The first time I bought this I didn’t get the it in black. I got it in brown and I didn’t like the brown because you couldn’t see the brown. When I got the black I thought it was good. I don’t like that it clumps together if you apply a lot on to make your lashes longer. Unfortunately my lashes are small so they won’t get much longer. This mascara does not make your lashes look like they are natural. It does last long so that is a pro.
