This brush has natural, tightly packed bristles. The shape is pretty different, because the whole length of the brush is the same thickness. I didn’t have any problems with application, but this wasn’t anything special either.
This mascara was nice and lengthening and separating. It’s very build-able… at first it’s a bit wet but it is also pretty clump-free! I didn’t have any problems with flaking, but the odd thing was, I did notice some smudging. The only time it did smudge was when I didn’t have any other eye makeup on. Strange, isn’t it? As long as I had eye shadow on, I didn’t have any problems with smudging… I am not sure why.
My favorite way to use this mascara is to layer it over a volumizing one. This one adds just the right touch of length and definition.
As this started drying out, it got a lot more clumpy, so application was not as nice for me.
For the photos below, I applied the mascara only to my right eye (your left) so you could compare those lashes to my nakey ones. :)
Well, I don’t love or hate this mascara. It was nice, but I don’t think I will repurchase it. I did love layering with this one, but there are other mascaras out there that I love on their own. :)
Questions or comments? I’d love to hear from you!!
Thanks for reading!
