To the best of my knowledge, no this is not a waterproof mascara. It does say "water resistant" but I think that's desirable so that if you sweat or get caught in the rain you won't be as much of a mess. I used this product and it didnt bother my eyes at all.

I do not wear contacts but I am over 50 & my eyes are extremely sensitive. They water at the slightest irritant. Peter Thomas Roth mascara does not make my eyes water. I attribute that to the sanitary bristle free brush. The brush is made from plastic bristles, thereby not attracting dust & other irritants like a magnet.

You should always remove your makeup at night, even if it is conditioning its not good for your lashes to sleep in it, I use the Lashes to die for platinum at night so I always wash it off, you should really try the lash serum at night, it has made my lashes AMAZING!!!!

Technically, yes. It does have conditioning properties but I would say that wearing all day would give you the max effect as far as the mascara goes. I think they recommend that you buy and use the actually Lashes to Die For serum at night if you wanted a night time conditioning.

It doesn't require a "special" makeup remover but most beauty experts would recommend to use a basic eye makeup remover regardless of mascara you're using. When used correctly it should help with lash loss as well. But to answer your question simply, soap and water should be sufficient.

There is really no special way to apply it. It's your preference, but the proper way to apply mascara is on your upper lashes while you're looking down after you have curled your lashes of course. l apply it to the inside and outside of my lashes, and then use an eyelash comb to ensure there is no clumping. I absolutely love this mascara and it really lasts!

I rotate the brush (upwards) while doing precise, short strokes starting at the base of my lashes and pulling through to the tips. I've found this prevents clumping while maximizing the distribution of product. Sometimes I'll wait after the first application then use a lash comb before applying a final coat. It doesn't lengthen very much, but it works well enough on my lashes. I think if you keep applying to just the tips, though, with the shorter bristles, you can build up more length.

I always go short bristles first close to the base of the lashes to build volume and then pull to the ends with the longer bristles for length and definition. I usually go 2 coats back to back with no dry time in between.

I'm not an expert, but I use the bigger bristled part to do the outer 2/3 - 3/4 of my top lashes for the first coat and then use the tiny bristles to reach the inside. If I'm looking for more drama I go over the outer half again with another coat and the big bristles and dab around the tips of my lashes with the tiny bristles to add some more length.

I have the exact same problem with my lashes. I have long lashes, but they are dead straight!

To resolve this issue, I always use an eye lash curler. I heat it for ten seconds with a blow dryer, wait a couple seconds so it's not so hot, curl my lashes for ten seconds by pumping the handle, then apply the mascara to the tops of my lashes while I am looking down. Then I comb my lashes while they are slightly dry.

This may seem like a lot of work, but my lashes stay gorgeous and curled the entire day!

Armani creates a more dramatic effect while Roth provides more of a "little color" day-time effect. I haven't experienced any residual smearing under the eye throughout the day w/ Roth mascara, and there was some w/ the Armani mascara. By the end of the day, my eyes would get a little irritated w/ the Armani product, but not so w/ Roth mascara. Hope this helps.

Depends on what you mean by dramatic. Lashes To Die For is a very deep black, but not very shiny. Unless you add repeated coats, it doesn't get as thick and clumpy as Buxom. I have tried both and I prefer the formula in LTDF much better. Buxom's wand was harder to work with for some reason; no matter how I tried with Buxom's brush, my lashes stuck together in spikes and didn't separate, probably because the formula is stickier or something. I'm a huge fan of LTDF... I wore it in Hawaii and it stayed on my lashes despite the heat and humidity! I have average length lashes but they're fine and sparse, and LTDF has been very helpful in giving me fuller, darker lashes without looking like I painted tar on my eyes; I prefer a more natural look but I definitely want my eyes to be noticed. I think if you're going for the biggest lashes you can get and don't mind a heavy make-up look, there are other mascaras for that, though. Dior Show or Benefit BadGirl are pretty good for super dramatic lashes.

My opinion is that the mascara doesn't pump up your lashes. If you use the "Lashes to Die For" at night and this mascara, your lashes will get longer and thicker on their own. This mascara is about conditioning and treating your lashes while giving a bit more color and length. Regular mascaras add product to your lashes which strips and damages them. Peter Thomas Roth is about caring for your lashes so they natural appear as you want.
