This is one of the very best mascaras I have ever tried, and I have tried A LOT. I think I've been through about four tubes of this stuff and continue to repurchase forever. The only minor downside to this, is that it dries out faster than I'd like and stops looking as good when applied. For this reason, I have had to purchase many tubes. I don't mind in the long run because this mascara truly is sensational!!
