Ok, I didn't buy this. I got it free when I subscribed to Glamour magazine (along with loads of other make-up) but having got annoyed with a different mascara (more on that another day) I grabbed this. It is lovely! Not a night mascara though, unless you like subtle lashes. But for day time it is wonderful. The brush is pretty generic, old school. None of the fancy combs and new fangled wonders of modern mascaras, but it pulls through the lashes beautifully, has just the right amount of product per removal from the tube and coats, curls lightly and defines lashes just enough to make a difference but not in a dramatic, false lash way. A Bargain!
