The packaging reminds me of the maybelline mascara. I used that a couple of times but the nickak one is a really great dupe quality wise but at the fraction of the cost. There was no clumping and the brush really got to the base of my lash line and they looked thicker. really great.
This mascara didn't clump at all and it coated all my lashes really nicely. I usually need to coat maybe 3or 4 times to get the result I want but I only did it twice. Also bristles were really precise so it separated them too. it's actually better than the Lancome one Ive been using for the past 3 years. yay!
