Most Helpful Critical Review not what you think
This product just clumps your lashes together in a goopy mess! I had to use other ways of separating them.The brush is WAY to big and I can't get to the base of my lashes or use the end of the brush for the corners of my lashes. I wont buy it again.

i love how this mascara makes my eyelashes look, BUT it flakes off onto my face throughout the day, & it BURNSSSS when it gets in my eyes. for example, when my eyes get teary from being tired, it burns my eyes very painfully. i just cried for the first time while wearing this mascara today, & it was ALL OVER my face & even black mascara tears were dripping down onto my shirt!! & all up in my eyes & it was excruciating!!
My go to
Andie from Monterey, CA
I've been using this mascara since it came out. Goes on smooth, gives great length an fullness. So good!!
Mikki from Arizona
I hate to say it but this mascara is fantastic. Very black. Makes my lashes look long and full. No running, flaking, or clumping. Best of all it holds the curl in my lashes, which are bone straight. I curl them with a heated metal curler.
Now the cons: Even for waterproof mascara, this is tough to remove. To remove it, I use Derma E Universal cleaning balm. Also, this mascara smells like petrol, no exaggeration. Makes me feel a bit anxious but it's worth it!
Not sure if I'll try again
Michele from Scranton, PA
I love this mascara because it doesn't clump, flake, smudge at all. What I hate about it is I can't get it off. I've been using baby oil for 20+ years to remove my makeup and it won't remove this mascara. I bought actual makeup remover and it comes off but not easily. Many positives, but this one big negative makes this probably a one and done for me.

Wasn't anything to rave about. Didn't add any volume, mostly just colored my lashes.
I can't even count how many of these I have bought
Esther from Sacramento, CA
This mascara is my go-to drug store mascara. My friend recommended this mascara to me in Middle School and I have been using it ever since. I honestly sometimes prefer it over high-end mascaras because it does not wear off and give me racoons eyes by the end of the day. If you like the Maneater mascara by Tarte this is a great dupe!
Watched a YouTube video and am disappointed
Hope from Columbus, Ohio
I heard great things about this product, but I'm not super happy with it. One good thing is it isn't clumpy and can be layered (to an extent). Otherwise, it's flakey and doesn't make your eyelashes pop.
Not thrilled but a classic
Michigan girl from Grand Rapids
I've been using this mascara for about 2 years (not using the same tube for 2 years — bleh! I repurchase and replace it every ~2 months). Since going cruelty free, I feel like there aren't many good mascara options out there so I keep coming back to this one. It's Okay... it's more gives more volume than length. It comes off easily and occasionally smears a little on my under eyes.
Love this mascara
michelle41 from OH
It's very affordable and looks amazing. It does flake at times after a while and is quite hard to remove but mascara removing wipes take it right off! I like the way the container is shaped so that fits perfect in my hand.
FAVORITE OF ALL MASCARAS
Noomie from USA
This was the first mascara I ever purchased. I love eat it in brow because I have blonde hair. Lots of mascaras don't even come in brown. After trying mascara after mascara after mascara I always come back to this one. It's one of the only mascaras I can actually find in brown as well. It makes my lashes look so good. Definitely won't be switching mascaras anytime soon.
Weird applicator, smudges, and flakes
Kari P from New Hampshire, USA
I bought this at a different store because it was literally the only brown mascara in the store (the variety I got was just "brown" not "black brown" and not considered waterproof). It is the worst mascara I have ever tried. My lashes are light colored, brown at the roots and blond at the tips, and I prefer brown mascaras because black looks too harsh unless I'm going for a dramatic, full face makeup look (which is almost never). Well this did not lengthen or thicken the appearance of my lashes at all, it flaked off leaving my blond tips without any mascara on them, and smudged under my eyes. The applicator is also very weird and the short bristles make it difficult to apply. I don't like anything about this product other than the fact that it isn't harsh black.
and with this mascara the color at the tips flaked off, I got brown smudges under my eyes, and it did not lengthen or
This is my go to for so many years!! I occasionally try othe
Red Queen from Gulfport, Ms
The applicator is perfect, it doesn't clump, I get a lot of applications per tube, I have nothing bad to say!
Syd from Tucson, AZ
I really like this wand because there are absolutely NO CLUMPS! I find that other wands have bristles that leave thick, clumpy globs on my lashes, but this one is perfect!
Solid, dependable mascara
Everyday beauty from Wisconsin
Have used this for years and never fails to provide a long lush look with out clumping or raccoon eyes. Have spent $25+ on others and always come back to this.
great product overall
Jen from New York City
It is very waterproof. The first time i tried to take it off nothing happened at all it makes sense because i used water. Most waterproof mascaras i use are waterproof but with enough water it will come off. Not with this one. I had to buy a waterproof eye makeup remover and it still was hard to get off. To me this is a con but it is also such a pro its perfect for sports and the final look is definitely worth it. The wand came orange but when i dipped it in it turned black (obviously) it came with like a little cover for the actual mascara (not the wand) im not sure what its for but it can be useful at times. I lost it so im not able to take a picture of it. It came a day before it said it would arrive and it was in perfect shape. I would 100% buy it again.
Amazing for a natural looking, waterproof mascara!
Cassandra from Phoenix, AZ
I have used this product a handful of times and you cannot beat the price and quality of this product. It truly is waterproof, I have worn it through my sweatiest workouts and it does not flake or run AT ALL.
I have very straight eyelashes and when curling and using this mascara it gives a very natural look. It does NOT give you thick dramatic lashes in my experience. But it IS great for a natural looking, everyday mascara.
Mascara to make your eyes pop
Heidi from Blackwood, NJ
I have tried many mascaras but I always seem to come back to this one. It's not expensive and does the same thing the $20 and over mascara does - even better.
I wouldn't buy over another one
Brianna from Arizona
I am currently using this mascara, I noticed that it clumps your lashes together easily at first strokes of using it, I tried to not clump them together but it's such a thick mascara that if your going for a spider eye or a thick separate lash look You would like this! And for the other peeps, you would like it to just get the job done and not to look closely at the lashes it might need a clean up around the eye if u try to get the outer corners of ur eyes lashes. Maybe I don't know how to properly use it I don't know Just my opinions 😗
Great for beginners
Maddie29 from Illinois
I think that this product is great for beginners who don't want to spend a lot of money on mascara. It was my first mascara, and I still think that it is a good product. However, it is very difficult to remove and it takes some of my eyelashes with it when it comes off. It is great for a natural look and it is great as a first mascara.
I love how it's animal cruelty free & gives volume
Julia from Charlotte
I love it sooo much omg it's amazing 😍 it's worth your money and it's not tested on animals which I love more I hate products that are tested on animals. The volume is amazing and when you take it off the volume is still there 😍
jenibeth from SLC
Nothing amazing or groundbreaking. I've certainly tried better drugstore mascaras
My favorite mascara
CFA from California
Been using this for years, no other mascara looks so natural and applies so easily.
JayJayCar from Solon, IA
No matter how new it is it smells awful and is super clumpy and messy.
Best ever mascara
Brandy from Marietta ga
This cover girl mascara is the best ever, I am 63 years old I have been using mascara forever but this one is by far the best
Not my favorite
Disappointed customer from Baltimore, MD
I bought this mascara because I could not find my normal lash blast fusion. I will not be buying this again. It takes a while to dry, so I always had to follow up with a cue tip to get rid of the marks above and below my eyelashes where it touched my skin. It easily clumped up if I wasn't careful, and once it clumped, that was it, no coming back. I bought waterproof and yet it still ended up smudging on my under eye all day long, so I constantly ended up with raccoon eyes. And then, at the end of the day when I wanted to take it off, it was IMPOSSIBLE. I would scrub with face wipes and face wash, then I ended up taking off some eyelashes and still couldn't get it all off. I would avoid at all costs
