Most Helpful Positive Review Holy grail
I'm very picky when it comes to mascara, highend, drugstore... I try them all. But they have to be waterproof. This one lifts my lashes like no other, it makes them full and fluffy, lasts all day, doesn't smudge, doesn't flake, and stays on until I remove it. I'm buying 2-4 every time they're buy one get one half off for the next few months. I'm terrified they'll discontinue it , Drugstore brands love to do that to me. I need a new tube every 6-8 weeks. I cannot be without with mascara.
Most Helpful Critical Review Pros and Cons
Going off other comments, it seems like some people got bad tubes of mascara. That said, there are still good and bad things I found about this. The good sides are that this mascara holds a curl (my #1 requirement), holds up to humid weather and tears (even a deluge of scalding ones), and comes in a color that is supposed to lean toward brown. I usually only apply on my top lashes, so I didn't have any issues with sticking. Even when I did use it on my bottom lashes, the stickiness went away once it was dry. I found that it only flakes if I rub my eyes, which I don't feel I need to do with this mascara. My lashes feel soft and flexible, so there's no afternoon wall where I can't stop messing with them because something feels "off". The brush isn't as plush as pictured, but does give my lashes a natural, spidery look that requires very little manipulation to perfect with just one coat. As mentioned in other reviews, there is a definite smell that does linger, but it's not necessarily bad and hasn't bothered my eyes. I do prefer a more brown mascara, so I don't actually care for the color. I don't think it looks very brown. The texture that this dries in is very matte, so it seems to absorb the light, which might be making it look darker than it's supposed to be, or they just weighed very heavily on the black side of the color description. My final note is that I can't remember the last time I had a mascara with a flammability warning on it, so there is that. I won't buy it again, but I'll probably at least keep and use it for dressy days where I want more curl control and furl.
Reviewed by 117 customers I finally found my everyday mascara!
Ana the Naturalist from San Marcos, TX
I heard about it through Pinterest as I've been in the journey for a drugstore everyday mascara. I don't mind paying for a more higher end but for special occasions only. I needed one that doesn't feel heavy and cheap to buy more often without breaking the bank. I finally found it and it's waterproof. My lashes are naturally long but it's been hard to find a mascara that give them a boost without going to far. This is my new favorite go to!
Thick and Clumpy
Nikpom from Indiana
I got this specifically because it says that it separates your lashes. The brush seems like the bristles are much shorter than in this picture and it just laid on the product THICK. It left chunks of product all over my lashes and if you tried to fix the clumps it just made it all worse. I really don't recommend it.
It's hard to find the right mascara that works best
Jill S. from Dothan, AL
It's hard to find the right mascara that works best and I guess it's that one thing way for everyone, but this Maybelline waterproof mascara works just right for me. I've tried high priced name brand mascaras with no results and this is the one of the very few mascara products that gives me the best full looking lashes. I've been purchasing this since this Total Temptation line came out.
Ocean from Arkansas
I was hoping that this mascara would give me long voluminous lashes but I was wrong. I tried it out and it does not work well at all. It is very clumpy and dry. Dont waste your money on this mascara.
Queen_mimi00 from Houston,Tx
I love this Mascara especially if you like a natural look its not a thick formula but it still makes your lashes pop.
Would not recommend
Isabella from South Carolina
Dry and clumpy and does not apply well
Sof from Miami
I personally like my mascara to be voluminous and thick and this mascara is sooo dry its impossible to achieve that look. The mascara doesnt coat your lashes and you basically have to go in numerous times to get anything decent going. If you like very light looking mascara this is for you
I don't think I will buy this again
Jltexas from Texas
It just was too much on the brush each time. Not used to that, so for me it was pretty messy
Sharitin from Miami
Wanted to use it daily, but it's too dried up
Underwhelming but great quality
JessTheMess from Indiana
This mascara is great for those who like to keep things simple. It's excellent quality but doesn't emphasize lashes much. It's very easy to use. This might be a good mascara to give to a teen or someone who is just beginning their makeup journey. This is a no mess, completely hassle free mascara.
Arose from Sioux Falls
I've used this for two years. It's a great layering mascara. But it does sometimes flake.
Slayley from WV
Love, don't discontinue!
Might be waterproof, but did not work for allergy eyes
Peggy from Kansas
I'll be returning it. Even though it has great reviews for being waterproof, it did not work for me and still left black marks under my eyes after just a couple hours of wear.
Blats from Texas
Super thick and doesn't take a lot of effort to get desired look however it does get clumpy and hard to take off
emma from san marcos
i ugly cried through an entire movie in the theater and when i got out, i checked the restroom mirror. And it looked great, there were no raccoon eyes at all!!
Allylou from Waterford, MI
I got it just because it said it doesn't flake, which is true. It does take multiple coats to get the desired look though which is a tad frustrating. It's also hard to get off with my makeup remover. Don't think I'll purchase again.
Shewolf from Detroit
I wanted to love this mascara because I do like a chunky mascara look to an extent... But this clumps way too much, and flakes and falls into my eyes throughout the day.
Just what i'm looking for
ReeseMarie from Florissant
i've never been a fan of like super thick and clumpy mascaras and i like a nice simple soft look to my lashes and this is perfect. not too goopy. A1
Favorite mascara EVERY!
Jas from Virginia Beach va
Smells great, again my eyelashes are very straight after I curl them I can apply this mascara and they don't fall the sent is amazing
I would buy again!
K from New jersey
I love this product and even though it seems clumpy when you take it out, I feel like everyone complaining was too lazy to actually try and fix it but using a spoolie or your finger to pick up the clumps, it's pretty easy! This product gives me great volume and never once has it gotten all over the place! I love it!! Also as a side note I would wipe the sides of the brush on the lips of the tube so there isn't so much product on it.
Laurel from Ohio
Guys, this stuff is legit. As others have mentioned, it does take a few coats to get the full effect, but other than that, I love it! It lasts all the way through the school day, and through two hours of dance class while still looking great. It flakes a teeney tiny bit but not enough to be super noticeable. But seriously, it makes my lashes sooo long and pretty. You need to buy this!
Holds the curl
luz from San Lorenzo
My lashes are super straight, this mascara by far has been the only one that can keep the curl on my lashes.

Kerry from Dallas tx
