Me passing a sale in the cosmetics department is like Kim Kardashian passing a chance for a selfie - it can't be done. I'll gladly live on ramen for the rest of the week in order to take advantage of a sweet sale.

As with anything else you pay your money and you take your chances. Sometimes you find a HG, sometimes it ends up in the shoebox of shame in the back of a bathroom cabinet.

It doesn't take more than one or two uses to see why this mascara was 75% off. Definitely one for the shoebox.

Typical blister pack. The usual black tube wide in the middle like me. Volume and length? Meh. I tend to go for heavy and dramatic with mascara. But usually nothing my trusty metal eyelash comb can't handle.

This is where the trouble starts. With this one you have to be fast with that comb - once it dries it flakes off with that comb. Badly. Doesn't hold a curl either.

It's waterproof in the sense it does stay on your lashes. It just all migrates to outer corner of your lashes and literally balls up. Lashes stuck together with balled up mascara on the ends. Not a good look. Thankfully it does come off easily with soap and water.

One lippee for having my preferred bristle brush. One more for being an ok black and not too wet or dry

This is quite possibly the worst mascara I've ever tried. The brush doesn't pick up product - it reminded me of an almost empty mascara, even though I just opened it. The brush also spread out my lashes in the most weird and freaky angles, which I tried to comb through with a regular comb, but this mascara goes directly in the trash.

This mascara is good. It gives me volume and lengthens my lashes. This was a gift from someone so I don't know the price. it does a good job even when I don't curl my lashes they tend to curl up a little after I apply this. Clumping... I have not experienced that at all. Overall I'd say it's a decent product, I don't understand the low ratings, but maybe I got a good one out of the bunch.

I originally bought the non-waterproof mascara and I didn't use it right away but started using it after a few weeks to layer on top of my other mascara. I liked the large applicator wand but noticed that the mascara was already clumpy. I thought maybe I just got an old mascara or maybe it was because I didn't use it right away. So, I repurchased this mascara again (which was a mistake) this time in the waterproof. The mascara is still dry and clumpy and it literally is brand new. I like the sleek packaging and the large wand but the formula of this mascara is bad. I wouldn't recommend this mascara. The Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express is my holy grail drugstore mascara and I would get that instead!!

Thick lashed girls beware. If you are someone like me who has long but thick lashes that tend to wing out, this product totally misses the shot. When I bought it I had heard so many amazing things about it, and so I unbearably excited. The minute I got home I tried it at hated it. Here's why. (1) The brush is HUMUNGOUS and makes life so hard when trying to apply. (2) Because of the massive brush, clumps attack you. I had so much clumps and my lashes would form little gangs and stick together no matter what. (3) It doesn't wash off, I know it's waterproof, but it doesn't budge when trying to wipe it off, but falls off just when u scratch your eye.
Overall I find this product a total miss.

HG Mascara right here! If you find that most mascara do nothing for you in the sense that it can't hold a curl for a minute and does nothing noticeable for you please try this mascara out! I can't wrap my head around all the negative reviews.Ever since I was a teen, mascara had always been one of those products that didn't seem necessary bc I couldn't see a difference.. yes my lashes were a bit darker and a little longer but they would always be stick straight even if had curled them prior to application. I've tried lots of highend mascaras too, dior, benefit, too faced, stila, nars etc but none were remarkable or significant in any way. Behold this mascara... yes it's waterproof maybe harder to take off then others (i always use waterproof for my stubborn lashes though) but damn it holds a curl! through cries of happiness or sadness, the curl is still there! and not only does it hold a curl it gives me length and volume. couldnt ask for more in a mascara! Sometimes I layer on a second mascara-- benefit they're real mascara or this orange rimmel mascara. I'm sure a second layer of the L'oreal one would suffice too. But i'm blown away by this mascara and I'm sticking to it forever.

I asked for another of L'oreal mascara for Christmas but was given the wrong one but figured since it was a gift I thought i'd give it a try.
I HATE this!So glad that I am not the only one that hate this mascara.In terms of wand and formula as the revlon growluscious.
The wand itself is clumpy coming out of the tube so I have to wipe it off before I can use this.Even with wiping I still find this clumps ,flakes and smudges and just looks horrible on your eyelashes just stay away.If the label didn't say water proof I wouldn't buy it since the whole point of waterproof is to avoid most of those issues.

This mascara gives me lift volume separation and staying power. It never has clumped on me. It is difficult to remove but it certainly withstands my watery allergy eyes.

This product was so dry, even when first applying it, so it clumped and flaked like crazy. It gave me good color and OK length, but it just won't work.

Oh! I thought I was the only one that didn't like this.
Seriously. Nothing but clumpy lashes. I was very sad. You would be too when you find it doesn't do anything to your lashes.
