This longtime favorite has an oversized wand and superdark formula to give you ultra dramatic lashes. The famously big, bodacious brush coats lashes with the ultra-black formula, creating volume and thickness.

I think this formula has changed --

I've been wearing this mascara on and off since college. Yikes...that's a span of thirteen years now. Anyway, this brush is still fabulous for my lashes , which are mostly long and thick. While I get the shape I want from the formula and brush (it glides on, never ever is it clumpy or goopy), the staying power has significantly diminished. Living in south Florida def tests my products but hands down this mascara can not stand up to humidity.

Should have read more closely not waterproof
Purchased

I did like how my lashes looked initially when applied: thick and very full but after a couple of hours I had raccoon eyes due to the mascara not staying put especially in the hotter months.

It's OK.

I usually love anything from Benefit but I found this mascara to be pretty average. And it dried out quickly which surprised me. I do know many friends who love this mascara though. I just didn't care for it as much. Worth a try though.

The original

This is the original Benefit mascara. It has a huge brush that I loved once I got used to it. It is dramatic and pretty but did tend to smudge on me.

not the mascara for me

I purchased this mascara at a big box store after it was recommended to me by several friends. Unfortunately, this did not give me the bang I was looking for. I wear contacts so my eyes are sometimes watery, and this would smudge this mascara.

Not the best

It goes on very nicely but flakes and smudges badly.

Looks good, but doesn't last.
Purchased

This is a good, natural looking mascara for every day use. However, it does not give me near the volume or drama that I look for in a mascara that could transition from day to night. Also, it tends to flake or smear off by the end of the day so you can't count on it during a long day unless you plan to reapply halfway through the day. I don't hate it, but I probably won't purchase it again.

Not my favorite

Not a bad mascara. It goes on nicely, does not clump up... But it gives little to no volume for those of us who have short lashes. Also, not waterproof.

Good, but flakey!

The formula and wand are great, but this mascara always flakes and leaves dark patches on my lower eyelids! It's very frustrating as it's the only mascara to ever to this on me, and because I do like the nice, natural look it gives my lashes.
