long lasting with no smudging or wear from water

- Ulta User

loved this, applied nicely and lasted all day

- LancôMe User



this mascara truly gives me volume without excesive clumps and elongates my lashes beautifully

- Sephora User

amazing volume and length

- Ulta User



it’s separates my natural eyelashes and gives them volume and length and makes my lashes look like i got false eyelashes on

- Sephora User

great length

- Ulta User



it magnifies every little lash, it stays put all day and all night if you want :) and for being waterproof, it actually comes off easily with eye makeup remover

- Macy's User

best waterproof on the market, and i’ve tried them all

- Sephora User



it doesn't irritate my eyes, doesn't flake, doesn't smudge, holds the curl, and is comfortable

lengthens and curls lashes

but if ur looking to go on a lash free binder like i am in hopes to actually grow my own lashes then this is for sure the mascara to purchase u really have to see it to believe it my biggest issue with mascara that help give volume and length is clumping i hate to have an unnatural looking clump but this is the first mascara that doesn't give me that clump it's alllllll natural looking length i love it

- Sephora User

some mascaras i have used in the past that claim to make your lashes long goes on so chunky and takes several applications so get the length you want but this one goes on smooth and an instant lash length boost for a more natural looking long lash

Before you get lash extensions try this first

It's like lash extensions in a bottle and I can create any lash look from mild to wild and it actually lasts 3 days. I could bawl my head off crying while simultaneously sweating, working out in the rain and this mascara still wouldn't flake, smudge or wear off. I've actually washed my face and my mascara was still pristine (something I don't mind because looking nice going to bed with mascara on, I can still wear eye cream.) The next day my mascara still looks pristine! Day 2, pristine. Day 3, I touch-up the corners. Day 4, I eventually remove it (comes off easily using eye makeup remover.) No lashes ever lost or broken. This mascara lifts, curls, separates, extends, ads volume and paints lashes all in one product. I'd have to apply several coats of any other mascara to get the bang I get with this. It also seems like the mini lasts as long as the full tube and a little lasts 3 days for me so I go for the mini. It's smaller, cheaper and easier in my hand. If you want these same qualities in a non-waterproof version that removes with soap and water fast each night then go for the pink original Monsieur Big. Personally, I like the fact that I can wake up with makeup and look pristine (no, my lashes do not clump together during sleep with this.) I understand why Allure gave Monsieur Big Mascara by Lancome an award. Previously I've been loving from Sephora: Benefit Roller Lash and Bang Gal and Tarte Lash Paint and Lancome Definicils for reference. The fact this stays on the way it does, I keep reaching for this one over and over. Less

My New Favorite Mascara

Lash type: I have medium-length lashes. My lashes tend to stay straight, but can easily hold a curl. This is honestly one of my new favorite mascaras. Whenever I wear this mascara, people constantly ask me if I am wearing false lashes. I love how long-wearing this is, and the fact that I only have to apply one coat in order to get the dramatic lashes that typically takes about 2-3 coats with other mascaras (Essence I love Crazy Volume, Benefit They're Real). This mascara doesn't separate each and every individual lash, but it definitely volumizes and gives you that "va va voom" and fluttery lashes within one coat, and if you want to get extra-dramatic slap on that second coat. If you have sparse lashes, I would recommend to remove some of the excess and pick off the little clumps with tweezers. The formula is quite thick and I believe that's why it can have a tendency to clump lashes. To be honest, I can't tell if it has a wet or dry formula, I think that it's a good medium. It seemed really wet and glossy when I first opened it, but after a couple of days, it already dried to a perfect consistency and has been like this for a couple of weeks. I love that this mascara doesn't flake or smudge and if you take a nap in it (which I know you shouldn't do, but mistakes happen) it doesn't budge. I've yet to test if this is tear-proof. My only con with this product is that it is pretty difficult to remove. I just use makeup removing wipes since I don't have the oil-based eye makeup remover. With waterproof mascara, I usually have to scrub at my eyes with the wipes and with regular mascara, it removes pretty easily and only takes a few swipes. This mascara is almost like I'm removing waterproof mascara, but it doesn't require as much vigor. Harder to remove than regular mascara, and slightly easier than removing waterproof. Again, this is with wipes not with the special oil-based eye makeup remover that makes removing makeup a breeze.

All rave, no rant.

This is as close to perfection I've found. Like most of you, my quest for a holy grail mascara is never ending. My criteria? Volume without clumping or spiking; separation, no smudging or flaking. This mascara hits them all. I am blown away. I got a travel size with my Sephora points and my expectations were not high. I usually don't use waterproof, but I figured, maybe it will smudge less if I try waterproof. Immediately upon application I was like whoa...length, volume, separation, curl. It was too good to be true. I went about my day fully expecting to look like a racoon mid-afternoon. Hello! No smudging at all. No flaking either. I prefer shorter wands and this is perfect. The brush is awesome. No scratching my eyeballs which happens a lot with fat brushes. I like how dense the bristles are. The brush grabs every lash and really fans them out at the corners. No clumps! I don't even need to separate with a safety pin, which is something I've been doing for over 25 years. LOL! A lot of people complain about having a hard time removing it. I use Neutrogena eye makeup remover and a cotton pad and have no problem at all. Sometimes I use just the Neutrogena makeup wipe and the next morning I have some smudges, but who cares? I wash my face and the smudge is gone. This is by far the best I've found. I have long lashes, but they are very fine. This plumps them just enough and doesn't give me spider legs. One coat and done. I'm in love. Less

I received the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara for free in exchange for my honest and descriptive review of the product. The Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara comes in a cute black box with shiny pink decals and lettering. The tube is black with the same shiny pink with "monsieur big" written. Right off the bat, the packaging drew me in, I am a sucker for cute package that catches my eye and have been known to try out a product just because I liked the packaging.I have worn the mascara for two days now and I am completely hooked. The brush is large and is easy to use, it coats all lashes with just a few strokes. This mascara does not require more than one layer, however it is buildable if you wish. I personally like big huge lashes that have a "false" effect. Let me tell you with just a few layers and hardly any work I seriously looked like I was wearing false lashes! I got so many compliments. I was able to put on multiple layers and had no clumping at ALL. A lot of mascaras even high end ones cause clumping if you try to add more layers.The consistency is very thick and black however it does not cause drooping and did not smudge all day. I wore this mascara out outside all day in the heat and it looked just as good when I got home as when first put it on in the morning.The biggest pros :*lasts ALL day*provides big volume and lots of length ( false lashes effect)*Does not smudge*Great packagingAs soon as I run out of this, I am immediately buying another from Lancôme directly, super impressed and pleased. Because of my awesome experience with this mascara I am now looking into purchasing more of their products I haven't tried before. I have to say move over MAC cosmetics mascara, Monsieur Big by Lancôme is in town!!#gotitfree #monsieurbig Less

Not good for my sensitive eyes

Got this as a deluxe sample for birthday gift....I absolutely can't wear this. Definitely very black...it does add volume, but not a good formula or wand. Too many clumps on the wand, and it's really hard to apply to bottom lashes. My eyelashes lose curl with this. I also wear contacts, so I blink a lot and I suffer from somewhat dry eyes. This doesn't make my eyes water like the Roller Lash but it does seem to make my eyelids itchy and tender! Plus I end up pulling flakes off my lashes all night. Smudges under my oily eyelids....in summary, this mascara basically makes me want to pull out all of my eyelashes after just a few hours. Proceed with caution (you might love it, you might hate it).

Hi everyone! I've been looking for the perfect mascara to use on clients for a wedding in April, and saw a lot of reviews from muas saying they use this on wedding clients. Have any of you tried it? Is it truly waterproof and long wearing? (doesn't smudge under eyes throughout the day, etc?) I want to make sure I use products that will keep them looking gorgeous all night! #help #opinions #waterproof #budgeproof #smudgeproof

I need a new mascara. I have the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes one and I do like the formula. However I find that by the end of the day my lashes do not look curled anymore. Any recommendations for mascaras similar to this that will hold a curl longer?

This is the best! It lasts all day for me (8-10 hours), but would probably last longer if I did not remove it. Definitely recommend:)

In my experience this one definitely gives more length, and the Urban Decay kind of got clumpy on me. This is just an amazing mascara all around, definitely my all time favorite.
