Oh my gosh, this mascara is the worst one I've ever tried. Seriously. I know waterproof mascaras are better at holding a curl and this one is not waterproof ( I think ).

However, this mascara literally makes my eyelashes droop down. My lashes are naturally extremely long. I hate clumpy eyelashes and I don't look for one that elongates my lashes too too much. My eyelashes naturally can hold a curl for at least 10 hours. But when I used this for the first and for the second time, the curl is gone as soon as I apply this crappy mascara. Also, this mascara is clumpy by the second coat. Very. Clumpy.

Yes, I'm on a rant here. But the quality of this mascara is so poor. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. This is not worth a cent. This is definitely going to the trash. (And I just purchased this today)

I am extremely disappointed in this mascara. I expected it to hold my eyelashes up and give it nice curl. It didn't do what I thought it would and was a clumpy mess. The formula is really dry and it does nothing but make my eyelashes stick together. I really wanted to love it but I don't. BTW I have straight eyelashes that aren't curled and I use an eyelash curler. Hopefully the waterproof version will work but I doubt I'll try it since its expensive.

I am a fan of most NYX products, but this is one I didn't like. I purchased the Doll Eye Lengthening mascara and it didn't do much for me. I thought maybe this type would add more product and volume, but this one did not deliver either. I got the same results where it did not add much to what i already have. I like a more full bodied mascara and this does not provide that. While it might work for somebody with sparse lashes (mine are plentiful) or somebody who wants a more natural look (I like a little drama) this just is not for me.
It did however have great staying power, no flaking or smudging. But it also was harder to remove than most non-waterproof mascaras.

I love this stuff! Got it for $9.49 at Target on an impulse and loved it. It provides adequate volume as it promises, and great definition on top of that. There's nothing I don't like about this mascara.

This is suuuper lengthening and non clumpy for being so cheap. I'm a mascara snob and usually vouch for MUFE smoky extravagant, I never use anything that clumps or is hard to get off at the end of the day.. And this is perfect. So good and cheap compared to what I usually wear. It performs exactly the same as the mufe and is 1/3 the price.

I used to love this mascara, but I think the formula has changed. It use to add length and volume, but now its strictly volume, and lashes look stumpy and clumpy. Very disappointed in this product now. A lot of better mascaras out there, for less.

This is a good mascara, doesn't flake, applies well, coats lashes evenly. But it does dry out quickly. The first tube I bought I thought was bad because it was so dry but it still applied okay so I kept using it until it actually was dry-which wasn't very long after I opened it.

The fact that it doesn't flake and wears great throughout a long day will make me repurchase, I wish it didn't dry out so fast though.

I really like this mascara because it's one of the few I've tried that doesn't flake off and give me racoon eyes throughout the day. It separates the lashes well and gives good volume without looking fake or spidery. The only downside I see is that it gets dry very quickly and can become hard to apply because of that. The pros definitely outweigh the cons, though, and I'll keep buying this until I find something better.

This may be my new favorite mascara. It is indeed a dryer formula which I prefer because I hate any clumps in my lashes at all and I find a dryer formula is less likely to cause clumps.
This is not going to give you drama lashes (l'oreal skinny gold tube does that) but on a daily basis I don't care about that. What I look for is something that can give me long, fuller lashes that fan out and don't clump and this does exactly that. No flaking either.

I really like this product. The tube looks nice and is nice to use. The formula is drier than I'm used to, but I like it. I don't have a wet imprint of my lashes under my eye if I blink immediately after application. I LOVE how this mascara makes my lashes look. With just one layer it lifts, separates, and adds probably double the volume and even some length. I've never had a mascara and brush combo that I like better. The wand is short-bristled and hourglass shaped which pulls just the right amount of product out of the tube, without that annoying end blob you get with so many mascaras. It doesn't clump my lashes together like almost every other mascara I've tried does. It really fans them out and thickens them without making them look super fake and spidery. There's no discernible smell. It doesn't run or smear, but it does flake off on me. I've had little chunks of mascara raining down on my undereye all day. That's why I knocked off a lippy. (But I should note that my eyelashes still LOOK great, despite lots of flaking off. It hasn't really WORN off.) I hear from other reviews that the tube dries out quickly...that will be sad if true, but for now, I really, really love this product. And believe me, mascara is my white whale. I've tried tons and tons of them and this one is tied for first place for me.
EDIT: I tried it today with only one coat and NO FLAKING! HG status now.
