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."

I keep thinking I might find something better than this from the drugstore but I always come back to this. Everything about it is great.

This is my go to mascara over the years. Whenever I run out and cant choose what I want to try next I always reach for this. Its nothing fancy, the package is plain, its black and it makes my lashes look slightly thicker and longer. Its an everyday look. I know it works and its from a brand I trust.

This honestly may have been one of the first mascaras I have ever tried. I feel like my makeup bag has always had a tube of it in it.

It does smudge sometimes if I put it on before my foundation has set.

Hoped this mascara would not smudge on me but it did.

Above my eyelids i got black smudges so this is a NO for me!

I go futher looking for my holy grail mascara.

This mascara is amazing. Everything about it seems simple. The brush is a basic bristle brush, no fancy shape or design, the tube is classic gold and black. It goes on sale for $5 or $6 a lot, cheaper than most others.
It seems so basic, but performs so much better than the vast majority of mascaras that I've tried. It is very easy to apply, and does everything I want. My lashes look long and voluminous, they retain their natural curl, and they stay soft looking, not stiff or crunchy, even with a few coats on. With other products, it usually takes some effort to get the outer corners of my eyes, but this mascara coats those lashes no problem. The formula is not too wet or too dry, and there is no flaking throughout the day.
I bought this once a few years ago, and it was really messy and clumpy, but I must have just bought an unusually bad or old tube. I would recommend taking it back to the store and exchanging it for a new one if you get one like that, because when I tried this again I fell in love with it. It was nothing like the first one I bought.
I will definitely be repurchasing in the future, this has become one of my all time favourites.

Ugly packaging and horrible packaging.
I hate it when people say this is "the best thickening" and the "blackest"
it is none of these things. I have tried three different tubes over the years after reading the rave reviews and EVERY time i am hugely disappointed and have to wash it off.
It is as if they put far too many fibres in this, it literally balls up as i'm putting it on my lashes and i have naturally very good ones. Just horrible.

My go to, I'm broke, mascara. It is what it is - nothing too special but my lashes look long and it's better than other drug store brands.
