  • "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

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.

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 BEAUTY Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara, but only ALMOST.

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.

The Maybelline Total Temptation™ Washable 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™ Washable 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.

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.

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.

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.

Okay so you are here for the good bad and the ugly right? This new mascara smells so amazing I know that sounds weird but when I first opened it that was what I noticed and had to stop and figure out what I was smelling. That aside it has a decent mascara wand with a great brush that does a wonderful job of separating the lashes and applying the product. It didn't give me the volume I was looking for when applying but it did an amazing job of staying curled all day and didnt flake or smudge on my eyes at all, at the end of the day it was fairly easy to remove. I will use this mascara again and would recommend it to someone who wants a more natural look or maybe my daughter.

Let me be honest. I read through a ton of reviews because I am so picky when it comes to mascara. I already have natural length, but my lashes are light and very thin. I love to have a bold lash look and I really don’t mind a little clump. I love my mascara stiff too! Soft and fluffy isn’t my style. I was VERY skeptical trying this and boy I’m thrilled that I was wrong! I’ve loved this mascara! I’m not sure I smell the scent like everyone has said, but everything else I love about this mascara! No fall out, lasted all day, stayed true to its color, showed off my length, and quick! My lashes are done in a few minutes! I have loved this and will continue to purchase it!
