This is a pretty good mascara, I tell you. It elongates my lashes and doesn't look clumpy at all! It really doesn't budge, smudge, nor even run when I get teary-eyed. And more importantly, it is one of the few mascaras that do NOT give me styes after repeated usage. This one is indeed a good buy.
I am Chinese, I have short, straight, and STUBBORN eyelashes. There have only bee one other mascara that has worked this well on my lashes... And the other one was not waterproof.
I love this mascara. It's that simple. It doesn't run, it gives me volume AND length. When I use it, people ALWAYS keep staring at my lashes and assume it's fake. LOL and this is coming from someone who barely has any lashes. lol
This is my new favorite waterproof mascara. I have oily skin around the eyes, so I don't bother with non-waterproof mascaras. The color is a rich black, it stays put all day, and does not flake. It lengthens and thickens better than my old Bare Escentuals waterproof mascara. One tube lasts a loooooong time. Comes off easily with extra virgin olive oil (the one natural ingredient that works better at removing makeup than any official makeup remover out there!).
Didn't smudge, didn't clump, and with one stroke of the wand, stays on all day.
Didn't clump,separated my lashes nicely BUT, smeared and bleed way too much. I'm sure maybelline makes a better Mascara than this one. For the $16 price tag I expected a much better mascara.
