Most Helpful Positive Review Awesome mascara with tons of volume .
The first thing I noticed about this mascara was that when you buy it , the brush is already in the tube (usually I see the tube closed , and the brush separate in the package) . When I applied the mascara for the first time the formula felt very very dry and the brush didn't have any of the mascara on it . I thought it was horrible and that it was a total mistake buying it . But after the second time of using the mascara and pumping the wand in the bottle , it did wonders ! :D I was so happy ! It gave tons of volume and length . IT TOTALLY MADE ME LOOK LIKE I WAS WEARING FALSE LASHES . The holding power for curls , is amazing . Unbelievable ! You have to be a bit careful applying coats though , because if you put too much from the roots up your lashes might actually look worse , because it just looks darker at the base and gives as much length and volume . The great thing about this mascara is that it doesn't clump , even after it drying a it and applying more coats . Many people have complained about the rose smell , but honestly you don't even notice it unless you put your nose right to the brush .
When taking this off it's quite easy for a waterproof mascara . All I use is make up remover pads that's not even formulated for waterproof mascara . This mascara also does not smudge a whole lot . You might need to touch up a bit , especially if you have oily skin , like me . But otherwise it's a great mascara (:
Most Helpful Critical Review goes on GREAT, but gave me raccoon eyes!
When I first tried this, I absolutely LOVED the way it went on, but after only an hour or so, I had raccoon eyes.
I tried to put up w/it for a full two weeks, but over the holidays, every time I passed by a mirror (bathroom & elsewhere), I saw the tell-tale black under-eye smudges/smears...GRRRRRRRRRR! I just threw it away & used my previous Maybelline Classic Volume Express Waterproof, which I was SO glad that I hadn't thrown away...still smudges, but not NEARLY as badly.
I have long lashes that are extremely straight. I curl them, and waterproof mascara holds the curl (unlike non-waterproof!), but I am in a continual quest for a good, TRULY WATERPROOF, non-flaking mascara.

Been using it for years always get compliments
Used to be better

I'm not sure if the formula changed but this mascara used to be my favorite. With the new tube I bought, it was very liquid and thin at first and it was really hard to get a good amount of mascara on my lashes without doing 3 layers and waiting for them to dry in between. This is good if you like thinner mascaras, but not if you are looking for a thick, "colossal" look.

I have long lashes, but they grow straight down. This is the best mascara for keeping the curl locked in and never flaking. I have used the waterproof version for years and am continuously impressed with how consistently great it is! Also, I wear 2-3 thin coats and baby shampoo takes it off for me at the end of the day without irritating my eyes.
Does exactly what it says
Idk from Ca
This product was really good. It's easy to apply. Didn't even have to use curler. Great for literally any occasion.

This product was actually impressive. Didn't even have to use curler. Description of product is 100% true. Really nice and totally worked out for me.
Smudges with bottom lashes
E from California
It has a nice dry ish formula for people with lashes that can't hold a curl, makes them stay curled and look really nice and separated but doesn't really give volume but more-so length. It's great for bottom lashes but it kinda smudges specks underneath but they're easy to wipe away but still wish it didn't do that
Claudia from California
I've using this mascara for a good 6 years. I like it because it doesn't uncurl/bring down your lashes after you just curled them.
Lilly from Racine
I love this I've bought this product like 4 times and I've loved it each time

For long lashes!
Kim from Houston, TX
My eyelashes are naturally long and straight. This waterproof mascara is the only one that will hold the curl all day long while looking voluminous. For sure my holy grail.
Yvonne from Apple Valley Ca
Great mascara. Will buy again.
I would use this product again
Brick from Oregon
I have loved this because I have white lashes and it stays on even when my eyes water.
Definitely purchasing again

I have allergies, that's why I buy waterproof and this left me with huge black marks under my eyes.
Lorey G. from Oahu, Hawaii
I grabbed this product really quickly without even knowing the price and how well it is. I grabbed it because I was in a rush and I just needed a mascara from the drugstore area. Without knowing anything, I was really surprised how my lashes turned out when I first tried it out!!
Rachael from NV
Too watery, didn't do anything positive for my lashes
steph from los angeles, ca
This mascara makes my eyelashes look really good with just one coat. It doesn't clump them at all and it holds a curl.
Marce from Colorado Springs
Love this mascara
Hannah from CA
I have tried literally a dozen mascaras and I love this one. It looks amazing just with one coat. Hard to take off but worth it because it keeps the curl and lasts all day
Don't love it
Lauren from NY
Don't love it. It's clumpy and really separating
Snooks from Indianapolis
I was out on the town laughing so hard that I was tearing up and immediately started freaking out thinking my mascara was running. Went to the ladies room and there it stood, perfectly. I've always loved this brand, and when I recommend to my friends I always says "it's the yellow one". Will continue to use this brand, waterproof or not.
At first good, two weeks in threw it away
Deena from Montana
I really wanted to like this. It worked well enough for the first two weeks. I never pump the wand so I waas super disappointed to see that the mascara had started to get thick & clumped on the wand. My lashes stuck together & it took a lot of raking to get them separated. I will not purchase again.
Jane from Orlando
Lovin' it! Except that it is difficult to remove.
No More Clumps!
Rita from Orange, CA
The mascara is great! Truly a great formula no clumps or flakes that goes on smooth takes my sad lashes and volumizes it after curling them.
