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.

Horrible mascara. It flaked constantly and my eyes felt like they were burning by then end of the day.
Best mascara I've ever used
Elizabeth from Mesa, Az
I absolutely love this mascara!! It's my go to now. It is a bit pricer than usual mascaras but well worth it! Super easy to build up and doesn't clump!
One of the Worst Mascaras I've Ever Used
KristaRN4 from Missouri
This mascara is SO disappointing. Added no volume, no length, and made my eyelashes super clumpy. Top 2 worst mascaras I've ever used. I love a lot of Nars products but this is not one of them.
It's a big NO
Chai from PA
I received this mascara in gratis. Was super excited to try cuz I remember it being popular a long time ago & the packaging is so cute, but no… First of all it takes LAYERS to get any sort of effect. I had to do like 4 layers just for it to look like I was wearing mascara at all. & then after wearing it through the day it transferred mascara on my lids and under my eyes. Very sad. :(

This product goes on nicely and looks great at first. I love the wand and the texture is really easy to apply. However, there is tons of fallout within the hour. I look like a raccoon by the end of the day. Super disappointed.
glad i didn't buy the fullsized
kylie from california
i bought this mascara because i wanted to try something new and didn't have high expectations, but, i was disappointed. doesn't keep your lashes curled and smudges a lot. save your money
Kmills from Florida
If you want to look like a raccoon, this ones for you. I didn't sweat, nothing strenuous, not around any water and by end of day this mascara was all over my under-eyes.
Amy Lynn from Milton, PA
This is just okay. Gives your lashes a nice natural look. Becomes clumpy quickly. It does cumble throughout the day.
Smudges and budges
Kate from Oklahoma
I like the way this mascara applies. It appears to give fullness and length. However, it seems to weigh my lashes down and drag out any curl. It also smudges so badly- I have never had a mascara smudge this poorly. I would not repurchase. If I got it for free, I would not wear it- I would throw it away.
All around poor
Hp9876 from West Virginia
I did not like anything about this mascara unfortunately. I could not get the formula to build up even after multiple layers. After 3-4 hrs of applying, it looked like I hadn't worn any mascara. It seemed to weigh down my lashes causing them to loose a curl (from curling tool). It always smudged on my lower lids. And trying to remove was difficult- I use micellar water on microfiber face cloth- and there would always be residue left over. This surprised me especially since it seemed to disappear earlier in the day! I don't think anyone would benefit from this mascara.
Fallout was Awful
Becca from San Marcos
I had heard such great things about this mascara so I bought it during the 21 days of beauty. But, goodness, the fallout is awful. I have raccoon eyes by mid-afternoon. Glad I didn't pay full price.
Yeloroze1 from Texas
I have bought drugstore $5 mascara that didn't flake and did a better job. The ratings were way over the top when recommending this mascara.
Not what it use to be
Disappointed from Texas
This use to be my go to mascara. BUT NOT ANYMORE! It gave great length and volume when I first started buying it. But the last 3 tubes I bought have been nearly empty. Can't get anything out of the tube to put on my lashes. Highly disappointed
KNS from PA
My lashes are naturally pretty long, curled and dark so I really don't need much from a mascara at all. Usually any drug store mascara works great. This is the only time I've used a mascara that didn't do anything. I felt and looked like I had nothing on
Cali_Real_MUA from Salt Lake City
This is my daily I'm going around and don't want to get super dressed up, but I need mascara or I look like the living dead mascara.
-make sure that your later dries before putting on another layer, also comb after each layer.
-this is not waterproof so some maintenance needed. Like don't rub your eyes.
-I would Recommend very lightly powdering around the eyes so the mascara doesn't mingle with face oil.
Hardly does anything
Brooke from Charlotte
It's hardly adds anything to my lashes and smudges
The absolute worst
NJ_Mom from New Jersey
The worst items I bought during the 21 days of beauty. Flaking is an understatement. I've had $5 mascara that held up better than this
Lindsay from Wilkesbarre
This mascara is absolutely terrible! So happy i paid for it at a discounted price. I had raccoon eyes after an hour of wearing. I used it twice and now its in the garbage. Really bummed as i had high hopes for this.
K from Idaho
This stuff looks okay for about an hour, and then flakes into your eyes like crazy. I think it would maybe be a good option for those with oily eyelids, since it's sooo dry. The formula is also fairly volumizing, and the brush is great. But overall just terrible, at least for me.
Ok but nothing special
Andie from Central Indiana
I bought this while it was 50% off and I'm glad I did. For the lower price it's ok but I'd be upset if I paid full price for it. There are definitely better mascaras out there.
Lash Fairy from PA
I'm so sad that this mascara didn't stay put. It made my lashes look amazing, but within 30 minutes it had smudged so badly and I had raccoon eyes. I love NARS but this is a no go. Avoid.
TXKITTEN from SATX
I was so excited to try this but the amount of mascara flakes that that got into my eyes..... I had to return
Lengthening, smudges easy but not terrible
Howard from Indiana
Easy to take off, very comfortable to wear, but with that it comes off very very easily and will smudge and disappear. No flaking.
Cc from Madison, WI
I liked how it applied and made my lashes look but it smudged under my eyes after a couple hours and by the end of the day had raccoon eyes 😐
