This is an old fashioned type of brush but with an excellent curve to it (which I've tried to show in the picture, which I should mention shows a sample size of this mascara). This could be completely lash dependent but for me it makes it really easy to get from top to the bottom of all my lashes. You can use the back edge of the brush to come through the lashes.
There isn't really a pointy end so you have to run the risk of a blob if you are doing the inner-corner - which I do and it doesn't bother me. If you are someone with very fine lashes then this is probably not going to be a great brush for you. Which is a shame as it's a great formula for adding length and volume. The curve shapes gives help to the curl of they eye lash for those of us too lazy to curl every day. I know I should. But I don't.
The formula is definitely one of my favourites - really black, you get a fair whack of product without clumping. Perfect if you want length and volume and a bit of drama - as the name suggests. It is not at all waterproof. I have cried wearing this and I looked like a panda without it being on my lower lashes even. This is fine and makes it easy to remove and gentle on lashes but if you are going anywhere you might shed a tear then this is not the one to wear. I don't wear it on my lower lashes because I tend to have weepy eyes if it's bright or its windy. If you were going to wear this on the bottom lashes then the reverse side of the brush would be great and prevent blobbing.
It lasts all day and feels nice and soft to the touch.
