It’s still length­en­ing, still vo­lu­mis­ing, but is much more flat­ter­ing if you have short, poker-straight lashes.

… and made for short, straight Asian lashes.

When a mas­cara claims to get the job done – whether it’s length­en­ing, curl­ing or vo­lu­mis­ing – in “just one swipe”, it prob­a­bly can’t do the job very well. To get re­sults in “just one swipe”, the for­mula has to be pretty heavy – which works for lashes that are al­ready long, thick and curly, but not for re­ally straight, short ones. On the lat­ter, the ef­fects look over­the-top.

The newer mas­caras have lighter for­mu­las and are build­able. Ev­ery swipe builds on the last. You stop when you’re happy, whether it’s wispy or dra­matic that you’re af­ter. Lashes re­main clump-free too.
