I'm not a mascara person or much of a reviews person. I read them, but I don't really write them unless I find something worth writing about. I usually stick to either Lancome's waterproof formula (if I need that) or Better Than Sex/Perversion (Too Faced/Urban Decay) for mascara. I tend to use high-end mascaras because the drug store ones are more clumpy. I have very thin, medium-blonde colored lashes. They practically disappear. I also have tiny eyes so I sometimes find that brushes that are too big/bulky are harder to use or get everywhere in the process. I got a trial size of this from Tarte's website when I ordered the Unleashed palette and just threw it on - honestly because the package was hot pink and I thought why not. I was BLOWN AWAY. It has done for my lashes what no other mascara has. One coat, top to bottom, the big fluffy brush took over every last. They're separated, look fuller and longer. I can't wear fake lashes but I feel like without that messy tubing mascara this is the closest thing to false lashes I've ever used and I LOVE IT. It's seriously my new holy grail. I'm only writing this review because I was about to purchase the full size from Ulta and saw some negative comments so wanted to throw in my two cents because I am sorry it didn't work out for those that it didn't work for but for me it's absolutely beyond amazing.
This mascara is appropriately named because it thinks it's a lot better than it is. Took three coats to do the job other mascaras at this price point do in one. I seriously couldn't believe it's advertised as a "big lash" mascara. Lengthened only a tiny bit and did very much volume. And four hours after application, it had pulled all the curl from my lashes. And the brush is so big at the tip, you can't get it into the corners to do small lashes. I'm giving it to my daughter because she barely wears any makeup and this light formula MIGHT work for her. And I'm not sure about that. For this performance, don't waste your money. Maybelline Great Lash will do the exact same thing for six bucks - probably better.

I wanted to love this, but I was disappointed. Upon application, I found the product to be clumpy and difficult to apply, especially to my lower lashes, without smudging it. A couple hours after wearing, I noticed it smudging and coming off. :(

I have used all kinds of mascaras. Maybelline, LO'real, Too Faced, etc. My favorite USED TO be Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced. With ONE swipe my lashes have amazing length already. It is a great mascara and I have seen a lash transformation from the other mascaras I use. My lashes are long and thick with this product, and it lasts throughout my day!!

I wanted to give this mascara a try and it ended up being a waste of money. It flakes so much and doesn't lengthen my lashes at all.
LaLa from Arden, NC
I really like this mascara. It went on like a dream and was more lightweight than the brand I was using before. My husband even noticed that I changed brands and told me how smooth it looked.

I had given up mascara. I usually wear my magnetic lashes. This sample came in something and I loved it the first application. I took it to work for my best friend to try out too and she loved it! I don't have long lashes and this definitely makes them look great!!! I haven't had smudging issues that some of the women are talking about.

This is the best mascara I have ever used! I personally first curl my lashes and then apply the mascara, but it also works with applying first and then curling.
Chy from California
I have no idea how this mascara has any good reviews it is terrible does absolutely nothing adds no length or volume pretty much just color.
Anna from Philadelphia, PA
This is the only mascara that truly does it all for me: lots of volume, length, definition
Jocelyn from GA
I've never seen a mascara do nothing until now. All it did was make my lashes darker. Didn't add any length or anything!
MC from Butler
Okay its a great mascara, and i know that they never smell good, but seriously, hold your breath while applying it smells so bad
brooke from logan ut
first applied it looks great. I use tartes mascara primer and set under my eyes and use setting spray. it smudges almost immediately. I can't even drive to work (10 minutes) without it smudging all under my eyes. and if you don't make sure every last bit is washed off it'll smudge for days. this would be an amazing mascara if it just didn't do that.
Cami from San Jose, CA
Okay when applied. Doesn't clump. Doesn't do anything dramatic for my lashes, but adds a little length and a little volume -- basically makes them look like very nice natural lashes. So I would give this a solid 4 stars based on application. But then it all goes downhill. This is one of the worst mascaras for smudging. It's not humid. I'm not sweating. My eyes aren't watering. I've set my undereyes well with powder. This still ends up under my eyes, in a very dark, very defined streak. I can't even call it raccoon eyes; raccoon eyes would be an improvement, because that at least implies the color is soft and diffused. This is a ring of black, like I looked through a telescope with shoe polish on the eyepiece. I've tried using it on just my upper lashes, and it still ends up under my eyes. I've worn it all week, trying different undereye concealers to see if that makes a difference. I give up -- it's going in the trash.

I love this mascara I use to use the Urban Decay "Troublemaker" but they discontinued it and this one is my new favorite!
RockL from Michigan
I have a ton of mascara's from getting make up subscriptions, so I have tried several!! I often use Better than sex but when I tried this I really love it! It gives your lashes length and volume…
Jess from Florida
I love the mascara initially. Every day it
Makes my lashes look great.
And then by the end of the day they flake and smudge. It ends up in my eyes.
Must be washed off properly. And definitely take it off when I get home from work.
Brookieookie from Las Vegas Nevada
This is the best mascara I have ever used. It makes my lashes so long and lasts all day. Normally my eyelashes fall down after putting mascara on but this mascara leaves them curled and super long it also makes me look like I have a bunch more eyelashes. I would recommend this product to anyone, I use this mascara every day and it has lasted me more than seven months!
Britt from Pennsylvania
I use this one everyday, I've used so many different mascaras and when I used this one for the first time I was set. It does smudge alittle bit but the volume and length lasts for me and one coating is all I need for big nice lashes. I'm serious I love this and I highly recommend it!
Taryn from Virginia
I really wanted to like this mascara because it looks so good when you first put it on but it smudges horribly throughout the day. I don't have this problem with any other mascaras I've tried, I will finish the tube but I won't repurchase.
avasauce from Delaware
Good I use this mascara as a second coat and it makes my lashes have more volume
Nurse and softball mom from Arkansas
Doesn't clump. Lots of volume.
Brooke from Florida
Overall this mascara does the job of adding color but it doesn't do much justice. It doesn't add any volume or length and the mascara dries out super duper fast.
D from Riverside, CA
Love this mascara. It makes my lashes look fuller and it doesn't smug.
Alyssa lovely from Texas
It's not bad but the formula has a good consistency just didn't like the brush. Overall I'd recommend it
SCB from North Carolina
This mascara does create noticeable volume but it doesn't last. It also smudges horribly throughout the day. Without placing a coat of waterproof mascara on top, (different brand) I had very noticeable smudging under the eyes. It's not worth the money if its falling off all day.
Elisabettawill from Reno, NV
I love this mascara for my no makeup look. It goes on evenly, no clumping, and I've had it smudge just a tiny bit on one occasion, but I just don't put that much moisturizer on my eyes during the day anymore, problem solved. The wand is great, gets every lash, and the formula is more lengthening as opposed to volumizing, which is perfect for a regular or more natural look. I love it! Knocked a star off because the name (and the price) suggests it would have more oomph, but overall, it's fantastic.
