Rated 3.71 out of 5 stars
I have sensitive eyes now, and was testing this one day without any eyeshadow or even foundation on.... my hubby came up to me that day and thought I had a full face of makeup on (at the very least a light BB cream, etc), he was so distracted by my pretty lashes. He never actually tries to persuade me to buy more makeup of any kind, but he said I should definitely get more of this stuff. I have decent lashes, but this is my first time really being blown away by such a pretty mascara... yeah, there's plenty that are decent and improve my lashes, but there's just something different about this one. I've never tried out a mascara where I would almost be comfortable going out with very little else on, I weird experience for someone who usually wears at least medium coverage usually. I didn't experience any flaking like others have noticed, and I even experienced watery eyes from getting concealer too close to my tear duct... and it didn't run.
I bought this online and when I opened it and saw the humongous brush head I was actually disappointed. I can manage a brush like the BTS mascara, but this one made the application more challenging. It also smears on the top when applying. I am typically careful and take my time when putting on my makeup especially mascara, but this one takes more effort and despite the brush head size it is difficult to cover lashes evenly because it is too big and fluffy, I did get length and lashes look dark. I used about 2 coats and did clump up a bit. I will add that it was easy to remove. I will try again a few times, but may return it if I continue to need extra time to apply in order to avoid smearing my entire eye area

I got a sample size previously. I bought a full size one this time and I love it! I usually have a problem with flaking, but not with Magnum XXX mascara!

Takes a few swipes to get the volume and effect you want, but it doesnt last too long. It flakes A LOT throughout the day. Since using this, I always get stuff in my eyes and it's from the mascara. Was okay but wouldnt get again

The wand is so big that's it's nearly unusable! It does a good job at separating lashes but you can't get it down to the root without getting mascara everywhere. The pigment isn't super black and it doesn't volumize at all.
Miriam from Downey
Didn't like this mascara didn't separate my lashes and brush is too big!
Becky from St. Louis
This is my holy grail mascara for many years now! I get compliments all the time on my lashes and alway tell them it's because of this mascara! Nothing else compares to the impact and fluttery-ness of it! I occasionally try other brands that get great reviews and I ALWAYS come back to this one. I honestly don't want to pay this much for a mascara but I simply can't find anything else that compares. I will forever purchase!

This product really helps with lengthening. I have medium length pin straight lashes. With that being said, it does NOT hold a curl. Something I do to combat this is by only applying the mascara to the part of my lash after the curl.

The second this mascara dries it is flaking off and you have raccoon eyes. Even bought mascara primer to see if that helped and it doesn't. Will be returning this. Worst mascara I've ever bought and it's not cheap.

The tube is super-fat--not like the sample in front of the box at Ulta, so not what I wanted. Very awkward in your hand
The wand is also really fat, hard to manage, so it goes on gloppy
It doesn't flake; I'll give it that.

I have used A LOT of Mascara but this is by far one of my favorites! it adds tons of volume and length! I layer it with the these can't be real too faced mascara

The brush really distributes well without the spider look
Christina from Ohio
I love this mascara. It enhances my natural lashes and makes them look so long and full. I even had a couple people, my daughter included, ask if I had false eyelashes on. This is my new favorite mascara!
Shelly from Maine
Love Love Love this mascara! Lashes look so long and full!

it was sooo close to being my favorite mascara. my lashes stay up all day, it defines them well and doesn't get clumpy, there's just 1 problem and it's that it flakes throughout the day:( if this was fixed it would be perfect for me
Alex from California, PA
Great for volume- instantly flaked off after dry , was nearly off by end of day
Lisa from NJ
I tried this thought it would work, but I like Stila in the Gold Wand!
It stays on
Angelica from Sugarland, Texas
Absolutely LOVE it!!!
Renee from Albuquerque
I didn't care for this mascara at all- goes on clumpy and does not magnify lashes
Undisclosed from USA
I can't believe this mascara exists. No flake no smudge perfectly separated and flawless! Big enormous magnum sized lashes that are curled and lifted to the heavens!
Lora from Omaha
Doesn't clump and amazingly enough I'm not allergic to it
Brea from Morristown, TN
I would not buy this again. It clumps up and is just not a good product. I will never buy this again.

I'm really weird about mascara and have always felt like nothing works for me. Surprisingly this gives length and volume with just one coat! My only complaint is that it isn't buildable because the formula is so thick, but I still really like it.
Jess from New York
It's clumpy and hard to apple
PaintedToTheGawda from Texas
I was skeptical at first because of the spooly being huge, but it works!! I did have to wipe some of formula off on tissue, other than that
My lashes were super black and thick!!!!!
Will get clumpy if you do more then 2 layers, but layering is really not needed with this formula. It deposits intense black pigment with one application

I have tried a ton of mascaras. I like the big lash, dramatic effect. I have very fine, straight lashes. I find that after I use a lash curler, this mascara makes my fine lashes look like great! I love other Stila mascaras, but this is the best. I love that it is easy to apply and you only need like 2 swipes to achieve what takes 4-6 swipes with other mascaras.
IMO from Huntington Beach, Ca
It goes on very clumpy and smears very easily. Not worth the cost.
