This is my go-to mascara; I absolutely LOVE it. The brush is the perfect size to get to the roots of my lashes and it works wonders to lengthen my lashes. It looks completely natural and doesn't clump up. and it doesn't flake or come off throughout the day. It holds a curl very well and people tell me all the time I have beautiful eyelashes, little do they know they're not naturally that way. Without curling or mascara, my eyelashes are short and straight so this mascara gives them a great boost. Lately, I've been using it with the Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express mascara underneath and I've found that I like it even better.

Strengths: What does this mascara do? 1. Lengthen2. No transfer3. Lower lashes 4. Holds curl Lengthen, lengthen, lengthen. It lengthens and separates, to the point where my feeble lashes actually look like they're hittin my eyelids (no exaggeration). This is my current favourite and has overtaken Maybelline Falsies waterproof which was my previous go-to. If you want volume, you will need to put on at least 2-3 coats. I love big lashes so I'm always at 4 but after that, it clumps. This mascara is also the best for lower lashes. Even if this doesn't work for your upper lashes, I recommend trying it and finishing it up with lower lashes. It separates and defines them better than the 50+ low-high end mascaras I have tried. It also somehow seems to make my eyeliner migrate less by some dark magic, I always had problems before this but no more. Another plus about this mascara is that it does not smudge. No raccoon eyes at all even after 8 hrs at work, 1 hr commute then 2 hours at the gym. At most, there are a few small crumbs (fibers) scattered below but it is very minimal and usually does not occur. Can easily brush those away. It also held my curl all day long, on 15+ days in the summer heat. Application: it took me awhile to figure this out, but this mascara is best applied in steady strokes. No wiggling or shaking, just apply it smoothly in one motion. If multiple coats, start with one eye and quickly later atop each other before moving onto the other eye.Weaknesses: 1. Hard to take off2. Sometimes fibers fall into eyes It can be difficult to take off. You need a heavy duty makeup remover, this isn't like other fiber mascaras like Kiss me where the tubes come off easily. And you may lose a couple lashes in the process. Usually this would be killer for any mascara but because I love the effect of this so much, I use loreal lash boosting serum (clear bottle, blue cap, ~$10-13) to strengthen my lashes and now I can continue using this without any problems. As for fibers falling into my eyes, rarely happens but since I wear contacts, I'm much more sensitive to this happening. Despite even this, I use this mascara anyway and blink away the annoyances. That's how good this is.Highly recommended! Give it a try. I love the effect too much such that I'm working with the cons anyways.

This is a really great mascara! My friend tried it out before me and complained that it clumped and weighed down her lashes. I gave in to my urge and bought it; absolutely amazing results on me! I have medium length, straight eyelashes - that definitely need a volume and length boost that HOLDS. This mascara gives me long, lush lashes without that spidery look. After I curl my eyelashes, the curl really holds with this. Length+volume! I love the idea of fiber mascara's, I like to pick out the fibers, I'm just amazed by them haha. This is by far a staple in my makeup drawer. Maybelline, you're wonderful :)

At first I was happy it really gave my llashes length but then I found out it mascara smuges a lot under my eyes and made me became raccoon eyes again... So I am still looking for a mascara that doesn't smudge on me...

I want to review this mascara solely for its layering properties. By itself, I am pleased with the deep black colour but it's a little heavy and obviously doesn't do much for volume. Mediocre silver packaging and decent short-bristle wand. HOWEVER, I use this in conjunction with my HG, Maybelline the Falsies Flared, and it adds tons of length. I apply the Falsies all over, then use the Illegal Length on the tips of my lashes and all over the bottom ones. If I go really crazy, it gets a bit spidery and flaky but otherwise it looks fantastic. The combo of those two mascaras really does look like a natural pair of false lashes. I have tried this with the non-WP and it works well also.

I bought this on a whim since it was on sale for £6.99.I didn't have great expectations for it since mascara is the one thing I really love to splurge on. Diorshow is my absolute favourite. My first impression when opening the cardboard/plastic container was that the mascara felt, and looked, very cheap. The tube is lightweight plastic that doesn't feel very durable. My first application went horribly wrong - I tried to apply it like I do my other mascaras; start at the base and wiggle. Bad move. I instantly had fibers in my eyes and being a contact lense wearer, this was unbearable. I cleaned my eyes and tried again using the same technique. No fibers in my eyes this time, but my lashes were extremely clumpy and the fibers were sticking out in all directions. It looked awful. I wrote it off and put it in my 'box of things I don't use'. I decided to try it again after seeing some good reviews on Youtube and totally changed my application approach. I started about 2mm from the base of my lashes and instead of wiggling, I pulled straight up and out (as lightly as possible). This created the most beautiful length I have ever gotten from any mascara. I wore, and have been wearing, this for around 10 hours per day and I've had no flaking or transferring. It also holds the curl beautifully. My one downside with this mascara is that I don't get any volume with it. I wasn't anticipating much volume, but I figured a little bit would come as standard. Unfortunately this isn't the case. For this reason, I wouldn't repurchase but I'll definately use up the tube since it does give me the most amazing length. I'd recommend this mascara if you have medium length, relatively full lashes. If you have short or long sparse lashes, it's not going to do anything for you.

this is by far, the very best mascara i have ever purchased. firstly, i was drawn in by all the advertising and the packaging. the tube it comes in kind of resembles the maybelline lash stiletto mascara. i personally have never tried lash stiletto, or even fibre mascaras. needless to say, i wasnt exactly sure about what to expect with this mascara.the wand has a fibre bristled applicator, and i definitely like these types of brushes other than the stubbly plastic ones. this wand seperates my eyelashes amazingly well.as far as the formula is concerned, this makes my lashes look three times longer. no joke. i have really short lashes that are extremely sparse and thin. this is definitely my HG mascara. but the thing is, that since this mascara is a lengthening mascara, i always put over a layer of volumizing mascara to give that extra flare and volume. i use cheater by thebalm. i give my lippies to this mascara!

I bought this souly for lengthening as I already have much needed volume. I think that's why so many gave bad reviews. But it is what it is- a Lengthening mascara. I really like the brush- it defines & separates. The formula goes on smooth, nice rich black color- I got blackest black- does not clump up at all on my lashes, & zero flaking which is hard to find. I like to do one coat of illegal length, one coat of lash blast then one more coat of Illegal length again. My lashes look really long, rich in color, opens up my eyes more as if I used a lash curler & lasts fantastically through a 12 hour day. The only thing I don't like( & why I took one lippie off) is that I have to use makeup remover to get it off when I usually just use purity made simple cleanser. Ill try removing with purity mineral oil, hopefully that will get it off without me having to bother with remover then it'll be perfect. I do recommend if your main concern is lengthening the lashes. But it also works if you layer it with a volumizing mascara like I do.

I did not see this mascara adding any extensions to my lashes.I was told that it adds tubes on to your lashes wasn't my experience.It adds a little length but no where near the amount that voluminous mascara does.THIS is just a nice formula is dryer and less messy than voluminous but it's just average and for 11$ I want better than average/

Despite the negative reviews Ive read for this product, I went ahead and purchased one. Blackest Black. It went on perfectly and added a LOT of length, not so much volume tho. It holds up well, 8 hours wearing and no flakes or smears. Its not easy to remove. Cream remover doesn't work fast enough for me, so I use oil remover to reduce the amount of contact with my lids.*IMPORTANT* WHEN APPLYING THIS MASCARA I FIND IT WORKS BEST IF YOU DO SLOW, STEADY PASSES. THREE OR FOUR IS SUFFICIANT FOR ME... JUST PUT IT ON SLOOOOOW.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
