I am a sucker for gimmicks and this double mascara sucked me right in. It is offered in four colors – for green, blue and brown eyes and one suitable for all eye colors. I bought the Black Quartz for Brown Eyes. I should have known this would be a disappointment since I don’t really understand how lashes can “illuminate” eyes. One end of the wand adds volume and length with a traditional applicator. Step two is done with the other end of the wand and a sphere-shaped brush. The color of this step is a brown pearl with metallic. The mascara did not stay on for long and the second step was more work for no payoff. In my opinion, there are lots of drugstore mascaras that are far more effective.
