Most Helpful Positive Review Awesome Mascara
I've owned just about every mascara, some waterproof others not. Some have cost a ton of money and others have been drugstore. I have very sensitive eyes especially during allergy season but this mascara is amazing. My eyes don't water or sting. I never have raccoon eyes, no bottom smudging either. I also have long lashes but not volume, this mascara makes them beautiful and full. This also easy to take off, I use a makeup wipe then just wash with a cleanser. There is also NO flaking or brittle lashes. This is my summer holy grail. I will always buy this mascara. It is reasonably price for a great mascara. Thank you MAC for getting it right. I'm 50 years old so I've been around the makeup counter ha! Give it a try!
Most Helpful Critical Review How will this mascara come off?
I bought this Mascara from Mac store and I took it without trying it first. it seems pretty decent but my problem is it wont come off even when i am trying to remove it at the end of the day. I have tried everything and would appreciate some suggestion. Cleansing wipes, face wash, creams, nothing works and my eyelids feel heavy the next day as I didn't sleep at all. Can someone help me?

I like it. Didn't love it. I still haven't found a mascara better than the one I have now.
The best mascara I have found.
Bridget from MT
I have short, thin lashes and have always had trouble finding a good mascara. I use the back, waterproof. It defines my lashes, stays on and a tube will last for a few months.
I would buy again, definately

I have been using this mascara for a few years and I love it. It does not smudge for me and I have oily skin. It is natural looking.
Not Smudge proof
Faye from Washington DC
I have bought this product a couple months ago, since i was looking for a great waterproof that doesn't smudge. I am a dancer, and most of the time, I at least want to enhance my to wear mascara to enhance my lashes not only during shows and performances, but also rehearsals and auditions. First time i used this at a rehearsal & a work out session to try it for the whole day (It did smudge), Leaving clumpy flakes on the bottom of my lashes that irritated both my eyes. (I had to stop using mascara for days for my lashes to breathe).
I gave it a go at my normal / daily routine on my day off, without sweating or moving around as crazy as the first time i used it hoping it wont smudge like the last time). It did. :( As much as i want to believe that this product works as a smudge proof mascara, it did not do that work for me. Will not buy this product again.
I would probably buy this again
Sand from Davenport, Fl
I need to wear mascara every day, I am naturally blonde so my lashes are very light too. I curl my lashes 1st then apply mascara. But this mascara takes that curl right back out of them. I have never had that problem with any other mascara.
I would by this product again

This mascara is definitely waterproof, you must use a waterproof eye makeup remover otherwise it ain't coming off. My lashes look long and beautiful all day long.
Jess from Virginia
I was bummed about this, first MAC product that has failed me. Goes on lumpy and heavy, would not recommend.
Jen from New Jersey
I would highly recommend using this mascara there is no clamping very nicely smoothly going on easily.
Ceci R from TX
I was hesitant to purchase this as I saw some negative reviews. I'm glad I went out and purchased and made me own decision. It's not clumpy or flakey at all. I curl my lashes first, apply a layer of mascara top and bottom, brush my lashes out and wait for them to dry. Once dried, I go back in with my curler. Severely underrated!
Love this mascara it gives a miracle boost to my thin lashes
Elect Lady Bee from Aurora
Will buy this product again in the future!
Love the look and lasts all day
Rose from Inland Empire, CA
This mascara added length and volume without clumping (unless you layer too much). The wand is a bit big and bulky which takes getting used to but I can apply it without it getting everywhere. Lasts all day even through an evening workout. Hard to get off at first but I found with coconut oil and a makeup removing cloth (cloth not wipe) it comes right off without eye irritation.
Separates lashes beautifully
Taylor the female from Norristown, Pa
Everyone should buy this for brush alone!! The waterproof formula is really serious business, and it's not harsh on your lashes
BUY THIS NOW
Nico from Tbilisi
This is the absolute best mascara I have ever worn. It makes my lashes so dark and thick. I look like I have lash extensions from one layer of this mascara. Stop looking at other products and buy this. Also invest in the eye make up remover because this product will not come off with just face wash.
Bwojo from Maryland
I loved this mascara when I bought it but after using it for a while(2-3 weeks)the top of my tube broke off and it got really dry and clumpy in the tube. Too expensive in my option to replace because of packaging :(
Not for me
Karyn from Pennsylvania
Applicator design prevents excess from being removed, so it takes a few extra scrapes on the side of the opening to get excess off.
Formula goes on nicely and the overall look is exactly what I want; fuller longer lashes that last all day. While that is what I get, it comes at a cost. Random flakes in my eyes a couple hours later and then trying to take off the mascara without too much work or wear/tear on the surrounding eye skin. I tried 3 different make-up removers then settled on baby oil. It's hard enough to find a "perfect" mascara that I was willing to deal with it and figured this is the consequence for that "quest", but if after all this I still don't want to wear mascara b/c of how much effort it is to remove it then it's not worth it.

I like the lengthening of this mascara, but the wand hole is too wide and doesn't remove excess mascara so it's quite clumpy on the wand, have to wipe off on the sides, creating just a huge mess :(
Str8MACluv from California
I love how this makes my lashes look so bold and fierce. It's easy to apply and not clumpy. I love how it's waterproof and I can take a quick dip in the pool I don't have smudges all over my face
Not a fan
Kay from Redding, CA
I bought this because I usually love Mac mascara + I needed a waterproof mascara for summer/lake days, and I am not impressed. Within a very short time frame (not even 2 hours), it was flaky. Ya know, those little flakes that get in your eyes and blind you. It is definitely waterproof, hard to remove even with cleanser made for waterproof mascara. It's the first time I've tried this specific one from Mac and I likely won't buy this one again.

Doesn't curl lashes. Goes on clumpy. I even tried curling lashes first, but it straightened my lashes out. I won't be buying it again. If the stores were open, it would be returned.
Lori from Canton, Ohio
My favorite mascara doesn't clump and makes lashes appear so full.
Very happy with this mascara.
MCP from Mobile, AL
I find myself using this more because it applies so easily and doesn't clump.
Isana from AK
The formula itself is wonderful, but applicator is terrible. The stick is so thick that the opening has to be huge to accommodate it. Which means it ends up not capable of scraping enough off the brush itself to actually apply it without leaving huge clumps and making it impossible to get any sort of separation. It pulls so much that even trying to wipe off the excess just makes a mess and feels horribly wasteful. It's sad too, because the little samples don't have this problem and I absolutely feel in love with product after using one. If they ever fix the applicator this would probably be my go to mascara...
MBGal from Myrtle Beach, SC
This is the only mascara that I have found that I am not allergic too and wanting to claw out my eyes because they're itching. My lashes are very thin and not noticeable until I put this mascara on and then they pop! It's a total transformation. If I don't remove it each night it does clump while I sleep. It stays on all day. It doesn't smudge. It doesn't smear. I've been using this for @ 4 yrs. I walked into a MAC store in Beverly Hills (Rodeo Dr) and the girls there did my makeup for my birthday and this is what they recommended and they were 100% correct.
Best waterproof mascara
jacko12 from Toronto
This is the best waterproof mascara I've ever tried! I have problems with mascara transferring to my eyelids because I have long lashes and hooded eyes and this is the only mascara that doesn't smudge throughout the day. I also like adding a couple of layers on a night out as it is very voluminizing. As other reviewers mentioned, it is hard to remove but I find an oil cleanser works best
VERY similar to the Original that is now discontinued!!!!
OG MAC GIRL from Seattle, Wa
The formula is very very similar to the original formula (tube with white MAC letters) that is now discontinued. The only difference is that since this is a waterproof formula, it REALLY REALLY is waterproof! With the formula, even with the 3D tube (all black MAC letters) you do not need to re-dio your wand into the product to build, there will be enough product on the wand for both eyes and for building. If you do re-dip, you will get clumpy lashes.
