Clumpy, not worth it.

By Lily

from Indiana

Comments about Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

I was really looking forward to using this mascara, but when I tried it it was very clumpy, heavy on my lashes, and within minutes of curling my lashes and applying the mascara, my lashes looked flat and clumpy. Very Unimpressed.

It's ok

By Kay

from home

Comments about Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

it definitely adds some length, but it's heavy. left my lashes very flat and straight even after curling them. also, my natural lashes aren't overly straight but this left them pin straight. over all it's ok, i wouldn't buy again but if you have very curled lashes it's great.

My Lashes Never Dried

By ARog

from Charleston, WV

Pros

    Cons

    • clumpy
    • doesn't dry
    • weighs down lashes

    Best Uses

      Comments about Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

      I really REALLY dislike this mascara. I threw it out after using it twice. Not only did it weigh down my lashes, they stuck together. After a few minutes I went it to try and curl them again thinking that my lashes were dry. Nope. They were still wet. I had to take a blow dryer to my eyelashes just to get them to dry.

      Never again

      By Nicole

      from Hartford, CT

      Comments about Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

      This is my first ever review, but I hated this product so much I just had to share. Lashes stuck together horribly, the product was very much like liquid in consistency and left black smudges on my eyelids, and it was so hard to build up multiple coats with this mascara. It was a big waste of money. It made my eyelashes look worse than if I had no mascara on.

      Move Over "Better Than Sex"!

      By Vera

      from Philadelphia, PA

      Pros

      • Comparable to expensive brands
      • lengthens
      • Non-clumping
      • Smells great

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Comments about Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

          I am so happy I found this mascara! Hands down, the best bang for your buck. This mascara curls, darkens, and lengthens my eyelashes without clumping. It also smells fantastic which is a very big plus. I have an entire collection of different mascaras, including the priciest ones on the market, but this one beats pretty much all of them. I really recommend it!

          NO more black circles!

          By Cloudbound

          from Carson City, NV

          Comments about Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

          I am an older lady and I don't want to be scrubbing, scrubbing, scrubbing the area around me eyes, trying to get all the smudged mascara off after I wash my face. I've tried to carefully remove it with warm water, soap, shampoo - I've tried everything hoping to be easier on my skin. I've always used Maybelling products and swear by them. Well I tried this Maybelline Total Temptation after reading that I needed to try a mascara that was NOT waterproof. This is PERFECT. I still get full eyelashes but with no mess when I wash my face now! I would heartily recommend this to anyone who is tired of the black smudges that're so hard to get off!

          from Tucson, AZ

          • Smells good

          Cons

          • Clumpy
          • Sticky

          Best Uses

            Comments about Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

            I love Maybelline products, but this mascara was a fail. It clumped my lashes together and was almost sticky. Very hard to take off and lashes still clumped the next day. I literally threw it in the trash after trying it for two days.

            I would never buy this again !!!

            By Vee18

            from SAN Diego,ca

            Comments about Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara:

            I had high hopes for this mascara .Unfortunately didn't love the product. If I could return it I would . The reason why I have such a bad review is because when I applied it instantly didn't feel right . It was too liquidy .I usually don't use 'much and really squeeze the excess of the mascara before applying and this product was way too heavy for my lashes . They literally just clumped together . Product was way too sticky. The reason I chose this was because I wanted to try out something new . I instantly regret my decision and will just stick to what I know works ! Which is the lash paradise by L'Oréal !!!!
