This product does it all for me, it's got lovely coverage and is perfect for both volumising and lengthening my lashes. As I already have quite thick, dark and long eyelashes, I find this is one of the products that enhances them without being clumpy or spidery. The applicator itself is great, and I recommend saving one of those if you tend to apply serums/oils to your eyebrows or eyelashes as they're very handy.

Many people do not like this mascara, but I love the way it looks on my eyelashes, it lengthens, thickens and doesn’t clump on my eyelashes. My eyelashes are quite long in the first place but I love to make them look extra😂 this mascara does just that and it lasts most of the day, leaving only a bit of crumble on your cheek at the end. The brush enables me to get into my lashes without smudging it on the skin around my eye. Personally I think this mascara is amazing and would definitely recommend it to other people.

This is my "go-to" mascara. I love it's fat brush which enables complete application of the mascara on all lashes including the tiny ones. It gives a full and thick lash look, and I have had many compliments regarding the length of my eyelashes, when wearing this! Can't recommend this highly enough!

This mascara is okay. The brush is nice but it make your eyelashes clumpy. It’s a bit big so you can’t get into the corner eyelashes or the bottom lashes unless you want mascara on your under eyes😂🤷🏼♀️. I would use it again as the volume is great but it get clumpy after one coat. Like that’s unreal😂. Even if you put it over fake eyelashes it does the same and ruins your fake eyelashes. But to stop it clipping up I got the brush and soaked it in warm water for 5 mins and it stoped the brush from getting mascara stuck in it. This really helped and reduced the clumping. I would highly recommend this method if your mascara brush is clumpy and disgusting. The mascara is really handy and isn’t that expensive. It isn’t a bad product!!!!! I would recommend this product if you like volume mascaras but it is a lot of work but you don’t have to do that if you don’t mind the clumps and you like that looo but personally I don’t. I wouldn’t buy this again. I think it’s a waste of time even though it gives volume.

I’ve had this mascara in my makeup bag for a while now as it’s been handy when I’ve needed it, this doesn’t mean it’s any good though! It’s not a bad product in itself, it’s just the wand and the way it applies. I know it’s a volumising mascara but it leaves my lashes clumpy after only ONE application! It’s all good if you like that but I tend to not reach for products like this. I will not be buying this again.

I didn't really get on with this mascara. I found it gets really clumpy even after only a small layer. The brush is also too fat to be precise with the inner eyelashes. The colour is very deep black which is great and it does give a decent volume. But I won't be buying again.

This was one of my very first mascaras I think! I just loved it from the first use. The packaging fits perfectly in any make up bag! So you could easily pop it in your bag if you’re going on a night out and want to bring it out for a top up! Or just throw it in your everyday bag. I’d definitely recommend buying this. Affordable and goes on so nicely leaving no clumps or fall out😍

Okay so this mascara clumps constantly, and I got some in my eye and had an irritated eye for a good few days, and it burned like heck. I hate this mascara, but it's a love/hate thing I suppose, but would definitely never touch this again. Too thick, too clumpy and I thought I was gonna lose my sight to be honest!

I wouldnt buy it again but it was a good product! I loved the big brush and it seperated my lashes and didnt flake off. After a while it did start to get clumpy which I think was maybe time to throw it away.

Very good mascara, lengthens lashes and doesn't clump unless applied heavily. It is a more going out mascara rather than everyday one as it is quite dramatic. The only fault is the wand is quite thick and can smudge whilst trying to get the inner lashes, but i would definitely recommend this mascara.

lengthens your lashes without clumps and intensifies the colour giving it a false lash kind of look. however the wand is a little thick so sometimes smudges onto my eyeshadow whilst applying but apart from that I would completely recommend this mascara as I think it is well worth the money.
