I've tried a lot of tubing mascaras and this is one of my favourites. I mostly use tubing mascaras because anything else even if it's supposedly smudgeproof or waterproof, smudges on me. I find the tiny brush is actually very easy to work with. I have short, fine lashes and with the huge brushes that many people like I often end up with mascara all over my eye area. This mascara doesn't clump, stays on all day (some slight flaking, but in my experience that happens with all tubing mascaras) and is easy to remove with cotton wool and warm water. The only reason this gets a 4 is because it really doesn't lengthen much, and clinique does claim it is lengthening. This mascara is a great everyday, natural-look product for me, for a little more volume and length, I like ModelCo Lash Xtend. Also, this mascara actually lasted 2-3 months before it started to dry out and go clumpy, which is a record for me. If you find you need to brush out clumps or separate lashes, do so immediately (ie, don't wait until you've applied to both eyes, or several layers) as it dries very quickly and tends to flake if you try to brush through your lashes after it has started to dry.

Mostly I really like this mascara. It doesn't smudge easily and gives my lashes more length and curl than any other mascara I've ever tried. The only thing I don't really like is that it sometimes makes my lashes clump together rather than separating and defining them.

I generally don't think i ll ever need to buy another brand of mascara again!! I love all the CLinique mascara for the simple reason that they never smudge, and never run. They are reliable!!!

Recently I ran out of this mascara and started looking for another one. I have no idea WHY! After trying 7 different formulas, I went back to what I will now call my HG! I'm going to keep this simple and make you a list ;)

1. Defines my lases with no need for a comb
2. Makes my lashes look SOOOO long
3. No smudging! The mascara comes off in clumps with warm water and leaves nothing behind under my eyes. But do not take that to mean that it flakes throughout the day! It stays about 18 hours.

I already have thick lashes, so I don't look for volume. I can't speak on that.

I like this mascara. I haven't noticed any flakes on my cheeks from wearing this during the day. This mascara defines all my lashes without weighing down my lashes. Have no problem keeping my lashes curled. I have oily eyelids and this mascara has not smudged on me... Unlike Clinique lash doubling mascara which will give me racoon eyes, even with a lash primer... Best of all, lash power really is easy to take off. Water and gentle rubing, will take off the mascara. I have tried Blinc mascara and like the formula better, but it costs more than Clinique. I will continue to buy this mascara.

I really liked this product at first. It gave me long black nice defined lashes . Then it started crumbling into my eyes. It is a tubing mascara but as far as I know they re meant to last reasonably long.
I like how you can just wash it off with warm water, but there always seemed to be residue. I resorted to using it just on my lower lashes which worked well for a while, but it still gets in my eyes. This would be a nightmare for contact lens wearers.

This is a great daytime mascara, it really lives up to its staying power. I never ever have panda eyes with this and it opens my eyes up and doesn't clump up at all when i put it on. I work outside and train a lot outdoors as well so i need something that i dont have to worry about coming off and this is it. I recommended this to my mum as she goes swimming alot and was fed up of the panda eyes she got form her other mascaras and she thinks its the best mascara she has ever used. I dont however use this for evenings as it doesnt give enough volume and true wow factor which i like to give my eyes in the evening.

LOVE this mascara! It is the ONLY mascara I have found that stays put. All other mascaras I have tried, waterproof etc, all smudge under my eyes and it drives me mad. This one doesn't.
It comes off fairly easily in the shower when I wash my face, or with a face wipe.

Only downside is when you've had it for a while it starts to flake into your eyes a bit, and it does sting. So I have never managed to use one up completely as I think I get about 3 months good use out of it before it starts flaking.

It's a good price as it does what it says and lasts ages.

Lashes look longer, and prettier. Not hugely volumising, but personally I'm not very bothered by this. Would rather have a mascara that stayed on my lashes, rather than smeared under them.

I try other mascaras from time to time, but keep coming back to this one!

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.
