Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara

I was in Barney's a while back and bought a couple of things, and I got a sample of this mascara.  I fell in love almost immediately, which means that I was fairly well traumatized when I found out that it costs $70.00!  On to the next mascara...although I fully intend to ask for another sample very soon.

Givenchy Noir Couture 4-in-1 Mascara

Last week, I went to Sephora, and this was the mascara recommended to me by the child in clown makeup who latched onto me when I walked in.  I found the brush terribly intriguing, but Givenchy has been known to do this to me before:  catch my attention with something shiny, i.e. a strangely-shaped wand, and then completely disappoint me when it comes to everyday use. 

Such is the case, yet again.  This mascara makes my eyelashes clump together like crazy.  "Separation" was the one specification I insisted on when I listed off the attributes I look for in a mascara; it's more important than lengthening or volumizing for me because my eyelashes aren't short or thin.  They are, however, prone to clumps, so I need a mascara that won't exacerbate that.  Moreover, even if I wanted lengthening or volumizing, I'd prefer DiorShow over this Givenchy because to be honest, I didn't even observe any noticeable lengthening or volumizing.  It mostly just colored my eyelashes brown and then made them stick together.  It didn't curl or anything.
