I’m constantly on the hunt for a mascara that doesn’t end up making me have black raccoon under eyes or gritty flakes under my eyes and I finally found it! I have dozens of mascaras that have only been used a couple of times because they failed! I thought I would try this one because at $7.00 who cares if I try it once and bin it right? It’s got a great bright purple tube and I’m a sucker for bright packaging. I go for waterproof mascara these days because people have recommended that for less smudge. The brush is this and tiny which I loved because it just made it so easy to coat my lashes not my whole face. I wouldn’t say it was super lengthening but I have reasonable length lashes anyway. It only takes 1 coat, maybe more would lengthen but I don’t feel confident in super dramatic eyelashes/makeup. No raccoon eyes at all, even after an afternoon nap! There is a downside though - the formula is super wet so you need to be super careful to let it dry properly or you might blink it all over the eye area! All in all though I really love this product!
