Okay but not great

Luckily I bought the travel size of this because I was not impressed with it. It made my lashes clump together even after using a lash comb right before putting it on. For the price, I think that there are a lot better options out there.

Initially great, then smudges

The brush on this mascara is great- it's huge actually, and does a good job of coating all your lashes. HOWEVER, just like another reviewer, by midday I had a black smudge under my eye. I even tried only putting the mascara on the top lid, but there was still a smudge! Dealbreaker.

Not my fav

I've heard some good things about this mascara and I was looking forward to trying it, but unfortunately, it does not live up to the hype for my lashes. It did not my curl at all, so I will not be using this again.

Unsure if this is not waterproof?

I received this a free sample for $25 promo. I was surprised that the sample came with a LARGE brushes that it was kinda difficult to apply. The color is intense which is a big plus. After a day walking at warm weather, I'm not sure if its the mascara or BB cream not being water resistant/proof; it speared and gave me black eyes. I'll save it for non-sweating walks.

Why is this product so popular?

I will never understand why people like this product. I have used products with far better effectiveness. Without fail, this product always leaves my eyelashes clumpy. I would not recommend the purchase of this product. There are far greater mascaras that won't leave you looking like it was your first experience with mascara...

Wand is too big

Perhaps it's the shape of my eyelashes/ eyes, but I was never able to apply this mascara without brushing the wand against my eyelids (upper and lower) and/or browbone. The wand and applicator is just massive and makes it nearly impossible to apply precisely.

Smudgey and flakey!
Purchased

This mascara is unfortunately not my favorite. I love Benefit products so I bought this wanting to try one of their mascaras. The consistency is fine, and the color is a rich black, but this stuff smudges like crazy! I had raccoon eyes within an hour of putting it on. This also started to flake towards the end of the day and pretty much came off so that I had to re-apply before I went out later that night, as well as correct the smudging. Overall, sadly not a good mascara from an overall fabulous brand.

not great
Purchased

This product is really not that great. To get the volume I wanted from my mascara, it looked clumpy because I needed to put so much on. It did however length my lashes AFTER i put my drug store brand mascara on as a base, but would have been sufficient without applying this on top.

This

I honestly love the CoverGirl macaras more than this. The brush is huge and I feel bad for girls with naturally short eyelashes that want to try this. If you are looking for a higher end mascara than a drugstore one then go check of Tarte's Lights Camera Lashes
