My love hate relationship with mascara.....

Am I the only girl here who has trouble with mascara? I don't like the waterproof stuff, because it's hard to remove and it makes my lashes feel stiff and brittle...but nonwaterproof mascara rubs off by 7 p.m.
It's been bugging me recently. I didn't wear any for a few days, and I missed it...but once I started wearing it again, after dinner, I had dark black "rubbing" marks under my eye. I try to not touch my eyes, but yeah right.
It's not like I use the cheap stuff....am I the only one struggling with this problem?

I have no problem with my water-proof mascara, but if I had to use non-waterproof ones... I think I'll have the same problem with you.

crusty lashes are not cool

I never wear mascara.

It's way more trouble than its worth.

I don't use mascara. I always smear it.

I have some clear stuff, but it really doesn't do much of anything.

I adore mascara. Black. I have the shortest eyelashes in the world, I'll do anything to bring them out. Actually, fake eyelashes are the best but they take too long.

Cover Girl mascara sucks. I only bought it once, that's what I get for being a penny pincher. The best is Estee Lauder, my grandma get's it for me.

I don't wear mascara everyday but i do think i look better with it on. Over the years i've tried quite a few different brands, and until recently have stuck with Maybelline Great Lash. This would only smudge if i didn't take it off before bed and would wake up with slight panda eyes!!

They have a waterproof kind which i'd use occasionally but i too found it near impossible to remove and it made my lashes too stiff.

Now i use David Jones (Aussie brand) conditioning mascara and i never have any problems with clumping or smudging. It's great

I'm a big believer in the Clinique Full Potential mascara. It lengthens, fattens, and slightly curls your lashes. And it stays on long and doesn't clump!

Another mascara that stays on is the Clinique Lash Doubling mascara. It clumps when you put it on, but just swipe the clumps a couple of times w/ a Q-tip and that takes care of the clumps. It makes lashes look sooooooo good, but it's not the kind of mascara to use if you are in a big hurry.

Right now I'm also using Maybelline's Full and Soft, but I should have got the waterproof. I'm also using their lash discovery which has a teeny tiny brush, so I can reach the little lashes in the Corner. I had a sample of Lancome mascara.....mascara heaven.
