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.

Dana from Minnesota
This is an overall FINE mascara. Nothing particularly special- it's the kind of mascara you'd hold onto a sample of but should pass on purchasing a full size that isn't on sale. It's truly not worth the price. Definitely not the one I would reach for first. First of all- it needs a few coats to really make any effect- not a problem on its own but considering the other problems with the product- it's the first red flag. It also gets thick, black chunks in it that stick to the lashes and cause the lashes to clump together- resulting in a really unflattering look. It's also very flakey.
A positive though, it applies evenly after a few coats- it covers every lash. It's a nice, deep black and it lasts a long time.
Bam! That's some serious eyelashes
Henrietta from St. Louis
I got a sample with something else I wanted and tea wasn't interested in the mascara because I've been loyal to my brand for several years. However, I gave it a shot and was very impressed. I used up my sample and ran out for a full size tube. It's my new favorite and go to. It really does give length and dimension to my lashes.
Arianna from California
Overall, beautiful brush and i love the way it looks. However, the wear isn't very impressive, it does tend to run and leave panda eyes. Would recommend having a swipe of a drier mascara over this.
My favorite mascara...for about 4-6 weeks.
SAT from San Antonio, Texas
This is my third time purchasing this mascara (on sale) and I've come to realize that after about 4-6 weeks of use, the formula just turns into a frustrating mess to work with. At first, it gives great volume with clean separation and feels like my-favorite-mascara...then after a few weeks the wand begins to deposit heavy globs of mascara onto the lashes that are nearly impossible to comb through because they quickly dry into flaky clumps...that turn into smaller, spidery, flaky clumps with a comb. Even after cleaning off the wand the globs persist. In short? I won't be repurchasing this time!
A new fave!
Kat from Houston, Texas
Separates, curls and lengthens all in one sweep. I absolutely LOVE this mascara!!
Best ever. I haven't been able to find a mascara like this.

Shay from United States
I bought this with very high hopes. I'd been a loyal Better than Sex customer but over that last few years feel like the formula has changed. I switched to Bang and think it's great. I read reviews for Maneater and decided to step out and try something new. Instant regret. The clumps are awful. It does nothing it advertises. I'll probably give it to my 13 year old for her cosplay.
Separates lashes but runs
Marissa from Coon Rapids, MN
I have never had a mascara that makes my eyelashes look so full before! Usually I end up looking like Yzma from the Emperor's New Groove, but not with this. The only thing that needs fixing is it smudges to under my eyes so fast. My hope is that I can layer it with another mascara that doesn't smudge as much to help hold it in place. 5 stars if it was a one-and-done.
KJLuLo from Virginia
This mascara gives decent volume but it clumps so badly and runs more than other mascaras for me. I agree with other reviews saying it really doesn't last well for a whole day. I like the lengthening and volume but especially as I went more and more through the tube, it clumped worse and worse and also was drying out in the tube.
Empty tube after purchase
Jennifer P. from Chattanooga, TN
I have really enjoyed the Tarte mascara. Unfortunately I bought several tubes for Christmas presents and was highly disappointed when my daughter opened hers and found the tube empty.
Suze from Asheville, NC
So I love the applicator on this mascara. I think it's the best type to make king wispy lashes. BUT the mascara itself shrinks down after you apply and doesn't wear very long. I've gotten better longwear results from drugstore brands.
Antsy from La quinta
Was looking for a new mascara and I found my new love!!
I wanna love it but....
Jessica C from Hudson Falls,New York
I want to love this mascara but it smudges and runs under my eyes so bad. Definitely lengthens and adds volume, but it doesn't last the day...
Do NOT love it
Kitcat25 from Woodland,ca
I wanted to love it especially after reading other reviews, but I am not impressed unfortunately. It didn't give me any nice length or volume. So just sitting my collection now, it's not my go to, but i will use it of course
Bing bong from Indiana
This is a bouje version of telescopic but so so worth it. Not clumpy at all but doesnt curl without some help :)
My new favorite
christyns from Indiana
Just bought this the other day and I absolutely love it! I have naturally long lashes and this is perfect. The brush is perfect and separates all my lashes and the formula is great too. This is definitely my new favorite
Mascara from Idk
I love this mascara this is the only mascara i will use and i like that it does not make my eyelashes clumpy and it makes them look long
Runs under eyes
Jess389 from MI
Loved how this applies. Thickened an lengthened lashes. However, this product runs under eyes Terribly. After a couple hours of wear I have to wipe under my eyes, over and over. Every time. Disappointed. Go with Lancôme instead.
Love!! from Texas
I've tried sooo many mascaras and this make them look longer and fuller!
My Love 🥰
Dae✨ from Orlando, FL
One of the best mascaras out there! If you want major length and volume i highly recommend this product!!!
The only mascara that I'll wear ever again!
A from California
I have tried several different mascaras over the years and haven't found the right one until Maneater! In the beginning with a new bottle, it can be heavy so I wipe off excess mascara before applying, but it goes on so easily and combs through each of my lashes while making them look volumized and long. I will never use a different mascara ever again, this is the best one.
LG from Denton, TX
Maneater Mascara give me volume and length and I really like the application wand.
Terrible Brush, flakes
js33 from Ohio
This brush is too fat, no control, holds way too much product and does not go on smooth. Nothing exciting if you manage to get it on and it flakes throughout the day.
I've tried many mascaras…
kbtetz from Wisconsin
I've tried SO many mascaras but nothing works as well with another mascara or by itself. I usually use this alone and wait 30 seconds and add a volumizing/thickening mascara over it. I get so many compliments honestly, people assume I have false lashes. Truly, I do not give out 5 stars easily but this is one of my all time favorites.
i love !!
mandy from georgia
i love this mascara !!! i feel like i have nothing on !! def recommend :)
