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!!!

Absolutely Amazing. This Mascara stays on perfectly all day, no matter what! Over the last days since I've got this I've bawled my eyes out (twice in one day), went biking, touched my eyes (almost all day - ick allergies) and took a nap. This doesn't smudge, doesn't make panda eyes, doesn't clump and only flakes a very little bit, as well as not coming off onto my pillow. And best of all, all you need is hot water to get it off. It takes a little bit of work to get off, but since when I normally put on mascara it ends up taking three days to completely wear off (with washing I never manage to get it all) this is stellar. Not super-model eyes but it defines and it looks natural, something I appreciate more than something that looks like fake lashes. The only downside is how small the tube is for the price.

This mascara makes my lashes long, dark, and separated. It goes on with no clumps, lasts all day and does not smudge. Unfortunately, it is a real pain in the --- to remove at night. My poor eyes, my poor lashes. In the end analysis, it is not worth all the trouble at the end of the day. Too bad.

This is a great, trusty mascara. No fancy effects, but one coat is perfect for day and it can be worked into the roots to build up a smokey eye with eyeliner.
Its staying power justifies the name - POWER! It is waterproof, and just as importantly, oilproof so other make up (eye creams etc) don't make it shift or smudge either. This style of waterproof mascara doesn't smudge - and any small flakes are much easier to handle than streaks!
I used to use Clinique Naturally Glossy, which applied really well, and was terribly pretty but wore off after a few hours. Whilst Power doesn't go on as smoothly, it stays on. Clumping is minimal - nothing significant - and I've found it varies slightly from tube to tube.
A mainstay in my makeup kit.

I love this mascara! Mascara is the one product I'm a little obsessive about. I look 12 without it so I'm constantly looking for the perfect formula. I bought Lash Power when I was pregnant for the long-wearing benefit. I was so surprised that it gave me the dramatic lash look I love! I put this on in the morning and it looks freshly applied until I take it off. My lashes look full, long, separated and shiny. I love how easily it comes off with warm water and that it never leaves smudges on my pillow if I forget to take it off. I've rarely purchased a mascara more than once, but I'm on my 6th tube of this!

This mascara wears well, but comes off a bit too easily. Other "tube" mascaras I've used have not come off while swimming - this one has. The water you're swimming in has to be cold for this mascara to stay on. Not one for the tropics.
The formula is lightweight and very smooth, and goes on easily with the well-designed brush. If you don't angle the brush the right way, it can "blob" on your lashes, but this is easily avoided and it combs out fine.
It gives a "natural", everyday look - not really volumising, doesn't hold a curl, and no lengthening. This would be an OK mascara for those with already-good lashes, but not for one like me with straight and sparse ones.
