Collection Volumising Mascara
Good mascara but NOT waterproof
It's very rare that I leave review for products, and I think this is the first bad review I have ever left... I bought the waterproof version of this mascara hoping it would separate my lashes, add some volume and most importantly not come off when swimming. I bought it to take to summer camp and then travelling afterwards, and didn't expect to wear it everyday because it's camp, but maybe sometimes during the day and therefore it needed to be waterproof, also, as we could be teaching in rain and humid weather it needed to stand up to this.. It managed a horse riding lesson without smudging at all, which was great, and I like the way it applies, nice easy dry formula that doesn't stick your lashes together, but isn't particularly volumising.. I've had better mascara's. Nevertheless it didn't need separating with a separate brush or anything so I was quite pleased, until I came to test the waterproofness well a wet cotton wool pad simply pressed over the eyes took this right off and I looked like a panda, most of the mascara was under my eyes not on my lashes, just like a non waterproof one would be! I've had non waterproof mascara's that hold up better in water than this did! I'll still use this mascara, because I really like the look it gives, but I'm searching for a waterproof one!

I have only used this mascara a few times but I will be throwing it away. It does not provide volume at all - almost the opposite. A big blob of mascara also fell on my carpet after I pulled the wand out. It is hard to remove even with wipes for waterproof mascara. Not impressed :-(

Irritated my eyes, smudges like crazy
I used the non-waterproof version but I still expected more staying power! Over the course of wearing it it smudges horribly giving really bad panda eye effect. The brush is also very clumsy for application and I'd end up with loads of mistakes that don't happen with other mascaras that would then be tricky to clean up. So in a word, messy!
It also made my eyes feel pretty sore and sensitive and the last time I used it it made one of my eyes quite inflamed so it has gone in the bin. Waste of time and money!
