I have no idea why this gets such bad reviews. If you want Dior Show, then use Dior Show. If you want a mascara that gives you volume, length, and doesn't smudge, smear, flake, or leave you with raccoon eyes, and still look natural, then get this one. It isn't overly dramatic (does not make you look like you have false eyelashes) but I find this to be a great mascara and I like that I don't look like Kim Kardashian when wearing it. (no offense to her! Just not my look.)

This stuff is awesome! Idk why there are so many bad reviews. I bought the full tube and yeah its expensive, but for someone like me who already has long eyelashes, i just need volume. this mascara makes my eyes pop and look open and wide. i like it.... but the price is kinda hard to justify. i love all of bobbi's stuff, i think her foundation for oily skin is the best. so i wanted to try more of her makeup items.

This mascara is okay. It is a little clumpy and dry looking. I do not feel that this is a "party" mascara. This does not give you a wow factor and is just kind of average all the way around. I have tried many mascaras to compare this to and it is just average.

I bought this after watching Bobbi debut this product on QVC. She raved that the brush was unique to this product. Extreme lengthening was promised. But not delivered. The brush is made of rubber and the bristles are rather short. It modestly lengthened my lashes, but the results could hardly be described as extreme. I needed to curl my lashes mid-day because they would "flop". On a positive note, I didn't have a problem with smearing or flaking. But for 24 dollars, I was expecting some impressive results and didn't get them. I will stick to Maybelline The Colossal for quick, easy, Wow! lashes. At 1/3 the price.

Not "extreme" in any sense -- but also not a bad mascara. If you like a more natural look, it's perfect for adding length and definition. Personally, I like the false eyelash effect in a mascara -- so this one did not deliver. Had it claimed to be a natural looking formula, I would have given it more lippies; however, it's advertised to be on the bold side.

Not awful but not good either. It makes my lashes darker and adds some length and volume, but nothing compared to Maybelline's Colossal Volum Express. The formula's sort of runny as well. It's easy to wash off and is ok for an everyday look, if you want just average-looking lashes. Wouldn't recommend, especially for the price.

I first bought this even though it was expensive for trying without having used a sample first. I loved it the first week because it layered so well and did a lot for thickness mainly. I was very surprised that twice, out of no where, I got a feeling something was in my eye. I look in the mirror and my eye is red and watery and my tears are black! It started in my left eye, so of course my right eye then waters and the product is all inside my eyes. I've never experienced this with any other mascara. I've never had a product get in my eyes so freely. Maybe it's the consistency which makes the lashes so thick. The first time was 20 minutes after applying and the second instance was at the end of my day...hours after applying.
I absolutely recommend MUFE Smokey Lash or Dior Show Backstage

Overall I felt just "meh" about this mascara. Got it in my stocking and have been using it since Christmas occasionally. I noticed a few things right off the bat. First, when removing my eye make up at night, it is like a never-ending process. I don't know if the product is more concentrated, or I am using more than usual but it smears all over my face when I am washing it at night.
Secondly, there is no "wow" factor. It makes my eye-lashes thicker and darker but doesn't effect the length at all.
I wouldn't buy this product again, but will continue to use it for an every-day/professional look.

Went on nicely. No clumping. I was so disappointed to have raccoon eyes after a few hours. Not for me.

I first saw this product when I visited the Bobbi Brown counter at my local House of Fraser. The girl who served me had reaaaaaaaaaaaally long eyelashes, and I asked her what mascara she used. She said the Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara and that it was one of the best she'd ever used. After such a strong recommendation, I decided to buy one to try it out for myself - my eyelashes aren't that long but theres a lot of them, so when I wear mascara they look a lot longer than they are. I was pretty excited to try it out!
I actually think that the mascara is quite good once it's on. I didn't have any clumpy lashes, and to be fair they did look quite long. However, if you're planning on wearing this mascara for longer than 10 minutes, make sure you take a small compact mirror with you!! I didn't check my mascara for a good half an hour after first use, and couldn't believe how much it had smudged under my eyes. It is a £17 mascara - not cheap by any means, and yet I've found that the quality of it is worse than my trusty old Max Factor £8.99 mascara. I couldn't believe it! This mascara should also come with a warning of not to wear when it's windy outside - if your eyes have any moisture in them, or you happen to shed a tear, it will leave a black smudge all the way down your face. Beautiful!
I definately wish I'd done my research before I bought this. On the plus side, this mascara is a dream to remove - one swipe with a make up remover pad and it disappears. Great. :)
If you're going to buy this mascara, I definately would recommend putting it on first, then layering different mascaras on top of it to lock in. Be prepared for smudge marks - however not as many as when you wear alone.
