This mascara is complete rubbish. Just a little comb that combs through your lashes. It does nothing at all!

This is one of my favorite mascaras, definitely. I LOVE the packaging! It gives the lashes I want, no problem. I don't need to spend a lot of time on my eyelashes to get the look I want, which is nice. The only complaint about it, is that it seems to dry out easier than other mascaras I have. It doesn't stop me from buying it again, though. Would recommend it!

I love this mascara. Mostly I just love the brush. I couldn't find it again at the store so I cleaned the brush and used it with a different Rimmel bottle and I love it. It separates my lashes and is perfect for my small bottom lashes.

I have this in black. It goes on smoothly, no smudging, occasional clumping, no flaking. It gives my lashes a very natural look but still holds a curl, so this is the mascara I use when I'm doing simple, everyday sort of looks. The color is a true black, very dark. I don't know if it multiplies my lashes by three, but they certainly look a little longer.

Downside: this mascara dries out really quickly. It's also really difficult to remove, and it always gives me raccoon eyes, no matter how many makeup removing products I use.

I am not a fan of this mascara.

At first I was nervous about the comb applicator. But after I used it, I loved how it separated my lashes. With one coat, I had a very natural look. If I applied more, it became more dramatic. It did not clump, until about after a month or two of using it. I guess it dried out a little or something. It was almost time to get a new tube by then anyway. Overall, great mascara.

For a drug store mascara this was pretty good. I work at CVS so it didn't cost me much to buy. I like the comb but I don't think it lives up to what it claims to do. It made my lased longer but didn't really add any volume at all. If you don't put it on just right it also clumps. But when I did manage to get the application right (takes a little while to get used to the comb) it worked fairly well. I would buy this again as a stand in when I run out of a better quality mascara.

I didn't like this mascara at all! I hate the wand - you have to have it angled just so or you can't apply the mascara. And, it flakes on me after wearing it about six hours. THAT is just not acceptable!

I have a hard time finding a good mascara.Most mascaras clump on my lashes when I use it. I have used pretty much all brands of mascara. I really like the Maybeline xxl,but I like Lash Maxxx more. Because of the brush you will get no clumps AT ALL. It also makes your lashes really long.Mine already are long so it looks really good on mine! I really love my lash maxxx

Just when I've sworn off drugstore mascaras, I try Rimmel Lash Maxxx. What a find! The pink rubber/plastic brush applicator is wonderful for coating lashes down to the roots - and for the first time, I don't need to tint my blonde eyelashes as the brush coats every little lash from root to tip. Don't wiggle the brush, just stroke it over lashes to avoid clumps. The only drawback is that the formula lengthens my lashes dramatically, but doesn't add much volume. It's cheap, widely available, and makes my lashes look just as good as when using Diorshow mascara...but without the hideous constant flaking of Diorshow. I'll definitely buy again! Hopefully they'll expand the color range and add in an eggplant or dark green shade. continued >>

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
