I absolutely love this product. I have very long eyelashes and have a lot of trouble finding a mascara that doesn't clump my eyelashes together. This not only lengthens but it also separates my eyelashes nicely. It also washes off so easily in the shower. I don't think I will ever buy another type of mascara!

I like this a lot. It's not my favourite, but it is a great glossy black, and gave me substantial length and volume. I like that it's a wet formula, but it's a little too heavy for my taste. While its buildable and handles multiple coats pretty well, any curl I've put in my lashes is straightened out by the weight of the product. Happily, it washes off cleanly without any need for remover! So, all in all, a decent back up for my HG.

Whoever said that this worked great on one day but totally sucked on another, was completely right. On a good day, this held my curl decently, gave great length, and didn't clump, flake or smudge. Even when I don't use a lash curler, this gave me really good volume (more volume than Maybelline Colossal). But on a bad day, it clumped and flaked terribly! If you want to layer the mascara, you cannot let the mascara dry in between coats because it will flake and clump like nothing you've seen before. Really wanted to love this, but this mascara is just too inconsistent for me.

This is my HG Mascara and that includes H/E. I don't use a lash curler and this not only separated my lashes but lengthened and curled them. I was so shocked when I looked in the mirror and saw how great they looked.

I have tried many others including Lash Stiletto, Sexy Curves, Voluminous and the ever coveted Lash Blast. This blew them all out of the water. If you can find it, BUY IT. I bought it on rec from the MU Board and was not in the tiniest way disappointed.

Yes, I admit, I was suckered in. The hype surrounding this mascara, especially when it was exclusively available in the UK and inaccessible to little Canadian me, launched me into an obsessive state. I needed to get my hands on it. So when it finally arrived on Canadian shores, I was ready and waiting.




Talk about a major letdown. I paid only $3.99 for this (on sale) and I'm still wishing I could get my money back. It's too wet, and the brush is a mess - the spoon shape doesn't work for me and it just distributes the mascara in clumps. Do I look like I'm wearing falsies? Absolutely. The knotted up, stretched out, dying kind of falsies that you should have thrown out instead of desperately trying to get one last wear out of.... No. This mascara is not good. Back to Full N Soft, Lash Exact and Voluminous I go.

I like this mascara, No clumps/smears. The brush is unique and flexible. It didn't work as much for me cuz I got short asian lashes. If you got medium/long lashes, you'll love this mascara

So, this mascara is basically Maybelline Great Lash's formula with a new bottle and brush. The formula is wet and messy, and the brush is awkward. I thought having a "spoon" shaped brush was a good idea until I saw it. The bristles are too long and too short in all the wrong places. I have very short, thin lashes so whenever I used this, the mascara would get all over my eyelid and make a huge mess. OK volume, not so much length. Doesn't smudge too much, and removes easily due to how wet the formula is. Still, there are better mascaras out there that are around the same price. I don't understand why Maybelline insists on making mascaras that have the same disgusting, wet formula, so I won't be repuchasing any mascaras from Maybelline anymore.

I don't have eyelashes, so anytime a product gives me some, it's a big deal. I regret to say this product didn't do that for me. Sometimes I wonder if companies purposely do things, like take away a perfectly HG product. Then create a bunch of new products that all have the same name but a different color on the band, making it impossible for someone with ADD (like me) to take the time to find out what the difference is between XXL Pro Daddy Longlegs and XXl Pro Baby Daddy Longlegs.

The Falsies didn't work for me, even after trying different techniques to apply it. My lashes became clumpy with no length. The packaging colors were pretty retro, the Fuschia and Teal took me back to Crayola days. Don't get me wrong, I love alot of Maybelline Mascaras, like Lash Discovery, but what I'm really trying to say is, bring back Lash Stylist already. I miss it. =(

This mascara dosen't clump or flake like the other maybelline mascaras do.This is way better that the lash stilleto, which wasn't all that. I like the brush design. It's a curved spoon like brush.So far it is a good mascara.
