My Thoughts: I received this in one of my BeautyArmy monthly subscription boxes, and I was excited to try it out.  I saw the wand for it, and I knew it was a shape that I've had good success with in the past.  It's cute, and easy to pack with the little hook-up to attach it to a gloss, so it would work perfectly for my vacation makeup kit.  I applied it to curled lashes, and the immediate effect was great!  It added length and volume without clumping or looking too "fake".

Sadly, my enthusiasm didn't remain intact until the end of the day, and neither did the mascara.  It was hot out, and I spent most of the day I did my test run out and about running errands in the heat.  In and out of the car, the humidity did a number on my lashes.  By the end of the day, although the mascara hadn't run at all, it was very mushy feeling.  It was like my lashes had been coated in black paste instead of mascara.  I'm used to mascaras that dry to a firm stiff feeling on my lashes.  Even the Maybelline Full N Soft mascara doesn't have this mushy feeling to it.  The outside corner lashes had clumped together, and when I pinched my lashes together between my thumb and pointer finger, it all came off on my fingertips in a goopy mess.

   

Final Verdict: Would I purchase this mascara?  No.  It didn't feel good on my lashes by the end of the day in the heat.
