I've used Laura Mercier tinted foundation, but wasn't sure about mascara - I thought it might be too feathery. But I wanted a more natural look than my last Bobbi Brown mascara gave, so I thought I'd give this a try. This is great. It makes my lashes look long and curly, without being sticky and heavy. It doesn't aggravate my sensitive eyes (I wear contact lenses). Stays on all day, but comes off super easily with micellar water. A real find.
