  • "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

OK OK OK I love this mascara this is the go to mascara when you’re getting ready in the morning and do you want a natural fresh looking make up look I love the formula and consistency of this mascara it applies very smoothly and flares out your eyelashes naturally leaving no clumps also with other mascaras that could be difficult to reapply it if you would like more volume but this one glides right on over top of your first layer and looks perfectly natural and beautiful I like things that are low maintenance and this mascara is definitely my go to I feel like I can actually apply it without looking in the mirror when I’m on the go I give it a thumbs up.

My favorite mascara for years. I’ve tried lots of products that are more expensive, but I always come back to this one. It’s never clumping and it lengthens my lashes with every application. I recommend it to everyone

While this mascara might not be in all the commercials and talked about everywhere, it is the best mascara I’ve ever used! If you want long lashes that are separated and not clumpy at all this is the one for you!

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. 🙂

This is my everyday mascara. Even though it’s not waterproof, it’s strong and won’t run. I’ve been buying this exact product for years and will always have it in my makeup bag. The brush is awesome for defining each lash.

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.

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!
