I used to use this mascara back in the 70's , and back then, I got amazing length and volume. I'm not sure why, but it seems like this once very loved mascara (like an old friend) went downhill. ...

I have various 'impact' mascara's for nights out, ones that are like BAM! LASHES! This is not one of those. So, if that's what you want do not buy this. You'll be disappointed like so many...

All this does is make your lashes black. That's it. No lengthening. No volumising. Just tint in a bottle basically.

Okay first of all I always get it on sale at either 4 or 5CAD. It is often on sale and it becomes worth it . This has been in my makeup bag since I was 13 ( obviously changed it since but you get...

I didn't like this product at all and I think most of us don't. I bought it a couple of years ago so my memory is kinda foggy about this product. I remember a threw it out the first time I used it....

I don’t understand why this mascara has been on so many lists as one of best mascaras, unless Maybelline has been paying to market this on “best of” lists in magazines for years. It does nothing...

I rarely get it but when I do it always gives me the blackest lashes and also it’s easy to build up. I like the waterproof version really holds up.

It's okay considering the price, but go for a better product by investing a couple more bucks. I have natural black lashes and their clear mascara did better work for me.

Another really awful mascara. This works if you already have full lashes. But if you don’t have any eyelashes do not expect this to work, giving you volume or length. It does not do that. It...

Was using it for a few years but now when I changed the mascara I can tell its not so fab. Barely adds any volume. Not sure if its a brush or formula.

This was my very first tube of mascara, 30 years ago... and I've just recently rediscovered it, and love it! I agree it's pretty basic - I use it as a LASH PRIMER before another, lengthening...

This mascara is worthless, for me anyway. I could never get it to work. It never showed up on my eyelashes, but only underneath my eyes. I am always amazed that anyone chooses this one. There are...

I really don’t understand the love for this mascara. It looks fine, but only lasts about an hour before my undereye area is a black, smudgy mess. It may be cheap, but I still think it’s overpriced.

I like the shape of the brush and the super black pigmentation but that's about it. The formula makes my lashes really hard and stiff. Didn't lengthen, volumize or curl, the only effects it had...

I hated this mascara until they came out with the different brush style. I like the plastic bristle brush, not the original bristly one. However, the formula of this mascara is just so-so. I find...

Since it was reputably one of the brand's best-selling mascara, it's only right to give it a try. But was truly disappointed. Hardly any lifting/curl and volumizing effect. Smudges mid day. Will...
