My wand is bended. Not sure why. It was suppose to be a straight wand, but it is now a curve wand. I still can work with it. It’s a very thick mascara. Super volumous. Does not give much curves. So you need to curl your lashes. It is better once it is slightly used as it is not so wet. So it is easier to apply. I wouldn’t buy it again, but it’s probably good for people who want dramatic lashes.
