The brush is very interesting. It’s a very large, cone shape… wider at one end. I do really like this shape of brush, because I always apply my mascara so that the wide end is toward my outer lashes.
The size of the brush took me a while to get used to. It’s so large, that my first few applications were super messy! Thank goodness for Q-tips, eh? ;)
The photos below show mascara on my right eye lashes, so you can compare them to my nakey lashes. :) I applied several coats on the right lashes, as I normally would wear this mascara. As you can see, this is a pretty dramatic mascara. I like my lashes to be as thick and long as possible!
This mascara is very thickening and volumizing and it has a wet formula. Personally, I tend to favor more dry mascaras, so I didn’t really care for this mascara the first few times I wore it. After it dried out a little, I liked this mascara a lot more!
A downside is, this mascara is clump city, so you don’t want to be without a lash comb (unless you love clumpy mascara…).
I discovered part way through using this product that I really enjoy wearing under another mascara. I’ve heard lots of girls talk about layering mascara, and I always thought that was silly. It just seemed like too much work to me. BUT, after I tried layering… I understood why. I’m not saying you have to go out and buy two mascaras at a time… but if you happen to be like me, and you have more than one open at a time, why not try wearing them together? Since this one was clumpy for me, I layered a lengthening/defining mascara over the top (Almay Get up and Grow Mascara) and it worked perfectly.
I didn’t notice any flaking or smudging with this mascara… Overall, I am torn as to whether or not I would recommend this product. If you like wet, dramatic mascara, and you don’t have a tight budget, then this mascara is worth trying out. If you’re like me, and you’re hesitant to spend a lot on mascara, and you like dry formulas, I think you could pass on this one.
What is your favorite mascara? Do you like wet or dry formulas more?
