I love, love this mascara. I live in Singapore and here, even the drugstore products go up to $20 like Maybelline, Lor'eal, Revlon. So when I saw that this was 7 bucks, I immediately logged on to makeupallley and saw the reviews. I tried it on and I have NEVER been so pleasantly suprised. I have no need for falsies with this and it's really buildable and not clumpy at all. It stays put all throughout the day. Removing it with Olive oil is a breeze. I recommend it to everyone.
I would definitely say that this product is great for smudging, it's black and smooth. Creamy and does not irritate or get into your eyes, great for contact lens wearers. However, if you were looking for something that does not run, this would not be the product for you. At least, not for me. For the price, I think the Revlon Colourstay eyeliner would have been a better bet for me. It has to be sharpened, though, which I prefer. So for those who love them smokey eyes, try it! For those who like it minimal, you could get a better line with the blacktrack fluidline.

I used this product a few years ago when I was still a teenager, I remember throwing it out even when I am not done with the whole bottle yet but I don't remember why. NOW I DO! This cream smells pleasant enough, it takes a long time for the white cast to seep into your skin. First day, I saw a slight difference, my skin was dewy. Turns out it was not, it was oil! Thinking it was my foundation, I skipped makeup totally but the same thing happened! That's not all. After so long of trying to clear my outbreaks, pimples started popping up and I remember why I threw it out! NEVER EVER BUY THIS PRODUCT. Though relatively inexpensive, I would suggest buying some other moisturizer from the drugstore. I am so angry! Now, got to soothe my poor skin.
