This is my favorite mascara ever!! I have used this for about 10 years, and tried others in that time also, but I always go back to my beloved S-T-R-E-T-C-H, there is just not another one out there to beat this. It does exactley what it says it stretches those lashes perfectly, no clumping no lashes sticking together just gorgeous eye fluttering lashes.

For some bizarre reason I keep straying away from this mascara, but always end up coming back to it! I have used it for probably two years off and on. But obviously I have some deep seeded belief that there is something out there that will also add volume and so I keep wandering off into the mascara abyss. Well, ladies (or at least those of you with contacts) this is one of the absolute best I have found. High end, low end, middle of the road - nothing provides me all day coverage without smudging or irritating my eyes like this does. Nothing...

I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I can cover my lashes in one coat, not have to use my mascara comb to separate and not much goop on the end of the wand. The wand itself looks like most others so my guess is in the formula. It hardly specks and that's great for a non-WP mascara for a contact lens wearer. I've used it for 3 weeks and would definitely buy again.
***UPDATE: I have had this mascara for 3 months and it started to dry up @ 2 wks ago. I usually use for 4 months before discarding. It has started to speck especially when taking it off with baby oil. Disappointed enough to know that I will not repurchase and am changing my rating from 4 to 3.

Another winner from Max Factor, an affordable mascara with great results! Stretch mascara really does lengthen my lashes, as it promises to do. And it does so without clumping or smudging. And as with all the other Max Factor mascaras, it has an absolutely fantastic staying power. The only downside is (like with every other mascara I've tried), that it doesn't hold my curl very well =(

its an ok mascara. can get clumpy looking if you dont apply carefully or with thin applications. but it does give length and separates. but i can get the same quality and look with cheaper mascaras.

This is a good lasting mascara for me, at the end of the day there are no flakes under my eyes, which is good. This color is nice, and really helps to define my lashes. I would repurchase this in the future.
UPDATE: I recently began studying up on animal testing, and I found out that Max Factor tests on animals, so I will not be repurchasing ever again.

This mascara is pretty good. It makes my lashes longer, thicker, and darker when I have it on BUT it's so hard to apply. I don't like the brush. It's really stiff and I have a hard time not getting too much mascara all gooped up onto the end of the wand. Maybelline's Full and Soft is so much better. The packaging is really cute though. I would repurchase only if I couldn't find Full and Soft.

After using Yves St. Laurent's Faux Cils for quite some time, I have gone back to this old favorite. Even though I love YSL's, I can no longer stomach its $24 price tag - this is certainly a reasonable facsimile!

I am still in my ever-ending quest for the perfect mascara. As of yet, I don't believe there is one. I've tried every new mascara on the market as they become available including this one, and I'm just not a happy camper. It's O.K. but not what I would call a "Keeper". The coverage is fair (if you use two coats), and it doesn't lengthen your lashes at all. At least it doesn't smudge.

Can you say "Holy Grail of all mascaras"!? FINALLY a mascara that does it all; it lengthens, it separates, it builds volume, and it also has the missing link that I've searched for all of my life - NO SMUDGING, NO FLECKING OFF, NO SMEARING!!! YEAH! This stuff wears JUST PERFECTLY all day long; in the heat, in the humididty, and doesn't budge after tears, (and btw, I don't use the waterproof formula either). But then it comes off so completely and easily with a little soap and water. And I swear, it really has seemed to help to condition my lashes also - after using it for several weeks, I've noticed MUCH LESS lash shedding/breaking than when I used other brands. Also I have VERY sensitive eyes and this stuff doesn't irritate them at all - I don't even know that I have it on. Honestly, my biggest "mascara fear" is that they will stop making it - gasp - perish the thought! I have never used one (high end or low end) that I truly loved until now.

Pretty good at making lashes longer and just ok on the thickening, but this doesn't claim to do that. Got this in the deep blue which reminds me of the colored French mascaras by Bourjois I used to buy in Paris. I don't know if I would buy again, but overall, not a bad product, though I have used better ones.

Love it, this is my everyday won't leave the house without wearing it mascara. Washes off very easily, and doesn't run during the day (even w/ heavy duty eye cream).

I've actually had this for awhile, but I just recently realized how good it really is. The trick is to wipe down the wand until there's like nothing left, swipe over lashes, dip into tube, then swipe and roll on lashes again. I did this today, and omigosh, it looked perfect. No clumping whatsoever, my lashes looked darker and fuller, and still very natural. Love it.

This is a Great on the go mascara.This never irritates the eyes.The stretch and seperat quality is True and is wonderful.

I actually have this mascara on right now...very good for a "natural" look. I ended up buying it when I was on vacation because I'd forgotten my usual and it was 2 for 1 in the store. The strange thing is though is that I think that the quality of this mascara varies by tube...the first tube really sucked. The mascara clumped and left little mascara balls under my eyes. However, after I tossed it out, I opened the second tube which works fairly well---strange.
Based on the second tube, this mascara's formula is fairly thick and prone to little clumps. It smells fairly strongly of alcohol or...wax?, but it's easy to wash off and doesn't smudge (too much) once it dries. Since my eyelashes tend to lose curl quick, I wasn't surprised that my lashes straightened throughout the day, but it did ok. Separating and lengthening effects are fairly good, as the name goes, but not overly dramatic. Be sure to wipe off the top clump of mascara on the brush before you use it, and to cap it quickly...this mascara seems to dry out fast.

not of a good mascara.I hate the brush it makes it hard to apply.It doesnt plump my lashes, and it clumps really badly.Just another waste of money of a drugstore brand.

This is my favorite mascara right now. I have very short eyelashes and this one really "stretches" them out and lengthens them. It's also pretty good at keeping my lashes separated instead of clumping together - I'm not sure how this happens because the brush doesn't look particularly fancy or dynamic in any way, but it works for me! I wear contacts and it doesn't bother my eyes. It doesn't smudge on me either. It comes off easily with my Cetaphil cleanser at night - no red, irritated eyes or raccoon eyes. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something to lengthen her lashes.

Okay. So, L'Oreal's Lash Out used to be my HG, but something changed. It ended up being too goopy for me. So, I picked this up one day at Wal-Mart. It is the absolute best. It lengthens my lashes unbelievably. Also, the way it separates them makes them fan out beautifully. This is a definite repurchase.

This stuff has some staying power! I also like the way it does not clump on my lashes, although it did at first for about a week. It truly says what it does, stretch and separate. This a very good mascara for the price.

This mascara comes in a huge tube,it looked scary at first,this is the first mascara in my entire life.The effect was fine,lengthing was great,separating was wonderful,volumnizing need some technique,but it smudged easily.
