Most Helpful Positive Review A solid everyday mascara
The two things I look for in mascara are how well it lengthens and thickens the look of my eyelashes (both with and without using a curler first), and whether or not it smudges on my face throughout the day. This mascara is excellent on both counts living up to the claims of being smudge proof and clump proof. The brush has a nice contour that adds some lift (although, I sill recommend using a curler first), and adds thickness without clumps. It isn't going to miraculously make you look like you are wearing fake eyelashes, but it does a nice job and absolutely didn't smudge during the day. Bonus points for the cool design.
Most Helpful Critical Review I wanted to love it...
but I don't. Biggest complaint is that it flakes really badly. After just a few hours I had noticeable flakes under my eyes. I tried it for a full week, hoping it was some fluke, but it wasn't. It's also fairly clumpy. I'll be returning it.

It applies nicely, but I like this type of wand the best. It wears well for the most part, however, it doesn't last in warmer weather. It doesn't flake or smear, and that's something I do look for.

A great product. I will buy again. Comes off easily and does not transfer on face when wearing
This not just ok, it's amazing!
Amber from Covington, GA
This might not work as well as it does either but man, let me tell you it works for me! I love the application, and the brush. I hate mascara's that will cause clumpage... this baby applies almost flawlessly but I recommend using an eyelash curler for that extra bang! You will not go wrong buying this. This takes climax to whole banging level!
I will buy this product again.

I don't have anything bad to say about this mascara. I'm usually very picky when it comes to spending my money but had no problem spending it on this product.
Carlette from OH
The color is good and the formula is very smooth and has not irritated my sensitive eyes, but it doesn't do much more than darken my lashes. I'd pay drug store prices for this but not prestige prices.
NOT what I was expecting!
Jess from Beaverton, Oregon
I wanted to love this so bad. I have heard people rave about this mascara for a very long time. But sadly it is not at all what I was expecting. It's way to dry, if you try to layer it.. it gets super clumpy, smudges badly. So sad. Save your money and skip on this mascara.

The best mascara ever. I bought me and my aunt one a couple weeks ago and Friday I got two more for backup
Pricey but worth it
Amanda from Beloit WI
Normally don't spend so much on mascara but I had received a sample of this before and fell in love. It makes my lashes look longer and separated without making them look like spiders. So this is now a must have for me.
Flakes and smudges
amygirl1 from Columbus, OH
This mascara is so overpriced. I tried it via the mini version that I got in a mascara sampler pack. Maybe that has an effect on the formula though I would assume it's the same as the full sized product. This is definitely worse than every drug store mascara I have recently tried. And it's like triple the price of drug store. It smudges so easily and flakes off within hours a lot of the time. I don't use water proof mascara usually so I understand that this isn't supposed to be waterproof, but I expect a non-waterproof mascara to at least stay on my eyes for an extended period of time. It gets 2 stars because you can get good volume with this, but nothing better than some awesome affordable mascaras that last longer.
Great look but not worth it
Kathryn from MD
I love the look of this mascara - the name is accurate, my lashes have never looked sexier! BUT! It smudges so so easily and leaves this terrible residue. It takes so much time to take off at night and even with all that work sometimes I'd wake up with sore and itchy eyes from it. My lashes became weak and twisted within the first week.
Just what I needed
Ella from U.S.
I used this mascara with the Lash Paradise Lash Primer and it's just what I've been looking for!! Perfect length, volume, and build-ability, but not clumpy. Even without the primer it's great.
I have already bought this product again!
Colleen from Orland Park, IL
I love this mascara! It separates, volumes, and builds wonderfully!
Catherine from Houston, Texas
After only having it on for an hour this mascara smudged and looked like I had been crying. Terrible looking! Not a good choice!
Atrain23 from Florida
Wanted to love it but it smudged under my eyes after a couple hours and it flakes. I see specks of mascara all over my cheeks.
So far so good.
Rebeca from San Diego CA
I do like this mascara. Looks super natural, long beautiful lashes, no clumps. Been having clumping issues out here in San Diego where the weather has been very low humidity.
wanted to love it
J from GA
I'm so sad this didn't work for me. the formula is thin & wet & made my lashes look very pretty. however, it smudges BAD. by the end of the day it looked like I had been crying or sweating really bad when I hadn't even been outside. ended up returning
Worst mascara I have ever tried
Izzy from Chicago
This mascara did nothing for me. It has the consistency of a mascara that is old and drying out. By the end of the day it is all smudged under my eyelids. Do not buy this!
Reminds me of the new elf mascara
Madi from Muncie
Love the bottle, but not to pleased
Britt from Bend OR
I was so excited to try this because of the hype but ended up being disappointed
Lashes look amazing
Karla from PA
This mascara is amazing. It made my lashes look like falsies. They were long and had lots of volume with only two coats. It didn't smudge or flake either.
Love this mascara
Pampered Chef from Lapeer , MI
Goes on smooth. No clumps. No flaking.
Not as described by store consultant
Oshkosh from Oshkosh, WI
Brush is big and mascara is globby on it. Wasted money. By mid day had black under eyes. Specifically asked clerk for recommendation - not impressed.
A big NO from me.
Amber from North Carolina
By the end of the day this mascara just runs and doesn't stay! Don't get me wrong I love NARS but this mascara just isn't good.
Tom nook from Los Angeles
I don't buy "prestige" cosmetics, just the foundation. However, I'm on my FOURTH REPURCHASE on this mascara!! I have not found a drugstore mascara that does that nars does! I already have long lashes so this makes it look I have falsies! Amazing
Not Impressed NARS
Krisanthamum from Raleigh, NC
I wanted to love this, but I won't buy it again. I picked up the mini in store to try it out before committing to full size. I have fair skin and hair with sensitive eyes, so I need a flake free product that is non-irritating and reasonably easy to remove. The brush for the Mini Climax is way oversized and makes it difficult to work with effectively. I'm not a novice, but by the end of the day I had major under eye smudge (and I do not use a lower lash liner). Disappointing.
