I am sick of looking panda like by the end of the day. Have tried no7 waterproof and then splurged on a Lancome one only to find i still have dark smudgy bits round my eyes by the end of the day...can i be the only person this happens to? Need to find a really really waterproof dark brown/black mascara!!!

Blinc doesn't move at all.

are you sure it is your mascara and not your eyeliner?

Maybelline colossal waterproof doesn't budge and is very very dark black. Love it.

Get them dyed!

I did find one - Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lash Tint. They discontinued it a few years ago sad It was so good I even paid £30 on ebay for a tube a couple of months ago shock

Sorry, not much help for you grin but I will be reading the replies for an affordable replacement.

Kanebo 38 degrees, it sets and you can only remove it with water hotter than 38 degrees, not even waterproof eyemake up remover gets rid, i wore it on my wedding day and have converted virtually everyone i know to it since grin

Diorshow, can only be removed with a sand-blaster.

Blinc - absolutely no smudging.

PercyPigPie Sun 14-Aug-11 18:37:33

Clinique - has to be removed with warm water or it won't budge. Slight smudges when swimming the other day, but otherwise, stays put.

Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes. Have used it at close friends' weddings so can genuinely vouch for it! And it's just a great mascara anyway. And when I bought my last lot in Debenhams, the assistant gave me a generous handful of fragrance samples too. most of them reek actually but it's the principle of the thing

Blinc is amazing. It survived my aren'ts funerals.

LilRedWG Sun 14-Aug-11 18:43:37

Parent's not aren'ts

nbee84 Sun 14-Aug-11 19:21:45

I have ordered some Binc mascara smile

nbee84 Sun 14-Aug-11 19:22:33

Chucks up the missing l blushgrin

I loved Revlon colourstay lash tint- am gutted they have discontinued it, am eeking out my last tube of it.

I find maxfactor false lash-effect waterproof very good, but yes it is often eyeliner that smudges on me, even though i only put it on upper lids hmm

Thank you ladies!!!

Bobbi Brown NoSmudge (or is it called Smudge-free?) refuses to budge. But I don't find it an especially good product otherwise so I was looking for another one. I've heard nothing but good things about Blinc, but tbh it freaks me out! Having to wash away those little tubes sounds a bit, well, gross. And can the tubes come off and stick in your contact lenses <ouch>?

poppydog2 Mon 15-Aug-11 12:11:10

Yes blinc sounds great....but how does it come off and are you left with a pile of little tubes??? Defo getting plenty of recommendations and was about to order some when i wondered about removing it....thoughts anyone who uses it???

WalterFlipschicks Mon 15-Aug-11 12:16:43

The kanebo one does the tube thing, and they dont come off until you remove them, in answer to the contact lense thing, haven't tried the blinc one but might give it a go

To get Blinc off I splash my eyes with water and then gentle pull the tubes off - looks fairly freaky, as though you've pulled your eyelashes out and they're floating in the basin, but there is no leftover residue or next morning panda-eyes.
