Although I have purchased other products from this company and was quite pleased with them, I have to say that this was actually the worst mascara that I have tried in recent memory.
Finding a good mascara (and for that matter eye liner), that doesn't leave on looking like a raccoon before the day is out is always a challenge. As it can be hard to tell if it is the mascara or eyeliner that may be the culprit, I opted to try this product without any eyeliner during my first use, so that I would have a clear idea of how smudge proof it might be.
Unfortunately, this mascara was leaving traces of itself both above and below my eyes from basically right after it had been applied (but should have had time to dry) until I used eye make-up remover to take it off for the second time the next morning!
I checked it at every opportunity, found that it had smeared, cleaned the area up, only to check it again in an hour or so, to find the same result. I truly can't recall ever having a mascara that was quite that bad. I believe that with every blink, the color dislodged...while at the same time, some managed to cling on enough that my evening cleaning didn't remove all traces of it and I was confronted with raccoon eyes again in the morning.
Very disappointing, especially as I mentioned, I have purchased other products that I was pleased with, which is why I decided to give it a try in the first place.
