  • "LOVE!!!! Great volume all day!!! And super cheap! Love that it comes in regular and water proof! Comes in black and brownish black, which is great to have options, I wear this everyday over my high end mascaras because it’s so wonderful" in 18 reviews
  • "I decided to see what all the buzz was about this past week when I needed new mascara. One coat and I was in love. It's light weight, covers all of my lashes, and smells nice. I was weary of the scent because my eyes are sensitive, but it really did not cause itching or irritation. Two coats adds volume, but I love the natural look this mascara offers.  [product:maybelline-total-temptation-mascara] " in 8 reviews
  • "I love this mascara! It’s one of my new favorites! It’s long lasting and gives me so much volume which is a all time plus for me cause I lack on volume and this mascara def does the trick! The price is great and works better than a lot of high priced mascaras I’ve used! Love it and will use again! " in 3 reviews

Honest Review | I’ve been using @maybelline #totaltemptation waterproof mascara for a few weeks now and below are my final thoughts -
•This formula is very dense and leaves lashes feeling heavy.
•Can leave lashes clumpy so I found myself scraping off a lot of product to apply sparingly.
•This is a waterproof formula but I noticed that after an hour or two it would spread to my under-eyes. I ended up having to carry make up wipes to remove my under eye makeup and redo, I hated this!
•The brush helps create a lot volume
•I like the simple packaging with its light blue color and thin container
•As much as I wanted to like this, I won’t be buying again because it’s supposed to be waterproof but it continually transferred to my under eye area and I did not like how dense and clumpy it made my lashes look without scraping off the excess. Did anyone have a different experience with the regular formula???

I bought the waterproof Maybelline Total Temptation mascara, because I needed a waterproof mascara for an emotional day that's just passed. I usually use Maybelline Lash Sensational, but I had heard about this new mascara and thought this was a good opportunity to try it out. I was disappointed. I had to do 3 or 4 coats because it wasn't showing up the way I like my mascara. I eventually topped it with a coat of Lash Sensational. When it was time to try and wash it off, a simple makeup wipe got about 95% of all the mascara off. While in the shower, the rest of the mascara was washed away. So, it doesn't appear to be a great Waterproof mascara. I did like the packaging, and the brush applicator, but I'll stick to the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara instead.

I just recently purchased this mascara and so far I love everything about it. I love how dark it is, it lengthens, adds volume and isn't clumpy. I struggle with making my lashes appear visible and this is perfect. It doesn't weigh them down or flake. It's gentle enough that it doesn't bother my contacts which is an added bonus. The packaging is great. The flat side of the wand handle is fabulous, it gives you amazing comfort and control. This by far exceeds my more expensive mascaras. If you're looking for a new waterproof mascara I definitely suggest this one, it being affordable is also a plus.

Review for: Brownish Black more...
I have medium length lashes that are super straight and resistant to a curl, so they typically aren’t even visible. I got the SURRATT Relevée Lash Curler in the last Sephora sale and it curls my lashes amazingly! The problem is that none of my mascaras hold the curl and I end up with invisible lashes again 20 mins later. I tried the Lancôme Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara and loved it! It holds the curl perfectly, but I didn’t like that it isn’t available in blackened brown and it is sooooo hard to get off. I was told that this mascara is a good dupe for it and I figured at the drugstore price point it was worth a shot. I do really like this mascara also and find that it is very similar to Lancôme’s, but it isn’t quite as good at holding the curl and is slightly easier to get off. I really like the packaging and how easy to hold and use the wand is. It doesn’t make my lashes clumpy or anything, which I hate so I typically go for lengthening / defining formulas, but I found this to be defining and volumizing at once. Overall, I’d recommend trying it out because it’s a really solid formula that doesn’t budge or flake during the day and holds a curl pretty well

I love trying new mascaras and usually do some research before going to buy but, didn't have the time. I saw this was new and bought it on a whim after a quick search online since it had good enough reviews. I don't think this is the best mascara I've used but, I also love lash formulas that are on the drier side. This is a wetter formula than I would prefer so it takes a little longer to dry. Also, this mascara has a smell which kind of throws me off but, isn't a terrible smell.

This mascara makes my lashes look so amazing! The formula doesn’t clump on my lashes like many other mascaras I have tried. This mascara is waterproof to an extent, what I mean by that is if I submerge my face in water it doesn’t Budge but it I go swimming it runs a little bit. However even a waterproof product isn’t perfect otherwise it would be super difficult to remove. But this product is my go to during summer.

I’m not a big fan of this mascara. I bought it because I wanted a waterproof mascara for the summer time, but this mascara in particular didn’t give me the same look I would expect a mascara to give. It didn’t really curl my eyelashes like my favorite mascaras do, and it was clumpy. I’ve also noticed how after a while it started to smudge which a water proof mascara shouldn’t do.

I found this Mabelline total temptation kinda by accident, i went to get a different mascara and saw this, and man oh man I'm totally in love with it! It goes on my eyelashes so good and i can use a couple of applications and get the full blown glam look it i can just do one application and get just a subtle look! I absolutely love this mascara and best of all its cheap!! Love it! Maybelline Total Temptation™ Waterproof Mascara

I'm really torn in between a three and four star review for this mascara. I like the color, and the volume that I get from it. It is also at a great price point. My problem is that for a waterproof mascara, it sure is flaky. I keep getting little black specks on my contact lenses that cause irritation. I've had this happen with other mascaras (even other Maybelline mascaras), but never to this degree, and never to this discomfort. The flaking starts about 3-4 hours into wear. I'll probably finish up this tube just so I don't feel like I wasted my money (and I'll probably only use it on days where I'm wearing my contacts because I don't want these flakes on my bare eyes), but I'll be going back to another mascara when I'm done.

This mascara is very good. It last a long time. I rated this product a 4 cause it isn't really waterproof. It is coming of sometimes too. It is kind off annoying. I bought this product at a dollar general. I would recommend to a person who doesn't care about always messing with their mascara and eye lashes.
