Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect drugstore mascara!
I am so excited about this mascara! It gives me the same results that Too Faced's Better Than Sex mascara does, but it's less than half the price, and it LASTS better! I have oily skin and it I always seem to end up with rings of mascara under my eyes. I was shocked when I checked my mascara at the end of the day and it was PERFECT. No smudging and not a SINGLE flake!
The only slight con would be that it is pretty difficult to remove, at least the WATERPROOF version is, but considering all the pros of this mascara, I will happily spend a couple extra minutes to remove it.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's OK.....
I think this is a really good drugstore mascara. I, for one, can't bring myself to spend $25+ on a mascara that I change out every 6-8 weeks. I watched all the YouTube comparison videos to the Too Faced brand and was intrigued... I had succumbed to the hype. I personally think this has similar results to the Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara, but that's just my observation. What I REALLY miss from L'Oreal is their Telescopic mascara in the WATERPROOF formula! That was my ride or die mascara!!

I had high hopes for this. First thing I noticed was the very strong smell. I tried it anyway and it was super clumpy. Eye lashes clumped together and was impossible to fix.
Great mascara, terrible brush
MN Mom from Minneapolis MN
Love the mascara, even better when I used a different brush from an old Clinique mascara. The brush doesn't apply evenly, just weird design
Hanna from Pennsylvania
There's way to much product on the brush so it makes a mess. I understand that it's waterproof but it's insanely hard to get off and makes my lashes look clumpy
I would not buy again

I am not happy about how it is so difficult to remove with eye make up remover. Its crazy hard! I also was not impressed with my lashes with it on.
best mascara on the planet… really
DL from New York City
I have straight asian lashes that are a decent length (only because of grande lash) and I could never really find a mascara that holds the curl well even after using my shiseido eyelash curler. This is literally the best mascara for people with lashes like mine, and I've seen many people with long/curled natural lashes enjoy this mascara as well. I personally don't think it's hard to take off, I use almay makeup wipes.
Been using this mascara for over 2 years!
cindilou99 from NY
After years of buying expensive mascara's, falling prey to all they hype, I finally found what I was looking for!
I have straight eyelashes and this is the best for keeping them curled. I have to use a eyelash curler, but I do not mind, since I have always used one, but with this mascara, no wilting eye lashes for m now!
Nice formula but not a great brush
Brendagaylex from Fort Worth, tx
It's a nice formula but sticks my eye lashes together a bit. I used a separator brush but it still didn't quite come apart. I think it would be better with a different brush.

some say it's impossible to remove but I promise you if you use a little bit of coconut oil it removes it all with no residue. of course, wash your face afterwards. I have never needed to use any other makeup remover. I have no lashes and this is the only mascara that stays am makes me look like I have some.
AS from Maryland
Overall its a decent mascara but its an exhausting trial to remove, even with micellar water made for waterproof mascara.
I have tried a lot of mascaras
PS from Maryland
I really love the way this mascara looks. It definitely stays put. It adds dramatic length but not width. Sometimes in the pool, you will get a subtle collection under the eyes if you are swimming under water a lot. I think that is reasonable and to be expected. After using for 2 weeks straight, I feel like some of the product accumulates and my eyes seem drier. For this reason I only use it a few times per week, but it is my current favorite. When you wear it on a normal day, no smudges. You can cry and sweat - lashes stay curled and beautiful.
JC from Atlanta, GA
It lengthens and adds volume but the waterproof version is impossible to remove. I've tried every type of eye make up remover and none of them remove it entirely. I wake up with racoon eyes.

Makes beautiful full looking lashes but flakes badly.
Favorite mascara ever
connie from Chicago, IL
This is my go to mascara. I've tried others but nothing compares to this one. It's always a repurchase!
ThriftyBean from Illinois
does not spread lashes nicely. VERY water proof. spent the whole day in the pool and no running or smudging. tried to take off at night and i used makeup remover, I used hand soap, I tried micellar water. anything I could think of !! in the process of trying to get off it RIPPED OUT HALF of my eyelashes. it's still stuck on my lashes.
Clumpy, wet and super stiff when dry.
Gina R. from Liverpool, NY
Before I review this product I should note that I'm a diehard L'oreal WP mascara fan. I have used it for years and never had any issues. I picked this up with another L'oreal WP formula when they were on sale to see what was new and exciting. I was let down.
This formula goes on VERY wet. It splashes and splatters a bit too leaving little dots around my face and eyes. I do like the shape of the wand because it gets into corners easily, but I can't really gauge anything else about the wand because of the runny formula. It causes my lashes to clump terribly where the only way to save them was to seperate them with a dummy wand.
It does stay on quite well. There are no flakes either. I only use pure coconut oil to remove any WP mascara and it melted this right off.
A major problem with this is that because of the wetness, it is very heavy on the lashes. There is no curl and absolutely zero added volume. I also felt like I had wood splinters coming off my eyes because my lashes were super stiff!
I ended up returning this. I just couldn't take the extra steps for no payoff. I'll stick with my all time favorite L'oreal WP formula. If it isn't broke, don't fix it.
I only buy this mascara
Sally from San Diego
I love this mascara. It lengthens and thickens lashes. The price is outstanding.
Merced from Kennewick
It makes lashes longer
Works great with straight Asian lashes!
Daisy from MD
I have straight Asian lashes that don't stay curled at all, especially if the mascara is wet and heavy on the lashes. This mascara does the trick though! I curl my lashes first, then apply it (sometimes 2 coats) and it does the job! I've went through 3 or 4 tubes of this waterproof mascara now, and I'll probably continue purchasing it. You can actually see my curled lashes when I use this! Doesn't smudge for me. The only downside is that even with an eye makeup remover, sometimes the mascara is hard to remove. If you have stick straight lashes, I definitely recommend giving this waterproof mascara a try!
Elle123 from Pittsburgh
The brush seemed good at first and I normally use waterproof mascara but this clumped easily, even with one coat.
Grace from Tulsa,OK
I have eye allergies so I require waterproof mascara. This one is nice not too thick. Didn't smudge or irritate my eyes. I would buy again.
This product sucks . and it was a waste of money
Kynna from hendersonville
This product is awful
I would buy again
TX Butterfly from Texas
I use as the final step in my makeup application, after curling my lashes. This is one of the best mascaras as it keeps my lashed curled ALL DAY. There's no smudging or stickiness and works so well in humidity. I have straight lashes and need to curl them so I've used this with/without eyelash primer and it works the same. I've so many mascaras and keep coming back to this one. I don't have any issues removing it as some reviews have stated.
will never stop using
sam from as
i have used this everyday for like a year. i hate the normal kind, but the waterproof one holds a curl all day. i like how big the brush is. it never flakes or smudges. i would say it lengthens more than gives volume but i usually wear falsies anyways. i love it, just try it out !
What a Look!!
Moi74 from Sioux Falls, SD
Thick lush mascara that you must take your time putting on I've found. But when you do, the look is totally amazing & worth the time!! Longer lashes than I've ever achieved with any mascara, long lasting, waterproof as product claims. Only drawback to that is, it does take a bit more pressure to remove with my particular product I use for eye makeup removal. But comes off nice & clean!
Will Not Buy Again
Moi from Sioux Falls, SD
In addition to the cons mentioned above, I realized the brush itself is ill suited to the thicker formula. Doesn't allow you to separate out the lashes, causing the clumping. And because it's of a thicker formula, it flaked after several hours of wear.
