My first waterproof mascara! How did I live 35 years with washable, smudgy, smeary raccoon eyes?! It lengthed, volumized, and darkened enough that I looked like I had mascara on and came off easily with Clinique's eye makeup remover. I want to find another waterproof mascara with a little more WOW factor so I'll try some others, but I'll come back to this if I don't find something better. Wait until it goes on it's frequent 40% off offer at RiteAid and give it a whirl so you can experiment for a few dollars.

This has become my go-to mascara. It holds a curl like a dream,which is hard with Asian lashes. It stays put-to be honest,it's a pain to remove without eye makeup remover,none of my face washes have ever gotten this off. it's nice and dark and gives me decent length and volume. It's not amazing;people won't ask if you're wearing falsies,but it's incredibly efficient for a killer price. when i want more oomph i'll layer a lengthening mascara over it,but i'm hoping to eventually find a drugstore product that can hold my curl like this and give me drama.

My first waterproof mascara. Back then i didn't know about clumpyness but I do remember not liking this mascara because whenever I put it on I always saw a black glob or line in my peripheral vision. I thought all mascaras globbed on like that. Plus I didn't know the existence of waterproof eye make up remover back then and remembered using tons and tons of my mother's estee lauder eye make up remover to "remove" the mascara. After that I did not like mascara and did not use mascara again unless it was for special events. After trying some other brands of mascara in my last year of high school i realized not all of them was not has bad as this one.

Whenever I run out of mascara and don't want to spend more money on Maybelline Full n' Soft, I always buy this mascara. It stays on all day without budging or smearing and gives good volume and curl. My only complaint is I prefer the black-brown shade and haven't been able to find that for months since Wal-mart carries the Jet Black shade only now.

I just needed a generic waterproof mascara for nights I go out or sweaty days- it holds up fairly well and rinses off easily with my face wash and make up remover and is dirt cheap so lippies for that. I find it pretty clumpy/messy, though, and not particularly thickening or defining for my straight long Asian lashes. Holds my curl better than nonwaterproof mascara, but still not the prettiest effect.

Even though it was "waterproof" it kept on smudging, even when my eyes made no contact with water or my hand. :(

THIS MASCARA IS AWESOME. You may think it looks cheap and you're gonna get what you paid for, but that is NOT THE CASE. It defines my lashes and does not clump. Great for everyday makeup: doesn't clump or make lashes spidery, defines and darkens them to make them noticeable.

Worst mascara I have ever tried! The price is really good but I got what I paid for. Even though it was "waterproof" it kept on smudging and dripping, leaving me with racoon eyes. Plus, it clumped alot.

This is a good mascara, especially for the price -- I think I payed $1.75 for it. It works well to define my lashes and make them noticeable from beneath my glasses. You won't get much volume or length from this, so for special occasions you might want to go for something else -- but for my everyday needs, this mascara is perfect. This product lasts all day with little to no smudging, holds the curl all day, and removes easily at night.When I purchased this, the formula was rather dry, so I had to dampen it with a few drops of water. But after that, the mascara went on smoothly without clumping. Also, the packaging is a bit messy -- I tend to get mascara all over the mouth of the tube. The brush itself is wonderful, but a touch messy; sometimes I get mascara on my lids. Overall, this is a really great mascara for everyday purposes. I'd recommend this to anyone with a busy schedule who wants a simple look without touch-ups.

This is an okay mascara. It did clump but it does a great job darkening the lashes.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
