This was the first ever mascara I bought during my university years, and for a while I quite liked it. The small brush really gets to coat my short lashes all the way through, and I found it easier to handle than the regular-sized ones. The thing is, I wear glasses 98% of the time, and when I wear mascara, after a couple of hours, my curled eyelashes completely collapses and bumps into my lenses, and it just creates a mess. I reserved this for special events when I break out the contact lens, but since mascara has a pretty short shelf life I ended up throwing it away after like, less than 10 uses. I've completely eliminated mascara from my makeup routine. Hey, at least I tried!
