I bought this while on vacation. The photos that were taken of me looked like I had no mascara on at all. It did not lengthen or thicken and apparently wore-off very quickly and smudged. I threw it in the garbage.

Well this just goes to show that mascara is a very subjective thing. some people will love certain ones and others will hate that exact same product others love. I think this is one of the best mascara's I've tried. I've tried tons, Dior, YSL, Shu, Benefit, all the maybellines, all the L'oreals, you name it, I've tried it. There is absolutely no clumping, amazing definiton and lengthening. I love the comb. Very dramatic, didn't flake, a great product. Can't beat the price too! Take a look at the pic in my profile. Amazing stuff!

I go for lengthening over anything else. This gave good length and seperation - by that I don't mean "spidery" just long and whispy. Walgreens had it on sale buy one get one free, so it was a good deal. In a pinch and on a budget it's not a bad find - if you're not looking for fake clumpy drama. You can get coupons too, for the price - it's worth a try :)

I agree with Katy24. This didn't do anything. NADA. Usually I will just use something I don't like to finish it, or almost finish, this is so bad, I just tossed it. It doesn't do anything.

I am a fan of every Rimmel mascara I've tried - my favorite is volum'eyes. I like the mascara's with the comb applicator, but this one was comb-ish, and it was just very blah.

This mascara surprised me. I'm not a fan of Rimmel's mascaras in general but I saw this one in a magazine and just had to have it! This is good mascara. The comb through wand was very easy to use and the colour was excellent. With my short, brown lashes I'd given up on getting length and decided to concentrate on getting volume. I achieved this with this mascara. It thickened, lengthened and worked well with my natural curl. My only caveat is that it flakes abit so I usually go over it with Avon Defining Lengths but I would definitely buy this again.

Another great let-down in my search for my HG mascara....This is so not lash maximizing! The funny brush in this one is really no better than your typical spooly. And the formula is pretty poor. It is thinner than most mascara formulas and it got really clumpy by the time I was able to build up to the thickness I like. Meh - I don't think I'll finish the tube....

the wand is a 'comb' mascara but is more like a hair brush with 3 rows of teeth! but dont be put off as its great to apply.I used this in black when it first came out and liked it, and now its available in extreme black i think its great, you need to use a fair bit if you want your lashes to really stand out alot, but its worth it because it doesnt clump and looks really feathery and nice.

i'm torn on this mascara...it has good qualities and bad qualities. i'll start w/the good: great price and availability, rich black color, very non-clumping, minimal flaking and no smearing. the brush is very innovative and actually does work well for lash seperation and coating. it's a plastic stick with about 3 rows of very thin and pliable bristles at the end that hold the product. the comb actually reminds me of the old Barbie combs you used to get w/your Barbie dolls! one thing that i love about the brush is that it grabs and darkens your lashes right down to the root, and for a person like me who has blonde eyelashes that's very exciting! when you first open the mascara and pull out the wand, it looks like there is way too much product on the comb and you're tempted to wipe it off before you apply, but don't! even though it looks overloaded, there is the perfect amount of product already there. you just comb through your lashes until they're to your liking and you're set. now for the bad points: for my lashes, this mascara doesn't do much in the volume building department. it helps somewhat, but definitely not what i'd expect from a mascara that's advertised for giving extreme volume and false-looking results. i would categorize the finished look as regular daytime lashes, darkened and defined but nowhere near enough volume or drama for going out at night. this mascara also kills the curl i've put into my lashes, i'm not sure if it's because the formula is too wet or because of all the combing you need to do to get your lashes the way you want them, but when i'm finished i have no curl. that is a very big dissapointment to me because i like my lashes curled straight up (i know, a big-time makeup no no!) so they look their longest. lastly, since the applicator has longish plastic teeth on it, i find myself getting quite a few black dots around my eyes from bumping into my skin w/the bristles. we all know what a PITA that is when you've spent an eternity getting your e/s or e/l just right and then you have to grab your q-tip and start cleaning up mistakes! anyways, this is definitely not a bad mascara, but also not one i'd pick up again. **EDIT** a quick note, i have found that this mascara actually works well as long as you absolutely do NOT use the wiggle method. doing the wiggle that i usually do w/all mascaras will make this one clump and look like crap, but if you just ease the comb into the base of your lashes and sweep straight up multiple times, you're good to go and it looks nice. i would probably even purchase again if i wasn't insanely obsessed with mascara and unable to stop buying thousands of tubes ;D

Great applicator!! This mascara can make the flimsiest lashes appear so long - and the applicator/brush is the best. I love that this doesn't flake off onto my cheeks all day long and that you really have to work hard to get this to clump - I love this and have given it as little gifts to my sisters. How can you not for this price?? It comes off with my eye makeup remover so it's not difficult to remove - I just can't find anything NOT to like. I only wish it was made in a navy shade to help the whites of the eyes appear a tad whiter. But I will keep buying this mascara!!
