I just love this mascara. I have always admired gals with long lashes and this gives me the longest lash look I've ever had! (I have tried every mascara under the sun, from drugstore to high end.) When using this, I curl my lashes first. The waterproof stays, I take it off with jojoba oil with no problem. This defines my lashes but doesn't make my fairly thin lashes look spidery: it volumizes them just a bit, enough to look naturally thicker. And the best point is, it makes my lashes look so much longer. I love the way it grabs all of the lashes, down to the little ones in the corners. I have hooded eyes, and the mascara doesn't smudge on the skin. I surely do hope they don't discontinue this!
This Maybelline CAT EYES mascara looks quite wonderfully, but is made with some extremely toxic ingredients, SADLY. Your eyes will turn red and become irritated quite quickly. NOT PRETTY. Too bad, I'd love this mascara otherwise and throw the other mascaras in the trash, but the irritants in CATS EYES is UNBEARABLE.

I was so excited to get this product but as soon as I tried to open the mascara the handle broke off. Waste of money.

Every time I wear this mascara my eyes puff up to the size of a balloon. So not buy this if you have any allergy problems

nothing holds my eyelashes and this was the only one that can ! I have tried so many mascaras and this was the only one please try it!!

I really wanted to love this mascara and have tried it multiple times over the years since I love the brush so much — it gives your lashes natural definition. But the mascara formula leaves flakes and will definitely leave some residue under your eyes by the end of the day :(

i've tried so many other expensive mascaras that are waterproof, but this is by far my favorite one! i've been using this for years! it is super affordable & buildable. with asian lashes that are straight, it keeps the curl in my lashes after using a lash curler.

I just stopped having lash extensions. The brush for this mascara is terribly thin and I am having difficulty applying mascara. The worst mascara I have used.

I love it so much
Melody from Boynton Beach, FL
It is great other than I didn't realize it was waterproof. VERY hard to get it off...took 3 full days before it was fully off my eyelashes & that's with washing my face several times, using make-up remover cloths, & micellar cleansing water stuff.

I have been using this mascara for years and it is still my all time favorite. I have tried more expensive brand and am never as impressed.
Nikki from Chicago
I used this mascara back in high school and LOVED it. Now I'm 24 and have gone back and love it the same! I will always go back to this amazing formula.

This mascara is amazing for straight asian lashes, or just straight lashes. Makes lashes look pretty and wispy and doesn't smudge. Only downside is it falls throughout the day (doesn't hold curl well).

Years ago I always used Cover Girl Marathon mascara and was so frustrated when they discontinued it. I've tried many waterproof mascaras and this is the best.
Tubby from Home
I loved this mascara it was one of my favorites since it first came out. It just dawned on me that when I use this my eyes get itchy throughout the day and my lashes falls out after I wash my face. I'm not talking one or two lashes I'm talking like six lashes per side. I think I'm just gonna reuse the brush bc the brush is what made me fall in love with it.

I like the way my lashes look with this one. They do seem to have extra volume. I curl them before I apply the product. It's a bit harder to remove because it is waterproof.

I'm normally partial to plastic wand mascaras but holy WOW. This is the best waterproof mascara I have ever used it makes my lashes look PERFECT. The key is to layering after the first layer is already dry, which I know can be tedious to some but I don't mind. This mascara is PERFECT and cheap?? Win solid 10/10.

I've tried most of the expensive brands and I keep coming back to cat eyes under $10 my ultimate favorite

Did the formula change? I've been using this mascara for years because it makes my eyelashes stay curled, but I just got a new one and my eye lashes are falling down as if it were not waterproof?
Very confused and so so sad

Learn from my gullibility and save your $$...I actually forgot about this my first love until I saw a YouTuber saying how her and her sister ALWAYS resort back to this ol' Faithful. So now I got all this other expensive duds that I can't throw away (they're full).. I did recently find another winner that I will use along with this as it just works. The very inexpensive one from Essence, I believe Princess something. Great and looks like falsies and even better after applying my @maybelline Colossal Mascara (I prefer waterproof)
Laurie from Florida
Thick, great coverage without clumps. I'm not sure what the other reviewers were talking about because I use the waterproof version and never get black under my eyes - and i used to all the time before switching to waterproof mascara. I was loyal to Great Lash for many, many years but this has been my go to for the last year or two.

I needed a waterproof mascara, and I'm not that picky (I am now though). Literally worst waterproof mascara i ever tried. Its very liquidy, so no matter how carefully you put it on it ends up on my eyelids (i have long lashes btw) but the worst part is when i put some on my bottom lashes and i leave looking good and then an hour later it's leaving mascara line under my eyes. I have tried everything to make this work before i wrote this review and it still ain't it.

My favorite part is the wand which makes it easier to apply properly and able to use less layers to cover properly.
