Is this mascara water-proof?

answer 1
Sephora does not, for some strange reason, carry the waterproof version of this mascara which I really like. However, interestingly I ended up buying the non-waterproof version (from another retailer) which as one other customer has noted does not smudge. I have trouble with eyes watering in wintertime and the non-waterproof version does not run even when my eyes water which is a plus.

Hi! I've used this particular mascara for years, and even though I dont use the waterproof version, I've never had a problem with it smudging or running even when I work out. I've never tried the waterproof version but unless you need it specifically for some water-based activity, I would seriously give this a try!

No this particular one is not waterproof but it does not smudge so that's a plus. It comes off easily with with an eye make-up remover or soap and water. BUT.... remember that Lancome does make a Definicils Waterproof as well as a regular one if that's what you're looking for.

Wash off easily?

Yes it is easy to wash off. Though you still have to use your fingers to get it all off plus a cotton swab to get at the lash line. But there is no need to use any other product but water to get it all off.

Washes off very easily. Of course, get your eyes wet first and get the mascara kind of melted off your lashes. Then it washes off pretty easily. A lot of it seems to rinse off before being washed off. Yet it stays in place well and even survives a good cry.

I wash my face with a gentle cleanser (Purpose), and it easily dissolves this mascara. I then wipe a q-tip around my lash line to get all of it off.

I was concerned about the potential for a loss of lash mass, because I noticed that I lost a few lashes since using this product. However, my lashes overall do not show a detrimental loss. So, it was not a deal breaker... it was the reason that I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 though.

Question
This or YSL Faux Cils?
I never invested in a brand name mascara since my lashes are very hard to manage, but I have been hearing great reviews on definicils and ysl's faux cils and wondering which one I should try out? I tried Dior show before which was great in volumizing but my lashes still fell. No matter how much I curl my lashes, various mascaras (volumizing and lengthening) seem to weigh them back down or they go straight! The only mascara that works for me is maybeline but I am really thinking about trying out either lancome or ysl. What do you think??

I love this mascara, but I too have trouble with falling lashes. A mascara that works like Lancome Definicils, but has a bit more holding power is Benefit They're Real mascara. I was told by a Shopper Drug Mart cosmetic manager that if I used Lancome, I would love the "They're Real" mascara. It definitely holds eyelash curler curl better than other mascaras I have used. Either way, you are in for a treat! I have both and alternate depending on what look I am going for!

My lashes are super straight and Définicils curls them (not that much, but no other mascara does...). YSL has the best smell ever and is THE BEST mascara... but only in his first few days or weeks of use. It's pricey and dries out extremely fast. I really like Définicils and it does all it claims to do. I like it better than YSL Effet Faux Cils.

Definicils with primer is the best mascara ever - you should really give it a try. Always remember to use primer first and then apply mascara within seconds on the top of lashes and then under your lashes.

LANCOME! Please try Definicils. Believe me, I've tried them all, for $ and convenience reasons, and I always come back to this. It is very gentle on my 45 yr. old lashes; they don't break or fall out. The brush is thin and comes out with the perfect amount of product. Fantastic at defining and lengthening. A perfect, everyday mascara-- a beauty must-have!

It does not clump. Please read my review. It is a little less volumizing than other mascaras but I can increase the volume of this mascara by carefully re-applying after a couple of minutes. It is not gooey and lasts and is very defining to give a more natural look.

The volume isn't great. It does lengthen well, just put a few layers on and it will clump just barely. I use an eyelash brush and it takes the clumps out. I plan on trying something new with more volume for the price though

It does not clump or volumize. It darkens and defines what you have making the lashes stand out more. If you have thin or light colored lashes it makes them more apparent from root to tip.

Not worth it in my book. The sample I got was great, but the full-sized (expensive) tube I bought was clumpy and not particularly "waterproof" even though it was supposed to be.

If you have small lashes I would recommend this. I purchased a sample size and I am very impressed. It doesn't do much for volume but it have incredible length and definition. It is non clumping, and the formula is very light and gives you lashes incredible sheen.

Does this mascara keep your lashes up??
It says everything but this. I have a problem with my eyelashes not wanting to stay up. I curl them and then(depending on the mascara) they slowly fall down, then it doesn't look like I have any.

High Definition compared to Hypnose?
Which one of the two is better? What are the good and bad of each? I have never tried neither. If it does get on my eyelid while applying, will it stain for the rest of the day?

I have also tried both and prefer the Definicils. My lashes are naturally long, thick, and dark, and the Hypnose was so clumpy. It just made me look like I was wearing too much mascara. The Definicils lengthens, defines, and separates my lashes so I look more polished. Also, the Hypnose has some sort of fragrance added to it that drove me crazy - it was like having perfume put on my face. The Definicils does not have that.

answer 2
It depends what you are looking for -- Hypnose is great for volume and length, and Definicils is wonderful for separating and lenghtening. They are both excellent products. The black that you get on your eyelids when you apply the mascara is easily removed with a Q-tip, and will not reappear on your eyelids during the day. Until you perfect the way you apply the mascara, you may have this problem, but the more you use it, the less you will have to deal with black on your eyelids.

DiorShow is much better for curling, holding curl, and volumizing, but it smudges and gives "racoon eyes" easily. Definicils is a more natural look and doesn't smudge even on my oily lids. Lashes look darker and longer with Definicils, but it definitely doesn't hold a curl on my Asian lashes.

I've tried so many mascaras including Diorshow.I alway have gone back to Definicils since I started using it.Diorshow is great too.Different effect though.Diorshow is mostly volumizing and definicils is mostly lenghtening.I also think definicils is slightly darker in the black color or very black.
