I love this mascara. I'm noticing some mixed reviews on it, but I think it just depends on the person and their lashes. This is the mascara I always go to when I'm wanting a dramatic look for my eyes. It lengthens and darkens my lashes dramatically and gives me a great look I am always happy with. Great mascara in my opinion.

Cons:The lengthening wasn't that great. The product says "80% longer lashes" it wasn't any better than any other drug store mascara. I also noticed that it made my lashes clump together. I did use a eyelash comb but it didn't help at all. The mascara also made my eyelashes look "spidery".
Pro: It was really easy to take off the mascara from my eyelashes (I used warm water and a cotton ball). And it didn't smudge or flake at all.

I don't wear mascara due to spending a fortune trying to find a truly waterproof one. So, then I tried falsies (applied myself not from a salon), and they were great but I do rub my eyes now and again and they never lasted more than 12 hours. Got them permed and tinted a month ago and it was ok...nothing special. Can't afford individual lashes so ... Saw "tubing" and got curious recently as my eyelashes are thin, sparse and puny (shame cos I got a hell of a lot of hair on my head and legs!).
So, I bought this one today from Boots as I read alot of these reviews which were so helpful. Smudging is my priority so despite no volume claims I thought I'd try it.
It didn't come in any packaging so these reviews really were needed, thanks everyone! Sales girl said they're changing the packaging so they'll just sell the sticks/tubes of mascara. Saw the new navy/gold Double Extension with serum that I was tempted to get but it didn't say tubes on it so I left it.
To be fair, I've only just put it on half an hour ago and taken it off. Did one eye with primer, then straight away the mascara. Bit dubious as it was quite clumpy. I think if I used a mascara eyelash comb thing it would help. Don't want to wipe wand on tissue cos feel that's a waste and might get fibres from tissue in it.
You must use warm/hot i.e. hotter than your body temperature water to take it off. I suggest soaking a cotton wool pad in hot water under the tap and pressing it on your eye for about four seconds and slowly wiping it down. I find that the tubes came off easily. Not like it might on an advert, with no flakes, but it did come off. I think this is much easier on the delicate skin around your eyes and because there was no residue, my eye was clean and make up free very quickly.
Agreed, volume is lacking and I guess it just "built on nature", rather than the primer which I can see the idea but it was a bit cloggy. However, cos I can feel confident knowing it won't smudge/make me look like a tramp, then I'm happy with it. On a night out would really want a full on lash effect though so for that I'm still going to have to plough through some reviews.

Even with the conditioning side, this is not a mascara for adding volume. However, it truly IS miraculously impervious to smudging so I use it in conjunction with my favorite mascara (Maybelline Volum Express waterproof) on my lower lashes and the lashes at the outer corner of my eyes. Hah! No more raccoon eyes or smudges on my lower lid!! I think this is basically a copycat of higher-end versions but for the price and considering it actually works, I'm a fan. Bonus: no smudging even when you're rinsing it off! Apply warm water and it comes off in tidy little squiggles.

I like this mascara. There are many advantages to using it: easy removal, no smudging or flaking, and it does lengthen your lashes, giving them a fluttery, natural look.
The disadvantages to this mascara are its high price (ELEVEN DOLLARS in the drug store), and it gives little to no volume. Furthermore, it's a two step process, which is a little bit more work than it's worth.
I do like this mascara, and my lashes look nice when I use it, but it's nothing spectacular that I haven't seen before. Ultimately, I might buy again even with the high price because I love the fact that it doesn't smudge or flake. That, to me, is extremely impressive.

I got the l'oreal double extension waterproof (blue one) first, it was my best mascara ever. Then I ran out of it, and I had to get a new one. So I was looking for the waterproof, but they didn't have it anymore. So I thought I could take the carbon black instead. It was the worst mascara ever, it doesn't give length, no voulume, no curling. And I payed 17 euros for it!

Fabulous mascara! Love the fact that there is no need for make-up remover and there is no black residue on my face or my white towels. The key for volume is to apply MANY coats of the white primer. People are always asking me if I have lash extensions ! Slightly pricey for drugstore mascara but well worth it!

I think this is the best mascara ever, and I have always bought
high-end department store mascara (bobbi brown, chanel, lancome). I purchased this by accident when I had lost my mascara at my son's wedding and could only find a drugstore. This is the first mascara that stays on all day without a single smudge... through high heat and humidity, a two-hour sad movie (tears), even the actual wedding (a lot of "happy crying"). The best part is taking it off... two cotton pads, some warm water, hold up to eyes for 30 seconds, wipe and wash my face. No mascara! Not on my pillow or even my white towels! I hope this mascara never gets discontinued!

Does not add that much length as it claims to do. The effects are all very average.
Even though, I really like this cuz it does not smudge AT ALL. While most mascaras give me raccon eyes, I can wear this to the gym completely confident of its hold and wear. It's so easy to remove too. Just bought another one.
