Rated 4.1 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review I'm always getting asked if I have fake eyelashes on!
I'm obsessed! I am the girl who would put on at least four layers of mascara! You can never have too much mascara right!? This mascara I can get great volume and length in one coat but for my glam days I'll still do maybe two. I also struggle with super oily skin so every mascara usually ends up under my eyes (even the water proof ones) but this one does not! And it's so cheap! Hands down never buying another mascara again!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not Sure If I am Sold On this one
The jury is still out on this mascara. I chose it because I read the very high reviews and was impress with those plus the good price. The first time I wore it I happened to lay down to take a nap cuz I wasn't feeling so hot, and when I woke up I had dark smudges under my eyes and little mascara left on the lashes. My eyes had been a bit watery due to my allergies and apparently I had some tearing during my nap. This tearing is exactly why I wanted a good waterproof mascara, especially for my lower lashes. I will continue to use it to see if I can "establish a better relationship with it" to get it to help me reach my mascara goals. Again, it was a good price so it would be worth my while to try again!

This is a great mascara for CHEAP!

Product smudges all over my under eye without me getting my face wet. And it's definitely not water proof
Wanted to love
Mikayla from Portland, oregon
Clumpy, extremely flakey, definitely NOT smudge proof. There is so much mascara transfer on my under eye after work that I look like a raccoon.
Wish the formula was better!

my new fav from U.S.
this mascara is better than the too faced bts!!! it separates and adds so much volume without clumping. I wouldn't recommend for the bottom lashed since the wand is so big but it works wonder for the top lashes!! v waterproof!
Rosie from Peoria, AZ
This is an amazing product! It gives my lashes so much VOLUME! Definitely will buy this over and over again.
Becky from Dallas
The brush is very large and makes quite a mess. I've tried a few times now and it just ends up ruining my eyeshadow. When I could I cleaned it up and continued to wear during the day. It kept flaking off and getting n my eyes.
Halli from Florida
I loved this mascara, It is honestly such a great dupe! Good price and amazing quality. I chose this mascara over a too faced mascara because i felt it was such a good quality.
scg from michigan
clumpy, flakes off, and doesn't hold a curl. if you have stubborn and straight eyelashes like me this mascara will do nothing for you.
wendy from san diego, ca
This gives me a more natural look rather than a dramatic false-lash effect. It works well as long as I don't layer too much. With 1-2 coats, my lashes look defined and still soft. The brush is quite big which can be difficult to use, but it also makes application very quick in the morning. It's not amazing at holding a curl but it doesn't weigh them down either, which is good enough for me. Overall this is a great cheap mascara.
Tori from Pa
Love this mascara , gave me the long hold look I was looking for!
i love this product!!!
jen from flagstaff, az
This is the first time ive bought this brand and i can honestly say that i am in love. The formula keeps my stubborn lashes curled and adds lots of volume. And even though it is waterproof, its easy to wash off without taking all my natural lashes off like other brands.
Lgirl from Austin
The worst application. It was super dry and clumpy. I chunked the tube in the trash after first use. Flaked off the rest of the day.
Terrible. Just. Terrible
Sel from New York
I love Essence but they really didn't do it this time. I've been looking for a good mascara that gives great volume to my lashes. I wanted to try a waterproof one just to avoid smudges through out the day. However, this product is WAYYYY too waterproof. It took me a good 2 days to fully take this off. It ripped out so many eyelashes. Wouldn't recommend.
I would buy this again

One use makes a difference on your eyes
Evo from Arizona
its a nice everyday mascara but it's it a lil crispy feeling and the brush is HUGE. I have pretty curly thick lashes already but did have to be careful when applying more than usual.
Rory from Warren Oh
Packages says smudge free but it smudged even with setting spray.
Shanika from Burton, MI
It's definitely waterproof. It took some doing to come off, but I'm sure I'll get better at it.
Favorite waterproof mascara
Jojo from Chicago, IL
This is my favorite mascara. It holds a curl and lasts all day. You'll have beautiful thick eyelashes with this.
Best Waterproof Mascara

Love this Waterproof Mascara. Perfect coverage and it didn't run or smudge.
No worth it
Lucy from Longview wa
I wanted volume. This is not thick enough.
Favorite Affordable Mascara
Jackie T. from Newport News, Va
Love this mascara! It's affordable and does exactly what I need it to. It adds volume while staying In place when my eyes water on occasions from allergies
Momm from Ca
Mascara is HUMID PROOF!! Didn't hold up while swimming but neither do other "waterproof" mascaras that I've tried. Good for the price. It definitely gave me volume, not tons of length but that could be my natural lashes versus the actual formula. It does dry pretty quick and I didn't clump while applying the second layer.
I won't buy this brand again for waterproof mascara.
ArizonaChic from Arizona
This is a cheap mascara, but for the price you can get designer labels somewhere else. It's greasy and smears - especially when washing your face. I have to follow-up with wipes.
I would not recommend this product
Lee from New Zealand
It's not really waterproof and it's definitely not smudge proof
