This is a great product that turns ANY mascara into a waterproof one, without the heartache of having to remove an actual waterproof mascara! Works great!

Last while sweating during a workout !

I was very hesitate at first when I purchased this. I have never tried at waterproof topcoat. This made me a convert. I was out of my usual waterproof mascara so I opted to try this in a pinch. Talk about scared. Where I bodybuild it is just a car garage. No AC, so here in Texas it bis 100 degrees by noon. This topcoat did not smudge at all. I actually had to use waterproof mascara remover and really scrub. Highly recommend this product !

I love having dark long full lashes but hate when mascara runs or wears out? This product stops that from happening! Great product

Really works!
Purchased

keeps all mascara's that are not waterproof from smudging and/or flaking throughout the day. Also helps them last longer so you don't have to reapply during the day. I noticed that if I clump mascara on, this will smooth it out and make my lashes separate and look more natural. Love it, use it a lot and will definitely repurchase when necessary.

Better than I expected
Purchased

I only use waterproof mascara because otherwise I'm guaranteed to look like a raccoon within an hour of putting on mascara. This did help keep it in place for much longer. My eyes are very dry (medical condition) and I often get uncomfortable wearing mascara. This one took a long time to irritate me, which for me is a huge win.

Fantastic!

I adore this stuff! My problem with mascara is smudging and curls that form, but don't last all day. This solves both my problems. It's also a great way to work through clumps in mascara without actually having to apply more product!

Genius, Indeed!

Let me open by saying how surprised I was to see that the sample size (0.11oz) was so close to the full size (0.19oz) product. Super value, for a sample-box product!

Now that I've had a day to fully inspect the product, there's a gentle curve to the Anastasia brush that makes it a snap to apply the clear formula. In order to look that closely at the brush, I had it practically under my nose, and noticed a slightly sharp chemical odor from the product that was off-putting, especially when you consider that it's going so close to the eyes, but reading further into the manufacturer description, I realized it's just the paraben waxes. No big deal, and really, a necessary part of the product when you want a big, glossy, waterproof finish with great separation.

Which is EXACTLY what this product delivers. I applied it over a generi-store non-waterproof mascara after I let it dry for a couple minutes; my eyes are too sensitive to go from poking with Wand A right to poking with Wand B. Two coats of the Anastasia, a quick wait for drying, and then the same splash-test I did when I got the sample Mermaid Box: A little bit of warm water, and a little bit of cold water. No smears, no running, nothing. None of my mascara budged. I know the product says it's waterproof right away, but I still can't think of a situation where you're going to put the product on and then literally, immediately, be wet-in-the-eyes. Even in an emotional situation, makeup is 99% preparation; this is an application-first product. It would reasonably have time to dry before being put to the test.

As a final bonus, it's got true all-day staying power, really. It didn't fade in my initial test, even after repeated splashing and standing over a hot stove, in steam, BUT, it didn't fight my makeup remover too badly, either. (That honor was reserved for my eyeliner!) I'm absolutely buying the full-size once I run out of my itty-bitty.

Love This

I will admit, I have yet to use this over mascara - mostly because I wear waterproof mascara. That said, I am a big fan of this as a clear mascara. It gives my lashes a long, defined, very natural, almost "wet" look. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a clear mascara.

Amazing - the real deal
Purchased

I'd had zero luck with mascaras for years because they would always, always, ALWAYS flake or, at the very least, leave a blackish-gray shadow under my eyes by the end of the day. I went through countless mascaras, destined to be disappointed every time... until now. This product truly is amazing. It idiot-proofs a decent mascara so it just STAYS PUT. I use it with Tarte's Gifted mascara and it never fails me. For the best results (I've learned this from when I'm in a hurry) make sure you let the mascara DRY COMPLETELY first. Then apply some Genius and you're good to go!

IT REALLY WORKS!!
Purchased

This is an AMAZING product and I can't believe it took this long for someone to figure out how to do it! Now I can wear all my favorite mascaras in the heat and not worry about it smearing due to sweat!! I put on as 1-2 coats of my regular mascara, wait a couple minutes for it to dry, then add a coat of this waterproof topcoat on top and bottom lashes. It's perfect! This might be TMI, but I sweat like a pig...always have! And if my makeup isnt waterproof, I'll quickly look like a dirty raccoon. This topcoat keeps me looking civilized even after 2hrs of sweating it up at the gym!! I love it and I'm probably gonna order more so I don't run out. It's not cakey, flakey, filmy, heavy or anything! It goes on clear and stays that way. My new favorite product...GENIUS!!!
