Most Helpful Positive Review It gives me life!
This has got to be the best mascara I've used by far. It curls my lashes and keeps the curl the whole time it is applied. Builds very easily without getting clumpy too. As you can see in the picture the left eye has mascara while the right doesn't. A huge difference made in a couple swipes!
Most Helpful Critical Review Really really not for me, not sure what people see in this!
I'm always on the hunt for the *best* mascara, so I research, read reviews, watch youtube video reviews, you name it. Clearly the reviews of this mascara are fantastic but I truly can not understand how that's possible. The brush is that hard plastic kind - as opposed to the soft fiber kind. So i'd repeatedly poke myself in the inner corner of my eye when trying to get the tiny lashes (I've applied mascara 394329875 times, so it's not for lack of experience) The formula is very wet, as in it kind of glides right through them, instead of letting you build up volume. I have shorter, lighter lashes and while this did lengthen them, it just made me look like I had longer, spindly, lashes. Very odd looking. When trying to build any volume at all it became incredibly clumpy. If you have FULL long lashes and just need enhancement, this is probably fine. If you have lashes that actually need the help of a mascara to be fuller/longer then look elsewhere. I actually had to just buck up and buy my old standby L'Oreal voluminous mascara and toss this one. Not worth the few bucks for the hassle.

I remember trying this mascara years ago and ended up not liking it. I saw that they were advertising it again so I thought they reformulated it. I was wrong, it was exactly how I remembered it being and I ended up not liking it again. It smudges on my under eye and near my eyebrow. I had to get a second mascara (clump crushers) to separate my lashes. Regret buying, hopefully I can find a mascara that works for me :)

Clumps a little but works great 😌
VG from CA
Literally one of my go to's. I feel like I was late to the game trying this and definitely love it. It gives my lashes good length and easy to take off.

Makes your eyelashes full and voluminous

This mascara can clump so so quick. You need to be careful. Not worth the hassle for me, but it's ok
JJ from Chicago
The brush gives my lashes great extensions!
holy grail. the only mascara i will use
nicole from maine
i've tried so many mascaras. any essence mascara? no, try this. a couple more dollars but well worth the money.
i don't curl my lashes but this mascara can curl them and hold them up effortlessly. the wand is a dream. there is no flaking and it doesn't run when you cry.

my go to
person from .
I have really tiny blondish eyelashes, but this mascara makes them look so good. It isint clumpy, and it makes them look so much longer. I probably wear this every day.

Makes my brown eyes pop!
Ana from California
I love it. With the heat and COVID I do have issues with it running a bit and getting under my eyes and mask but otherwise lasts me all day when just in the air conditioned office.
Easy to use everyday mascara
SB from TX
This is a great every day mascara if you want some length, some volume, and holds a decent curl. I first curl my lashes, apply 2-3 coats, wait a couple minutes, and curl my lashes again when it is almost dry. I've found this is the best way to get the volume I want while not having my lashes weighed down by the product. It doesn't flake or smudge on me and is easy to remove at the end of the day.

This mascara gave me my first ever allergic reaction. My eyes were burning and red for days, I looked possessed. I've never had an issue with mascara allergies before, and now I'm scared to try any other maybelline mascaras.
lashlady from OH
I've been loyal to Maybelline mascara since I started using makeup 10 years ago. I haven't had luck with the high end mascaras. I've tried almost every Maybelline mascara and I think this is the one for me!
one of my all time favorites
Noemi from Washington
definitely does everything you'd need in a mascara. Lengthens, separates, and doesn't smudge.
My favorite Mascara EVER!
AmberS from West Virginia
Lengthens and adds volume to lashes. Does not smudge even after a long work day! A must try that you won't regret!
Love love love
Amystar from Dallas, TX
This eyelash mascara is the best. I have short eyelashes and I have to curl them before I add some mascara. I didn't need to curl them and they look great and long! Definitely will be buy it again :)
L'oréal Telescopic is still my fav
R from NC
this mascara is in between for me, i have pretty long lashes and this made them look like twigs. there is absolutely no fall out though which is really important to me! i would recommend this to anyone who has naturally thick and LONG lashes!
Olivia from Missouri
I got the brown color. Perfect for a natural look! Always been one of my favorites
This is my go to mascara. I love it.

I love the way the brush grabs my lashes.

I personally do not like this mascara. Although, the wand on this mascara had me curious but unfortunately all it did was disappoint me. Made my lashes stick together in one big clumpy disaster. Go for the Maybelline Rocket (in the blue-ish tube), way better!!
Kris from Arkansas
one if my favorites!
Love this mascara
Kristen from Alabama
Easy to build layers and separates lashes well
I always have back ups
Jessica from Brea, CA
I use this as my 2nd coat. I use a volumizing mascara (Voluminous or the green Princess once from Essence). I've been doing this for years... I always buy 2 when it's BOGO or there are extra points. Every time I've strayed... I've gone back. Use a different one for more volume, then this for length and a fanned out flare.
Not the best
Lauren from Lapeer
I found this to be very flaky and clumpy. It does help to lengthen but clumps them together. By the second coat it looked like I had clumpy spider lashes. There's definitely better drug store mascaras.
