"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.

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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!

"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.

"This is my go-to mascara and has been for years. I've lost track of how many times people ask if "those are my real lashes" the answer is YES! And they wouldn't be anything special without this mascara. This product adds volume, lengthens, and separates. The one thing it doesn't do is curl my lashes. When I first get a fresh tube it does tend to come out quite thick. When I buy a new tube I keep the old one for awhile and use it to separate the lashes. I find that only the waterproof version works for me. When using this I curl my lashes apply 2 coats (making sure to let dry between each coat. I then apply a third coat right before I leave or in the car before heading into work. I have been using this since I started wearing mascara (6ish years ago) I've tried other but always come back to this one. Definitely recommend! « less" - ulta.com user

"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
"Before I bought this I read all of the reviews here and so I will try to cover what is not mentioned or what I think is especially helpful. I am Asian and have average length lashes, which are thin and dont curl up (they dont turn down but they stick straight out from my eye). I have never liked using mascara because I hated curling, applying mascara and then separating my lashes especially when all that didnt seem to make much difference. I have used all of the highly rated/reviewed high-end and drugstore brands (e.g., Diorshow, Chanel, pink/green tube, etc.) and just gave up on mascara... until this one. Application: I have practiced using it for about a month now and the method for best results for me is: (1) apply white base coat thickly, (2) immediately apply black mascara and comb through with fine tooth lash comb (i have the tweezerman one) and immediately repeat with 2nd coat of mascara and comb through. I do each eye separately and as quickly as I can so the mascara doesn't dry -- once it dries on your lashes it turns rubbery so you cant comb through them. My lashes look really thick and long and curled after this. Although yes it takes time it is worth it! Plus I do not have to curl my lashes at all -- in fact I tried curling first and it was just a waste of time -- for some reason this mascara makes my lashes curl up and hold the curl even when my lashes get wet and it really doesnt smudge at all. I have used mascaras that were supposed to curl lashes but they never worked for me. Removal: Some reviewers said that they had trouble removing the mascara. I think the trick is you have to hold water on your closed eyes for at least 5-10 seconds before you gently wipe down. Although the mascara will come off by cupping water in your hands and holding them over your eyes for a few seconds before wiping your lashes down while you wash your face, I like to use eye makeup remover pads. Again you just need to hold the soaked pad on your eye for about 5-10 seconds before wiping down or else it wont come off. Which is great because you can remove only your eyeshadow/liner and not the mascara by just wiping your eye quickly (plus my lashes still stay curled believe it or not!). The worst thing about this product is it dries out fast. I used this mascara almost every day for about 3 weeks and then it got very thick and clumpy. I dont know if this is typical but I suspect it is because you inevitably get some of the white base coat mixed in with the mascara over time. Once it dries out then it flakes and gets very clumpy when you apply it. Not only did I replace it but I bought 2 this time. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-1855800489157346158-full" data-show="-1855800489157346158-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - drugstore.com user

"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
"The packaging is really pretty. The color of green is even brighter in person. You can't really tell from the picture but the little rubbery bristles are slightly different lengths. The middle ones are a bit shorter than the ends so those lashes get really lengthened. I like this mascara a lot, since I hate mascara clump and flakes. If you are looking for one for thick, fake eyerash effect, this is not the one. It is more like everyday use natural look definer. Waterproof type works great too. No racoon eye just a little smudge at the corner of eye, which is a quick fixable. Oh you may need little practice though, till you've get comfortable to apply. At first I had to train myself to do one coat at a time *slowly* so that the lashes didn't clump together. I also wiggle the wand from side to side as I apply it. This stays on all day and doesn't flake off (like Cover Girl's version). It's also not sitcky and it doesn't turn my lashes to little sticks. I swear, my lashes have never looked so long! I will definitely be buying this again! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - viewpoints.com user

"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
"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
"Okay so I read a lot of the reviews in here and I am just convinced that the people who hate this mascara have no idea how to 1.apply mascara and 2.remove WATERPROOF mascara. I have tried every drug store and high end mascara out there and this is one of my top 5. I have long and thick lashes. It separates perfectly, coats my lashes without clumping, doesn't flake off, barely smudges and it stays on all day. I remove it with coconut oil because it is gentle on your lashes and waterproof mascara will rip your lashes out if you do not take care of them and remove mascara properly. That being said, if you think it's clumpy, wipe the brush off before you use it then put it back in the tube and move it around and then use. Sometimes there's too much product on it when you first buy it which will naturally make you hate it from the get go. Secondly, do not use water and soap to remove waterproof mascara, that's brainless. Use an oil based makeup remover, coconut oil or baby oil. Love this mascara a lot and will buy again!" - ulta user
"I’ve been using and rebuying this mascara for at least the last 12 years and thought it about time to leave a review. I always tend to buy 3-for-2 which makes this extremely affordable. I think it helps offset the lifespan of the product because I get through one every 7-8 weeks, applied with 2 coats on top lashes and 1 on bottom lashes, 5 days a week. The first few applications come out a bit ‘thin’ (when you can still see the yellow bristles of the brush as you pull out the wand to apply) and it takes about a week to really see the formula at its best (when the bristles come out totally blackened). I don’t pump the wand - just dip it in and out, with minimal wiggling so as not to goo things up too much. This really helps with longevity and application; less formula on the wand means less chance of gunking up your eyelashes. not that it’s a ‘gunker’ - it’s a very nice mascara to stroke on and the brush will clean up any clumps as it goes. You have time to style your lashes which is handy for those times when you get a bald spot; you can fan out the lashes from either side very easily to fill in the gap. The result is a very deep colour that’s on the matte side so lashes looks thicker. Lashes come out full and feathery (think Ardell Demi Whispies) rather than glossy long spiders legs, and somehow seem to multiply so you get the effect of 10 hairs where you thought you had 2! Can be built up very nicely to 3 or 4 layers for maximum impact, but it really isn’t necessary. I find 2 coats more than enough. It lasts well throughout the day but starts to breakdown after 12-14 hours when I begin to feel flakes around my eyes. This is a sign that I need to whip out the make-up wipes and sweep it away. The formula is at its best up until the 5-6 week mark, then it starts to dry up and the application transfer needs a bit more work. Wand-wiggling ensues. Expect to chuck it from 7-8 weeks in. It’s a great mascara though and week worth the money. Less" - boots.com user
"WOW!!! I am very surprised I like this product but, I don't see myself switching again for a while. Although I am over 40, I still have very long eyelashes so, when I was using Double-Extend, they were constantly rubbing the insides of my eyeglasses -- very annoying... I wouldn't say that my eyelashes are sparse but, there are spaced in between them that i really don't like and eyeliner wasn't enough of an optical illusion, unless i went very heavy with my eye makeup. I was considering getting individual false eyelashes put on to fill the volume but, I really didn't want to spend the money. This mascara is what I really was looking for. It takes a bit of getting used to during application because it is a bit unforgiving but after a a little experimentation, I found what i was looking for. I've been wanting to sport a "modernized" pin-up girl look and if I concentrate this product on the length of my outer lashes, I get a bit of a cat-eye look without having to use a lot of makeup. I usually use a heated eyelash curler after mascara application but, it is important to not that this product does not play well with that appliance. I found that, for the best effect and control, curl first with a regular lash curler, then do the tops (backs) of the lashes, and finish with the usual volumizing wiggle at the bases with the desired follow-through on the length. This product is highly customizable and if you mess with the lashes too much before they dry, they will clump together. I had to step away and do something else for a minute, re-group, and follow up with a brow comb. I also figured out that if it starts to flake, then you have done too much. Luckily, the flakes are very dry and I was able to brush away with a kabuki brush without smearing it all over my face. I was very concerned that It is not waterproof but, it held up to humidity very well and came off at night fairly easily with a make-up remover wipe. However, I am curious to know who's bright idea it was to only offer waterproof mascara in black and blackest black? Some of us need black brown to not look wierd!!! I noticed this to be a trend across all the major brands... I'm not happy with it as a trend but, maybe the newest non-waterproof products hold up better than their predecessors -- at least this product does! I'm not a huge reviewer of products but, maybe L'oreal has changed that -- this is my second review this morning that I have been so satisfied as to be compelled to share. Keep up the great work, L'oreal. Your products are truly the only ones that have the tones to complement by bizzare mixed-chick complexion. « less" - lorealparisusa.com user

"I read a lot of reviews that said this mascara is only good for a minimal lash look, so I just bought it because I needed something waterproof; I wasn't expecting lengthening or thickening effects. I was surprised and impressed when it made a difference with my lashes--they looked longer, held their curl better, didn't clump or stick, and even looked a little bit thicker! But I have short, thin, straight lashes and I normally don't wear mascara, so if you have longer lashes and have tried lots of mascaras, you might not be as impressed with this one. Still, I'd say it's worth trying because it was pretty waterproof for me, and I have oily lids. " - yesstyle.com user
Lash out in bold, beautiful color with NYX Professional Makeup's Worth the Hype Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara. A "ride or die" mascara through and through, this comfy formula lets you build up fuller, longer-looking lashes with ease.
"This was the best mascara on the market, hands down! The unique conditioning/ fortifying feature was a perfect combination with waterproofing to give your eyes the longest length possible. Kept eyelashes curled, no clumps or smudges, lasted all day. Nothing compared! Like many others, I am disappointed in the discontinuation of such a fine product! I've tried their new beauty tube formula that has the fortifier, but haven't found in in waterproof. Non waterproof is awful and I returned it in good conscience. I've been a loyal L'oreal customer for many years, buying many products. I'm afraid to say that may not be the case in the near future. Go back to the original formula, L'oreal or make a new product quickly, that can hold a candle to it!" - lorealparisusa.com user

"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
