I have the sample version. Great mascara, doesn't come off unless I wash it off, which is easy. I tried spraying water on my face and it didn't budge. However it doesn't really volumise or lengthen which is a slight disappointment, but for a daily long wearing mascara it's great. It separates the lashes nicely. I tried using this with a primer (not Clinique, but Cybercolours) and it looks longer and fuller, but I looked like I had 5 lashes as they got stuck together. Still, it stays and washes out easily. I'll buy it if I can't find another long wearing mascara like this.
FINALLY found a great mascara that doesn't smudge, smear or flake! I've tried them all and this is the best. Nice lengthening, natural daytime mascara. Put it together with the smokey brown eye pencil and the GWP Butter pecan eyeshadow and your brown eyes look WOW without having to look in the mirror every half hour to see if you have raccoon eyes. Definate repurchase. PS a little wierd to remove but I take cotton squares in very warm water and let it sit on my eyes for 30 seconds and it comes off no problem!
I just bought this mascara from my local clinique counter. So far so good, I recently purchased Lash Blast (Covergirl) in waterproof, let me tell ya it will take heaven & hades to get that stuff off. But back to this product. I like it, as a mascara that I can build with, but I wouldn't suggest putting on more than two coats of mascara, because then you will get the spider legs look with this mascara. That is why I gave it a four instead of a five. With two coats, I get the volume & length that I want for a more dramatic look day/evening. The small mascara brush is great, it helps to get in the corner lashes without ending up with a mascara dot.
It comes off pretty easy although I use my EL take it away make up remover, as far as I know this mascara isnt waterproof but I haven't had any problems. I like this mascara a dramatic day look, or one coat for just a on the go day look. Although I am still partial to my natural glossy for day. continued >>
This is a great mascara as it doesn't smudge/transfer/travel at all through exercise or humid weather! It's the only mascara that has worked for me since I have very oily lids and even all the 'good' waterproof ones smudge on me. It gives very good definition to lashes and gives the right amount of oomph - one coat for day-time wear, more coats for evening. Occasionally it does give a few clumps, but if you work fast enough with the wand you can usually comb them out. It does tend to dry pretty quickly so work on one eye at a time if you want to add volume, as it's hard to return later to add another coat as it may clump. Talking about the wand - it's small and so absolutely easy to get to every single lash especially if you have small eyes like me! If you get mascara on your eyelids while applying it's super easy to clean off with a cotton tip. Removing is also super easy, just wash your face/eyelids as you would normally and it comes of in little flakes/strings. Only 4 lippies out of 5 as after a long day, I occasionally find a few small flakes under my eye. Overall, a great mascara and would purchase again unless I find a better one!
This mascara gave me the worst clumpy lashes I've ever seen. After applying two coats, it looked like I had five ginormous eyelashes, all of which were thick at the base and spindly at the tip. Awful, awful, awful.
it's terrible! this thing clumps like mad! the only thing i like about it was that it wasn't a hassle to remove and it wasn't a messy application, other than that, it doesn't apply smoothly. the volume is not even worth mentioning!
This mascara is just kind of meh for me. It doesn't smudge, which is great, but it doesn't really look like I've got mascara on either. Even Naturally Glossy (which is great, btw) looks more mascara-y than this. I like the wand, and the products isn't terrible, but it's definitely not worth the money that I paid for it.
I got this in a sample size from Sephora. I put it on and thought, yeah, pretty decent coverage. Not super long, but adds some length and also decent volume. As others have mentioned, it is truly "long wearing formula" as it's called. Which unfortunately was really not fun at the end of the day. I really want a clean face before I go to bed. I used baby oil, soap, cleanser and finally was able to rub it off with several lashes - grrrr! So, if you're planning on going into the Perfect Storm with Mark Wahlberg and George Clooney - this is *the* mascara for you! However, if easy removal is even a remote requirement for you, keep looking.
**Update** Seriously, other than soaking my lashes in warm water, I don't know how to get this stuff off. If anyone comes up with anything good, let me know.
I love this mascara. This is the first tubing mascara I've tried and I'm sold on it. I wear contact lenses so my eyes are constantly moist AND live in hot and humid weather, so I have never had any mascara stay completely put, including my previous HG, Hypnose Waterproof, by Lancome.
This mascara does not budge, and has worn with me through long days, tears and sleep. Highly recommended, I can't wait to try the new, Asian market, lash curling version!
Edit : I am now using the curling version (bought it on strawberrynet), and it's even better! This makes my eyes look more wide-awake than the original version. I'm not sure how much of a difference this would make on straight lashes, since mine are short but fairly curled, but on me this looks nicer + same great lasting power.
With the right apply the best mascara I've ever erver used !!!
Easy to wear, easy to wash off, bye bye remover takeing of ist a pleasure! It hold's curl's, lengthens an look's amazing!
First mascara that I can use on my lower lashes ever !!!
Wedding tears resistant!!!
Update: Three day's ago I've just forgotten that am wearing this mascara and used my Avene Extremely gentle Cleanser all over the face and rubbed it a bit my eye's included and the mascara got off beautifully without any hot water and left my lashes super duper clean!
