bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara

I recently placed a Sephora order, and I picked bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara ($23 CAD) as one of my 3 free samples. I've been trying out this mascara over the last few weeks, so it's time for a review!

"This volumizing, lengthening, thickening, separating, long-wearing mascara does it all. The exclusive ProTwist180™ Wand is spiraled 180 degrees to curve around each lash and coat at every angle with intense black color." - Sephora

I just got a tiny sample from Sephora, but I've already gotten about 10 uses out of it, and it doesn't seem to be drying up yet. My lashes are quite long naturally and they have a nice curl to them, so I really turn to mascaras for added volume. I normally stick to purchasing drugstore mascaras, so I was really excited to try out this high-end formula in sample size. This mascara has a really interesting wand, and the bristles almost look like a spiral staircase. The plastic bristles are on the shorter side, but I still do like the effect that it gives to my lashes.

This colour is Intense Black, and I think the name is pretty true to the actual shade. I prefer to wear really jet black mascaras, and this is the only shade that this mascara comes in. This formula is a bit thick and wet, but it's still easy to work with. I do find that I have to give this mascara a few extra seconds to dry, or else it will smear onto my eye lids. However, once it's dry it doesn't transfer, flake, or fade. This formula isn't waterproof, so be aware of that. I find this formula fairly easy to remove at the end of the day with Bioderma. This mascara adds quite a bit of length to my lashes, and holds my curl. I find that the amount of volume is good, but I don't think that it's amazing. I would have liked for this mascara to add a bit more volume, especially since it's called Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara.
