I have been searching for so long for a good mascara, so I was so happy to finally try this one! It is honestly the only mascara that works for me. It doesnít flake, keeps pretty good volume and is really easy to apply.

Only reason I donít give it a perfect score is because whenever I take the wand out to put the mascara on, there is always a TON of product left hanging on the very end of the wand. I usually have to end up taking it off onto my hand or with a q-tip because otherwise it will go all over. If I attempt to put it back, it just makes the wand build up with globs of product the next time I go to use it, so thatís quite irritating but I am willing to deal with it since itís such a good formula!

I used this mascara for layering. I never used it on its own, I'm not a huge fan of its wet formula. I used it over the telescopic mascara. The two together looked great, but I don't want to spend time layering mascaras in the morning when I can achieve the same look with one different mascara. I probably wouldn't repurchase this again.

This mascara is amazing. I don't really have to go on and on about it. Don't waste your money on high end mascaras this is great! It's a classic for a reason. I have been using this since I was 16 and I will keep repurchasing forever.

My top holy grail mascara. Nothing like it. I have tried so many mascaras and nothing lives up to this one. Its just perfect. I like the formulas consistency, doesn't clump if you apply it properly and really does live up to its title... It volumizes! Ive tried pretty much every wand, every formula from this line, and they're all great. Lots of makeup artist use this product on their clients. It really is a product to rave about. The best part about it? It doesn't break the bank. I'm all for high end products, but i really do love drugstore product that live up to high end quality and this mascara does just that. I can honestly say that it is one of my most used products in my makeup collection.

I have issues with this mascara smudging and clumping for me. I prefer the Covergirl Clump Crusher for a drugstore option. I talk about these mascaras and others in my video if you want to check it out.

I love this mascara for long, full of volume lashes! I definitely wouldn't use more than one coat if you just want natural looking lashes, because this mascara isn't for that.

Love this mascara. It's so basic that I think people really underestimate. But when I wear this..... :) ...... It makes my lashes so incredibly long that it looks like I've gotten lash extensions. I knocked off one lippie because it does tend to smudge if you're not careful and the formula is pretty wet. I will continue to buy this until I find something that can perform just as well without the smudging.

Updated: I added a lippie because after trying many high-end mascaras recently, none of them can even compare. I'm done searching...THIS IS IT!

I still haven't found a mascara I like, let alone love and not even CLOSE to an HG! BUT, that said, this is one of my favorites. My lashes are fairly long but blonde on the tips so I really need mascara- the problem is, they all make my lashes go straight! I've probably tried the top 100 recommended- no joke! I love the brush of They're Real but don't love the mascara- I LOVED a tube of NYC Sky High- but the next tube was horrible- that seems to be common with mascaras- they're inconsistent - or is it me? My HG is Defincils but ONLY in the sample size- i'd even be willing to pay full size price if they would offer it! And I use the Shu Emura curler which works great- so not sure what my problem is. I need one that actually holds a curl, and this is better than most.

I think negative reviews come from people who are looking for that "natural looking eyelashes." This specifically states that it will give volume as well as length. If you didn't want that, then don't expect it to look natural and write a negative review. I LOVE this mascara because it's very bold and can transform my lashes to looking like I'm wearing falsies. I've tried almost every mascara brand I come across and this one beats the price and quality. This is for dramatic wispy lashes so don't waste your time if you want "no makeup, makeup lashes."
