At first I did not like this mascara at all! The brush was way too big and my lashes clumped… but then I realised I was applying it all wrong. If you leave every coat to dry before applying the next, it does not clump at all. And the result is beautiful black and thick lashes. I really like this formulation, I just wish they brought it out with a smaller brush (with plastic bristles). I am really happy with this product.
