This is a good mascara for going out/being active, but I recommend using it on top of a regular mascara instead of by itself. When I've used it alone it's basically glued itself to my lashes even with makeup remover. When I use another mascara under it, it tends to come off a bit easier. Sort of defeats the purpose though. I will say this: It's definitely long lasting.
I absolutely LOVE this line, especially the reconstruct. I color my hair alot (naturally light brown, but my inner blonde cries out on a regular basis) but this shampoo is great because it helps my base color last longer which let's me add about 1-2 weeks to my normal coloring cycle. Add that in with the sulfate free restorative-ness and my hair feels INCREDIBLE! I see that some users are reporting that they're seeing oiliness in the hair, but I have to say I've never experienced that with this line. As a matter of fact, I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week and all of the oiliness I experience is from shaking it at Zumba class. :) It's a little more expensive that drugstore brand shampoos, but only a little. Most of the shampoos on the shelf will run you $3-6 for something decent, so $7 isn't a big deal to me. Plus I save money in the long run because I don't have to wash my hair as frequently or visit my stylist for touchups.
