If you’re one of the few who hasn’t actually used this mascara, you most likely recognize the familiar neon pink and lime green tube. After 40+ years on the market, it’s still the classic that we come back to time and time again. If you want an affordable mascara that gets the job done well, look no further.
Flakes, smudges, and clumps—three things that can ruin a perfectly good lash look. If you’re looking for a way to avoid all three, we got you. This formula softens and builds while making sure your mascara stays where you want it: on your lashes.
If you’re looking for a mascara that gets the job done in one swipe, you’ve come to the right place. Its creamy, full-bodied texture means that you’re one stroke away from longer, fuller lashes.

Giorgio Armani’s Black Ecstasy mascara delivers just that with a multi-directional brush that coats every lash with 4 patented waxes with volume, length, and curl—in one swipe. That’s what we call a multi-tasker.
To get the larger than life results, you have to join forces.

This mascara is gonna make you believe in miracles, or superhero powers at the very least. Yep, this game-changing formula is clinically proven to stretch and thicken your lashes. Why?
