Love this. I prefer tube mascaras, as all others leave me looking like a raccoon. This has the added bonus of the primer on the other tip. I love twofers! I works as well as the other tube mascaras I've tried...Blinc, Clinique's...and it is cheaper. Just wish I could find it in a brown as well.
This is the best mascara I've tried so far! It doesn´t smudge at all and you can wash it off using just warm water. I always curl my lashes before applying mascara and this mascara holds the curl all day long...and all night long! You can even sleep with it on and wake up the next day with fabulous lashes!
This mascara is a must if you don't want ANY smudging at all. It doesn't give the best volume or separating, but it's my every day for work mascara simply because it does stay and no flaking at all. It's easy to take off with warm water. What I do is rise with warm water, then kind of gently pinch off the 'tubes' of mascara off my eyes. It sounds weird, but you'll get used to it. I really love using this on my lower lashes cause the color doesn't slip or flake at all. I highly recommend this.
I love this mascara. its like extensions for my eyelashes. they look about 4 centimeters bigger.
Ok in all the mascaras that I have used I rate this one being the best I've come across. It goes on and stays on all day even in rain I can feel confident that it wont smudge or flake off like most mascaras do after a few hours. It comes off really easily and cleanly which is what I love best about it. I find that for best volumising effect is to hold the primer/mascara wand on a verticle so you're only coating your lashes with the tips using an upward and outward stroke and then go over the lashes quickly with the wand on a horizontal as you normally do to even out the product over your lashes. The other trick is to know exactly when to apply the mascara after the primer has been applied (about 30 seconds) and apply your mascara in quick even strokes to prevent clumping as the mascara does dry up a bit quickly.
I just finished this tube, but have no plans to repurchase. I really liked the primer as it added a tonne of volume, separation, length, held the curl, and made my teeny tiny sparse lower lashes look amazing. I was also really impressed with how easy the tubes removed with warm water and my facial cleanser without ruining my lashes. What I really hated about this product was the mascara as it was dry, flaky, and barely coated the tubes. I ended up using other brands of mascara with a wetter formula and had achieved fantastic results. The main reason I have no intention of repurchasing is I'm new to the whole lash primer world and desire to try other products. I would prefer to purchase a whole tube of great primer then waste my money on a product that includes a great primer and horrible mascara. If L'Oreal just sold the primer/extended beauty tubes separately I would not only buy, but stock up.
Absolutely love this mascara. No, it doesn't give you really, really voluminous lashes, but frankly, for me, that look isn't really appropriate for everyday wear - this is perfect for everyday mascara. It absolutely does not come off with tears or sweat - but easily removes with warm water, as it states on the package. I've never curled my lashes, so that's not an issue for me. This is great stuff, I hope they continue to make it.
I really like this mascara. When I want a little extra oomph...I put my Laura Mercier mascara over this mascara (it's very black and eye defining)...I did it as a test, wondering if adding a regular mascara over the tubing would negate the benefits of non smudging tubes. Surprisingly it didn't. I curl my lashes before AND agree that you need to curl them again after this mascara....the curl really lasts forever doing it this way.
So, tubing mascaras finally made it to the drug store realm. They're quite well known as department store territory. I actually prefer this to my $24 KissMe, as I actually have the option to wear the white (volumizing) primer or not. I actually used KissMe for a good 6 years, and when I ran out of my last tube of it a few months back, I decided to try the L'Oreal. I'm not looking back, that's for sure. If you've never tried a tubing mascara, this is what you're in for: Mascara that applies just like mascara should, yet does not flake or bleed throughout the day. I've heard some say "but it's too hard to get off! Makeup removers don't work!" and THAT is the beauty of tubing mascaras. You don't need makeup remover, and if you know how, they're easy peasy to remove. What's the secret? Warm water. Yep, just let them soak in warm water for about 30 seconds or so and then wipe them away. The tubes will actually stay intact and slide off your lashes whole. If you just stand under your shower stream and let the water pull them off, you don't even have to touch your eyes. The downsides are that apparently lashes don't hold a good curl with this (or any) tubing mascara and that there are two steps and you HAVE to cover the primer (white) with the mascara completely. Or you can do what I do when I'm in a hurry. Skip the base, and sacrifice a bit of thickness. Oh, and also if you apply 42 coats of your normal mascara to get those big bushy tarantulas crawling from your eyes, you're probably not going to get that look from this. It's not meant to be applied in a ton of coats. It does give good length and volume, though, on its own merit and when compared with KissMe.
I work very long hours, and, the issue I have with a lot of mascaras, especially during the summer, is that, waterproof or not, they smudge, and I end up either looking like a punk rocker or a panda at the end of the day. Not with this, however. It lives up to the ads, you apply it, it stays on til you take it off, and you don't have to fuss about much to get it off, just my Purity and warm water and a washcloth, and off it goes!
I saw some other reviewers talking about the application, it's very simple, apply the white (primer) to each upper lash, then each lower lash. Let it sit about ten seconds, then apply the black coat same way and you're done!
