LOVE IT...Love it....Paired with Benefits They're Real!...I put this only to my lashes and it didn't smudge or clump and it made my lashes really long and straight but, how I got around that was to curl the wand up in a rolling motion which then gave my eyelashes curl, I let it dry, then I went back in with my favorite mascara and bam no joke it looked like I had on fake lashes.

I felt like it delivered in so many ways that I knew it had earned a place in my daily routine."—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder
