Overall Experience:
I never skip mascara no matter what kind of makeup look I am doing. But if I am going out for longer hours, I always want a waterproof or atleast a water resistant mascara so it can handle the perspiration in hot & humid weather of Malaysia. I really liked how this mascara comes with a refill which is really nice.

Full sized refill is good even if you want to use it later but it is great for professional use. It does not come with an extra want and has a screw lid. A professional makeup artists can use disposable mascara wands to dip in the refill and can make it hygienic for her/his customers.

Application is pretty good with the slim brush, it gives me a precise application for both my upper and lower lashes. As you can see in the pictures, it gives really good result in terms of; volume, length & curling. No, I did not curl my lashes prior to application to show the proper results. The formula has a thick consistency and it dries really fast so you got to be really quick if you want to apply more than one coat. It does not clump the lashes much even with three coats.

Staying power is also pretty great as it does not tone down in 6-8 hours and even after that, the difference is not much. The lashes uncurl just a tiny bit after 6-8 hours.

The mascara is works great if you are sweating too much but it is not waterproof. A splash of water/rain and it can mess up your makeup. Also, if you cry for any reason and your lashes gets really wet, DO NOT rub the eyes, instead take a tissue and press your lashes between the tissue to absorb the tears/water, else you will end up with raccoon eyes. But yeah, I noticed that even with heavy splashes of water, this mascara does not run down my face which is good.

In my views, this mascara has a good value for money since you are getting two full sized mascaras and the quality is pretty good as well.

Overall, I really love this mascara for my routine use and for special occasions as well.
