The Nyx The Skinny Mascara is a classic black mascara with a very thin applicator.
The package claims that the mascara is "perfected to coat every lash from root to tip! The micro-sized brush is ideal for enhancing the appearance of a fuller lash line." It also claims that is is smudge and flake resistant, reaches the tightest lashes, works great with your favorites mascara and is water resistant. The Skinny Mascara has a very, very thin brush and the bristles do not stick off of the wand very much. With such a small applicator, not a lot of product comes off on the lashes. This does make application take longer, but it also prevents clumps. The mascara gave okay results on the top lashes, but I bought it specifically for the bottom lashes since it has such a small applicator. The mascara doesn't give much thickness to the lashes, but it does separate and lengthen the lashes. I like to use this mascara as a first coat on my bottom lashes and follow up with a more thickening mascara like Jordana Best Lash Extreme. I didn't find the mascara to smudge on my lower lashline or flake off throughout the day. Overall I'm not in love with the product, but I also don't dislike it. I used three coats of The Skinny Mascara on my top and bottom lashes in the photos.
