I would Suggest Using only 1-2 Coats. The More Coats Applied with ANY MASCARA can CLUMP & Look Very Spidery. & Another Helpful Tip is, when Applying Stay with that one Eye, don't Juggle between the two. Have Patience. One eye at a time, that Should help your Mascara Problem :)When you do one eye at a Time, the formula stays wet on your eyelashes, allowing you to apply your Second Coat even more Precisely.
