I hate this mascara and i could never understand why everyone loves it so much. It's watery and the brush is good for nothing. I naturally have long eyelashes, so all i want it something to make them look thick and this does not do the trick. I find, they look thinner and they stick together. I HATE it :(

This mascara was cheap and all, but didn't do much for my lashes at all except it took out the curl. I'm definitely NOT repurchasing.

The. Most. Overrated. Mascara. Ever.
My first mascara, back in eighth grade. Seriously, I don't see what all the hype is about this. All my friends have it, but I don't see what's so special about it. It doesn't lengthen, volumize, or do anything else except clump your lashes together and make them look like tarantula legs. It smudged under my eyes and left me with raccoon eyes by the end of the day, too. Funny story, actually...I was wearing this for the first time at school and back then I didn't wear much makeup, so I didn't bother to do touch-ups. Well when this mascara smudged under my eyes I had no clue. I don't even know how long I walked around with those raccoon eyes. That was probably why so many people were giving me weird looks. I mean, when I got home and finally looked in the mirror, I was like, "HOLY CRAP!!" No, the smudges under my eyes were not subtle smudges that sometimes look good. They were big, black, and bad smudges. Some friends I had for letting me know...haha.

This mascara does amazing things for my lashes which aren't bad to begin with- this makes them look fake! HOWEVER- I can never wear this mascara without serious smudging. Never fails to smudge. Too bad. Of course, I'll give in and try it again another year from now..... with the same results! How hard is it to make it smudgeproof?! Jeez!!

I don't understand why this product is so popular. I'm convinced Maybelline pays beauty professionals to promote it. Every 5 yrs or so, I fall prey to the hype and purchase it, hoping for a miracle. And every time I have the same reaction:
- why do my eyelashes look stumpy and sparse? (b/c my lashes would stick together upon application)
- why does it look like I have two black eyes? (B/c the product flaked off during the day)

Blah. I bought this a few months ago and I've only used it like once or twice. Something about the formula makes my eyes itchy and irritated. It's good if you want natural lashes but for me, I couldn't put on more than 1 coat before it starts to clump. Overall, I'd rather stick with Full N Soft.

The brush is small and easy to use and the colour is just right ... the only thing is the effect isn't great ... no volume or curl just colour ...

Nothing special about this. The brush, to me, is the most important aspect of mascara. Personally, I think black goop is black goop. If the brush isn't right, it's going to clump and turn into a mess.
And the brush is all wrong.

I can't believe only 26% would buy this again!
It seems you either love or hate this mascara. I really like the brush, it is small, making it easy to use, and get into the corners of your eyes. I assume the idea is to make it easy to build up to whatever look you want too. But this isn't the mascara for you if you want a really dramatic look. The formula is good, it gives me great lashes, and isn't clumpy, although I'll often use an eyelash comb with any mascara because I am super fussy about that.I also like that you get a lot of product in the tube and price wise, it really can't be beat. The formula is supposed to be conditioning too, which is good. I never have any problems with this flaking or drying out my lashes, or any lash loss. It is easy to remove with a bit of baby oil.
