and I have to put on so many coats to get the volume I want, so when I go to remove my makeup at the end of the day I feel like I could rub my eyes for hours and turn an entire washcloth black. Also I got this in the non-waterproof version because I hate waterproof mascaras (too hard to remove) and it always smears and bleeds underneath my eyes. I've never had this problem with Glam Eyes, which I also get in the non-waterproof formula.

I don't hate it, but it's nothing I'd buy again.

I honestly don't know why there are so many bad reviews on this product. I personally really liked this product despite a few things. The first time I bought this and put it on I thought it was absolutely wonderful not only that but also my sister and my mother both loved it has well. It makes my eyelashes, dark, long, full of volume, and is just wonderful. Keep in mind i do have long eyelashes that curl up except, they are thin. But this mascara did work on my sister who has stick straight lashes that are thick and long. It also worked on my moms eyelashes which are very sparse short and thin. I'll admit a lot of product does comes out of the tube which is the companies fault in thks product but I personally dont mind wiping the tube a little.

Overall I like it, but I wouldn't buy it again because it does leave a residue of mascara after a couple of hours on my under eye area. It's not a true flaker where huge flakes fall off, but instead those little grains of mascara fall from your lashes over time so you have to check on it through out the day. I don't get any smudging or transfer. I like the hourglass wand & using it dead in the center of my lashes first, then just making sure it gets both sides gives me the biggest doe eyed lashes...I really wish this didn't leave a residue because I love the look. Mine is not waterproof so it comes off as soon as water hits it. This also holds my lashes up & doesn't pull them down. I'm going to see if this comes in waterproof because maybe that wont leave a residue or try it with some CG lash blast on top. The Last Blast waterproof never leaves a residue for me, but it gives you a rather plain lash look unless you pull your lashes out to the side like a cat eye while applying it. But I can't get a big doe eye with it. :)
