To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was given this as a gift from a friend in Taiwan. I loved it so much and happy I found them on Amazon. I’m 51 with hooded eyes and droopy eyelids and normal mascara make me look like a raccoon these days. Even waterproof mascara will leave marks because I have oily skin. This stuff is great. Smudge proof and somewhat waterproof. I wouldn’t go swimming in it but tears and rains resistant. It doesn’t come off with water and soap, needs makeup remover but it comes out easily with that.
I have deep-set eyes and my lashes rub against my brow bones. This mascara is definitely not transfer-proof, by the end of the day my brow bones become grey. Aside from that, the mascara doesn't curl my lashes, and it gives very little volume and length. On the plus side, it doesn’t flake, the fibers don’t irritate my eyes even the slightest. But the main problem is the removal. I bought it as a tubing mascara, all of those usually can be removed with water only, this one requires soap. Unfortunately, the soap can’t get it off, neither a gentle soap-free facial cleanser. Using very hot water helps, but I still end up pulling out my lashes by trying to get this mascara off. The only way to remove it without any damage to lashes or eyes is to a waterproof mascara remover. Mine took it off in no time, but I was looking for a tubing mascara not ‘a hard to get off.'
