Your intermediary volumising mascara
This works well at volumising, considering it is a pharmacy brand, but then Maybelline do come through with affordable and good quality make up. The only thing hindering a 5 star rating for this mascara was the tiny beads of mascara that would form on the ends of my lashes, although you can solve this by quickly combing through with a lash comb.
It's a little more work, but it's a good mascara for everyday use, or if you're not going anywhere spectacular and still want to look nice.

The first time I used this mascara, it did not do anything for my lashes. It didn't hold a curl or make my lashes any more amazing looking. However, I tried it a second time and it amazingly kept a curl for the whole day! And my lashes are pretty much stick straight, so any mascara that can hold a curl is an investment for me. Not only that, but my lashes did look a lot thicker and lovelier :)

This mascara is perfect for me! There were hardly any clumps and it lengthened my eyelashes. This is definetly a must have!

Was alright at volumizing, did lengthen though, but however it was just too clumpy to work with. Maybe if it dried out a bit, I'd like it.

It does what a mascara should do,
I'm so tired of all the mascara ad's using false lashes to advertise a product that bears no resemblence to the photo. At least with this one, the results are worth the small outlay. No mascara on the planet will make your lashes look like the photo's so just settle for one that enhances without clumping, flaking or hefty price tags. If you want a good quality mascara without the hype or the price tag then this is it. For under $20 it can't be beat. It colours, lengthens and thickens a little without clumps. I find the big bushy brush a bit weird after using the little brushes but it does coat and seperate each lash very well. I got no flaking from this mascara and it's cheap enough that you can throw away the old tube each month. Proof that yet again, a good basic product can outperform a much more expensive one. I will gladly repurchase this mascara.
Don't expect this tube to last 6 months. All mascara's dry out so it pays to just toss the tube at the end of each month and repurchase. For under $20 (often as low as $15 in the supermarket or chemists) you can definately afford it.
Someone looking for a good all round mascara for daily use. The price and performance are spot on. You won't regret this purchase.

One of the best mascaras everr!!
I was very excited about using this mascara and I wasnt disappointed. It gave my eyelashes amazing length with minimal clumps and they just keep getting longer the more you apply. I did thicken and darekn my lashes when applied but it seemed to give more length thna volume. Definitely would buy it again.

Great for length and volume
I use this mascara in the waterproof version. I love how it makes my lashes look so long. I always get compliments when i where this mascara. Although i do find it quite sticky and it tends to make my lashes stick together, but other than that, a great product

Definitely a convert
I've been a loyal maxfactor mascara user ever since they released their first masterpiece mascara (upgrading slowly up to the false lash effect mascara). But after seeing this on a friend and then trying her's myself i rushed out and bought it. I used to not like a new mascara until about a week in when the product had thickened up a bit but this one was amazing right from the start.
I have very short lashes, dark at the base with blonde ends, and fairly curly. I found this worked great at lengthening my lashes, it didnt do a huge amount of thickening but I've found that if my lashes look too thick then they look shorter.

I have to say, Im really pleased with this mascara. Having thin, light lashes, they coated and separated the lashes PERFECTLY - my lashes look completely natural! The mascara added SO MUCH LENGTH to my lashes! I can't get over how long they are!
My only problem is that it does not do much to volumize - but I think I can compensate that for the amazing length it creates
I would coat the lashes abotu 4 times, depending on the length you want/
Ideal for any lash type.
