I am skeptical when it comes to what they call a good mascara. I tried, oh my goodness, tens of mascaras out there. With some...I ended up throwing them away. They were that bad. Anyway, long story short, I got the Yves Rocher mascara as a gift with my order. It's fantastic. I love the brush, I love the intensity of the color and I like how it stays on. The brush is I think made out some ruber or some kind of plastic, but it has those bristles really neat, so the mascara goes on your lashes really nice. You don't get those nasty lumps and it separates great the lashes. The color is neat, is intense. What I don't like about it is that it goes dry in the bottle to fast, and if try to put it on your lashes it still goes ok, but it gets flaky after awhile and so, you eye area looks as if you went wrong with your black eye'shadow. If you're the kind of person to use allot of mascara, go ahead and buy it, it won;t have time to get old :).
