I really like this mascara, but only for the evening. It's a bit "much" for the daytime. Once you put on the regular black mascara, gently sweep ONLY the out edges of your lashes with the silver highlighter. DO NOT USE on your entire eyelash. It appears fake & strange, which makes you look like an ALIEN! LOL! It does remove easily with either make-up remover or soap & water. It's a fun mascara which lasts all evening. A good buy for a set of 4!
