Most Helpful Positive Review Beautiful long lashes but still a problem
The lengths achieved with this mascara are fabulous! I order water-proof because almost every mascara I've tried smudges under my eyes, and that happens even without using mascara on my lower lashes. Unfortunately, though waterproof, this mascara does the same. I'll continue to use it but I still can not use mascara on my lower lashes, no matter how I pre- or post- treat my under-eye area (with oil absorbing powders, etc.)!
Most Helpful Critical Review Do not like!
I usually won't write a bad review, but this mascara is so BAD I just had to write and warn others. It is horrible, the brush is wayyyy too big and sloppy and you get mascara all over your eye area. I threw mine away and went back to the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Waterproof. Not Extreme.Not ever again!

I have Asian monolids and have tried so many different mascaras. This mascara is the best and doesn't smudge even with all day wear. I am buying this mascara again!

Great mascara for the eyelashes that builds them up if applied several times.
Lasts all day
Kay from Granby, MA
I have recently started using this just about every day- prior too, it was just occasional. But I have found that it lasts all day, until I remove with makeup remover at night. I feel as thought it lasts, and doesn't smudge. Some times when applying it goes on "heavy" so sometimes the brush just needs to be wiped before use. But I love the brush style and long day last.
cried 2 times at work. lashes still looked bomb
lauren from the colony
im a server, so i've cried out of stress and frustration on the job before, and this mascara DOES NOT SMUDGE. sometimes i find w waterproof mascara, it's a pain to remove, but w a couple seconds of micellar water it glides right off. i love this mascara it's the only mascara that hold up and does what it claims to be. my lashes always look bomb w this mascara i get so many compliments.
Won't buy again
Sue from Littleton, Co
A little clumpy (was a told buy sales person that it isnt), looks like it's old stuff.
Too wet and clumpy
AnnamariaJ from Anna Maria, Florida
This is very wet and very clumpy. I have to wipe off the brush of all the excess. Once that process is completed, the mascara is great. Its just time consuming and irritating for the price.
Steph from Oregon
No clumps. No flakes jus what I need
Not very good
Sarah from Hammonton New Jersey
It looks good until you wear it for more then a house. I blink and it's under my eyes. I bought this because my other mascara was giving me the same issues, but again left with the same reason I bought a different one. I will try another brand, but this one was expensive
Debi from El Dorado Hills, CA
I have 4 weddings coming up with four close family members and know there will be tears.I wanted something that wouldn't run or flake. This mascara did the trick.I definitely would recommend.

The only waterproof mascara that never disappoints
I have tried many brands & always return to this product regardless of cost.
Love this mascara!
Grammy from Cleveland, TN
My lashes are very short and light. This mascara lengthens wonderfully.
taylor from Suamico, Wisconsin
This is a new mascara to me and is different then my previous waterproof mascara. I think I like it. I know it is long lasting and does not smudge. The applicator is what I need to get used to. It is a little bigger and thicker than what I am used to so I have to take my time when applying.
the most basic mascara
sunkitten from mid-Atlantic
I know Estee Lauder isn't exactly on the cutting edge of trendiness. But if this is their idea of extreme volume then I'd hate to see their regular mascara. This is somehow a very wet formula and clumpy formula at once. You can see the little clumps in just the first stroke. If you try to build it up, your lashes stick together and are very hard to separate. It doesn't volumize or multiply, and it provides no length. It also doesn't hold a curl very long.
The only pro is that it's definitely waterproof. It didn't flake or smudge. So if you want sticky, limp lashes that you can swim with, this is for you. Otherwise, keep looking. There are many waterproof drugstore options for 1/4 the price that perform better.

Love the brush and how even the mascara is distributed. Its waterproof and perfect. Great price too.
I would buy again and again
Deb from Manitowoc wi
I have used this mascara for a very long time. I use baby oil to take it off. It has got me through my sons and brothers funeral. It does not flake and it makes my lashes long and full.
Waterproof but also clumpy unlike it's non-waterproof cousin
Kelseyred from Seattle, WA
I thought I would love this mascara because of how much I love the non-waterproof version, but I find it to be clumpy. It's harder to apply and I don't get the definition on my lashes as I would like.
OK - Major clumping issues
ABOWL from FL
I was really excited to get this waterproof mascara, because the Estée Lauder non-waterproof versión is the best mascara I've ever used! Unfortunately this waterproof version was super clumpy from the first time I opened it. I literally have to use a tiny little comb to get the clumps out after I apply it. Once the clumps are gone it looks great! But it is frustrating since it's not cheap.
Klh🌻 from Ky
This is the best waterproof mascara I've tried so far. I keep going back to this one because it makes my lashes look longer and thicker.
Not repeatable for me
Mom of 4 from Springfield IL
This product made my eyelids become red and flaky. The problem resolved after discontinuing use. I thought it applied very wet and clumpy but once it dried it lasted a long time and did not smudge underneath my eyes. I returned this product.
Best mascara ever
Karen from Cali
This product is a life saver, I use it when I run
Abby from Michigan
I really dislike it.
Pebbles from Flaherty Ky
This is the worst mascara I have ever used. I love the one that isn't waterproof, but this was clumpy and just bad. I used it one time and threw it away. I guess I will just stay with the regular mascara.
The Lazy Girl Mascara
H Dryburg from Lawton, OK
Wow, I love and live in this mascara! I'm an avid Triathlete and this mascara stays on wether I'm swimming, biking, running or sweating. I seriously put this on and forget about it. Sometimes I'll go a couple of days before I reapply and my lashes don't fall out either. Now you should use the "Take It Away" to remove it but I only do that once a week because I can reapply over it. That's probably not recommended but hey, it works for me! There is no running or flakey mascara either. Sometimes, when I wake up, I'll have some under my eyes but a quick swipe with a damp washcloth will remove that. No more panic that I don't have any mascara on in the morning. Also, I have sensitive eyes and so many mascaras make my eyes water or burn, but not this one! I have probably tried every mascara on the market and this one is my fave! So get to living your best life and try this, you'll love it too!
Didn't like it
Cony54 from Newport
I don't know if I got an old item or what but was awful.
To many lumps, to clumsy to use
For that price??
I am very unhappy with my last purchase
