Good but not great
I found this to be a pretty good mascara. It lengthened my lashes well, didn't clump too much and wasn't particularly messy. The price was also very affordable. I didn't really notice any strong smells personally, so that didn't bother me. I found the formula to be neither very wet nor very dry - I personally prefer slightly more wet formulas but others may disagree. It's a tubing formula, and I found that it stayed on but removed quite easily with a bit of makeup remover or just water.
In regards to downsides, I found that this mascara didn't provide much volume - it's a much more natural look, and I didn't feel that it provided nearly as much curl as it claims. I also prefer bristle brushes to this silicone one.
Use a curler - the mascara doesn't provide as much curl as it claims, so you'd still need to use an eyelash curler unless you have naturally curled eyelashes.

Cheap & Amazing!
I picked this up on sale at Priceline so to me it was even more of a bargain and I could not be happier with my purchase!
Packaging is 'killer' like the name would suggest: sexy, sleek and easy to hold. I prefer this slimline shape to the chunkier mascaras that take up loads of space in your makeup bag, especially if you're a traveller because this product is virtually weightless.
Killer Curves has a barely noticeable scent that is not obtrusive in any way. It has a medium consistency that builds well without clumping or looking messy and the wand makes it easy to elongate even the shortest of lashes. This product creates great length and volume on its own or even teamed up with another mascara.
I have a problem with most mascaras transferring and leaving black pigment on my under eye area and after a full day or nights wear, Killer Curves had no transfer what so ever. Even better, it is super easy to remove with an eye make up remover. It glides off without all the painful and bothersome scrubbing that I need with my other mascaras.
Build product up in a zigzag pull motion. I also like to give my lashes one coat from the top side for extra darkness.
Anyone and everyone as this product is amazing, it did not irritate my eyes, leave dark residue and best of all it's under $15!

love this mascara
I use this mascara before i use my maybeline mascara, because it separates my lashes and makes them super long, that way when i put my maybeline mascara on, it doesn't get clumpy and is ridiculously long. this product comes in a nice pink package that is easy to use. i love the wand as it it is big making it even easier to use.

Perfect everyday mascara
I'm just about to finish my second tube of this and will quite happily repurchase. I have quite oily lids and I find that tubing formulas, such as this, are the only ones that stay all day with no smudging or flaking. It's almost impossible to find tubing mascaras at a reasonable price so I was very happy when I found this.
If you want dramatic volume, this is not the mascara for you. I find I get good lengthening, but minimal volume from this formula. I'm happy with it for an everyday look but this is not what I use for an evening out.
I did find that at first, this mascara smelled quite chemically, and mdd my eyes sting. After the first couple of days though, this completely disappeared.
For an everyday mascara though, I couldn't be happier. I get perfectly defined lashes, no clumping, smudging or flaking, and it's incredibly easy to remove - just warm water!
I find that this mascara can clump if you don't wiggle the brush as you apply.

Love hate relationship
At first I loved this, the brush was thin and I was impressed with how my lashes looked. Unfortunately I feel as if it clumped my lashes together (which I hate) I sometimes love it, especially when I feel like going for the fake lashes look I will use this and team it with another mascara. Which is usually the only time that I now where this. Don't think I will repurchase this.

Lengthening without volume
Great mascara for lengthening but does not give any volume at all. Easy to remove but mascara flaked off onto cheeks during the day and the tube dried out very quickly compared to other mascara brands. Formula is on the dryer/clumpier side. OK mascara, wouldn't repurchase
Apply 2-3 coats while wiggling brush to remove clumps that will flake off during day.
Anyone looking for a cheap lengthening mascara.

Great for the price point
I find this mascara to be great for lengthening and thickening. It's a tubing formula so doesn't flake or smudge on me but is still easy to remove. It does clump a bit if I try to layer it up, but all on all I think it would be hard to beat the performance of this for the price.

Great mascara for lengthening
Found this mascara to be good for lengthening lashes. Gets clumpy after being opened for a month. Easy to remove but can flake onto face through out the day.
Lengthening, easy to remove

This mascara is very clumpy and it does not hold a curl at all, so I don't know why it's called Killer Curves. The smell is unpleasant and the formula does not add much volume. The packaging is nice but that's it.

Holy Grail Mascara
I find this mascara is comparable to other high end tubular mascaras like Clinique and Eyeko without the high price tag. It is excellent if you want lengthening and curling but not volume. I use one coat for a natural wide eyed look, two coats for a night out. It doesn't smudge or flake and is easily removed with warm water in the shower. The formula is on the wet side but doesn't try up too quickly and the wand is flexible rubber. It is exactly what I look for in a mascara. I will continue to repurchase.
