I adore this mascara. The wand took awhile to get used to at first, but after a time or two, I got the hang of it. Not sure if it's the mascara or the wand, but this really lengthens my lashes quite nicely. I never, EVER, get clumps from this mascara, and this is the first mascara in as far back as I can remember that I can dare to not use the waterproof formula and still be confident in a great set of lashes all day.
I've been using this color lipslick for years now. I think it's actually called 'Starlet' now. Anyway, I do truly love it. I always have at least one in my purse, one in my make up bag, and one in the pocket of whatever jacket I'm wearing (in the winter time, obviously). I use this for my 'everyday' look, but i find that I really love it for a night out when worn with dark smoky eyes...it really adds to the effect. I do agree with the others...if my lips are flaky or chapped at all, it shows, so i steer clear of it then. Although, I've recently found that by topping off my DuWop Lip Venom with this, anytype of flakiness, etc is eliminated and it also makes the 'color' even lighter, yet seems to repel the shimmer, at least more than normal. Does work great over lip plumpers. Try it if you haven't!
