This is a great everyday mascara for those who don't care to have dramatic lashes on a daily basis. It darkens the lashes and does not clump one bit. If you want curl, you need to curl your lashes first. Personally my lashes never seem to be able to hold a nice curl with any mascara so I can't really vouch for whether or not this mascara works in that respect. I also like to run this mascara over my lashes after I've applied a different mascara that gives me more of a dramatic look and helps comb out my lashes nicely.
