I have mixed feelings about this, but in the end, it does the one thing that makes any mascara a no for me: Makes me look like a panda. On application, it separates beautifully. It didn't really thicken much. It gave me a pretty, fluttery look. No clumping at all. I found the brush easy to work with. But I wore it to go shopping, and after just a few hours, I looked in the mirror and realized I looked like I was out all night drinking and went home and slept in my makeup. I just had the really bad panda-eye look. That's why I never, ever wear a new mascara to work to test it out for the first wear. So it's a pass for me. If you are a person who doesn't have the panda problem (this is a very common problem for me, and there are few mascaras that I can wear successfully), it's worth a try. It's not a bad mascara. It's just bad for me.
