I had my makeup done professionally on the w/e and the m/u artist explained to me why she thought this was once of the most amazing mascaras (I didn't mention the low low rating on here). She said how this never clumped for her and she didn't believe that any mascara didn't smugde. It's smooth and clean etc. (cheap 2) Now this m/u artist did 5 lots of faces and did an amazing job. the macara didn't clump on any of us.It did smudge on 1 of the ladies upper eyelids though. She put something special along our lower eye lids though so it didn't run there ( god I wish I could remember what that was!). The lashes didn't 'take over' the look. Didn't want to look like a drag queen in the photos.
I already have long lashes so I was happy with it (although I am used to seeing more volume but it would've looked bad in photos I guess) and my sister who has shorter lashes got a couple of extra lashes put on...I guess it looks nice and natural, not over the top. that's why it's numb 1... apparently (though with these low reviews I do wonder where they get their data!)
I almost gave it a 4 but I didn't think it was all that. It was ok. If I was to be in lots of photos 1 day and didn want the long thick lashes I usually aim for I would wear this.
easy to take off too!

I usually don't write many reveiws on here, but since this mascara calls itself "Americas #1 Mascara" (or whatever they say) i had to tell how horrible this mascara is.. The only reason why i gave it 1 lipsticks is because it's dirt cheap. On a good day if there is a sale and you have a coupon you can get it for practically nothing.

This is an ok mascara. Not the best. I think it could be good for an every day kind of thing, when you're running errands or something. I like a more dramatic effect on my lashes, even for every day, so this stuff is not for me.

This mascara is ok. It's not the best I've ever tried and it's not the worst. It does not lengthen and seperate my lashes as much as I would like and so for that reason I don't see any point buying a product (no matter how inexpensive) that doesn't do what you want it to do.

I think this is a decent mascara that is made out to be horrible when it really isn't. It lengthens well and thickens decently. I do find that it flakes and smudges, so I do like the waterproof better. Overall it's not bad though.

Use to use this when I was younger and looked thru some pictures the other day, and boy did my lashes look clumpy and yucky! Would never re purchase!

I know there's a lot of mixed reviews on this stuff, so it works for some and not for others. I've been trying to find my HG mascara for forever and always seem to just come right back to this one and I've been using it off and on for at least 15 years.

I already have really long lashes that are about medium density (not too thick and not too thin). The wand on this thing is small, but perfect for me. I don't end up poking myself in the eye and destroying my entire makeup job having to wipe off what I just messed up. I've tried the higher end mascaras and of all the mascaras and all their claims, this one is the only tried and true one I've found. Just curl my lashes, apply one coat (too many coats of any mascara can make them clumpy) and I'm good to go!

Stay away from this. Like what everyone else says, this is a waste of your money. Clumps and does NOTHING for your lashes.

Horrible mascara. Like everyone else says, doesn't lengthen or thicken. Still sitting in my drawer waiting to be thrown away.

Don't understand the hype about this product. Clumps, does not even lengthen or thicken my lashes. #1 mascara? youve got to be kidding me. worst mascara ive tried ever. doesnt do anything for my lashes except clump them. and definitely expect smudges after five minutes or so. horrible and a waste of five dollars.
