Unfortunately, as this product started to dry out in the tube, which normally makes mascaras better...This mascara turned into an absolute NIGHTMARE! The only way I can describe it is that as it dried out, so did the waterproof quality. It really is no longer water proof. Which for me translated into a smudgy, runny, flaky mess all over my eyes within 2 hours of wear. I have no idea what happened. Nothing besides 'time' changed in my routine. I had to buy another truly waterproof mascara to use as a topper. (I didn't just want to chuck it out and have to get something new anyway.)
I really cant recommend this anymore if this is how this mascara ages. Unless you don't need a waterproof formula.
(In The Color Raven)
For the past 3 years or so, I have been searching for a more natural or organic mascara that doesn't run, smudge, flake or otherwise completely fail throughout the day. I have a rare eye/vision disorder that makes 99% of mascara completely un-usable and flatout dangerous for me to use. So I have tried...everything. The closest I had come before this product was the Tarte L.C.L. Which, I had also tried the waterproof version of and HATED IT! That one never really "sets" on the lashes. The non-waterproof/classic version is honestly pretty good. And It seems after I use it for a long time, my lashes are healthy and grow quite long. Now take all the reaming qualities about the Tart one, and make it better; You then get THIS mascara!
- Doesn't sting eyes on application or throughout wearing it
- Wonderful separation and definition of the lashes
- Can me layered om the lashes for desired effect
- Doesn't clump
- Adds gorgeous rich pigment
- "Sets" on the lashes do a SOFT texture. (You can actually touch your lashes without fear of them snapping off. Which also means later in the day, if you want to build up the intensity to go from a day to night look, you can. )
- Not Sticky
- Doesn't smudge, smear
- Doesn't flake
- Holds curl amazingly well all day
- Safe ingrediants
Here is what the website claims and I have to agree with everything it states:

Gentle, non-irritating formula applies easily and won't run or smear when wet.

I am so so so so impressed with this mascara, I highly recommend giving it a chance, even if you aren't looking for an organic mascara. It really is wonderful in my opinion.
