The shade I have is black brown, which I didn’t know until I opened the mascara from its packaging. I worried it would appear more brown, but it’s actually almost black. The formula of the mascara is slightly wet, but dries in 30 seconds to a minute. That’s important to keep in mind if using a setting spray. The mascara stays on all day once it dries and does not flake or smudge at all. Its wand may not look it can do much, yet it can get to the roots up to the tips of my lashes easily. It does give volume and slightly lengthens, which is good for a glasses wearer like me. 🙂
I tried several drugstore mascaras and this is the best so far; definitely repurchasing if needed. 🙂
