This is a very average mascara. I was hoping with the huge rubber brush and the very dark black formula it would be a nice dramatic mascara. It lengthens a bit but nothing special. It does thicken well but it will flake if you apply more than 2 coats.

All in all not a great mascara for my thin lashes. As the day went on the curl dropped out completely.

Not a terrible mascara but Maybelline has much better options out there.

This is by far the best mascara Maybelline has come out with in years, and Maybelline mascara at one point was my favorite drug store brand. This mascara makes my lashes super long, dark, and overall dramatic with only one coat. My only con is even the washable version is a pain to remove, even with Neutrogena eyemake remover. In the last days I have been wearing this mascara I have gotten compliments on my eyelashes from friends, my mother, and people put-and-about. Overall I would repurchase this product.

I've tried Maybelline mascara's before and I was left a little disappointed after, but I saw this and took a chance.
I got the non waterproof kind. I went home and instantly tried it on. The first thing I noticed is how it clumped my lashes together, so I had to use another mascara brush to tame them. It did give me volume and width though. That night I went to take it off. I normally use soap and water because it works well, but when I tried to take this mascara off, it took five or six times to do so. Even then it wasn't fully off. I was really upset because normally it usually takes two-three times to wash off my mascara. But this mascara did not want to come off. After a couple of weeks, I came to realize that this mascara was crap. It did not come off well, my eyelashes looked clumped and gross. I will not buy this product again.

does anybody else think this mascara (in the waterproof formula, specifically) smells like sunscreen?!? I find that it does but i actually kind of like that scent so it doesn't bug me at all:P anyways, I like it :) the packaging is cute, its a pretty big tho (bigger than the maybelline the falsies mascara) It lasts well on my lashes and doesn't rub onto my lids (which are oily), i wish it helped with curl more though because I really do not like the ONLY eyelash curler i have right now. (any suggestions? I'm in the market for a new one) I like it, but I probably won't repurchase because I love to try new things! (i got it for 5.99$ by the way, in Canada)

(Waterproof review)
I was on the fence about trying this mascara after reading the initial reviews on the MUB. I'm so glad I decided to give it a try! This mascara really lengthens my lashes and holds a curl beautifully. It does not clump. The only negative comment I have is that is does not add much volume. This is fine for me because I just love everything else about the mascara. I will definitely add this to my must have list.

This was a very good mascara worth the price cuz i got it on sale for 5$!! :)

Edit: it clumps my lashes together and too bulky of a wand.

The mascara held my curl but gave me sooo many clumps. I only use one coat of mascara and even then it was clump city, looked like a string of beads

I got this recently, and when I tried it on at home, I was actually pleased with the results. I have typical asian-lashes short and sparse. The bristles are hard and firm which separates my lashes quite nicely, but it kind of poked my eye which hurt a lot... Because my lashes are straight I have to curl them. It held the curl quite nicely which is very important to me because that is what makes my lashes actually visible. For the volumizing and lengthening, it didn't do a whole lot. I saw some volume on my third coat (I put on a coat then wait for it to dry and then put on another coat.). My lashes clumped a tiny bit but not to the point where I looked like I had spider-lashes. The lengthening it did not do a whole lot of. But overall, I liked it.

Love it!! Volumizing, holds a curl, and crazy length all in one tube! It's versatile enough to create a natural or dramatic look. The only issue i have is that it's a bit hard to get off but with makeup remover it's not much of a problem. I suggest this to anyone looking for a new HG mascara!

I too was excited to purchase this because of the good reviews. I even got it from overseas as its not yet available in my country. The size of the tube and the brush gave me expectations of large voluminous lashes but in my experience it gave little volume. If you want length and separation then this may suit you, but i didnt give me the drama i expected as the other maybelline mascaras.
