This mascara is great but I would never buy it. That's odd. Let me explain. My biggest problem with my eyelashes is volume. They are long enough and they have a natural curl (don't hate) but there aren't many of them. This mascara has the comb-like brush and goes on very nicely. It gives a lot of length and definition. Unfortunately, it doesn't really plump them up. It also looks super dark. That surprises me. I usually think black is black. Well, somehow this black is black-er. It doesn't smudge and, they sell the trial size online for $10. I wish more companies did this. One thing I am discovering about mascara is that 3 months is the max time you should use the same tube. A trial size is really all you need. So, if you are looking to take your lashes to great lengths, give this a try!
