I like this a lot. A LOT. I don't know if it's just because my last mascara (Mavala Eye-Lite Waterproof Mascara) was such a little trouble-maker and gave me panda eyes. But I can say that this is my favourite mascara for the moment. Never gave me panda eyes (it doesn't melt off on a hot day and after a loooong night-out it just chips and the dried up bits fall off a bit by dawn). I don't know whether it thickens your lashes because I don't really care for thickening my lashes (while I admire Miss Piggy's career/many talents and look-up to her as an entertainer, I do not aspire to look like her). What I do look for in a mascara is a kind of "hair gel" function that keeps my lashes 'propped-up', so that they 'open up' (if that makes any sense) and my eyes look bigger. Because otherwise, I just look like a sleepy cow. So I curl them, and then use this mascara to keep that curled shape, and for that purpose, this mascara is alright. If you care about mascara clumping, this does clump and I have to use this tiny comb I found at MUJI (I think it's actually meant for eyebrows, but I use it for my eyelashes and it helps). Also, I'm rating it ½ less for being pricey (mascaras are only good for 6 months after you start using them and they get dry, so there's never any sense in paying too much for them).
I'm really surprised that nobody ever raves about this! I tried it not really expecting much and now I don't want to use any other mascara. It goes on so nicely and never smudges under my eyes. It keeps them curled and perfect all day. The only thing that I don't like is that it takes a bit of work to get it off.
