I took a chance, not long ago.
I bought a mascara that cost almost 30 bucks. That's pretty steep. Praying that I didn't make some awful mistake, I applied like, 5 coats of Laura Mercier volume building mascara and it is the best I have ever tried. And I always try new brands of mascara because they all have disappointed in the past.
Give it a try, it's the best thing that has ever happened to me.
Only one problem - it is a real bitch to remove. But I can ignore that...
