Here is the same eye with one heavy coat of mascara. I do put mascara on the topside and bottom side of my lashes. I've never known whether people consider that to be a no-no or not, but it helps the lashes look even thicker without bogging down the underside of the lashes with product.
Here we go after a 2nd coat a few hours later. (I got sidetracked lol...had to actually do some work!) The lashes were stil pliable enough to add another coat so I went for it. In person it's definitely more dramatic than it's showing up in these pics, but I think you can get a good reference of its capability on the lashes.
My overall opinion: I like the mascara. I definitely like it better than the regular Volume Express, which seemed to leave my lashes super clumpy and has a sickeningly sweet smell that just annoyed me constantly.
Do I think it gives a 'false lash' effect? On a person with plenty lashes in the first place, yes, but I don't think if you're lacking in the lash department it will take you super over the top. It will definitely give you a more lush looking, thicker 'natural' lash. You'll end up looking like a natural thick lashed girl wearing regular mascara. But if length is what you crave, the only way to really get that is going to be with falsies.
Will I buy this again? Quite possibly yes. I say that because I switch up mascaras constantly and I never seem to buy a mascara twice but this does go on my list if I was to do so.
Have any of you ladies tried it out? What do you think about it? Let me know in the comments!
