Love this waterproof mascara! I was so disappointed by Maybelline's Define-a-Lash that I wasn't looking forward to this but I was so pleasantly surprised! The wand is easy to put back in the tube, my lashes aren't clumpy and it lasts all day! It's also not a chore to wash this off at night. I really love this mascara - I don't look like I have spider lashes and it's much better than the previous waterproof mascara I tried by Cover Girl, Fantastic Lash. It's fabulous and I would rebuy it in a heartbeat! it's the best waterproof mascara I have ever used!
Sooooooooo goopy! This mascara has gone to the clumps, even after wiping the excess off with a tissue. Also, it's real easy to get all over your eyelids even while applying it meticulously. It fights to stay on your lashes even after numerous wipes of makeup remover.
The mascara does not clump on me. Helps to lengthen and even hold the curl of my lashes well. Will definately buy more of this!
I didn't believe in the rubber brush hype before... but now I do. It really does not clump. The brush is great! You get definition and some length, but little to no volume. As for the formula... well, it starts smudging a little after ~6 hours for me. It does take some time for oil-based make-up remover to dissolve the mascara off your lashes though. Another thing is that I get little curly mascara bits on the ends of my lashes that curl *downward* instead of up with my lashes. Aagh! I will probably try Volume Exact next instead of repurchasing, because I'd like a little more volume.
(Edit: if you apply a regular-brush watery mascara with a light hand, the results are not much different. I went back to Full-n-Soft and it lasts longer and gives a little more volume & curl.)
Initially I was quite pleased by the application of this mascara. My lashes were lengthened, the formula added some volume, and the lashes were separated and not too crunchy-feeling. It didn't take the curl out of my lashes all night. Unfortunately, I had problems with its longevity. I put this on at 5:30 pm and drove through the dry bitter Ohio cold last night to a party. The house I went to was chilly (I think the owners were trying to save money by turning down the thermostat). By 9pm, this mascara had smeared under my eyes and flaked onto my cheeks. Given the above scenario, the performance was NOT due to environmental heat and humidity; quite the opposite, in fact, and a good waterproof mascara should not have been so stressed.
I've been using so many different mascaras for so long, I'm so happy I found my HG! It truly darkens every lash, stays there all day (I wear contacts and have watery eyes; I haven't tried the non-waterproof version of this), and really lengthens the lashes and thickens them a little. A few extra layers of this when I'm going out and it looks like I have falsies on! It's a little dramatic for everyday for me...if you curl your lashes properly and wear this, you've got eyelashes you can see across a room (in a good way!). For daytime I stick to Maybelline's Waterproof Full 'n' Soft, but I swear by this stuff too!
I would recommend this to anyone who needs length, and i think the waterproof formula is great. I have REALLY oily skin/lids so every mascara i use ends up on the bottom of my eyes by the end of the day =( I'm now using volume exact though bc I hvae thin, short, asian lashes and this didn't make my lashes dark enough .
This has got to be the HG of mascaras for me! It separates and makes my lashes a mile long. The waterproof version is much better than the non-waterproof. It also comes off easily with my eye makeup remover. I use the brown/black for everyday and the black for evening/special events as I prefer a more natural look for day.
This mascara seriously wont budge at all, even when you're trying to take it off!
Much like it's regular version, this mascara does everything, but clump! Lengthens, defines, and if you use properly you can even get some volume out of it.
I don't use this anymore. I hate the fact that it's so difficult to take off and everytime I do try my lashes fall out! Ugh!! I'm totally sticking to the regular formula. If anyone wants it, it's up for swap.
I have never gushed about a makeup product before.
I have four mascaras in my bag which were failing me.
I picked this one up on a whim and love it.
The wand is unique and makes application simple.
No clumps, not too much buildup.
Lashes look well defined, even lowers.
Stays on thru rain, crying and shower.
Will buy this item again and again.
