answer 1
NOT A TUBING MASCARA. I was having annoyance remving it. I thought I'd try a tubing mascara. NOT NEARLY AS MUCH VOLUME AS THIS. So if you want a volumizing mascara, then purchase this. It stays on like forever, and looks really fine! I would buy two mascaras if you do not want to have to soap your eyes getting this off everyday. Just buy this and an everyday. You will miss this if you just go for ease. I am 40, and do not want to create wrinkles "scrubbing" my eyes, but I want lashes like a woman too, so.....

No way! If you're looking for a 'tube' mascara, Stilleto is better than this by a long shot & it's from Maybelline!

Yes, it is a tube mascara. The brush is shaped to make lashes stand out, which I love. It glides on smoothly, and stays on throughout the whole day!

This is very similar to Blinc Kiss Me and Fiberwig - however, the Superficial Lash from Hourglass is eactly like them.

I don't believe so....it is a bit tougher to remove than other mascaras, but its' wearability, lasting power, and ability to define lashes makes it worth using a remover.

I'm 99% sure it's not. It doesn't flake or smudge, though, and still comes off with regular cleanser and water.

It doesn't smear when put in water! Believe me, I tried! I was testing it out to see how it would react with water, and it stayed on without smudges.

I don't think there is a "waterproof" formula for this, but I can say I chopped a lot of onions this weekend and cried from it and this mascara amazingly held up.

Question
Film Noir vs. Ultraflesh Panthera
I think I've narrowed it down to two mascaras: Film Noir and Ultraflesh Panthera. However, I can't decide between the two!!! I love the brush on both of these. The only thing is that having to remove Film Noir might be a bit of a problem for me. What would you recommend? Thanks so much!

I use cleansing oils to remove all my makeup and it works beautifully on waterproof products. Shu Uemura makes a fantastic one, and there are other ones available at Sephora (Boscia, Josie Maran, Sephora brand) that are probably just as good.

I remove the Film Noir with baby shampoo. I started doing these years ago when my allergies flared up, and found it does a good job on the mascara too. Suds it up, rub it in, doesn't harm your eyes. Then I take a cue tip at the end to remove any leftover eyeliner, etc.

I was not a huge film noir mascara, felt it was "wet" and go clumpy quick. Ended up only using it a few times, the brush is nice though. Good luck!

Film noir comes off like any other mascara. I use philosophy purity and no problem. I don't use waterproofs because I dont have the patience to remove them. I have tried an embarrassing amount if mascaras and this is my fave! Buy it!

I don't think I've tried Ultraflesh yet but this Film Noir mascara is not more difficult to remove than any other mascara that I've noticed. So for now I would say go with Film Noir because it's great!

I simply love both! I liken them to daytime (Film Noir) and night time (Panthera). I found them both easily removable with an oil based eye makeup remover. They both lengthen and define, with the primary differences being that Panthera is darker than Film Noir and they have different brushes. However, I did find Film Noir to stay the same consistency-wise after a month or so while Panthera got a little bit clumpier. I say invest in both!
