I received this mascara from a relative brand new in the package and was excited to try it out for the first time. I applied it like any other mascara before going to work. I did love how it applied and looked, but that was short lived within the next 15 minutes. I got dressed, ate breakfast and went to check myself out in the mirror before heading out. I looked at my eyes and the mascara had fallen onto my cheeks and smudged in the outer corners of my eyes. I was not happy once that occurred, but I still was looking forward to how it would last throughout the day. Well through the day I was experiencing more flaking under my eyes and had to remove it with tissue. It's annoying when you have to continuously check your face for mascara fall out. I still was hoping to see how well it would look when I got home from a long day. It looked pretty good when I did check my face. So I decided to wash my face from all my makeup from the day. I washed my face but my eyes started to become irritated. I looked into the mirror and noticed countless specks of mascara had fallen into my eyes. I quickly grabbed a few q-tips to remove everything, but it was under my eye lids as well and areas too high to get out. I rubbed my eyes to remove the rest of the mascara derby so the irritation would stop. It took 2 minutes or so for me to carefully remove all possible mascara from both eyes. I truly am very disappointed with this mascara. A mascara shouldn't leave you with the feeling of irritation and constant worry about how it looks throughout the day. However, the deal breaker was when the specks of mascara had fallen into my eyes and began to really irritate them. :( No one should deal with this type of headache over a mascara. It is not worth the process of applying it. Sorry to say, but I will not be recommending this product to anyone.
