  • "After repurchasing this product six times, it still hasn't gotten old. This is my go to mascara and I use it as a base to keep my lashes curled and volumized. Even with my short lashes, this mascara ACTUALLY keeps my lashes curled! I've tried the Tarte Lights Camera Action, Estee Lauder Sumptous, and Too Faced Better than Sx mascaras, which still made my lashes go back to its straight and boring self. But when I use this mascara under other volumizing masacaras, it keeps my lashes curled throughout the entire day! I probably will never stop repurchasing it (:" in 144 reviews
  • "The product definitely adds volume as it advertises, comparable to some of the more upscale mascara that costs 3X more. As for waterproof I would give it a 9 out of 10. when moisture and temperature is high, the mascara does tend to run, not too bad though." in 103 reviews
  • "Oh my goodness holy grail mascara right here! honestly love this mascara soo much because it does the job to give my lashes lotsss of volume while lengthening it and it just lasts all day and it's just the perfect mascara and I highly recommend it..I've been using this same mascara for years now and always go back to it when I can!:)" in 28 reviews
  • "This is the best mascara I have ever used. It never clumps and lasts a long time. I use it nearly everyday. I've tried other mega volume mascara but it doesn't compare to this and it lasts all day! I do recommend it for anyone looking for some new mascara." in 25 reviews

I have been using this product for probably 10 years.  It is definitely waterproof! I have cried, been stuck in the rain, gone swimming and taken showers with this mascara on, and it stays on probably 90%!  If your eyelashes are sensitive or brittle, it may not be for you because it can be hard to remove sometimes.  My eyelashes don't tend to fall/pull out easily, so it isn't a problem for me.  I have tried so many mascaras over the years, and I always go back to this one.  

It gives great volume (I do not have thick or dark eyelashes), and it doesn't clump too bad. When I apply, I scrape the brush against the side of the bottle a little bit as I am pulling the wand out. That helps to get any excess clumping off of the wand before I apply.

I received this in the mail as a sample and I had never tried it before. I was pleasantly surprised though. It covers more of my lashes than any mascara I've tried thus far. It is not clumpy though and gives me a little length and volume at the same time. Although my lashes do get a little crunchy (I haven't found one that doesn't do that, yet) I still love it for everything it does do right. I will be buying more when my sample runs out.

I hated this mascara. It does not apply well at all. It makes my lashes feel almost rubbery, and not in a good way. It is almost impossible to get off, even using remover, and it took some of my real lashes with it. When first applied, they made my lashes look really clumpy. Then after being in the water, I didn't think it was possible, but my lashes were even clumpier. I won't be buying this again.

This is maximum volume mascara. Volume as in the width of your eyelash, not the length of them. This mascara will fill out your eyelashes if you feel you're a little sparse. It is super long lasting. So much so, it's pretty difficult to get the stuff off. I have to use an oil based make up remover to peel all the gunk off at the end of the day.

Love these ! I use Maybelline waterproof mascara on all my clients as well as myself. It keeps curled lashes in place for days and does not flake! I like the new one in the gold tube better, because that one looks like falsies, BUT this one is my second and is great at lengthening, volumizing, and defining.

Besides having a waterproof and it being hard to take off with some of the makeup remover. This is a great product for a simple look. Nothing too dramatic just a little length to your lashes. When it drys it does, become a little clumpy. But just for a simple girls day out it is a good product.

I love the darkness and volume that this mascara gives. It was actually one of the first ones that I tried years ago from maybelline. I still use it till today on certain occasions. It’s a great mascara because you can use it on its own and you can control the brush pretty well. It’s great for beginners too because the wand is thick and it doesn’t allow the mascara to clump up too much. Just be careful of that when using it!

I have used this mascara since I was in high school. I absolutely love this mascara! The brush is perfect and it gives me a perfect volume and length. People have asked me if my lashes are fake. I was in a wedding in September and even the make up artist was using colossal mascara!

I love this product. The pigmentation is exquisite! I love the volume and extension it gives to my lashes. I would highly recommend this product. It lasts for a very long time surprisingly. It’s a bit costly but it’s worth it. I would buy this before a high end product any day.
