This mascara is awful. It does nothing for my lashes and is super runny. It smudges and looks awful. The brush is plastic and is really bad. The mascara just sits atop my lashes it doesn’t glide through. This is the worst mascara I’ve ever tried! Do not waste your money!

I had heard good things about this mascara but unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. It is very, very black. Probably the most black mascara I have used. The brush is plastic and thin. I just don’t really like the application. It just seems to sit on top of the lashes and clump them together. Not great.

I really didn't get on with this mascara. The wand was very sharp, and hurt if you accidentally got too close to the lash line. It deposited way too much product at once, and because the wand was so spikey it was impossible to wipe off excess product onto a tissue. The formula was so wet it smudged all over my lid during application and transferred throughout the day. This mascara did give good volume, but it made me look like I had three spider leg lashes! Forget about using this for your lower lashes. In the end I couldn't use this mascara or pass it on, so it eventually got tossed when it expired

I really like this. It's the third one I've bought. It lengthens and volumises really well and if you're careful with it you can achieve good lash separation. It doesn't flake off and goes on nicely. Not my absolute favourite but a great backup!

This mascara volumises a lot, which is a good thing. However, I have never hated my lashes more while wearing it. My eyelashes stuck together until I had 5 spikes pointing out, which I have never experienced before. I can cope with a clumpy mascara if the clumpiness is kept to a minimum, but this was ridiculous. My lashes felt very sticky and downright disgusting. I could feel the product on my eyes, which I hate. The large applicator was a pain and I ended up having to clean up more than usual. Maybelline has some of the best mascaras on the market, but this one was a let down.

I quite like this mascara however i ran out of it really quickly which was strange. I wouldn't say it 'pushes up' my lashes but it makes them very long and voluminous which i really enjoyed. I found it transferred ever so slightly and it was quite hard to not get it on my lash line because of the shape of the wand but other than that i would repurchase. Finally i would recommend and am going to get myself a new one very soon.

I didn't like the wand and it left my lashes clumpy. i tried to fix it by going over the lashes and moving it about to separate the lashes but that didn't work. It does however push up my lashes. Not the best product maybelline have made. Disappointed.

Now, I don't hate this mascara and use it weekly as it gives good volume and quick coverage. However, it can clump easily. I make sure I wipe off too much excess product before I apply and it lasts well and you can add layers. I do like it on my lower lashes in particular.

I dislike the brush used for applying this mascara; personally, I prefer proper brush hairs rather than rubber, and therefore this product didn't suit me. It gave a clumpy and sticky finish which didn't give a nice appearance. It does give volume, however my lashes became very thick looking. Wouldn't recommend it.

Very disappointed. This product clumps up on the lashes if ore than one coat is applied, but without atleast two coats this mascara provides no length. It does however provide volume and does seem to last but I prefer my £1.99 mascaras from boots sorry maybelline

Waterproof-This stays all day. It gives volume,length and extreme black lashes. I do find because of the way I like my lashes I comb them but even without is beautiful. It's really tough to get off I you have the waterproof an oil based clenser is defiantly needed. The look fanned out and it doesn't clump. The wand is a bit big so you have to be super careful.

It is a good strong black colour. It does give the push up effect but when applying it clogs my eyelashes together, not separating them. I find the wand hard to use and it definitely has too much product on it in comparison to other wands.

It is a quite good mascara, but I find it can be really clumpy and quite hard to use. There seems too much product on the applicator. It does give lit and some volume, but I personally wouldn't by it again.

I was quite disappointed with this mascara. I thought it would be great as the packaging is very sleek and looks expensive but the actual product didn't live up to that. It applies a lot of product but clumps the lashes together awfully. It also smudges and flakes easily. However, I do quite like the wand because it's a little easier to get to the bottom lashes than some mascaras.

Truly the worst mascara I've tried for a while. Not buildable (as it claims), extremely slow to dry, smudges and flakes. It's innovative brush design does deliver a lot of product, but it clumps and does not separate fine lashes. Virtually unusable. In the bin!
