  • "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. " in 57 reviews
  • "First of all, the packaging is super nice! The masacra bottle is really soft. This mascara really separates the lashes and gives it volume. I absolutely love it! I would definitely recommend it for everyone" in 44 reviews
  • "Im really pleased overall with how full my lashes look using this mascara even after a single coat. The wand is comfortable to use and maneuver. The product applied a little unevenly at times, but was easily smoothed out with the brush. Each lash gets nicely coated with minimal strokes but requires a little more time to dry. Being ‘washable’, it does remove more easily than the waterproof versions I’ve used. The tube is thicker and longer than the other mascaras also" in 34 reviews

I love do a full face of makeup but often I go without because I’m pressed for time. However I never leave the house without mascara! It just makes the eyes pop! I have been wanting to try this mascara since it came out and I’m glad I finally did! It adds some serious length and it easy to apply. It stays on all day, yet is so easy to remove. Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara is definitely my new go to!

I’m not sure which color mine is, but I’m going to guess it’s blackest black because it is very very black. I was really excited to see just how rich the pigment was. It’s done a good job of avoiding clumpy lashes without wiping the brush first. As long as I don’t wear it on my bottom lashes I don’t experience any flaking or smudging. Has lasted all day and removed easily for me. I would say it’s a little crunchy in comparison to my Stila mascara. My lashes are permed, so I can’t attest to its curl power or hold. Still, for a drugstore mascara I love how dark it is and cheap.

Review for: Brownish Black more...
I'm really shocked this has gotten such great reviews.  This is one of the worst mascaras I've used.  It does feel soft going on - not sure how to better explain that... there are just some bristles that are harder.  So it feels soft going on, but maybe it's because it is a "whipped formula."  I don't know.  It says it has coconut extract and that might be another reason.  It did not separate the lashes for me.  It transferred a TON - both upper lid and to my under eye (before I even put mascara on my lower lashes). 

I regret buying this mascara.  What a shame and a waste of money.  I do not recommend this product.  Especially if you have trouble with mascara transferring.  And if you have long lower lashes, this  might transfer - it absolutely transferred on mine.  Bummer.

I just purchased this after reading reviews on here. I really like this mascara! It is very pigmented and adds great length! I love mascara and the longer and fuller my lashes the better. I would definitely pair this one with another mascara if I wanted fuller, more dramatic lashes. But for just day to day use with simpler make up this mascara is great. I posted a picture with the mascara on the left and nothing on the right eye

LADIES! I have to warn you about this product. If you want long lustrous lashes, this is a must buy for you. The packaging is sleek looks fairly expensive but totally worth the money. I now have backups for my back up. I initially loved the Lancome Grandiose Extreme Mascara, it gave so much volume to my lashes. Then I came across this one and I fell in love all over again. The bristles on this product is perfect, it doesn't clump up your natural lashes but gives length to it. 

The price is great, along with that every once in a while in the Sunday newspaper there are coupons for this item $3.00. I buy mines from either Target or CVS. Both are approximately $9.00.

It's a definite must try mascara, I don't think that you would be disappointed.

Review for: Brownish Black more...
I am not a huge fan of mascara so if I am going to wear mascara, it better be damn good. I mean, c'mon, we all know the damage that it can do after several uses. So I bought this mascara thinking it will volumize and add length. It did neither. I curled my lashes and I prayed to Jesus and nothing. If anything it weighed down my lashes. Granted, I was in a hurry so I didn't add multiple coats. Would I buy again? Nope. But I paid about $9 so you know I am going to keep using it until it's done.

Review for: Very Black more...
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

I have always loved Maybelline makeup and needed some mascara so I decided to give this a try. I will start by saying the package looks nice, but can be tricky to hold onto sometimes. As for the mascara it goes on very creamy, but is messy which I don't like with mascara. It also makes my lashes brittle after it dries. Not really a fan of it. Not the worst, but I've used better.

Review for: Very Black more...
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.

So yes this mascara smells better than 99% of other drugstore mascaras and it smells like a coconut and vanilla mix but it seriously didn’t do much for my lashes. The lashes went straight out and there was no volume and the length was average. For 10$ it’s on the higher price range for a drugstore mascara and it doesn’t compete with let’s say the maybelline lash sensational or the maybelline mega volume colossal in the yellow tube. I’d just get the lash sensational for 6$.
