This mascara sample came in my November 2017 Sephora Play. I love having sample size mascaras...who really needs a full size when you just have to chuck them in a few months! This is a very dry mascara formula. Which I like...but these dryer formulas don’t ever last long. It is a little clunky when applied, but with this mascara it only helps to create volume. The clumps are not all that uncomfortable or annoying as they are in most other dry mascaras (not sure why that is?). The brush is a fluffy hourglass shape that makes application very easy. It does a great job coating the lashes and spreading them out at the same time. I am very impressed!!! The mascara keeps the lashes coated all day, however, I have noticed some flaking under the eyes at the very end of the day. This is not surprising since it is so clumpy. But over all I really like how this mascara applies, how easy it is, and how full and fanned my lashes look!!! I would definitely consider repurchasing at some point!
