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.

In 32 years of life this is the first mascara that I have purchased repeatedly. I absolutely LOVE this stuff. I like BIG, dark, not clumpy lashes and this stuff does exactly that for me. I recently started layering this with the grande lash mascara (not a huge fan of that one but I use that as the first coat) with two coats of this and man do my lashes look great! 10/10 recommend this stuff.
Dries out fast and clumps
Cup Cake Goyangi from Montana
I am disappointed with the quality. When I first bought Maneater mascara it was my new favorite mascara. It applied smooth and even, and my lashes appeared soft and feathery. Very natural. For about a week it continued to be my new favorite. Then it started not applying evenly and clumping. So it seems like it starts to dry out very quickly.
A must have mascara!

Great daily mascara

I really like this mascara. It doesn't clump or flake, that I've noticed.
Description on point
chels from long beach Cal
Does exactly what the description says. I am a definite stickler on a certain kind of wand (the skinny ones) and despite the difference in the size of wand; works perfectly. Separates, no clumping, good coverage.

Ally from Gainesville, FL
I used to swear by the Better Than Sex mascara, but omg this stuff is amazing! Gives the PERFECT amount of length and volume without clumping. I've gotten comments on if I'm wearing falsies. 10000% would recommend!

just two coats.it looks like I have lashes on
One try, tossed!
Ladolcelindsay from Tulsa, OK
I found the formula to be quite dry. I consider my lashes to be reasonably long, but this gave them a stumpy and clumpy appearance. I had to finish with a different brand to fix it. It went in the trash quickly, unfortunately. Love so many Tarte products- this was not one of them!
Great for crying
Jerkuh from Stillwater, OK
After a terrible day, I had the most insane 3 hours of ugly crying and this mascara did not BUDGE. 10/10 highly recommend
Would absolutely buy this product again

What a difference
Colleen from Ny
Great length .. love this mascara
I have tried so many and I keep coming back to this one:)
DiMe from Wahiawa, Hi
This mascara is amazing. Really separates my lashes and lengthens them. I have worn to beach and it didn't smear or smudge off. It last all day without flaking. This one is my favorite.
Was ok at first
Rainey from Richmond, va
Was good when I first used it, but after the first couple applications it was way too messy and clumped up the wand and my lashes when applied. Made my lashes look crusty.
One of my favorite!
Justamom from California
Love this mascara! I'm contact wearer so my eyes occasionally get bothered but this mascara holds up really well! Worth it
My favorite mascara of all time!
Kylie from Marlton
I tried this mascara with low expectations but let me tell you I fell in love. Like I'm obsessed if you want a good mascara try this.
Best mascara I've tried by far!!
Marc from Wisconsin
Best mascara by far and I've tried quite a bit. People ask all the time what lash extensions I wear (which I don't). By far the best

I use this for my first coat to get the volume of every lash then use the benifit Bad Gal on top for the length. This combo gives the look of false lashes.
Great at first, flat later
Alex from Evanston, IL
I have dark eyelashes and small eyes, so in a mascara I look for something to lengthen and lift to open up my eyes. I *love* the look of this mascara when I first apply it in the morning after curling my lashes. It works beautifully at lengthening and separating - ZERO CLUMPS! But after about 2 hours, my lashes droop, and by the end of the work day my lashes are completely flat.
Not horrible but
Riah from Wa
Not horrible but I feel like the brush doesn't hold nearly enough product so maybe if you build upon it it would be better? I'm not a huge fan, my lashes don't look much different with it on.
Em from NH
I have short lashes so I like mascaras that separate and curl them since lengthening isn't realistic lol This brush is stiff and combs through my lashes smoothly without clumping. It also stays on without drying and flaking off. I've purchased this a couple times now and would do so again.
Stevie from Redmond, Washington
This mascara lengthens and adds volume like crazy WITHOUT clumping. And it makes it through the day without smudging or flaking. I use it with the eyelash primer by Tarte and my lashes are flawless.
why do people rave about this?
Jayme from texas
I don't get the hype. I have medium-to-long natural lashes, but I love insanely long lashes (wish I had lash extensions) so I really demand a very lengthening and volumizing mascara.
This is neither. If you're looking for a mascara that literally *only* coats your lashes with a black color, then this is for you. My lashes did not get any longer at all, and didn't get any thicker at all. Pointless unless you just want color. I hope this review helps in your decision.

I bought this in a trio Xmas ornament gift dec 2020 and I've been using it since! Love it. Doesn't give you tarantula leg lashes. Looks long luscious natural lashes.
Lash down the BEST mascara
