Despite the trend of mascaras that make you look like you're wearing falsies, I prefer less drama around my eyes. I still want length, curl and definition, though. I've been using both Lancome Hypnose and Clinique's High Impact with great satisfaction, and now I can add another mascara to this list of really good ones.
Estee Lauder's More Than Mascara (I have it in More Black) gives similar results. It doesn't boast any special superpowers, yet it delivers beautifully defined lashes, adds some length (not exaggerated) and holds a curl. No clumps or flakes yet, and I've been using it for three weeks now. Also no dots and smears, and it dissolves relatively quickly in Lancome's Bi-Facil cleanser.
I think it's too rich for my naturally thick lower lashes, so I haven't tested it on them. And, speaking of rich, I have no idea what's the difference between the two blacks they offer: More than Black vs, Rich Black. Has anyone ever tried to compare?
