      I cant see that it does anything that it says it should unless you have super long lashes anyway. It did nothing to my lashes except clump up and fall off.

            I love this...on the days I don't hate it. Sometimes it goes on perfectly & its so worth the money. Lots of volume, deep black, good curl, doesn't smudge. But most of the time it clumps, or makes it look like you have 4 large lashes sticking straight out. Feels spikey & you're very aware that you're wearing mascara.

                    This mascara is probably one of the best mascaras I've tried out there! It lives up to what it says and it definitely makes your eyelashes look nice but still look natural. It doesn't clump up as much if you put it on correctly and it lengthens the lashes. It's perfect for everyday use! However, I wouldn't use this mascara if I were to go out at night or to a big event. As perfect as it is, it's not that dramatic that it'll stand out!

                        "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."

                        We recommend using an eyelid primer like Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray to prevent smudging, especially if you have oily lids:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod1840041

                        Apply 3 tiny dots under your eyes & blend. Next apply 3 dots on eyelids & blend. Let set, then apply concealers & eyeshadows as usual.
