This is the best waterproof mascara I've used. It actually stays on all day. I went swimming for hours and this did not budge. I won't buy again because it was really difficult to take off. But if you need something that will stay this would be my first choice.

I didn't like it at first because it was clumpy and too wet because whenever i applied it, it would make my lashes stick together like spider legs. After a couple of weeks, i took it out again in hopes of it magically working. AND IT DID! So i guess the formula dried up a bit...? The design of the brush is interesting, it had curves on it if you look closely so i think that helped with the application. I have mixed thoughts on the volumizing and lengthening, i wasn't happy with the results but i'll give it some props because it did vamp up my lashes and gave me a really natural look, which i love. As for the waterproof aspect.... i cried in it and it didn't budge; however, beware.. do not rub your eyes. For me, washing it off was an easy task too.. (I just use makeup removing cleanser first then wipe my eyes with some olive oil on a cotton pad) .. my lashes didn't fall out. It also held up my curl extremely well throughout the day, considering how i have straight Asian-born lashes.

I love this mascara ! One of the best I have used !
1.Doesnt smudge after even 24 hours ( yes, I didin t remove my makeup at night).
2. long beautiful black deer lashes.
3.holds the curl amazing! the best I have tried so far !
4. doesnt clump.

My only holdback :
very hard to remove, even with lancome bifacil ! I have noticed that after 2 weeks of using it every day, my lashes started to fall out, 2-3 lashes from every eye !
Now I am using it just on a special ocasion !
Conclusion : top mascara !

I bought this in Duty Free cos they discontinued the Shiseido Lasting Lift, which is fabulous.

So. This makes me have spider lashes on my left eye only, so maybe its just application. I think this is OK, because it doesn't flake or smudge. But it's a bit too heavy for my curl. As in, if I put on 2 or more coats, the curl will get weighed down a little but it's alright.

I like this cos IT DOESN'T IRRITATE MY EYES. Which is so rare in mascaras and eyeliners.

You have to wipe the wand gently to get rid of excess product before using if not it will clump like crazy.

I found that the best way to use this mascara is to curl your lashes, then wipe off the excess mascara on the wand and apply one very light coat, let it dry, then curl again and apply 2-3 coats. O M G, amazing curl power, held my curl for more than 14 hours, and doesn't smudge at all.

I really like this mascara. It gives me very pretty lashes, without clumping. Lasting power is good too, doesn't last all day but almost.
Edit: I have found that only tubing mascaras last all day on me and am now loving Becca ultimate mascara.

I love Hypnose mascara just not the wp version. All the lovely, "Audrey" like "flutteriness," lashes that fan out, are why I love the original so, and dislike this one as none of those characteristics are to be found in the wp version. I am shocked how very different a product this is on me and would never have spent the money knowing it really is no better and certainly not much different, than any wp mascara you'd find in the ds except that I have found a few ds wp mascaras I like better. Lancome mascara is not the most expensive in the department store, but by no means a cheap thrill, so if you are going to get Hypnose its for the aforementioned loveliness that most if not any, ds mascaras can impart. That said, you want the non wp kind, especially if this is your first go at Hypnose.

I have used the Hypnose Waterproof Mascara for years and I continue to buy it again and again. I have very small lashes but this mascara helps to create volume for my lashes and does not smudge or run. It stays well on my lashes even through tears. The mascara brush does have a tendancy to clump as the mascara gets older which isn't helpful when I am applying it as it creates a unnatural look on my lashes. Other than this issue it is a good waterproof mascara.

Lancome's mascaras which I tell my friends never use it because it never hold curls and make it super straight and I tried the newest one virtuouse really bad on me,mine is thick long but straight that I really need to use the curler quite a long time,well, I tried a lot of mascaras,american,european and japanese one and I think there are some japanese ones are very good,one is called fairydrops that is only found in japan and hong kong...long,thick and holds curls and rarely smudges...but I loves to try new things,then maybelline great lashes,well,it is kind of natural that only you know your lashes have some mascara on then revlon smudges and smudges and never hold curl too but I tried this one well the bottle is sort of cute not bad at all but it works quite well, it makes mine light and kind of natural on me and separates well,but it definitely not the best for me,it is really natural and I want something dramatic but I will use it for daytime at night it is totally not dramatic at all

This is the best wp mascara I have ever used, and I've tried MANY! My HG mascara is the Tridimensionale water-resistant from Collistar, but that one is def not water-resistant enough for me, as I sometimes end up with panda eyes. So I started using Great Lash wp from Maybelline, which most certainly is VERY waterproof, but that didn't do anything to my lashes except color them. I nagged the SA at my local drugstore, and she came up with this one, according to her every customer who bought this was very happy with the volume/wp combo. I have to say that although I'm not blown away, it is LOADS better than all my previous wp mascara's. The long thin brush is perfect for me, as I really hate those big, fat brushes which seem to be the fashion these days (mascara ending up all over my eyelids, annoying!!). The reasons for not giving it 5 lippies: too expensive (28,50 in euro's!), and I would've liked a little more volume. My bankmanager will not approve, but will re-purchase :)

EDIT: 3 years down the line, I never buy this, there are far better wp mascaras now.
