  • "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 got this because I was hearing all these great things about this particular mascara. I will admit that I have been using this product frequently. Honestly, I have two different mascaras in my makeup bag right now and I prefer the formula of this one better than my higher end one. This one is a lot softer on the lashes than the other, so I tend to gravitate to this one more. I will admit to not liking how bulky the brush is because I struggle with getting all the lashes covered then. However, that is my only complaint. Overall, would totally get this one again.

Omg. I absolutely love ! And I’m not just saying that. It’s the honest truth !
I never buy department mascara because it always smells weird in my opinion and it’s clunky and just doesn’t give good results. But this. I love this ! I would definitely go out and buy it and use it for my everyday mascara. I love that the brush has two sides to it. And it doesn’t smell weird or get clumpy! It gave me good results and I love the way my eyelashes look !Maybelline Total Temptation MascaraMaybelline Total Temptation Mascara

Always looking for some new drug store mascara to try. For some reason mascara is the only product I never bother buying high-end. I just dont mind as much. I purchased this to wear with my Illegal Lengths, and it's a great combination! Also. I have to add, this mascara has an amazing smell! Usually mascara either smells like chemicals, or they try to hide it with fragrance and it doesn't work. This smells so nice, I was surprised! I give 4 stars because I'm not a huge fan of the wand, but I just use a spoolie to separate my lashes better

I decided to give this mascara a try. I don’t hate it but I would have to put it more in the slightly dramatic but mostly natural mascara category. I myself would prefer Lash Paradise over this mascara. I also would say it does not beat my all time fave Bh cosmetics Fierce Volume Mascara. This mascara is also a little pricey and has a perfume kinda scent in it that I don’t really care for.

I purchased this in CVS because when Maybelline comes out with new mascaras I want to try them and compare them to previous ones they have out. It smells good which is a plus because most mascaras smell weird. It coats your lashes very heavily and it separates them. I suggest what I didn’t do was take off the excess because when I first used it I had mascara on my eyelids and it was mess. But overall it was good product.

I have extremely long lashes as is. I always try and use the very best mascara because I love for my lashes to look amazing. This product is OUTSTANDING! Was a bit skeptical yesterday because I had some issues with it clumping my lashes together but that was my fault for putting it on top of my lashes. My eyes looked amazing all night/day. Made them extremely long and full! Will definitely purchase again.

I literally just purchased this 2 days ago (because I had a coupon) and I'm still feeling it out. First of all I couldn't find the waterproof kind and was convinced it didnt exist. I think this mascara provides weight and volume but doesn't provide much length. I usually layer multiple mascaras ( always using [product:maybelline-volum'-express-the-colossal-washable-mascara]) so that doesnt bother me but I think I prefer [product:maybelline-volum'-express-the-falsies-washable-mascara] over the Total Temptation.

The packaging for this mascara is beautiful. Matte peachy pink. I gave this a go today and although I like to give my honest opinion on mascaras after at least a month, (because trying a new mascara is like breaking in a new pair of shoes, and so messy) I think it’s pretty alright for a drugstore mascara. I’m not big on mascaras yet so I honestly don’t have much of an opinion. It did only last for a few hours though. I recommend scraping off a lot of product before applying, a little goes a long way.

The Maybelline total temptation mascara is awesome, in my opinion it gives my lashes volume and length. for the price you get a very stylish component that looks luxurious in your makeup collection and is super comfortable to apply. I see myself re purchasing this mascara again. I wouldn't say its a holy grail, but it is a really good product to have in your kit, my only tip is not to add more than 2 layers as it will get clumpy.

I'll give this a 4/5 stars.

Packaging is on point.

The mascara itself has a lovely scent. The formula texture is almost like a whipped texture. It's so lightweight.

The first time I tried this mascara, I didn't realize that a little goes a long way and that you shouldn't wait too long to add another coat. Unless you want clumpy lashes. Honestly one swipe is all you need. I do wish the wand was a tiny bit smaller so I could get the lashes near the inner corner.

Overall it's a good product
