I figured I’d try this mascara since it had a brown shade, and actual brown (not black brown) mascaras are hard to find at the drugstore. I’m not a fan but it’s okay, I’d even go as far as to say it’s growing on me. The color (I bought ‘deep cocoa’) is what I’d consider a standard brown mascara shade. The wand is tapered with a slightly pointy end, which means it tends to get a buildup of product at the tip, even after I wipe off the excess it still tends to apply thicker on the inner lashes which isn’t preferable. The formula is wetter than I’m used to, so I find it’s alright for when I want a more dramatic look as it kind of sticks my lashes together a bit more than drier formulas tend to. Since I do prefer a fluffier and more natural look most days I don’t plan on buying this again. But since I don’t like spending money on makeup I’m still using it but just brushing through it with a clean l’oreal voluminous brush afterwards. Now that I’m getting the hang of applying it it’s not bad, and I think it has the potential to improve as it dries out a bit lol. Additionally, the tube is unnecessarily huge. It’s cute, I like how the plastic feels, and I like how when you close it the darker edge of the tube always lines up perfectly, I find it very satisfying. But why is it so big? I like to store my mascaras and liners in a cup and this jerk doesn’t fit, it sucks to travel with too with how much space it takes up. It came in a box and I expected it to be smaller!
