Love this mascara, before this i would have to apply several different ones to get my lashes to look this long. Great for everyday use as lashes look long and naturally full. Stays on well during the day and easy to take off at night
If you want very volumous lashes you may want to add a thickening mascara on top but i think it's fine without it

One of my favorite mascaras, this product looks so natural and doesn't clump. It does a great job of coating individual lashes and giving that false lash effect. However it does not make lashes look fuller.
I also like the fact that it stays put but is very easy to clean off at the end of the day. It is great for a daytime look because it looks so natural. But for night, probably need something that adds more fullness to lashes.

I have a lot of lashes so many of the mascaras I have tried have clumped then together and given the dreaded spider leg effect. Lash extension however has the opposite effect it beautifully defines and lengthens my lashes given a natural look with one coat and more intense but not overly done look with additional coats. I have been asked a few times when wearing this mascara if I have had lash extensions. Not exactly the cheapest mascara on the market but for it's mid range price it delivers high end results. Well worth buying.

This has to be one of my top 5 mascaras. Its quite natural looking, doesn't clump no matter how many coats are applied nor does it give the 'spider lash' look. Its quite cheap too.
Another reason why i love this mascara is how it separates lashes and gives a tiny bit of volume and quite a lot of length.

This is my all time favourite mascara for wearing during the day. I'm not one for massive spidery or clumpy lashes, and if you are, then this mascara is not for you. It provides great length and thickens your lashes without it looking as if you are even wearing mascara. It's so natural, and I much prefer the soft, rubbery brush to some of the hard, bristly ones on the market. I will never stop buying this mascara!

Great quality, excellent value, natural looking mascara. Lovely brush, separates without clumps and a nice formula that stays put all day but is easy enough to remove at the end of the day.
Like others singing the praises of this mascara, I'm not one for the giant, gluey lashes, so if you are don't bother with this. But if you want your eyes to look more defined and naturally pretty, this is a good option at a great price.

This is one of my fave mascaras. It adds length and volume to my lashes making it look very natural. The formula isn't runny so it's harder to make mistakes when applying it. I love the brush so much I evn dip it in other mascara tubes when I've run out of it. My lashes don't look spidery when I use this mascara and it isn't clumpy too. Very easy to use especially for my lower lashes. And it dries quickly when applied.

I generally like Max Factor's mascaras, but it's been really difficult for me to find as it doesn't sell it in Canada, used to sell in USA, and now if I want any, I'll have to ask my bf's mother to get some from UK!!
So since I couldn't be there in person to pick the mascara I want, I could only go onto the website and determine which one to try.
I was very disappointed with this one. It seems the formula is so thin, I can barely tell I've put on any even tho if I put on 3 coats! To me I really didn't see any lengthening effect. I've only used this a handful of times before I couldn't be bother putting mascaras on when I don't get any effect.

I love this! After using this for a very long time and going on to my second tube, I can say that this is a great mascara for me. I use the brown one (it is hard to find a good brown mascara!) and it gives me lovely, feathery and natural-looking lashes. I HATE even slightly clumpy mascaras, and this is very clean. You can really build it up without clumping. It is very good on the bottom lashes, and I like the brush a lot. It's pretty easy to use, and gives great results. Not that expensive either.

I really like this
I suspect its the same as Lash Blast Length based on the company and brush and packaging
I like that this separates and looks feathery and naturalish. Its easy to apply and is good for bottom lashes. its not streaky or flaky
I am a fan. I would repurchase. Not good for people wanting drama. I have naturally decent lashes so I like something to separate, lengthen slightly and hold a curl decently well. If you want volume and drama its not for you.

Brilliant! The first mascara I have truly loved.
I have a difficult relationship with mascara: I love the theory that longer lashes make you look wide awake and gorgeous, but loathe the reality which, for me, is thickened lashes stuck together with gunky bits. In the past Iíd always got around this by painstakingly combing out my mascared lashes with an eyebrow comb to remove the clumps. It worked, but it was tiresome and often resulted in black flakey bits on my cheeks.
I bought this lash extension effect stuff on a whim because I was heading out after work and looked exhausted and terrible. I was disappointed when I opened it because the brush is one with short, rubbery bristles and I was sure the result would be clumpy. Also, I inadvertently bought it in dark brown (I normally go for black) but canít say I notice the difference there. What I do notice is the definition! Brilliant, no eyebrow combs required. I even use it on my lower lashes, which is a first for me, and it looks great.
Iíve noticed that some reviewers have said itís not dramatic enough and I think if youíre after a very heavy, bold look you may be disappointed. I have relatively long lashes anyway and donít wear mascara every day, but when I do I want my lashes to be noticeably longer, not thicker. If I want a little extra I just put another couple of coats on and thatís enough for me but if youíre after something super-dramatic then this might not be for you.
Oh and the packaging? Dark matte plastic, a bit classier than some of the other popular brands but nothing to write home about.

i must say this mascara does really great job as it says on their packaging.. first,i love the rubber bristle to catch the tiny lashes on my eyes.. i'm asian btw.. i don't have much lashes which is quite dissapointed.. but thanks to this mascara! it helps some asian lashes to make it exists! :) the other good thing is it doesn't smudge! really! unlike some mascaras say waterproof but still getting smudge,this one doesn't at all.. the other condition about my eyes, they are really easy to get watery.. so i need the real waterproof mascara to handle this prob.. the only poor thing about this mascara it seems not long lasting after 5 hours you barely can't see like you are wearing mascara.. but i definitely gonna repurchase this good thing.. :)

Absolutely gorgeous mascara! I've been through many different mascaras lately in a search of the HG and although there are some very good findings there always is some issue with them like hard smudging, irritating my eyes and so on, that keeps me from repurchasing. And I think this is great for me because It separates lashes nicely, never clumps and you are of full control to layer as much as you wish according to the look you like. It doesn't flake, smudge, irritate my eyes. It makes them look very delicate, fanned and pretty but still natural. Application is a breeze as is the removal which is very important to me since I have two kids and mornings are such a rush that I don't have enough time to attend to my make-up.
And for reference - my lashes are curled and a bit long but not too thick.
Update: One lippy down due to the bad formula I've bought the last time....have they changed something....It just glued my lashes.

This mascara is a great lengthening mascara with absolutely no thickness. I applied to one eye only to start with and there is a noticeable difference in length. As it only lengthens, it looks very natural on. It applies easily with a thin, long brush. The straight brush took me a little while to get use to but it does the job. I would assume that for most people, this mascara's lack of thickness makes it a deal breaker, but this mascara is absolutely perfect for lower lashes. There's no clumping and is ideal for those like me with light lashes but want them to look natural. I'll definitely be keeping this on hand for my lower lashes.

This is my HG mascara. I've yet to find a better one. Now that I've said that, I need to qualify. I have numerous, long yet fine lashes. I hate volumising mascaras because they always clump my lashes together and make them look short. I also dislike the current fashion for eyelashes that look like they've got pounds of mascara on them, all glued together into a few fat strands. Thats why I love this mascara. I want a mascara that evenly coats each of my lashes witn intense colour, seperates them and helps them look long rather than fat. This mascara does this in 2 easy coats and I never have to comb my lashes with a dry brush to get rid of clumps. Its also the only mascara I can use on my lower lash line without ending up with a ring of smudged mascara under my eyes in a few hours time. It does look extremely natural which is the drawcard for me, I hate to look made up, I like to look like me simply polished. The brush while long helps to get the inner an outer corners and I have no problem with getting mascara on my top eyelids like I do with other brush types. In summary its a great mascara if your not into the clumpy black boot polish on face look. Far too many women these days try to look like false lash enhanced celebrities with a tube of mascara, a mascara cant put extra lashes on your face, you need extensions for that.

After about a a month of using this mascara, I'm still conflicted about it. I'd say it's a decent drugstore mascara, but still nothing exceptional. Max factor does better mascaras, as does other drugstore brands.
It holds curl relatively well, feels lightweight, and does not clump. However, one thing that everyone should know about this mascara is that it's extremely natural. Initially, that's what drew me to it, but now it appears it a little too natural. As in, on the first coat, you lashes lengthen, but become so extremely seperated that it kind of defeats the purpose, as they appear very thin and weak. After a few additional coats, they eventually stand out a little bit more - but it takes hard work to get to this stage. Honestly, the 'naturally long and luscious' look I was going for took way too long than with other mascaras. If you have eons of time in the mornings, sure give this a try, but in my opinion, there are way more moscaras out there that promise to do the same thing, and deliver better.

I got it as a present and I must say I really like it. Althought I usually put around like 3/4 coats to make it really really stand out it makes my eyelashes longer with the first one.
I'd recommend it to people that are used to working on their eyelashes for more than 5 minutes.
Having said that it is pretty average, but it does what it says so can't argue with that really!

If you like a dramatic ,long ,thick ,voluminous bold look .DONT BUY THIS ! it does lengthen but it give a very natural and soft look ,but if i wanted that look i'd just apply any other mascara lightly or not wear mascara at all so i dont see the point.

I was a bit conflicted about this mascara. I purchased it in blue because I have had some good results with Max Factor mascaras in blue in the past. This one didn't show up as blue. You really couldn't see the colour at all. As for having a lash extension effect, well that is crap! The best I can say about it is that it separates lashes really well, but you have to work really hard to get any volume or length. I had to apply about 4 coats to see any decent results. It is very, very ordinary. Didn't hate it, but there are much better mascaras out there. Wouldn't repurchase.
