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.

I got this in a boxycharm and tried it out and now it's my everyday HG. It doesn't clump and the formula is flexible and comfortable, it doesn't itch like a lot of mascaras do (i have very sensitive skin). love this and will purchase it again when my tube runs out
One of my favs

Great mascara! Gives me long thick lashes with no clumps! It lasts all day long, a little hard to remove but I just use a little coconut oil to help break it down. Love it!
This is the ONLY mascara I buy!!

The best mascara on the market!

I've tried so many mascaras and kept looking until I found this one. It lasts a long time because you don't need that many coats, and the amount of times I have cried or sweat with this on with it *barely* budging, and it withstands humidity so well. I will never switch my mascara again!

I'm not sure how this mascara has so many good reviews. It looks pretty, but it is one of the worst mascaras as far as getting black under my eyes. The formula seems too wet or something. I had black smudges under my eyes after an hour or less.

I was super excited to try this mascara, given i love my Tarte concealer. unfortunately this mascara is a big NO from me... its difficult to clean off (black around eyes for days/ dark circles), it's also rough to clean off i feel as if i need to scrub hard and i feel eyelash-less once im finished. Also very flakey right away. Again, NOT my go to mascara :(

I have naturally curly lashes so this stuff really helps me achieve the lengthened lash look. I have tried a lot of mascaras and this is one of my favorites. I usually get during sales because it's pricey. Worth it during a sale!

This is by far my top favorite!! My lashes look so bomb!! Must have!!
Rae Rae from Wichita
I really don't understand the bad reviews. I've tried over 25 mascaras looking for the "one". Some are too natural looking for me while others are super clumpy. This one was what I was looking for. I have long lashes but I needed volume with clump. I use a lash primer from a different brand and then apply two coats of this. No clumps at all. My lashes look amazing. I find it extremely easy to remove with make removing oil. I use the Dermalogica one. There are no flakes. It's perfect.
I dont know...

I got this as a birthday perk from Ulta this month. I feel that it's really difficult to thoroughly cleanse- I double cleanse, use micellar water, and occasionally use a makeup removing cleanser, too. I get black around my eyes the next two days. My eyelashes feel crazy short after about 1-2 weeks of using this. I really want to love it but I don't know yet. Eyes are a bit sensitive to it as well.

I love the look that this gives my eyes and has almost a "dramatic effect"
Only mascara I use!
jn from New Jersey
I have sensitive eyes due to contacts. This mascara has no noticeable scent, which is big for me. More importantly, it makes my lashes look AMAZING! I constantly get compliments on my lashes and people ask if they are real or not. It does take me a little longer to layer the mascara, but it´s totally worth it.
The Best Mascara
Sharon from Savannah, Georgia
I've always hated putting on my mascara due to the fact I always made a mess of it. Let me tell you this is the best mascara I have ever used!!! No more mess and my lashes look long and full. So glad I tried it and you will be too. Love it!!!
Best Mascara Ever

This is the best precision mascara that won't flake all over you face. Amazing product!
Janae from New Jersey
I love this not clumpy makes my lashes look great 😊
First time using, I love it.
Jill from San Antonio, Texas
My first time buying and trying. I do not have lashes but with this my lashes are very visible. I will be buying it again!
The best Tarte mascara!
Sammi from California
This is my favorite Tarte mascara! I have tried the big ego mascara and the lights camera lashes but they don't compare to the Maneater mascara! It didn't look clumpy or have any fall out. It makes my eyelashes look very long and full. I definitely recommend this product!
Love this mascara!
Hbh from New Mexico
One coat is enough but if you want more of a dramatic look, two coats is the way to go!!
Love this!!! 100% recommended!

Makes my lashes look soo long and beautiful without looking clumpy or flaky!

I don't know how this has such a high rating. Maybe it's paid for by the maker. This mascara does not impress me. 'Better than Sex' and 'Bang!' Are both better than this. I put multiple coats on and I'm not getting the results I did from the two products I mentioned before. I just wanted to try something new, to see what else is out there. And the bristles on the wand... DUMB!!! There are not bristles sticking out all around the wand, there are only TINY, SHORT bristles on three areas of the wand. Dumbest concept ever. I won't buy this again. Huge waste of money.

i'm unsure about what the hype is about.. it's a good mascara of course- didnt smudge, flake, and the end result was pretty. however, i HATE the bristles/brush and honestly, it didn't really WOW me. i used my trusty lancôme primer with it (and trust me when i say it's amazing and it works with every mascara i own) but the end result was still just "nice". i bought this on sale (plus an extra discount) so i will continue to use it but i will not repurchase at full price. try lancôme lash idole or maybelline sky high with the lancôme primer!! (if you hate sky high try it again after it dries out a bit and i promise it's amazing)

My go to mascara and I have tried them all !
Switched from Roller Lash (another great product!)
JUSTME from SPRINGFIELD, MO
I have been using Roller Lash for a long time and loved it. On my last order, Ulta sent me a sample of Maneater. I wasn't looking to switch, but found myself reaching past my full-size Roller Lash to use my little sample. Once it was used up, I realized I liked it better!
Worst mascara Ive ever tried
Sanny from Texas
When I apply it either looks like its not adding anything or it looks extremely clumpy. Way worse than most $3-5 mascaras Ive tried.
