My thoughts
In my opinion, it’s a wonderful everyday mascara. It does exactly what it says! It makes no volumizing claims so it’s definitely not for you if you’re expecting dramatic fuller lashes. Some days, I feel going au naturel to work or school. I only put this on along with a concealer and a lip tint. It makes my eyes look awake and I get many compliments on how fresh I look.

If I were to describe it in one word, I’d say ‘neat’. It gives my lashes the right definition without bunching them together which is what I like best about it. The end result I get is crisp, natural and fluttery lashes. It doesn’t add length on the first coat as I was expecting but I am not disappointed because it does lengthen on second coat which is fine by me.

The formula is nice. It’s neither dry nor too wet, doesn’t smudge and sets fairly quickly. Mine says ‘very black’ on it and it’s indeed a rich black. To me, the applicator it comes with is perfect. The bristles actually help separate and coat each lash individually. Also, it’s slender enough to reach lashes in the inner corner of my eyes. I normally apply two coats since I’ve got thin lashes. As previously mentioned, it gives minimum definition on the first coat so for maximum definition and length you should do at least two coats. I’ve been using it a whole lot these days and I haven’t noticed any flaking or smudging issues with it. It also holds the curl throughout the day.

Overall, I am a fan. I can’t emphasize enough how much I love the clump-free finish I get with this. Anybody looking for definition and some length is definitely going to love it. If you’re a volume lover, it’s not for you.

You might like it if…
  • You’re looking for definition and length
  • It makes your lashes look natural and feathery
  • You think the brush helps separate lashes
  • It doesn’t bunch lashes together
  • You expect flake/smudge-free application
You might not like it if…
  • You have thin stubby lashes and you expect volume
  • You expect dramatic lengthening
