I love trying new mascaras and try as many as I can afford to try. This did not have very good color payoff - didn't seem quite black enough, even though it was the darkest available. It did lengthen pretty well, but seemed to flake more than I'd like. It was a bit difficult to remove.

I am a mascara addict. Although I am on a budget and refuse to spend money on a high end mascara that will only last me a month, so I'm always on the look out for a new mascara. This mascara had good packaging and I had heard good things about it so I picked it up. NOT WORTH THE MONEY. Although the mascara made my lashes nice and long, the color payoff of the blackest color they sold wasn't very black at all. Not to mention my eyes were slightly itchy the whole day (I do not have sensitive eyes and I do not wear glasses/contacts) The worst part was when I went to take it off that night.. nearly impossible! I went in with my regular eye-makeup remover and it wouldn't come off, just a few flakes on my cotton ball. So I thought maybe my water-proof makeup remover would work.. I had to scrub my eyes for a while to get it off. And even then it had mascara left over. I was very displeased with this product even though I am an avid lover of Maybelline. I would think twice before purchasing this product.

So I really love this mascara because it makes my lashes really long and noticeable, unfortunately I can't wear it because by the end of the day my eyes get so irritated that they are watery, red, and I can't see. I thought it was just me but I lent it to a friend and she said the same thing happened to her. Maybe I just got a faulty bottle because the other reviews don't mention irritation. I would definitely recommend it if it weren't for that.

This is a very natural mascara, the formulation is pretty good, not to dry, not too wet, and it's definitely not irritating on the eyes.
It gives the lashes more of a lift than your average mascara, however I would still reccommend that you use an eyelash curler.
It's not a clumpy mascara, and it makes the lashes look very feathery and natural as long as you don't wait between the 1st step and the 2nd step.
It's a very average mascara, if all you're looking for is a bit of volume, a small amount of length, and seperation and definition, and a natural mascara then this is the one for you.

This is a 2 sided mascara with step 1 and step 2. Step 1 is a white substance and I find that it becomes more difficult to apply the step 2 black mascara to be able to cover all of the white. Lately i've been only using the step 2 and I find it works great. My lashes definatley look longer. Its a little harder then other mascara's to get off. Overall i'm pleased wth the item.

Pretty good mascara. Doesn't dry out too fast. I did find that the "step 2" of the mascara (the black) is not as effective as a regular black mascara IF used without "step 1" (the white part). But if used as directed, it is a nice mascara. Makes lashes longer.

This was not that great for my lashes. My lashes are medium-length eyelashes, straight...Asian eyelashes, lol. Anyway, it didn't curl that much, the wand was short and it was hard to apply it to my lashes. The curved brush was awkward too and I think the primer and mascara was heavy on my eyelashes. I don't recommend it for my eyelashes, but it might work well for longer eyelashes.

Love this mascara...even without curling my lashes it makes them thick and curly...beautiful big lashes.

The only thing is that it gave me raccoon eyes - it may be because my bottom lashes are really long, but i doubt that. I have to keep wiping underneath my eyes to make sure there's no black smudges. It acutually gets quite annoying to keep having friends say " wipe under your eyes".....But if u don't mind that, then this mascara pumps out huge curly lashes
