A subtle, pretty mascara
I have nice lashes and so all these plumbing and pumping and boosting mascaras tend to make it like I'm going for a much bigger look. This one does exactly what it says. It separates and defines while adding a gorgeous black. The plastic brush, which I adore, has a long side and a short side, I use the long bristles for my top lashes and the short side for my bottom. The more you build the product, the more climbing you can get, but I've also found the brush is fine enough that if you're quick before it dries you can just brush them out. I get no flaking, and it keeps any curl you give your lashes that day. I just love it.
I will say that this baby isn't just waterproof, it's survivede face down on massage table, crying and rubbing my eyes like a toddler, etc etc. It's nuts. You can get it off with enough of an oil based cleanser, an oil based moisturiser, and probably sandpaper, but prepare for resistance because it loves your lashes and ain't letting go. I own it in bother waterproof and regular for days when I cbf scrubbing at my eyes. I use a specific waterproof eye makeup remover and that does the job but it's still a chore
And hey, sometimes you just need something that will never leave you.
