Amazing, lengthens, curls, looks so natural

This is my all time favorite MAC mascara, and I've tried them all!! The wand is small but it delivers the perfect amount of mascara on each lash. It coats and separates each lash very precisely and doesn't make them clump. It holds curl extremely well, adds noticeable length and some volume, and looks super natural. For some reason, the way it goes onto my eyelashes and holds them, kind gives me double eyelids, and I can't figure out exactly why (I'm Asian with monolids that can be coaxed into double eyelids sometimes). It also doesn't smudge or flake all day. This mascara is amazing. However, if you're looking for dramatic volume, this isn't the one.

Used to like it, now my eyelashes are falling out

I was looking for something that wouldn't make my mascara smudge or run, especially since I have 12 hour work days. I needed something that would last. I loved this at first because it doesn't smudge. It does wash off fairly easily with warm water, too, which is great. HOWEVER, after using this for several months my eyelashes are now starting to fall out. I already have long, thin lashes as it is so I definitely don't want to lose more. I will be switching products back to something I used to use and deal with looking like I just did the walk of shame.

Keep Coming Back To This One

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.

Love! Works great for the Top & Bottom lashes

Love this mascara. The wand is perfect and applies evenly and lengthens beautifully. I love a more natural look and this is not too too black and not clumpy at all. I was a fan of the Mac Zoom Lash which is now discontinued...so in search of a good mascara I tried IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara by recommendation and that stuff was way too clumpy and thick and black..in my opinion it was awful. This stuff is more natural and not just perfect for the bottom lashes but for the top as well. Oh and one more thing great about this stuff is that it lasts all day but removes so easily at night..it comes off with my face wash..no need for a 2nd step with makeup remover

Amazing

It's hard to find a good mascara that actually lifts and works. This works amazing! I had to give a review. I used to use the discontinued waterproof Mac mascara and was bummed because that was the only one that worked on my thin lashes but this,...I am happy they finally found a replacement. The brush is thinner too which I feel gets all the lashes better as well. Some brushes are too thick and are useless. This one is long and thin and helps gets all the end lashes as well. I am a side sleeper and smash my right lashes and they tend to have an odd curl at the end. The brush helps to kind of help brush it so it fits in with my other lashes. It lifts all my lashes and doesn't weigh them down either as other mascara's would and I hated that. I am very happy with the mascara. Comes off easily as well, make-up wipes or oil are my go to removers. (The Mac oil is also great by the way.)

I’d like to try out a new high end mascara, and I’m considering either Tarteist Lash Paint, Tarte Maneater or It Cosmetics Superhero. I was wondering if anyone has tried any of these and what your opinions on them are, or if anyone has any high end mascara recommendations I’d appreciate it.

I’m looking for a mascara/ some tool to help my eyelashes stay up. I have pretty straight ones and I use an eyelash curler before I apply mascara however it just doesn’t hold. Can anyone help?? Thanks!
