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

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

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%. I LOVE COVERGIRL! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - viewpoints.com user

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

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

Lash Sensational Luscious Washable Mascara by Maybelline

"What types of mascara have you tried? I’ve tried many types of mascara. For example organic ones, but they’re very pricey. I’ve also tried the apple ones, but I don’t think many girls have heard of them. I’ve seen my sister spend a lot of money on mascara, and she isn’t satisfied with it. So far, my favorite one is the Maybelline mascara. The price is affordable, the shape of the wand is very unique, and it lasts all day, it’s also easy to clean.First of all, the price is affordable, if you were to go to Sephora you’d be paying at least 13 dollars for a mascara that is .17 Oz. or .1 Oz. for around 6 to 8 dollars you can get a .32 Oz. mascara and it works well. You can get much more for less. If you’re on a budget, this is even more convenient because you don’t need to worry about “wasting” too much money. It is worth it, and it is shipped to you, or you can go buy it yourself. It is also a good gift if you’re not willing to spend a lot.Next, the shape of the wand is very unique, it has a curved tip. The inside of the wand which is the small bristles are used to add volume to your lashes and the outside is to separate the clumped-up eyelashes that you get while you put the mascara on, if you get any. Personally, this has happened to me before and I use the spread out end to fix it. If this does not work I just use a clean wand, which you can buy separately, if you’d like. If you curl your lashes, this wand will be convenient, since the tip of the wand is shaped into your lashes, it’ll be easier to apply. You don’t have to curl your lashes, this mascara does wonders.Lastly, this mascara lasts all day, it doesn’t crumble at the bottom of your eyelid. It’s not waterproof, but doesn’t come off even if it rains. It is also easy to clean, you can use warm water and whatever facial cleanser you use, or take a warm shower. You can use micellar water, if it just doesn’t want to come off. This happened to me once but it was easy to fix this. The thing I love about this mascara is that it holds your curled eyelashes the whole day.In conclusion, I would recommend this mascara. It lasts all day, may not be waterproof, but it sure doesn’t come off when it rains. Very easy to clean, some people may have complications if it doesn’t come off, but you can use micellar water. The wand is different from most mascaras, which helps give a lot of volume to your lashes. And the best part of all is that it’s not that expensive, even for people on a budget. It is worth it. Lately, I haven’t applied fake lashes on, I haven’t had the need to. Less" - walmart.com user

Telescopic Original Mascara by L'Oreal

"I've seen this in the store so many times and always thought about purchasing but I wasn't sure how I would like how small the brush is. Now, I don't like really big brushes on my mascaras because they tend to either poke me in the eye or transfer to my eyelid, which is just a pain. I normally tend to gravitate towards medium sized brushes. This is the smallest brush I've ever seen on a mascara but don't let it deceive you because it is a game changer! The size of the brush makes it so easy to coat every single lash, even those tiny hidden ones in the corner of your eye, evenly and thoroughly. I start the brush at the base of my lashes (which is so much easier to do given the size) and wiggle a couple of times and turn the brush outwards as I sweep it up my lashes. The results are GORGEOUS. It separates and lengthens the lashes tremendously. There's absolutely no clumps, even when you do 2 or 3 coats. My lashes look so much longer and more defined with this mascara. I didn't get a waterproof version, but even so, it didn't smudge underneath my lash line in the Texas summer heat. I wore it to a baseball game, in the middle of the day, in 90 degree weather, and it stayed put nicely. Once you are ready to remove your makeup for the day, it comes off very easily with water and a gentle cleanser. I use a very gentle foam cleanser and never have any issues getting this off, which is so great for my lashes. They seem a lot healthier than when using a waterproof formula that i have to scrub off. I couldn't be happier with its performance and will definitely be repurchasing this mascara in the future as it's my new holy grail!

"I'm so glad I was introduced to this product ❤ This doesn't run on oily eyelids, and no rubbing your eyes with mascara every where and no mess!! I even have watery eyes SOMETIMES and it never transfers on my hooded eyes, nor does it smudge or flake. No more raccoon eyes even if you have allergies. It never even burns by which I am so shocked. This gives my short sparse lashes the look of thick lashes, also makes them look LONG with NO clumps and feels like silk when going on, I love the formula its super smooth, and isn't too wet nor too dry. Applies very evenly and I never feel the need to "even" out my lashes with the brush. No matter how many coats (between 1-3) I wear I seriously feel like I'm rocking luxiourius eyelash extensions no joke. It gives amazing seperation, lashes look long, full, with lots of volume and definition. So easy to use I feel like it untangles my lashes and grabs even the smallest hairs that I can't even see! Brush never touches my skin or pokes my eyeball. This formula makes my lashes curl on their own I love it. You don't need a ton of coats, just looks even better and bigger if you do. 1st coat is super natural looking, 2nd coat is lovely and 3rd is aaahhmaaazing. So if your short on time lashes will still look good. Always stays on, I accidentally slept with it on and it still LOOKED good!!(although I don't recommend sleeping in ANY makeup) This is unheard of for me, it might stay on and be bullet proof but it washes off easily without pulling out or losing any lashes, so it's gentle to wear AND remove. I feel like my lashes are a bit stronger as well(maybe because of the good ingredients? ) and it never dries out my lashes either. I SERIOUSLY love this mascara." - ulta user

False Lash Effect Mascara by Max Factor

"I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I have been using it for about 6 months now and I use it during the day for a subtle look (with just one coat) as well as when Im going out and putting loads of make up on (with 3-4 coats plus sometimes some individual lashes)- it is so versatile. I find this long wearing and smudge proof, it doesn't crumble throughout the day, it doesn't clump even when you apply loads of coats and I have never got black panda watery streaks (which I have got from even waterproof mascaras in the past). I have tried loads of mascaras and even YSL False Lash Effect (which costs way more) comes second to this. It is perfect for adding volume and length. I can't imagine finding a better mascara than this! (Yes I know I sound like an advert for Max Factor!) If I had to find a negative I'd say maybe the brush is a little bit big for getting into the outer corners of the eye but I don't really know a way round this as it does such a good job otherwise. Less" - boots.com user

Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara by Maybelline

"This review is strictly for the waterproof formula. I have super straight Asian eyelashes. A lot of mascaras will actually uncurl them after I've curled them with an eyelash curler. (What's worse than straight eyelashes? Straight eyelashes with mascara that leaves marks on your under eye because they've lost their curl.) I've tried a bunch of drugstore and some department store mascaras over the years. I love the Maybelline Full 'N Soft Waterproof formula and the Maybelline The Colossal Waterproof Volume Express mascaras best of all so far. The Full 'N Soft is more natural looking and the Colossal is more dramatic. Been using the Colossal more often of late but they're both great mascaras and will save you over department store brands.

Full Lash Bloom Mascara by Covergirl

"I have long lashes that curl up naturally. I look for a mascara that will hold the curl of my lashes while also adding volume and a bit of length. My pet peeve is really wet mascaras that claim to be volumizing but make your my lashes stick together - ending up with 5 fat lashes is not volume! (For example, I like the Clump Crusher but hated the Lash Blast Volume.)I was hesitant to try this mascara because I had read and heard very mixed things, with a lot of people saying that it didn't do anything for their lashes. But based on my experience I couldn't disagree more, I love it!I love the almost-dry texture, and even though the brush is large and adds a lot of product, the texture (plus the long "bristles" on the brush) keeps it from making all my lashes stick together. As previously mentioned, I tend to hate wet mascaras, and so the texture of this product is a really lovely change. Looking back at some pictures of myself from one of the days I wore this mascara, it almost looked like I was wearing false lashes!It adds great volume and good length, and it holds a curl perhaps better than any other mascara I've used. Despite the dry formula, it doesn't clump or flake (or smudge either), and it removes very easily at the end of the day. « less" - ulta.com user

"How I use it: I apply this product AFTER I curl my lashes and BEFORE I apply mascara. I have medium length lashes that are very straight, and they never stay curled- but this really keeps them up for at least 7 hours. They are waterproof (I fell in a pool with it and it was still great).Another way I use it: I apply AFTER I curl my lashes but I DO NOT apply mascara. My lashes still look long and volumized but more natural. At first I couldn't believe it looked so good. Now, I only use mascara on special occasions and I use this product almost every day.

Air Volume Mega Mascara Washable Black by L'Oreal

"I wear contacts and I'm not super used to wearing mascara all the time because sometimes they irritate my eyes and I can feel them on, and it bothers me. Not this one, this one is the first mascara I don't feel at all and I can wear all day without it bothering me at any point. I curl my lashes before applying it and then I don't need to apply a ton to get an awesome effect, I do just one coat. It separates the lashes if you're careful, but it can get clumpy if you put too much. It gives a lot of volume but also length and it holds the curl all day! Even though it's not waterproof, it didn't smudge and it was easy to remove. I'm super happy with this mascara, especially because of the weightless feel!

The Super Sizer Mascara by Covergirl

"Finally, a mascara that is affordable but also gives great length and volume! I like my lashes dark and big so you can see them a few feet away. This mascara does it in just 2 layers. I thought the flat plastic wand was a little weird at first but it works great. First (after the eyelash curler) I mostly apply to the tips, then root to tip, then 1 quick run over the top of my lashes then brush out any clumps on the underside again. Do other eye then for the 2nd layer if you want the curl to hold, only apply to the bottom side of top lashes, I focus mostly on the tips to get great length. With any mascara if you want thick lashes but don't want clumps you really got to brush them out. Lashes last all day! Curl holds, no flakes, doesn't run, doesn't get in my contacts. Washes off easy with water and some light soaking. I've tried Benefit, Too Faced BTS, Tarte, Stila, Estee Lauder, Maybelline, L'oreal, Clinique, and so many more $$ mascaras but this one beats them all by far in quality and price. The ONLY complaint I have is I can only get it to last about 10 days with some contact solution. If I could get it closer to 3 weeks it would be ideal! But still, way way better than all the 'premium' brands I've tried at Ulta." - ulta user

Volume Flash Super Speed Mascara by Rimmel

"Yes, yes.... I do understand that this product is marketed to "lengthen and lift your lashes without any clumps." And it does just that. It doesn't actually matter how many coats you put on; the way the wand is designed (that lovely hourglass shape. God, I love that.) is perfect for separating and lifting your lashes at the same time. Obviously, it's not waterproof, but I haven't had a problem with flaking. (Go, Rimmel!) Why can't I just have a mascara that volumizes and conditions and lengthens and lifts and curls and is waterproof? Oh, well. Rimmel does a nice job with this one. My only [other] complaint is that the wand is so thick that I can't actually coat my bottom lashes at all. " - rimmellondon.com user

False Lash Effect by Max Factor

"I tried this mascara as I was in desperate search of a new one. I have trouble with mascaras as I have longer lashes that curl upward - resulting in smudging/transferring onto lid area, under the brow bone. No one wants to be walking around with black smears all around their eyes! This mascara definitely did the trick for me! I have had no dramas with transferring at all and do like the way the formula wears. I look for a lot in a mascara - the formula being a huge part and the brush needs to provide great application and result as well. It does live up to the 'clump defy' claim - just need to have a steady hand when applying - as with all mascaras I suppose, as when I hurry I end up with black dots and smears here and there. *Tip is to allow the formula to dry and use a cotton tip to flake it away. Don't just wipe it away when wet - this will smudge it worse! Great everyday mascara! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Boots.com user

Plumpify BlastPro Mascara by Covergirl

"I was really excited to try this! I usually use fairly high end mascara. With quality usually comes cost so I am always looking for something of great quality at a fraction of the price and so far I haven't found much. Until now... I'll admit the brush intimidated me at first but it only took me a few swipes to get it right! It went on smooth with no clumps right from the start, which is awesome! I instantly saw that my lashes were longer and more voluminous. The more I applied, the fuller they seemed to get. The formula seems nice and light and so even when I applied more my lashes weren't bogged down - they still had some great lift. What I like most of that if I want a day time look I can apply a few swipes and have beautiful, full, long lashes. If I apply more I achieve a more dramatic, night-time look. It's universal! Would I buy this? Absolutely! Would I recommend it? Absolutely! Save money AND achieve awesome lashes....yes, please!!! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)" - walgreens user

Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara by Rimmel

"When I first saw that the Influenster SpringVox included Rimmell London Scandaleyes Mascara I was excited to receive the product. I have had a hard time trying to find lash thickening mascaras that aren’t too clumpy. I understand that the thicker the mascara the thicker your lashes will look; however I want them to look Natural as well. I don’t want to look like I don’t know how to apply my makeup. As soon as I opened the box I spotted the mascara right away. It had a very appealing packaging. It definitely drew my eyes to the product. I opened it to discover the unique shape of the tube. It is large and has a catchy black and white appearance. To be honest the tube itself was a little too thick for me. I travel a lot so I need something that can fit into my makeup or travel bag easily. I then began to realize that its shape was needed due to the unique shape of the brush inside. The next day I decided to give the mascara a try. At first I had a hard time applying it. You definitely need to practice with the brush to get the exact motion that is needed to apply the mascara correctly. The brush has to sets of ridges that are designed to give you the ultimate amount of coverage for your lashes helping you to achieve the maximum length and width desired. I did have a problem applying it to my bottom lashes due to the size of the brush, however I am not oppose to using two different mascaras to get the look I desire. I instantly saw a difference in my lashes, however for me the mascara went on a little too think. I needed a lash brush to help separate the lashes after I applied each stroke. I did love the way the lashes instantly curled though. The shape of the brush definitely gave my lashes a curl I have never experienced before. You definitely would not need to use a lash curler when using this product. In the end I have become a fan of this product and already have suggested it to many of my friends. It won’t be one I use every day. However it will be my go to mascara when I am planning a night out and want my eyes to pop and demand attention." - walgreens user

Volum' Express The Falsies Push Up Drama Waterproof Mascara by Maybelline

"I have straight skinny thinning lashes. I really like this mascara. I have tried high end mascaras, too expensive for what I got. Things to make note of;the wand is a bit confusing in the beginning, but as I brush it own I also twirl the wand up. It takes practice to get the results the mascara promises. I didn't find the product to be wet at all but to be fair this isn't a wand you just brush on and go. You do have to use with intent to separate & build lashes. The product lasted all day, my lashes are fluttery (lol) and most of all stay curled, no flakes, no smudges." - ulta user

Volumexpress The Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara Black by Maybelline

"This review is strictly for the waterproof formula. I have super straight Asian eyelashes. A lot of mascaras will actually uncurl them after I've curled them with an eyelash curler. (What's worse than straight eyelashes? Straight eyelashes with mascara that leaves marks on your under eye because they've lost their curl.) I've tried a bunch of drugstore and some department store mascaras over the years. I love the Maybelline Full 'N Soft Waterproof formula and the Maybelline The Colossal Waterproof Volume Express mascaras best of all so far. The Full 'N Soft is more natural looking and the Colossal is more dramatic. Been using the Colossal more often of late but they're both great mascaras and will save you over department store brands. " - drugstore.com user

Volum' Express The Falsies Black Drama Washable Mascara by Maybelline

"I use this as my everyday mascara. For my more casual and natural look I use one-two coats. If I want a more dramatic night-time look I will use two-three coats. It probably doesn't need that, but I like to curl my lashed after the first application, and use the 2nd or 3rd coat to set the curl. I love this brand because it separates, lengthens and adds volume without clumping or looking overdone. I don't have a ton of lashes, so this helps thicken them and makes my eyes pop! Love it! I use the waterproof version when I know I will be near water, but don't use that one as often because it is hard to remove. This one is perfect!" - ulta user

Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara by Maybelline

"I use this to layer over my 3D fiber mascaras since the 3D fiber mascs is not waterproof. I love that it also thickens, and lengthens. I used only this for a while, but my already very thin , sparse, short lashes from having chemo got even more so - I would recommend this to those who have more "normal " lashes that need extra ooph. It dries in good time , not a lot of clumping if it sets a few moments between coats. I`ve used the Flare, and Drama Falsies mascs, and I love them as well. I will continue to purchase and use for as long as this product is available." - ulta user

Lash Pump Mascara by Absolute

"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!! Less" - Sephora user

The Falsies Push Up Angel Washable Mascara by Maybelline

"This is the BEST mascara I have tried so far in my life, and I have tried MANY. I constantly receive compliments on my lashes because they look full and long without that fake/clumpy look. I find it works even better when using an eyelash curler prior to application.With my complexion, the brownish black color looks much better than black, very black, etc. I have blonde hair, green eyes and the classic northern european skin. It is hard to find this color in stores so I have to order it from Maybelline's website.The brush style combined with the smooth formula make it easy to apply and make corrections before it sets completely.Some users complain that its clumpy, but I have never had issues. It might seem clumpy just after the first swipe across the lashes if too much product is applied, but the brush is amazing and can help with this.Application tips:First, curl your lashes with one or two squeezes.Then, dip brush once into the product and then wipe any excess that collects on the tip of the brush back into the bottle.Next, swipe onto lashes with an upward motion several times in a row. Start from the underside of the lashes, base to tip. Do this slowly and carefully. Use a slight right to left motion at the base as you move upward.To make lashes look even thicker/fuller, dip brush into product a second time and swipe onto lashes one or two more times. The second applicaton MUST be done immediatly after the first or it will be too dry. *Cold product is harder to apply.Some users complain that this is hard to remove. It is waterproof, so it should be hard to remove. Use the makeup removing wipes from Costco or makeup remover cream from Avon to help remove it completely. Less" - maybelline.com user
