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!!!
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
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
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>?
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???
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.
