I got a sample of this mascara and really liked it so I bought the normal sized one when I ran out.

It's very volumising, as the name suggests, and really enhances my eyes, especially as I don't have very long lashes (sadly).

My only problem with it is it tends to clump if I put on more than one layer, so I almost always have to get out the eyelash brush to fix that. Also, I don't have the waterproof one and it doesn't last through even a few crocodile tears. As a crier, this is a problem :L

I would recommend it though!

Bought this with the 5 No7 voucher and also using my staff discount of 22.5% so I got this for around 4-5. I'm glad I didn't pay the full price of 11.50.
I can't really think of anything that stands out about this mascara. The brush is pretty standard, the formula is average and that's about it really. This didn't really curl my lashes at all, gave a little volume but it wasn't all noticeable as it made my lashes quite straight and flat. I haven't tried the waterproof version which would probably be better at holding a curl but at the moment I think I'll just stick to my 1.99 natural collection mascara. Packaging is nice and simple which I like, not fussy and over the top, but doesn't make up for the mascara being average.
Would choose a much cheaper mascara over this one that'd do the same if not a better job.

I'm so surprised by the negative feedback on this mascara as I absolutely love it. I used to use Ultimate Curl by 17, but recently it started to make my eyes water so I unfortunately had to change. Bear in mind, I was doing 12+ hour days so finding the perfect replacement was going to be a hard task! I originally intended to get No7's Extreme Length Sensitive, when a friend told me she had an unused sample of this mascara. Germ freak I am, I still cleaned the brush anyway, just to be sure that no one else used it either!

I have to say I love this. I have VERY sensitive eyes and this doesn't make them water at all unless I have 3-4 coats of it. I'm very fussy with mascaras as I have long, curly blonde eyelashes and need a mascara to make the most of them. This mascara delivered what I thought no mascara could - I wound up with china doll-like lashes! I tend to use it on the top lashes only now as my bottom lashes are also very long, and when I apply mascara on them I look like a Lady Gaga wannabe!

It looks good, makes my eyes really pop, it lasted the 12+ hour days and doesn't itch. For those reasons I'm giving it a 5/5. It did smudge VERY slightly on the 9th hour, but considering how it fared against my usual favourite this is hardly a setback. My Ultimate Curl used to itch/hurt my eyes FOUR hours into the day, let alone smudge.

I have found my ideal volume mascara. I will get this again in the No7 3 for 2 offer when this little tube runs out!

I got this as a mini in one of the Boots No.7 Gift Sets. And this is my go-to mascara for a quick and fuzz free application. The brush is one of those old fashioned ones, it holds a decent amount of product and helps cover my lashes easily. I can reach those hard-to-get corners nicely and my bottom lashes ends up visible but not clown like. The mascara goo itself is black, not dark grey or anything like that, and it has a faint clinical smell.


I barely get any clumps and especially no spider-lashes when using this mascara, my lashes end up looking natural and defined. I do NOT get "intense volume" from brushing my eyelashes a couple of times, but I'd guess you'll get it if you keep on applying product long enough. However, I think there is something in it that my eyes are sensistive towards. My eyes get sort of watery and sore when I use this product. Too bad actually, for it is a decent mascara.


This is not the mascara if you want the false eyelashes look, or are looking for something that gives you optimum curl and volume. But it is nice for everyday use, or on those days you want to have the "no make up look". I do not have sensitive eyes, but my eyes still gets a bit runny. So if you easily react towards mascaras, you probably want to avoid this.

The mascara is much more expensive pr. ml than eg. mascaras from Max Factor. I do not think about No.7 as an high end mascara, even though it is more in the Dior range than other drug store brands. But you can usually get it on offers and stuff, and that makes the price reasonable.

I am not at all fussy with mascaras I have quite long curly lashes and most mascaras work. For me I thought this was really exspensive! 13.00!! the brush is really plain, it looks like the sort of mascara wands you get in magazines. I applied probably 5 coats and I tried it for more than a day but its really terrible. Did absouletely nothing. For the effort it took to apply it I may as well of not worn mascara for it gave no results. As always I love No.7 packaging and I usually love all their products but steer clear of this one!! xxx

I love the mascara! I have tried lots of other mascaras and haven't found one as good as this for the price. I have very long lashes, but they are blonde at the tips and quite fine. This mascara coats them nicely and doesn't clump. It makes my lashes look thicker and longer without looking too much. I also like the brush- it is big enough to add volume but has a pointed end to reach into the corner lashes. The only fault I do have with this mascara( and most others that I have tried) is that it rubs off around my eyes sometimes- i have really deep set eyes and oily skin and the mascara sometimes runs on my skin, especially if I am hot.

I think 11.00 is quite expensive for a boots own make mascara, however I buy mine off an auction site and only pay 3.00- bargain!

This is a mediocre mascara. Nothing special, nothing spectacular.
On the positive side, it does not clump and gives medium volume --- but at the end of the day it smudges underneath the eyes.

Cannot even compare it to my new MAC Plush Lash.
Will not repurchase this again, there are waaaay better mascaras out there!

Love this!
My lashes: Small eyes, dark, long, thick, STRAIGHT lashes.

I used it this morning when I couldn't find my other mascara (Ulta Max. Length Soft Curl) after curling my lashes. Oh my!
My lashes weren't LENGTHENED a lot, so I don't know if short-lashed people should use this, but they were thick, dark, luscious...held a curl and all! I added a little zigzag motion on my outer bottom lashes and I had big, beautiful eyes.
It really didn't clump, but I still ran a comb through to assure that the mascara dried evenly on both eyes.

Will def. buy again and I highly recommend!

i really like this mascara! i got it in a swap as an extra and if it weren't for that i know i would have never tried it. first off, it is a nice, dark black color. the texture is perfect- wet enough to be glossy and go on easily but not so wet that it kills your curl. i adore the brush, it is my favorite kind of brush for mascara: very dense, full bristles that are long and placed closely together, slightly tapering in length as they reach the tip. i find that these brushes give you the most thorough, clump-free, voluminous application and are about a million times better than any other kind. the formula feels nice and soft on your lashes and doesn't smudge, flake, or clump. you can layer this many times and never see even a bit of a clump, and THAT is pretty impressive! i love a mascara that you can put on, leave on for hours, and then touch up again by applying a fresh coat w/o creating tons of clumps and a spidery mess. on the other hand, this formula gives nice length but very minimal volume. it leaves my lashes nice and curled, darkened, and slighty fuller, but i would like a lot more thickness. for being called "instense volume" i think the name is a bit misleading. i have found that using one coat of this on my lashes and following it up with a coat of Bourjois Pump Up the Volume mascara gives it the extra boost of volume it needs and results in a really nice, dark, thick but not over-the-top lash look. i think this is a great mascara at a very reasonable price and i would definitely repurchase it. it's possibly one of my favorite drugstore mascaras!

I got this as a sample so can't really comment on price or anything, but I don't think it really did a lot. Just made my eyelashes look normal, think it's about 9.50 to buy in Boots and it's a bit too expensive. Alright for ppl tho that only want a natural look though. :)
