Lengthens and adds dramatic volume.
Minimal clumps (this comes with a con, read further).
No fallout (this comes with a con, read further)
Pretty good at curling and the curls hold.
The formula drastically changes as it dries out and it worsens (referring to the pros above);
- As the formula dries out it becomes clumpy (the swatches bear evidence as my second coat picture shows a little bit of clumping).
- When the formula dries out there also seems to be fallout.
The size of the wand makes it a little hard to work with.
I am giving it a high rating because the mascara blew my mind when I initially tried it out. This would have gotten a rating above 9 if the formula didn’t change as it dried out. But hey, for a MYR 20 mascara, 3 to 4 months use is more than enough although I kept using it until the 8th month mark! 😛
