I guess I'm in the minority here, but I hated this mascara. I thought I would love it. I did go on smoothly, covered my lashes well, even made them look longer and thicker, but it took forever to dry, so long that with every blink it left little black flecks on not only my eyelids but also under my eyes. I've tried it a few times to see if maybe it was because it was brand new , but NO each time I used it the same thing happened. I am leery to buy another Rimmel mascara, they are very affordable, but not if you can't use it!
