Most Helpful Positive Review A+++++++++++++
BEST MASCARA I HAVE EVER USED. I swore by Better Than Sex until I tried this. It's 100x better. My lashes are long and thick but not clumpy. It looks like I am wearing falsies but nope, just this mascara. Everyone comments on how good my lashes look and I've brought my friends over to the dark side. Dark, long, thick lashes that is. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Most Helpful Critical Review one of the worst mascaras I've ever used
I've tried dozens of volumizing mascaras ranging from high to low end and this is easily one of the worst. The formula is not deep black at all, but more of a grayish black. The consistency is sticky, heavy, dry, and difficult to layer. Even with a lash comb, it was impossible to sculpt lashes or break up the clumps, and my curl completely disappeared after one coat. My lashes are naturally fairly thick and long, and this mascara made them look so much worse than they actually are by clumping them together into wiry, anemic-looking spider legs. Layering this mascara over a primer helped a little with the volume and spreadability, but not enough.
The brush looked interesting at first, and if your lashes are thin I could see how it could provide some definition. But ultimately the tiny bristles on the rubber brush are too short for anyone with thicker lashes, and they just make a gloppy mess. The only thing I ended up liking about this formula was the packaging. There are much, much better volumizing mascaras out there. Don't waste your time on this one.

This is hands down the best mascara I have ever used in my entire life...and I've tried them all! It is amazing how this makes your lashes look so long and curled.
My Favorite Mascara Ever!!!
Davi from California
Despite the cons I love this Mascara. I would give it 5 stars if it weren't for those 2 issues. But it's amazing!! I was a longtime Diorshow mascara fan. But this came in my ipsy bag and wow! I have long lashes already but they are few and thin. This mascara is perfect for thickening them up and doesn't clump like so many do. I have been using this for over a year now and still love it. Definitely worth a try!!
Natural looking mascara. Will buy again!

Absolute Best Macara!!
Jess from Callahan, Fl
This is my favorite mascara!!! I've tried several, almost every mascara out there. This one tops everything!
Absolutely worth the money!
NR from Austin, TX
I actually got this as my free birthday gift because they had already run out of my month, but had extras of the month before. First off, it was a full tube, so thanks Ulta for the birthday gift (you did better than some family members). Secondly, this mascara almost got stolen twice from my sisters because they saw my eyelashes and wanted it. It goes on so well and really lengthens your natural lashes! People saying it doesn't have volume are just lash deficient. I apply two coats and it's perfect. I will wear just this and a little bit of concealer and I look like I actually tried to put in effort in my appearance. I couldn't recommend this enough!

There is no dupe for this product.. don't even try to find one. It is worth every single penny. I received it in a gift bag that I bought from Tarte & chose it as one of my items because I had heard good things but never expected much. This is my 1st review I've ever written on a make-up product in my LIFE. I literally stopped after I applied the 1st coat & said out loud "what the ****?!?!?" ... and I did a 2nd coat & immediately had to call my sister... It's effortless.. doesn't clump.. gives the illusion almost of a smooth liner at the base of your lashes because the brush covers so thoroughly but without the cakey look of layered product... like your lashes are just naturally dark and full at the base and fan out perfectly. I'm a person that will buy drugstore brands any time I can to save money, but the minute I used this, they had me forever. If you can do one "feel good" thing for yourself, find something else to skimp on & make the splurge on this. Wasn't paid for this review & didn't receive free product... but Tarte or Ulta, if you're listening... feel free to be in touch! 🤗
I will buy this again
Shelly from Tennessee
Love this product, it does not clump, does not smudge. Separates your lashes, goes on great.
Too bad it's so irritating!
MAL from New Jersey
I thought I found the perfect mascara! Love the brush love the way it goes on love how my lashes look unfortunately I had major irritation. I ended up having to go to the eye doctor and we determined it was from the mascara. I'm so disappointed. I definitely do have sensitive eyes so it would not be a surprise I would just proceed with caution if you have sensitive eyes
Kaytlynn from Texas
I love this mascara, lasts a long time but isn't too hard to remove.
rlorose from NC
i am obsessed with this mascara it separates all of my lashes so nicely while giving them length so it gives me this sweet doe eye look. my dog just chewed up this mascara and ruined it so now im sad but still it's a bomb mascara
Love this product! Would buy again!
Ka from Greenwood, SC
Loved the length it gave to my stubby lashes!
Absolute Favorite ❤️
Lilly from Rensselaer
I got this mascara for free with my Shape Tape and I have NEVER loved a mascara so much. It literally looks better as the day goes on and my lashes look like falsies when I'm wearing it. I never have any issues with flaking or running like some reviews say, it stays right in place all day. The one thing I will say is don't use it with a mascara primer. For one, you don't need it, and for two the mascara doesn't work well with a primer, it's thick enough on it's own. 10/10 always will recommend
best mascara EVER.
Sarah from United States
I have tried so many mascaras in my lifetime, but nothing compares to this!! Everyone hyped up other high end mascaras like roller lash and better than sex, but I didn't like either of them!! Maneater is by far the best mascara I have ever used. It gives me the perfect amount of length, curl, volume, and separation of my lashes without making them look fake or clumpy. I would give this mascara 10 stars if I could.
Love this mascara! Will buy again

This is a perfect mascara. The brush gets the tiniest lash.
Best mascara ever!
Patshands from Franklin, TN
I have tried many different mascaras for my short eyelashes and this one has been the best for me. No clumping or flaking.
Bothered my Eyes
tntholley from Ocean Springs, MS
Every time I wore this mascara, my eyes became watery. I must be allergic to something in this, and I don't remember having this problem with any other mascara so I'm not sensitive. My leaky eyes caused this mascara to be all over my eyelids by the end of the day, so it's definitely easy to run. As for the look, I really didn't see anything special for the price. It didn't compare to my favorite mascara, Lancome Monsieur Big Volume Mascara.
The Best I have ever used!
jusme from Va.
I used Lancome Defenicil and loved it... but this stuff is amazing...will never go back!
The best mascara I've ever tried & I have tried A LOT!
Brandy Jo from Tennessee
Yes, like most women I've tried tons of mascaras and this one has them all beat so far. I'm always looking for the best of the best! I've read reviews where others agree it is the best and I read one awhile ago that said it was the worst. The worst? I have to believe she got a bad one.. maybe the top wasn't on tight and it dried up? I do say the formula isn't always the same in any of the mascaras I've tried. So, maybe that was the case also? I can't say for sure but I can tell you from my experience it has been the absolute best for me. I have thin lashes and need that extra color and boost. I love the comb style brush that the Maneater offers. It gives a little more lift than other brands that I've tried.
Sev from Cali
It does give your eyelashes a volume and is easy to apply. The only problem that I have is the brush. Is too big and sometimes it makes you waste more than the usual.
literally the best mascara
Katie the Lady from Utah
This is the best mascara if you want volume and separation and length. I have tried so many high end mascara and this one keeps me coming back.
Never buying cheap again!
Ccbeauty from Mankato, mn
I have been going through hundreds of drugstore mascaras over the years and never found one that worked for me. I received a free sample of this mascara for my birthday and it is my go-to! Not only does the bottle last a long time, my eye lashes look amazing, and I get compliments on them all the time.

KDee from Milwaukee, Wi
For the price, I would not recommend this mascara. Everyday I would look in the mirror mid day and I'd have mascara around my under eye. I've paid less money and had a better product that gave me a great length, volume, and did not run.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS, IT'S TRASH.
Won't ever look for another mascara.
Beth from New York
I got this mascara as a mini size in a gift bundle one year and I never cared enough to try it out... once I did, my life was changed. I have long, thick lashes, so I don't know how it wears on other types. But since I do have that lash type it's been hard for me to find a mascara that actually evenly spreads them out and lifts them without drooping or smudging. No flakes whatsoever, literally not one in all my experience, and no smudges EVER. I used to swear by Too-Faced Better Than Sex for years, but after using Maneater I realized how awful that mascara is now. I've never gotten compliments on my lashes like I do now and it's all because of this formula. It also doesn't dry up fast and one tube will last a couple of months (even if it shouldn't). The only almost con is that it's very wet at first and a little harder to use but after a few uses and it airates a little, it's perfect. People think that having a lot of lashes is easy but so many mascaras clump them together and make them heavy and fall within minutes. This mascara is definitely for you if you have average or a lot of lashes.
