Most Helpful Positive Review My new holy grail!
I'm not a mascara person or much of a reviews person. I read them, but I don't really write them unless I find something worth writing about. I usually stick to either Lancome's waterproof formula (if I need that) or Better Than Sex/Perversion (Too Faced/Urban Decay) for mascara. I tend to use high-end mascaras because the drug store ones are more clumpy. I have very thin, medium-blonde colored lashes. They practically disappear. I also have tiny eyes so I sometimes find that brushes that are too big/bulky are harder to use or get everywhere in the process. I got a trial size of this from Tarte's website when I ordered the Unleashed palette and just threw it on - honestly because the package was hot pink and I thought why not. I was BLOWN AWAY. It has done for my lashes what no other mascara has. One coat, top to bottom, the big fluffy brush took over every last. They're separated, look fuller and longer. I can't wear fake lashes but I feel like without that messy tubing mascara this is the closest thing to false lashes I've ever used and I LOVE IT. It's seriously my new holy grail. I'm only writing this review because I was about to purchase the full size from Ulta and saw some negative comments so wanted to throw in my two cents because I am sorry it didn't work out for those that it didn't work for but for me it's absolutely beyond amazing.
Most Helpful Critical Review Big Ego is Really All Its Got
This mascara is appropriately named because it thinks it's a lot better than it is. Took three coats to do the job other mascaras at this price point do in one. I seriously couldn't believe it's advertised as a "big lash" mascara. Lengthened only a tiny bit and did very much volume. And four hours after application, it had pulled all the curl from my lashes. And the brush is so big at the tip, you can't get it into the corners to do small lashes. I'm giving it to my daughter because she barely wears any makeup and this light formula MIGHT work for her. And I'm not sure about that. For this performance, don't waste your money. Maybelline Great Lash will do the exact same thing for six bucks - probably better.

I love this mascara, but I wish they had a waterproof version, because I have watery eyes. I think it looks fabulous on, because it goes on the lashes so nicely, you don't need much. My lashes stood out with this mascara. I will repurchase.

I love the way my lashes look when I use this mascara! My lashes look full, and they don't look like spiders! Excellent Mascara, will buy again!
Maria from TX
The mascara is really nice and not clumpy for me although a tiny bit will end up under my eyes at the end of the day. It is now my go-to mascara and one I definitely recommend to others.

I was super excited to use this product. I like how it looks at the beginning of my day, but by half way through the day it looks like I have raccoon eyes. Would I purchase this product again? No.
I am not going to buy this again
Mascara Girl from Warsaw, IN
I use this as regular mascara to work and for a regular day. By the middle of the day, the mascara has left dark under my eyes. It also clumps when I first put it on. I really don't like the clumps. They fall in to my eyes. I wear glasses so I like to wear mascara.
Jennifer from San Antonio
I have oily skin! No smudging or flaking! No running even if I cry a little! ( I can't wear Nars climax, it's all over my eyes in less than 2 hours)
No fuss brush, comes out clean and ready to swipe on your eyes. You don't have to do a lot of coats. Brush is great for top and lower lashes. Give it a try! I feel this mascara is underrated.
Sara from IL
Was just ok, smudged a bit and clumped
Joliseema from AZ
Always ends up under the eyes by the end of the evening.
Does appear to add volume and thickness to natural lashes.
If you have the slightest of oily skin do not buy
Debbie from OK
I've used it with eyeliner and without to both ensure that it was the mascara that was running and in fact it is it runs all down your face if you have the slightest bit of oily skin don't get it
Length, curl, not a lot of volume
Ceemat from Kentucky
I love this mascara. The brush coats every lash, so lashes stay separated. It keeps my lashes natural curl. It doesn't add the thick, black voluminous look, but makes every lash stand out from base to tip. Looks a lot like the more natural looking lash extensions.
Allie from Ventura, CA
Super voluminous mascara. I was reading the negative reviews and couldn't believe them. Ive tried all mascaras and this is hands down my fave. Lasts all 12 hours through my work shifts.
Love love love
Mickey from California
I tried a trial size of this mascara and fell in love. I would suggest you try it too, to see if it fits your needs before committing to a full size, because it is kinda pricey, but I am sure you will love it just like I did. It makes my lashes long and NOT clumpy..

I don't know why this doesn't have better reviews! I love the brush and it holds my curl.

Volume and drama without looking clumpy. My new fave and I have tried everything.
Girlygirl from Valparaiso
This is my favorite mascara! It separates and extends lash length. It doesn't get thick and clumpy in the tube. It stays on well and doesn't flake.
Asv from Ms
There was no mascara on the wand, no matter how much I tried. It seemed like it was used and Dried up. I'm told I have long eyelashes but this somehow magically made them look shorter...half as long. And flacks all over my face.
Lia from Home
I used to hate it but now I curl my lashes before I use it.
I just don't like how thick the brush is but it works really well now.
I LOVE this mascara! First one that actually looks good!
Chelsea from Topeka, KS
I use one coat of this mascara on both eyes and I am seriously amazed by the volume that I get. I have fair fine and short eye lashes, I have hooded eyes as well, and many mascaras have given me a dark color on my eyelids because the mascara rubs on the hoods of my eyelids, this one doesn't. Seriously 10/10!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this mascara.
Kjo from Barstow, CA
This product makes my lashes look so long and full and it is amazing!
CG from SC
I have such a love hate relationship with this product. When I first got it, I LOVED it. It definitely added lots of volume to my lashes, and kept a good curl in it. However, over time it did dry out. It's become so hard to use, and though it still adds volume, it's become more flaky and I HATE when my mascara flakes.
Smudges every day
Kylie from Pittsburgh, PA
I use this product every day and I've had nothing but problems. It smudges when I am inside without me even touching my eyes and when I'm outside in the cold it melts off. It is actually awful.
Jetsetter from U.S.
I don't think this is a great product... I would describe it as average with an awkward brush.
