Most Helpful Positive Review Works for My Long, But Fine and Stubborn Lashes
I bought this directly from Colour Pop a few months ago and just got around to trying it out. I was pleasantly surprised with its performance. I have fine, thin lashes, long lashes and rarely hold a curl for more than ten seconds. This mascara does a good job of building up some volume and visibility, but does not help keep a curl. It can clump if I try to add too many layers at once, but I usually do one coat, let it dry, then a second coat. If I feel real spicy, I'll add a third coat after my eyeshadow. The results are good for my every day look. My favorite mascara is the It Cosmetics Superhero lash, but this is a good alternative for when I'm tight on cash.
I'm surprised by the negative reviews because I haven't had problems with smudging or flaking (two things my oily, hooded, down-turned eyes are particularly prone to), but that's makeup for you. Products work differently on different people. I'd say if you are looking for a good bargain mascara, it's worth the try but remember it's just mascara, not magic.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great Lower Lash Line Mascara
This is a nice mascara, but applying it is tricky. I wouldn't bother using it on your top lashes without a waterproof primer because alone it will not hold a curl. It will also flake if applied on the upper lashes, with or without a primer, so contact wearers beware. I didn't test it with a overcoat, so that may be a way around it. I personally use these on my lower lashes and they work great in that regard. I wipe most of the product off wand onto my hand in order to make applying it way easier and it always comes out clump free. If you go in with too much it will clump up immediately. It's slightly water resistant, but if you cry it will most likely be gone once you calm down. That being said, I like these and will continue to buy them (if they don't discontinue them). I don't like to put eyeshadow under my eyes, so adding one of these mascaras really helps give me the oomph I need to the lower lashes. The purple one is my favorite so far. Definitely not as bright and pastel as I thought it would be. More of a mid-toned lavender, but still beautiful!

This product had absolutely no color to it. It was dry and flakey and barely transferred anything to my lashes.
Didn't work for me
Nance from Arizona
Looking for a blue mascar which is hard to find these days. Went on well and love the color, however it wasn't long before it just started to flake off.
Dries out too fast
Noreen from Massachusetts
Pretty colors and good price point initially but waste of money because it dried out in less than 2 weeks and came out super dry and clumpy. So disappointed from such a good brand :(
I really wanted to like this
Laney from Seattle
This is the driest formula I've ever seen. I really wanted to like this. The color is fun but you have to use 3+ coats just to make it visible at all, otherwise it doesn't look like you have any mascara on at all, let alone red, which is what I bought.
Wispy, natural, separated
CaseyD from Atlanta
This mascara is a good option for a "no make up" make up look or for people with light colored eyelashes that just want to add pigment and separation to their lashes. I love this mascara but I have naturally long lashes
Good volume but
aey from Texas
This mascara really lengthens the lashes and has good volume! Unfortunately it smears so much. I wore it for a couple of hours and by the time I went to take my makeup off I looked like a raccoon. This is a bummer because I l❤️ve colourpop!
Cute for everyday wear
Tori from WA
The packaging is super cute, the product itself isn't too thick and doesn't clump. Only thing is that it doesn't curl your lashes.
This was a free gift but I would definitely buy it
faith22 from New York, NY
This goes on really well; not flaky and doesn't take a year and a day to dry.
Much better than more expensive ones.
Would definitely order again

This mascara is so much fun and goes with all different eyeliners and shadows
formula is awesome

pink is good. i also got brown more like black tbh
Jade from Auburn, WA
This is a drier formula of mascara, so the result ends up being a little on the clumpy side, but not to an extreme. I love the brush, although it is on the larger side, it grabs each lash very well.
Adrianna from United States
Dried out fairly quickly and there is no volume.
tangerine from cali
I bought the blue and magenta colors. Blue is subtle and hard to see without light, and the magenta one really stands out, magenta is a little harder to use with looks. It's buildable and take a little bit to dry. Not bad for a color mascara.
Not the best
Adri from Louisiana
I expected more from the brand since they are amazing
Smears no matter what
Ally from Austin, TX
I don't understand this mascara. I do like it for volume but even with a primer on my eyelids, dusting powder on them as well, it still smears. As others mention, it's incredibly hard to remove. Midday I look in the mirror and it's all over my brow bone. I try and wipe it off and it just smears everywhere. Such a bummer.
I would buy it again
Sagittarius Jersey girl from New Jersey
Great product and would recommend it
Love the color
CMigliore from Arizona
I liked the mascara and Teal is one of my favorite colors, after applying the mascara using several layers the color pops and it is awesome. Be wary that you lashes can stick together if you put the mascara on too thick, but I just followed through with a clean wand and separated them. It stays all day and was easy to clean off with my eye makeup remover, no flaking throughout the day.
Clumpy and smudges
Hails from Milford
It is very clumpy and smudges very easily. I'm giving three stars because although there are 2 negatives previously stated the overall size of the mascara is great for the price.
Will NOT buy again
Emsilou from Hollywood
After a few hours it started like running underneath my eyes and then wouldn't come off. It's also extremely clumpy, like I can do clumpy but not that clumpy!
Madds from Minnesota
Ugh it bleeds so much and gets everywhere. I wanted to love it
This is my go to mascara
Megan from Salt Lake City Utah
I love this product it's amazing
I would buy this again
Ally from Christiana Delaware
I really like the applicator on this mascara.
Lucy Cable from Philadelphia, PA
amazing mascaras that separates, and adds wonderful volume to your lashes! didn't even have to use falsies after apply this, it's magic!
TJ from San Diego
I like the true brown color of this mascara. I dont wear mascara on my lower lashes so I didn't notice any smudging nor flaking. perfect shade for warm summer looks.
Very clumpy and disappointing
AlyCat from Springfield
Bought this for the red color on my eyelashes, but alas... It is incredibly clumpy and is like trying to put dried out mascara on your eyelashes. It only really worked on the lower lashes oddly enough.
Every swipe on the top lashes just got more and more clumpy because the product woul stay clumped on the wand, and doesn't coat the bristles themselves like other mascaras.
