I'm a mascara junkie who experiments with mascaras of all price ranges, but this is one I keep going back to. My lashes are naturally long and straight but don't have much volume. After curling with a traditional eyelash curler, one thick coat of this is all I need. If it's unevenly clumpy I comb through with a clean spoolie, but my lashes look better with a slight bit of clumpiness . I love that this mascara holds the curl all day, and the huge bristle brush saves a lot of time.
