My favourite mascara - I cannot wear falsies and have fairly thin lashes but this mascara makes me look tired and more alert in addition to them being longer/thicker. The tiniest bit clumpy (but nearly every mascara is..) but I just brush off any excess with a Q-tip. It will probably smudge a bit by the end of the day though, but if just for a few hours at school you should be good.
The only downside is that it's kind of hard to get off unless you have a good make-up remover? Like I think I got it all off, then take a shower, and some still smudged so I have to wipe off the edges of my eyes again lol.. doesn't really bug me that much though.

I got this as a birthday sample from Sephora. I really loved using it, super dark color, great brush (favorite mascara wand ever), and love the length and separation of my lashes. I hate the price though, I have not purchased this product (as much as I'd like to) because I can't bring myself to buy the $10 sample of the $23 full size. The product does flake a little and is hard to remove but overall I really like this product, just not the price.

I just cant...get on board with the hype. I have long and thickish (but very blond) lashes and I love me some voluminous Tammy Faye lashes. This mascara didnt do it. Its very black which I liked and its long lasting which I also liked....BUT (and thats a big but) it does almost nothing in terms of volume for my lashes. Its clumpy, doesn't build well and fights with makeup remover. AND...I hate the brush, its super pokey. I put it at the base of my lashes and it stabbed me. OUCH! I can wiggle the brush at the roots of my lashes for all my other mascaras but not this one. I bought the mini at Sephora (I love trying samples before I commit especially to a $23 mascara) and I will not be purchasing the full sized version for all the afore mentioned reasons.My drugstore mascaras perform better than this... Hey Benefit, maybe mascara isnt your thing?

I bought the mini for $10. Used it a couple of times. I was excited to finally try it. As you can see from the rating I gave, I hated it. I don't understand the hype. It didn't do much for length for me. It didn't volumize whatsoever (not sure of it's supposed to). Yes I could tell people "they're real" because my lashes didn't look like falsies! "They're real... real crap." I get better results with drugstore mascaras. I've had people tell me my lashes look good with a DS mascara. I'll be returning this to get my $10+tax back. This is over hyped. Is never pay full price. Two of my friends tried this mascara and neither was impressed. If it worked for you, good. ;)

I'm mixed on this review. Overview: $23 for .3 oz. dark black mascara with a little ball on the end to push up lashes. (Similar to It Cosmetics, Givenchy, etc).
This is an intense black mascara. Adds a decent amount of pigment and length and volume. Does not smudge. Downside, takes a little more eye makeup remover to remove.
Overall, I like this but can't say I'm in love. If u get it in a set or for a great reduced price, well worth it. But I can't say I think it's any better than CoverGirl lash blast. So would repurchase on sale, not full price.

I have to start by saying that I really like this mascara a lot. I love the brush. I don't like the formula when I first open it as I find it a little bit too wet. However, as I start to use it, and it dries out a smidge, I start to love the formula. It makes my lashes long (I have short ones so this is important) and it makes them thick! I love them when I use this mascara.

This product is very thick and contains Beeswax. Which gave me a stye, & i've never had one before. But it was Long lasting i wore it graduation and cried the whole way through, it stayed on til i took it off.

I got a sample size at sephora, and it is HORRIBLE. the formula is very thick and clumpy. It sticks to the brush and is impossible to separate your lashes with. I ended up having to take this mascara off and re-apply my smashbox full exposure.

What a waste of my $... I tried applying this many different ways. it was TOO sticky, clumpy, smudged. The brush is such that you can't really take off most of the excess before applying. I even tried applying with different mascara brushes, same thing. This was a big sticky mess at the end of the day! I went running back to my cheaper waterproof drugstore brand.

I have long eyelashes so I was looking for a high impact mascara that would basically give me volume. I was talked into buying it by the sales lady at the Utrecht Sephora at the time when they'd just released it and it was all the rage in town. I took it home and realised-No volume! It does separate your eyelashes and make them look super long but that is not what I wanted from a mascara and like I said, this one gives very little volume. Meh.
Formula-I tend to have a problem with most mascara formulas(too clumpy, tend to flake, in a week I'm convinced they smell strange-that sort of thing) but not with this one. Goes on like a dream and stays that way till you want to take it off.
