I always struggle with mascaras, as in my eyes (no pun intended) they're all pretty similar. I've never met a mascara I've hated and I've never met a mascara that I've particularly loved. I've tried high end and drugstore, and I have no preference. This Buxom mascara is good I won't deny it, but I didn't put it on and think 'Wow! My lashes look like the wing of an eagle'. I would definitely use it and if something gave it to me I would thank them, but I don't think I'll be buying it for myself full price. If you're after an everyday mascara and budget isn't a problem then I would definitely recommend it!
