You can always clean off the wand and use it with a different mascara.

How long does this mascara last, is this your fav waterproof mascara ?

I've always used waterproof mascara and have tried so many different ones. The last one I liked was YSL waterproof used it for a while and was happy with it, think it was about $28 but lasted for 2 - 3 mo. A few years ago I bought the same mascara and the formula was changed to something really cheap could tell immediately since it's now about $32 I returned it.

I've been using Loreal waterproof and it's ok but really want a good quality mascara. It's worth it to have nice quality for mascara.

Well I need the concelaler. Either it's dark circles, or dark smudges ... or I use waterproof, which hasn't been a problem for me in the past. No issues with eyelashes breaking off.

And typically it's not the waterproof mascara that causes breakage. It's the removal of the waterproof mascara. I saturate a cotton pad with eye makeup remover or micellar water and hold it against my lashes long enough to let it soften the mascara. Then it swipes off very easily without any rubbing.

I love The Clump Crusher by Cover Girl but it's not even mentioned on that list. I hate mascara that clumps, I want a natural look - not like I have spider legs on my eyes.

I have a separate mascara for my lower lashes and it has a very small brush. It's Maybelline Lash Discovery.

I swore by L'Oréal Voluminous for two decades with occasional purchases of all kinds of other brands but would always be disappointed and circle back to Voluminous. Well, I tried Rimmel's ScandalEyes and have switched my allegiance to the orange version. Lasts all day and no flaking, full and long lashes, easy application and removal. I'm not paying $30 for something I can get superior results with for just $5.

I use the waterproof version and I love it. It looks very natural, it's easy to remove and it's great for women whose eyes water or have allergies.

It's probably not the most hygienic, but I purchase one tube of Diorshow every 6 months. After that it kind of gets clumpy. I was really skeptical at first because the brush isn't anything fancy, but the mascara worked great for my lashes! I have really long, spaced-out lashes that stick out rather straight from my eyes. I just curl my lashes and apply Diorshow and they stay in place all day!

I've tried so many other brands (Loreal voluminous, countless different types of Maybelline, Rimmel, Physicians formula, off-brands, and a few high-end brands) and Diorshow was the best for me.

I have very short lashes and LOVE length. My absolute favorite mascara for years has been L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara. It has 2 ends, one white primer coat that you apply first, and while primer is still wet, the other end is the black mascara that you apply over the white coat. This is the only mascara that makes my lashes long. It doesn't smudge, clump or flake on me. It can be removed with warm water only (soaked onto lashes). I use warm water and a gentle face cleanser. It comes off in little tubes, no need for rubbing/scrubbing. It has been very gentle on my lashes. The application sounds complicated but it really isn't. I use a separate mascara on my lower lashes usually but I can also use this mascara and just skip the white primer as I don't want length on the bottom. My high-end choice would be Lancome Hypnose, it gives a bit of a spider-y lash but I like that look sometimes.
