Holy crap!!!!! This is the best mascara i have ever used. Now I normally cannot stand the mascara wands w/the plastic bristles... One of my pet peeves lol. I also gave up on dept. store mascara a long time ago since it all seems the same to me. But this one works brilliantly. love the curved brush b/c it takes me forever to curl my lashes (very stubborn straight lashes) and this helps enhance the curl. 3D multiplex is very black, I'd say as black as diorshow blackout but kicks more ass, thicker fuller longer lashes, AND and has an easy to use, reasonable sized brush lol. I never would have tried this mascara if it wasn't included in the new private affair collection. This and the cream liner are already my new faves, worth the $38 purchase on their own (the eye shadows are fantastic for green eyes btw) Will def replace when I run out

THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST MASCARA I HAVE EVER TRIED! Beautiful, fluttery, curled, thick but NO clumps, non-irritating and jet black! The only mascara I have every tried that does all of these!!

I bought this product because I generally love Lorac products, and I loved the results. It is now my every day mascara because its not too dramatic but it separates and defines PERFECTLY. Its true, the formula is much more watery than normal mascaras, but I personally like that because its smoother to apply and creates no clumps. The color is a beautiful dark black.The reason why I gave it 4 lips is because it doesn't really give much volume, therefore it doesn't really do what it promises. HOWEVER, my lashes have felt much thicker since I started using this product. The plastic bristles caught me off guard but I'm now a fan of them because they don't waste any product. If you want super full dramatic lashes, not for you. If you're looking for a defined, every day look, this is for you :)

This product IS very similar to UD's Supercurl mascara, as another person mentioned. In fact, if you put the wands side by side, they look almost exactly the same. Both separate, lift, and volumize my short and sparse Asian lashes very well without clumping or flaking. LORAC is $2 more than UD at $22, but holds slightly more product (.43 oz vs. UD's .3 oz). I think both are sorta misnomers - I actually think LORAC adds more lift and curl while the UD adds more volume and thickness to my lashes. But these differences are very slight. I'd repurchase both of them for sure- HGs for me.

someone below wrote "Luckily, I got this as part of the Close Up set for $39 and really love every product in it besides this. If I had spent $22 on this outside of the set, I'd be returning for sure." Ditto, I agree!
Honestly, I adore Lorac Products, but this mascara is to blame for flaking in my eyes/contact lenses more than once. In the garbage it goes, and will not be purchasing. I have tried several HE mascaras and this one is not one to top any type of list I have.

I absolutely love this mascara. I have tried majority of the drugstore mascaras and some of the most popular high-end mascaras, and this one has them beat. This mascara lengthens, volumizes, and curls. It can be clumpy if too many coats are applied, but I typically apply two and it makes my lashes lush and soft. It adds a shiny appearance to the lashes, which I have never seen with any other mascaras. I do think the price is a little steep though. Other than that, I think this mascara deserves 4-5 stars!

Terrible mascara? No. But whoever at LORAC decided this was volumizing should lose their job. Maybe they just don't sell as many mascaras with lengthening in the name, but this is about as far from a volumizing mascara as I've ever seen. My lashes look thin and spidery. Slightly enhanced from my natural lashes, but for a $22 product, nowhere near enhanced enough to cut it. Really hate this, unfortunately. Packaging is great though. I like the curved brush and the reflective silver.
Luckily, I got this as part of the Close Up set for $39 and really love every product in it besides this. If I had spent $22 on this outside of the set, I'd be returning for sure. Overall, just one more expensive mascara to convince me high-end brands simply can't do anything with mascara that drugstore brands can't also do. I'm sticking with my <$10 drugstore brands that at least actually thicken my lashes. Will not buy again!

First let me say that I never buy pricy mascaras like this. I always buy the cheap drugstore stuff, simply because I don't need my mascara to do much. I already have long, thick eyelashes. I don't need length, I don't need volume. My mascara simply has to do 2 things - keep my eyelashes curly and very black. It is nice and black, I'll give it that. And it does hold on pretty good - which is why I'm confused that it doesn't hold a curl for me. At least, by itself it certainly doesn't. I do like the packaging and brush - it declumps itself (mostly) and I like the plastic bristles. But my eyelashes won't stay curly. Very sad. I'm going to experiment and see if I pre curl and use other mascara's if it'll stay. If I somehow figure out how to make it work, I'll definitely update. Till then, this product is a no for me.

I tend to have "love/hate" relationships with mascara. This is one of those that I do really like and will probably purchase again. I like the brush a lot and feel that the mascara does deliver on length and volume.
The formula can be a bit tricky as it's wet and can clump. I have to do some cleaning on my lid at times with this one, and I don't like that, which is why this mascara doesn't qualify as a "5".
Otherwise, if the price wasn't quite as steep, this would be a regular "go to" mascara for me as it delivers.

This one definitely lengthens and curls, but does not volumize, which is what i need. If your lashes are thick, go for it.

I love this mascara, I actually think this is my favourite mascara. I'm oriental/asian and have medium length and medium thickness lashes, permed using the LVL system.
I'm currently using this mascara as a sample bought as a set of 8 samples from Sephora. It's a great natural looking mascara. There's no clumping, it separates the lashes well and defines them. I've used it both with the Dior Maximiser Lash serum and on it's own and it looks great both ways. It goes on really evenly, I wonder whether this is because of the brush and packaging. The brush is curved and 'spikey' there's resistance when you pull the brush out so I suspect it the mascara bottle wipes off the excess product. The brush is really easy to use.
The only downside is that it's quite difficult to remove, even after using an eye make-up remover and showering I still get black gunky bits in the morning. On the plus side it doesn't smudge at all!
Overall the best mascara I've ever used, only problem is they don't sell it in the UK :(

for several years I have used the volume shocking mascara and since it has been discontinued I have scoured the earth for something close and this is it. It goes on lovely and only needs a few coats. So far I have no problem with flaking and thats a big issue with me since I wear contacts a lot and hate waterproof mascara. This washes off very easily as well. I only gave it a 4 because I wish it did a little more on the volume but as far as length is concerned, its a 10.

This mascara is spectacular. It has a curved comb-like brush that separates and lengthens all the while adding a great amount of volume. It's a fantastic formula and I have never had any problems with smudging of crumbling.
However, like other reviewers, I wasn't thrilled at first. I generally prefer a fuller brush, and this thin, curved one took some getting used to. At first my lashes came out spidery and clumpy because I hadn't learned to properly align it with my eye. The key is to look-up and align it with the curve of your lashes, begin from the bottom of your lash line. If it doesn't jive with you right away, keep tweaking you application and give it a second chance because it really is worth it!

This mascara is now one of my absolute favorites. I'm also a nurse and this stays put! Usually mascaras tend to smudge on me but this one doesn't. I got this in the Red Carpet kit (which is an absolute steal). Also, the application is tricky at first and when I didn't know how to do it, it came out all clumpy and ugly. But then I figured out that the curve has to align with your eye. So for everyone who probably didn't like this, that might be the reason why. Once you get it, your lashes come out neat, long, curvy and volumized! It's absolutely amazing !!!
Definitely a new HG mascara for me.

I am a person who has been on the hunt for a good everyday mascara. One that won't run or smudge or clump together, and one that gives me volume and length without a clumpy mess. I have finally found one!!! I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts. My biggest problem was that every mascara I had would run giving me horrible dark cirlces under my eyes at the end of the day. I tried many waterproof mascara's thinking this would help (wrong). I got the Lorac red carpet day/night look kit with this mascara in it, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. This mascara stays on and stays put, it thickens enough without being clumpy, dries quick enough so it doesn't get all over my eyes, but is totally buildable. I'm usuasally not a fan of those rubber bristles or a curved wand, but this mascara completely changed my mind. Glad to have finally found a mascara that can stand up to my crazy schedule and prevent raccoon eyes at the end of the day!

I want to love this, I really do. My lashes are naturally full and long, and when using this, they look amazing! But it inevitably clumps, runs and deposits bits of color as the day/night goes on.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I really didn't think I'd like this mascara because I'm not a fan of the curved, silicone brushes, normally. This mascara is awesome! The curve of the brush really does help "fan" out my eyelashes and the formula makes them look thicker and longer. I was presently surprised! Warning: Don't apply in a hurry, or the brush WILL stab you in the eye ;)

The only reason why I tried this mascara is because it was in a LORAC HD kit that I got..everything in the kit was amazing, and this was terrible! I put it on and an hour later my boyfriend asked me what was all over my eyes, I went to look in the mirror and the mascara had smudged and flaked all over my eyes and face, when I didn't even touch it! I have never had a mascara do this, not even with drugstore brands. It went on well, but seems to literally just flake and fall off as soon as it dries. I have no idea how its getting any good reviews as I can't see how anyone could deal with that. If I went to work with that on I'd look like a mess!

I am the girl in the photos with the green eyes and the close up of the curved brush. As you can see it lengthens very well and separates lashes. I wish it gave more volume though, so I might try it with a primer or a different brush. Its extremely black and holds a curl well, although my lashes arent stick straight either. Once its on, it stays put, I didnt experience any flaking even on the lower lashes. It was free with a $25 lorac purchase from ulta, but I dont know if Id get this again. I want a mascara that volumizes a little more.

This mascara is awful. It totally clumps, I have to use a brush to separate lashes after using it -- and it takes forever to dry. The only reason I haven't just tossed it is because I paid $20 for it. Not happy at all, and don't understand the raves...
