This is a surprisingly awesome mascara. I've been looking and looking and looking for an inexpensive mascara that is both washable and good at holding a curl and I think I've found it :) The packaging is simple and utilitarian and the brush is nothing extraordinary. The formula is on the dry side (which I normally detest--dry mascaras are more natural-looking but are worse at holding a curl and tend to smear more) and I think the tube could use a better 'wiper' thing inside (or a narrower opening) because I always have to scrape off the excess on the brush onto the rim and that can get messy after awhile. This mascara has all these strikes against it, which is why I'm so surprised that I like it so much. It volumizes and lengthens my lashes by quite a bit. Depending on how much I apply, this can go from natural to dramatic in a few strokes. It does clump, but ladies, if you haven't gotten yourselves a metal lashcomb yet, then there's no hope for you in the mascara world. This does not dry too stiffly, but it somehow holds my curl all day (if it's not very humid). It is a bit difficult to get off at night (I actually had to use a separate makeup remover) but it's not as bad as a waterproof mascara, obviously, or my Maybelline Lash Stylist (love, but it can be so tough to remove). No flaking or smearing either. And this is so cheap! Love!
ETA: I've only had this for a few weeks and it's already gotten all thick and clumpy. It's harder to work with now and the results aren't as good. Annoying! Knocked off a lippie and will not repurchase.
