I first received a sample size of this mascara from Sephora and fell in love with it when I was in New York (simple travel tip – bring sample/deluxe sizes of beauty products). It was AMAZING! Everyday I literally went up to my husband and exclaimed “Look at my lashes!!” After ooooh-ing and ahhhh-ing about this mascara, he sneakily went out and bought me the full size of it…at $32 a tube! Which is why I really hate to say it but do not spend your money on this mascara 😦
For some reason, the full size version of this mascara is no where as good as the sample size. The sample mascara created AMAZING length and volume, fantastic separation, and was easy to apply. The full size is so incredibly dry and clumpy. And I mean clumpy!! If you apply a second coat too early, your lashes look like you did not add any additional product. And a second too late you get dry, flaky lashes. Additionally, for reasons I do not understand, the lashes on my right eye never look as “good” as the ones on my left. For $32 a tube (when I normally spend $7-ish) I expect a much better product. Hate to say it y’all but this is not HG material. If there is another high end mascara you think IS worth the price tag, let me know. I am always up for trying a luxury mascara at least once.
