Technically, I'd give it around 3.5 stars. It would rank higher if I got both volume and length. I definitely saw length from this mascara, but the volume was lacking for me. I love the Blackened Brown and I have reached for this when I want a more natural look. I might try layering with another mascara to see if I have better luck on the volume side of things. I want the best of both worlds!
This is a nice nude shade that I think will suit a lot of people. It does dry down as a matte and I experienced no feathering or accentuating of dry patches. The formula feels light on the lips and goes on opaque in one swipe while lasting a few hours on my lips before needing a touch-up. It has a strong fruity scent, but it goes away. This is a winner!
For me, my eyelashes are on the straighter side and not that long. And for that, I think that was my main problem with this mascara. It's a very wet formula and while I thought it made my eyelashes thicker and not clumpy, it was hard to get them to hold a curl. I am not a big fan of wet formulas and this one was just messy for me and this one took a long time to dry down. A lot comes out on the brush that you have to wipe off on the side of the bottle.
I love the idea of being able to shake it and refresh the formula. I think it is such an innovative creation and I wish I liked it more. I don't hate it, but I have used far better mascaras.
