- The GG's Final Thoughts: There's no hiding the fact that I LOVE dramatic drag queen lashes! This seems to be as close as it gets out of all the natural one's I've experimented with so far. It's creamy and smooth application covers lashes nicely and holds a curl. The formula for this is a slightly thicker than this one. It doesn't flake, clump or smudge even after a crazy Girls Night Out (I apply pressed powder under my eyes just in case). Summer will be the true test though! I love that it's a nice, deep true black. No weird smell, so it's good for people with sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers (like moi). I like the applicator brush (which it's almost ALWAYS what it's all about when it comes to mascara) but I have to admit I wish it had a prickly rubber one that used to come on my conventional ones. I also found that I don't loose as many eye lashes as I used to (always a plus)! Coincidence? I think not :) Is this the ultimate Drag-Queen mascara? Maybe, maybe not... you can NEVER have too much voluptious-ness, haha... but it's the best one yet! Batting my eyelashes at YOU Gabriel... Blink, Blink ;) xo
