Bought this as I've been hearing good things about Illamasqua, it didn't disappoint!The spoolie is medium sized with dense bristles, no gimmicky pattern or weird brush design, reminds me of a smaller version of diorshow brush.The formula is good, black- doesn't flake or smudge particularly (like any mascara it will smudge against creamy concealers if you don't powder) Lengthens and thickens to a good standard with a couple of coats. Decent longevity, priced at £20 this is cheaper than its competitors (YSL/ Lancome/ Dior all around £25)For me it doesn't beat Diorshow but it's a damn close second.TIP: would recommend curling lashes first as the formula doesn't encourage any curl on it's own- the trade off for non-flake Xx

Smudgy, flakey, clumpy. Unacceptable at any price point.

Ok. A bit clumpy which I didn't like. Nothing special.

Why would anybody buy this more than once? It is TERRIBLE!!!!Mascara smudged quite badly for full on panda eyes, I wiped the excess off the brush before applying, so I wasn't being over-zealous wiht the amount of product I applied. Did not make lashes stand out at all. Used it twice (second time just to make sure it was as bad as first feared) and then it went in the bin. Do not waste your money buying this rubbish. ANY other mascara would be better than this one

What is not to love about this product ! I have tried many different mascaras over the years all claiming to - curl, lengthen, thicken etc etc and none so far have given me the look I have longed for. I had quite poor eyelashes due to having 3D Hollywood lashes applied over and over so I have often found it difficult to get them exactly how I want them..... That is of course until I found Masquara ! What I love about this product is that it is highly build-able without clumping which I don't feel I've ever had with other mascaras, it also doesn't flake during the day and stays put. I have been asked if I've been wearing false eyelashes or had my lashes curled so it does give the false lash effect. The other thing I love about this product is its colour - it is extremely black which I think just make your eyes pop ! All round its an amazing product and I defiantly would recommend it :) :)

I've been going back to this product time and time again! I have naturally long lashes, but this product makes them thicker, darker, and plusher. I always get asked if I'm wearing falsies! It's a lot more than the drug store brands, but none that I've tried have come anywhere near this quality.

This is an okay mascara. The pigment is a nice, rich black and coats the lashes evenly. It gives okay length but not much volume so it's not for me as I like full va va voom lashes. It would be best if you're already blessed with long, reasonably thick lashes and want some added definition. The staying power is okay although I coated my lashes a few times for the extra volume and ended up with a wee bit of flaking. It does come off easy with a regular eye makeup remover. There are better mascaras out there, both high end and low end.

A very impressive mascara. It's true black with a fairly wet formula (in the beginning) but drys very quickly. After the tube has been open for a couple of months, the formula becomes less obviously wet and more average - it's really easy to work with. It gives a whole lot of volume to my average lashes, a decent amount of length, and is easily buildable to something quite dramatic. It can be prone to a little bit clumping due to the brush shape sometimes picking up too much product - particularly at the end - but this is easily seperated and causes no nuisance. Lashes feel flexible, quite natural and don't get crunchy during wear. I'm pleased to say I do not get any mascara fallout over the day, no black grains under the eyes - this is the only mascara I can say that about. It's average in water resistance, you can tear up a little bit e.g. from wind without worrying, but a full on sob will see it starting to run. No issues with removal. My one criticism of this mascara is that the brush is not great for the lower lashes, so personally I use a lighter, more seperating mascara for those e.g. MaxFactor Masterpiece. Overall it's an excellent value mascara given that it's only slightly more expensive than a drugstore offering and the performance is worlds apart. It's the only mascara I've ever repurchased, and I bought another 2 at Christmas as gifts for family (who also loved theirs). It doesn't seem to have a lot of reviews which really surprises me - more people need to give it a go!
