ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS MASCARA!! It's the only mascara I've tried that doesn't clump and gives your lashes volume and length!! For the price, it's the best!! I've tried so many mascaras & this one is truly my top favorite!!

Great mascara. I took off one lippie because I have to keep putting water in my tube to keep it usable. I like the other one better. I dont remember what it is called, it comes with a yellow brush. And get the darkest black, i have this in brown and it doesnt look as great as the blackest black does.

Love this! I have longs lashes anyway, but I love how this really does separate them and make them even better. This never clumps or leaves little bits like so many other products do. I would totally buy again!

I've been using this mascara for years now, and after trying other mascaras I keep coming back to this one. I use this in Deep Blue which is good for an everyday/natural look for my brown eyes. It comes on clean and neat, never gunky. In my experience it does exactly what it says: stretches and separates. The only con I would say about this is that it doesn't add much volume to my lashes, but it does make them look longer. Definitely a mascara I'd keep using!

Its a decent mascara. Very good holding power.
Smuges a bit on me.

Used to be my fave mascara. Maybe they changed the formula, or something? I remember it being great at separating and "fanning out" the lashes, but I ran out to buy some after not using this for a few years, and it's not as great as I remember.
It's okay, but not the greatest. I prefer the drier formula though, because the runnier formulas are so wet, the glop and make the lashes stick together.
Probably will not buy again.

MY HG!!!! This is my favorite. I wear it in all my FOTDs and love love love it. It gives amazing length and I've never had a clump even when I'm trying to put it on at the speed of light. Doesn't flake but I do think it runs off more easily than 2000 calorie when your face gets wet. It gives me okie volume on it's own but since it doesn't claim to give super volume and I curl my lashes anyways, I don't care. When I do curl, it doesn't deflate my lashes and they remain curly for a good 6 hours. Such a good basic mascara for everyday and for less than $5 it's even better.

This is my all time favorite mascara. I've been using this product for about 7 years now. I have naturally long lashes and this seperates and makes them fat. Many mascaras I've used are either too wet and guky like Maybelline products or too dry like Loreal. For a cheap drug store product, Stretch and Seperate covers the job of both volume and lengthening. very easy to wash off. Everyone thinks I have fake lashes when I use this and it looks natural compared to some other mascaras that looks clumpy and icky. I would def buy again always!!

Overall rating: If I had the option, I would have said "maybe" to the buy-again question. I got this in black from a swap, and it was NIP. However, when I opened it, it was extremely dry. I don't know if this is normal or if it's usually that way, but I like it enough to try a new tunbe when this one runs out. I thinned it out with a drop or two of jojoba oil, and that seemed to help a bit. If it clumps up on me again, I'll try a little Visine before giving up and buying a new tube. I do, however, like how it lengthens my lashes as promised. I also think I like the curved brush although I'm not sure it lends anything special to application.
Price: Low-end; between $7 and $8, even less when on sale.
Packaging: Curved spoolie in curvy tube.
Would I buy again: Yes.

My HG mascara...and I've tried a lot of them. Lengthens, doesn't clump, looks dramatic without looking unnatural. The best of the "new mascara wand" group (LashExact, Define-A-Lash, etc).

I love this! It's a staple! I use the brown black everyday. I curl my lashes first then apply! It makes my lashes thicker and longer and no clingyicky
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I don't wear a lot of mascara, so I decided to give this a try. It does ok, but I feel like it leaves my lashes feeling brittle and dry. It did stretch my lashes a little, so I'll use it sometimes, but I won't be repurchasing.

I read several positive reviews so I thought Id give this a try. I hated the 2000 calorie Max and dont love this either. It worked to lengthen my lower lashes but did nothing special for the top. I guess I will use the brush from my telescopic mascara again and use it up. I like the formula of this but the telescopic brush seems to b the only brush to give me length and definition. I think I can find something better or go back to L'Oreal telescopic....just not impressed...

i was about to go to the store to buy the diorshow mascara but i decided to try and find something less pricy and boy did i find something that i love. this mascara is perfect i have the smalllest, shortest lashes that i have ever seen on anyone and this product works great you can make it look natural or false eyelash look, i love and for the price ($5) i don't think i'm ever buying another expensive mascara in my life

This mascara is on the dry side, which is one of the things I really like about it-I don't feel the need to wipe excess product of the brush when it's new. But it only lasts me a few weeks since it is so dry-not sure if it's worth the money. It works great the first few weeks through- great lengthening, no clumps.

I have sparse asian lashes that just fall straight down regardless if you curl them. This mascara works just as well, if not better, than Dior's lengthening mascara. I see noticeable length (could be better) but it's cost friendly, non smudging, and also gives a good amount of volume. I have re-purchased many times.

The mascara itself is decent but I absolutely hate the way the brush tugs on your lashes- not for me. It downright hurts.

Bought this on sale at Jack's 99 cent store. It is barely worth the money. I liked the color, Navy, but the texture was dry and it took many attempts to coat my lashes. It is not smudgeproof at all! It did not irritate my eyes, so I will give it points for being hypoallergenic.

This wasn't horrible but it certainly was disappointing. It seems to be almost the same as Lash Perfection and Lash Exact, except with a traditional mascara brush. The formula is too thick and dry, and will definitely not last long and will have to be thrown out in a week or two. I'd say this is worse than Lash Perfection/Lash Exact because it leaves little clumps and doesn't separate as well. OK volume, but the overall effect is pretty poor in my opinion. I am tired of these too-dry mascaras and will stick to Definicials and Maybelline Great Lash (which NEVER clumps and perfectly separates my lashes, although it runs).

S&S provides awesome definition, and basically it really does what the name implies it will and never clumps. It is a good natural look mascara. It doesn't give that crunchy feeling some mascaras do. It is a pretty good lengthening mascara and okay in thickening. This really gives an open eye look, it is for me the best of the drugstore mascaras and I have tried nearly all of them.
