I'm convinced there is probably no perfect, HG mascara for EVERY person, since lash length and thickness often help determine the outcome of the final look. That said, I am a fan of L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black, since it delivers on more than one level. I have long, fairly dark lashes, but since they aren't too thick, they could use some volume. This mascara helps increase volume and decent amount of length without making my lashes clump up or stick together too much- if I over apply, I simply go through with a metal lash comb. I also like the consistency- wet enough to apply smoothly, but not so much that it's runny and difficulty to layer. I find that it does not dry out quickly, and I use it pretty much every day. Lash separation is pretty good, so I can get a nice fanned out look, as long as a take care when applying. I usually apply over essence lash primer (which I've reviewed), and they go well together for a final, eye-popping look; since it is very dark, it does stand out, but in a good way. I find that I do not have to struggle with removing with a foaming face wash, which is a big plus, since it doesn't contribute to excess lash loss. I have repurchased before, and will continue to do so.
