My all time favorite mascara! The only one i use!! My lashes are average in length. They are very fine, but i have a good amount of lashes. This does an amazing job at separating all my lashes while adding volume and length. I can wear it light or full with a couple more coats, very versatile. My eyes are deepset, and my lashes brush the base of my brow bone above my lid. This is the only mascara that doesn't smudge and leave little dashes under my brow!! It wears all day (and night!). It is a little weird to wash off though. Makeup remover wont take it off, just warm water. I shower at night, and just let the water run over my face for a minute. Will never use any other mascara! Ever!!

This is my everyday mascara. I love the small brush, it is great for my short and sparse lower lashes. Does a decent job of thickening my lashes without major clumping. Even though it is not advertised as waterproof, it works like waterproof. The best part is that it does not transfer and after more than 12 hours of wearing, still no smudge. It is pricey but it is worth it. I am already going on my 3rd tube.

I love this mascara. I wouldn't mind if it built a bit more volume which is why I didn't give it a 5. I have been buying this for years and I will continue to buy. I love the tubing. This way when I take it off it is completely gone and no left over smudge under my eyes.

Great EVERYDAY Mascara!

Pros;
- Amazing price for value.
- Lasts on your eyes for long (no joke it stayed perfectly on for me without flaking for a 30 hour flight)
- Doesn't leave flakes.
- Brush is easy to use.
- It takes good 3-4 months before it clumps up in the tube (I've tried a lot of expensive mascaras, YSL, Chanel, LancĂ´me and they all clump up after 1-2 months, you'd want it to last at least 3 months for the price you're paying)...
- LOVE how it only gets removed with warmish-warm water, Its like having the qualities of a waterproof mascara without it being unbearable to remove (I went swimming with it and it was fine)...

Cons;
- There are no cons for me, as this is an every day mascara, it will not make huge volume / length difference to your eyelashes, however it is buildable and you can get a decent look.

So decided to try this mascara instead of my high impact.
Pro
Lovely Brown
Small brush, I got small lashes
Stays put
Minimalist look
Doesn't cause clumps

Con
No big volume
Not easy to remove, it doesn't react on my oil-based eye make-up-remover and it doesn't react on my non-oil based remover it solely reacts on hot water. It doesn't dissolve I just can pick the mascara from my eyelashes like tiny tubes.

This is the first mascara I have bought from clinque, I have extremely sensitive eyes. So most mascaras will cause them to become bloodshot.This one is gentle and doesn't turn my eyes red.I do wish the brush was different. I was born with long eyelashes, so I prefer my mascaras to add thickness and not length. This one makes your lashes quite long, very natural looking. again doesn't make them thick though. overall,Good mascara for sensitive lids/eyes! will be using this for quite a while :)

The first day I wore this, I thought I had found my HG mascara. Now I'm less impressed, but I still think it has some strong features.

PROS
- The slim, slightly tapering brush with its short bristles is my favourite thing about this mascara. Sometimes I wish the wand were a little longer, but overall it's easy to maneuver; especially great for getting at the lashes at the corners of your eyes.
- No clumping.
- Creates a natural look perfect for those who prefer minimalist makeup; subtly defines and lengthens lashes.
- Comes off easily with warm water and gentle massaging with your fingertips - no makeup remover needed, which is great for sensitive eyes/skin.
- A moderate price point between drugstore and high-end mascaras.

CONS
- Some flaking within a couple hours of application.
- The formula is on the wet side, so it often smudges a bit onto my lower lashes and moderately hooded lids before drying. (It's not nearly as wet as Clinique's Naturally Glossy Mascara, though.)
- No volumizing, so this isn't for you if volume is what you want from a mascara.
- While the tubing formula is easy to remove from lashes, it gets EVERYWHERE when washed off, with bits of mascara all over my face and sink. I plan to try using a cotton pad or washcloth soaked in warm water to see if that minimizes the mess. (A nighttime shower could make it less of a pain, too.)

The removal mess and the flaking are what bother me most about this product, but if I can find a way to streamline the clean-up, I might purchase it again because of the wand and natural definition.

UPDATE (AFTER 3 MONTHS):
This mascara definitely performs better in cooler weather. As soon as the temperature gets above 73 degrees F or so, it starts flaking on me. Also, although it is nice not to have to use an eye makeup remover, I'm tired of the mascara getting all over the place as I wash it off, and I feel like I waste a lot of water in the process. I still love the wand, so I'll clean that and save it for using with other formulas I like better.

I have dry eyes, oily lids, and my eyes get irritated when I get seasonal allergies. I read a lot of great reviews onthis product and ordered it from Sephora. I tried it three times and each time I had flaking after only an hour or so. I did not use my eye drops while I had this product on, I wasn't sweating or anything. I just wound up with tiny tubes instead of raccoon eyes, but it still got into my eyes and made them red and irritated. I'm very disappointed. The only good thing was that it dried fast upon application. I was expecting it to stay wet for a long time. And I didn't have to do anything to remove it from my lashes..... Because it all came off. :(

This is a tubing mascara. The best thing about this mascara is that it does not smudge at all. Mascaras nearly always smudge on me terribly even though I avoid applying it on my lower eyelashes. Then even if they don't give me panda eyes they still smudge a bit and my lower lash line looks dark and smudgey. This does not happen at all with this mascara. I find this mascara to be quite wet and you can cover your eyelashes with the product quickly. Due to this wetness I have also found that it isn't great at lifting the lashes and maintaining a curl. The color is quite a nice rich black and helps to define the eyes. Another nice thing about this product is that the brush is very petite and small, allowing you to grasp each individual lash and enhance it. I really like the brush for small hooded eyes like mine. The finish is more on the natural side and provides some nice length. It isn't as great with the volume. However, if you really work at it you can build up the volume. But it takes a while to achieve this. Also I find that it is best to apply coats in quick succession rather than dying in between as once it starts to dry it gets a bit tacky and adheres to the brush and I have actually pulled two eyelashes out while applying mascara. This also has the potential to get clumpy so be careful. I find that while it is good at defining lashes it isn't as good at separating them. My biggest gripe with this mascara is that it isn't as easy to remove as claimed. Not that it is that difficult but I find that warm water alone is not sufficient to remove it and I use a cleansing oil too. Sometimes I can get a really pretty fluttery effect with this mascara but I can't consistently achieve this each time I use it. This isn't my favorite but sometimes I'd rather be safe than sorry, especially if it is a special occasion and I want to feel secure knowing I'll be panda free. Overall it is a pretty nice mascara and the best things about it are the brush and the fact that it's smudge proof. I will repurchase it because it is reliable. I personally prefer volume and drama with my lashes but finding a mascara that does that and doesn't smudge is easier said than done.
