The wand makes this about impossible to use: the brush is a spiral with very far-set bristles, which makes it so that almost no mascara is transferred to the lashes. I'm not planing to use 5...

I bought this in purple - because I REALLY LOVE coloured mascara and this seemed like a budget option to the Dior ones. Sadly, it did NOTHING for me. No volume. No length. But, I don't give...

I can't believe this is a drugstore cult favorite. It clumps my lashes every time I use it and it is hard to wash off. It also smudges very easily. The wand is nothing more than ordinary and does...

I put some of this on, and looked in the mirror a few hours later. It was so badly smudged that it looked like I had two black eyes. And, considering how easily it smudges and smears, it's...

Just ok, not awful, but I wouldn't repurchase. It smudges a little bit by the end of the day and that rarely happens to me with mascara. It does define more than some other mascaras and gives some...

I have to agree with most of reviewers, I don't think this mascara is worth the hype. It probably has sentimental value for many, since it exists for such a long time, and the packaging is very...

I will never understand the hype for this mascara. It really is a subpar mascara that is good enough if you want to have subtle lashes, but other than that? Hell no, would never buy again. It coats...

Don't get the hype. It was clumpy and smudged. In all fairness many mascaras do smudge on me. I generally use waterproof or tube

It doesn't do anything except make your eyelashes look darker. This was the first mascara I ever bought years ago. I wouldn't even recommend it for a beginner though, just because there's much...

Long lasting, not too wet or dry, best for bottom lashes due to small brush

The rating of this mascara says it all. "Great Lash" only makes my lashes a bit darker- zero length, zero volume, no curl. Maybelline's Lash Sensational is my all-time HG mascara that I repurchase...
