perfect travel size, 3 black mascaras
I think it might be my favourite of them all. I have very fine, and fairly short lashes naturally, but this stuff makes me look like I have false lashes on.
You dont need to be an expert at applying it, and removal is super easy (the soft plastic "tubes" just fall off in warm water - thats it!) if it gets somewhere it shouldnt (like your cheek or eyelid) just let it dry then wet cotton bud off, no smudges!
After about 10 years of use I can only think of one downside and its a very small one;
the mascara IS waterproof (in cold water) but it is slightly harder to get off after you've been swimming, and if you're an eye rubber like me, it does clump your lashes together slightly after swimming too. Not obvious, but i can tell when i'm taking it off that it feels "thicker".
it's still way better than "normal" mascara for swimming though, in my opinion.
I buy the minis because I only wear makeup during the work week, and they last me 3 months, which i read somewhere is when you should replace your mascara anyway, so it works for me.
