This Kosas mascara is the happy medium between the dramatic look of extensions and my less-than-dramatic naked lashes. After I applied one coat and let it dry for a minute, the second coat went on even smoother, as if I'd used a lash primer. (I used the side of the brush with the tinier bristles to comb it through with zero clumps.)
Then, the fact that it's clean leaves little concern about contact-lens or eye irritation either. It easily comes off with just my regular face wash and I haven't noticed any lash fallout either. Sure, I haven't seen any growth thus far, but when I touch my bare lashes they're noticeably softer and smoother. So, most of all, it's not about how it looks but how it feels — and I really wish I could photograph this feeling for you.
