This mascara is the bomb! I can see an obvious difference in my look. It looks like I have fake lashes. Never get rid of this product, it has made me a life long Maybelline customer. Thanks!
I bought this close to a month ago, and I love the volume it adds to my lashes! But, it IS NOT waterproof. Last weekend my family had a cookout. It's obviously extremely hot outside. So I'm sweating. And my eyes were starting to burn so I went to the bathroom and it was because my mascara was starting to run into my eyes. Although it has great volume, I'm very disappointed because I spent MY money on a product that was obviously falsely advertised.

As an older women of 53, I have loved this mascara for years. I'm going through menopause and still was loving this waterproof formula. The last two times I bought it it was drier and clumpy. So I bought it from a different place and still didn't help. I'm sad, I loved this mascara, now I have to start my search all over again. :(

I see why this and other products was discontinued cause it doesn't stay on. And I'm glad my makeup was given as a Christmas gift I would give this a BIG FAT 0

Oily/Combo Skin: Age = Over 50 - This mascara started flaking immediately while I was still applying it. The formula was much drier than I expected, and came out of the tube looking rather clumpy. Even after removing the clumps from the wand before applying, the mascara continued to clump on my lashes with even just a single layer. I'd hoped that combing through the clumps to remove them would be sufficient to halt the problem, but it wasn't. All day long this mascara left little black flakes below my eyes, and it turned into complete racoon eyes after just five hours. As for being waterproof... definitely not. I live in a low-humidity desert climated, so I had to intentionally test the waterproof aspect. It failed with minimal tears, and with a light misting of water, and nearly came off completely with a single splash of cool water to the face. I gave this mascara three tries, altering the rest of my makeup application each day (such as applying before powdering my face as opposed to after), and it failed every single time. After attempt number three, it went straight into the trashcan.

Absolutely incredible mascara. Love it and have used it every summer since it came out. Incredible for super hot days, and even through hours in a pool!

This mascara adds length and separates my lashes so well! It's also so smooth to apply and rarely clumps, the only con is that it flakes if you rub it a little but not terribly. I'm combination with the L'Oréal sky high mascara, this mascara is a go to!

I loved this product over all i did notice right away of the semi strong vanilla sent so if you are sentive to that then I would pass, but nevertheless besides that great formula, and product overall

It lasts all day but it's very flaky and very drying

I hate this. I'm surprised because Maybelline used to be reliable for mascara. What a dried out clumpy mess. Waste of my hard-earned money.
Zosha from Michigan
I bought 2 of these. Both are dry and clumpy. Unusable.
Reneewill from New York
This mascara was very dry right out of the package. It took several coats to give any appearance of even wearing. Have used it 3 times and the tube is completely dried out. East of money. Try something different.

Does not clump on the brush, perfect color, even lashes, looks very natural

I purchased the total temptation waterproof since I like the Total Temptation mascara so much (peach). If you wear contact lenses, this mascara is not for you. It flakes off and gets on my lenses and it is a struggle to get the mascara off my contact. I will not purchase this mascara again. I tried it multiple times and had the same problem every time I tried it. I had to throw it out. The "non" waterproof formula is much better.

Simply put I needed a waterproof mascara for my grandmother's funeral service today. I've been wearing it since 9am, I'm writing this review at 1am. It's still perfectly on as I applied it. It has survived through various bouts of crying and a late night shower. Still on. Totally & Completely unbothered. I'm not a huge makeup person but to own a waterproof mascara is a necessity and this is the one to own.

This is just what I wanted. My eyes are sensitive and I have allergies. It covers the lashes that I have that are losing their color as I age. As others have commented it is not a thick mascara. Gives you light natural coverage, doesn't flake, rub off, or run if your eyes water. I could use eye drops without it running. Removed easily with a regular eye makeup remover.
Meredith from Seattle
not at all smooth and barely coats the lash, plus it crumbles after a couple hours of wear. pass

I used it once, it will probably get tossed
Clumpy yet seemed dried out
Everosetta from Colorado Springs, CO
Only adds color to my lashes. I expected volume as I don't need length. Made my lashes darker but literally no other effect. Did not create more volume and even straightened my lashes after I curled them. Do not buy.
Kitty from SC
If you want to buy a mascara that will do absolutely nothing to your eyelashes and cake up, this one is perfect for you.
Tammy from Rolling Prairie, IN
It seems a bit dry and not applicable. Can not return because I opened it. Mercy, how could I use it or attempt to use it in an unopened container.
Mina from USA
This mascara is the only mascara I will ever use and I will never use another one for any brand. This mascara holds your eyelashes curl very nice and it makes your eyelashes look super nice and gives that false eyelash effect. If you have stubborn eyelashes that doesn't hold a curl or other mascaras weight then down, this mascara is for you. I have super stubborn eyelashes and this mascara is sent from heaven.
Rina from AZ
Most mascaras flatten my lashes within 2 minutes of application but this mascara leaves them curled all day! Product does look/feel a bit dry tho. I didn't find that it was clumpy with the way I applied the product. My biggest complaint is that it doesn't come in a true brown color.

I was thrilled to find a waterproof brown mascara, and the brush looked awesome. The formula and brush both seem fine, but the opening of the tube seemed to be missing the rubber ring that scrapes excess product off. Really disappointed. This went straight into the trash after only two uses. II had thrown the packaging out, so I couldn't return it.
Mani from Kcmo
I like it a lot but you have to be careful cuz it can get a little clumpy

I've been using the stiletto mascara for like a decade and I love it. I wanted to try out a new one and was beyond disappointed. Just opened and it was so clumpy and terrible. All my lashes clumped together into like five big lashes and I looked like I had glue on my eye lashes.
