Most Helpful Positive Review Five Stars
I tried this mascara after my usual was discontinued. It was the second I tried following the discontinuation. Normally, I have an AWFUL time finding replacement products--especially mascara and foundation. So many mascaras have flaked into my eyes, worn off after a very short time, etc. Not Buxom Lash Mascara, though. It is the perfect combination of volume and length, withstands the nine hours per day I generally wear it, withstood a nap, and is all around awesome. I did touch it up after taking a nap even though it didn't really need to be, and it didn't turn into a flaky, dry mess even the way my discontinued one that I loved did with touch ups (its only flaw). My lashes look naturally long and voluminous with this mascara. Buxom, PLEASE don't discontinue or change this mascara at all! I will stop my search with this one and use it as long as it's on the market.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good for separating, but not much else
I am always on the hunt for the next mascara. I am an Urban Decay Perversion user but am always willing to try new brands and types. This was recommended by an Ulta consultant so I picked it up. The brush is nice. I don't typically go for plastic bristle brushes but the bristles are super soft. This mascara does separate your lashes really well. Unfortunately there's not enough product on the brush and the formula is somewhat dry and thin. The coverage is just not there for volume or length. Ultimately I use it to separate my lashes for the next application of a better mascara. I will keep the brush, other than that it's not really worth the money.

I love how volumizing this mascara is. It goes on very nicely and looks great. However, I always seem to have an issue with mascara under my eyes by the end of the day. It's hard to know if it's from the mascara itself or due to other causes.
Best mascara ever

Does not bleed under eyes.

Love the wand and brush and the mascara has wonderful, no clump, lots of length coverage. Also, no flaking during the day.
reviewer from New York, NY
Very disappointed with this mascara. Their previous version was so good! My lashes aren't the best, but this mascara makes my lashes look worse. Gives no volume. I get long and stubby lashes to the point where I wonder if it's making my lashes fall out. I may be allergic to an ingredient in this formulation. I gave it a solid week and now it goes in the trash.
I would not buy this again

Best Mascara Ever!

I absolutely love this mascara. I have been using it for years and it never disapoints.

A solid staple in my bag. It gives great volume without globbing up. Also great with falsies!
The search is over!
Brightstar 79 from York, PA
I have been searching for years for a mascara that doesn't make my eyes hurt and feel dry. I received a sample of this through Ulta and thought, I'll give it a try. I couldn't believe it, no pain, burning, dry feeling at all and it looks amazing after I curl my lashes! Thanks to Buxom my makeup is finally complete!
Length & volume!

This is my favorite mascara, absolutely love it, goes on smooth and washes off with ease!
FranA from NY
I am always trying new mascaras, this is my new favorite. Doesnt clump, the brush is big but i like big brushes.
Not much of anything
Krissy from Providence, RI
Only darkens and separates. I saw no volume or lengthening with this mascara. I'm surprised it has good reviews! Maybe it's ppl that have long lashes already, because mine are short and straight and it did not do much at all. There are better drugstore options out there tbh.
I liked it
Babydoll from Seattle
Good formula and decent brush. I'm looking for a perfect mascara, though! I want that perfect balance of separation and volume and this one didn't quite fit the bill.
Great everyday mascara
KT from IL
This is probably one of if not my favorite non-waterproof mascara. I love the brush - it really helps to evenly distribute the mascara and not make it clumpy. It's not a mascara I would personally use if I want a more glamorous look, but it's great for everyday wear.
I love this mascara!
Renée from Maryland
This mascara is perfect consistency, great brush, and it's true to color.
Would buy again absolutely love!

Absolutely love you can definitely see my beautiful lashes now
Amandaaa from Atlanta
Not the best mascara tbh. There's really no wow factor. I like the wand but I felt like the formula was pretty dry.
Nicole from New York
I didn't see a huge difference in my lashes. It's a great separator and those give a bit of volume but it didn't really WOW me at all. Now I just use it for my lower lashes only.
My favorite mascara!!!

Every once in a while, I get the urge to try another brand.
I am always disappointed!
Always come back to BUXOM!!!

Been using this for years. Keeps my lashes lifted all day. No flakes. Lifts and separates. Amazing
My FAVORITE mascara for years!
Cassidy from Indianapolis, IN
I LOVE this mascara. I've used it for at least 4 years. I have tried other 'name brand' mascaras but always go back to this one. I always have it on hand. The separation in this mascara formula and wand is incredible! It is never clumpy. I would recommend it to people who have lots of long lashes and need a mascara that can separate lashes while also giving volume and length. I curl my lashes a couple times and then put on the mascara. I usually apply 1 light coat, and the curl holds pretty well throughout the day. It is definitely layerable- just start with thin coats at first, let those dry, and gradually apply more. I think this mascara definitely lasts a few months too (you get your money's worth!). To be honest, I don't think this mascara would be extraordinary to someone who doesn't have some length to their lashes already. Again, what draws me to this product is its ability to separate my lashes and hold curl, while not compromising volume and length. I think both the formula and the unique wand make this possible. I recommended it to a friend who has shorter and finer lashes than me, and she also loves it and consistently buys it! I think its definitely worth a shot. Hope this helps!

Good, but not my favorite
Chanel from Texas
I have used this mascara in the past and recently re-bought, because I needed a new mascara, and couldn't remember why I didn't like this one. I typically use waterproof mascaras, but this one does a really good job at being long lasting, it doesn't flake, smear, and has stayed put even when eyes are watery due to allergies. I love the volume, length, and the way that this separates my eyelashes - zero clumps whatsoever! However the reason this isn't my holy grail mascara, is because it does not hold curl at all, which is the main thing I want from any mascara. I curl my eyelashes, apply this, and my eyelashes look fabulous — for a few seconds, but when it dries, my lashes fall straight and looks like I never even attempted to curl them. Definitely switching back to my other mascara when this one runs out.
Thomine from FL
This mascara was too expensive to be dry and completely useless. I feel so robbed.
I would buy this product again
Stacey from Cheboygan MI
Love love love this mascara!! It goes on smooth and give your lashes length and volume.
Best Mascara. Period.
Colleen from Stowe, Vermont
I've been using Buxom Mascara almost exclusively for the last 5 years. I've tried others...like toofaced, benefit, all drugstore brands, Lancôme, tarte & more but this always takes the cake. I've yet to find one that preforms, applies & looks better. I love the brush & formula. It's a perfectly smooth consistency even 3-6 months later. The brush perfectly separates and lifts lashes. I've been asked a million times if I wear fake eyelashes...nope! Never, because they feel weird to me lol. I've tried both formulas (regular & waterproof) but still prefer the original. It's a staple in my daily make up bag & I always have a back up on hand.
