I hated this product. It was far to wet and clumpy. It ended up streaking all over my eye lids and then was hard to remove. Will not repurchase!

I have used this product and threw it out after a few uses! This mascara is very clumpy and really not easy to use!. I though the "spoon" was innovative but definitely not user friendly. It is also messy when applying it.

This is by far my favorite mascara and that is saying something.

I was never fond of mascaras until I realised it was my own user error. Recently, I ventured into trying some and bought a couple of used ones for cheap. This was the only one that gave me the best results. My lashes are fine and stick straight but slightly long. Wearing this, I look like I have natural long lashes. LOVE!

I only used 1 coat with the wider-side of the brush to lengthen (I don't see volume) then use the narrower-side to separate because I just want it to look perfect. The mascara itself does not clump on me but I just like to run my lash comb through to further define and separate my lashes. My lashes also feel quite soft and not at all 'crispy'.
I cannot confirm how well it holds the curl because my hooded lids will push down the tops of my lashes. I'm using the waterproof version which seems to be a little difficult to remove even with an oil. At the rate I'm using, it should last me for quite some time. =)

+ lengthens and separates
+ no clumps and not 'crispy'
+ waterproof (lasted through a long shower)
- difficult to remove
- not easily available where I am

Did I say how much I love this?

not bad, not great. best for ppl who have a little volume. doe lengthen in my opinion, but doesn't volumize as much as I'd hoped.

At first, I hated this mascara. It was wet, clumpy and didn't do anything for my lashes. However, after I let the formula dry out for awhile, it was amazing. it kept my lashes curled (no mascara has done that before), it didn't budge and it gave overall good volume and length.

Give this mascara a chance to dry out and then give it a try! :)

- Major volume and length that somehow manages to look fairly natural. I wouldn't say that this gives a false lash effect, but it certainly makes my lashes huge.
- No clumping and the brush makes for easy application
- No heavy smell
- Holds curl very well

- Waterproof version is difficult to remove, even with makeup remover (I still haven't tried non-waterproof yet)
- Flakes, but just slightly. Nothing that I can't remove with my fingers.

Overall, it's really a great product. If you're expecting to truly have the look of false lashes, you will be disappointed, but I do have to say that it's definitely a great volume/length mascara and without having to put on a hundred coats.
