I was definitely expecting more, especially since I love this brand. The wand handle is comfortable but it's a little too long and hard to maneuver around the nose and in the corners of the eyes. You don't get a lot of mascara, or at least it's not very wet or you have to keep dipping in order for your lashes to grab the pigment. I do like the bristles though, they ensure that every lash is separated.

I used the "New Formula" Volume Plumping Mascara, Black, .25 oz.  It is a decent value to the money.  I never tried the "old" formula, so I can't compare the two.  I do like the sleek packaging. The wand is fairly generic.  It does make my eye lashes look great.

I like this product alright but would not buy again because I have had a hard time applying this mascara without getting some on my eyelids or under my eyes. When I get it on though it is fine. And the inexpensive price is what led me to purchasing in the first place.

I used this product for several months, but I ran out recently and had to repurchase. At first, this was my favorite mascara. It always made my lashes look really nice, it wasn't uncomfortable to apply or wear, and I didn't have problems with it flaking or otherwise getting weird. I've tried another elf mascara (3-in-1, I think?) and I liked that one too, so I've generally had pretty positive experience with elf mascaras.

However, they've changed the formula of this volume plumping mascara and I'm extremely disappointed with it. It's really wet and thick; it basically glues my lashes together, and sometimes if I blink too hard too soon, it'll stick my eye closed, which is... not great, in my opinion? It makes my lashes look ridiculously spidery, and a lot of product gets deposited at the very ends of my lashes, which really isn't a good look for me. I'll also sometimes get little clumps of product when I do my lower lashes, which is super frustrating. I really, really don't like how this product makes my lashes look. I've included a photo of an eye look I did, including this mascara, so hopefully you can see what I mean. 

Also, a bit of a petty gripe, but I loved the original packaging; matte and surprisingly heavy. It felt almost like metal. The new packaging is a touch smaller, lighter, and a cheaper-looking shiny black. I don't love it. 

I adored the original product, but this new version is awful. I can't wait to get a different mascara. This has definitely made me feel less comfortable buying elf mascaras, so I think I'm gonna shop around for a bit before I come back to them.

It has a nice wand and doesn’t clump. It made my lashes look long and defined. It give a nice fanned look. It is affordable and a good drug store find. One of my favorites

I definitely do not recommend this mascara! The formula is just horrible and my eyelashes became really stiff and sticky. I had a really hard time cleaning it off because they were so stuck to my eyelashes and they were falling off! I wouldn’t buy this mascara again!

This mascara is really good to use because it does give your eyelashes the volume & the plumping that you would want for your eyelashes & it comes in nice packaging & I would definitely buy it again.

How does this mascara perform? Does it hold curl? Does it smudge?
