My sister and I both tried this and while I had an initial period of being pretty happy with it, I ended up returning it to Ulta. I'm admittedly a mascara addict and I like to try everything I come across. But I am picky. My favorite type of mascara is a volumizing one with the ability to hold a curl. My lashes are already long but I like a thick, lush effect.


This has a beautiful, rich black color without any of the grey tinge that I see in many mascaras. It deposits a lot of color and product in only a few coats. I didn't have to sit there and endlessly try to build the formula up. My lashes looked very dense, although slightly pieced together or clumpy. That definitely reminded me of a doll-eye appearance. It had an odd feeling though after it dried... my lashes felt more waxy and pliant than I've ever felt in a mascara. That what ultimately started to bother me. If I accidentally touched my lashes throughout the day adjusting my contacts (or something along those lines) the lashes would immediately clump together and then wilt. It really didn't hold a curl well either.


I kept using this off and on for a few weeks but now that it's become hot this formula is just not working. It has a melting effect: wilting, smudging, and so forth.

On a plus side though, I never noticed any flaking whatsoever. The color was great, and you can't beat the price. It was better than many I've tried and while I wouldn't purchase again I do think it deserves 3 lippies.

I purchased NYX Doll eye mascara in the Long Lash formula. I'll admit it was the cute name that sold me on it. Unfortunately I found this mascara to be quite dry. Now it could just be the tube that I got was drying out already. If this is how this formula is supposed to be I would not repurchase as it does nothing for my lashes but just out of curiousity I may try another tube in the future.

This mascara is just ok to me. I love the brush to get those bottom lashes though, it's perfect for that. It just dries out really fast, and I have nothing really great to say about it.

All around awesome stuff. Dark, glossy, doesn't smudge or flake and lasts 12 hours without getting itchy. Buildable volume and gives beautiful length. Really affordable ($9) at Ulta. Washes off cleanly - more in pieces that in a runny mess - without need for an eye makeup remover. Even with the great reviews here, this turned out to be a terrific surprise I'm adding to my list of staples.

I'm on my second tube of this and have mixed feelings. It's cheap, and doesn't flake off, smudge, or irritate my eyes. Sometimes I love it - it lengthens without looking spidery. Other days, it's impossible to apply and clumps get everywhere. It's only about $7, and I feel I get that much out of it, I just wish it was more reliable.

Generally, this is a great lengthening mascara for the price. Thicker lashes would be nice, but honestly I think this is a great mascara for spring/summer since it gives a nice, neutral clean look. I love the unique shape of this brush, it really gets all your lashes within 1-2 coats. And the color is super black, which I love. I just wish it could hold a curl better and that it was available at a drugstore, but I'll definitely repurchase if I'm making a haul at cherryculture.com since its only $7 there.

This is actually a very good lengthening mascara. It does what it says: it gives you long lashes, and it does separate them. It doesn´t do much for volume, which i like because sometimes i just want that sweet and innocent look instead of the sexiness of full lashes. it doesnt really get clumpy after a couple months of use, which is great.
the wand may look like it has a funky design, but honestly, it's the best one i have ever used, because the shape allows you to reach all your lashes with only one swipe, without getting mascara all over your lids and your carefully made eye makeup.
the only problem i see is that it doesnt hold up a curl, its probably a bit heavy so the curl of your lashes will eventually come down. other than that, it's perfect.

great mascara.. I usually use diorshow... and recently started using smoky eyes by make up forever. Although my first love was anna sui mascara, I can no longer find that anywhere so this is actually the next best thing..actually pretty darn close to the same thing... I will no longer be buying my usual diorshow or any other expensive mascara.. I feel like I've tried them all.. for me this makes my lashes very long and does not smudge. I did read on here that the mascara dries up quickly but I've only had mine for a week so it's too soon to tell.. in any case.. for now.. love love love it!

I love this mascara! It is reallllyyy cheap and for the price it does a real nice job. The only con for me is that you can only buy this online.

Good price (Less than $8 at ULTA), nice product and actually provides a lot of length without clumping, smudging or flaking. I change my mascara every 2-3 months so I don't like to spend a lot of money on it! This is a well priced product that does what it says. Is it a miracle worker? No. Is it a good mascara that provides length (and some volume) without a lot of hassle? Yes!
