  • "This is by far my favorite mascara that I purchase over and over. I always get compliments on my lashes when wearing this. It doesn't clump and does a great job lengthening. It doesn't smudge. I don't care for the waterproof version though. I get tons of mascara samples and this is still always the best one for me. " in 31 reviews
  • "Probably the most perfect mascara you could ever buy. Provides separation, length, and volume. I've never gotten so many compliments. People think they're fake!" in 27 reviews
  • "This is my favorite mascara EVER. Personally, I find that it trumps most of my high end mascaras. I use it every single day. It doesn't clump at all and the black is very very black. It separates my lashes perfectly leaving me with the most stunning voluminius lashes. it creates length and keeps them curled all day long. I use this mascara without curling my lashes and the curl from just the mascara alone if phenomenal. I always get compliments on my lashes and people without fail ask if I'm wearing fake lashes. I love that there is a waterproof option as well. The price is a big plus. It's under $10 but worth $35+ in my opinion. " in 16 reviews
  • "One of the best mascara out there. It really does "define-a-lash" it creates thick Voluminous long lashes And really defines each one. " in 9 reviews

I am sooooo picky when it comes to mascara. My lashes have a nice length and are decently full. The number one thing I look for in a mascara is definition and hold. Clumpy lashes are my enemy 😵😵😵 This mascara does a good job of providing definition and separation to my lashes. It works best to apply one coat and then wait 10 minutes to apply another. It is definitely one of my favorite drugstore mascaras and one that I would repurchase.

I have been a fan of Maybelline mascara since I started makeup as a teenager. The formula is great and I love how the wand is precise. Unfortunately, for me I'm part Asian and I have course eyelashes and they only stick straight out no matter any mascara, curling tool or curl product I've bought. So I can't give insight on the power of curling but I got good length when using this product. No clumping and lasted throughout the day.

I looove this mascara, especially since it isn't crazy expensive. It was actually the very first mascara I ever bought yeeeaaars ago, and I saw it at the store and felt all nostalgic so I bought it again and I'm so happy I did! I think this works best for a very wispy look. It's nice and dark, definitely defines the lashes well and adds just enough volume for me. I'll always buy this stuff now. 🙂

I can't believe I just used this mascara and never heard of it before. It gives super long lash results and no clumping whatsoever. My lashes not only look long but full and I love the brush. I would recommend this to everyone since it's so easy to use and gets even the smaller lashes that are hidden. I absolutely love it! I have to get more.

Easily my favorite mascara ever! I have been using this mascara for the better part of 10 years, and will cry if they ever discontinue it. I love the brush design, it really lengthens my lashes. I have long lashes naturally but they're blond so it basically looks like I don't have any. Two coats of this and I'm set.

I have very long lashes and Everytime I put on mascara and blink, I get the dots on my eye lid and my lashes feel heavy as if I've put false lashes on. With this mascara it is just heavy enough to enhance the look of my lashes but not weigh them down. This is always my go to mascara.

I seruously need an endless supply of this fantastic product! Me and my mother-in-law swear by it. Everytime I apply it people ask what I do or use to make my eyelashes look so long, a couple coats of this stuff and they touch my eyebrows! There isn't another like it out there

I hate this mascara! It is so clumsy and dries so fast. This was the mascara of my child hood before I discovered better products. This is definitely not worth the buy. I have blue eyes and tried the charcoal color and it looked terrible and clumpy

This is my all time fave mascara. I’ve been using this one for years! I recommend it to everyone. I like that the brush is made from that silicone/plastic material so it really separates and lifts those lashes for a mile high look. Gorgeous!

BEST drugstore mascara and a very overlooked mascara. If you like long and full lashes but not thick and clumpy then you need to try this mascara. It’s amazing and lasts a long time. I always repurchase this mascara, it’s my holy grail.

Does this mascara separate your lashes and makes them look voluminous?

Does this compare to the One by One mascara? Does this mascara give you length/volume? Dry/wet formula? Recommend or should I save my money?

Does anyone else have issues with this mascara flaking a lot? After a few hours I always seem to have a couple specks under my eyes!
