A total crappy mascara that flakes 30 minutes after application. Expensive and totally overrated.
I'm so perplexed by this mascara... It comes in a sleek silvery tube and the brush is smallish, cylindric, with very fine short bristles. There are two shades, black and brown. The formula is liquid, wet but viscous enough, and it dries down to stiff, so I’m guessing it would hold a curl. When applied carefully, it provides lovely volume yet nothing too dramatic, and stays on all day with no clumping or smudging. But it can be so hard to work with!
First of all, the opening on mine should be much smaller – the brush is nearly dripping with paint. I solved the problem by wiping the wand almost every time before use or by pressing it against the opening, so one side would come out “cleaner”. Second, this product is supposed to “enhance volume” in one swipe. Well, after the second or third coat it definitely starts to clump and flake on me. Third, you need to apply this mascara as gently as possible with a steady hand. Fourth, it’s very small (only 0.17 fl.oz. = 5 ml), expensive, quite difficult to remove and it cost me some lashes. All in all, I believe in mascara working for me not me doing all the work for mascara.
