This was nice, but still nothing fascinating. I'm always trying new mascaras and even when I pay a pretty penny for some (like this one) I dont seem to find a big difference between the high-end department store type versus the ones you can find at walmart, zellers, etc. This one worked well enough and wasn't flaky but I didn't find that it made my lashes very long or space them out nicely. After trying to get them to space out with the applicator, it just became chunky.

What I like about it:
Even without the primer and with only one coat of mascara, my eyelashes seem more prominent compared to my clean lashes. It lengthen my lashes a bit althought it's nothing too dramatic and seemed to hold the curl pretty well. With two coats of mascara, my lashes looks even better because it's thicker and has defined my lashes really well. I also like how it doesn't come out with too much goop on the mascara wand unlike some mascaras do. It just has enough to coat your lashes which prevents the clumping.

What I don't like about it:
It doesn't really volumnize your lashes. Don't expect killer flutters with this mascara. It wouldn't be my go to mascara for a night out since it only defines whatever lashes you have. The primer seemed pretty unnecessary to achieve defined lashes. If anything, the primer just weighs down the curl. I find that I rarely use the primer side of the of this mascara duo. Also, after two coats of the mascara with the primer, my lashes has a tendancy of clumping afterwards.

Overall:
I probably won't repurchase this again. Since I'm not a big fan of the primer that it comes with, I can't justify just buying the mascara for $12.60 that it retailed for (and that's already the sale price) solely for the mascara end of the tube. The mascara is pretty mediocre that you can probably get same results, if not, better from drugstore brands. The only reason I picked it up is because I was a bit intrigued and decided to try it out. Now that I have, I'm very much happy to let it go.

I did not like this mascara at all. I had to use way too many coats, in my opinion, to get the 'false eyelash' look it boasts in the claim. Very disappointing for me because I adore Bourjois mascara (their Volume Glamour is my BFF). Nonetheless I keep it around for when the mascara fount runneth dry and my wallet is "lacking in spirit".

I absolutely love this mascara! It is able to give me those *almost* false looking lashes without any kind of clumping and while it stays on through the night, I have no problem getting it off when it comes time to go to bed at the end of the night. It also never aggravates my eyes, even though I wear contacts.

My trick is to apply two coats of the white lengthening/thickening fibers to my top lashes, followed by two to three coats of the mascara to the top lashes and one coat of mascara to the bottom lashes in order to achieve Hollywood starlet eyelashes. If I'm in a rush to work, I just use the mascara portion for a more natural look.
