I've been using this mascara for a week now and I really like it. Nice volume, lengthening and lasting properties. No smudging, flaking or clumping and it holds a curl well, which is very important to me because my lashes are stick straight and point downwards. I really love the color of the tube, however, it is a bit big. Not overly big, definitely won't bother me, but like another reviewer said, it's kind of awkward. For those of you mascara junkies (like myself) it's certainly worth a try.
