Who doesn't love a magazine freebie? I can not resist them, that's for sure! That's exactly how I came across this mascara, quite some time ago. I put it in my stash and forgot about it until recently. The first few uses I thought it was already too old as it seemed quite dry. I almost gave up on it but it loosened up, delivering soft, fluttery lashes. It has a fairly standard bristle style wand which I found easy to manoeuvre. It stayed put all day yet was easy to remove at night. I wouldn't say that the mascara curled by lashes on its own as I always use an eyelash curler first anyway.
This is a good everyday mascara that I would use again. I just need to get through the rest of my stash first.
