Essential and reliable mascara -- I've tried many along the way including Chanel Le Volume that wears and looks best on me and most recently the greener brands (Lily Lolo). With the Defincils there is no smudging, it's easy to remove with eye makeup remover and stays put. And I love the brush.

Amazing mascara! It never clumps except for small chunks every so often (but they are easy to brush out) and is super defining. It does not add any volume, however. I have the waterproof and it does not smudge in any condition. I've cried, skiied, and taken a shower (super steamy and rinsed my face with no soap) and it did not run!

Very average - gives length and defintion - does not hold the curl + smudges badly.
Too expensive for a 'supposed' hight end mascara.

HOLY GRAIL! The first one I grab 95% of the time for everyday use.

This review is for the regular, not the waterproof. I never use water proof mascaras(lash destroyers) I've used this for around 15 years off and on. I've tried so many others I couldn't even begin to count them. Right now I have about 6 new ones on their way to try and a drawer full of ones I don't like for one reason or another. The search remains for a dupe that is an actual dupe. I have yet to find one.

Love the brush, it is amazing. I save the wands and wash them, then use them to apply cheaper mascaras that give me more volume. Love the formula, never flakes, no dark circles under the lower lashes, no smudges when applying and my lashes never break off, they grow when I use it and are super healthy. I know it does not give you huge volume or length, it is a very natural looking mascara. I can use 2-3 coats and get a fuller look but for everyday, I am fine with just one coat. Sometimes I use CILS Booster under it for a fuller look, other days I don't because it is so gentle on my lashes I will use it alone. It washers off like a dream with my Philosophy Purity, no need to struggle, unlike Lancome Hypnôse Drama which I like but stings and burns my eyes and is hard to remove.

If you like long, thick, volume building mascaras, you probably will not like this. If you like quick, foolproof application that lasts all day, nourishes your lashes and gives you some color and fullness with a little curl, you should love this. The one thing I do NOT like is the price. No mascara should be $27.50, especially when I like to replace it every 8 weeks for sanitary reasons. But it's popular and lots of women love it, like me, so they know we will cringe and pay it. You do not need to replace it every 8 weeks, that's just my goal but I've gone longer and gotten 4-5 months from it.

I received a sample of this mascara.

I'm not a huge fan. The mascara does not hold curls well, and within 30 seconds of applying this, I can see them straightening out a bit, and the original curl is mostly undone.

However, it is very lengthening, and it does not smudge or flake on me.

I decided to try this mascara based on all the good reviews. For reference, I have medium length lashes.

There are 2 things that I need in a good mascara - that it can hold a curl and it doesn't smudge. Because of the length of my lashes, lengthening is not at the top of my list. Unfortunately, this mascara did not meet my needs. I didn't hold a curl for long and it started smudging after a couple of hours (I work a regular 8 hour work day, I need mascara to hold up at least that long). I tried to pair this with the Cils primer and that was a bust. Anyway, I'm bummed, because I really wanted to like it. But truthfully, I've had drugstore mascara perform wayyyyy better.

My favorite mascara. i try others, I even get the white filler with black top coat mascaras to bling em out, but when I want a classic - wide-eyed - beautiful look...I always come back.

Used a sample of this mascara. One of the wetter mascaras I've used. Because of the wetter formula, it doesn't hold curl that well. Smudging/flaking is very good. No flakes. Smudges even less than some of the waterproof mascaras I've used.
Doesn't clump and pretty lengthening.
Overall, in my "like" pile because it literally does not smudge at all, but will not repurchase because not holding a curl is a deal breaker.

This was my HG mascara in the nineties and early 2000's, but now compared to other more robust offerings, it seems anaemic. It does build nicely, and lengthens well. But I cannot get the thickness I desire and it takes 2-3 coats to get the length I would like. I bought a tube recently thinking it might be better than what I have been using over the last few years, but it's not as good.
