As a mascara, this is wonderful. It lengthens and separates. Unfortunately, the "sequins" need to be a bit larger to be more noticeable as glitter, because as they are now, they're so subtle and drowned out by the mascara itself that the "sequins" end up looking like you have some thing(s) caught in your lashes. At just the right angle, it sparkles and it so pretty, but the planets, lights and lashes have to aligned perfectly for this effect. In the end, enlarging the "sequins" may not be safe for eyes, which may be why they went so small. I love it as a mascara but probably won't buy this again, at least not for the sparkly effect.
