This mascara is amazing if you coat your lashes once with a normal mascara ...then use this mascara as a second and or third coating your lashes will be transformed it almost looks like you have falsies on...my one complaint is that the tube opening is so wide that the mascara wand is filled with unnecessary amounts of mascara and you don't want to waist it they need to figure out how to filter the amount coming out when you pull the wand if you are skilled you can manage...Best mascara I've ever used, I'm not a big makup user tbh I usually only wear mascara and the occasional lip products but because of that when I'm looking for a mascara I want something dramatic, bold and lengthening this mascara exceeds that no clumps all day perfect wear no smudging best purchase will be buying more in the future

I switched from using loreal carbon black mascara for many years as my hg mascara, the ingredients in this mascara are so much better, it's vegan , and makes my lashes look twice as long , very easily buildable , make my lashes look like I'm wearing falsies sometimes and I swear my lashes grow in nicer than they ever have , it smudges a tiny bit on a busy day but I've never had a mascara that didn't as I get pretty oily...Great mascara (no clumps and buildable) but after a couple of hours, I can see small mascara ink stains under my eyes from the bottom lash application and sometimes when I apply it to my upper lashes, some of the formula ends on my lash line and that can be annoying if you're going for a "no liner" look

I quite enjoy it...One thing about the product is that the mascara formula is a bit too thick, it goes one well and easily, it does a great job at both creating volume and length, but a little of the product goes a LONG way, you really have to scrape a good bit of it off on the rim of the tube, or use a tissue to get the excess off...I've lash extensions and it's really hard to find a mascara for my bottom lashes that provides just as much volume as my top ones have-I honestly quit buying them because none measured up, but after receiving this one for free I gave it a shot

My holy grail :)...I think that for people who are finding it smudges that may be because their eyes water a lot or they are rubbing their eyes without realizing it - in both cases I think they might try a waterproof mascara - when I have allergies a little of both those things happen and layering a coat of waterproof mascara over top helps my watery eyes not make it leak but on a normal day I could keep this on day and night and it wouldn't smudge...this product was one of a few I purchased for my best friend as a gift & I had borrowed it once after giving it to her and after everything my eyelashes have been through that have become very short and theres not a lot of them left so its hard to find a good mascara without wearing falsies but this one works wonders
