Amazon Customer 5 This was my first time using Japanese cosmetics. I only use organic/ non toxic makeup, but I always ordered from abroad. I couldn't put up with the long delivery time any longer and I'm glad I tried this mascara. It is better than my regular mascara, which I though was the Holy grail of mascaras. This is the first mascara I've bought that does not clump and still gives full and elongated lashes. It's also non irritating. It really does set your lashes in place. It leaves your lashes feeling dry and hard though, but it's very lightweight so it feels like you're not wearing mascara. It's messy to remove though, but it's possible to remove it with warm water and soap. I put one coat at the back of my lashes then, when that dries, I put the second coat on the front making sure I coat my lashes from root to tip. My lashes are curled upwards without the need of an eyelash curler. I'm not saying everyone won't need to curl, but I definitely don't. I'm glad I no longer have to order mascara from the U.S.
