So usually when I see a mascara sample I look to see if it's waterproof, which they never are, then move it along. I've used waterproof mascara for years because hey, ready for anything snow rain sleet, vacation ocean, whatever. Why would anyone use anything else?
When this sample arrived I was about to pass it along as usual, when for some strange reason I felt compelled to check it out. Maybe I've been to hard on non-waterproofs because this stuff is great!

I have light colored short lashes. I thought my current mascara was pretty good. I was wrong. X-Rated gives me those eyelashes you see on commercials but never really get when you use the product. It doesn't flake off, it doesn't run. My eyes watered due to allergies and I didn't look like a nightmare. I rubbed my eyes and it didn't come off like grease on my hands (yes this has happened, yuck).

Granted I haven't been in the rain yet but I'm feeling optimistic! So new addiction. Long beautiful lashes. So glad I didn't pass this one along.
