This really works!! The pin says to put one coat of mascara on and then dip your wand in baby powder and then dip it back into the mascara and then put a second coat of mascara on and it makes your lashes longer. Not only did it work but I was able to go several applications, days later, with the one dip of baby powder and it really makes my eyelashes longer. Love this and I will use it all of the time. I did not dip my wand I just held it over the sink and poured the baby powder on the wand. I am sure this will work different with all the different types of mascara out there but so far so good.
