  • "This mascara is definitely one of my favorites! Whenever I'm wearing this people always compliment my lashes! This mascara does a great job at lengthening & volumizing! Perfect mascara If you are going for bold lashes! " in 2302 reviews
  • "I got a sample of this at Sephora and this is mascara has a funky wand, as I'm sure everyone knows. But the ball on the end works great for getting inner lashes or separating lashes." in 992 reviews
  • "So my mascara has always smudged after about two hours of wear, or I have to use waterproof mascara which makes my lashes gross after I removed the mascara. Since this mascara is water resistant it does not do that to my lower lashes. People keep saying the price is a con, but I buy the smaller tube which costs $10, so it is similar in price to the drugstore mascaras. My only complaint is that the spiky ball on the end of the mascara wand really does not work for me." in 592 reviews

I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I normally wear it for my "everyday" look or if I am going more natural. Darkens my lashes black while adding length, but without the volume. I purchased mine while I was working at Ulta. Oh, and it;s not messy and I have yet to have any residue in spots I don't want it!

I wasn't entirely impressed with this mascara. It's nice for days when I wanna do a more "natural" no-makeup look, but it really doesn't give me the full voluminous look I'm aiming for most of the time. It also smears like the devil, but at the same time is impossible to remove without a strong solvent.

I have always wanted to see what the big deal was with this mascara so when it went on sale at ulta i bought it. Its safe to say im not to impressed i dont really have long lashes or thick lashes and they mascara didn't really do to much for them and i also didn't like how my lashes felt after it dried down.

I love this mascara. I have sensitive eyes and ahve trouble finding mascara that doesn't make them sting or water. Not only was it super gentel but it helped my curly lashes stand out even more. Several people asked me if I was wearing falsies and I was able to answer with a smile Nope "they're real"

I was really excited to give this mascara a shot after all the things I had heard about it and the packaging was beautiful. To be honest, I was very let down. The product itself was very clumpy and just didn't seem like a good formula. I haven't bought it again since the first time I tried it.

I am OBSESSED with this mascara. I’ve used it for the past 10 years and have never found anything better. I have very long lashes and wanted something that would separate, lengthen and create volume without clumping. This product does it! The end of the wand is perfect for this with long lower lashes wanting to get full coverage. I lightly brush left to right with the top of the brush and it cover my bottom lashes easily. Lasts all day and does not transfer under my eyes, which is a problem if you have long lashes. Recommend 100% and I have tried everything out there in terms of mascara. This one is the best!

This mascara is only okay. I really like it because application is easy because of the wand. You get separation, volume, and some curling. It does last kind of long, and it doesn’t smudge. It’s not waterproof but it is water resistant. The downside, it’s flakey. After a couple of hours you’ll find the mascara flaking which isn’t fun, to have these little black flakes around your eye. Everything else about this mascara is so great. I hope that with all the reformulation and repackaging Benefit has going on they fix this one con about their mascara because it really has the potential of being an amazing mascara.

Pricey but worth it. It gives such a dramatic lash to an everyday look. I swear it makes my eyes look much bigger when I wear this compared to other mascaras I have used. I don’t think it quite gives a false eyelash look but honestly most mascaras just can’t. But it definitely gives great length.

I am really not a big fan of this mascara. It works alright on the lashes but it isn't anything special in my opinion, especially not for the price. The  Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara works MUCH better in my opinion! The brush is nice and it separates the lashes well but this just doesn't give me the volume or drama that I want. Also the worst part is this is absolutely HORRIBLE to remove! That might be a pro for some people but for me it would just destroy my lashes everytime I tried to take it off so I would end up just leaving it on and not even trying to remove it.

This mascara is phenomenal. Truly amazing for length, volume and definition. Its amazingly dark black. It's buildable and that WAND IS AMAZING. Seriously this is a great mascara if you want BAM lashes. It doesn't move either. The only problem I had is that it dried out my eyes just a bit.

What do you use to take off this mascara? I use coconut oil but I'd like to see if there are more options.
