The one I have is get up and grow Extreme Length in waterproof...and is neither lengthening nor waterproof. Does nothing for my lashes except make them black....and smudge under the eyes. Very dry, yet messy due to the size of the brush. An all around fail, one of the worst mascaras I've used in a long time

Love this mascara! My eyes are sensitive and I have eye allergies so I use this mascara to be safe. Tried so many others and always come back to this. :) It lengthens my lashes and stays on all day. Never a problem with this mascara! And can always find it in most stores!

I love this mascara! I bought it on a drugstore whim and I am really happy with it - plus it is a third of the price of my Clinique mascaras. I have been using it with RapidLash serum and at times the Physicians Formula eyelash enhancing pen eyeliner and I have really seen lash growth results and possibly thickening (not sure if this is attributed to any of them or all of them).

+ The mascara is a lovely formula either way and I find it quite waterproof, lengthening, thickening and separating (and it looks great after curling), great price

- The spooly/wand is my only criticism, it is so huge and bushy it often gets on my upper eyelid right along my lash line, not too big of a deal but I would prefer it about half the size

This may be my favourite mascara formula ever.

I always like to try new mascaras. Saw this at Walmart and thought I would give this a try. First of all, the brush on this mascara is pretty big which always makes applying it to my hooded eyes difficult. I only used this once but I think I was satisfied with the look I achieved. I don't usually judge a mascara after one use. Sometimes the formula gets better as you use it and it dries out a little.

I had applied this mascara with my complete makeup look for the day and then I went outside on a mildly windy day in November. My eyes watered a little bit and when I looked in the mirror I had black mascara water all over and my eye makeup was ruined. This mascara is not the least bit waterproof. So I'm afraid to use it again. Very disappointed.

I've heard emilynoel83 rave about this mascara, so when I saw it on sale for $4 I had to buy it. I have very straight lashes, so finding a mascara that could hold a curl is very important to me. Usually, this limits me to only wearing waterproof mascara. The formula for this mascara is okay. It's not too wet nor too dry. It lengthens, but it doesn't provide any volume. For me, that's just fine since it never claimed to give volume to my lashes anyway.

There is slightly smudging when I wear this, but it's minimal and may be partially caused by my eye shape. My curls hold all day. The only reason I didn't give this five lippies is because I haven't tested if this is really waterproof yet. Love it though.

EDIT: Upon further use, the smudging has increased. I have oily lids, so that may be the cause. I'll finish this product, but after this I'm looking for a new mascara again.

This is a good, basic daily-wear mascara for people with thick lashes and sensitive eyes. It has a good black-brown shade and is waterproof like it says without being irritating or flaky. I wouldn't use it for special events perse because it doesn't do that "special effects" big curl that some mascaras do, but it like it for daily wear!

This mascara did not hold a curl well for me. It clumped easily too.

I heard some good things about this mascara and I wanted to try a waterproof mascara for winter time because my eyes water the minute I go outside so my mascara starts running... so sad!

Smell: It smells like regular mascara, but a bit stronger than the other mascara I own. It smells similar to Bare Escentual's Buxom mascara. It's not bothersome at all.

Feel: I liked the way it feels on my lashes - it's kind of soft and gentle to the touch. You know how your lashes can get crunchy from some mascara? This one didn't do that.

Problems: All in all, it's alright. It did a semi-respectable job of holding the curl in my VERY STRAIGHT lashes buttttt they fell down AND made me look like a raccoon within a few hours!!! I was pretty annoyed because none of the other non-waterproof mascaras I own did that... and the one I tried for waterproof is the only one that flaked. I was irritated. I do have oily eyelids and I did apply more than one coat, so that could very well have been the problem. But I saw someone else mention it flaked and they have oily eyelids so maybe it just doesn't work well with oily eyelids? It's decent but you can probably find something better and at the same price or less.

Not waterproof on oily skin, it migrated under my eyes after 3-4 hours of wear and gave me raccoon eyes. Formula way dry but I found it had lots of small bits/clumps of mascara that stuck to my lashes that I had to comb out.

Love it! Waterproof - or at least sweatproof; it smudges in the shower - and doesn't clump! The brush is fantastic for such a price. The only complaint is that it doesn't do what is advertised, which is grow your lashes, but hardly any product would be able to achieve such a miracle, and my hopes were pretty low anyways. Overall, would definitely buy again!
