The manufacturers claim that this mascara adds 4mm of fiber extensions that give the lashes a more dramatic look while separating and sealing in the fibers. I have not measured my lashes before and after application to verify the accuracy of the 4mm claim, but I do notice significant lengthening after just one coat.
The formula is creamy and easy to work with and is not too wet or dry but I would say leans more on marginally wet consistency. I have not experienced any clumping, flaking or smudging and removal is easy with a regular makeup remover or soap and water.
I don't curl my lashes, so I cannot comment on the strength of hold it would have after using a lash curler.
This mascara does not provide significant thickening but it does a great job at separating and lengthening the lashes. I have owned this tube for about 7-8 weeks and have had no problem with it drying out in the bottle quickly.
Illegal Length retails for about $8.99 in drugstores and the color shown here is in Blackest Black.
Bottomline: I like this mascara a lot. It is easy to work with and lengthens the lashes well and I would definitely recommend it. I am not totally wowed by it to call it a dramatic or one-of-a-kind transformation wonder but I consider this a great, no fuss everyday mascara.
For its lengthening, longevity and affordability, I rate Illegal Length 4 out of 5.
Thanks so much for reading!
