LOVELOVELOVE it. Makes for super dramatic lashes. It does clump but tisueing off or combing through them makes a HUGE diffrence. I'm not sure about flanking as I only use it on my top lashes as I do with every mascara to avoid it.

I bought this Mascara after seeing it featured in some magazines and I was sorley dissapointed in it. When I run it through my lashes, It sort of globs them together and clumps. Don't even get me started on the flaking! Overall, NOT a good Mascara.

This is one of my favorite mascaras. It is inexpensive and works as well as Dior mascara. It creates dramatic lashes. I did not like it the first few times I used it. Once I got the trick of how to use the brush I fell in love with it! My only problem with it, is that it does clump a little.

This is one of the better drug store mascaras that has been introduced in the past couple of years. I really like the spoon brush. If you're patient with it, it gives great results. The formula is really nice, I like that it's drier than Maybelline's Colossal mascara. It doesn't really flake on me, but it can get a little clumpy as the tube starts to dry out. I would definitely repurchase this mascara.

I LOVE THIS MASCARA! Does a great job in lengthening and volumizing! This reminds me alot of my Lancome Hypnotics Drama mascara. It's a little on the wet side but I don't mind.

One of the worst mascara's I've ever used. FLAKE, FLAKE, FLAKE. I would avoid this totally if you're a contact lense wearer.
This was only $5.00 at WM. That should have been my sign to skip it. This does not provide a falsies look as the name would imply. I get a very natural look with this mascara. You can go spider legs with a quickness if you go overboard, which you'll want to, to try and acheive the falsie look. Has to have wet-into-wet application because it flakes even more if you let it dry between coats.I've worn this quite a few times and the flake factor part is just a bummer. Everytime I'd pass a mirror I had to wipe flakes off.
However, I love the 'spoon' brush. I wish I could transfer it to another brand of mascara. I get no transfer of mascara onto my lids with the way the brush is shaped and upon initial application gives a lot of lift and curl assist. The lift and curl don't last long though.
HELLO MAYBELLINE>>>use this brush with some other mascara formulation!! Please ♥
This gets 2 lippies overall only because of the brush shape.

I don't love this product, but I don't completely hate it. I just dislike some elements. It's $20 and that's pretty expensive, but every mascara is the same price, so they're all overpriced. I tried it as soon as I bought it and it was just... not good. At first the brush was really weird and uncomfortable for me. It doesn't fit the shape of my eyes so it's kind of hard to use. However, you do get used to it. But anyway, I used it and it was just really clumpy. So I gave it a few days to age. I would just randomly open it and close it a few times a day just to get some air in there and to let it age a little (a lot of the time, mascara is better when you get some air in it and it's not so new). So I used it 4/5 times since the first time I tried it and it's gotten better because i've gotten used to the brush and also probably because I let it age a little. However, it still isn't good. It still clumps. You can get the false lash effect with this mascara, but you have to apply 3+ coats of mascara and you really have to work your lashes. I find with this mascara that I can get one eye looking almost perfect but the other eye will look horrible and clumpy. I have NO idea why! This happens every time I use this mascara, and it has never happened with any of my other mascaras. A lot of people say it's really hard to remove and that they couldn't get it off for days and things like that, but I find it easy to remove. However, it's hard to get ALL of it off. I use eye makeup cleansing pads (which are designed to remove waterproof mascara, of which this formula is not) and I get a lot off. And then later in the shower I use a cleanser on my eyes and all around my eyes are completely black. There will be huge black rings around my eyes like a panda when I am washing off this mascara in the shower. Even though I already used a cleansing pad. Furthermore, even after using the cleansing pad and cleansing gel, after the shower when my lashes are still slightly wet, I touch them and mascara still comes off onto my finger. So it comes off very easily, but it's very hard to get all of it off, and I only wear one coat.
So basically, I kind of like the wand, but I hate the formula. The wand is weird at first and doesn't fit the shape of my eyes (making it hard to get the inner corners), but it works well at curling your lashes. The packaging is nice and you get a lot of mascara in the bottle. However, I hate the formula. A lot of people complain that the formula is too wet, but I really didn't notice that and I don't have a problem with it. It's just that the formula clumps my lashes. It really does. Maybe it's because it's wet. Who knows.. It's not terrible once you really learn how to use it, but it's not amazing and I always feel nervous about using it if i'm getting ready for school or something because it's really easy to stuff up and I just think that you should not feel nervous about applying your mascara! And every time I use this, I always manage to get mascara on my eyelids, which I never ever do with any other mascara. Perhaps it's the brush, I don't know. I'm going to try to use it because I bought it, but probably only on the weekends when i'm staying home and no one's going to see my eyelashes.

This makes my lashes Xtremely long and full. They are the lashes that everyone notices and are exactly what I wanted.
All my friends noticed! It clumps, but it's nothing that the brush and a little practice can't fix. I recommend applying with the side of the brush, and then combing through with the 'spoon' part.
Sadly, this flakes. Big time. It smudges a little too in less than 3 hours.
This would be PERFECT for a short event where you want your lashes to have the extra black vavoom. I don't recommend it for people with thin lashes because it will clump and look.. awkward.
Take it or leave it:)

Love this! I'm surprised by the negative reviews since this product works so well for me. My lashes are pretty long to begin with so when using this it totally gives me the false effect. But on a more general note, there is minimal clumping and it definitely lengthens without making them look sparse. Would totally buy again

I really dont like this mascara im a fan of long full lashes (specially long) this mascara did nothing for them. the formula was runny and the wand was flimsy I would not recommend this to nobody.
