I wanted to like this; I'd been hearing great things about the rubber type brushes and how they separate and define. However this is perhaps the worst of the lot.
The short wand is WAY too chunky; why they did this is beyond me as I can't see any benefit from having a wand as wide as a pencil and cap as thick as a hairbrush handle. I gave this an extra point as the short length does allow for more control.
The formula is mediocre and has a bit of a chemical smell. It does lengthen but dries too quickly to build any thickness. I honestly don't see what all the hype is about this mascara and will not repurchase.

I have bought so many different brands of mascara in my life. None of them have given me the results I wanted. Simple needs for me:non clumping, wouldn't dry my eyelashes, would make them really black and make them thick and long. Well, this mascara does the lot. The only thing missing is the glossy effect but hey, now that would be the perfect mascara of all time. I can put this on and it will stay. It really makes lashes look thick and long. I like the container, I like the brush too. No more dry and flaky lashes for me. If this is discontinued - I'll be lost!

I really wanted not to like this product, but I gave in. It is my favorite mascara and my HG. The very black is truelly black. Thickens and lengthens and doesn't clump or smudge. I won't be using anything else anymore.

I've been using Max Factor mascaras for years because they perform for me. If it ain't broke - right? I saw a 2 pack of LB on clearance at Target for $6 - I couldn't pass up the deal. I'm not going to say I'm a complete convert, but this is impressive stuff. First, I LOVE the super fat tube, and the equally fat rubber nubbly applicator. The first time using it was a little tricky - I accidentally poked my eye with the fatty applicator. :-( but the product itself does everything right IMO - amazing color, length, and volume! Holds a curl, too. I actually have to put powder under my eyebrows to keep my lashes from rubbing off mascara, this stuff makes them soooo looooooong! I don't get any flaking during the day and I don't feel like I have crusty stiff lashes like others have said. As long as I wipe excess product off the wand into the tube before applying, I don't get any clumping either. Possibly the best thing about this mascara is how buildable it is. One coat looks nice and polished, but you can really load it on for some drama. Great mascara, and I will definitely be buying more. :-) Really want to try the new pink tube!

Well, I'm kind of 50/50 on this product. While it definitely gives you great volume (not so sure about the lengthening), the solution is a bit gunky and thick, and sometimes my lashes turn out very clumpy. Also, the brush is so thick and big it's hard to get used to it and handle it well. I don't like the smell either... I mean, mascara doesn't smell good in general, but I find that this solution has a stronger smell than the other. However, this mascara is good for when you do smokey eyes and you want to really define your lashes.

I really wanted to love this product but it just doesn't match the hype.
1-the wand is too big to maneuver well and the bristles are too sharp.
2-it takes forever to get the effect you want, if you have short, straight lashes. If you have deepset eyes like me, you'll get a headache for raising your brows that long :S
3-it has a tendency to clump, which means you have to spend more time using the brush to even them out
1-it definitely gives you a nice fringe of lashes, giving you that look of a full set of lashes, rather than a few spikes here and there
2- If you had naturally long and curly lashes, I think this mascara would look phenomenal on you

Overall, it didn't do much for me.

THE BEST MASCARA I'VE EVER USED! I bought this just for the hell of it. I really thought I wasn't gonna like it because usually I hate drugstore mascaras. It turned out to be the best mascara I have ever used! It doesn't flake at all on me, no Panda eyes and It gives me glam eyes i lovee it. My lashes are really short and thin but this stuff makes them look so full, long and curled. Lovee it! I deffinitley reccomend it to everyone!

I think its an okay mascara (leaning more towards good than bad). The brush is nice, and it evenly distributes product onto my lashes without being clumpy. Overall, pretty good, nothing magnificent, and is a little on the costly side for DS mascara ($8 CAD).
