This mascara does stay on really well, which is normally a big problem for me, and it does really separate the lashes, but, it doesn't actually thicken them much. I normally like to really wiggle...

Overall I'm liking this mascara. I used to be a Maybelline/L'oreal mascara girl (imo they have the best mascaras available at this price point. Waterproof Turbo Volume Express was a former HG.)...

Got this at a ridiculously low price ($.19 for 2 pack) so I figured I had nothing to lose trying it out. At first I was very impressed with it because it gave my lashes volume just like my HG...
