Top Lashes: Two coats of mascara. Bottom Lashes: one coat of mascara.

I will start off my saying that I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of my bare lashes, I completely forgot!  As you can see in the pictures above, it lengthens my lashes nicely and adds some volume with 2 coats. I will make note that if you have smokey eye makeup on, the lashes don't have enough volume for my taste and get a bit lost in the look (this is the case for me). 

The tips of my lashes seem a big clumpy in the picture with 2 coats, & the reason for this is because I took these pictures right before I threw it out for being quite dried out (I'd been using it for over 6 months). With a fresh tube, this does not happen.

The way I apply this mascara: with the first coat, I apply an even coat through the length of the lashes (from the front & from behind the lashes) making sure I get enough onto the very base as well. I then apply a second layer from the front of the lashes, mostly on the bottom half of the lashes to bulk up the volume there.

To sum it up, this is my favorite mascara that I've used within the last year+, but I wouldn't say it's a holy grail as it doesn't give enough volume for all kinds of eye looks.

  3. Your lashes are so amazing! I love the length!

  4. Have you tried Maybelline's Falsies? I love it for the volume, though I recommend running it through with an eyelash comb for potential clumping.
