I keep thinking I might find something better than this from the drugstore but I always come back to this. Everything about it is great.

This is my go to mascara over the years. Whenever I run out and cant choose what I want to try next I always reach for this. Its nothing fancy, the package is plain, its black and it makes my lashes look slightly thicker and longer. Its an everyday look. I know it works and its from a brand I trust.

This honestly may have been one of the first mascaras I have ever tried. I feel like my makeup bag has always had a tube of it in it.

It does smudge sometimes if I put it on before my foundation has set.

This mascara is amazing. Everything about it seems simple. The brush is a basic bristle brush, no fancy shape or design, the tube is classic gold and black. It goes on sale for $5 or $6 a lot, cheaper than most others.
It seems so basic, but performs so much better than the vast majority of mascaras that I've tried. It is very easy to apply, and does everything I want. My lashes look long and voluminous, they retain their natural curl, and they stay soft looking, not stiff or crunchy, even with a few coats on. With other products, it usually takes some effort to get the outer corners of my eyes, but this mascara coats those lashes no problem. The formula is not too wet or too dry, and there is no flaking throughout the day.
I bought this once a few years ago, and it was really messy and clumpy, but I must have just bought an unusually bad or old tube. I would recommend taking it back to the store and exchanging it for a new one if you get one like that, because when I tried this again I fell in love with it. It was nothing like the first one I bought.
I will definitely be repurchasing in the future, this has become one of my all time favourites.

Ugly packaging and horrible packaging.
I hate it when people say this is "the best thickening" and the "blackest"
it is none of these things. I have tried three different tubes over the years after reading the rave reviews and EVERY time i am hugely disappointed and have to wash it off.
It is as if they put far too many fibres in this, it literally balls up as i'm putting it on my lashes and i have naturally very good ones. Just horrible.

My go to, I'm broke, mascara. It is what it is - nothing too special but my lashes look long and it's better than other drug store brands.

This is one of the best mascaras I've ever tried, and I have tried many mascaras.
For reference, I have dark but fine lashes which are long and curly. Volume and definition are the main things I look for in a mascara. The formula of this mascara goes on really smooth and coats my lashes evenly from root to tip. Its give great volume and is buildable, making it great for day and night. It also doesn't flatten out curl like some mascaras do.
It comes off really easy and clean too, with just water and facial wash. No gross black residue around my eyes. This works just about as well as Benefit's They're Real, but for a fraction of the price. Love it!
