This made my eye so itchy. Also ended up smearing all over under my eyes from constantly looking down at my desk.

I got this as a birthday present and it's one of my favorite mascaras!

It makes my eyelashes long and curly and keeps well through the day. I also used it during Theater and stays nicely even with the heat of the spotlights.

I really like its brush too, because it combs my eyelashes really well and gives me a neat and natural look.

I think it's cheap for the quality you get.

Would definitely buy again.

I found a tube of the water resistant formula on clearance at my grocery store. My lashes are short an aren't curly.

This mascara says it will layer easily and yes it does. The hourglass natural bristle brush is kind of thick but easy to use. At first I felt like it wasn't going through my lashes but it separated well. I applied two coats easily, no smearing, and went out. I had nice length and volume similar to Maybellines's Big eyes and Rimmel Extra Super Lash.

Four hours later I went home an I thought, "My lashes are really soft I'm gong to put another coat on."
Then, the magic happened... My lashes seemed to grow in length and fullness without any clumping, totally dramatic. . I left this on another three hours with no flaking and my curl stayed.
I've had my tube for a month and the formula is as good as new. It removed with my face wash easily.

Two days later I looked for more at CVS and Walgreens, but nothing. I finally found it at Target and bought three. Walmart has it also. I don't know if this is being d/c but, If you find it try it!

I have found THE ONE for my mascara!!!

A little background on different ones I have tried .........I started put with Too Faced Cosmetics mascara called Better Than Sex Mascara (3 sample sizes and one full size)

Then I switched to Benefit cosmetics They're Real Mascara (3 different purchases of this one ). Became my favorite for awhile. Though I usually used a coat of the TF better than sex to fill out.

I also tried some by Loreal (2 coat system) and Maybelline that I took back after 2 or 3 uses.

I found I needed water resistant or water proof so I don't get smudges under my eyes from. I tried several (including TF water proof better than sex mascara ).

Then I tried the water resistant by cover girl called flamed out. This is like using the benefit cosmetics They're Real and TF better than sex without needing the eye lash comb or worry of any clumps or smudges! I have found THE ONE for my mascara!!! I wore it for my surgery. Even with them taping my eyes closed, etc. It still looked great the day after surgery in the hospital. The nurses asked what kind of mascara and I told them. So, if you are looking for a mascara to try...I highly recommend cover girl's Flamed Out!

really surprised at how much i liked this!!

i have only been using mascara with the little nubbly rubber wands for years now. this is the first time in ages i've gone back to the old school bristle type wand. HOWEVER... the shape of this one is completely unique and really does work. it helps fan your lashes out to either side, and really works to separate them.

this formula builds very easily and sticks to lashes well, much better than the big orange tube CoverGirl i had been using for several years before. much better volume with this one. the only thing that's not quite as good is staying power. the orange tube CG would literally last two days if i didn't take it off. this one is always a bit smudged the next morning if i leave it on. lasts throughout the day, though, which is good enough for me!

I tried it in brown and thats all it does is color your lashes brown. No volume. No length. No nothing. Just brown mascara in an annoying designed tube..

I wasn't really a fan of this one. It gave my super fine lashes a decent amount of volume and length. However, the problem was that it flakes/smudges like crazy. I always had raccoon eyes by the end of the day. It wasn't so bad that I immediately gave up on it but I wouldn't buy it again.

I'll start out by saying I dslike ALL Cover Girl cosmetics. Anyone in high school in 1980 could probably surely relate.

I knew when I bought this mascara that I'd probably regret, and of course, I did. I must say I am kind of shocked Cover Girl hasn't stepped up their game.

So why did I bother knowing all of this?? I was looking for a BROWN colored mascara. Not blackish brown, not brownish black, but a true brown. So, I schlepped over to my local Walmart and headed directly to the L'Oreal isle, as I think they make the best mascaras. Yes they have their duds, but also some winners (Voluminous). Anyhoo.....woudn't you know, not one of the gazzilion mascaras they have came in brown. Hmmm.....m'kay. So....since I was pretty impressed with Rimmel's Wow, I checked out what other mascaras in that brand - again, zilch in brown. I went to every brand, last of course the Cover Girl aisle, which I just generally steer clear of, as well as Maybelline. But wouldn't you know - the ONLY brand - Cover Girl - had a true brown mascara. Just my luck. And ONLY in this 'flamed out' version.

I tried this 2 times, and all I can say is...UGH. I have naturally long lashes, and it did indeed make them appear EXTREMELY long, but stuck them together to give that spider legs look I sooooo detest. No volume. In fact I lost volume due to it sticking my lashes together and making them look sparse.

I wanted to try a brown mascara since I heard of the 'minking' technique and wanted to try it out. This mascara is going back. I won't even keep it for everyday wear at the office - its just not even appropriate for that, as I thought I looked kind of clownish.

The price: $5 plus change, so cheap, but not worth the horrible look
packaging: just screams 'TACKY', but I generally don't discount for the looks of packaging - so long as the product meets my satisfaction.

The only good thing I will say is that it washed off fairly easily with my coconut oil soap.

This most definitely is THE WORST mascara I have ever used.

I got this mascara as a birthday gift and just opened it. The formula is already dried out, which makes no sense since it was perfectly sealed until today. I tried it out and it still somewhat works, but is barely any better than the mascara I'm currently using.

I have small eyes, so the brush is too big for my lashes. The shape is like an hourglass, but that only makes it more difficult for me to reach all my lashes.

It's a standard product, but I'm only keeping it since it was a gift.

EDIT: The formula was already dried when I opened it, and now I can't even pretend it works anymore. I threw it out. Reduced from three to one lippies.

This is the only waterproof mascara I have ever tried that completely destroyed my curl, not to mention the brush makes it impossible to get the bottom lashes. Needles to say it went straight to the trash.
