I would buy again if they come out with a waterproof version, which I usually tend to like with Maybelline's mascaras. First- there is waaay too much product on the brush! I find it easier to work with if I wipe the wand with a tissue first. Also after awhile when it starts to dry out a bit, I'm sure it will become better.
I do like the brush, it works well to get to the base of your lashes.

Don't do it. I know it is tempting - mascara's - good ones are so hard to find. But - the hype is just that! Bought it with a free coupon at CVS and ONE USE was all I needed
to know this mascara was a mess. Slick, messy and horrid I just threw it away. Stay with Lash Blast or Lancome. Dismal the lack of really good mascaras.

Horrid....thin spider eyelashes is what I got. This is the fifth drug store mascara that does not deliver. I have to say you get what you pay for. I will spend the money on Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill..... well worth it. Best mascara yet drug store or high end.

My opinion has changed quite a bit since I first wrote a review on this.
I like this mascara, but it does get clumpy for me now...

It gives me a lot of length and some nice lift. It doesn't give much of any volume. As for the clumpyness, it isn't entirely a spider-lash thing going on, but getting kinda close. I am able to brush it out mostly though.

After experimenting with it, I find that wiping off the brush really helps.
It stops the clumping and gives more volume.

Overall I think it's a pretty decent mascara. Not sure if I'd buy it again though

I know that mascara preferences vary from person to person, but when you claim to give a "false eyelash effect" you had better deliver! Okay, for a DS product at around $6, it should at least meet me half-way! It took FOREVER to properly coat my lashes and when I did, my lashes were limp! Very little color and very little glam. I immediately returned this to CVS and the cashier gave me a knowing nod!Okay, I know I'm being dramatic, but I at least I offer drama, unlike the mascara! Okay, I'm over my nonsense. Teehee. All in all, at $6, it's worth a go, if you're curious. **BTW, if you can, purchase ALL of your DS items from CVS, as they have a 30 day, with receipt, "no questions asked" return policy -- SWEET!!!**

I only just recently heard about this mascara after seeing a YouTube beauty guru review it. After seeing the review, I rushed out to get it, and I'm not disappointed. I love this mascara because it really does make my lashes look long, and like I'm wearing fake lashes. My lashes are normally straight, short, and point downward. I think curling your lashes after putting the mascara on makes a BIG difference. My lashes look like false ones after I put this on if I curl them afterward. This mascara doesn't smudge or flake after wearing it all day, which is hard to find in a mascara. This is the best mascara I have found in a while, and I highly recommend it!

NOT impressed! I bought this yesterday, still looking for my HG mascara and this will not be it. I don't even think I will keep this around as a spare tube of mascara and just throw it in the garbage. Got absolutely no volume and barely any lenghth (and I don't have small or sparse eyelashes, not long and thick either). It's pretty much worthless. I don't know how many coats I layered on, but after several I gave up. I think Colossal Volum is much better and I don't even use that anymore. The one good thing about it is that it doesn't clump. Despite the numerous coats I piled on, it did not clump at all or make my lashes look like spiders.

This was a total waste of money for me. I have very long but straight lashes and this pulls the curl I work so hard to achieve right out. I gave it five tries and now it's going in the garbage. I also found the want awkward.

I am Asian and us, Asians, have short&straight lashes. This is really good for separating and kinda lengthening.This kinda give the illusion of falsies but downside is that it doesn't hold the curl at all. I curled my lashes and put this on and my eyelashes go straight down. I let it dry and re-curled it but my eyelashes are still looking at the ground. This might be really good for those who have originally curled lashes. I don't really like the packaging tho and in my opinion, it looks like a cheapo.

I loved the Colossal mascara, so I was looking forward to trying this. I am greatly disappointed. The formula does NOT make my lashes look anything close to falsies, and the brush is CRAP! I don't care for it because of the brush alone. I just keep reaching for my Voluminous carbon black mascara.
