As I have got older (and have slightly more laughter lines) every mascara I try seems to run so I have panda eyes after a couple of hours. I have started wearing a waterproof one but they don't seem to give any lash thickening effect and is a pain to fully remove even with a decent eye make up remover. I used to love Max Factor but have tried everything, all of them leave dark marks after a while. I always pass the rejects onto the kids who don't have the same problem so it must be me. Their favourite is benefit which gets good reviews but both ones I tried smudged/ran after a while. Has anyone else had this and can anyone recommend anything?
I find the tubing ones flake off by the afternoon. I look for smudgeproof rather than waterproof and am currently using LOreal Volume Millions. It isn't the best one I have used in terms of volume and length but it doesn't smudge and comes off with eye make up remover or a cleansing balm/ oil.
I have this! Deep-set eyes and oily skin with long eyelashes make this an issue for me. I have found Tarte Tarteist with the primer works best. The primer seemed like an unnecessary extra step, but it really helps, and also dramatically cuts down the amount of mascara you need to use, so actually saves money.
Tubing mascara is the only one that works for me now. Using the double wear one now but I have heard good things about Blinc - I think that is tubing, could be misremembering. It does get clumpy by evening though, and I spend the evening pulling it off my lashes if I'm not careful.
Thanks for the recommendations. Have never heard of tubing mascara but will give it a go. Yesterday was a nightmare - I don't know if the heat makes it worse. I have very fair/ fine lashes so have to use something. I don't know why this happens - seems to be an age thing but not sure why.
This mascara never runs or smudges on me. I take my DD swimming weekly and whilst I don't dunk my head under my face does get wet and it's still in place. I also recently wore it of an evening on holiday and it survived the heat, sweat and humidity. It's much better than any of the more expensive mascaras that I've tried and I prefer it to those of a similar price point (maybelline, max factor, boots no 7 etc - I've tried a shit load of different mascaras over the years ) This one doesn't make my eyes water like some have in the past.
They also do a waterproof version but I haven't tried that one.
Heroine long and curl mascara off eBay Here's the Reddit review below. I did a PT session, sweated like mad, fell asleep face down for an hour and then drenched my face while washing my hair. That shit was not for moving 😂😂
The regular version is bulletproof. It is immortal. It laughs at your feeble cleansing oil. Water and pressure only made it stronger. I had to break out my asian eye makeup remover to get it off my hand, and even then it took two rounds of it and a foam cleanser. I tried to remove it with my western cleansing oil and it ate it and asked for seconds. It would be my mascara of choice for a marathon viewing of Schindler's List followed by Bambi and Titanic. If the end of the world came, all that would be left is dust, Keith Richards, and Heroine Make Long and Curl regular Mascara. I can't imagine what the Super Waterproof is like, and I'm honestly afraid to try.
