I wanted to love this as it was such an intense black. It went on well but brush didn't appeal to me.
Anyway on it went and by the time I arrived at the office I noticed like black dots under my eyes, just on my cheeks.
Seems the general dislike was mutual and the mascara was making a break for it down my face!
Tried it again the next day and it still flaked off so cut my losses and we parted ways.
My friend wears it every day and has done for 7 years so I guess it's just not for me!

This is my all time favourite mascara. It's wand is perfect to separate and lengthen those lash hairs even the smallest ones. Just be careful. Do not go over it . It can look clumpy if you do so. Personally i have never felt the need to go over because it applies perfectly in the first go. And I can really be very clumsy with the lower lash. This wand just does magic.

I don't like to spend a lot of money on my mascara as it's something I wear every day, and I wear false lashes when I'm out the weekend. I've tried a lot of height street brands and I find myself coming back to this mascara every time. It can clump so you need to be careful not to over-apply. The thin wand is great for application and reaching those smaller lashes; and the colour is jet black (I've found some mascaras can look like an almost black colour). If I'm going for a more dramatic look, I'll do two coats. It's actually crazy how much this lengthens my short lashes.

This mascara is very good at separating and lengthening lashes, and it has a skinny applicator which makes it easy to do your lower lash line. However, if you're looking for volume, I wouldn't recommend this. I also find the applicator awkward to use because it is so long and skinny, and managed to stab myself in the eye multiple times while using it.

I really like this mascara, it adds length and volume without clumps and is buildable so you can add layers without it looking messy. Unfortunately loreal are no longer cruelty free and so I have had to revise buying any of their products in future.

One of the best drugstore mascaras i have used. Gives amazing length and i have gotten a lot of compliments. Separates my lashes so my real lashes look like i have got fake lashes on. Its a very good product and good mascara to invest in. Worth every penny.

Was looking for a dupe for my Mally mascara which has been discontinued in the UK. This is nearly as good! It's amazing, extremely lengthening and volumizing, literally gives you false lashes. You have to be careful with application as to not clump it up. L'oreal has some good mascaras.

I really like this mascara for lengthening, the brush curves around the lashes which really helps them to look longer and darker, it's not a great mascara for volume, but it definitely separates and lengthens. I would recommend this to those who want a mascara that separates and defines each individual lash but not for those who want tons of volume.

Do not understand how this is ranked 97th on here. Best drugstore mascara I have used by far. Great for lengthening the lashes and is suitable for a natural look. I do however find the wand/brush a bit too small which made it hard for me to apply this on my lashes.

This was a great mascara for lengthening lashes and would recommend it if your looking for a subtle and natural looking mascara! However it doesn't volumize which is what i look for in a mascara as well.
