Things I want from my mascara:
b) No mess
c) A reasonably natural non-Kardashian look
Over the years I've found that at least half of that comes from the brush. Of course, a good formula that stays put and doesn't make lashes stick together is just as important, but the wrong brush can seriously mess things up. Make Defining Mascara is all that, and exactly what the company promised: Defining. It doesn't add an unnatural length, but it gives an overall effect of a full and dark fringe.
The main thing I've noticed about it is the way the brush separates the lashes, coats them individually, and doesn't cause gloopiness. The design of the brush and the tube doesn't allow for over-application because it picks just the right amount of product, and deposits in the right place. The this point gives access to the corners and finer lashes. I love thin brushes that are also dense enough to coat the lashes evenly because they save you the need to apply layers upon layers of mascara. I find that two coats of Make is enough, especially for daytime, and even when I experimented with piling it on the result was still sane and didn't look like a furry animal has taken residence on my lids after rolling in sticky tar.
Bottom Line: a very elegant mascara, just like the packaging.
