I prefer this mascara over the other one with the purple lettering. I did one eye with one and my other eye with this one.
Although the brush is a bit big, it leaves the end of your lashes more fluttery compared to the other item. It also takes a lot less applications, and it comes out just as dark.
For the value, it's a great buy. You'll find other mascara's more expensive that don't do as good as a job.
I actually liked this mascara- and liked it much better than the regular jordana volume mascara. The reason it gets a four though is because its not waterproof and i have to use it in conjunction with a waterproof mascara to set the curl. This mascara has a much larger brush, so if you have small eyes or really short lashes it may not work well to apply and might smudge on eyelids or something. Pulling the wand out the stopper seemed to hold back enough mascara so it's not clumpy. The regular jordana volume mascara is HORRIBLE with the clumps for me since it seems to have no stopper and I can't wipe enough to prevent clumps. I use maybelline full n soft, lash discovery or cover girl lash exact ( all waterproof) to set the curl and then sweep this Jordana mascara with the green cap and I have longer and thicker lashes. It lasts through a work day, won't smudge (which is a big issue for me) and won't flake during my work day! I've tried so so so many mascaras and most smudge. The price is nice, it won't make my straight lashes fall if I set the curl with a wp mascara first...nice! I will repurchase!
this is for the one with the green cap. i found this mascara to be ok. the brush (normal non-plastic bristles) is huge and the wand is bent at a slight angle to facilitate easier application. the formula is more on the wet side and without a doubt clumpy. you can actually see clumps / globs of mascara on the wand when you pull it out. wiping it on a tissue is almost always a must. for me, this did add "volume" to my lashes by coating every lash i had (and sometimes clumping a few together to create the thicker look). it added no length and definitely didn't separate my lashes. it held a curl decently. the formula felt a little "mousse-y" to me... fairly lightweight for the amount of product it deposits. multiple swipes (as in more than 1) and / or coats produced tiny "balls" of product on my lashes despite the initial wipe down of the wand. it did layer easily (despite the balls). it also smudged a little on me after a few hours. my biggest issue was that i found it visibly flaked all around my eye area randomly (sometimes did, sometimes didn't) when humid. overall, eh, i'm not terribly impressed, though i did like this better than the pink capped [supposedly] lengthening mascara. personally, i would stick with the original best lash extreme mascara from jordana. overall, i would give it a 2.5 since i would use it over having no mascara on at all... but i did end up returning this one to the store as well.
