This did not smear on me, but it flaked like crazy. Not an attractive look. Great idea, and it was definitely much easier to apply to my bottom lashes than a regular mascara, but I returned it because of the flaking.

I use eye drops several times a day, as I'm constantly looking at a computer for work. The eye drops always run down under my eyes, but I've never had a problem with my lower lash mascara smudging or running. It's wonderful. Just don't rub your eyes when they're wet, and you should be good!

answer 4
There's definitely a high smudge risk while you're applying this mascara, as its formula is very wet (it almost looks like ink in the bottle). But once it dries, it seems to stay put pretty well. I just bought this today and put it on as soon as I got home, since I was eager to try it out. It's been about eight hours, and it still looks nice. However, I was told by a Clinique makeup artist that this isn't waterproof, so there is some risk of smears - I'd guess if you're sweating a lot, for example.

I actually find it somewhat difficult to remove, so for me, it has pretty good staying power. The first time I used it, however, I did apply too much. Dreaded spider-leg look! On subsequent uses, I've used a lighter hand and it's been great. The size of the brush is perfect for getting those little lashes on the top, too.

I threw away the packaging and checked the tube, nothing is on it but here is what I suggest. Clinique has its own webpage and if you go on it there is a button you can push to speak (chat on line) with a specialist. They are open M-F and I am certain they can tell you! If it helps, all Clinique products are 100% non allergetic. Good luck.

My opinion, depends on the look you're going for. If you want your eyes to stand out, and are gonna wear it with black liner, than you should go with black. If you're going with more natural look with less bold color liner or no liner, than prob brown. Hope that helped!

No I haven't and don't think I ever would. The brush is really small. I would imagine it would be too time consuming to use this brush all over. I mainly use it for touch ups in the corner and along the lash line to avoid those dreaded mascara marks after I put on eyeshadow.

I have been using for a this few weeks and it's still working perfectly for me, no clumps and no thinning out. The tube is smaller, but it's not tiny, and the brush is so small that it doesn't take much for one coat on the bottom lashes, and that's really all you need. I don't splurge on makeup, but this mascara works wonderfully.
