After trying countless mascaras, I have settled into this MAC mascara. It doesn't clump and stays put. I have given up on putting mascara on my bottom lashes as everything migrates. This mascara washes off well without tugging. I have pretty decent lashes to begin with, mainly looking for volume. This fits the bill.

I am loving this mascara! I have tried Clarions, Lancome, They're Real, Dior Show, but find this is the best with the least clumps. I wouldn't use it for over the top sexy lashes, but perfect for everyday and casual nights out.

I am so confused by this mascara. I honestly don’t think this is a tubing mascara because it’s the only one I’ve ever used that when removing it instead of coming off in actual tubes the mascara smears all under my eyes. But... that’s the only time I experience smudging/smearing. While wearing this it is a solid formula that doesn’t flake or smudge and it stays put until I take it off. I just wish it came off like a tubing mascara and was cruelty-free but those two issues aside, I love the skinny wand and how the mascara performs.

I bought this product on one of Sephora's 20% off sale. surprisingly I actually like it. I am extremely picky with mascaras as most smudge on me as I have oily eyelids and there's less than a handful of mascaras I can actually wear and this is one of them. i love the brush as it is small and skinny and can get into the inner corners of my lashes a lot easier. the formula isn't too drying or wet so doesn't weigh my lashes down after curling them, and it holds a curl. but I also apply a primer on before my mascara all the time as well. it is removed easily with makeup remover and had no issues with it. I didn't detect a smell with the formula. I didn't experience any smudging at all either which is a huge bonus. I normally use Estee Lauder zero smudging so will alternate between the 2 mascaras as they are both my top mascaras with no smudging. I would recommend it. I usually use this on my top lashes as I don't frequently wear mascara on my bottom lashes. I think I have messed up bottom lashes that any mascara I apply looks odd because of the way my bottom lashes fall and separate, but will experiment with the bottom ones as other reviewers love it for the bottom lashes. overall, I would repurchase :)

I have lash extensions so i look for lower lash mascaras and this is the best. It doesnt flake, it separates and makes my lower lashes looks good without being crazy clumpy or spidery. Its natural but darkens it also makes it longer. I purchase whenever mac has a sale like 20 percent off.

darkends without clumpping
coats every lash really nicely
super precise brush that i love
easy to use
does not smudge
lower lash lovers dream
natural but also pretty

Doesnt hold curl

Edit- ive switched to PML essence mascara base and Le Volume de Chanel for my mascara routine. Wont be repurchasing because i dont put mascara on the bottom lashes anymore. this one is really good/the best for bottom lashes.

$19 feels ridiculous for mascara - but I’m telling you, this is fantastic!

One coat is natural, two enhances and three competes with the super lash mascaras on the market.

Only this does.not.budge. Until you take it off. Which is easy with a wipe.

The brush is small - which works perfectly for my gray short lashes. No goop upon application. No flakes or smudges under the eyes.

Great for mature ladies with hooded eyes!!!

This is a tough call. I love that this looks very natural, it enhances my lashes enough without looking fake or obvious. The formula is nice, no clumping and it removes very easily with warm water and facial wipe. I usually experience fallout from mascaras, not so much with this. It does a very good job of lengthening and separating. The biggest deterrent for me is the price--The tube didn't last as long as other mascaras and it's hard to justify the price. I'll probably repurchase until I can find a more reasonably priced mascara that performs just as well.

I bought this because of my friend who recommended it to me. She always has really stunning long lashes, and so when I asked her what mascara she used and she told me about this one I immediately went out and bought this. When I first tried it on, I couldn't believe how pretty my lashes look. Now, taking into consideration, I do have naturally long and voluminous lashes, but I was atually asked by three of my friends if I had done eyelash extensions, which to me is a pretty good description of how well it worked on my lashes.

I have since recommended it to other friends and while most of them loved it as much as I do, I do think people with longer and fuller lashes will appreciate more as it doesn't layer that well, so you can't really build up on it as much as you might want to do if you need a little more volume.

Another really good thing is the fact that this mascara won't budge, it never flakes down and ends up under my eyes, and it lasts all day without even the slightest smudge. Also, this looks so beautiful on the lower lashes, so if you like putting mascara on your lower lashes, don't hesitate to buy this, you won't regret it!

I rarely feel compelled to write a review on a mascara because they usually all do one thing on me, without fail- smudge. I have hooded eyes, and every mascara I've tried, yes, including waterproof, has transferred to my eyelid. Except this one. It gives more of a natural look on the upper lashes, but that's okay for my daily use, when I go out I usually wear false lashes anyways. I love this, would totally recommend, and it's well worth the price. An absolute must have for anyone who suffers with transfer or smudging problems!

The BEST for bottom lashes!!! Coats perfectly with one coat, dries quick, doesn’t clump or run. I’ve also tried Clinique, Maybelline and It Cosmetics but this one is the most amazing one!!!
