How to use:

  • Sweep the Mega Brush from the root to tip of lashes to create instant volume
  • Do not let mascara dry in between coats

Product Experience:

  • The black wand contains fine bristles that enhance lash volume. 
  • The fine bristles coat every lash without causing clumps.
  • It lengthens and separates lashes and gives volume to otherwise limp 
  • The consistency is good to work with, not very runny neither very thick.
  • It really opens up my eyes and doesn't get to messy. 
  • The mascara lifts up the lashes for good 7-8 hours without any smudging.

Pros:

  • Availability
  • Affordable 
  • Vibrant packaging
  • Staying power
  • Doesn't weigh down the lashes 
  • Not messy
  • Dries quickly
  • Add volume to the lashes
  • Doesn't clump
  • Easy to apply

Cons:

  • Doesn't curl the lashes
  • Doesn't add 9x volume as it is claimed
