i don't have terribly strong feelings about this mascara. the formula isn't spectacular, but it is somewhat buildable and doesn't smear on me. in fact, i think this mascara's only real problem is its wand - i absolutely hate the shape of it, and these siliconey-plasticky type brushes are always so stabby to me (seriously, who invented these wands?? and why do brands keep using them???). i think the formula would benefit from being applied from a wand more similar in shape to the one BTS uses, or at least it would for my particular eye shape.
i really love how easy the product is to wash off at the end of the day - i feel like this isn't something mentioned in a lot of reviews, but i've tried several formulas at this point that despite not being advertised as waterproof, were, in fact, waterproof, and took two days to finally wash off completely. i hate waterproof formulas as all the tugging and rubbing they require to remove causes a lot of eyelash loss for me.
but honestly i threw this out after two months. partly because of the color - i do like brown, but only for my bottom lashes, and this wand is far too big to be a lower-lash-exclusive mascara - but mainly because the brush drives me crazy. it's SO stabby and the bristles are so short you don't really get a lot of product off onto your lashes during application. if it made my lashes look exceptional i'd deal with the wand, but the way the wand is now, i wouldn't repurchase.
