This mascara is a massive marmite product. You either love it or you hate it, and it's so true. I have seen so many bloggers love this product, and so many bloggers hate it, it only works for some people. Luckily I love this product, it works so well for me and makes my lashes so long and not clumpy at all. Benefit is a brand that I never really buy from, lots of their products appeal to me, but I can find drugstore alternatives a lot cheaper so I just can't justify spending that amount of money. After buying this, I've learnt that Benefit products are so worth it and I will be buying so much more, starting with the Lemon Aid Eye Primer.
I originally tried this mascara for the first time when it came as a sample with ELLE magazine, yes I admit it the mascara was the only reason I bought the magazine, but it was so worth it, getting a mascara for £4 instead of like £8 or something outrageous for a sample was a pretty good bargain to me. Ever since I tried it I've been meaning to pick it up again, but I have so many other good alternatives that are a lot cheaper, so I put it off for ages. About a month ago, I finally decided to buy it again, and I'm really glad I did, yes it's a lot of money for a mascara, but I use it everyday and it just lengthens my lashes so much. Mascara is the one product I can't live without, I find it makes me look more awake and bright.
The brush is one of my favourite things about this mascara. I love plastic brushes, I get on with them so well, until I poke myself in the eye and curse about why I ever decided to use a plastic brushed mascara, but it's all worth it in the end. The spikes on the end are so good for getting corner and bottom eyelashes. I also think the packaging on this mascara is really sleek and simple, I hate busy packaging, I'd much rather have a simple, classy looking product.

As you can see, this mascara seperates my eyelashes so well, and makes them so much longer, which is all I really want in a mascara.
