I bought about three of these from Nordstroms three years ago and i still have two of them. I usually switch between mascaras every three months to give all of them a chance but Lancome is the only mascara that i actually set out to purchase. They keep my eyelashes separated so no spider eyelashes and they leave just the right amount of coating. The other mascaras i buy: my hg is Grandiose, my third is Doll Lashes and Deficils in my other fave. But i never really buy Deficils. They always give me that one with gwps.
