This has changed my life:
this mascara. All I can say is that if you get raccoon eyes halfway through the day, and your pillowcase is also riddled with mascara smudges, you need to try it. Instead of using regular mascara ink stuff that bleeds and smears, this mascara is made out of... well... the only way I can describe it is that it is kind of like plastic (I think the lady at the make-up counter in Nordstrom used the word "polymer"). It sounds weird people, but let me tell you, it does not run. It does not smear. I can sleep in it all night and wake up and it is still on my eyelashes, not on my pillow. When you take it off (with just warm water- no eye makeup remover needed!), it comes off in tiny little balls of plastic-ey stuff, not in the traditional inky blackness.
I love it. Raccoon eyes no more.
