The brush of this travel mascara is completely useless because the bristles are so short and small. It wouldn't distribute the mascara onto my lashes at all. I would have had to press it against my eyes and had I done that I would have smudged mascara all over my eye. I'm very disappointed in this product. I meant to return it but never got around to it. I can't speak to the quality of the mascara because I couldn't actually get it on.
