I purchased this mascara when I was looking for something to replace a Dior mascara that I liked but didn't love. It was in a display recommending mascaras for adding volume. I liked the packaging - sleek and solid so it won't crack bouncing around in my makeup bag. As well, I thought that if it was in a special display it must work as promised. I should know better by now, but I am the kind of consumer marketers love.
The first tube I purchased gave great volume, but as a previous reviewer has noted, it quickly got clumpy. This required wiping off the wand and being quite careful. It stayed put for more than 11 hrs and took a little work to remove at the end of the day.
When my daughter "borrowed" the first tube, I purchased another one because I loved the volume and wanted to give it a second chance. I have had the second tube only a short time, but it seems to be clump free so far.
I love this mascara and the only reason it didn't get five lippies, but I did buy it again, and until I get the urge to wander around the makeup section and something catches my eye,I will stick with it (I am rarely faithful to a product forever - I just can't resist a good salesperson, good advertising and good packaging!)
