I purchased this mascara at the same time as the Carmindy lip glosses reviewed below. I wore this to work today. This has a tiny little spiral brush. It does not look like the standard bristle or rubber nubbins brush. The mascara came out in a wet glob and went on my lashes the same way. You can't brush out your lashes with their wand, it just keeps globbing on product. The opening in the mascara tube is microscopic, so you can't use a brush from another product. I had to open a new spoolie (mascara wand) to get my lashes straightened out. I still was not satisfied they looked okay, but I had to leave. The product does not add length or body, just color. My only positives about this are my lashes are soft, not stiff and I did not experience flaking. Would not buy again.
