IMPORTANT: The description neglects to inform you that this mascara is a TUBING mascara, meaning that for formula literally coats your lashes 360 degrees. This means great for sensitive eyes because it doesn't smudge, but unless you are familiar with removing a tubing mascara (like some reviewers) it will be tricky at first. I get my whole face wet and wash it but leave the soap on my eyes while I wash the rest of my face. I then rinse the soap off my eyes and you can easily and gently pull the tubes off of your lashes.
This mascara lengthens, thickens, and comes off easily if you know how to remove it properly. Most importantly for me, it doesn't smudge- even after 12 hours of wear time.
