I use a lot of mascara. I own over 20 tubes because I'm constantly in search of that Holy Grail. Some get close and some crash, burn and fail miserably. This Chantecaille one is beautiful! Ranks right up there with my YSL Babydoll. Fans, separates, thickens, lengthens - it does it all. I have very sparse, short lashes so for any mascara to leave any sort of impression on me, you know it's got to be good. The brush is the perfect style for my type of lashes. I will buy tube after tube of this for as long as they make it. Love!
