Review: I was super excited to use this mascara after using two bad mascaras in a row (leaving me feeling frustrated) but to start with this one was also a little disappointing but improved with timeand persistence. When used on my own lashes, Long Black Mascara ran and somehow made it into my eye lids and surrounds - isn't it supposed to be smudge-proof and water resistant? Having said this though I have been using Long Black Mascara in my makeup artist makeup kit and it works really well on clients who do not seem to experience this. The smudgy formula is difficult to remove but comes off nicely with a good eye makeup remover. Long Black Mascara washes away without wrecking lashes. The scent is kind of nice but quite strong for a product which is worn so close to the eyes. In fact I can actually smell the formula throughout the day when wearing it.
