This is the first new mascara I have tried in awhile that I actually like. I received this in the play box. I like the wand as it works well with my short eyelashes. The formula dries quickly and last all day until I took it off. I had no issues with clumps and smudges and it did add some volume to my thin lashes. If I was interested in purchasing a new mascara, this one would be in the running. Recommend for short thin lashes that could use some volume and length.
