I have been wanting to get a new mascara lately, and I originally wanted to get a high-end brand mascara. While at Walgreens though, I saw this mascara and the display intrigued me. Why? 80% because of Gwen Stefani advertising this mascara, 10% because of the interesting claims, and 10% because I didn't feel like waiting to go to the department store for a more expensive one.

|With Mascara, one coat.|
First thing was the packaging. It is kind of bulky and huge for a mascara, and the triangular shape is different. Next I noticed the brush, and how it is slightly bent and has many bristles. Once I started to use it, I ended up going with only one coat. Some people like to build up their mascara, but I prefer not to. I will always use one coat and stop there. Could be because my lashes are already thick on their own. After doing one coat, I noticed that it had dried pretty quickly. So if you are one of those people that like to use many coats of mascara, this might not be for you. I really liked this for my own preference.
The formula is also pretty good. My lashes were separated, and they stayed curled all throughout the day. I had a small amount of clumping but I took care of that with an eyelash comb. The one I bought was in Blackest Black and I bought it at Walgreens for $8.99. Is is worth the $8.99? I think so, but this kind of mascara seems like it won't work for everyone.
I do wear contacts so I wanted to see if there would be any smudging or possibly fibers get in my eye from the mascara. None of those things happened to me. This mascara has been pretty great and I use it every day. Will I buy it again? I would. Is it my HG mascara? No. I will always love Chanel Inimitable mascara as my HG, but this would be a close second.
Have you tried this mascara? What do you think?
