The mascara brush is small, which is good as it coat every lashes nicely. The brush also makes it easier to apply mascara on my lower lashes. One funny thing about this mascara is that, at times, even after few hours, this mascara feels sticky, and when I applied to my lower lashes too, my upper and lower lashes and the corner of my eyes would stick together. It doesn't really bug me anyway.
This humble $1 mascara does a real good job at lengthening lashes. It also hold curl nicely. For this review, I apply few coats of the regular mascara and a coat of the waterproof mascara without using eyelash curler prior or after application.
Aside from good lengthening and curling effects, this mascara hardly smudge even in humid weather. However, it's not completely waterproof as it easily flakes if it get wet. Removal is easy, you only need to wash it with facial cleanser, rub a lil to work the cleanser into the mascara and it removed in clumps. Wet wipes is enough to remove most of the mascara.
I can tell you that I'll definitely recommend this friends. Actually, I bought this for my mom and my sisters, and I'm pretty sure they like it. I love this mascara so much that I'd placed order for 6 of this babies. For the price, this mascara get 5/5.
p/s: with a small tube like, for sure I'll be able to finish up the mascara within 3 months. Hooray!
