Both the primer and the mascara brushes are skinny and have natural bristles. The brush on the mascara side is slightly curved. I love the small size of the brushes.
I apply the primer and then immediately apply the mascara.
Below is my lashes with 1 coat of primer and then 2-3 coats of the mascara.
As you can see, with 3 coats of this mascara my lashes are very voluminous and black! There is a bit of clumping which can be fixed by running a lash comb through my lashes.
Overall, I really like the L'Oreal Voluminous Superstar Red Carpet Mascara. It retails for around $10.99 and can be purchased at Ulta or anywhere that L'Oreal products are sold.
