this was one of the worst mascaras i have tried. although it did make my lashes thicker, it also clumped them together and did not hold a curl. i tried using this with the shiseido mascara base and got a curl to hold, but my lashes still looked chunky and stuck together. i will not be repurchasing this.

Ladies with sensitive skin beware! I just bought this product and my eyes have blown up like I got poison ivy. Which is too bad since it looked pretty good...for about five hours. Then I started noticing that my left eye was swelling and then my right eye...since this is the only new product I used today it has to be the culprit. I ran across the street to get eye makeup remover from Walgreens and took it right off. The swelling is starting to recede but I look like Marty Feldman...not good. Good thing I don't have any meetings today...I'm going to slink out and put some ice packs on my eyes and pray they return to normal. Back to the store it goes.

I constantly buy this mascara over and over, it's simply the best! Although I've also found a few, more pricier ones, they simply don't warrant the extra expenditure.
I use about a million coats of this, usually over a defining mascara as a base to separate my lashes, because I am a bigggg fan of bigggg lashes!
If you haven't tried this, you simply MUST.

This is so goopy and clumps so much. I tried it once and gave it to my friend. It really looked bad on me.

I love this Mascara. I like that it is a wetter mascara. I don't have any problems with it smudging or flaking. Was easy to remove.

I dont like it at all it clumps so bad and also it wears down my eyelashes! Im going back to my FAVORITE ones..CG thick lash OR Almay One Coat Mascara (Thickening) - enough said!

The only good thing I can say about this product is that it can lengthen and add volume to my short lashes, but only if it's applied in a thin coat. Other than that, here are the CONS:
- Clumps extremely easily
- Flakes/smudges upon contact
- 2 coats makes this look like a spidery/gloopy mess
- Very unnatural look

I cannot stress enough that this mascara is not even worth experimenting with. On a bright sunny day, my eyes looked like raccoon eyes within a couple of hours (I didn't even have to rub my eyes for this to occur; I do not have particularly watery eyes either). I would never repurchase this, but I am tempted to see what the waterproof version can do.

This mascara is decent! i would buy it again but in wp, because this doesn't hold a curl unless you do a VERY light coat. However I love how it is easy to remove and creates dramatic length and volume.

I really want to love this mascara, but it is really bad for flaking all over my face before the day is over.
It makes eyelashes look false and thick, but it isn't something I would wear for all day (I only wear it out at night anymore)

I really like this mascara and it may be my favorite drugstore mascara. I would suggest it to anyone!
