This product is very wet and doesn't distribute very evenly. I quit mascara about a month ago (except for nighttime) and I thought this would be a good, more natural looking substitute. It works OK, but I will be trying something different when I finish this.

I will say that this product does not damage my lashes as much as regular mascara (duh)

Tried to use as a brow gel. It was very wet and never held them in place. It also would get slightly flaky and leave a white residue.

I bought this with the intention of using it on my brows. It does not hold them in place! It goes on looking wet and it doesn't do much. It doesn't leave my brows hard, but it doesn't hold them either. I also tried this on my lashes, but it just makes them droop... The brush also applies WAY too much product on my brows.. Will not be repurchasing.

Yuck. It's not terrible but it's not good. Very thin and watery. Don't like the wand at all. I previously had the E.L.F. clear mascara, which was nice, but I felt like trying something new for fun? I felt like that product ran out very quickly—not a lot of product. Maybelinne's looked nice and full. But now I realize that it's just not as tacky and thick. I will use this until it runs out because it's not horrible and I don't want to waste it. I use it on my brows now. Will no repurchase. Beware. :)

on the 2nd tube.I threw away the first tube because i tried it a few times and didnt like it(takes too long to dry&clumps lashes together too and it was like more 3 months,hardly finished 10% of the product).
2nd tube :I wanted to see if i can use it as eyebrow gel ,but it doesnt do a good job either.Doesnt hold eyebrows in place well

I bought this for the sole purpose of something to keep my eyebrows in place. I've never used this on my eyelashes, because I know it would just weigh them down yet and not add anything to my lashes. As for an eyebrow gel, I'm not very impressed. My eyebrows aren't unruly or even hard to tame at all, yet this mascara doesn't do a great job at sculpting them. My eyebrows look like its as if there is nothing there, which is a bummer. I guess its too wet and does not have enough holding power. On the bright side, its cheap and will last a while. Although, I wish it would finish already so I can get another eyebrow gel I might like better.

Absolute fave ! The only thing that really keeps my waterproof mascara from flaking every where on my face, I just wait for my mascara to be completely dry and put a thin layer on them and I'm ready to face the day ;) sometimes when I really want to have my eyebrows set in place I'll brush a little bit of the clear mascara on them, it's really good for that as well

I've never used this for my lashes. I use it to keep my brows in place and it does an excellent job! High end brow gels go for $15+ but this is certainly cheaper and does the same.

I just bought my tenth one of these, I probably go through 1 a year on average. It's Very YMMV though.

I think it's an excellent product and I have been using it for years.

I use this for 2 things.

1. A brow gel. It is my HG brow gel. It's wet for a few minutes, and take a little bit to dry so it is the LAST step in my makeup application routine, definitely something you apply AFTER powder. It being wet for a few minutes gives me some time to brush and straighten anything that might not being laying quite right. It's not a stiff gel when it dries. It's flexable. Which is great for me since I have had a lot of issues with gels drying and becoming too stiff than my hairs break.

2. I like this as a clear eye lash primer. I put this one first, and then I apply my mascara. I don't wait for it to dry. In my opinion, it seems to provide a layer of protection to my lashes. My hair has a tendency to dry out and break with mascara alone and this gives it a base that seems to protect it. I don't think it does anything to enhance the mascara though. I switched from Maybelline great lash, to Full and soft, and this clear gel works great with both.

I have used this on it's own for lashes. I think it is water resistant (it doesn't claim to be) but certainly not water proof. I don't curl my lashes so I haven't tested if It holds a curl. It's a clear gel so it's not a "natural" looking mascara, because it doesn't have anything in it to enhance lashes. It is good if you need to brush through your lashes and have extra hold. you can do things like mix this product in an eyeshadow and brush it through lashes or brows for color and hold.

this mascara does nothing for me except make my lashes look wet! I was hoping for a natural looking mascara that doesn't smudge (I'm a student and not allowed to wear make up to school) but my hopes were dashed. great concept maybelline, but bad product!
