I really did not enjoy this mascara. I was looking forward to using it and kept it in my backups drawer until I used up an old mascara, and when I finally opened it, it wasn't what I expected. The brush is big, which I like but it still doesn't seem to reach all my lashes. My lashes are blonde, so the tiniest lash that gets missed sticks out among all the mascara coated lashes.

I think I got it at Target for around $6, which isn't bad, and I don't know if the "grow" effect claims to actually grow better lashes or make your lashes appear longer and bigger with just the product on, but either claim wasn't true. I saw no difference, and if anything, this was a mascara I would save if I wanted natural lashes. But I don't want natural lashes, I want huge, voluminous, long lashes and this mascara didn't give that to me. It'll get some love as I'll pass it over to my mom, who isn't picky about mascara, but for any makeup junkies and mascara lovers, pass on this one.

Pretty good, did not make lashes grow though. Brush is very big and not good for coating outer lashes

I bought this product on the clearance shelf at a large major discount store. I was looking for mascara that was not falsies or too expensive. My mascara does notsay waterproof but it holds up well. I live in a humid environment and it can get muggy here. I have been using this for the past two weeks and it seems that my lashes are getting longer. I cant say for sure b/c I have a skin regime that also encompasses putting castor oil on my lashes at night and I don't wear makeup everyday giving my skin a rest. The wand is big, but taking your time will do wonders. The mascara can get clumpy but only one good application should really do the trick. I will admit I have long lashes and this product makes them pop. I would buy again. I bought the Noir Black.

I bought this mascara 3 days ago and I am not satisfied at all. The brush is way too big, and you can't apply a single coat without getting clumps all over. It is really hard to apply without making a mess . Really deceiving product, do not ever buy this mascara.

I found this product on clearance at a local drugstore, and was pretty excited to try something new. I bought the waterproof kind in 823 blackened brown. My first impression was good, I liked that the brush was very full, and that I had an easy time getting the lashes at the corners of my eyes coated. I am a redhead, so I usually buy brown mascara over black. I liked the shade and felt that it was not too dark or light. After a few hours it all went wrong. I purchased the waterproof kind for a reason, however after about 4 hours of wear, I looked in the mirror and had brown smudges all under my eyes. Being waterproof, it was really hard to wash off of my skin. In addition to smudging, it also flaked off. I wanted to like is mascara, but I was pretty let down by the quality. I have contacted Revlon about this, and after a week, I still haven't heard anything. I will not be repurchasing this product.

I use this in conjunction with ColorStay Overtime.
This gives the volume/oomph - to the Overtime's length and longwear.
t
Is it perfect - no by any means but then L'Oreal discontinued my HG years ago so just trying to duplicate its effect is hard.

The combo will be my go to until I can find a new HG.

For a drug store mascara, I found this a bit over priced at 10/11. The brush is quite long, so it's hard to get right into the corner lashes. I find to build this mascara without clumps, you need to do one layer, let it dry, then do another layer. The key selling point of this mascara is growth... I haven't seen my lashes grow because of this product, and I doubt they will.
This is a mascara that will be useful to people who have thicker fuller lashes, because if your lashes are a bit sparse the brush will do nothing but over load you lashes. It's ok for now, but I won't be buying it again.

Edit:
I love this mascara... I added an extra lippie! I didn't use this mascara for weeks, then thought I better finish it, so I started using it, then fell in love. All the above stands, but when I have it on (I've been using castor oil to thicken my lashes) my lashes look beautiful, full and fabulous.

ive tried many mascaras and i always come back to this one. im not sure if it helps my eyelashes grow because my eyelashes are naturally long but i feel like it helps keep them healthy. ive never had any problems with it clumping. it looks fine by itself or you can use a volumizing mascara too. overall i like it and would definitely buy it again

Clump City. It made my 5 far spread out lashes clump together (which I didn't even know was possible). The goopy formula did nothing for my lashes and the massive wand didn't help either. The price is decent but perhaps I should have tried the original with the original wand. Heck, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt but in terms of the plumping formula with the tapered wand? Don't bother. It made me look like I had two very distinct lashes on both eyes and flaked.

It makes my eyelashes really long but it easily clumps.
I still recommend it though.
