i got this mascara as a bit of a random spend..
and unfortunately, i haven't really been using it.
it doesn't give me a 'false lash effect' and the brush is so spikey!
i definitely would not recommend using the "blinking" method
to coat your lashes with this mascara because it will HURT! :(
my lashes are very thin so i usually choose a brush with more bristles
but the texture of this mascara is very hard to build on to get volume or length.
i have to do about 4 coats of mascara to actually see any results!
this mascara is a little more pricey compared to other high street brands
and my favourite ones do the job perfectly for me!
so i was really disappointed with this purchase :(
i definitely would not recommend getting this product
if you have very thin and short lashes as it is very hard to build on
and the bristles are too sharp to touch your water line
so you can't really create longer lashes from the base.
i think this product would work a lot better for thicker lashes
because it would be easier to transfer the product to the lashes.
however, not all of us are blessed with long, thick and full lashes! :'(
i don't think the gold edition is different the normal black one,
i think it just makes it 'limited edition' because of the gold packaging..
doesn't smudge if you coat your bottom lashes
hard to build on
little more expensive
can't get the 'false lash effect'
i couldn't get a picture of me actually wearing the mascara
because it wouldn't show up on the camera (no length or volume!)
