Most Helpful Positive Review Better than I Expected!
I usually buy higher end mascaras that cost $20 plus, however when I saw this mascara at the drug store I decided to give it a chance. From the first application I was really impressed. I don't have a lot of lashes and they are thin. This mascara gave length, volume and curl to my lashes. The brush which is a pretty good size (I prefer thicker mascara brushes)also defined and separated my lashes very well and there was no clumping. I also found that the mascara also gave my lashes that "flared look" when I followed the tips on the back of the packaging. The only things I didn't like about this mascara were that it is just not dark enough for me (I purchased the "blackest black") and it felt kind of dry on my lashes. I think this is a mascara that I may buy as backup when I cannot purchase my preferred mascara.
Most Helpful Critical Review Ehh... Not sure how i feel about it
I have long curled eyelashes, and I loved how the mascara fanned the lashes out and made my eyes look so much bigger. The bottle itself also has a very sexy design. However, the mascara is clumpy INSIDE the bottle. It goes on fine, but sometimes doesnt adhere to my lashes when I would put it on. And when i would try to get it off with ANYTHING (water, cold cream, makeup remover, make up removing wipes, etc) it felt very gritty and sandy. If i got it in my eyes it felt like sand was in my eyes. If you put too many coats, the mascara clumps and looks like little sand particles are mixed in with the mascara. After i would try and remove it, the mascara woulsd still be there, on my lashes and in a smudged circle under my eyes. It is a chore to take it off.

I love this mascara! My lashes are longer and curler.
Pretty good product
Tomlinoodle from Fresno, CA
This is a great mascara for the price point. I always complain about drug store mascaras being "too" expensive, but end up buying $20+ prestige brand mascaras. However, this does cover all the qualities I look for in a mascara. It separates them but also gives them major volume. The only con about this product is that I have to repeatedly need to add like 3-5 coats to get the volume I'm looking for. I wait for the first coat to dry and then add another and so on. But overall I would buy again.
They decreased the size
NikkiB from Clearwater, FL
I would have given this product a 5 star rating since I have used it for years. However, I bought this along with another Maybeline mascara promotion and was very disappointed to see that they had significantly decreased the size of the product. I don't know if they slid it in since it was buy one get one half off or what but I was really irritated.
This Maybelline product is my all time favorite.

MY FAVORITE MASCARA EVER
Lauren from Cincinnati, Ohio
I have used this mascara for almost 5 years now, and will never purchase another mascara again. Begging Maybelline to never discontinue this product! Adds so much volume, thickens lashes, and is easy to use. I typically prefer thicker lashes, so I apply several generous coats to get the look I prefer.
I wouldn't not buy this again
Chelealise from Livermore, Ca
I was very disappointed with this mascara. From the start it clumped, flaked and dried out so fast. I feel like I had to use a lot in order to achieve any volume at all. I read good reviews which is why I tried it but my experience was not good at all. I wouldn't recommend this at all.
Falsies without the problems
Caked by cap from Atlanta GA
I've loved this mascara since I was in high school! It's the only one I use when I don't want to wear my falsies.
Teatheresa from Fenton
I have Asian eye with very little eyelid and straight lashes. This mascara lifts so that I now visually have lashes! It's the only one I've found.

Excellent product, great bang for the buck
Kate CB from Crystal Lake, IL
Once applied, no touch-ups needed. Have not experienced any dryness, crumbling, or clumping. Excellent value, does the trick! Applies evenly and gives great definition to my lashes.

My go to
Serenity from Clark NJ
I've tried many mascara but this is honestly my go to for years. It gives a natural lengthy look and is buildable. Love it !
VLynne from Monroe, MI
As soon as I pulled the wand out of the tube I just knew this product was junk. The wand is very cheap and flimsy. I put one swipe on and instantly regretted it. This formula is extremely dry and clumpy. Sure it gives some volume, but who wants their lashes sticking together and turning in all different directions?! Not me! If you're into the 'spider lashes' look then this may be for you, otherwise steer clear.
The drugstore mascara I always go back too
Kfly18 from St. Louis
This is my all time favorite lower priced mascara. Won't be for you if you are into wet formulas. Clumpy in a good way that builds volume but doesn't overclump. Holds curl very well. Does not flake!
Talulah from Alabama
I've tried a lot of different mascaras. This is my favorite. I've been using it at least 7 years. It's my favorite.
The only mascara I'll use
ashleynicole611 from Omaha, NE
I've tried other, more expensive brands, and this is the best mascara hands-down. It doesn't give me racoon eyes (like some pricey brands will even do) and it goes on evenly. I have pretty long lashes naturally, and this formula and brush combo are the best. I don't get clumps and the mascara goes on smoothly, with just a couple swipes.
Would buy again!

Always Stick with the original
Jennifer from SIOUX city Iowa
I love the original Falshes,blue righting on the bottle. I love that brush.I use this mascara as a "primer " For urban decay's Perversion 😍.However when I first put this on i noticed brush is different,it doesn't have that flat edge, it kind of burned my eyes at 1st also.Wore for over 12 hours, Very difficult to remove I had to use a 1/2 a bottle of micellar water and a clarisonic brush and I still woke up this morning with raccoon eyes ...will NOT buy this one again...
Curl - big time

This is the only mascara I've found - and I've tried many that curls and lifts my straight lashes.
HG Drugstore Mascara
Shelly from SoCal
This is my favorite mascara at a drugstore price level. People literally ask me if I have false lashes on when I use it. I have big eyes and the fat wand makes it easier to coat my lashes quickly. This gives you a very thick, long lash look. It's not natural looking or very seperated, but more like full, feathery lashes. I prefer that look.
Considering I have oily skin and apply it to my bottom lashes too, it doesn't smudge or run too badly (unless I cry or shut my eyes for a bit). It comes off very easily with an oil based face cleanser.
Best Mascara Ever!
Tiffany from South Carolina
The only mascara I have bought repeatedly. I have tried upscale brands and other drugstore brands and keep coming back to this one. Opens my eyes and doesn't clump, even near the end of the tube. I have very oily skin and I don't even have to use the waterproof one to stay on all day.
