I got this mascara as a Christmas gift from my mother this past year. After just using a couple weeks, I can't' say that I"m all the impressed with it. I thought it would be great to use and so did my mother since I have rather thin and short eye lashes, and I'm always looking for products to make them seem bigger than they are. It kind of gives you some length, but it clumps up really bad, so I don't feel I will ever buy the product myself after I finish using up what was given to me. I was rather disappointed with this product and expected more, perhaps it was because of the pretty color of the dispenser. I wouldn't recommend it for people who try to give their eye lashes a fuller rand longer look, I have used cheaper mascara that has worked better. Performance It get's the job done, but overall I've had trouble with it clumping on me and it doesn't look all that great. Ease of Application Goes on easy enough if you can get through the fact that it seems to clump.
