I normally buy the professional all in one, but I decided to try this to see if it would give me thicker lashes. First of all, the price is great and the mascara works, but I have too many issues with it to repurchase. I find that the mascara is just too thick on the wand. The end of the wand always has a huge goop on it when I pull it out of the container and even on the wand it looks clumpy before I even use it. Once I get it onto my lashes I find I have trouble getting my lashes to separate. It does not really give me thicker lashes, it just gives me lash clumps. Not the best look. I actually have to work hard with a clean mascara wand to separate the lashes and get them to look normal again. This is a lot more work than the professionals all in one ever was, and more time than I ever want to have to spend on my eyelashes. I prefer a very fast and easy makeup routine. So I would definitely not recommend this mascara unless you are willing to put in extra time every morning.
