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.

Major disappointment. Some length, but little volume. Didn't hold the curl for me. If you're looking for volume & drama, I would look elsewhere. I would not purchase this again and I'm giving the tube I do have to my stepdaughter.

I just bought this mascara today. I had a difficult time even finding it, which really aggravated me. Well I finally found it at a CVS store. I was so thrilled. Anyway, I got it home and lined my eyes with the classic eyeliner (Maybelline of course), then put the mascara on. I then curled my lashes. I was impressed with the coverage and the softer formula. The bent wand is good for me since that is what works best with my eyes normally. I normally bend most wands if I can. Overall I love this mascara and would buy it again. I do wish they would come out with a brown or black/brown color. It's only available in black where I got it.

LOVE this mascara!!! I bought it on a whim since i usually buy the Collosal which i also love. But this stuff makes my lashes so long and soft!! Will definetly repurchase and i didnt have any problems applying it, i even added a second coat with no issues. Definetly worth a try if you like Maybelline mascaras!

Just bought this product last night. Usually nto a fan of maybelline mascaras because they make my eyes tear up, however, this formula didnt surprisingly. With just two coats of the mascara, i had that falsie baby doll lash effect!!!!! Very impressed since Im usually a MAC zoom lash wearer. Will be heading back to buy in black brown. Currently own blackest black, just fyi.

I really love this mascara! What a surprise to find that it made my lashes soft and pretty and long! Lashes look naturally longer with this and it does not clump. Generally NOT a fan of Maybelline mascaras BUT they got it right with this one. Have already purchased again.

P.S. I purchased the black-brown mascara which I feel looks better on blondes and redheads than black.

I got this product the week it came out for only 3.99 so I had nothing to lose. I don't really have high expectations for washable mascaras but since I loved the normal volume express and I am a mascara junkie I tried this. I apply it to my top lashes with the concave side, just brushing through them lightly (I can't "wiggle" with washable mascaras because they get to goopy and heavy) which gives me nice fluttery lashes, but by no means "false-lash effect." The curl is maintained even on my stubborn, downwards pointing asian lashes. This can create high drama lashes if I layer more, but then I have to curl them after as well as it gets too heavy. I really like this, and will buy again.

Meh...this mascara is just okay. Since I got it so cheap, it's kind of hard to complain too much about it. First time I used it I thought it was horrible beyond belief. My lashes were hard, dry and clumpy. Second time I tried it I found that using the correct side of the brush makes a huge difference. The spoon side has to be the side brushing the lashes (makes me wonder what the other side if for?), it needs to be applied quickly and you can't put on a second coat, so you have to make sure your lashes are completely coated on the first go around. Following these rules I find that this mascara adds somewhat decent length and a little volume. Nothing great and I probably won't repurchase.

Update***Okay I had to come back and give this mascara another lippy. It seems that the more I use it the better I get at applying it. It's not a HG mascara but it has become one of my favorites. Now that I have the hang of using it I find it does give my lashes some great length and nice fullness. I still don't love the way my lashes dry hard and the fact that once it's on it can't be touched up.
