I have noticeable smudging after 4 hours. I don't like the brush. I understand that want the tube to look long, but the brush is too long to use comfortably. The mascara covers well, with good length and definition.

First off, I love the packaging to this product as it reminds me of a stiletto heel. The product itself is alright. I don't hate it, but I don't love it. Coming from someone who loves thick lashes, this is not a stand alone product for me. Don't get me wrong, this mascara DOES do a great job at separating lashes and lengthening, as it's intended to do.

I do use this mascara in my daily routine... I use this as my first coat and then I go in with another mascara to thicken my lashes.

There were a few reasons I didn't like this mascara. For one, i definitely did not add any real length to my natural lashes. I honestly didn't notice any difference at all. It also does nothing for volume, and the mascara itself is just barely noticeable. Not too hard to remove with makeup remover, but the one thing I hated most was how all these little fibers got all over my eyes (and in them!). It really hurt, digging out tiny hair that land in your eye ball :( Overall, a no from me on this mascara.

First, the only mascara I use is the Maybelline Vomune Expess One by one, because it's the only one I find it DOES separate the lashes very well, and it gives a natural effect.
So, pretty much, I dont like "dramatic" mascaras, The falsies by Maybelline,for example, I find it too " fake" - as it's supposed to be anyways- that's not what I'm looking for in a mascara because my lashes are pretty full and long but I want them longer, and not ticker because it looks too much for me.

AT first i didn't liked this one because it was too fake for me, those "fibers" that it gives, are like little dots that get on the tips of the lashes, very fake and odd looking !

But after some days using it I find that the key to use this is only giving 1-2 coats! So pretty much this mascara gives the lenght and separate the lashes very well, but it doesnt give volume.

I dont recommend this for people with only a few and tiny lashes, if you have normal and want to give them definition, this is for you - in my opinion- :)

(I have thin, medium length, straight lashes). I read great reviews here and other places about this mascara, so decided for the relatively cheap price it was worth a go... boy was I wrong. Hardly any of the product actually came out on the wand even with multiple dips/swirls, and so it took a long time to get even a reasonable coat on my lashes. They were not remotely lengthened, and on layering became very clumpy. It didn't provide curl or volume either. Having said that this mascara does seem to work very well on a lot of people, so it is potentially just my lashes that are incompatible with it. None the less, very disappointed :(

I am Asian with thin, sparse, short, black, and straight lashes. I always curl my lashes no matter what, even if I have a curling mascara. I have to use waterproof because the extra waxes of the waterproof formula help seal the curl and keep it lasting. This mascara is very good, does what it says it will do. Lengthens just as well as Lash Stiletto at a cheaper price. I would say it's better than Lash Stiletto. Does not volumize, maybe a tiny bit of volume, but not much. Stays on for about 8 hours without touch up. I would definitely recommend.

I used this mascara for the first time the other day (my cousin had bought one for herself and really liked it so she got one for me to try) and I actually really like it!! My eyelashes looked much longer and much more noticeable! I got loads of compliments from people telling me that my lashes looked really long :D the only problem is that it's hard to get it off :/

This was the worst mascara I have ever used. I could hardly get any of the formula on the wand. It took forever to coat my lashes. I was getting ready for a date & it was so stressful. This cannot possibly have fiber extensions. I am totally unimpressed. Once I finally finished applying, I threw this mascara in the trash. I will totally stick with using my Falsies mascara. What a mistake it was to use this product. Now after reading all the other comments on here, I'm afraid how many lashes I will lose trying to remove this mascara.

Okay, so I've been testing out mascaras for awhile now seeing as I have very watery eyes, and this is definitely one of the better ones.

I used this awhile back and I still have a tube of it because I liked it so much. It stayed on pretty well, I only had a little bit of mascara in the fine lines under my eyes at the end of the night. No big deal.

But what I really liked about this mascara was the length it gave my lashes. If I'd do a few layers of the mascara, my lashes were longer than they'd ever been. My mother immediately noticed a difference. It was pretty amazing.

However, after awhile I started using this with another product (lancome xl lash booster) and that's when I had the problem. My lashes started to get in rough shape when I combined the two frequently. I do believe it was the lash booster that was the problem, but just in case I'd keep an eye out for a bit when you first test out this mascara. Also, it could be a bit difficult to wash off, but that, too, may be because of the other product.

So I guess I'm just trying to say be careful.
Once my lashes heal a bit I'm going to test this mascara by itself again to see if there's a problem. But until then I'm going to lay off it. I'd still use it for nights out or the dramatic effect. No need for falsies here!
