This mascara is one of those weird products that work for me, but don't really meet any of the descriptions on the packaging. It's supposed to be volumizing and uplifting and attention-attracting, which it really isn't. But it's a nice workplace mascara. It doesn't clump too badly, and it makes my lashes look fuller, while still seeming natural.

For casual functions, it's a solid mascara, but it's not really dramatic enough to justify the name.

I have always had nice long eyelashes until I bought this product on XMAS EVE, I started using it on top lashes ONLY and used my other brand on bottom lashes because I like the brush better. The VERY next day half the lashes on one eye were gone and now one eye they are completely gone and almost on the other ( my bottom ones are totally fine.). I am 42 years old and never thought I would have to be wearing fake eyelashes! What's interesting to me is that on the website when youn click on ingridents it says not available. Obviously
I had some sort of chemical reaction and would like to know what ingriedents caused this.
The only reason I chose to buy this brand was because I had a coupon, that's what I get for being cheap!

I like this mascara even though it's not the best I've ever tried and I felt a little disappointed in the beginning. It does add volume and blackness to your lashes, but you would need a lash curler to emphatize the effect and there's too much product on the brush. I wouldn't buy it again just because I prefer other products of the same brand, but it isn't bad at all anyway!

This is the best mascara I've ever tried. It coats really well and the curved brush gives a good lift. It can clump up a bit sometimes but an eyelash brush can fix that. I've tried other mascaras that say they are clump free with collagen but I don't find that those types of mascaras really coat the eyelash enough. They seem a bit wimpy but this mascara keeps my eyelashes separated while still getting enough product on them.

So far, I'm happy with this mascara. It added a little bit of length and stayed put, and it's not too dark a black for me. It gave a bit of lasting curl. Believeable and didn't irritate my eyes, and that's all I need from a mascara. This does make your lashes stick together sometimes, so I have reduced my rating to a 3.

This is my fave mascara. I think its important to note that this mascara is pretty wet when you first buy it. That might make it harder to work with. give it a WEEK! seriously. It gets a bit thicker and then it is AMAZING. Goes on so easy - doesn't get clumpy - never flakes and makes my short semi-thick lashes so THICK and lush and long and curly. I especially love the curl effect. I don't ever have to use an eye lash curler. I hope they never DC this!

I LOVE this mascara! My eyelashes are naturally long and I've always used Maybelline great lash, but my friend's lashes looked amazing and long and she told me to try this. It's awesome! The brush is curved so it really helps get all of your lashes curled and bigger. I started out only using one coat and it looked great, and recently I tried 2 and it really makes my lashes stand out! I definitely recommend :)

I have naturally long dark lashes with a decent natural curl. I'm really not hard to please when it comes to mascara. I've never met one I REALLY didn't like...until now. I'm actually annoyed with this mascara. First of all, the brush is curved and way too short. Picture a very thick, curved brush that only covers half your eye. And note: I do not have particularly wide or big eyes. You then have to try to get the inner half of your lashes with that curved tip, which has that stupid blob of product on the tip. Or you could put at an angle and try that, which works wonderfully with a straight brush, but not this one. The brush is so thick that you wind up bumping it against the inner part of your brow bone no matter how hard you try. The other thing is that the brush somehow applies globs of mascara at the base of my lashes, leaving little black lines on my upper lid. That has never, EVER happened with any mascara formula or any other brush in my life. Add to all this difficulty in application, and you get a formula that doesn't volumize in the least, doesn't curl at all, and actually subtracts definition I have naturally. I don't just not like this mascara, I actually DISLIKE it in a very personal and resentful way.

At first I didn't like this because it made my eyelashes straight and it was too thin and didn't volumize. So I didn't use it for a month or so. I decided to try it again and this time I put effort in making it work. I put on one coat let it dry , another coat and on. I put around 4 coats. My eyelashes were for sure lengthened and not so much volume but its still some. I have kinda short lashes and straight ! ergh . As for the curl , I curled my eyelashes before I put it on , after I applied it there was still a little curl , it kinda came out but my eyelashes weren't super straight. So the holding a curl is OKAY. All together this mascara is good. Don't know if I would but it again but it gives length , not so much volume and holds SOME curl.

I wanted to love this mascara because of it's great price, but alas there were no volumizing, lengthening, or curling effects.

*Big, curved brush gives great coverage corner to corner
*Doesn't leave lashes crunchy or stiff

*Left my lashes WET, droopy, and thin
