I don't normally like the plastic brushes, although I have not tried that many to be honest. There was quite a lot of product on the brush when I took it out the tube, this was not an issue on application, there was no clumpiness or lumpy bits. My lashes looked amazing, really long and defined. I honestly looked like I had falsies on, I had no flaky bits or dark smudges under my eyes like some mascara's can leave me with. I am really pleased with the results and this is now on my wish list. What an excellent sized sample, I think this will last me for a while.
I would highly recommend you give this a go, if you are looking for full luscious lashes. I did ask at a few counters to buy this mascara and they were completely out!! Wow I predict this will be a best seller.
