This is a very average mascara. The only reason I bought it is because I took a trip to Vegas and forgot to pack my mascara like a moron. I had to go to one of the CVS stores on the strip and I found this. For the price, I don't think it's worth it. The formula is not very wet at all but I wouldn't call it dry either. The packaging is a bit unique. The brush is plastic and has a very defined, almost C-shaped curve. When you pull it out of the tube, there's some sort of tube within that makes the mascara very clean when you pull it out. Not clumpy at all. Alone this mascara doesn't do a whole lot. It's supposed to give you dramatic "pin-up girl" lashes. It does volumize pretty well, but it comes out so clean that there's not enough product to build up that volume. I find if you pair with another mascara it works better. I use my Jordana mascara first and then finish with this one and I do get extra life and nice,dramatic lashes. In my opinion, you shouldn't have to pair a mascara with another for it to work better. It should just work on its own. I'll use it up, but it's not anything I'd repurchase. I can't really even use it on my bottom lashes due to how the brush is shaped.

Edit: I have been using it for the last two months and I have to say that I like it a bit more now. I've learned how to use the wand and I can actually say the C shape works to your advantage. The key is to keep the brush on it's side and swipe it that way over the lashes. You can use the curved part to go under the lashes at the root for volume. It does add volume. You can also pretty easily use it on the bottom lashes. I probably won't repurchase, but t's not a horrible mascara. I gave it one more lippie.

My eyelashes are extremely dense and no mascara has ever been able to curl them. I always use an eyelash curler but no matter what they would always straighten out almost immediately. I bought this out of a wim because the last mascara wasn't that great and this one ended up being fantastic. It curls my lashes amazingly and they stay curled all day. Its even pretty water proof which is great if you swim. I love this mascara and I will buy it again. The only dislike is that it doesn't volumize that much it isn't meant for that anyway

I am a drugstore mascara junkie. always hunting for the one. I've found nyx mascaras to be all over the place. I love some and hate some. This one is right in the middle. Its a very thin, wet formula which I prefer. It does take forever to dry. It is extremely difficult to remove! Its ok for length (what I want most in mascara), better than a lot of others that I've bought. Great for curling and separating. Not super for volume. I'm not big on volume so this works for me. This is not a super dramatic mascara but a nice daytime formula.

I wanted to love this mascara, but your mileage may vary. I wear contacts and have extremely sensitive eyes. I received this mascara as a free gift with one of my online ulta purchases. I adore the packaging and the curved wand. It is a little bulky, but I typically don't carry mascara around with me, so that was a non-issue.

I love the way my lashes look when I first apply this mascara, but after a few hours I inevitably end up with it flaking all over my face and my eyes feel irritated and itchy. I typically do not have problems with mascara running or flaking, but this was a deal breaker for me :(

I purchased a NYX "Complete look box" at my local Ulta for about $30, which was quite a deal because it came with 3 eye shadows, an eye liner, a lip butter stick, and a mascara. The mascara in this box was the Pin Up tease.
I really love the formula, it's pretty thin, but the more you layer it the better it gets. The only down side of this mascara, for me, is the wand. It's like the Cat eye Colossal wand from Maybelline, I don't care for the curved wands, i feel like it looks amazing on one eye, but doesn't have the same effect for the other.
I wish they would make this formula with NYX Badunkadunk's wand. It would be so perfect.
Also, another thing when working with this mascara is that taking it off is the WORST!!
Other than that, it does exactly what it claims to do. I highly recommend visiting Ulta and getting one of those NYX boxes, it's such a great steal.

This is a good mascara. I am shocked that I like it because it has multiple things about it that I normally hate about other mascaras, like how wet the formula is and the bristles on the wand etc. I was looking for a curling mascara and this one does curl really well. It looks best if you apply multiple coats in thin layers and wait 30-60 seconds in between each coat. That way it lengthens and you can get it to thicken up even though it's one of those plastic brush like wands instead of the soft ones that usually thicken better. Overall I really am satisfied and this mascara continues to make me a die hard NYX fan.

I really love this mascara! The brush separates every lash and coats them evenly. I have no clumps whatsoever when using this. It does take a while to dry, but that isn't a huge issue for me, personally. This is my favorite mascara I've used, and will continue to buy it!

This is one of my all time favourite mascaras and my most used recently. It doesn't clump, hasn't got a unpleasant odour and the curved brush gives amazing curl and length especially when used with an eyelash curler. A nice price too. I will definitely be repurchasing.

Pros ~ Amazing curl. No clumps. Doesn't smudge. Curved brush. No nasty mascara smell. Can build it up for a more dramatic look.

Cons ~ None that I have found.

I like how this looks but it is so messy. It takes forever to dry and it's hard to apply and flakes off bottom lashes fast.
