My mom always told me I was fickle and I guess she was right. One day I am singing the praises of Make Up For Ever and three days later...well, not so much. This mascara has a spiral brush with medium thickness. I found that it clumped my eyelashes together somewhat. It gave it a spiky, dramatic look. That might be ok if you are on stage but not great for every day wear. In addition to black and brown, it comes in green, purple and blue (put them altogether for that sexy bruised look). However, for $22 I think you can do a lot better.
