A few months ago I picked up this mascara from Target on a whim. I don't usually use drugstore mascara but at the time I hadn't been able to get to a MAC and needed a new one so I thought what the heck I'll give it a try. I'm quite glad I did take a chance on this product because it's surprisingly good and I would have to say I actually like this better than the MAC one I was using.
I picked this up in Black Brown to use for more natural and everyday looks, the color is still very dark and hard to tell that it's actually a black brown for the most part. The wand has short spiky little bristles that may look a bit scary at first but they do a great job applying the mascara to the lashes. The tiny spikes help make sure that you don't miss any lashes and that you achieve even coverage. You will have no spider lashes with this little guy at your disposal!
This is the non waterproof formula, I don't know about you guys but I hate waterproof mascara I find it does horrible things to my lashes. Such as making them fall out like crazy or feel really dry throughout the day, so I always go with the non waterproof formula. Once on the lashes this feels very light and doesn't flake or feel tacky during wear.
Now as for it giving your lashes more volume I feel that it does this but I have long lashes so I'm not sure how well it would work for someone with shorter lashes.
Overall I really like this product and would recommend it I think it's great quality for a drugstore brand. You can pick this up for around $7-$9 depending on where you buy it from.
Have you tried Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara?
