This mascara is great for volumising your lashes. No clumping, no flaking, no smudging and defines and separates each eyelash. It also lengthens and holds a curl quite well if you use curlers beforehand. Overall pretty much everything i want in a mascara thank you l'oreal!!!

This mascara has a very good wand and formula. I have downwards-pointing lashes and use a lash curler, and when I use this mascara it holds the curl and has a visible effect from a distance, compared to cheaper alternatives. However, I found it does clump a little sometimes, and sometimes makes my lashes stick together rather than spreading out to create volume, it could also be more lengthening.

Not that impressed with this product. Wears heavy and I find it weighs my lashes down. The brush is medium sized nor too fat. If u want curly lashes u have to curl like cray before hand to get the effect. I also curl after applying! Won't be buying again, but fair play it lasts a while

This mascara is similar to roller lash from benefit . I preferred it as a base mascara as it holds the curl then I used a volumizing mascara over the top. Does not build enough for me to use alone.

I really like this mascara as it does a good job of lifting my eyelashes and giving them a solid black colouring. I didn't see this mascara adding much length to my lashes, but I do recommend it if you want a natural looking curl to your eyelashes. The wand has a nice curve which makes it easy to get a hold on all my lashes. Definitely a good mascara!!

I really like how easy this mascara is. The wand is curved to help lift and it's easy to layer without clumping. I don't find this mascara adding much length or volume to my lashes but it gives a great curl just like it says on the packaging!

I love this mascara, the formula is very black, lasts well and the waterproof one doesn't smudge at all. It makes my lashes look full, thick and long, but still very natural and not clumpy at all, very separated. It doesn't hold a curl brilliantly, but also not awfully. I love that they have separate brushes for the top and bottom sets, v helpful - also good price.

Mixed review because the end for your top lashes i really hate, it does nothing for holding a curl and that's what i really need since my lashes are so straight, however the thinner end for bottom lashes is brilliant! It's the only mascara that i can use on my bottom lashes without any transfer because it dries incredibly fast. I would re-purchase for that reason alone.

I've been on the lookout for a good mascara for a long time. My lashes are long and straight. I only use a couple of swipes of this mascara, as the formula is quite thick, and it makes my lashes look curled and keeps then separated. It is quite difficult to remove but it doesn't rub off underneath my eyes during the day. Works for day time and can be built up for night time.
