I RARELY give a rating of 5, but this mascara is incredible! I had used it before, but my frugality made me pull back. But having a social event to attend, I wanted mascara that would be glamorous. Well, when it was time to get dressed, I opted to have my "natural" eyelashes rather than false ones. With my shadow and mascara, my eyes were stunning and it all set off my look. Now that I have done my own makeup for a big social event, I am confident that this would be a definite if I did it again.
