This mascara was something I had been wanting because the ad in my Glamour magazine with Gwen Stefani made it look awesome. I really like L'Oreal to be honest but had not purchased any of their mascaras in ages. It comes in a pretty golden tube too! If you see the pic above- the brush drawn in the back (kinda bluish) looks nothing like the brush itself!! So disappointed with that to begin with...
Second, I do like the fact that it's a very black mascara and gives my lashes volume just as it promises through it's name. One coat does a lot, but not enough if you're going for really dark or bold. Third comment on the mascara- I do NOT like the clumps. I noticed it the very first time I used it. Not only am I not too crazy about the brush, but it clumps my lashes!! I hate mascaras that do that- but will keep using it because I refuse to give up on it after a week's use. It was pricier than what I usually buy and that was a downer for me.
Below you will see the brush itself. Not too bad, but not my favorite. It clumps my lashes and doesn't give me too much definition. At least not in my opinion. Yes, you will see looks with it for some time to come... I'm not too happy about that but I ditched my old mascara and until I find another good drug store one that I haven't tried yet- this is mascara. Hope this was helpful- till next time!
If I had to rate it- I'd give it a 6.5/10. Yup. Not my favorite.
