            This mascara is awful! I'm glad I only bought the small tube instead of paying for the large one because this was a complete waste of money! All this mascara did was make my lashes sticky and clumpy. I get much better results with my drug store mascaras that are >$10 a tube.

            My lashes are naturally long so I was looking for volume and definition and this mascara does provide that. Downside...if your lashes are long and/or if your skin is oily, it will smudge and leave stripes on your lid below the brow. The brush is awesome and it washes off easily. SO disappointed! Still in search of the perfect mascara that doesn't cost a fortune.

              I was using another mascara because of what i was told about it, for some reason at the end of the day i felt like it was more under my eyes that on my lashes. They're real is such a nice change and never smudges and my lashes look amazing after every use.

                  I love this product. However, it does flake after about 8 hrs. of wear. I wear contacts and it bothers me when it starts to flake. But I love the look when first applied and will continue to use. Haven't found one I like better.

                      How does this mascara compare to TooFaced Better Than Sex Mascara? It costs about the same and their rating is pretty much the same so I'm just wondering which would be better for volume/lengthening

                        "We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing and we are playing a leading role in developing alternative methods through our support of the “Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing” in the United States and the Opal Program in France. Additionally, we are one of only a few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department to test raw materials and ingredients to further ensure the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers, which is our foremost priority.

                        "We are hopeful that alternative testing methods will be adopted worldwide and we will see an end to animal testing."
