Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara by ISEHAN

"I've tried a lot of mascaras in my time and this is my favourite. If they ever stop making it I'll be lost! I'll try to keep this short: > Brush shape is curved at the end, narrow width. Helps fan out & separate, pushes up lashes from underneath when applying - means curl doesn't get pulled down and flattened and instead keeps the curl in place once dry. > Narrow width of brush means corners and lower lashes are easy to apply to > Micro-fibre formula - lengthens quite dramatically > Does not clump or remain sticky > Remains soft, feathery and full even as more coats are added > Does not irritate my contact lenses once dry, can use eye drops and it won't dissolve > Practically bulletproof once dry - no smudging, no loss of curl angle/height, no flaking, no panda eyes unless you rub your eyes or similar >not affected by rain or crying, eye drops etc >looks as good at the end of a hectic 13 hour on-call shift at the hospital as it does at the start. Seriously, it does not budge! >comes off easily with cotton pads and a cheap biphasic eye makeup remover i.e. the ones with an oily layer on top of an aqueous one. You don't need the brand's own remover. >good price point - average £10-15 per tube with shipping, while it outperforms £25 diorshow and all the Benefit mascaras I've tried A bsolutely the best mascara I have ever used! « less" - ebay.com user

Volume Effet Faux Cils Flash Lash Primer by YSL Beauty

"I am a big fan of YSL lipsticks so I thought of buying their mascara with expectation of similar standard of quality. The product arrived on time and I was fascinated with its beautiful packaging. I have really long eyelashes but they are not dense .The brush is fuller enough to give complete coverage on my long eyelashes. It also made them look bigger .Mascara was spreading evenly and there was no smudging or clumping. My eyelashes looked voluminous and more curled .It stayed all day long and did come off very easily when I washed my face before going to bed . It didn’t break my eyelashes. Usually I always see my eyelashes strands breaking when I am taking off my mascara but this wasn’t the case here. I don’t like using eyelash curler , I am lazy that ways , but with this brush I could see I didn’t need the curler and it was one brush doing work of mascara brush and curler brush too. My eyelashes looked more beautiful with this mascara . Will definitely recommend it . One of my colleague used it as she forgot her Mascara at home , today she told me that she will buy it as she loved it. her comments was that it separated her eyelashes and made them look bigger and volumised. Another happy user :) « less" - yslbeauty.co.uk user

The Makeup Nourishing Mascara Base by Shiseido

"This mascara base was what I have been looking for and it has been right in front of me this whole time! I've always used the Shiseido eyelash curler, which is a must, if like me you have long but very straight eyelashes, that normally only stay curled with certain waterproof mascaras. This base holds the curl after curling, and then I finish it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. This mascara is probably a little heavier than most want when looking for the curl, but with the primer underneath I get that very natural feather look! I've even been asked if my lashes are fake! It doesn't allow for a really clumpy finish either, it is very defined. Also, it looks really good once dried if you want just the natural look of no mascara because it does not have the white finish normal primers do. I recommend this to anyone who wants something to help with the curl. « less" - Sephora user

Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara by Estée Lauder

"First let me say that I am extremely hard to please when it comes to beauty products, and mascara is one that i am especially picky on. I have fine lashes of nice length, and most "volumizing" formulas (such as any dior mascara) make my lashes look like a clumpy, goopy mess. Super wet, sticky, goopy formulas don't work for me, and neither do brushes where the bristles are too close together (they don't get between my lashes and kind of brush the mascara off at the same time as they put it on so it never builds up).This mascara is the best one I have probably ever used. It lifts my lashes so I don't need to curl them, it thickens them dramatically (and I mean super dramatic where everyone will be fixated on your eyes) and it doesn't clump or goop up or anything. You can just put on 2 coats like normal if you want to just look great in a daytime situation, or you can let it dry a little between as many coats as you want and build the drama to traffic stopping status. If you want to have the same impact as fake lashes without actually using them, this is a great mascara. I'm surprised it isn't more popular- but that's ok, I like having the best eyelashes in any situation. :-) « less" - Nordstrom user

Le Volume De Chanel Mascara by Chanel

"I happen to live far from major retail, so today went to replace my Chanel le Volume after I dropped the brush on the bathroom floor. Sadly, local store no longer has in stock.I bought diorshow blackout and even after checking he box, did not realize it's waterproof until after I tried it. And hated it. And reading review here made me think, wow, everyone had different needs and wants. So let me describe myself before reviewing. I have long, thick eyelashes. (Thanks, genetics!) I want a mascara that highlights them, defines them and stays put until I wash it off with water. No, I am not fooling with super makeup remover. And because they're already pretty thick and long (if faded and/or grey) I absolutely don't want WEIGHT!I used to love Armani E2K Excess. Then I tried this one. Two coats (nice brush strokes, not super wiggling it in) covered all the lashes with no clumping, high volume, superior definition and length. It has virtually no weight, stays put without flaking, and washes off with soap and water. Completely.I love this mascara.Secondly, I have green/blue/teal eyes. The purple shade, which looks far lighter on the brush than on your eyes -- on it looks black on medium skin -- makes greenish eyes pop.I have both the black and purple. I will get both again.The Diorshow is sealed tightly for my next beach vacation! Less" - Nordstrom user

Sumptuous Knockout Defining Lift And Fan Mascara by Estée Lauder

"I have tried every mascara sold at Nordstrom and I keep coming back to Estee Lauder's 'Sumptous Knockout' Defining Lift and Fan mascara. This mascara does exactly what its name states. Just by curling my lashes and few strokes from the root to the end my lashes are long, full and defined. I love that this mascara is very buildable, you can use for a natural day time look and you can add a couple more strokes of the wand for a night out on the town. The best part of it all: No Clumping! The wand allows for every inch of your lashes to be brushed out and covered with just the right amount of mascara. This mascara will become a staple in your make-up bag! " - Nordstrom user

At Lash’d Lengthening and Curling Mascara by Marc Jacobs Beauty

"When I received this product and opened the box, my first reaction was “wow, the packaging is out of this world”, followed by “it will probably be another average mascara with beautiful packaging to justify the price”. I am very picky about my mascaras: I have hooded eyes and my eyelids can get oily (and sweaty in the summer) so mascaras tend to transfer and smudge on me. After reading the claims of this mascara, I was intrigued and started playing around with it… and now I cannot put it down. This stuff is INCREDIBLE. First, the wand bristles are super soft and coats my lashes with the perfect amount of mascara. Second, the formula is just wet enough that it doesn’t clump together but still builds beautifully on itself. Third, it is long wearing , does not smudge at all, and one coat is all it takes to give me my dream lashes: Curled, defined, fluffy, voluminous, lengthened. I’ve been getting compliments from everyone who has seen me wearing this. This has quickly become my NUMBER ONE favorite mascara: I 100% recommend it and will be purchasing another one when I run out." - sephora user

Lash Sensational Washable Mascara by Maybelline

"This is my new go-to mascara. I actually tried this mascara for two weeks alongside another brand to see how it would hold up over time. Hands down, this is the winner. I have very straight, hard to curl lashes. An eyelash curler is a must in my morning routine. If a mascara is too wet, it will immediately pull the curl right out of my lashes. If it's too dry, my lashes become brittle. This is the perfect combination. The formula is wet without being too wet and the waterproof formula holds the curl from 7AM until 1AM. Even through tears! Just a side note: Only waterproof mascaras will hold eyelash curl. Usually I wear false eyelashes to get the glamour girl effect. At least I used to. With this mascara, I can actually get away with three coats, and no signs of clumping. One coat is sufficient, two coats make your eyes pop, three coats are glamorous. Since this is a waterproof mascara, you MUST use a waterproof mascara remover. I use Smashbox It's A Wrap to remove it with no problems. In a pinch, I've used baby oil, but it requires more effort and I find my lashes won't curl as easily the next day with the baby oil. I can't stress enough how well this mascara holds the curl. I even went through a family emergency with this mascara and had to laugh the following morning when it was still intact after countless tears all night long. This is a buildable mascara, meaning the more coats, the longer and thicker your lashes become. My lashes are sparse and after two coats, my eyes look amazing. The other thing I love about this mascara is the particular color I'm using (very black) is matte. I detest shiny mascara (I believe the black pearl color has more of a gloss). Keep in mind, because this is a waterproof mascara, it does tend to be a little more stiff than the washable mascara. This is precisely why waterproof mascaras hold the curl and washables don't. It's stiff without being too much so. There are no crunchy lashes here. Here's a tip: When applying this mascara, once you have the first coat on, rotate the brush to the back side and use those longer bristles to separate and define your lashes further." - ulta user

Heroine Make Long Curl Mascara 01 Pure Black by ISEHAN

"This mascara lives up to its hype - completely waterproof, including how incredibly hard it is to remove. Still, I love this enough to deal with that. Tidbit about me - I'm Asian, with short straight lashes. Yes, I use an eyelash curler and that provides a temporary lift, but none of the Western mascaras I've used holds the curl like this one. This mascara defines my lashes, makes them appear longer, and stays curled until I am ready to remove my makeup. How waterproof is it? If you get some on your lids when applying, you better get to it or it is there to stay. I've worn this to weddings. I've been in the rain with this on. I've cried in this (dramas included). Water parks, swimming, the list goes on. You know how you would wipe your lashes after crying or getting wet, and you come away with black streaks? This doesn't do any of that!! Staying power? I'm guilty of being lazy some nights and sleeping with my makeup on (not advocating for this), but wow, my lashes still looked incredible the morning after. FYI this mascara does not budge after using my foam cleanser. I had better luck with oil cleansers but still had to go in with cotton swabs afterwards. What worked for me was a biphasic eye makeup remover before cleansing. Be gentle to your lashes and give the remover some time to work its magic. Less" - yesstyle.com user

Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara by ISEHAN

"i have used the kiss me heroine make mascara (the one in the maroon tube) and have only been able to get it in asia. it is my FAVOURITE mascara that exists (both volume and length ones) it is so volumising and lengthening and it keeps your eyelashes curled for so long as it is so waterproof it like freezes your eyelashes. i was hoping this one would be very similar however i was a bit disappointed. it is a good mascara however it just isnt as good as the kiss me one. it is just as waterproof but it doesnt do as much for my eyelashes even if i try and layer. the texture is more wet compared to the kiss me one which is more dry and i prefer dry formulas because i feel like it doesnt slip of my eyelashes and just not do much. however the dryer it is the more clumpy it can get. i even tried to leave the cap open for like two days to try and dry it out a bit. it didnt really work was pretty much still the same which might be good for some people who like the more wet formulas. the waterproofness is the same and holds my eyelashes it just doesnt do as much as the kiss me one. if yesstyle could get that in stock that would be awesome. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-3839173485936295134-full" data-show="-3839173485936295134-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - yesstyle.com user

Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara by Maybelline

"I have always loved this mascara, i've been using it for around years now and although i have tried other ones i keep going back to this one. The brush is perfect because it has the 2 sides that offer different ways to create a long lasting look. The side with the thinner stumpy brushes make the lashes longer while not adding too much fullness to create a more natural look. Then the other side with the longer fuller brushes offer more mascara to create a bolder look. Day to day i just use the shorter side but on a night i can go over the top of my day mascara with the fuller side to add thickness and a bold look without it going clumpy. The mascara liquid itself drys very quickly and doesn't leave lashes feeling weighed down. I would recommended this mascara to ANYONE its brilliant and i wont be using any others for a long time! « less" - superdrug.com user

Mad Lash Mascara by theBalm

"I had a favorite mascara that I kept coming back to, no matter how many others I tried. It's a drugstore brand, but I loved that it was intensely volumizing, that it didn't flake all over, that it willingly accepted multiple coats without clumping, and that my lashes never felt crunchy. All that for CHEAP is hard to beat. Well, this is the ONLY mascara that has ever truly met that and more! It's about double the price, but one container lasts a long time (doesn't dry up or run out before it expires), and the definition and volume from one coat is CRAZY. Normally I don't care for a curved wand, but this one is kind of magical. Just try it, you'll see! " - thebalm.com user

Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara by Fenty Beauty

"This is a complimentary product sent to me for testing purposes. Starting off, the packaging of the product is impressive, sturdy and striking (not cheap looking). It's not as heavy as the better than sex mascara which I like, the weight and look of this mascara is perfect. The price you're paying for this mascara is worth the amount of product you're getting. The mascara wand is long which allows you to comfortably apply the product to your lashes, while the wand head is smaller so it allows you to go over your lashes very precisely. The product itself allows you to lift, and add volume to your lashes. No other mascara is able to curl my lashes and keep them curled throughout the day, but it was achievable with this one. The colour of this a true black, so your lashes appear even fuller and longer. And it lasts the whole day. I'm very satisfied with this mascara because it gives my lashes the natural look while still having them look full, and curled (no chunks of mascara on my lashes look). Overall, very easy to use and effective applicator. This is an all in one mascara, great for everyday use. Great design including the flat for volume and narrow side for curling. 10/10 for this product, and I recommend it to everyone." - sephora user

Diorshow Pump'N'Volume Waterproof Mascara by Dior

"I have very thick long lashes, and have had a problem finding a mascara that lasts more than three weeks, even with only one coat. I keep trying mascaras, hoping to find one that lasts longer, plus has a waterproof version just as good. I came back to this mascara (both waterproof and non-waterproof), because I haven't been able to find another one that lasts longer. Having to replace a tube of mascara every few weeks can be rather expensive, which is why I keep trying. I might find something that seems really good, but then the tube might not make it even three weeks, and I just don't want to pay that much money on a regular basis. I have friends who can go two months on a tube of mascara.Having used this in the past, I knew it does an awesome job defining my lashes. The brush is good - it gets most of my lashes with one coat, and I go back and get the rest with a spherical brush. This brush is well designed to reach even small lashes. It gives me a well defined excellent effect. The staying power of this mascara is really good, and I wear it when I know I'll cry - weddings, graduations, water sports, sad movies... This mascara is great and creates some serious lash definition. The only reason I stopped wearing this was that the non-waterproof version didn't last long enough, and I ended up trying other things. A lot of other things...Well, I'm back to this mascara for day wear when I need a waterproof mascara. (I like the Iconic at night when I want my lashes to fan out).This is an excellent mascara. It lasts a very long time once applied, doesn't smear or smooth, and it doesn't run when I cry. I'm really pleased with it for my long lashes. I have friends who have very short sparse lashes who use this, along with the non-waterproof version, and it does awesome things for them, so I know this works for me, with my long lashes, and for them, with their short ones. It's really good and it's dependable. I highly recommend this mascara when you need one that's waterproof.PS Waterproof mascaras are supposedly healthier, anyway, compared to their non-waterproof versions. because product doesn't rub off on skin or get into eyes. « less" - Sephora user

When i use the other brands of Mascara it is usually too thick , create clumps just so that one would have a dramatic effects on the eyes. On the other hand, Estee Lauders is made of a uniform liquid that is so much easier to remove , So therefore i highly recommend this Mascara to anyone that wants to have somptuous lashes . As a matter of a fact i had it was a sample that i got from the store where i bought Estee Lauders products so if you want to give it a try you can request a sample and you will see it for yourself .Last but not least i would like to point out that Estee Lauder does not do any animal testing which i find very worthy of all respect , and i will stay loyal to this brand as long as i live .Env: development Less" - viewpoints.com user

Hypnose Drama Instant Full Volume Waterproof Mascara by Lancôme

"For the past few years, I've tried many high end mascaras with high hopes only to end up slightly disappointed, but continued to finish the bottle anyway due to the price. Some of the mascaras that I've tried include Too Faced BTS, 3 different Tarte mascaras, Josie Moran's argan oil one, Blinc's waterproof mascara, Makeup Forever's smoky extravagant one, and even two Benefit ones (including the forever raved about, "They're Real!"), and not a single one has impressed me as much as this one. It's possible the mascara gods have carefully made this mascara just for me, because I've never has a mascara make my lashes look so beautiful and thick and last for over 24 hours without having a single flake or smudge (I'm talking falling asleep in it after a long day and waking up with it still looking perfect) under my very oily eyes. Also, as a runner, I often get quite sweaty and get lots of smudges under my eyes. This mascara never lets me down after a long run with 0 smudges left. I might be alone in the fact that I love a super thick lash so much that I apply 3 or sometimes even 4 coats of mascara, but I don't like clumpy lashes and it's often hard to get thick and clump-less lashes with that many coats, but I never, ever have a problem with clumps or a classic "3 eyelash" look! Always makes my eyelashes multiply and become extremely thick and voluminous. When washing off this mascara, it removes like a dream. Most mascaras flake off or rip out my eyelashes trying to get it off, or I get lazy and just wash off my makeup without makeup remover and just face wash and most leave back smudges under my eyes. This is the first mascara I've come around that stays put forever and ever but when you want to remove it, it slides out gorgeously! Even with just face wash, it comes off in a creamy like consistency and never leaves any smudges behind. A+++ to Lancome for doing everything right with this mascara! I have absolutely 0 complaints about it!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="7064502757879877861-full" data-show="7064502757879877861-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Volume Effet Faux Cils by YSL Beauty

"My lashes are average to better than average length and I have brown/dark lashes, green eyes and tend to have kinda dark circles under my eyes. I've tried a LOT of different kinds of mascara. Regardless of what I try, I typically get that mascara specks-fallout garbage under my eyes after putting it on, or it smears on the top of my lids as I'm applying it like a bad eyeliner. And if I take a shower, them I always look like a raccoon as the mascara runs down. So anyway, I decided to compare two recent VIB samples of this YSL mascara and another brand, the Two Faced "Better Than $ex" (BTS) mascara on each eye. I even took pictures with my iPad up close to compare. I put on two coats. I think I only needed one, but I wanted to give them both a great chance to wow me. The Two Faced Better Than $ex Mascara in comparison was thicker and more like false lashes and gave a slight blue color effect to my lashes, although the color was black on the label....and I would have loved it normally, but I feel that this YSL one is overall a better product. The BTS mascara put messy goop on top of my lid as I applied it, my lashes clumped, and sweating at the gym created some minor fallout under my eyes with it. Plus, after my shower the BTS one definitely was way worse than this YSL in terms of dark mess under my eyes. On the other hand this YSL mascara did not clump, it made my lashes look long and black (the BTS one did also make my lashes look long and thick to its credit) , the YSL one weathered my shower and face wash wonderfully. It also looked more natural after application, just working as a great enhancer to my lashes in a non-heavy make up way. So I will be buying the full size of YSL, it definitely is a keeper. However, I will probably buy the Better Than $ex one by Two Faced too for when I want to look super dramatic and less natural. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-4328905057256299945-full" data-show="-4328905057256299945-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Waterproof Mascara by Dior

"I'm in my late 20s, and much to my chagrin, my lashes simply aren't as long and lush as they used to be. I'm always trying dozens of different mascaras, searching for one that will give me the length I want. This one is the absolute BEST! When I first started wearing it, I received several compliments on how lovely my lashes looked! It literally doubles the length of my lashes. It also defines and separates so that lashes never look clumpy or unnatural. I've found that if I apply it with a twirling motion starting at the roots of my eyelashes and moving upward, it gives my lashes a very nice curl (I hate eyelash curlers and hardly ever use them) that lasts all day. If applied right, this mascara leaves no lash behind, even the long lahes at the outer corner of my eye are doubled in length--a great way to get that cat-eyes look without even having to use eyeliner!I have very sensitive eyes and wear contacts and many mascaras have really irritated my eyes. This one has never given me any problems. Once applied, it doesn't smudge or streak. More importantly, it never flakes so I don't have to worry about getting little pieces in my eyes like I do with so many other mascaras. It also is easily removed with the right eye makeup remover and I don't lose as many lashes when removing it as I do with other mascaras.The only not-so-great thing about this mascara is that it doesn't give you much of an increase in volume. For me, the increase and length and definition make for a great classic, everyday look, but for special occasions I want my eye makeup to be a little more dramatic. On these occasions, I like to use another mascara along with this one to increase volume (tarte's "lights, camera, lashes!" works well.) So if length is more of an issue for you than volume, I definitely recommend this mascara. If you want to bump up the volume too, then I'd recommend using it along with a volumizing mascara. I know it's expensive and the price seems a little ridiculous for a tube of mascara. But believe me, you get what you pay for, and it ends up being worth every penny. Less" - Sephora user

The Shock Volumizing Mascara by YSL Beauty

"I’ve been using Le Shock for four whole days now. I love this mascara. Not only do I use less mascara when I go through my makeup routine in the morning. My lashes are more voluminous, thicker, and darker. Before I had been using covergirl mascara. Typically I applied 5-6 layers of mascara and in total spent a little more than 10 minutes just working on my eyes each morning.As a mom who’s always looking for makeup that will give me a natural, flawless look while saving time, YSL does the trick. While typical mascara is around $6-10 per tube, YSL Le Shock comes in at $29. But considering how it actually achieves the look so many other mascaras claim to, in my opinion it’s worth the cost.Let me walk you through the last four days just to prove how boss this mascara is.Day 1: My son and I had his cousin Ava spend the night, through many hours of rough housing, playing, sweating in the kitchen and rolling around on the floor. My eyelashes held up under the pressure. Furthermore, I spent about 10 minutes unwrapping my new Tuft & Needle bed which required much movement.Day 2: I attended a memorial service for my uncle on this day. I gave the eulogy and spent much of the day crying. Aside from normal minimal leakage, my eye lashes still held up length and color.Day 3: I went to Movement Restoration in Scottsdale for a massage and adjustment. With my face laying into a headrest for a full hour I experienced a little smudging under one eye, but no flaking, and for the most part the mascara still held up.Day 4: This was a completely average day where I ran errands, went to the grocery store, and did it all in the pouring rain. The running in and out of stores and shops drenched me with rain but again, the mascara looked just as it did when I had put it on that morning. « less" - Sephora user

LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara by Covergirl

"If you are looking for a mascara that really makes your lashes stand out, then Covergirl LashBlast Waterproof Mascara is where you'll find it! I am absolutely impressed by the results of this product. Lashblast Mascara goes on smooth, without all the clumps and buildup that you find with most brands of mascara. You get a proffessional look in seconds, and the results are simply wonderful. I'm not an expert when it comes to shopping for cosmetics. In fact, being a tomboy, i rarely ever put on much more than some lipgloss and a little powder. Last week, I was finally asked out by a co-worker I've had a crush on for years. I went shopping for makeup to wear for the big night. I saw so many brands of cosmetics, and didn't know what to do. I asked the clerk for some advice, and she instantly guided me to the Cover Girl section. She grabbed the LashBlast Mascara and raved to me about the results. With a review like that, how could I argue? I ran home and tried on all my new goods. The makeup I used was all made by Covergirl. Everything I applied, was done with ease, and it totally enhanced my nature features. When I got to my eyes, I carefully applied a little eyeliner and reached for the the LashBlast. My eyeslashes looked awesome! I didn't even need to curl them, they looked naturally long and beautifully curved, not caked on and phoney. This stuff stayed on all night and washed off so easily. Perfect makeup for a night out. My date actually told me that my eyes "look stunning"..yay! Thats my story, if you want proof you need to try it out for yourself. You can find LashBlash Mascara at your local retailer for a reasonable price. I recommend this product 100%.

Volumexpress 265 Blackest Black Mascara Size 0000300 by Maybelline

"I fell in love with this product back in 2012 when MissGlamorazzi (a.k.a Ingrid Nilsen) featured and recommended it in her videos. Once I started using it I was hooked! I have tried many mascaras throughout the years, but NONE have come close to The Rocket. I always find myself coming back to it. I have average lashes in length with very little (if any) curl. Not only does this mascara hold a curl beautifully, but it thickens my lashes and gives them great length as well – with no clumps! I have very oily skin and I get zero smudging with this product. People complain about this mascara being difficult to remove, but I use a waterproof eye makeup remover and it comes off easily. Without a shadow of a doubt, I can honestly say this is one of the BEST products Maybelline has ever created. I can only hope and pray they continue to keep this product around for a very long time! Less" - maybelline.com user

Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara by Hourglass

"I was exceptionally pleased with Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara which I received in Sephora's LashStash Mascara Deluxe Samplers. This mascara creates an awesome unmade-up look. It defines my lashes really well, but doesn't look like I have mascara on. In other words, it's doing a lot but doesn't look like it's there. It's hard to explain, but it enhances my lashes, and yet they look all natural. It's the perfect consistency, doesn't clump, and doesn't smooch or smear. I'm pretty sure it adds some volume, and perhaps some length. This is exactly what makeup used to be about - enhancing what we have and making it look as if we hadn't done a thing. Because of the effect I got with my sample, I ended up purchasing the full size version, which I've been using when I don't want to look as if I have on eye makeup. This includes places like the gym, and I've had in on in a hot tub and outdoor Jacuzzi. It would be the perfect mascara to take camping or hiking. It's perfect when you don't want your eye makeup screaming "makeup, makeup." While I'm a big fan of blackest black shades of mascara, this shade, although definitely black looks like a human shade of lashes, and not a black that came out of a tube. Another plus for Hourglass... I know many of us use mascara to create eye drama. False lashes are so popular once again, but let's face it, they don't look natural and everyone knows when someone is wearing them, no matter how good the application and how good the lashes. Mascaras that make it look like we have on false lashes are also the rage, but those look fake, too. There's a time and place for everything, and choices to be made. I don't want to look like I'm wearing false lashes because I'm a professional. False lashes look out of place in both the hospital and courtroom, and in many other occupations. The same came be said for overly dramatic mascaras, too. I also want my lashes to look great when my husband and I have a romantic dinner at home, but I don't want to look like I caked on the eye makeup for dinner. I'm looking for elegance and sophistication at those times. While I'm definitely an eye shadow addict, times like these call for a more wholesome natural look, not "night on the town" eye makeup. This mascara is so perfect for so many different times in my life. I'm very pleased with it." - sephora user

Mister Lash Booster by Givenchy

"I started wearing contact lenses at 13, so it's been a loooong time that I've been wearing them. Contact lens wearers will often have more lash fallout due to always "fiddling around" with their eyes, putting contacts in and taking them out. I don't wear contacts very often now, but I also have a lot of allergies, and often have very itchy eyes. Both these things set me up to have more lash loss than my sister, who never wore contacts or had allergies (we both started out with similarly long, full lashes). Sometimes when I wear mascara, it actually makes it look like I have even fewer lashes than I really have, which is the opposite of what we wear mascara for! I have no complaints on my lash length, it's just the lack of fullness and volume that bother me. I decided to try out this Lash Booster despite its price tag, but I know it's far cheaper than something like Latisse. I've been using it for close to 4 weeks now, and I really have seen improvement in lash fallout. There are times I'd rub my eyes because they were itching so much, and I'd lose 4-6 lashes. Doesn't sound like a lot, but given that an eyelash's growth cycle is 6 weeks (lose an eyelash, it's 6 weeks before it's replaced), and during allergy season, I'm super itchy (even using meds), I've actually had a little "bald spot" in the corner a few years back. Not cute. Today I gently curled my lashes in the morning (so as not to pull any out), and they looked better than they have in years. I only use it at night, before bed. I don't usually wear mascara during the day despite my lashes' usual lackluster look, so I don't use the Lash Booster in the morning, but I might try it and see if it helps it work even better. When I first opened the package, it took quite a bit of turning to get the serum to dispense at the tip, so I was initially concerned that I had one that dried up, but patience rewarded me. If this continues to work, I will definitely buy it again! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Excessive Lash Arresting Volume Mascara by Make Up For Ever

"Before diving into this amazing mascara, it is important to note 2 things: 1. I often use more than one mascara to achieve more drama with my eyes. 2. As a result of alternating between Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die for Turbo & Latisse, my lashes are a decent length. (They are by far not excessively long and thick.) This mascara has a smaller wand and the formula is softer. It gives length, color, & definition with the first coat, and thickness with the second. It is not clumpy so you don't have to worry about your lashes sticking together. (I like to use the spoolie side of an eyebrow pencil to separate my lashes before applying mascara.) It doesn't make your lashes feel hard or crunchy. At the end of the day, my sensitive eyes and contact lenses are neither dry nor itchy. You can build it for a day to night look or pair it with another mascara like Lashes to Die for or Lancome Doll Lashes for more drama. In abmascara world with a thousand choices- big or small wand, brush or comb, thick or volumizing, matte or demi matte, volumizing, curling, lengthening, defining, etc, I am happy that Make Up Forever has created one that is easy to use, and does it all! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-8787228826168117358-full" data-show="-8787228826168117358-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Caution Extreme Lash Mascara by Hourglass

"This mascara is amazing. From the tube to the actual product inside, you can tell that much effort was put into this product! The tube itself is so glam and feels like metal. I love this because it looks so much more expensive than a mascara in a plasticy tube. Okay, now on to the actual product! The black color of this is amazing. It's super dark, makes my eyelashes thicker, and gives them AMAZING LENGTH! I haven't even been using my lash curler with this mascara, which is usually is a must for me when using other mascaras. I literally cannot say enough about this. I only need one coat with this stuff, when normally I will use 2 or 3 coats of mascara. I also have accidentally forgot to wash it off before bed, and was amazed the next morning when my lashes still looked perfect. The mascara didn't flake off or give me raccoon eyes even when I slept in it! I wanted to see how many days/nights this could hold up. It lasted all day, all night, and all the next day. However, I slept with the same coat of mascara on for a second night and when I woke up the next morning, there finally was some flake and the tiniest bit of smudge on my eyes, still nothing compared to one night in other mascaras. But seriously, I have never had a mascara like this! The picture i included was when I woke up after the SECOND NIGHT of sleeping in the original application. If the mascara gets too warm, it can get a little clumpy, but the clumps are easy to brush out when that does happen. Best of all, I received this product complimentary for testing purposes! « less" - Sephora user

Diorshow Maximizer 3D Primer by Dior

"I have been using this product for 7 years and I will never go back to not using a lash primer - if I'm wearing mascara, I'm wearing this primer.Since I started using it, my lashes are longer and fuller (without mascara!). I have no idea what's in this product that makes your lashes grow longer, but I stopped using a lash curler years ago, I just don't need it any more. With the primer, mascara both stays on my lashes better (no flaking off or transferring/smudging to my lower lash line), and also comes off cleaner (especially noticeable when using waterproof mascara). The primer does a great job of separating and providing extra length to your lashes, just make sure to let the primer really dry before adding your mascara.When I get compliments on my lashes, people will ask which mascara I use, but honestly, I don't think it's so much the mascara that's making the difference, I'm convinced it's this primer! Will continue to purchase as long as they keep making it. « less" - Sephora user

Volume Million Lashes Feline Mascara by L'Oreal

"Best mascara brush, formula and holder I've tried.The brush has a narrow tip that can reach my inner lashes, the bristles make application easy and fast. The built in excess wiper in the holder is invented by a genius! No need to wipe excess mascara on a tissue, except for maybe the tip. Less product wasted. The formula is magical. I don't need an eyelash curler! I just apply the mascara, on the left and on the right, then I use my forefingers to lift my lashes up or curl it, for a few seconds and my lashes are curled! The formula dries fast and it helps hold the curl in place! Perfect for my short lashes which can get weighed down by wet formulas. I read somewhere that mascaras are like hair gel or wax. If you want to hold your hairstyle in place, you used a wax or a fast drying gel, else it'll fall and stick together. You also need to make sure you don't put too much else it'll look like a wet mess. This is so true! The fast drying formula of Voluminous Million Lashes mascara miraculously gave me curled and enhanced lashes.I put one coat for natural everyday look or two coats for night time look to put more volume or for more drama. I love how it defines, separates and gives volume to my barely there lashes. For everyday mascara, I prefer the washable kind, and this mascara is definitely washable, easy to remove! I just wet my lashes with water, put Cetaphil on my left and right lashes, distribute it well and wash off with water. Wipe it with white towel, and there's no residue! The only issue since its washable is it's not waterproof, so avoid getting rained on. It's a really excellent mascara. « less" - ulta.com user

Diorshow Iconic Mascara by Dior

"I'm in my late 20s, and much to my chagrin, my lashes simply aren't as long and lush as they used to be. I'm always trying dozens of different mascaras, searching for one that will give me the length I want. This one is the absolute BEST! When I first started wearing it, I received several compliments on how lovely my lashes looked! It literally doubles the length of my lashes. It also defines and separates so that lashes never look clumpy or unnatural. I've found that if I apply it with a twirling motion starting at the roots of my eyelashes and moving upward, it gives my lashes a very nice curl (I hate eyelash curlers and hardly ever use them) that lasts all day. If applied right, this mascara leaves no lash behind, even the long lahes at the outer corner of my eye are doubled in length--a great way to get that cat-eyes look without even having to use eyeliner!I have very sensitive eyes and wear contacts and many mascaras have really irritated my eyes. This one has never given me any problems. Once applied, it doesn't smudge or streak. More importantly, it never flakes so I don't have to worry about getting little pieces in my eyes like I do with so many other mascaras. It also is easily removed with the right eye makeup remover and I don't lose as many lashes when removing it as I do with other mascaras.The only not-so-great thing about this mascara is that it doesn't give you much of an increase in volume. For me, the increase and length and definition make for a great classic, everyday look, but for special occasions I want my eye makeup to be a little more dramatic. On these occasions, I like to use another mascara along with this one to increase volume (tarte's "lights, camera, lashes!" works well.) So if length is more of an issue for you than volume, I definitely recommend this mascara. If you want to bump up the volume too, then I'd recommend using it along with a volumizing mascara. I know it's expensive and the price seems a little ridiculous for a tube of mascara. But believe me, you get what you pay for, and it ends up being worth every penny. « less" - Sephora user

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara by Dior

"Although this isn't a review for Dior's "Extase" mascara (my previous, almost-there-but-not-quite-right choice), I could have titled this "Extase"---because I am in ecstasy. This is (for me) THE Perfect Mascara. With one coat, it gives me thicker, fuller, completely natural-looking-but-spectacular, fetchingly curved and curled lashes that are black but not BLACK---and that don't look as if spiders have decided to live above my eyes. And with two coats, I get thicker, more dramatic lashes than I've ever had before that look just like I'm wearing the best false-lashes...but don't make me look like a drag-queen (a perfectly valid look, but not the one I'm trying to achieve). The formula is phenomenally long-wearing (and I'm VERY tough on mascara, inevitably ending up with raccoon smudges after a few hours) but not harsh: I don't ever have that awful feeling that there's a sliver of...something in my eyes that wants OUT that I forcibly endure with other long-wearing mascaras for vanity's sake. Application does take a little initial fiddling: I've found that if you place the curve of the brush against the base of the lashes and then do that wee "wiggle-up" motion a couple of times (the same motion that those battery-powered mascaras produce that one can easily replicate oneself), all the lashes get coated, separated, and curled perfectly. By adjusting the placement of the brush, you can also mimic the addition of false lashes to, say, only the outer corners of the eye (which opens up the eye and gives that "Come Hither"/kitty-cat look). Yeah: it's pricey, but I think that it's worth every penny---and, if you compare it to the cost of, say, lash-extensions (which more than one person has asked me if I'd gotten) or even a good pair of falsies? Whatta deal!!! So, IMHO, this is one of those rare products that is quietly revolutionary, unparalleled, spectacular, and, well, non-pareil!" - sephora user

Volume Disturbia Mascara by Givenchy

"Let me first say I’m a total mascara “snob”. If I had to choose only one beauty product for the rest of my life, it would be mascara. It’s the one thing I cannot leave the house without putting on. a. There’s something I love about long lashes with full of volume. Without mascara I have very short, straight lashes. I’ll start with the packaging. I loved the sleek look of the red box. Then I opened it and took the mascara out and WOW. I love the tube. Super classy and unique. When I opened the tube and saw the wand my first thought was hmm not sure I’m going to get the VOLUME that I LOVE as the tip is plastic-y, short “bristles” and an in-curved tip; but boy was I wrong. I tried this for a week and a half, daily to get a good feel for it. The first time I was trying to get used to the un-curved wand tip and I did end up getting a little bit of product on my but I got it off quickly. I was able to get my lashes just how I like them, long and full of volume. There was no clumps and the shade of black was perfect. As the day went on I periodically checked in the mirror to see how it was holding up. Usually as the work day goes on - I’m in and out all day long for work - I have to reapply my mascara during lunch breaks, but with this Givenchy Volume Disturbia I did not have to re-apply AT ALL!!! This is super long lasting. One night during this trial I even slept with it on (I know, I know - super bad, but i wanted to see how it held up even during a night of belly sleeping with my face in a pillow). Still held up fabulously. This will definitely be my new go to mascara. Disclosure: I received this product for free or complimentary for testing purposes." - sephora user

Xtension Plus Curl Mascara by marcelle

"This mascara, I am so glad that I didn't buy another of my usual because this is my new all time fave. First, this mascara delivers wonderful, natural-looking color. The black is close to jet black but is a natural-looking jet black. ONE coat lengthened, curled and volumized all at once. Usually, I need at least 3-5 coats total using different mascaras for different coatings to achieve the vomume and length I'm after, and I already have full dark lashes. This made such a profound difference in only one single coat that I was downright shocked! I usually favor a department store brand and I am changing as of today. Seriously, this single product can make my face look awake and alive on no makeup days and lets me go from naturally amazing lashe look with one coat to a dramatic diva with a second coat. NO CLUMPING at all! I did not even have to comb through my lashes even once before or during application. This is absolutely the best I've ever used. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Birchbox user

"I had a favorite mascara that I kept coming back to, no matter how many others I tried. It's a drugstore brand, but I loved that it was intensely volumizing, that it didn't flake all over, that it willingly accepted multiple coats without clumping, and that my lashes never felt crunchy. All that for CHEAP is hard to beat. Well, this is the ONLY mascara that has ever truly met that and more! It's about double the price, but one container lasts a long time (doesn't dry up or run out before it expires), and the definition and volume from one coat is CRAZY. Normally I don't care for a curved wand, but this one is kind of magical. Just try it, you'll see! " - thebalm.com user

Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara by Marc Jacobs Beauty

"I am constantly trying out new products, always putting them through the ringer and really testing everything the brand claims it will do. I am disappointed by a lot of products, especially mascara, but this one is awesome!! I already love the Marc Jacobs O!Mega Volumizing mascara, and most of the Marc Jacobs products I own. But to be honest, for some reason, I wasn't expecting to like this one very much; I was completely wrong though and should have known better! Here is why. Brush The brush is full and curved, with the bristles varying in length and direction. A rule of thumb I always go by, is the way a mascara brush looks is roughly how it will make your lashes look. So based on this brush, your lashes should look thick, dramatic, and fluttery. The shape of the brush does a great job of depositing product into your lashes, but not too much. And if you do get too much product, a couple swipes of the wand distributes it out fairly evenly. The curve of the brush also helps to reach the corner lashes. Formula This is only of my favorite parts of the mascara. The formula is slightly drier, not in a flakey way, but rather in a thicker, not-watery way. I find that these formulas help to really pump up drama and volume and also hold a curl or style better. They are also easier to work with because you can generally shape and guide your lashes to how you want them to look. If you like the formulas of Benefit Rollerlash, Benefit They're Real, Lancome Hypnose Drama, or Too Faced Better Than Sex, you'll love this formula and this mascara! Results Drama!!! That's the first word that comes to mind. My lashes after one coat looked thicker and longer. After three coats, letting each coat dry slightly before the next, my lashes looked like false lashes! They were super thick, had so much volume, really dark, but what surprised me is they were so lifted, long and curled! I was definitely not expecting so much length from this mascara! The results lasted a while on me too; I even worked out and my lashes looked the same after. What's more is that I got these results without any lash primer. I always wear the Lancome Cils Booster XL under any mascara and it just pumps up the results even more, and it was no exception with Velvet Noir either; my lashes looked amazing! I would most definitely recommend trying this mascara out if you like super dramatic, voluminous, slightly clumpy (in a good way!) lashes! One tip to keep the clumping to a minimum though is to let each coat dry a little before the next one. When you apply too much wet formula, you will get more serious clumping, that isn't super cute. All in all, love it!!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user
