I don't normally like these plastic brushes, but this is a very nice mascara. I don't like anything that globs and gives you big stuck together spikes. I want my eyes to look more natural. I think you could build a heavier look with this very easily, but I use just one coat and then top that with a coat of the Maybelline Lash Discovery, which I hope they never quit making because I love it!
I used to have a waterproof mascara that always took a few lashes as sacrifice when I removed it with a make-up remover. Somebody recommended the non-waterproof version of Maybelline Define-A-Lash somewhere online, so I bought it.
It's amazing. I don't know if it lengthens as I have naturally longer lashes so I didn't really notice anything myself, but it gives a very clean defined look perfect for everyday. No clumpiness, and it doesn't smudge, even when I once forgot myself and rubbed my eye during the day. Also it didn't give my eyelashes a very stiff feel after I put it on, like they would break if you bend them. It was drizzling during the day, but it didn't run.
My favorite part is that it comes off so very easily. It washes off with warm water. I actually forgot to remove it once, and took a shower with the mascara still on, and afterwards I noticed it was completely gone without any smudging or panda eyes.
Not very important, but I thought the green bottle was very cute.
