Lash Fusion by Fusion Beauty has a very full very plush wand/brush. The first thing I look at when choosing a new mascara is the brush. It has to be very full. Lash Fusion fit the bill perfectly. I am not sure what the other reviewers disliked about it since they didn't actually say (???) but I found it to be a very good mascara. I have tried them all, trust me. I am a total mascara addict. If one exists, I have tried it. Lash Fusion has a very deep black color and a great consistency. It is very easy to build up a dramatic look in just a few swipes. It really works to plump up the lashes and make them look much fuller/add volume. My lashes are fairly long, but too thin, so I like to bulk them up and this mascara did that very well. I did not have any clumping, no smears, no runs, no raccoon eyes. As for the prolonged benefits - increased lash growth etc, I am still a little undecided on that. That doesn't bother me though because I was not looking for any long term effects/benefits - I was just looking for another good mascara. Lash Fusion is definitely a good mascara.
