I loveeee this product. Its long lasting and finshing is amazing.I love this top most brand.This  is one of my favorites brands and with reasonable price.I bought this from macys,jcpenney,walmart stores and it is also available in other stores like Fred Meyer,target,walgreens many.......It gives soft texture on skin. I would definitely recommend this product and brand too.Its better to search for offers before buying.Have different shades of color for different skin tones.I like to visit above stores only to buy this and find offers.It gives fantastic look for party and for simple makeup also.I am kinda shopholic ;) so love to buy and try different products ,brands and shades.It would be too nice if there are some small samples to try before we buy.Shade is just awesome on my skin and hope for others too.It has smooth  texture.I would definitely buy More n more n more...I love trying new products and samples tooooooo.Its bestiest best product I have ever used...

Out of all the waterproof mascaras, I have tried, this one is by far the best. I'm a swimmer and I've been looking for a good waterproof mascara that doesn't run and actually works. This one is my all time favorite and I never have raccoon eyes anymore when I get out of the pool. It applies nice and smooth and helps me get every single lash nice and coated and separated. My eyelashes are also very stick straight and never hold on their own with regular mascara. For all the people who have straight lashes, this mascara is totally gonna change that, and it actually holds the curl all day. This is definitely the perfect mascara for me, and also anybody else thats a swimmer.

just received this product today and I was so pleasantly surprised! While I usually prefer the feel of it I always go for because of longevity. After giving this bad boy a run through, I feel like this is the best of both worlds! Great longevity in a super comfortable, soft formula. I was super happy with. I love this, and while this may not have been one I picked up on my own, I already know it will be a daily staple for me. Instant love! *I received this product complimentary for review purposes, the opinions, however, are 100% my own.

This is amazing mascara! I’ve used it for years. It holds throughout the day, even through sweating and working out. I have an issue with mascara smudging and this one holds. It is a little hard to wash off with just regular cleanser, so extra steps have to be taken when removing makeup. It volumizes without clumping. This gets even better after it dries a little, rather than when you first open it. It holds curls very well and just doesn’t move. I definitely recommend this product.

I really love this mascara. I use it daily when I want a mascara that’s not going to run or bleed onto my lower lash line or come off throughout the day. It makes my lashes look amazing and full with a lot of volume. I love the wand that comes with this also. It’s very black and isn’t too dry or to liquidy. It does come off pretty easily with my Micellar water that’s for waterproof makeup. I definitely recommend this to anyone that wants a good waterproof mascara from the drugstore.

About me: I like mascaras that dont flake, that provide a lot of volume, separates and defines my lashes, holds a curl all day, and very very black. My lashes are about average in fullness and very straight, borderline curl-resistant. I usually prefer a dry mascara formulation to keep my lashes from being weighed down.

About this mascara: It doesn't flake off, it provides moderate volume, separates and defines lashes well, holds a curl moderately well, and is quite black (but not the blackest). I don't feel this adds a ton of length to my lashes, but that isn't a value to me. I re-apply this mascara halfway into my day to maintain the volume and color of my intial application. I find recurling my lashes after I apply my first coat ensures my curl is held all day. I find this product removes well with coconut oil or any oil based makeup remover.

This is perfect for an everyday casual makeup look, but perhaps not best suited for an evening/glam look. For additional drama, I recommend adding a coat of Maybelline's The Falsies (waterproof formula).


Pros: doesn't flake, itsn't clumpy, seperates and defines lashes, holds curl fairly well, pretty black.
Cons: not incredibly black and isn't buildable enough to take your look full glam.

Review for: Very Black more...
I just recently purchased this product based on some YouTube reviews that I saw. I normally don’t use waterproof mascara, but I saw reviews stating this waterproof mascara was very good for holding a curl after using an eyelash curler so I wanted to try it out on my super straight eye lashes. For me, I was actually surprised that it did hold a curl pretty well! I had to work quickly with the product because as it dried up on my lashes it started to become clumpy as I was applying a second coat. The brush on the wand is also not my favorite, it’s a little large which makes precision application a little bit harder. And lastly, waterproof mascara is a bit harder to remove from the lashes which is a given, but part of the reason I would give the 3 stars to this product. I probably will not repurchase but will keep trying to play with the one I have.

I use this mascara RELIGIOUSLY. I have very small, very straight, Asian eyelashes that cannot keep a curl to save their life. When I curl my lashes and apply this bad baby, they keep their curl throughout the whole day! The tube also lasts a pretty long time if you don't pack on the mascara too heavy. Taking it off is easy with just a little bit of baby oil. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a mascara to keep your lashes curled.

I love this mascara so much it’s one of my favorite mascara as it is a good value for the price it’s pretty cheap but like I’m surprised there’s not much room for improvement because I think it’s so good and I would definitely buy it again because I’m running out it’s my mascara I use daily I got it at CVS or Walgreens but you can get it most drug stores definitely five out of 510 out of 10 would recommend

I like this mascara a lot, mostly because it is waterproof and I go swimming quite a lot and forget that I have mascara on. It gives your eyelashes a lot of volume and length, the only thing I don’t like about this is that, when taking it off it tends to leave redness around my eyes, but that is just me personally, so it might not have the same effect on you. But overall I recommend this for someone who likes a lot of not only length and volume but who likes it waterproof.

Someone said is not clumpy but doesn't that depend on how much you apply? i feel like all mascaras end up clumpy at one point or another..
