Overall, I am very pleased. My pre-Paraben HG mascara was Maybelline Full 'n Lush. I had most recently been using Colossal because it does not have Parabens. I have tried a couple of organic mascaras and thought they were awful. Carmindy by Sally Hansen being the worst offender. This is by far the best organic mascara I have tried and definitely up there with regular mascara. It's my new HG.
The container is incredibly cute with the metallic green leaf. It also has a fat bottom and firmly sits on counter tops. It's a nice decorative piece. LOL. The mascara is fragrance free, so no 'mascara smell'. The ingredients list is very impressive and natural.
It comes with a standard rubber wand and the formula is very smooth. I bought 'Ultra Black' and it really makes my eyes pop. I was very impressed with the length this gave me. One coat did it. I noticed throughout the day that my lashed did not feel like they had mascara on them. It was kind of a strange sensation, but I got used to it. It's that light. No flaking or drooping. It still looked fresh at the end of the day.
My only issue came when I tried to take it off. I am used to using a baby wipe to remove my mascara. Well, this time the baby wipe did remove my mascara from my lashes, but rubbed it below my eye. It's not like with waterproof mascara where you have to rub and rub to get it off your lashes, this came off immediately, but then stuck to my skin. I used olive oil to clean it up. Not a big deal, but I was surprised at how the mascara liked to adhere to any surface it touched.
