I have been looking for a long lasting mascara forEVER. And yes, this mascara stays all day and leaves no marks under my eyes which I hate so much. So it is raccoon eyes - free! Nice. It gives me decent volume without WOW factor, holds curls OK but not so spectacular..and last but not least, it lengthens my lashes but weird enough, it tends to make my lashes straight (I have curly lashes).

Anyhoo, I am satisfied with it for the time being. Because I havent found a new mascara that doesnt flake or smudge like Lash Power. This one works perfect. And last but not least, I get lazy sometimes to remove my mascara because I need to wash it off with warm water and sometimes it just takes too long to get the job done while you are tired and sleepy. But hey, you cant have it all, right? :-)

When I first bought this mascara, I was so excited, they make it sound great- "Vows to look pretty for 24 hours without a smudge or smear. Lasts through rain, sweat, humidity, tears. Yet the formula removes easily with warm water.' I was like wow this couldn't be possible?
Yet it was. It stayed on, made my eyelashes look sooo long and seemed to get the small ones I never could because of the smaller brush you get with it. But I don't think its that easy to remove, it doesn't seem good for your lashes. I never use waterproof mascara because I find most waterproof mascaras don't come off and you end up having this build up of mascara and eventually you lose lashes. The fact this claimed to come off easily with warm water, I decided to give it again, and yes it did only need warm water but it was not one quick wash, I had to continuouslly wash my eyes, and it would slowly come off in clumps, which would then get in my eyes. One of my eyes actually started to get sore, and I noticed it was really red and a bit swallon inside on the skin near my bottom eyelashes. This is when I stopped using this mascara and this is why I won't use the mascara ever again. My eye felt puffy and was sore, if a beauty product is harming me especially my eyes because they are such a sensitive area, then I won't use it.
Apart the that the mascara was a good mascara, but the way it came off didn't seem right to me, it seemed very unsafe.

This is the only mascara I can use that does not flake, smudge, or wear off until I want it off. I put mascara through one of the greatest tests of integrity- I have straight Asian lashes that are quite long, AND I keep them straight, because I don't always like the curled look. So, my lashes are constantly rubbing on my undereye area- smudging is almost inevitable. But this passed! Long, glossy, moderate-full volume, lengthens, separates, and super black. I always have an extra tube for when the one I'm using runs out.

All other mascaras gave me panda-eyes, no matter were they waterproof or not. This one is amazing! My lashes stay flexible and natural all day long. I wear it every day and it is already my 4th tube. One of my favorites!

I love this mascara for daywear! The mascara wand is perfect, as it's very small, so you get every single lash covered. It washes off very easily, as it's made to wash off with warm water. I will not re-purchase however, as it's not enough drama for me. (I love the diorshow even for daywear:))

This mascara made my lashes look just okay. I didn't get the false lash, lengthening effect other reviewers were lucky enough to get. On me this was more of an average, daily wear mascara look. Applied too heavily I did manage to get a spider leg look though. It did not hold a curl AT ALL either.

It does last all day. But like many other tubing type mascaras that I've tried, it's a real pain to remove at night. Eventually I could get a lot of it off but I was left with red raw skin around my eyes and some missing lashes. And usually enough residue to make the next day's mascara application a gummy clumpy mess.

Since I paid so much for it I figured I'd better get some use out of it so I was trying to continue using it on days when I knew I'd be outside in rain/snow (since it won't run down my face). However the removal was such a hassle I got fed up with it and ended up just throwing it away.

Definitely will not rebuy.

I love this mascara. One of the best i've ever used. Make my lashes longer naturally, doesn't clump (even all day), no need makeup remover to clean it (only use warm water). I'm really falling in love with this one. Because for daily use i prefer have long lashes, but not too much volume (my lashes short T_T). I really recommend 2 buy this mascara if u love to have natural long lashes. But if u're searching 4 a volumize mascara, better not buy this product ;)

I love this mascara. It is my favorite of all time. It doesnt clump,crumble,smudge,or fade-ever-this is a big deal. The brush is really small-bigger is not always better-so it can get all the little lashes in between.I could cry all day and it stays. It doesnt come off with regular eye makep remover. But its formulated to wash away easily with warm water while gently massaging-not pulling hard- straight out to help remove it. It makes my lashes alot longer as the fluid actually dries and adds these little fibers to the ends-almost like having false ones on but not too big.Your lashes stay soft also. It looks so pretty and natural. I didnt get any burning in my eyes with this either. I actually remove it while im washing my face with warm water and the mild cleanser from clinique.

It's too early to rave about this product, but I've used it for about a week now and I have no complaints. I get longer, defined, more voluminous (no spider legs!), sweat and oil proof, all day mascara. It does clump the tiniest bit, but that is easily fixable with some combing.

It's not a "Check out my long, luscious lashes!" mascara, but for everyday wear, it's great. It is a tubing mascara, so it will hold its own against oily lids (which I have). All other mascaras I have tried, besides blinc, have smudged all over my under eye area, which I think is tacky and/or made my eyes water.

The price here in California is $14, which is a lot less than blinc ($24) and I would gladly pay it again for this mascara.

I'm also okay with the ingredients. There is an impressive amount of natural ingredients and the parabens are all the very bottom of the list. It's not vegan, but it is non irritating.

Update 29 March 2010: It flakes after it's been open for a month+ of use and started irritating my eyes. Also, removal is more messy than before - no more tubes - messy, sloppy flakes are the norm now. I tossed it and bought blinc. We'll see how that goes.

It's the best mascara! It doesn't smudge, clump or flake. It goes on smoothly and comes off easily with warm water. It doesn't come off very well if using eye makeup remover though, but warm water works great! I also noticed when I wash it off, I didn't lose any eyelashes unlike my old Lancome Hypnose. The wand is small and precise! Definitely recommend this to everyone!!!
