I love the grip on the wand, it is a rubber pink topper with diamond cut outs that make it VERY easy to hold onto. The only thing I don’t like about the handle is that the rubber material they made it out of stains and gets dirty almost immediately.
The brush is the same type of plastic rubber as most of the Cover Girl mascaras. It has a slight curve to the wand with the bristles being hooked and slightly longer on one side.
This is supposed to be all about curling lashes, and giving a really impressive result. I haven’t read many negative reviews about this, but I am surprised at how wet it is. I find it just weighs my lashes down even more. Benefit also says to use it with their sister mascara They’re Real. Things like that bother me. If I am paying $29 for a mascara I don’t want to have to spend more money on a second mascara to layer over it.
I have before and after pictures and have used this product for about a month. The only makeup I have on in the after photo is the mascara, and nothing in the before photos. There is about four coats on in the after photos, and I curled the wand as I was applying. Lashes were also curled before application using a Shuemura lash curler.
The difference is minimal. I notice the biggest difference in my outer lashes. That being said is it a $29 difference? Nope. One of these days a product will come out that will actually curl my lashes. Until then.. Ce la Vie.
