My eyes began watering alot too the last few years and after going to an optomotrist for an eye exam I was told I have dry eye. Your tears tucks water to make up for the dryness. The best thing to do is get eye drops meant to add tears and moisturize. Try it. Just what we need right...worry about moisturizing our eyes! I really couldn't believe how long my lashes were with only one application!

Any other questions I can answer will be my pleasure. I currently work in a natural health store in their beauty department including make-up but my backround for the last 30 years has been a hairdresser and make-up artist for Chanel, Lancome, Shisedo, Christian Dior and Prescriptives along with doing print ads. I weave (highlight) and cut my own hair as well and am a haircare junkie, I admit.

I really liked it, Puffle, but my droopy lashes were worse than when i used Loreal Lash Out..... I swear, I am thinking about going back to wearing false lashes...... the Revlon is a good product, dont get me wrong, its just the droopy lash thing is driving me crazy!

Hi Puffle...thanks for the info. I went out and bought the 3D mascara. I got some bad clumps. Should I "wipe" the brush on the outside of the top of the tube? It seems like there is way too much mascara on the brush. Thanks.

I saw the thread and checked this mascara out, too. Puffle is an expert and perhaps that's why it works for her. Many women were complaining of the same.

#1 Don't pump the brush in and out of the tube. This will cause drying of the mascara quicker than usual.
#2 I always wipe the excess off the brush.
#3 Could be a bad batch. Didn't happen to me. If you usually put on several coats that could be the problem too. You seriously only need one coat of this mascara or you will probably get clumps because it thickens your lashes very easily. I have thick lashes so if this was a clumpy formula it would not be good for me. Sorry if it didn't work but try these tips and see if it improves, otherwise, return it.

I'm suddenly having problems finding a mascara that doesn't clump too. I had a great for a year or two and never any clumping trouble, now I'm having real problems. I've got one of the ones with the new comb-style brush as well and I'm not getting on with it - I spent more time trying to separate my lashes this morning than I did on most of the rest of my makeup! What's your view on those brushes?

I might try what you've suggested there though - thanks. Do you just wipe the excess off on a tissue or something?
