WOW! I love this product so much, the primer included, it makes my lashes super long with a nice thickness. Very volumized. I adore this product so much, the more you put on - the more dramatic the look is. I would really recommend this to friends !

This mascara was not good at all. It did not make my lashes look intense at all. However it did separate my lashes a little bit, but it made them look more natural looking instead of giving them any flare. I really didn't like this mascara and I'm sorry I bought it.

This mascara is amazing. Seriously, hand down, best drugstore mascara I have EVER tried.

For me, it holds a curl, and lengthens incredibly well!!! If you can't afford your higher end mascara, or just don't have the time or whatever to go get it, drop by your local drugstore and get this. I buy in "intese black" (it's often sold out at various CVS' in my city)

It would be almost identical to that YSL gold tube if it thickened better/ was more volumizing, and if the damn tube didn't dry out so fast (lasts about a quarter of the time a YSLgold thing lasts for me before drying out)!

The primer helps the mascara go on evenly, and helps lengthen... meaning I really do appreciate the primer!

The packaging is average. It's easy to put on, doesn't smudge, the brush/applicator is decent...

Overall this mascara is a gem in a sea of mediocre drugstore mascaras!!! Staying power is great. Application is easy (applies evenly). Holds a curl. Doesn't clump.

Only minuses:
dried out REALLY FAST (ridiculously so, almost)
For the pace at which is dries out it's almost worth it to just buy the Diorshow or YSL or Lancome, etc., etc.,... it's practically equal. However it really is a fabulous mascara!

i love this mascara. it makes my lashes look longer and blacker. i hate clumping and this gives me the least amount of clumping with the best visual results. girls and guys have asked if my lashes are fake when i wear this mascara. that's how long they look! it's my secret weapon. i've tried mac, dior, benefit, all kinds of more expensive mascara and none of them give me the results i want. oh, and on my wedding day i wore the waterproof version of this and it did not budge!

I love this so much. This has to be the best mascara. It does what it promises so well. The lengthening is perfect. The only one that allows my eyelashes to be seen after all the makeup. I have gone around testing mascaras in shops, and I find every other one so thin as does nothing for my lashes. Only the volumizing does not works, but I put more priority on lengthening. Intense XXL is just right for me.

Hate, hate, HATE this mascara. Messy, clumpy, smudgy; essentially everything I hate about a mascara is bundled into this one.

Gives length and volume without clumping. Not too expensive. Owned one for 9 months and it is still good.

UPDATE: I decided to take 1 lippy off because it does clump sometimes and it does give raccoon eyes. But it still does a pretty darn good job to be a drugstore brand.

Why all the negative reviews? This isn't my first time trying this mascara, however I don't remember the results being this good! I must apply it differently now, but the results are like "WOAH!" This mascara gives nice length and separates well. Not so much on the volume/thickening side, I suppose. The color is basic black, not too dramatic but black enough and the primer isn't bad. I don't know what others are doing that they are experiencing so many problems. I haven't worn it all day yet to give a review but if anything changes, I will update. LOVE.
