This is my HOLY GRAIL mascara! I have been using all different mascaras since high school, and this is the best one I've ever used. I have really oily skin, and every mascara I use ends up in dark pools under my eyes by the end of the day. It always makes me look like I am tired or have dark under eye circles. Other mascaras also smudge near my eyebrows and generally are just a mess to take off at night. I was curious about the Blinc tube mascara, and found this one for much cheaper. I thought, why not. I tried it this morning, using the primer first and the 2nd step. Easy application, same as other mascaras. Dried quickly, and made my eyelashes super long and thick almost like fake lashes. The WHOLE day, my eyelashes did not smudge, or melt off under my eyes. They stayed the same as when I applied this morning, over 9 hours earlier. This evening when I went to take it off, I held a wet washcloth for 30 seconds on each eye, and the "tubes" slid off right into my hand. No messy black, no nothing. Everything was off. This stuff is magic.
