This mascara builds volume and length. Long-lasting and buildable - says it doesn't clump, but I don't find that entirely true. Made in Italy.

This mascara is long lasting, at least on me it was. It's not waterproof, but I have a product coming up on my blog that will make any mascara waterproof.

Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara Review:
Mascara is something I'm very picky about. It's probably one of the only makeup products that I am loyal to, once I find a good one, so I don't find myself trying too many mascaras. My mascara drawer has several un-opened mascara samples and such, because I find I don't try them out like I do lip gloss or eyeshadow. However, there was so much buzz about this mascara and since it's only $2.99 I had to see if it was as good as everyone said it was.

I was really impressed with this from the moment I put it on my lashes. It made an immediate difference in volume and even length. As I built up the layers I did notice some clumps. However, it's nothing that a mascara comb couldn't take care of; I didn't use a mascara comb for the before & after pics because I wanted you to see how the mascara itself performed. You can still see it's pretty good with no huge clumps.

It's not the most volumizing or lengthening mascara I've ever tired, but it's pretty damn good - especially for the price! Overall, I'd recommend!
