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

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

Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara by Tarte

A bestselling, vegan mascara that lengthens, curls, volumizes, and conditions.

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

Lash Slick by Glossier
4.3(1533)$16

"I purchased Lash Slick a little over two months ago, and instead of forming an immediate opinion like I usually do with a new beauty product, I waited. I wanted to see how often and under what circumstances I chose this mascara. Mascara is probably my favorite makeup item to purchase, and I've collected some quality examples from high-end companies as well as drugstores. I'm very fortunate to have long lashes, but they're thin and fine. I am always eager to try a new mascara that promises to make them look thicker and fuller, so I snapped up Glossier's version. Initially, I was fairly pleased with my results. I wasn't blown away by the dramatic transformation of my fantasies, but I chalked it up as a decent addition to my mascara arsenal. To my surprise, over the past two months, Lash Slick has been the mascara I reach for nearly every day. It's become my go-to for work, meet-ups with friends, errands, and anytime I want to look polished but not overdone. It gives me a natural, clean look that makes my lashes stand out for all the good reasons. Unlike my mega-blast-punch-you-in-the-face volumizing and curling formulas, Lash Slick is simple and quick to apply, and it doesn't end up transferring to my lids or brows. I don't need a separate lash comb to remove clumps, and it lasts all day without flaking. I wasn't sure why I would ever need a water-resistant mascara. I never wear waterproof mascara unless it's to a wedding or funeral because I dread removing it (and losing lashes in the process). It turns out a water-resistant formula was what I've really been looking for, I just didn't know it. This feature means that Glossier's mascara doesn't melt or smudge in 99 degree weather, and it doesn't run in the rain or if I shed a few tears when I laugh too hard or get a little emotional. Honestly, I had no idea how much I was crying in a given day... And Lash Slick is quicker and more painless to remove than most of my other mascaras. I love it, guys, and that's that." - glossier user

Lash Primer Plus by Estée Lauder

"Env: developmentEstee Lauder Lash Primer makes my lashes look great . i have long lashes but they are very thin and and are almost unoticeable but once i use the Estee Lauder Lash primer my lashes become amazing and with other brands. 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

High Impact Mascara by Clinique
4.3(1706)$19.50

"I love this mascara. It's my default mascara and my number one. When I use other mascaras, I feel like I'm cheating on my Clinique High Impact. I'm actually now a huge fan of Clinique as a brand because their other products don't do it for me, but this mascara is a huge must for me. First of all, I'm asian, and I have naturally sparse, thin, short eyelashes (aka nonexistant) to begin with. Consequently, just the resulting lashes that this mascara gives me is a miracle. Now the reasons why I love this mascara and think everyone should try it eventually, no matter which one you're using currently: 1.) It's buildable. If you like natural looking, soft lashes, just apply one or two coats. If you want some dramatic, super lengthened lashes, just apply a few more coats WHILE your lashes is still wet. This brings me to: 2.) This mascara is more of a wet consistency, which I personally love. I find drier mascaras to be really annoying because it's just so much harder to apply when it's like, flaky. This consistency really allows the formula to glide onto your lashes, which is why you can go for a more subtle look or really amp it up without it clumping. 3.) This mascara is such a good price, for such a great formula, for the size. I'm pretty that by .oz, this mascara seems to hold a little bit more in the tube than other high-brand Sephora ones, and for less than $15. 4.) Even though it's not technically labeled as waterproof, it's long lasting and I notice that sometimes even when I cry (boyfriend, movies, whatever), it doesn't get everywhere. My eyeshadow is actually the first to go." - sephora user

No Smudge Mascara by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

"BEST AND ONLY MASCARA I WILL EVER USE! I have tired many high-end to low-end mascaras simply because I always faced the issues that include: smudging, not long lasting, creates raccoon eyes and difficult to take off. No matter the product I have used, waterproof or not, it would create gray circles under my eyes through out the day that made it looks like I had dark circles under my eyes. And many mascaras I used that claimed to be waterproof (better than sex) would make my lashes clumpy and and runny over time. I wear false eyelashes daily and only use mascara mostly for my bottom lashes and this is the only mascara that will still in place!! I wore this to Disney with the hot-humid F.L. weather and the mascara would not budge. I jumped n the pool and I went down water slides and it still stayed in place. There was only very minimal flaking as a result of that but through the day it looked just how I applied it in the morning. AND I went to sleep with it on and didn't even create dark circles under my eyes! just very little flakes. I would recommend this if you struggle with your mascara giving you racon eyes and if you want something long lasting. The best part is that it is very easy to take off as well! This will be the only mascara I will ever be using because I am obsessed." - sephora user

 Cils Booster XL Enhancing Lash Primer by Lancôme

"The main reason I use this lash primer: when I get home from work at the end of the day, I look like I have just applied my mascara. I have tried mascaras that come in a double ended bottle with primer on one side, mascara on the other, and found that flaking of mascara was a problem. I use this with Clinique High Impact Mascara (regular, not waterproof) and the mascara holds all day. I do have long lashes but I find I don't have to curl them because using this product under my mascara gives my eyes enough pop. Also, I don't have to reapply my mascara at any time during the day. The product is thick and is similar to mascara in consistency. Therefore putting mascara on top of it makes for fuller looking lashes, which is nice.When I remove my makeup at night, I wash my face with Purity by Philosophy (not plugging products, just letting you know how it works in my hands), and I get complete removal of the mascara and the Cils Booster XL and pretty much no lash loss like I have had with eye makeup removers (I am going to have to attribute that, in part, to Purity). One thing to note: as with any mascara product, when you open a new tube there is quite a bit of product on the brush. The effect is that a lot of product ends up on your lashes, and then you layer on mascara. This can lead to clumping or a look that I find less natural, where the individual lashes look really thick (clumped, perhaps). I have a wire-toothed lash comb handy for that. An alternative is to blot the brush with a tissue to take something of the product off of the brush before applying the product to your lashes. I have never tried that. Less" - Sephora 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

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

Neulash Lash Enhancing Serum by Skin Research Laboratories

"I have been using this religiously since last July. I apply to my lash line pretty liberally--sometimes you need to use 2 dips for an even application. It took about 3 months before I noticed a dramatic difference in the length and fullness of my lashes. The 0.1 oz tube lasted about 6 months for me, so I consider this a good value. Things to note: some of my "new" lashes can be a little unruly--curling in different directions (I actually had to trim one long lash that wanted to curl sideways!) or growing away from my lash line. I had to start being careful about applying this only on my natural lash line to prevent new lashes from popping up further up my eyelid! In the beginning I noticed that my left eyelashes were growing quicker than my right eyelashes, and I think it was because I would apply before bed and then lay on my right side and inadvertently remove some of the product with my pillow. So make sure it has time to dry completely! Also, I do wear contacts and have sensitive eyes, so I was a little nervous, but I have never had irritation or redness from this product. Five stars and love it! « less" - Nordstrom user

Naturally Glossy Mascara by Clinique

"I had mixed luck with my last Clinique mascara attempt, but I'm glad I decided to give them one more chance. I really love this mascara! My lashes are pretty average when I don't have anything on--they're not super long or super short, not thick or thin. However, they're not so sparse/thin that I wouldn't run out to do errands without mascara. This mascara comes in a great little metal tube. For some odd reason, I really like that! There's no label on it other than the usual "C" at the top of the cap, so it looks sleek and cute in my bag. In terms of performance, this mascara is great! It coats well, makes my lashes look dark but natural with one coat. If I build to two or three coats, I get a flirty doe-eyed fringe that doesn't look too dramatic. It's definitely not a false lash effect, but it makes my lashes look lush...and real! I've noticed it makes my lashes look longer, though it's not doing quite as much in the volume department (like I said, not a falsie effect). I also like that my lashes don't feel "crunchy," even after multiple coats. The brush head is fairly small, which makes snagging those tiny little inner lashes a breeze. If you coat your bottom lashes, I'd imagine this wand would work well for that too. I like that the wand itself is long enough that I can put my mascara on without fearing I'm going to poke myself because I can't get in there. This mascara did not flake or transfer on me, which is just short of a miracle. I usually always get flakies by lunchtime, and since my office doesn't have AC, I tend to get raccoon eyes from the heat too. I'm thankful this stuff really seems to stay put. On the other hand, it comes off super easily with warm water and my gentle cleanser at night. No scrubbing or tugging necessary. All in all, if you're looking for a product that will boost your natural lashes without looking super glam, this is a good bet. Good staying power, no flaking/smudging, and no eye irritation - a winner in my book. At this price, it's hard to turn down too. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil by Too Faced

"An essential must in every girls makeup bag. I'm a huge mascara person, especially waterproof because it holds a curl so much better, and it lasts longer for me. And every girl knows the struggle to wash it off at the end of the night whether it be regular or waterproof. And with waterproof, how raw your eyes can get without a good cleaner. I bought this over the summer to give it a try. Hands down, the best mascara remove ever! The oil coats the eyelashes so evenly. Just don't get the oil in your eye. Have done that a few times, and it's not pleasant. But when I washed my mascara off with my normal cleanser; like the product says, it melted right off. No irritation afterwards. If you're skeptical, don't be. The product does exactly what it says it does! And it actually lasts a good amount of time. It's not something that you go through within a a month or two. Like I said, I bought it in the summer, and I'm still using it. And I wear mascara every day. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara by MAC

"Like everyone out there, I am always seeking my holy grail mascara. Even though I continue to experiment with others I always end up coming back to this one for a number of reasons. I realize we all have our various preferences in mascara but every time I buy a new tube of this I wonder why I strayed from it. I have tried them all; mostly prestige or high end but I really find this one meets my needs for a reasonable price. I am older and my lashes have thinned and faded and also now tend to grow in different directions. I find that many popular mascaras now make my lashes a clumpy mess even when applied thinly and carefully. This product smoothly coats my short fragile lashes and helps them hold the curl from my eyelash curler. It defines and lengthens without making them feel dry, stiff and spikey. It does not irritate my chronic dry and sensitive eyes and washes off very easily which helps reduce further loss of lashes. It wears well all day without smudges and flaking, is a very rich black color and never looks like spider legs. It will not give massive volume if that's what you're looking for but gives a polished well defined lash look. A great every day mascara. It can be built up a bit. I don't coat my bottom lashes any more (too old for that look) but it works great for that too. Small brush keeps it from getting all over the place when applying too. It's truly my favorite.....think I'm gonna order another. For reference other mascaras I like: Benefit Roller Lash, Chanel, Lancome Definicils. Mascaras I hate: It Superhero, Too Faced BTS ( flakes and clumps soooo badly), Bare Minerals and Lancome Grandiose and several other Mac mascaras. I hate clumpy lashes! If your preferences are anything like mine, give this one a try. You won't regret it." - ulta user

KUSH High Volume Mascara by Milk Makeup

"I've been on a mascara hunt for some time now, as I've been having issues with smudging and raccoon eyes. A Sephora employee recommended this to me, and although I was a bit hesitant to try it (as I knew very little about it and the brand), I decided to give it a try over the more popular mascara's at Sephora, and I am so glad I did! Not only has this mascara not run, but I also started putting it on my bottom lashes, something I feel like I haven't been able to do in a while for fear of smudging. I spent all day in the hot sun at NYC Pride, as well as (lightly) cried in it, and no one is more shocked than me at it's staying power. Now, let's talk lashes! It must be said that I naturally have fairly long, thick, easily curl-able lashes, and that I favor the wispy lash look. To me, this delivers wispy, flase-like lashes with two to three coats max (just one coat on the bottom lashes), and it almost feels like I have nothing on. The brush applicator took a little adjusting to, as it is bigger and heavy than most, but I kind of feel like the brush does all the work for you and keeps me from over-applying the product. This mascara may not be the most lengthening or volumizing, but I really like the look it delivers, so wispy, full and feathery :)" - sephora user

Hypnose Buildable Volume Mascara by Lancôme

"I bought this masacra right after my dad passed away because I knew that I would need a waterproof mascara to not smudge or drip right off when I cried. I was recommended by a sales associate to try the Make Up Forever, Smoky Lash. However, the Smoky Lash would come off when I wiped my tears. So, I was recommended the Lancôme, Hypnôse Waterproof - Custom Volume Mascara, which was supposedly swim-proof. Boy-oh-boy, this mascara EXCEEDED my expectations! Unlike the Smoky Lash, Hypnôse stays on through anything! I can put this on in the morning and cry all day without it smudging off onto a tissue (ie. my dad's funeral)! It is amazing! Not only is it extremely durable, but it is also the best mascara to not clump (I've tried Smoky-Lash & Dior Show, which are dry, clumpy, and hard to apply because of their larger brushes)! Hypnôse goes on smoothly, especially with the help of it's small brush. If you accidently get it on your eyelid or under your brow, which I always do, just lick your finger and wipe it off. I get so many compliments on my eyelashes and all I do is curl them and apply two coats of Hypnôse. I have attached photos of me with each of the Smoky Lash and Hypnôse mascaras. I assume that the Smoky Lash looks more faint than the Hypnôse because of it's dryness. Therefore, making it harder to stick to the lashes, while the Hypnôse is more wet and holds onto the lashes no problem. P.S. I have gone swimming while wearing Hypnôse and it actually stayed put! I was a little worried after going swimming and sitting in the hot-tub 12 hours after applying it (8am-8pm), and I was very eager to check my face in a mirror. However, there was no reason for me to fear because this mascara does what it says it's going to do. I will never use another mascara, even if this one takes a little extra work to remove. An extra minute (literally one minute), is worth having a mascara that stays put through anything. My next trial of this mascara is going to be an hour long hot yoga practice, but I have no doubts that it will stay put because I was sweating in the hot-tub and it didn't move. I will let you know how it goes. ;) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Inimitable Intense Multi Dimensional Mascara by Chanel

"I have tried many mascaras and this is the best. First off I have super sensitive eyes and wear contacts. So many mascaras have irritated my eyes to the point where my eyeball will get swollen and it's super painful. Luckily this mascara never irritates my eyes and not only that but this makes my eyelashes look amazing! I have naturally long eyelashes but they easily clump together and one side isn't as full as the other. Plus my eyelashes are very straight with no curl. This mascara adds the right amount of volume with zero clumps and I can easily separate my lashes so they are perfectly defined, even and full. Plus it curls them and I don't even use a curling wand. I've used this mascara about 6 months now and I swear my lashes have grown even longer since using. This formula stays put all day without any fall out and washes off easily at night. As long as Chanel keeps making this, I will continue to buy and use. Worth the splurge! « less" - Nordstrom user

Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara by Estée Lauder

"Words can't describe how much I love this mascara! I am a contact lens wearer and I have allergies as well. My eyes are watery and I'm usually sensitive to certain types of mascara. Not Double Wear! If my eyes water, no worries! My mascara isn't going to run down my face. A few perks I'd like to point out is that the mascara doesn't have that funny smell some do, it washes off easily with warm water and it lasts all day. I always apply Lash Primer Plus and let it dry before applying this mascara. It just gives my lashes that extra "oomph" I like! The look this mascara creates is very dramatic, not a natural looking lash. If that is what you're going for I'd try something else. For me, I want the long, thick and bold lash look, so this works! I'm never going to search again! " - Estée Lauder user

Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara by Estée Lauder

"This mascara is hands down my favorite. It's formula adds both volume and length to my lashes. When it comes to mascara it's all about application not always the formula. Wipe off excess product before you apply. I start from the root and with a wiggle and rolling motion I move up the hair strand. Continue doing this without redipping the wand into the tube for another coat. This will fan out the lashes with out gunking them with excess product (creating clump). Take your time don't rush it. Though I must admit some formulas are pretty terrible, this one is not. I apply this technique to all my mascaras and it works like a charm. With this mascara in particular I find that it does not clump or smudge. There's no need for a second coat unless I want a darker lash." - sephora 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

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

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

KUSH Lash Primer by Milk Makeup

"I have to say, I am quite impressed with this lash primer. I look for a number of things from a lash primer, including more volume and length, but I’d also prefer to see a difference in the wear of my mascara. For this reason, I tested this primer with a mascara that I find underwhelming because it doesn’t give me much volume or length, and I fun into flaking problems. This time, however, my lashes looked substantially longer and more voluminous. The milk makeup lash primer brush is rubbery and thin, which was perfect for getting close to the roots of my lashes. I could see volume and length building up immediately upon application. One thing I noticed, though, is it is definitely necessary to wait a few minutes after applying the primer to apply mascara on top, because if it is too close afterward, the benefits of the primer will wipe right off. I received this complementary for review purposes, but after how much I’ve enjoyed this primer, I am really interested to try the regular mascara. I would recommend this product, as it helped an underwhelming mascara stay on longer and keep from flaking and gave me length and volume. I also tried this with a mascara that I like on its own, and I still saw improvement in my lashes. If you’re in the market for a lash primer, this is definitely worth a try." - sephora user

Unlocked Instant Extensions Mascara. by Hourglass

"I love this mascara! I already love Caution by Hourglass which is great for volume. Unlocked is better for length! If you like longer eyelashes, you’ll definitely love this mascara. It’s not waterproof, but it doesn’t make my straight lashes fall! It lasts all day with no smudging or flaking. And it didn’t get on my eyelids even though mine get oily sometimes. It comes off with water, and I use Summer Friday's amino gel cleanser which usually leaves me with raccoon eyes when I use Caution. None of that with Unlocked! The packaging is beautiful, gold, and cute with the bunny. It’s the same heaviness as Caution, which I love. It makes the mascara feel expensive and special. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for long lashes!" - sephora user

High Volume Mascara by Trish McEvoy

"This mascara offers the best of of both worlds. It stays on like water-proof, never smudges, and yet washes off in the shower with only water and wipe. My lashes look long and full and the look lasts all day. What I have learned from using this mascara for the last three years: 1) It's hard to find, so just order it on line and don't go looking for it in stores (Nordstrom always has it); 2) Never just try to touch up and go by reapplying to the edges or corners (It clumps and mats when re-applied to existing mascara); and 3) When it starts to get sticky or really thick, order a new one becuase it goes dry quick at that point (It lasts a long time but at some point, you notice it is getting thick and if you wait too long, it gets too thick to apply). My bottle lasts me about 2 1/2 - 3 months with daily use. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Nordstrom 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
