This mascara is OK. Is not wonderful, is not terrible either. Just so-so. It is better than some I have used. The brush is a tad bit big and wide - I am afraid I will poke myself in the eye with that thing. Does not clump on lashes, applies farily evenly, finished product is so-so.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Rotate the mascara brush in the barrel to load the mascara wand, do not pump the mascara brush into the barrel. Apply using a zig zag motion from the root to the tip of the lashes. Apply to the bottom lashes first then the top lashes. Allow the first coat to dry before applying a second coat. To encourage the fullest lash fan, apply all over the lashes, then apply a little more at the outer corner of the eyes.
