- "This is one of my favorite mascara. It gives great volume to my lashes and has a deep black colour. However, I didn't really like the waterproof one because it would really dry up my lashes and make them crunchy and it would take forever to get the mascara off. So, if you ever decide to buy this - which I do recommend definitely the one that is not waterproof. Enjoy!" in 288 reviews

So..fast forward to now...and 18yrs later. My lashes have never fully grown back in..but when I use the L’Oréal eyelash primer and then this mascara...well, I look like I have black, long, full lashes!!!
This mascara doesn’t flake...when I was it off, there isn’t tons of clumps of it with lashes strewn about!! I personally will always have a tube of this in my makeup bag and collection!!

After tiring of spending $20+ on higher end mascara, I began my search for a drugstore product that lengthened/darkened my lashes, and gave me nice volume. I picked this stuff up at Target on the recommendation of a friend and I was really impressed!
The applicator is your standard bristled brush, and the formula is a rather wet one. It absolutely adds a lot of volume to the lashes and makes them jet black, which I love. The one thing I don't love about this mascara is that if you aren't careful, it will transfer easily to the eyelid after applying. I've never noticed any issues with flaking when wearing this product, so that's always a plus.
To summarize - if you're looking for a reliable mascara at drugstore prices, this one is one of the best I've tried.
I like the look this gives, but I don't think it gives the most voluminous lashes. I would call them naturally voluminous. I prefer the tube after it's had the chance to dry out a bit. And I definitely like this at 2 coats. This wand has a nice taper to it and isn't humongous like brands trended towards for a while. It also has the traditional nylon bristles that I prefer. I don't think this gives much length, but it does layer well with other mascaras and doesn't ever clump up or get spidery. It dries to a nice soft, flexible feel and doesn't get crispy or flakey. One thing it does poorly is hold a curl.
My preferred voluminous mascaras now are CHANEL Le Volume De Chanel, Mascara and Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara .
I like that this mascara performs like a waterproof mascara, but it is very easy to take off.
