First off, is this not one of the most attractive packaging jobs you've ever seen on a tube of mascara? I stupidly forgot to take a picture of the tube outside of the plastic and cardboard encasing but you can sneak a peek of it over on Rimmel's website. I love the metallic purple and sleekness going on. But the real coolness comes when you whip the wand out!
Not that it matters much once you dip the brush in the mascara, but the plastic bristles are a nice bright, cool purple. And check out them curves, literally! How groovy! I do remember though the very first time I saw the wand and wondering how the shape of the brush was really going to give me "70% curvier lashes" as Rimmel promises. To be honest, after 3 years I still haven't figured out how it does it, but I can confirm that it does get the job done somehow.

Another huge thing about this mascara that I love is that with this I've finally found a mascara that can help out my scarce, skimpy, stubby bottom lashes. Usually I don't even bother doing anything with them because most mascara just make a mess on my bottom lid, and since I barely have any lashes to begin with, the mess shows up even worse. It also usually clumps the few lashes I have together, making me look like I only have 3 or 4 bottom lashes. With Sexy Curves, since it takes off so much excess product it doesn't make a mess on my actual skin no matter how close I put the want to my lash line and keeps my lashes as neat as possible. For me this is a life saver.
Lastly, on me this mascara holds the curl on my lashes all day, so I don't have to worry about them drooping through the day.

There's really not a person I wouldn't recommend this to irregardless of our individual lash situation. Who doesn't want more curl? One thing I will say is that I rarely use this mascara on its own, usually using it amp up or de-clumpify another mascara. So if you're looking for a mascara that will give you a lot of va-va-voom on it's own, this may or may not be for you, depending on the amount of drama you prefer.
