This mascara took too much care and time to apply. I found the formula wet and I had smudges under my eyes part way through the day. The brush was OK, but I had to apply so slowly so it looked right that it just took too long to get ready. I didn’t like how my lashes looked. They were spiky and thick and I just didn’t like the results. I won’t repurchase or recommend this mascara. I received this mascara free for testing from Influenster.
