Rated 3.7 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Don't understand the bad reviews...
For reference, my everyday mascara is TF BTS. I know, some people hate it (including Jeffree Star) and others rave about it. I happen to live for it. This wand of the GRANDE mascara is similar but it seems like it's a bit more angled (the end of the wand) and the overall shape a bit smaller, with the hourglass shape still being there. I applied it to my lashes just now with no other makeup on and a freshly washed face just to test it. I really like it. It did NOT clump. It lengthened pretty well. My lashes are already curly but it didn't straighten nor weigh them down. I applied two or three coats and love it. Get it now while all the boxycharm girls are selling theirs dirt cheap on resale sites (where I got mine, still in the plastic). I'm hoping the BC version is the same formulation bc I've been hearing some shady rumors lately about boxy. Anyways! Lengthened, added body and oomph, separated pretty well! My lashes feel soft and conditioned; not dry and crunchy. I just hope the castor oil in this mascara is high up enough on the ingredients list that it is actually able to make a difference in my lashes. It'd be awesome if it was actually potent enough to promote the Health and growth of my lashes. Honestly don't understand the bad reviews at All.
Most Helpful Critical Review Terrible residue left behind
I received this as a sample and tried it today. Not only did this mascara no deliver, but it left A MILLION tiny black specks all over my face. It took me about 30 minutes to pick all the residue off my face (of course I did my face before using this mascara, lucky me). I can't wait to see what happens after a few hours pass - I'm sure I'll have to do it all over again.
The mascara itself wasn't awful but certainly nothing special, however the awful residue left behind made me immediately toss it in the trash. The mascara didn't provide much length at all, volume was okay, and it did a pretty bad job of separating my lashes. All in all, the mascara itself is mediocre. Taking into account the flakes of dried product that fall all over your face during application I'd say this product deserves negative stars. Save your $ and buy something (anything) else.
I use Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama and get compliments nearly every day. I've tried sample after sample of expensive mascara and still haven't found one better. (I'm not paid by Maybelline, I swear lol, just thought I'd throw that in there since it's one I do like)

I use the product with applying just 2 layers, making my lashes look fuller and longer. I love it! One of my new favorites.

I received this mascara as a sample and began using it recently. There are both pros and cons to this mascara:
Goes on really creamy with the oil
One coat and you're good to go
Love the wand
Dries very quickly, so if you try to put on another coat sometimes it looks thick
Does flake after daily wear
Is it the best mascara I've used? No. Do I like this mascara? Yes.
This is honestly one of the best mascara's I've bought.
Cassidy from New York
I was always curious about trying this brand. Hilary Duff's vogue makeup tutorial actually made me go and buy the mascara. It is pricey but worth it in my opinion. There are other high end mascara's that are just expensive for the name itself or brand however, this mascara however lives up to what it says it will do. Everyone is different, and based on other comments I have not experienced any burning sensations or stinging. My only complaint is it's a little more work to take it off vs with other mascara's that are easier to wipe off.

I loved how this mascara made my lashes instantly pop. I haven't fallen in love with my lashes like this in years. Everyone is complimenting me and asking if I have false lashes. I didn't see on the packaging that this was waterproof but it held up like a ninja my entire lake day. Take this journey to lash fantastic, you won't be disappointed.
I would not buy again

I think the product was old since I used Grande before.
E from SF
This mascara is great! It separates lashes and gives you volume without creating clumps. Will definitely buy again!
Great for volume!
Elvira from Colorado
I received a sample in a package over 6 months ago and started to use this when my regular mascara ran out. I use better than sex mascara normally, and I absolutely loved this product. I have used my sample size for over a month now and it makes my eyelashes look so full and curly without the clumps. I have oily eyelids and there is no transfer or flaking of the product.
Shara from USA
I'm not sure why everybody is saying it's dried out I've had mine for probably two months maybe three. No I don't use it every day, because I am not going out as much as I used to. But it's amazing. It makes my eyelashes so much longer. Easy to get off and doesn't transfer. I'm ready to buy it again.
Thought it would be a great product for weak lashes.
Kmb from Wi
Would have preferred a different brush style as seems to take more of a time to put it on to look full. But do like the idea it has castor oil in it.

I wear about 3x a week
Dani from NH
The only thing I can say about this mascara is DOA. Dried out. NOTHING in the tube. Ordered TWICE and both times there was nothing inside. I have never experienced this with any other mascara. I see the good reviews and think about trying again, but after waiting a week to get product, then waiting for a new one, not worth it.
Gaily from Charlotte nc
Brush is good
Not able to remove with soap and water need to use eye makeup remover
Flakes while being removed
Not that great
Kingkirabee from Denver,co
I haven't even had this for a month and it's already dried out. I love the brush but hate the formula. I wouldn't buy this again.
I would buy this product again
Kim from Jackson, NJ
I am definitely a person with very thin light and not many lashes. After testing this product for only one week i did see many differences in my lashes. The first 3 days you use it you don't see much and it looks like waterproof mascara quality but after about 8-9 days i saw more lashes appear and overall growth of more lashes. Ofcourse it didn't give me incredible results like, "i don't even need mascara anymore !" But it gave me realistic results like if i curl and brush out my lashes or use other mascaras u can definitely see so much more lengthening and volume than before this product. I gained these result by putting on the mascara everyday ! And I'll possibly come back to post a 2 week or 1 month results soon ! But so far even after a week, i. Can guarantee that this is a good product for growing more lashes when used daily :))
Best mascara I've ever used
Stefanie from Ft lauderdale
It is absolutely wonderful and doesn't leak or transfer on upper or lower lids
Amanda from Oklahoma
This replaced my better than sex which I've used for years. I absolutely love the way this goes on. My lashes are naturally pretty long and thick and this intensified it so much more. And I love it because it doesn't clump up on me. I don't know what their other reviews are talking about.
G from New York
I was not expecting this mascara to be this good! I definitely see a dramatic change in my lashes. I use to get my lashes done and I just stopped. My lashes were so short once I removed my lash extensions. I was gifted this mascara to try and now I am a loyal customer and this is my 2nd tube. My real lashes have grown and they look thicker. I love that the mascara is infused with castor oil which is really good to help grow out your lashes. The mascara lasted me 2 months and I used it every single day.
Not a fan.
Aimee from N.C.
Really clumpy, flakes all over, and SO difficult to get off because it dries almost like a wax. It does make my lashes fluffy and long, but it only lasts an hour or two before I start looking like a raccoon.
Not worth the price.
Nixanadoo from Washington, DC
It's supposed to be intense, but it just seemed to be clumpy. I'll stick with the D*mn, Girl or the Big Ego.
I would buy it again
Sofy from Non yo beeswax, NW
My lashes have always been super dull and straight. They are now super long and feathery, but also super natural.
Love it but be ready to replace fairly quickly
JBS from Alabama
Love how this mascara makes my lashes look, even after just one coat. My only issue is that after about a month it begins to clump in the tube making it difficult to use the wand and has to be replaced quicker than other formulas that I've used.
I love and would buy it again. it is my favorite mascara.
Genny Gal from Rome, GA
This is my new favorite mascara. I have gotten over 50 different brands of mascara over the past 2 years. I was about to give up and not wear any mascara. But this is the best.
Love this !!
SG ❤️ from C ga
So castor oil has been found to help grow healthy, strong hair, and the fact that they infused this mascara with castor oil is fantastic!!
This stuff is amazing, it makes my lashes look soooo long and full and just beautiful, almost giving a false lash look.
Since I've been using it for about a month now (applying once every day) I'm noticing my natural lashes ARE much fuller. So in short, yes it works.
And I'm not experiencing flaking? I don't know if some people got a bad tube, but nope. No issues there.
Fluffy thinning lashes
CarrieO from Seattle
After losing my lashes from extensions I searched for a product that would add texture, color and volume with less breakage and flaking and would dissolve more easily when removed. Cannon Ball by Urban Decay is awesome but the removal is totally not. Grande Dame filled the bill for me and is less costly than my second choice, Chanel Le Volume. Plus it has castor oil in it which helps to strengthen and grow lashes and has vitamin E. I do have to say I am not a fan of the huge roundness of the brush. Trimming the tip down with sharp detail scissors makes a difference. My lashes do look fuller and thicker with less breakage. Grab one from the back. They are the freshest.
