Rated 4.23 out of 5 stars
I started using this mascara about 5 years ago with a coupon I had and it is now the only kind I use! I absolutely love the brush applicator, it goes on smooth and it is actually water proof! I use lotion to remove rather than soap. It is affordable and I look fresh all day :) I do use a lash primer that keeps my lashes rejuvenated and helps the application last through the day.
I was really disappointed with this mascara. Each time I've worn the mascara I've gotten huge black pigment of mascara under my eye by the end of the day. It looks so gross and unprofessional, I'm so disappointed when I come home or go to the bathroom and realize I look like a hot mess because I have huge bits of mascara under my eye--kind of surprising because this is supposed to be waterproof so you'd think the formula would have better wear, but it definitely doesn't!

I can hardly see to type this review. I gave 1 star only to write this. I purchased this mascara and after I applied it and my eyes immediately started burning. I've been wearing make up for 30 years and never has a mascara affected me like this. Its been 40 minutes since removal of and yes still burning.

This mascara was my holy grail all throughout middle school and high school and still is. Got me through those rough hot pe days WITHOUT smudging or running OR flaking! truly an underrated mascara!

The best mascara. It comes on dark and thickens the lashes. I use the waterproof mascara. It stays on until you take it off. You'll have glamour lashes all day long.

I've tried sooooo many mascaras and nothing has ever beat this one. A few high-end ones are similar, but why spend that much when you don't have to?!?

Waterproof, flakeproof, lightweight. Super affordable and the brush is nice and thick!
Maybellinemascara from Massachusetts
HUGE difference in lash length and volume
(Especially with multiple coats)
Lasts a long time ( I have been using the same one for a few months now)
Goes on smoothly
Affordable and good quality
Difficult to apply ( can run or smudge then)
Isnt that waterproof ( it does withstand mild interaction with water but does run and smudge a lot when encountering water for more then a few minutes)
Clumps a little (but easy to fix with a eyelash comb.)
With that said, i have tried a lot of mascaras and was absoulutley blown away by the results of this mascara. I have recieved many compliments and I will definetly be sticking with this mascara. I have tried other maybelline mascaras as well, and although they are dependable and all work well, this is my favorite for lengthing, volmunizing,and thickining. I don't use it on my bottom lashes because i haven't noticed a difference with this mascara there, but defintely works for top lashes. One of my favorite beauty products ever!
Best mascara from Massachusetts
This mascara lengthened my alshes si much it is a miracle worker. I have straight and short and sparse lashes, but afer cyrcling them and applying this mascara, i have received so many compliments on my eyelashes and no other mascara i have ever used compared at all to this one. An absolute must have and I will definelty be buying it again.

Smudges terribly. Bought new, went unto a meeting cane out with extreme racoon eyes. Only used on the top lashes
K from Ma
Looks nice when freshly applied but somehow this waterproof mascara ends up giving me raccoon eyes at the end of the day. I don't have high expectations for a drugstore mascara but a waterproof mascara has never done this to me. At least it was easy to remove with makeup remover.
Heath from Denver
This mascara wears nicely but my eyes watered about 30 min into wearing and I had dark circles foe the rest of the day
Need old formula back from Los Angeles
Changed the formula - not good anymore. Used to hold lash curl; no longer. Also not as pigmented:/ Bad choice to change formula.

This was the first ever mascara that I brought when i first started using makeup.
It was quiet a good mascara but after trying the latest ones in the market now i would say its not the best but a simple look can suffice with it.

This is my everyday masarca. It's a bit hard at the end of the day to get off. So if you don't wash your face well you will end up looking like a raccoon. But overall it's my favorite. Not clumpy, that's smooth easy apply.

It was very clumpy! The mascara just sort of flaked off.
I wish it wasn't hard to take off I expected more from the mascara but overall it was OK

Really good mascara it's obviously not the best one I have ever had but it does it's job. I think you just need to add multiple coats.
Christine from Casa Grande Arizona
I love this product. It works great and lasts long

I have this mascara in both the regular and waterproof formulas. For some reason, the waterproof one is somewhat prone to clumping and is also very messy- it stays pretty wet for a while after application and often transfers to my eyelids, which is a pain to remove. Once it dries it lasts a long time and doesn't rub off easily or flake off, to it's credit. The regular formula doesn't have the application issues but comes off a lot easier- I wish there was a way to have the best of both.
Pearl from Columbia, Md
Since this is waterproof, it is perfect for me since I have allergies which cause my eyes to water, but this mascara stays on which is a great feature!!
raquelovestony from Brownsville, Tx.
I use the colossal waterproof mascara ( yellow bottle) and I saw this new 36hr one and decided to give it a try, well it doesn't hold the curl on my lashes I had to recurl my lashes every 30 mins. What a hassle! And the brush on my bottle is nothing like the one pictured here.

Have been using this product for years and love it. No reason to change.
Lisa from Traverse City, MI
This mascara is ok- there is some running and smudging throughout the day. No flaking which I liked and holds the curl on my straight lashes fairly well.
jenniferc841 from undisclosed
I would recommend this product because it stays on all day with no re applying it makes your lashes look longer and darker it comes in a easy travel size bottle

Great mascara for the price! A little more clumpy than high-end mascaras, but not too bad and very long-lasting. Great everyday mascara!
hannah from united states
I felt this was more lengthening rather than volumizing. It has pretty good longevity but is a bit difficult to remove.
