I was rather puzzled by the wand. It is long and rather big in size then has lots of very short rubber bristles that I personally did not really like. Because they are so short I find it difficult to get them to grip each lash. The formula also seems to gather in certain areas on the wand and that means that you battle to get an even coating of the formula onto each lash. The ends of my lashes seemed to catch onto those clumps of formula and I had to remove the excess from my lashes with a tissue. That being said though, once you get use to the wand you are able to achieve a beautifully defined look with 1 coat, when I apply a second coat there is a bit of clumping that occurs. The lashes can easily be separated with a dry wand afterwards.
