I’ve used this mascara for many, many years. I’ve tried other mascaras in between (including younique) and nothing compares to this one for me. It gives my lashes a volume boost for sure! I do usually have to give it about 4 coats to be satisfied, but I love the results after those 4 coats. I use the waterproof version and I love it. My only complaint about it would be that after you have the tube for a month or so, it just isn’t the same. When the tube is brand new, it’s amazing, but shortly after it gets dried out it seems. I don’t leave it unsealed, so I’m not sure why it does that. I usually have to replace my mascara before the life of my tube is really finished because it just gets to be unusable -not as moist or easy to apply.
