This mascara really makes your lashes look much longer and fuller. So if that's the look you're going for, this will do the trick. However, sometimes the lashes appear fake or dirty. Another con to this product is that it is so aggravating to remove. Sure, you can use makeup removal products, or a soft tissue / cotton ball, but it's a hassle. I'd rather stick to another brand at this point. If you're going on a first date or nice event, and looking to make a great impression, this is a great mascara. I don't recommend it for everyday, casual use, though.

This is the only mascara I use. I have tried high end department store brands & I always go back to this one. I have very sensitive eyes & this is the only one that doesn't irritate them. It is very thick so I swipe off some of it on a tissue then apply it. I love the brush design it really helps get all of my lashes. If I do get in a hurry & get it on my skin I just let it dry & remove with a q-tip it comes right off. I also love that it's carbon black like the blackest black it really makes your eyes pop.

I absolutely love the brush that comes with this mascara, I tend to be a fan of the typical spoolie-type bristles rather than the rubber ones that many come with now. The size of the brush in combination with the wet formula really separate and lengthen my lashes. The packaging is great, too. It does look very retro. My only complaint would be that since the formula is very wet, it takes a while to dry and I often get that awful transfer onto my lids when I open my eyes. Other than that, great mascara!

This is by far my FAVORITE drugstore mascara, and may even rival some high end brands. I use it daily, and have recommended it to all of my friends. If you're looking for a rich, black coverage and volume, this is the one to go for! It can come out a bit clumpy, as if does give you the "retro glam" look it advertises, but it's easy enough to swipe the brush on the edge of the bottle to make sure you get a lighter coating. It gives my lashes a full, fanned out appearance with a nice curl!

Personally I don't think this is an "amazing" or "great" mascara. I bought it during an emergency and it continues to be an emergency mascara for me.

I'm an Asian and have shorter, sparse eyelashes so I like to buy mascaras that give me instant length and volume. I like to apply multiple coats of mascara to get the look I want and this mascara doesn't give me the ability to do that.

It takes forever to dry in between coats and doesn't really do much for length. I wouldn't buy it again.

I received this mascara from a VoxBox, and I was super excited. I adore my lashes, so when I saw this, I was geeked out! After wearing it for a while, I did notice that it made my lashes look thinner and more spidery. I did enjoy it how ever, it gives the lash a more natural look, which in the 80's (which is what this mascara is based off of) was the look you wanted. It does smear and smudge on me, so if I see this on a waterproof formula, you know I am going to give it a shot!!!

Initially, this mascara seems great! It's super black, lengthens my short little asian lashes, holds curl, and volumizes. However, after only an hour and a half in the heat, I looked in the mirror and to my utter surprise I had black smudges surrounding the bottom of my eye, right where the lower lashline is. It is so unsightly and I wasn't even home so I had to use water and a napkin to try and get the smudges off!!! Horrible staying power!!

Do you want your eyelashes looking clumped and all smudging? Do you like the look of only having a few eyelashes ? Do you like the feeling of heavy goop on your eyelashes ? Than this is the mascara for you! In just one coat it leaves your eyelashes looking clumped and luscious as ever! And once you out on a second coast it weighs down your eyelashes so they aren't curled and beautiful anymore! This mascara is the perfect London look!

Loooove this mascara. I bought it on a whim with a coupon and it's so good! I had been using a Too Faced mascara for a while, but my tube was getting old and clumpy so I was looking for a good drugstore dupe/alternative. This is actually really nice! It layers up nicely and only clumps the tiniest bit (not enough to really make a difference).
Worth the price and it's really affordable!

This is my 2nd go to for mascara. I normal use the scandal eyes XX-treme. It works great, doesn't clump up on me and get into the corners of my eyes. It lasts all day or night (about 5 to 6 hrs). The cost of this mascara is priced right. I don't wear makeup much, but this has lasted all day wear over some of the very costly brands. I recommend it to anyone and if your on a budget too.

Is it just me, or does this seem to clump up horribly? It is odd, but on one eye it seems to do GREAT and then I go to apply it to the next and I have to almost literally pull my lashes apart.
