I'm slowly checking off some of the "classics mascara's" that I have wanted to try. Why do I like trying classics? I figure there must be some reason they are still on the market after so many years. Especially because cosmetic companies are quick to discontinue items. Of course it's a drugstore brand so the price is about six dollars. I think I had a dollar off coupon too!
It's got that "old school" mascara tube look. It definitely doesn't fit in with the newer mascara looks but I kind of like that.
The brush...is tiny. I don't think I've ever used a brush so small. It has taken a little getting used to but I like the control that is offers compared to some of the more gigantic brushes they have now. Even with the extra control I still manage to smear it on my lids. It's excellent for the lower lashes though!
The formula is wet...and takes a little while to dry.
I like that it's buildable. I can get up to three coats on without it clumping up and looking like spider lashes on me.
The mascara gives me a lot of length. More than I was expecting. And a lot of definition. I was kind of surprised at it, mostly because I wasn't expecting much but I actually really like. It's not "going to the club" mascara... but a good work or every mascara.
I love that it never flakes...and as humid as it is I've never had it smudge on me! And no crunchy lashes!
My verdict? It's an oldie but goodie. I definitely recommend it, especially for those people that have really thick lashes and are looking for some length and definition!!
