Most Helpful Positive Review The best mascara I've found!
I have tried so many mascaras in my search for something that would not clump or flake on me! This is the one. It creates natural looking full lashes without "spider legs" or clumps, no lash comb needed. For those that don't like the ball tip on the applicator, try holding it vertically to get those tiny lashes. I hope this mascara stays in ELF's lineup for a LOOOONG time!
Most Helpful Critical Review ugh
I really wanted to love this. The application is smooth, and I loved how the rounded tip of the brush got to lashes that otherwise might not get covered. However, I had the worst time when it came to removal. I tried three different products to remove it, including a waterproof makeup remover, and NOTHING took it off. All it did was get gummy and flake, which continued to get in my eyes the next day! I tried it a second time, thinking I had overreacted, but no. Again, three different removal products, and nothing worked. It did get gummy enough that I could pick it off with my fingernails.

I bought this on a whim because I had heard good things about elf mascaras, & this did not disappoint! It adds a lot a length & a little bit of volume. I have naturally long & curled eyelashes, & this makes them look like doll lashes. Normally I go for more natural/lengthening mascaras & not volumizing (the elf lash extension is great for natural lashes!). The end of the brush is nice to get the inner corner lashes. I haven't worn it on my bottom lashes, but it is a little hard to get off with just micellar water & hasn't really flaked off. I also don't curl my lashes so I don't know if it holds a curl. It can be just slightly clumpy & messy when putting it on, but overall, it's a solid mascara. Would definitely buy again!
I like it!

This is a pretty good mascara. It doesn't clump, flake and it's easy to remove. I would repurchase it.
Absolutely does the job
gintai from United Kingdom
Tried many brands but never bought the same mascara for second time. This one though, already bought 3 in a row as I love it so much!
Using every day, never caused any irritation and always making my eyes pop as lashes looks like after lash extensions. Love, love
Best mascara I have ever used, and the least expensive!

No cons whatsoever
Great once you figure out how to use it
Angelica SK from New York, NY
I used to hate this mascara but now that I've figured out how to apply it works amazing. Great separation, my lashes look thick and beautiful, and I only need one coat to get the effect i want. The key for use (for me at least) is to make sure there is not too much product on the wand. I get as much off in the container as possible and then take a lint free paper towel and wipe off the excess on the wand and go in on my lashes. I find that one coat is perfect and not heavy. Really as good as my high end mascara now that I've figured it out!

First of all, I'd like to say that the tubing style has not been an issue for me at all (a lot of people complain about having trouble removing it). Just hold a wet towel against your eye for a few moments and it will come off fine. Secondly, I love the shape of the wand. The little knob at the end is great for creating a winged look, as well as reaching the difficult areas below and in the inner corners of your eyes. My only fault with this product is that it clumps. Not as much as my old mascaras, but enough where you might have issues. Overall I really like this mascara, you just have to apply it very carefully.

I bought this about 2 or 3 months ago I've only used it about 4 times because the formula is really sticky and whenever I close my eyes/ blink my eyelashes stick together.

I love this mascara for my bottom lashes.
Heavenbound from FB, Fl
I have very long lashes. For years I've used Lancôme and Estée Lauder. No more! The tip of this brush separates and gets the small wispy lashes normally left behind! I'll never buy expensive mascara again
Adilene from Arizona
I've struggled to find a good mascara for me and I honestly love this so so much. If you're a fan of the natural look like I am, then this is for you. It doesn't clump eyelashes together or make them look caked. It is one of those that leave a couple mascara marks on your face so be careful but super easy to clean up!
Blaze929 from Corbin ky
This is a product I try to keep stocked, in my makeup bag. I've been using this mascara for about 4 years. I LOVELOVELOVE the wand, but I think the formula has changed since the last few times I've bought this. I've had to add a few more coats with the latest tube I bought. Great for sensitive eyes, non-drying, doesn't flake or clump.

Worst mascara ever
Surprised at average rating
alexapocalypse from Santa Fe
This is my favorite mascara so was a little surprised at the 3 star rating. To each their own, I guess.
Surprisingly bad mascara
Lologirl from Olympia, WA
Normally, e.l.f. products are awesome. However, I just bought this mascara, and I don't like anything about it. It takes several applications to coat lashes; the wand is unwieldy; it takes a long time to dry; and it absolutely does NOT plump up lashes. Do not buy this.
My favorite mascara of all time
Nemms from Fort Worth, TC
This is the only mascara that I will use. All of the stores around me stopped carrying it, so I just stock up online!!!
I like the idea but..
Sid7777777 from Ontario.
I got this recently and I actually hate it which is weird because I'm so obsessed with elf. It's so sticky and uncomfortable once it's on. Hard to work with and get the look you want. First time being disappointed by elf.
Best affordable waterproof mascara
Auburn from Seattle
This mascara has performed better than all the expensive brands I have tried. I work in surgery and have never been able to wear mascara with my mask and not have raccoon eyes at the end of the day. I know a lot of people on the reviews find this product difficult to remove. The secret is using warm to hot water on whatever pad you are using to remove. The heat loosens the bond and it comes off with ease. I now have several tubes for my vanity, purse, and locker at work. Thank you ELF! Maybe we could have a brown option as well? Please? :)
Easy Removal, No smudging
Rachel27 from California
I bought this mascara a few years ago and it has been the only mascara in my makeup kit since. It doesn't run when it gets wet, I have never had a single flake, and removal is the easiest ever! I have cried all day and it still doesn't budge! REMOVAL: when I remove it all I have to do is get it wet and gentle pinch my lashes and it comes off. I find it easiest to remove in the shower. Note that your mascara needs to be very wet to remove it. Don't try to rub and pull at it to get it off. The best part is if they get wet during the day and I don't touch my eyes the mascara will simply reset itself and be good for the rest of the day.
Does Not Smudge or Flake
Anastasia_Beaverhausen from undisclosed
The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because it does take some work to get it off. However, that's how you know this stuff is going to stay put ALL DAY. I have other E.L.F. Mascaras (not to mention countless other brands as well) and after a couple hours, due to my super oily skin, I have raccoon eyes...not with this one. So maybe a few lashes fall out before you really learn the removal process, but your lashes fall out naturally anyway and grow back, so it's all good. Overall, great mascara.
kristin15 from St. Paul, MN
Don't listen to the complains about it being difficult to remove. I literally use hot water and whatever face wash I'm using that day and it comes off just fine. I love that it turns into a solid and comes off as that rather than turning back into a liquid mess. I believe that's what makes it flake less. This mascara does a great job and is a great price! It doesn't get clumpy. It separates lashes really well.
Ayeshah from Fayetteville NC
I have long lashes but they are crazy. They curl in different directions and all but this mascara is A1. I thought I had a favorite but this one takes the cake. when I find a bomb mascara I stick with it and I'm sticking with this one now
Jupiter from Madison Heights VA
its so hard to get off, other than that, its an amazing mascara
Labgirl74 from Roselle, IL
A good mascara for the price if your lashes do not need a lot of help with thickening.
Terrible, Absolutely TERRIBLE
nrrro from tx
I bought this in a hurry, bought it in a hurry, and had used elf skin care, and it wass hard to get off. amazing, so i trusted this brand. The mascara clumps. it flakes. It tears lashes. its hard to get off. My biggest lashes have fallen out because of one coat.
