I know my incredibly low rating might come as a shock to some of you, but trust that I have a good reason! I love the way this mascara is able to separate & add tons of volume. No qualms there. I, however, am horrified at the amount of eyelashes I have lost after using this mascara. The wand grips onto lashes with sharp plastic bristles. These bristles have the ability to tear out your lashes if you are not careful. The eyelash loss is also due to the fact that this mascara simply does not come off without extensive effort with some makeup remover. Having to rub at your eyes every night is a chore. When lashes are lost in the process, this chore becomes that much more arduous. Lastly, this mascara never dries fully. It stays tacky. This is terrible because if I take a nap during the day or accidentally rub or touch my eyes, my lashes will all stick together and form one or two big eyelash clumps. Once this happens, the mascara is essentially a glue holding them all together, making them more likely to fall out due to the tension this creates at the roots of the lashes. I saw lashes on the brush after every use. It was disheartening, but I thought maybe I was losing them naturally. This was not the case. My lashes -- which were once thick, full, and long on their own -- are now noticeably sparser. I wish I had never used this mascara.
