  • "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

Because of the ingredients being more gentle, I have less eyelashes falling out when its time to wash my makeup off. The added oils seem to nourish them and also, I have never had a mascara that doesn't have that strong chemical smell. This is my favorite for natural longer lashes. Only reason that it is not a 5 is because the product dries out quick inside the packaging.

I got Maybelline Total Temptation™ Washable Mascara on one of my Target runs, and I thought “might as well try it and see” because I’ve been on a hunt for a great new drugstore mascara . I tried it immediately when I got home on top of L'Oréal Paris Voluminous® Carbon Black Mascara that I had on all day. I was really surprised that it glided on smoothly over the dry mascara I’ve been wearing and didn’t clump up, or look messy. It actually enhanced my lashes and as advertised the “fluffy brush glides through lashes for non-stop buildability”. I like the formula, thus far, and have no trouble with it transferring onto my bottom lashes or my eyelids. I love its easy buildable formula, and it’s almost like Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara, but only ALMOST.

This mascara did nothing for my lashes. It didn’t add much volume and was clumpy. I found that it flaked after a couple hours. Maybelline and so many other brands have fantastic mascaras in this price range so to anyone thinking of buying this I would suggest going with Maybelline Lash sensational, covergirl lash blast volume or L’Oréal lash paradise over this one.

I usually take a few days using something before I want to review it, so I did really give this product a chance.

This Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara is really average to me at best. I love the cute packaging of the mascara and the low price, but it is not a product I would purchase again in the future.  It's not a bad mascara for everyday use at all! However, it didn't really give my lashes much volume or length. I was hoping for some more length, but it really didn't too much to my lashes that was noticeable. Nothing out of the ordinary, really. The mascara applied very softly and it didn't do the best job at separate my lashes too well. Again, this is not a bad mascara, it just did not fit my preferences of what I was hoping for.

On another note If you have sensitive eyes, I would recommend being careful - this was very irritating for my eyes after trying it out a few times.

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.

I really like this mascara. It's one of my favorites from Maybelline, but I will not repurchase it because it transfers to my brow bone throughout the day. It separates, lengthens, and volumizes my lashes and makes this look really beautiful. It's gentle formula makes it easy to remove without pulling out any lashes. Because it's made with coconut oil however it makes the formula transfer easily. 
Maybe the waterproof formula would help with this but I don't like waterproof mascaras. Overall, I recommend it if your lashes don't touch your brow bones like mine do.

Review for: Very Black more...
I bought this product after a beauty influencer recommendation, but was disappointed. While I love other Maybelline mascaras, this one didn't work very well for me. I didn't feel as though it really separated, lengthened or curled my lashes. Instead, it applied a very small amount of product and clumped my lashes together more than anything. I was able to make it work by combining it with a second mascara, but I wouldn't recommend buying this as a stand alone product if you're looking for really defined lashes. If that's what you're looking for, there are so many good drugstore mascaras on the market and I think you can do a lot better than this one for a similar price.

Review for: Blackest Black more...
I bought this mascara last week on a trip to Chicago for around $5 because I’d forgotten my usual mascara at home. When I did end up getting home, I ended up putting my $30-some mascara in the drawer because I like this one THAT much better. I only have to use 1 or 2 coats to make my lashes look the way I want them to rather than 3-4 coats of other mascara, and the wand is easy to grip. The only downside of this product is the fact that it’s not the waterproof version, but for $5 I’ll take what I can get and be happy that it works so well.

I don’t know if I got an old bottle or something when I bought it, but this was not a good mascara. It was really dry and barely applied to my lashes. It flaked on me and didn’t even last half the day. My eyes lashes have seen better days

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™ Washable Mascara is definitely my new go to!
