Almost perfect mascara on my straight, spare, short Asian lashes. Fabulous volume, length, and curl. So WHY the smudging? And yet, so hard to remove! The irony! I have yet to find anything else that enhances my skimpy lashes so well. It volumizes without weighing down, holds a curl all day in the blackest black color, and just really opens my eyes. My solution to the smudging is to add one quick layer of the Clinique lash power on top of the Nars and it seals it all in. As for removal, an oil based remover on a cotton pad pressed for 30 secs does the trick. A lotta work but I have yet to find anything else this good.

Beautiful everyday mascara which gives full lashes and is very comfortable to wear, as it leaves my lashes soft to the touch. It gives more of a natural effect with one coat and slightly more voluminous with 2. Definitely a good mascara if you need to define your lashes without weighing them down.
The brush is big just like the majority of volumising mascaras out there and it's quite easy to get the hang on. I will definitely repurchase when I run out!

This is works how I want it to work this is wonderful mascara it gives volume, length, definition. just all around great mascara and no perfume smell. it is little had to take off but it holds lashs in place and curls your lashs without using a eye lash curler, THANK YOU NARS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART I will do update later to make sure it don't disappear or flake or smudge I will let you know now I will tell you it is not a drama mascara it is more of a natural color if you want drama you can put this one on and add another darker mascara to have that effect this is good for a day at work

I have very sparse lashes and this mascara thickens as well as holds the curl. This is the only mascara that works for me. I'm an esthetician and am getting "steamed" all day long. Larger than Life mascara never smudges! I'm impressed by the fan-like lashes it creates and stays that way till I take it off!

Absolutely bloody rubbish! The worst mascara on the entire planet. Spent the longest time ever trying to build up product. It was as if the product refused to adhere to my lashes. I exchanged it for Laura Mercier's Long lash which is superb! Nars should be ashamed of themselves for selling substandard garbage such as this.

I was a die-hard Shu Uemera Basic lover. When they discontinued it, I was broken hearted because I could never find anything else that didn't straighten my lashes even after curling them with the Shu curler. The new Shu mascara, while decent was underwhelming.
I read about this and decided to give it a try at Sephora, knowing they would take it back if I didn't like it. When it's new, you really need to wipe off the excess before applying or you will get clumps and worse, tons of gunk on your lids. But, once you wipe off the wand, there is just the right amount left to get a very nice clump free application. It not only keeps the curl for me, it makes my lashes appear curlier. And, it is totally buildable. Three coats, with time to dry between, and no clumps. Although it's not a lengthening mascara, it does add a bit of length as well as volume. I get a bit of smudge with all mascaras, so this one is no worse than any from Shu.
The only inconvenient part is the brush is too thick for bottom lashes. I have some Shu left which has a thinner brush, so I am using that for now on the bottom, but when that is finished, I will experiment with d/s mascaras with thin brushes until I find one that doesn't smudge for my bottom lashes.

This was a bad idea. It did nothing for me! The brush was too big and it was really messy.

This is my first department brand mascara and I've used it daily for a FULL YEAR. and it's designed as a volumizing mascara that will give the illusion of a fuller fringe of lashes.
When I first received that product, it flaked and wiggled it's self under my contacts causing irritation. After a couple days, it stopped flaking and I've never experienced it since. This is a very build-able mascara and it never clumped except for the first few days I applied it. It gives black and soft lashes. I can wear this for twelve hours, It did everything it said it would do, however, there are still cons.
One con is it smudges like whoa! I have contacts and sometimes I would have the instinct to itch. When I did, even for a second, I would literally look like a raccoon! It isn't very good for my just-about-non-existent-lower-lashes. The wand is way too large, would smear, and cause raccoon eyes. I would actually like to itch my eyes with this mascara, but it's just not possible. A good note is that it starts to loose it's effect after a full year of use. I would say this mascara is on the medium side of natural lashes.
Other than that, it does as advertised and I would purchase it again if I couldn't find any other mascara. It could be a bit more voluminous (in two coats) and seems like an overall good mascara. However, I want to try a few more mascaras before I comeback and call this my holy grail.

Worst mascara ever. Lashes were longer but skimpy on volume. Left lashes stuff and the stuff would not wash off! I too checked if I had gotten waterproof mascara, but alas I did not. I even used Nars makeup remover which is also lousy. Do not buy this there are so many better mascaras at the drugstore! I am a makeup artist and found it to be worthless.

I have straight skimpy lashes and this bad boy separates, thickens and coats them with a rich, deep, intense black pigment. It's unique brush also does a great job in getting even the tiny lashes on the corners of my eye. I also love that I can literally pile as many coats as I want with zero clumping! In addition, I live in a very humid country and this mascara stays put all day long. It doesn't smudge, budge, transfer, flake and the best part.. it holds the curl of my lashes like nobody's business! Seriously, my lashes stay fuller, curled, and flirty for the entire day.
