The color was fine, but it dried down so quickly once applied, the formula was sticky before it dried down, and my lashes were spidery like I'd never seen with one application! The wand is promising, curved to the lash and the bristles well distributed but something about the product was too thick. It is very effectively waterproof. If you're looking for a subtle mascara look, this isn't the one, but if you're into a dramatic mascara (i.e. a little thick and clumpy) with little room for error during application, this mascara is the one.
