Not a miracle worker but very good mascara: long lasting curl and lenght with no fall outs. Builds up to two coats before it gets a bit clumpy and spidery

The best mascara I've ever tried!

I have tried so many mascaras only to find I end up having panda eyes. I have finally found the perfect mascara for me. There is no smudging, flaking or clumping. Really pleased with my purchase.

I do really like this mascara when it's teamed with a mascara primer.
It lengthens and adds volume.
5 May 2015 by
I had read in a magazine that this was fantastic do I had to give it a go. It did stay in although sometimes it looked clumpy and didn't seperately the lashes very well.

LIves up to being #1 selling mascara. Adds length and volume. First uses are a bit too wet then after works perfect. Great packaging. Arrived quickly.

You've probably already heard that this product is a winner, and I'm here to confirm this.
It's is a great high-street product at such as reasonable price.
Depending on how far I want to take it, I can really build up my lashes (for that night out), or have a more fuller natural look (for day to day use). I'm happy with the length of my lashes, and use this product to add body and thicken them. The brush is great for this, and really lets me work on my inner lashes.
The application lasts me all day, and doesn't drop down, the container is perfect in size and fits nicely in my bag.
This is the only mascara that I now use, and it has never dryed up in the bottle x

I've used this mascara in the past and it was lovely however, it dried out really quickly and didn't last long.

Best mascara ever :) no smudging and perfect lashes!
20 March 2015 by
Fabulous lashes for a change. The second time I bought this item, It won't be the last. It makes a Great job of sparse lashes.
28 February 2015 by
It's been a love-hate relationship with this mascara, but I learned to love it after all! It really does what it claims. I gave it only 4 stars because I recently got the Roller Lash one and that one is beyond belief :))
27 February 2015 by
The best mascara on the market - simply :-)
23 February 2015 by
Not the magic potion I believed it would be - there are plenty of other mascaras at a more reasonable price that do pretty much the same thing. Pros: nice brush, lashes look thicker, easy to apply. Cons: flakes, very difficult to remove, does not have the lengthening effect it promises.
20 February 2015 by
I have been a long term user of YSL faux lash extension mascara but because it always dries out so quickly I thought I would give this a try. It doesn't give me the same length as the YSL but I'm happy with it and I like the applicator which prevents lashes from sticking together. Great everyday mascara!!
19 February 2015 by
This is a high quality mascara which is a great volumizer. You don't need much of it to get the desired effect. I like that it is very long lasting and doesn't flake which I hate with mascaras. Will definately repurchase.
17 February 2015 by
This is an amazing mascara, really lengthens and defines my lashes! Would defo recommend!
16 February 2015 by
This mascara is just the best! And believe me, I tried a lot of them. Every time having 'panda effect'. But not with this one. Reminds me of the golden double-brush Guerlain had at some point but cheaper. Definitely recommend it to everyone!
11 February 2015 by
It doesn't clump and washes off easily
9 February 2015 by
Hands down best mascara i have ever used! Doesn't smudge at all and makes my lashes so long!
6 February 2015 by
Are they real? A question no-doubt you will most definately be asked when wearing this. I have used so many mascaras - lots of designer ones but this by far beats them all to a pulp! I am a contact lense wearer and have sensitive eyes and this is great for me. They key is to build up if you want the extra thick dimension, otherwise they still look nice. No bits caking off and no clumping - Trust me and try it and flutter away!
19 January 2015 by
Mascara is the product I can't live without. I've tried many but keep going back to this one as it's the best
14 January 2015 by
I used Maybelline before, but it was very hard to be removed totally. So I changed brand. And I am very happy for it can be removed very easily and clean. This makeup does not get splotchy and stays very natural looking all day. I like it.
6 January 2015 by
I had heard amazing things about They're real, and was very happy when I got this mascara for a really cheap price at Sephora (on sale with some other products, a huge Benefit box or something),but NO-NO-NO. I have thick, long but rather white-ish and absolutely straight lashes, and this one was a catastrophe. The wand is probably good, but the mascara itself is somewhat flaky and well.. Every Maybelline counter mascara is better. So if you really want it, borrow a friends' or buy the smaller one to see, if it fits you.

This is an expensive item which i dont feel it any better than a lower price.
Not worth the money
19 December 2014 by
I refuse to use any other mascara than this! Its hands down the best one on the market!
9 December 2014 by
This does what it says on the tin, makes it look as though you've had lash extensions or are wearing false eyelashes. The perfect finish for your eyes!
25 November 2014 by
I wear this Mascara everyday and I often get a lot of compliments on this mascara. I love it and have tried so many brands but always come back to this. Its so buildable too. I wear soft lenses and have sensitive eyes and this is the only mascara I dont react to. It really is awesome and you definately wont be disappointed :-)
10 November 2014 by
I bought this mascara because it had very good reviews, but when I put it on it had a lot of chunks and wasn't smooth on my eyelashes at all! It looked more fake than natural!!
I never put it on ever since, such a waste of money. Did I have a wrong batch or something? I can't believe it still...
11 October 2014 by
Bought because of great reviews, very disappointed when using it. Looks good on, thick and curly lashes, doesn't smudge, but lashes get stiff, and the mascara is almost impossible to get off. In spite of good mascara remover. I had to really scrub the skin over- and underneath my eyes, to get the most of the mascara off. Will never ever buy this again.
7 October 2014 by
Hands down the best mascara ever, separating, volumising and pitch black! It is hard to get of, but I use an oil and its no problem.
11 September 2014 by
Very disappointed with this mascara.Problem is that it smudges big time which is just what I didn't want.
Within a few hours I have panda eyes.
9 September 2014 by
I literally cannot express how much love I have for this mascara, it's just incredible! It's as if I have fake eyelashes on without all of the hassle in the morning! You really don't need to re-apply during the day, I never feel the need to because my lashes look as perfect at the end of the day as they did that morning! I'm always purchasing more when look fantastic have their amazing offers on because I just can't imagine living without it!
8 September 2014 by
This mascara is excellent. It does everything that it promises. I will certainly purchase this mascara again! :)
14 August 2014 by
I love this mascara - it doesn't smudge or run when you get a tear or two. It goes on amazingly and worth the price.
5 August 2014 by
Best mascara I've used, lasts for ages (as a casual mascara user) and makes my lasehs look fuller, thicker and longer. Applies on really easy and hardly clumps.
4 August 2014 by
Mascara is amazing, I use the third.
1 August 2014 by
its an ok mascara, i have short stubby lashes, i dont feel like it made them any bigger. tho i like the tip
28 July 2014 by
I have really long curly eye lashes - this was recommended to use as I find it hard to find one that separates them.
The applicator is a hard comb rather than a soft brush - don't know whether that helps- as if I had known this myself - I probably wouldn't have bought it.
28 July 2014 by
This mascara is PERFECT!
The only bad thing about it: it's superhard to remove again!
21 July 2014 by
I've mostly avoided applying mascara because I never got the hang of it. It always looked clumpy, smeared, and unnatural. But I've heard really good things about Benefit's mascara that I decided to try it anyway. It is now part of my everyday make-up routine. I have short eyelashes, but this makes my eyelashes long and thick. The brush is easy to control and it doesn't take a lot of effort or require a lot of strokes to achieve the perfect look. I will definitely buy this again
6 June 2014 by
Though I didn't notice a much of a difference in my lashes compared to the results I've gotten with other mascaras, it did make my lashes look nice, and I really love the wand as it comes with the perfect amount of mascara on it as well as makes the application very easy
4 June 2014 by
only mascara i'll use. Love it!
4 June 2014 by
I really like it! And I like the brush a lot! It gives a nice everyday natural look and then I would use some other volumizing mascara for extra drama.
The first thing I noticed is that it doesn't irritate my eyes (I use contacts) and it doesn't flake (it smudges a bit though, but all mascaras I use does that), but it also still lasts all day on my bottom lashes, which I very hard to find a mascara that does!
I would buy it again even though I have to wait 10 days or more after ordering to get it. Totally worth the money and wait!!!
27 May 2014 by
I am a mascara junkie and I have tried a lot of high rated mascaras (and others). I have heard and read a lot about this mascara and wanted to give it a try. The brush is excellent! You get a lot of nice separated lashes and the tip is great. The mascara lets you reach every lash and get to the corners of the eyes. I wish that more mascaras had this brush!
However, on the down side it's not a party mascara. It's not very bold but it's good for separating your lashes.
9 May 2014 by
I absolutely love this mascara. Think I'm on my fifth one (they last me about 4 months using it everyday).
I have very thin, short eyelashes but this mascara makes them so long and thick (not too thick though!)
I've tried many others including Mac but this is by far the best!
5 May 2014 by
Excellent mascara. Received compliments from day one of using this mascara. Not clumpy, removes easily too. Will be buying again for sure.
