I have tried many, and this is my go to. I suffer from dry eye and irritation, so I am always on the look out for the most natural eye make up so I don't add fuel to the fire. I bought this in the blackberry, and not only does it smell good, it really doesn't smudge or run. I am not a fan of waterproof mascaras, so if you are into those more "permanent" mascaras, don't buy this. It is easy to get off, stays as necessary and the best thing is, it is natural.
