I like this mascara a lot. It's not perfect, but pretty good. I have green eyes and pale skin so I sometimes want something to make the green stand out a bit, ideally without making me look like I have allergies. This is more a browned red, or a wine-red-purple that leans dark instead of bright. The pros: The color is darker, and not super red. It veers close to a deep brown, so it's not garish. It is buildable. One coat looks natural, but a few more and you get more impact. It doesn't run. I've worn it to the gym and haven't experienced any streaking. It washes off easily. The cons: Maybe a tiny bit steep in price for a so-called drugstore product. (Fortunately there are sales) It takes a lot of layers to get real drama and volume. It can get flaky at times (with more layers). With a coupon and sale I got this mascara for something like $4.60, which is a good deal. For that price it's worth it, and I'd consider getting more, since it satisfies a jones for a more colorful mascara. Since my lashes are a light brown color naturally, I get some nice, but subtle color. I like it enough that I'd consider buying another tube down the line, preferably on sale.
