i was a loyal diorshow user for years, but after a while it didn't seem to be doing the trick (and it was getting expensive...) so i picked up the falsies on a whim. i usually have about 3-4 mascaras on rotation, but this one has been my go-to for months now. it gives me lots of drama but is still appropriate for work or for going out for drinks. i've never had a problem with clumping or flaking, and it comes off easily with eye makeup remover. i just bought it in the black drama version and can't wait to try that one soon!

My mom had bought this and didn't like it, so she gave it to me to try. I like that it makes your lashes look thicker and longer, the brush is nice, the price is right, and the bottle is convenient to hold.
The only thing I don't like is that it's sticky when dried on your lashes. If you have to rub your eye for any reason, your lashes stick together and it becomes pretty awkward feeling. Of course, I have the waterproof formula, so that is a possibility. You must have eye make up remover for the water proof one (which in a way is a good thing!) because it won't come off for days with just soap and water lol!

I LOVE this! With just a few strokes, I get long lashes. What more could I ask? I have never had such good results from a mascara, and I've used all of the expensive ones. I'm on my third tube - I can't imagine ever finding anything better.
Easy, quick, no smudges, not too much color, no clumping. Just really pretty, long curly lashes!

Right now, this is my all-time favourite mascara! The formula is nice and goes on without clumping, even if you apply more than one coat. It not only gives my lashes amazing volume, it makes them really long too!

I love this stuff!!!! This is my go to mascara because I seriously don't want to pay the $ it takes to replenish my Hypnose Drama.
This is a great option for those of us who love the Lancome Hypnose :)
It makes my lashes look awesome!

Horrible stuff.. make my lashes look like big clumps, no matter how I apply this. I don't understand the hype about it, it makes my lashes look SO cheap.
However, I use this everyday for my bottom lashes. I don't understand how it makes my tops look gross, but my bottom lashes look amazing when I use this. Maybe it's the spoon brush?? It gives such a nice dolly appearance. Not sure if I'll buy again for that reason.
But please, don't waste your money..

I didn't like it at first, since I found the product to be a bit runny. But the more I used it, but better the formula became! I LOVE IT. HG.

Great mascara for long, fat lashes if applied with care:
1. Wipe the wand down. The formula is wet enough that excess makes a mess.
2. Apply using just the very short bristles in the "bowl" of the spoon. Take care not to twist the brush so that the edge or longer bristles contact your lashes.
3. Comb through your lashes with a clean, dry spoolie brush.
4. Repeat as desired. I can usually do three coats before I get clumping or fallout.
Also, try the brush with other mascaras, if you don't like this formula. For me, the formula is a 3, but the brush is a 5.

This stuff is AMAZING. Doesn't clump, can be layered, no fallout, lasts a long while in the tube, doesn't dry out too soon, isn't too "wet", and comes off easily when removing makeup. I've not tried the waterproof version, but I'm not a waterproof mascara kinda gal (too much of a pain to remove). This stuff stays on so well, and I love the wand. I apply it to my top lashes with the wand tipped up in a "U" shape, and then I flip it over like an arch to apply to my bottom lashes without getting any on my skin. I can't quite explain why I love this stuff, but I do. Basically, it just does exactly what I want, and it's cheap!! I've never been a believer in expensive mascaras, because mascara is one of those things that can't ever get too fancy - so don't overspend on higher-end brands. The quality of your lashes' appearance is hidden more in the application tricks than in the formula of whatever mascara you're using. Yes, you need a good mascara, but you don't need to hit up Dior or Chanel or Estee Lauder to get it. Just make sure you curl them thoroughly before applying (I always curl each eye 2-3 times and hold the curl for at least 20 seconds), and then apply 1-2 coats (allowing to dry between coats) with an upward and outward sweeping motion, and you'll get amazing lashes. I never need falsies when I use this stuff, unless my eye makeup is so dramatic that my lashes need more emphasis (during a night out, for example). Hope this helps some gals. I MUCH prefer this to my L'Oreal Voluminous, because I find the Voluminous dries out soooo quickly and can get dry and clumpy on the lashes. Yuck. I'd caution not to read into too many of the negative reviews here, because if you're patient and you know what you're doing with mascara application, you'll find that this product is probably an HG for you. I didn't know how to rate the packaging quality, because I'm not one of those girls who gives a rip about how a product "looks", as long as it works. That's what we're paying for, right??
