I've always used the expensive products (MAC, Lorac, Laura Mercier, Stila, etc.) and it doesn't matter if the product said "Oil Free", I still had TERRIBLE skin and an hour after I finished my makeup, I was shiny. I've been using this for 5 days (I ran out of my MAC Studio Fix and I've had this for a while) and already, my skin is soft, clear, and NOT OILY. I used to have acne bumps all over my face; blackheads; whiteheads; THE WHOLE DEAL, and it's ALL gone. Even if I put my makeup on at 6:20am, by 2:30pm, I'm not oily. And this has great coverage too! For $5, this definitely beats MAC's Studio Fix Plus Foundation for $30. Great buy, great results, I'm not switching back!
When I came on here to review the product, I was shocked at all the bad reviews given for it... I've tried over 50 different mascaras and this one always has me coming back to it. I have naturally long, voluminous lashes that look fake with or without mascara (I only use it because I'm a blonde). This mascara always gives me great definition and gets my lashes all the way to the tip. It never clumps on me, flakes, or smudges and it gives my lashes a pretty curl up without using an eyelash curler. Overall, this mascara is one of my favorites.

So I naturally have very long (as in past my eyebrows) lashes, but they are very thin so this adds great volume and no clumping for me! But After about 12-20 hours of having it on, it bothers me if I'm wearing contacts and then it gets sticky and icky. But it's great for swimming because it stays on and never clumps; it also never gives you "raccoon eyes". Overall, this is a great product if you have naturally long lashes.
