Pros: doesn’t flake off, makes my lashes look longer, waterproof
Cons: bad stopper, it clumps my lashes together, the brush

Usually in the heat, my eyelashes leave marks on my lower lids, let alone rain and snow. This is actually the reason why I needed a waterproof mascara, which will definitely stay on throughout the day in any weather conditions.

This mascara is packed with a silver glossy tube and has a big brush, which has rather small bristles at the end. By the way, the bristles become bigger towards the wand. The formula doesn’t have any smell.

At first I want to speak about the advantages of the product:

  • This mascara is truly waterproof. It can live through the heat, tears, snow, and rain. It doesn’t leave marks, smudge or flake off. It stays on the entire day and easily lives through any weather conditions. I remove it with a waterproof makeup remover.

  • It makes my eyelashes look longer.

So now, I have to list the disadvantages, alas.

  • The stopper is horrible, it doesn’t wipe of the formula well, hence the brush always has too much of the mascara on. I have to wipe the brush over the stopper each time I take it out, which isn’t hygienic at all.

  • The brush is big and it always gathers too much of the formula. This is why it badly separates my lashes and they always look clumped. If I wipe the brush over the rims of the tube, then my lashes look pathetic. If I don’t wipe the brush off, then I’ll end up having one big eyelash on each of my eyes. To top it off, this gigantic brush doesn’t coat my lashes well and never increases the volume.

I like this mascara only when it comes to the formula. But the package is horrible, this is actually the packaging that makes the use of the product unpleasant and difficult. If only the product had another brush and stopper, everything would be perfect then. But now I can’t recommend it for anybody, moreover, it’s very unlikely that I’d ever repurchase myself.

  • Cute and not too bad. But faulty.

    I don’t like wearing makeup, but I can’t get by without a mascara (because naturally I'm deprived of beautiful and thick eyelashes). And even though there are a lot of people saying that all the mascaras are the same and it’s a great makeup segment to save money on, for me it isn’t actually true.
