Yes this is indeed waterproof and will stand up to the sweatiest workouts BUT it's very heavy and sticky on lashes. Hard to get off. Just gave me OK volume but lashes stuck together. Will not buy again.

I bought this as a recommendation from a youtuber because she has short Asian lashes that hardly holds a curl like me. I liked it enough, and the waterproof version did help my eyelashes stay curled. It also made my lashes longer and thicker which was nice.

I've come to realize the mascara I have used for past decade just isn't holding my curl the way I would like and it is time to see what else is out there. I have long, think, dark lashes - my problem is that they are stick straight. Ir really needed a mascara to hold the curl. This one does hold well. It adds volume but not a ton of length. It is a very wet formula. I wish it were a little dryer. I'm not a huge fan of the applicator. It is very big. Even the tip is very big making it hard to get those inner corner lashes without getting the very wet formula all over my eyelid. I also don't like the way the brush is hinged. I feel like I don't have much control.

I really liked this mascara all in all and I will purchase again but will also keep looking.

I bought this on a whim when my Annabelle mascara was really irritating my left eye and had to remove it.
I like the Volum' Express The Falsies Black Drama but it's not available in a waterproof formula so I got the regular Volum' Express The Falsies waterproof version instead.
I'm glad I got it on sale for $4.99 CAD because this mascara smudges on me. It's definitely not waterproof.
Perhaps I used too much eye cream that morning (anything emollient around the eyes will break down mascara) but suffice to say I wasn't pleased with the smudges towards the end of the day.
Removal was okay with an oil based eye makeup remover. (I just soak a Q-tip in Clinique's take the day off eye makeup remover and stroke the lashes until nearly all of the mascara is gone)

It does keep the curl in place as with other waterproof mascaras but that's the only positive.
It gives great length more than anything else.

Overall, a big miss and no re-purchase.

My favorite mascara! I love how it gives me length, curl, and separates my eyelashes so well without clumping. This mascara doesn't smudge at all and last, like, all day even after i washed my face and took a nap with it. The only cons of this mascara are, it doesn't really give me the volume i expected and you should wait for a while to add some more layer to avoid clumping. But it does give me the great lashes look as everyone keeps on complimenting my lashes.

This is my hg mascara. It does everything I need it to do. keeps my lashes curled gives me length and volume and out doesn't smudge. I've never used a mascara that didn't smudge on my bottom lashes til I tried this one. It even lives up to its falsies name, my mom keeps asking me if I'm wearing false lashes. It's just this mascara!

Holy grail mascara. The wand doesn't hurt when I apply and it curls and volumes my thin, straight lashes very well. It does smudge a bit if I fall asleep with it on, but other than that it will not smudge or flake. The formula is not too wet when you open it and it doesn't make my lashes feel crunchy but holds the curl all day. It does dry out fairly quickly, in around 2 months, and the tube is a little smaller so you do get less product, but mascara should be replaced relatively often anyway to avoid a nasty eye infection. This also makes it more travel friendly if you're looking for more free space in your makeup bag.

Definitely recommend this mascara. Great cheap, everyday mascara for us ladies with more frail lashes.

This mascara really helps to give volume to my thin asian lashes. This could clump your lashes if you apply multiple layers at a single time. If you're not going for that, give it some time to dry before applying your next coat. Not much lengthening going on. It lasts all day on me. And indeed, it does live up to being waterproof. But it flakes when I've worn it too long --- probably at about 5 hours or so. But then again, my country isn't exactly makeup friendly. It's pretty much humid all year 'round and I really tend to get myself in situations where I'd sweat a little (ok, maybe more than a little). Sometimes, I'd forget to remove my makeup (which I've worn all day) and sleep with it on a few hours, and it'd still be there. Though, not as strong as it would have been, initially.

If you want to thicken your lashes, this is a good drugstore mascara. If you're into lengthening them like me, go find another one. I can't compare this to other mascaras, 'cause it was the first one I bought (and have worn several times decent enough to make a review). It's a mascara that's newbie and budget friendly. Mine's starting to get a little dryer now, and I've had it for probably a year or so.
