Most Helpful Positive Review Love the wand! Love the mascara... it doesn't budge!
Let me start by saying the I'm a HUGE L'Oréal fan. It's definitely my favorite drug store brand. I love the Waterproof Lash Paradise mascara, but I'm always tempted to buy new products... and I'm glad I did. The wand on this mascara is perfectly shaped for me. The tapered end makes it easy to get the inner corners of my eyes and my lower lashes. The mascara formula is also a WIN for me. It's thicker than a lot of other mascaras which makes my lashes appear fuller and longer. I typically apply 2-3 quick coats using the wand to separate lashes. I didn't have any issues with smudging or flaking throughout the day... in fact, I found this mascara takes a little extra effort to remove. But for me, it's worth it! I have very watery eyes, so I want a mascara that will stay put all day. The only thing that doesn't WOW me about this mascara is the handle. The handle bends in the middle to supposedly help with application. I don't hate the bend, but I prefer using it with a straight handle... PS, keep the small black clamp on the handle if you don't want it to bend. I will definitely be repurchasing this in the future!
Most Helpful Critical Review A clumpy look
I received this mascara from Viewpoints Sampling for free in exchange for my honest review. This mascara has a plastic wand and it has really small bristles. I really like the length that it gives my lashes however it does clump my lashes together. Instead of having 20 eyelashes it looks like I have 7 thick ones. It is not a terrible look but it isn't the look I go for. I like a much fuller look. I do however think that the mascara will do a much better job later on as it's used up. I have noticed that this happens with a lot with other plastic wands so I do think I will like it more as I use it up and it isn't too moist. As for the waterproof, it is ok. It does smear a bit if you forcefully rub your eyes while they are wet but it stays on for the most part. I do not think that folding the handle does anything to change the look and I do not think it makes it easier to use either. My favorite thing about this mascara is the length it gives my lashes.

Without exception, this is the best waterproof mascara. It outperforms prestige mascara, by a mile. Never clumps or flakes, and applies evenly to each lash regardless of repeat applications. My lashes stay curled without raccoon-eyes, throughout a long day. The bendable handle is not helpful, in fact it only gets in the way. Still, I'll be re-purchasing in multiples!

formerly used Lash Paradise from L'oreal, as well as TF Better Than Sex. the unique pivoting brush allows you to really lift and separate your lashes, especially after curling/priming. i love a dark, full, dramatic lash look, and this delivers. only downside, which is kind of dumb because *yes* i wanted waterproof, is that it is SO hard to remove! have to use straight oil to get it all off without ripping out my lashes. it does tend to clump after the first layer if you aren't careful, but if you drag the wand through your lashes slowly you should be fine.

Have tried several mascaras and I have decided this is a keeper. I don't have issues with it flaking like other mascaras. And it is really easy to apply to make lashes look longer.
I've been using this mascara for at least a year and love it
Eileen from West Sacramento, CA
I, specifically, use the waterproof mascara. Just find a good facial cleanser that removes it. Makes my lashes long, no smudges, and lasts a long time.
This is my new GO TO mascara!
Emmalee from Rancho Cucamonga, Ca
Absolutely love this mascara. It holds up extremely well overnight and in the pool! Also makes my thin and sparse lashes have a great presence. I always get compliments- people say I look like I'm glowing...I'm convinced it's the mascara!
My New Favourite Mascara!
Attila the Shopper from Erlanger, Kentucky
I LOVE the innovative design of the wand! A beautiful black! My only complaint is that the waterproof formula is hard to remove, even with eye makeup remover. But, all-in-all, a fantastic product at a good price! Highly recommend this mascara!

Best drug store mascara I've used
Why All the Positive Reviews?
Madds from Texas
I bought this mascara based off of the (mostly) positive reviews, but it was a complete flop for me. I have relatively normal eyelashes. They aren't especially long, full or curled so I look for all of those aspects in my mascara and this product just wasn't it. My lashes clumped together after just one coat (so no dunking back in the tube) and the situation would only get worse as I tried to separate the lashes. Ultimately I had to use a lash comb to break up the mess and by the end of it, I was still left with a spidery set of lashes that were neither voluminous or curled. Even when I used my eyelash curler before hand, my lashes would just fall in a couple of hours. I also bought my mom one since they were on a BOGO and she had the same issues. I really wanted to love this since I'm currently hunting for a dupe for my Lancôme Grandiôse mascara, but looks like it's back to the drawing board.
Lashes stuck together when using
Phyllis from Beaumont, TX
There was slight lift to my lashes, but it didn't stay for very long. It made my lashes stick together, instead of separating. It was messy to use and I had to do some clean up on my eyelids.

I have tried 500 million mascaras over the last 30 years. I've tried high end, low end, and everything in between. This mascara is AWESOME! I'm so excited I found it! I think the bent brush really does help with application. My short and thin lashes become thick and long and I get the perfect mascara look I want. Yay!
Made my lashes fall out!!
MsMam from Chicago
I wanted to love this since my favorite mascara is L'OREAL False Fibers in waterproof but Ulta never seems to have it anymore. This mascara does not lengthen my lashes like the False Fibers does but it is definitely waterproof. Everytime I wanted my face to take it off, I had at least 3 - 6 lashes fall out of each eye!!!! In the trash it went!! Please bring back the waterproof False Fibers mascara!!!!!
Best waterproof & lengthening mascara!!!
notailsclub from Maryland
this lengthens my lashes soooo well!!! and the waterproof staying power is crazy BUT it is also tough to remove, you need to use an oil to get it off . Such a good mascara for a drug store brand!
Absolutely love this mascara!!
Whit from Prescott, Az
I apply makeup quite frequently and this mascara really allows everything to flow together as well as being waterproof for I can cry and not looses my lashes. As well living in Arizona where is it hot all the time it always ends up saving me from sweating it off.
Did not lengthen my lashes at all and seemed dry.

I wish i saved the slip to take it back.
Isle from Three Bridges, NJ
Was looking for a waterproof mascara to swim in. Reviews seemed promising so I tried it. Was disappointed to discover that this mascara caused my eyelashes to stick together, a problem that only got worse when the mascara got wet. The hunt for a swimproof mascara continues
Great mascara but...
Sam from Dc
I do love this mascara. It's definitely waterproof and makes my lashes look great. I still prefer the lash paradise mascara. I prefer the wand for the lash paradise. It gives a more fluffy, wispy lash look. This one is good as well especially if you prefer a rubber wand.
Worked great so far
TJ from Michigan
I bought this because I'm going on vacation to the beach for a week. I wore it without any setting spray and it stayed in place all day. But I unintentionally tested it when I had a quick cry (tv drama 🙄) and sweated in 86° heat, and it stayed on, with no smudging or anything.
Flo from Montclair, CA
My lashes are straight so I need to use a waterproof mascara to keep them up after curling them. I usually use L'oreal Million lashes but when I noticed they were having a sale I thought I'd try this one. I'm so glad I did. I might be switching. The handle is a little weird but it doesn't effect the coverage.
Brilliant Solution !

This is great for so many people such as myself who have a visual problem when applying mascara, the bent applicator works perfectly.
MY LASHES NEVER LOOKED LONGER
Izzy from Los Angeles, CA
I can't stop looking at my lashes. It holds them so well too. Some mascaras are too thick and weigh my lashes down. They look so good. Please don't discontinue this.
OMG BEST DRUGSTORE MASCARA

Immediately noticed a night and day difference after using this mascara. Great lengthening and definition for my lashes. I love it!
B from Harlingen,TX
Used it a few times now when i needed my mascara to be waterproof and long lasting. Really enjoyed it. The bendy wand doesn't interest me much, but i can see it too be useful for others.
