This mascara is awesome. It goes on smooth, coats my lashes evenly, and truly lengthens and separates each lash as it dries, which is exactly what I look for in a mascara. Even if a couple of lashes are stuck together as you're applying this stuff, they somehow magically separate as the mascara dries. Very cool.
The flexible rubbery brush kinda threw me off at first, but once I got used to it, it was a breeze to use. In fact, I think I may prefer this brush to more rigid ones. Maybelline Define-A-Lash doesn't smudge or flake (I would know, I wear hard contacts), and it washes off easily with warm water.
I'd definitely recommend this mascara to a friend (like you!) and I'll definitely be buying another one when this tube runs out.
