ok, I tried this mascara a long time ago and hated it. recently I went on a clinique binge and decided to give it another go...I'm glad I did! they must have reformulated because it works much better now. The trick to making this work is to wipe off the brush before applying. I wish the hole it the top was smaller so you would get less excess product. It takes a tiny bit of curl out of my lashes, but that is a good thing for me as I curl them wayyyyy too up to my eyebrows :p I first curl my lashes, wipe the brush, apply one thin coat to both eyes, use a clean spoolie to seperate if necessary, then dip & wipe the brush again and apply coat #2, using the spoolie again to remove any clumps or stuck together lashes. Gives a lovely natural look with a bit of oomph. the color is a wonderful true black, it does not flake, and it does not smudge. I even slept in it the other day and I looked just as good when I got up as when I went to bed, though I had to wipe a stray black fleck or two off. definitly a keeper. gives similar but more natural and thick looking results as my covergirl lash blast. The clinique brush is much softer though...probably the softest mascara brush I have ever used. never irritates my eyes, feels wonderful to put on, and doesn't get any spots on my lids.
*update* This mascara also layers well, so if you need something a bit tougher to keep your curl or want more vavoom but still want to use this, do one coat of the other mascara, let it dry, then put a light coat of this over it. you will get the great black pigmentation and natural look with a bit more oomph. My fav right now is TheBalm mascara under this :)
