I tend to keep this in my stash as an everyday mascara or when the budget doesn't allow me to go for my favorite Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. It is a staple product that deserves a try if you are looking for more volume. I have had a problem with the tubes stoppers dropping out which renders the tube useless and since this is drugstore you're pretty much stuck with a ruined tube at that point which stinks. It lasts all day and comes off easily when I want it to, doesn't irritate. Can't complain too much!

I absolutely L-O-V-E and A-D-O-R-E this product. I have tried all kinds of mascaras including extremely expensive as well as the drug store ones and I always go back to this mascara.

In the past, I've tried to convince myself that all mascaras are the same and essentially produce the same result (oh young, naive me) but after buying about every drugstore mascara that's cheap, I always return back to this.
After reading some reviews, I realized what it is about this mascara that works the best for me - I have thin asian lashes that point downwards and this mascara is just what I need to achieve a bold, dramatic look. Other cheaper mascaras that I find in the drugstore don't do the same thing for me because they make my lashes look thin & separated. I usually have to apply many layers to the look I want.
This brand makes them look "closer-together" and fanned out; I'm not that well-versed in mascara so I can't describe it. The brush it comes with has a concave shape to it to help my lashes curve upwards naturally, creating the dramatic look. Overall, this mascara makes my lashes really bold and look thicker, which is exactly what I need - I understand for others it may look too dramatic if you already have thicker lashes.

This is my HG mascara. This stuff is amazing: it lengthens, thickens, and curls lashes. I have repurchased twice and will repurchase again. The only drawback is the stubbornness of the waterproof formula, but that comes with every waterproof mascara.

I got this because I'd heard so many people raving about it, but I just couldn't get it to work. I don't know if I got a malfunctioning bottle, but this turned my lashes into nothing but one huge clump. I've tried it several times but we just don't get along.

This mascara is best for volume and some length, but this is not a mascara for a natural look. It clumps a bit, and sticks lashes together for a very dramatic look. I personally like my lashes long, very black and defined and this mascara does not separate the lashes enough for my tastes.

If you like the look of very dramatic, "spider" lashes...this is good for you, though!
If you like more separation to your eyelashes, I would say try something else.

Hands-down this is one of the best drugstore mascaras out there! Almost gives you the look of falsies when applied properly!

I really wasn't wowed by this mascara. I know it's a pretty popular mascara in the makeup world so I decided to try it out one day.

It applied easily but I didn't see any really outstanding results that would make me want to stray away from my current HG Maybelline's Full n Soft mascara. Within a few hours some of it had smeared/flaked which doesn't happen to me with Full n Soft. It just really, really, REALLY didn't look good on my eyelashes and I would not purchase again.

I'm only giving this an extra lippie because I used the color black-brown which my HG full n soft doesn't have. That color is just usually softer on my very light blue eyes. So I can use this mascara on some days when I want a more "natural" look but otherwise this makeup wasn't anything extraordinary.

This mascara weighed my lashes down and made them .fan out. It did make them look great and no clumps. The product is just too heavy
