Not terrible but definitely not good either. I have short, sparse eyelashes so finding a mascara that will hold curl while still building volume and length has always been a problem for me. With this, while it does a great job building volume, it barely lengthens so my lashes end up looking stubby and unnatural. The Falsies also does not do a good job with defining my lashes as it always clumps up. Lastly, I have oily lids so the mascara always transfers to my upper lid and lower lashline.

If you have dry lids and long, thin lashes, I think it would be perfect. For everyone else, though, not so much.

In my opinion, it will not give a "false eyelash look" however, it is one of the better drugstore mascara's that I have tried. It is buildable without getting clumpy. Helps with length more so than volume on my lashes. Does not flake or run.

I got this by accident... but am loving it! Nice length, volume and wearability. Does not smudge and washes off with ease

I bought this and it didn't disappoint. Its a decent mascara :) But its not really BLACKEST BLACK... it dries to a powdery black almost gray color
Only one coat needed
Lasts a long time (full 3 months) mine is just starting to dry
Easy to get off (I have the non waterproof)
Fuzzy application (you need to really take your time to separate lashes)
Not the blackest black
Not volumizing

Im sattisfied but not repurchasing as I would like to try avon supershock, and other options :) might come back to this one though! Really worth trying :)

I did have high expectations for this mascara after all the raving on about it on youtube.

Initially I didn't like it. I didn't understand what was the huge hype about it. It made my lashes stick together and looked like I had 3 really thick lashes. Not cute and certainly unimpressed.

But I didn't give up. I was determined to make this work. I didn't want to waste my money on this so it had to work.

After about few days I was beginning to lose hope but I tried something different - I flipped the wand around. As this wand is curved I was using it the wrong way! I felt so stupid as this amazing mascara gave me incredible length and volume just from flipping the brush! I was so impressed by this mascara!

- volume and length
- somewhat cheap
- brush

- gets clumpy
- if applying too much it makes lashes stick together

I wouldn't repurchase this mascara because I do like to switch things up a bit. I've never repurchased the same mascara before but if I ever did it would be this or the Covergirl LashBlast :)

I love this mascara! A lot of people claim that it clumps, gives a spidery finish, or is hard to come off. Since I began using it, I have not once had clumpy lashes. The formula is a bit wet so all I do to make sure it doesn't clump is apply it from the base of my lashes all the way to the tips in single strokes. I have noticed in other watery mascaras that if you do not use the one-stroke method and opt for the short strokes all the way up method, your lashes will clump greatly. My lashes are naturally curled and pretty long so I don't usually need mascaras to be amazing, however, this mascara really makes them look great. I have even tried it on friends with shorter/straight lashes and as long as you curl your lashes before applying, it works very nicely on them as well. As for it being hard to take off, it comes off a bit too easily for me and I use the waterproof one. The second it gets wet, it comes off without hesitation. Maybe it's just the one I got but either way, it comes off really easily. I will repurchase it though so I'll see if the next tube I get is the same. Overall, I would reccommend this mascara but I would advise the one-stroke method of applying.

I love this mascara! It applies beautifully and doesn't clump or get goopy. I use the scooped out part to put it on and it really lifts up the lashes and gives great length and volume.

I really liked this mascara, it was incredibly cheap - $4.99 at Shoppers Drugmart, and it provided excellent results. My eyelashes are fairly normal, not too long, not too short; fairly dark in colour and not too thin. I do admit to curling my eyelashes every day because it makes my eyes look a million times bigger. The first time I used this mascara I found that the formula was a little too wet and it made my eyelashes look spidery. However, I didn't give up on it and after a week of using t every day I finally got the results I was looking for. My lashes were long, full and perfectly separated! Although it did not look like I was wearing false eyelashes I never really expected my lashes to look like the model's in the ad.
I enjoy trying out new mascaras so I probably won' t be buying this one again for a while, but I was very impressed with the results it gave me for those five short months. :) I would recommend this mascara to anyone who wants beautiful dark lashes but do not expect the false eyelash look because you won't get it.
