Rated 3.73 out of 5 stars
I have thick lashes that are light and super short -- finding a mascara that at least gives the illusion of length without clumping, unrealistically thickening, or otherwise looking overly dramatic is a bit of a challenge. Received this as a sample and gave it a shot today -- it applies easily (the spoolie has a great shape that works really well for my lashes, adding some lift and curl), layers nicely and wears very well. My Holy Grail for black mascara, Better Than Sex, tends to give me raccoon eyes by the end of the night, but this one seems to stay put. It does clump a little bit more than I'd like -- nothing that a lash separator can't fix -- and because I have a fair complexion with red hair/green eyes, the jet black color is a little too rich for me for everyday wear, but I'm genuinely impressed with the quality of this mascara and I'll probably keep a tube on hand.
This is honestly the worst mascara I have ever used, it literally wears off so easily I think that I applied that mascara about 4 times in one day and it is not even dark you have to keep adding coats to it to even get that color. The applicator is hard to use and does not feel good on my eyelashes. I wouldn't suggest this product to anymore I would say do not get this mascara, there is no pros about it and just cheaply made mascara.

I didn't find this product to be clumpy - on the contrary, it gave me lovely fluffy lashes - but it wore horribly. My mascara was flaking and smearing all over in less that an hour. I got this product as a free GWP and I'm just grateful I didn't waste money on it. Decluttered.

Worst mascara I've ever tried. It's clumpy going on, flakes easily and the wand distributes the mascara ilunevenlt.

Got this as a free gift and tested it out to wear to the gym. The quality is great and competes with higher end brands. Super lengthening and coats all your lashes to gave a nice amount of volume. I will say this is far from water or sweat proof and smudged a lot after a visit to the gym. A waterproof formula would be fantastic and could be my everyday mascara.

I have tried many different brands of mascara. Many of the mascaras I have tried are way more expensive then this one, but they are not better. I got this as a sample and fell in love. Thickens and lengthens my eyelashes in one coat. Doesn't look clumpy and its easy to remove. I am sold. I won't be going back to any other mascara. This is a winner!

I love this stuff! I got it free, as a promotional purchase, and this has exceeded my expectations! Easy to apply, the brush grabs all of my lashes, and easy to remove. It holds a curl ALL day, even in the southern summer humidity. Does not transfer to my brow bone (I have long lashes and they touch my brows) and accentuates my lashes.
No clumps, major volume and length, holds a curl, doesn't transfer- what more could you ask for???

In the interest of transparency I did receive this item as a free gift with purchase of another item. I wasn't expecting to like this all that much since it was free but I was so wrong. I ordered a "brand name" mascara at the same time and I haven't reached for that once since using this one. This mascara makes my lashes look so long and full. I've found the perfect number of coats for me is two to get the look I want. I don't wear this on my bottom lashes but don't have any issues with it transferring or smudging onto my top lid even in the Florida heat. Give this mascara a try!

It thickens and gives length but it flakes off too much

I got this as a gift with some other things in a bag and I was really impressed with it. I have been using Lancome big lash for years and the few times this mascara seems to dry out faster than this one. It goes on smoothly and last all day. When removing my makeup at night this mascara comes off easy, no rubbing. I have been using this since August 2023 when the Lancome mascara staring drying up after a month of using it. I have been using Lancome big lash for over 5 years. I'm switching and the price is a lot cheaper.

Got this is a free with purchase bag; and it has worked better than my lancome, maybelline etc. Went on thick and not clumpy; and great for my shorter eyelashes. Truly so surprised and so pleased! Will be buying from now on.

I do not have sensitive skin or eyes and have never had an allergic reaction to anything, but this made my eyes burn! I would be careful with this one even if you are not sensitive to most formulations.

I got this in a gift bag from Ulta and I LOVE IT!
Roxy from California
It doesnt clump and i think it does it all. Lol Love this mascara!
Bb G from Denver
This mascara slightly lengthens lashes, but does so unevenly. It gets clumpy and lashes begin to stick together the more product you apply.
Jack from San Jose, California
got it as part of the free gift bag and this is the best mascara ive ever used. If you want smooth, clean, natural lashes, this is amazing. Even light coats on straight lashes are so satisfying. Just started using it last week and will def repurchase as long as it doesnt dry up.

This mascara is suprisingly good. My only complaint is the flaking.
Jay Tee from USA
I got this as a free gift with purchase, and was very excited to try it. Unlike others, I really enjoy the shape of the brush, I think it lens itself well, too getting lashes in the inner corner coated. It absolutely added length and volume and could even work as a bottom lash mascara if you handle it correctly.
The problem came when it was time to remove the mascara. I'm not sure what ingredient I am very clearly allergic to in this formulation, but it burned my eyes so badly when trying to remove with my oil cleanser and made my eyes really cloudy (and this oil cleanser never gets cloudy for me). Later that evening I noticed red welts around my eyes that were dry and burning almost like a chemical burn?
I don't see any other reviews noting this issue but as somebody with sensitive eyes, this was NOT worth the pain it caused.

I just stopped in the middle of applying my makeup to write this review. I received this full size mascara as a free gift, so I didn't have high expectations for it at all. Man, was I surprised. I love the full shape of the brush. It holds a nice amount of product, it stays "juicy", it separates and extends the lashes. It's amazing. Ignore any negative ratings here. It's definitely a full 5 stars! *****
Anastasia from Maryland
Has no curl hold and flakes off SOO MUCH. Ive tried tried this for days and everytime it wears off in 10 minutes. the flaking is TERRIBLE
Shannon from Sequim WA
I have tried high end mascara which were costly, I was surprised how my lashes looked, very natural and beautiful. I I'll buy again
Naj from MN
I got this in a free ulta gift and was so impressed. I couldn't find my lash curler and just applied this, I didnt even need the lash curler. It still looked great after a day of sweating at the state fair. I love how the brush is a little smaller than the BTS mascara as well, it makes it easier to use for me. I would definitely buy it again after I run out.
Emmy from Pennsylvania
This mascara is very good! It lengthens and adds volume like a prestige brand. My only complaint is that after a few weeks, the tube part of the brush starts to collect clumps and makes a huge mess. I have to thoroughly clean the tube every time now before I put it away. Just wish this wasn't so messy!
from West Virginia
I'm not sure why so many negative reviews. I actually like this. Don't see the flaking problems others have said. The brush takes a min to get used to but works fine once you've got the hang of it. I've used many mascaras. I'll definitely buy it again.
Jill from Chicago suburbs
I tried this product as a part of a gift bag, and I have found my new mascara! No clumps; big full lashes;easy to apply; one coat for half the price of the brand I was using. Overall, I'm having great luck with the Ulta product line.
Miss H from Chico, CA
The only reason I am giving this two stars is because of how it makes my lashes look. It dried out within two weeks of use and this is a reoccurring theme with this product. Been unhappy the last five times I purchased. I won't be buying again.
Steph from WA
I got this in the free ulta brand promotion theyre doing right now, and had zero expectations. I typically use Lancome Hypnose Drama or Thrive mascara. This stuff is AMAZING. The brush doesnt seem like it would separate your lashes well, but it does! Zero clumping. My lashes look amazing. Im buying at least 5 more to stock up. Love this stuff!!
