Mascara That Won't Run
I need some help with mascara. Recently, my old faithful Lancome Definicils Mascara has started to give me raccoon eyes. I switched to waterproof and it didn't help - it just made it more of a hassle to wash it off at night. I have different brands, i.e., Prescriptives; but that's even worse. As a last resort I decided to only apply waterproof mascara to the top row of lashes and not the bottom and wouldn't you believe that I looked in the mirror this afternoon and there they were - raccoon eyes! Any suggestions?

Mary Kay has a great mascara that I have no problems with. All of my customers rave about it. We do have waterproof but you probably wont need it.

I used to work for Lancome and that is odd that the Definicils started running on you. Have you tried any of their other mascaras? I was using Hypnose for a while and loved it. All of their mascaras are tear-proof so even if it's not labeled waterproof it shouldn't run. Because of the cost of Lancome, I have switched to Cover Girl's new mascara, Lash Out, and it's great. I have had no problem with it running on me and it makes my lashes very thick. You might want to give that one a try.

I use Maybelline Great lash in the pink tube. It's cheap and it works!

You articulated very well my past experience with mascara! I now use Nicole Miller! Let me tell you, it's only 12.00 and no more raccoon eyes or difficulty cleaning it off at night. Additionally, I have the same look with NM waterproof as I did using NM regular mascara. For me, other waterproof brands did not give me that "sexy eye look."
In case you are not familiar with Nicole Miller. She is a NY fashion designer. http://www.nicolemiller.com/ However, Melaleuca owns exclusive rights to her cosmetics. http://www.melaleuca.com/ps/index.cfm?f=ps.categoryPage&a...
Regular cost is $20. As a preferred customer, you can get it for only $12.00 with a 100% money back guarantee. (Preferred customer one time only enrollment fee this month is only $1.00 and it allows you can shop for 1 year at the PC price.)

I have 2 different kids of Clinique mascara and I love both. I do not get raccoon eyes.

I used to only use Definicils, too, and had the same problem out of nowhere. Weird. I like Clinique's Long Pretty Lashes. I just started using Loreal Voluminous Full Definition (in a gold tube), and I think I actually like it even better than the others. Plus it's half the price.

I've been using Loreal Lash Out since high school and I've never had any problems. I've tried most brands and I always go back to it because I think it stays on the longest and makes look very long and full and has never run and smeared under my eyes.....hope that helps!

I use the best mascara that I have ever had and I know that it has no carcinogens (cancer causing agents) like many other mascaras. It is Arbonne mascara. It doesn't run or clump and thickens and lengthens lashes. If you want to try it let me know . My email is ____@____.com
