So, I am a big believe in HUGE lashes, and I usually use L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise, but I wanted to try something a little cheaper, just to try out (since I work at a drug store, sometimes I just waste time looking at the products, finding new things to try.)
The packaging is adorable, and I was really hopeful about the brush since I've been a fan of similar brushes (especially The Balm mad lash mascara)
I tried this this morning, and I wasn't a huge fan of the brush even though I've used brushes like this before but this one just was not doing it for me. I like thick mascara, not clumpy but dark and long, and the product just didn't seem wet enough for me to put the amount I wanted before it just got too dry and hard on my lashes to double up or even triple up on layers.
After it was done, it was alright, my lashes looked long and brushed out and such, but not really as dark or big as I wanted. Would not repurchase, but would recommend for someone who wants a more natural looking mascara (contrary to the name "Falsies")

I was on vacation and in desperate need of mascara. Only 1 shop in town and no acess to reviews, so I just took a chance and grabbed this. Ugh, it's so clumpy. When I got back home I even tried it under mascara primer and it still clumped. It makes my eyelashes look bumpy and spikey, really not a good look. I also felt the color was not a saturated lush black which I would prefer. Can a mascara be dingy? I liked the shape of the brush and that's about it. Oh, I forgot to mention, there is no way to apply another coat. It becomes very dry and set quickly, it's discouraging.

Gives volume without the spider effect. No clumps. I did need to use another mascara for corner lashes but I like this. I got the blackest black and it's good.

Update: does work better with a lash primer because it tends to skip sections of my lashes.

I got this mascara in the waterproof version and it doesn't come off in a lake or pools which is great because I go swimming quite a bit. my friends always ask what Mascara I use because they think I have fake lashes on which makes me happy. the real reason I got this was because Acacia Brinley used to love it and she was right it's great I use it almost every day!I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't like the hassle of falsies

I really love the brush on this particular mascara. I have straight, fine lashes and this really lifts them and plumps them up. The formula is nice for volume because it is a mousse-like texture, and it doesn't really get very flaky until the tube dries out a lot. I could usually get about two months of daily use, which isn't too bad at this price point. Unfortunately I will not repurchase because it is not cruelty free, but if you just need an inexpensive drugstore mascara that volumizes then this may be a good option.

I really like the brush except that it collects a lot of product on the top of it which makes it harder to apply.
I always use REVLON's eyelash curler before applying mascara and this mascara doesn't hold the curl at all.

+ Good pigment (I wear "Blackest Black")
+ Brush
+ Price Point

- Smudges
- Doesn't separate the lashes
- Clumps up

I've been using this product for a month

Okay, well this product has been something I have been buying for about 2 years now,

1) It makes my lashes super long and very visable!
2) The product smells like nothing.
3) The brush works well & does the job but after about 10+ uses the air traps into the bottle and causes the product to clump onto the brush.
4) It does not curl your lashes or hold lashes up that well ( do not choose this if your wearing false lashes.)
5) The packaging fades if left in makeup bag after about a month ( the product lasts that long after openening, I really am picky with textures of mascara, I like when they are not wet but not thick either if you know what I mean)

All in all I purchased this from my local Pharmaprix in Montreal on Sale for 6$, And it does the job and doesn't flake off like some mascaras I have bought, although after 9 hours nothing looks as great as when you first applied it)

Hope this helps :)

I have used the product for like a year and I love it The design on the front is bad because it ended up coming off. I really do like this and I have been asked multiple times if I had on fake eye lashes. I wouldn't buy it again because it does clump up and I do have to like scrape the bristles against the sides so I don't have that much mascara. I experimented with it and I like it but I would get another mascara. It is better to use when it is almost empty.
