Rated 3.63 out of 5 stars
I've tried ALOT of mascaras. I use a growth serum, so I already have long, natural, healthy lashes. I wanted a mascara to thicken and accent my lashes, BUT I didn't want super thick. I wear glasses and the NARS Climax mascara provides the definition and thickness that I need without smudges or flakes. In my opinion, it's durable, but easy to remove at end of the day. This is my third tube. I have a tendency to hang on to mascaras a little longer than I need to. I like the mini size because it prompts me to get a new one at regular intervals, but that's just my preference. Overall happy with this product and the price point.
I had heard some amazing reviews from youtuber's and make up artists on this mascara, so I thought getting the mini would be the best way to try out this loved mascara. Now, mascara is definitely a beauty product that is viewed differently from person to person. For my lashes (mid-length, "normal" natural volume), it just doesn't give any WoW factor, so it's not really worth putting on, but I have tried mascara's WAY worse.

Would definitely recommend. Smells good too

I have naturally long, straight lashes and have to curl them no matter what. Any mascara (even top quality) would cause my lashes to fall back down due to the heaviness of the formula. With the Nars Climax mascara I curl my lashes as usual and apply the smallest amount of product to get them dark and to secure the curl. Not only does this mascara do that, but its also adding length which is just an added bonus for me! I highly recommend if you have naturally straight lashes like me and have had a hard time finding a mascara that keeps your lashes curly.

Love this mascara- it lifts, defines, extends and separates lashes so beautifully. Easily buildable for multiple coats without getting spider or clumpy lashes. I selected this as a sample to try and would totally buy after using the sample.

Wand isn't that great. Didn't feel product on my eyelash.
Stacy from New York
Glad i got this as a sample and didnt spend money on it! 2 hrs after wearing it it was all under my eyes and irritated them to the point they were red. Do not buy

This melts off after 30 minutes and leaves sludge under your eyes which makes you look like a raccoon. 1/10 do NOT recommend
Melissa from Norman, OK
I wore it a couple of times. The first time it transferred into my undereye, I tough I have rubbed my eyes. However, the second time I was wearing my glasses and after a couple of hours, the same thing happened. Do not recommend it.

First the tube is defective. Not always and not within a reasonable time to return. It just sometimes does not scrap the extra product off. I have both the mini and full size and both the tubes do the same. I love how this looks initially but it's the only mascara I've ever worn where my lashes cause black smears to the eyelids and then it smudges all over my lower lid. The lashes themselves look great all day but what it does to my actual face yeah I can't risk it without looking like a panda.

Perfect size for my makeup bag when I'm on the go!!

I love this mascara! Makes lashes longer but not clumpy!
JR from Idaho
Glad I got this in a sample pack instead of purchasing. The formula is so dry that nothing deposited in my lashes but somehow gave me flakes all around my eyes. Don't buy

An Ulta employee recommended this mascara to me and WOW was he on point! I was looking for a water proof mascara because my eyes are extremely oily and if I don't get water proof I'm a raccoon by the end of the night. The brush on this wand is awesome and makes my lashes look very full with no clumping. And even though it's not waterproof it didn't smear after a long day. Worth the price tag and the hype.
Shannon from USA
I have been using this mascara for years! I love it! Never flakes , lashes look longer and more full. The brush is my favorite, it's fat and coats all of your lashes without clumping. I prefer the mini over the full size because the mini brush works better in my opinion.

I am not a mascara snob. I've used Great Lash, Cover Girl, and for a hot second splurged on Lancome Definicils. I got a sample of this and used it to death, which is odd for me because I do not usually use black mascara and I usually don't go for "thickening" mascara. This is ...perfect. The brush is so fluffy and the formula so completely un-clumpy...and I can use a moderate amount so the black dos not seem as harsh as black usually does on me. I got the mini because mascara lasts a long time for me and I travel a lot. Really like this product. Worth the splurge for me for sure.
Stacey from Wisconsin
Was recommended a trial size to see if I like. And I do! Will be purchasing full size for sure. I use the metal Ulta lash separater after. A tool all gals need!
Amy from The South
This mascara is not worth the money it sells for. It's very thin and doesn't coat the lashes well at all. It also comes off very easy. Do not recommend.
KateB22 from San Diego, CA
I love this mascara, it defines beautifully and isn't clumpy! I find it nicely adds emphasis to my lashes and makes my makeup look finished, but doesn't look overdone. It lasts well without flaking, although it's not waterproof and I wouldn't even call it long-wear. Just an absolutely lovely daily mascara.
Marir from Syracuse ny
I've tried countless mascaras and thought you couldn't beat Tarte until I tried the Nars! It hours on easier with less applications. I think I found a new favorite! Love it!
Glammy V from Oklahoma
No falsies or extensions needed ! Love love love it !!
Vicky from Washington, D.C.
The formula was great-I have long eyelashes that stick straight out and this formula really boosted their look. Only downside is the applicator is terrible-I had to buy a different one just to apply correctly.

I finally found the best volumizing mascara. Boosts my lashes and is easy to wash off. Worth every penny!
Christie from Flowood
Thank goodness I just bought the small one! This mascara smudges every time I wear it! The under eye smudge. I even tried just doing the top lashes and it still smudged under my eyes!
KM from WV from Madison, WV
I am very particular about my mascara...I have to have a certain style brush (thick) to make it look like I have lashes...I have many kinds over the years, but always have stuck by L'oreal Voluminous Mascara...until now...this has a think brush and it makes my lashes stand out...I will def buy this again!

This mascara smudges horribly under my eyes creating that dark raccoon eye look. Personally not a fan of the brush as it is to large and difficult to work with. Skip this one
Cynthia from Atlanta, GA
I was just looking for a mascara that didn't flake. This product does what it claims: it gave me good eyelash length and holds up well after several hours. It could be less expensive, but….
