Generally I wouldn't want to get 2 black mascaras at the same time because they don't last and I was looking for a different color. Grocery stores usually don't have a good selection of these mascaras, but I found the original pink-and-green Maybelline in blue. Frankly, without being exceptional, this mascara IS better than many expensive one... Kudos to Maybelline for keeping their flagship product on the market no matter how many "new" miracles they come up with. It must have loyal customers!
yup! Im one of them!

Nope no side effects here! I think side effects are the rare exception as opposed to the norm, at least for me! And I wear contacts and have fairly sensitive eyes, but of course apply Latisse at night after taking them out and have no issues.

I happened to read about it in a magazine today. Some of the side effects occur in 4% of the user, which in my book is a pretty healthy percentage. There are numerous other potential side effects... It's no different than Accutane, even though Accutane is probably a winner with about 2 pages of side effects. I can't speak for others, but I'd rather live with so-and-so skin and lashes than use any of those "miracles"! I have another rule - never touch anything not recommended for pregnant women.

I loved Dior Maximeyes, but they discontinued it. (Dior Show is overrated. It's not bad, but I'm not impressed.)

Right now my go-to is Maybelline Full and Soft.

I've tried most of the mascaras mentioned in this thread and either I hated the brush (I'm picky about my brushes) or the formula just didn't work well on me.

The brush on DiorShow is what really turned me off that product. It's way too big.

Same here. It's way too awkward. I felt Maximeyes formula was way better and the brush was a better size. It amazes me all the press DiorShow got/gets and how Maximeyes didn't get any considering it was better.

That's what I love about it.
I have large eyes, and a small brush takes forever to coat my lashes. The big brush means I can be done in a few swipes.

It is huge! I really like the little sample mascaras.

Btw, that magenta-color Maybelline I bought last week is pretty decent so far. I've bought the green one before. This one is volumizing, which I normally don't buy, but it does lengthen and curl some as well... Overall, it's OK.

For me hands down the best mascara is Loreal Voluminous. It doesn't smudge or flake and it makes my lashes long and thick. I've tried all kinds of mascara that claim to be flake proof but none are as good as Voluminous. A close runner-up is L'Oreal Bare Naturale in Barely Black which I had picked up from a shopping guide recommendation.
