As stated in previous reviews, I am a lover of mascara. Cannot go without, so when I was on a makeup-shopping spree the other day at Target, I saw this on a side-panel and just HAD to pick it up. When using it, I noticed that, right away, my lashes looked fuller and longer - just like I like them! It's not sticky and does really coat the lashes. 

I personally always combine mascaras - I use one as a base, let it dry, then use another over it for a better, darker look. This one is good as a base for me. I really like how my lashes come out longer, still thin enough but they have some thickness built in now. I could just wear it alone and be a happy camper, but I'm me and I always double up. So after this, I reach for any other Maybelline mascara I own, mainly The Rocket, or I go for my Tarte, or Lancome... whatever I've found works for doubling up without clumping. Ugh, hate clumping... but this mascara doesn't do that. I like it.

The Maybelline Total Temptation Mascaraolute FAVORITE from the collection. I have really short and curly lashes and this mascara instantly added volume and length. And the best part, is that I didn’t have to use several coats to get the volume and intensity that I like in a mascara. Because of the length of my natural lashes, I can appreciate being able to find an affordable drugstore mascara that ACTUALLY WORKS. The product description says that it “builds lashes for full and soft volume,” and I would say the description is very accurate. And knowing that it is infused with coconut extract not only makes me feel the product is safe to use on my lashes but also the added bonus of knowing it can help my lashes grow and strengthen because of it. I also love how the packaging feels soft to the touch. I have definitely made room for this mascara in my makeup collection! Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara

Bought this online at Ulta. The smell is interesting. Its fresh but im not sure it smells like coconut like the description states. overall this is a good mascara, does not smear throughout the day. is not clumpy and is lightweight. I like the formula alot do think that the claims to add volume are true. I will be adding this to my mascara collection with no problem. I also like the handle of the wand. It allows for a good grip since the top is squared off unlike the round tops where its easy to drop/lose grip.

Review for: Very Black more...
I really like this mascara. The brush is very nice and makes applying the product very easy. It lengthens and adds so much volume to my lashes and it seems to dry very quickly. I learned the hard way that it does not dry as fast as I am used to though, and I managed to get it all over my eyeshadow and under eye. I'd give it a dry time of 8-10 seconds. One thing that really surprised me was the smell of this mascara. As I was applying it I kept smelling something so delicately sweet, and I soon realized it was the mascara. The scent hung around for a good two hours, and while I don't usually like scented makeup, the scent of this was soothing. I doubt the smell of this mascara was really supposed to be a selling point, but it was nice. I really like this mascara and would definitely recommend.

I’m a mascara skeptic and have gone through dozens that never seem to live up to what they promise they actually do. But I must say that the new Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara actually does - soft, natural, full(er) lashes with a light curl. They don’t look fake or cakey, and almost look like those natural lash extensions that cost WAY more. Overall, I give this stuff 👍🏼👍🏼 And just a side note, I tried this stuff out with absolutely no other makeup on my face just so I could get the most honest review on how well it works😉
I received this product complimentary from @influenster for testing purposes.

I got this product for free from Influenster. I normally use Better Then Sex by Too Faced and some other mascaras together because I have very short eyelashes. However, since I got this I have used this at my first coat and then the better then sex and I am in love. I was able to only use two mascara's to get the volume I want. This is super long lasting I fell asleep with this and better then sex on and my eyelashes looked as good as when I put it on. I am very happy with this. I do have a stuffy nose and was not able to smell the cocount so I cannot say it is there or not. Overall I will buy this product when I run out. I also really like the price because I am use to paying 25$+ so I am happpy this will not break my bank account.

I am so happy I got to test this mascara out for free from influenster! I have very light colored eyelashes so sometimes mascaras don't help, I tried this and instantly fell in love! I curled my lashes before applying the mascara, and oh my the color is actually black, it didn't clump my lashes together like most mascaras do, and it made my eyelashes look long! I absolutely love it! I also really enjoy the packaging of it, it's a thicker mascara bottle, but it's pretty it's like a matte pink and black which I really enjoy, the wand is a thicker wand then I'm use to but it worked so well! Even trying to get my short lower lashes I managed to get them to look nice! Definitely recommend!! Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara

As for the Total Temptation™ Washable Mascara, I’m such a fan!

What the product claims to do: Total Temptation™ Washable Mascara builds lashes for full and soft volume. Build on bold volume to create irresistibly soft, separated, and dense lashes coat after coat. Features a creamy and whipped formula infused with coconut extract.

-The product didn’t clump. I hate when mascara’s clump and my eyelashes end up sticking together.
-The packaging is bomb! How cute?!
-The mascara comes in the shade blackest black. I love dark mascara
-My lashes had instant volume, but they weren’t crazy hard and stiff looking.

None as of yet :)

I received this mascara, along with a few other goodies from Influenster, and being totally honest, it's not my favorite.  I'd read a ton of reviews on this saying that it was amazing, and it may be holy grail status for some, but it just wasn't a perfect fit for me. That being said, it's not a horrible product by any means.  For me, this is a great lengthening mascara.  I have long lashes to begin with, but this definitely helped to add even more length.  But, in terms of volume, this just didn't cut it for me.  I found that this mascara was more likely to clump up on me, and didn't really make my lashes look any fuller.

This is the blackest black mascara of all time. It's a little bit more of a watery formula though, so beware. If you accidentally hit your eyelid with this mascara, it will NOT easily wipe off. You will need a bit of makeup remover, since water did not work for me when I tried to take a qutip and remove the little black spot. This mascara washes off pretty easily with soap and water, but not water by itself. If you like that "clumpy" volume, with tons of black color in a mascara, then this is for you. I like how it doesn't flake at all or smudge underneath my eyes throughout the day. Highly recommend, just make sure you don't bump the mascara on your skin.
