Despite what most reviews of this product indicate this is a GREAT MASCARA. First off, yes it is a large brush so yes you will likely get some mascara on you eyelid while you're applying it. NO BIGGIE, simply rub some ponds cold cream onto a q tip and swipe the mascara off your eyelid, very simple. Regardless of what kind of mascara or brush I use I always get some on my eyelid so that step is inevitable for me. Secondly, this product does not clump when used properly! When it is new there is too much mascara on the want so SCRAPE some off on the edge of the tube! THEN apply starting at the base with a zig zag motion moving up the eyelashes. IF, and I do mean IF it does clump just run a clean spooly brush though it or eyelash comb and it looks great! Thirdly, This product does not flake easily! I use this everyday and it only flakes if I sleep in it! and I sleep face-down! And yes is it does take a while to remove but it is not impossible! I wonder what kind of makeup remover some reviewers have been using! I use Ponds Cold cream and rub it in for a min or so and then rub gently with a tissue and it comes off. I LOVE THIS MASCARA, ITS GREAT. I reccomend curling lashes before applying this. I'll admit I don't have short eyelashes but people notice my eyelashes ALL the time and comment on them, I've even been accused of wearing fake individual eyelashes! Also, this waterproof formula actually helps HOLD the CURL! I have also tried the non-waterproof version and I do not like it, it does flake rather badly and doesn't hold curl at all. Overall This is a GREAT MASCARA, dont let people who dont know how to apply mascara, or remove it for that matter, convince you otherwise, Its excellent!

I decided to try this only because the kind I've used for years (CG Marathon) was no longer available in stores and a friend of mine recommended this. As others have said, the big brush is bulky to hold and difficult to maneuver in the corners. I have also had difficulty getting the mascara to actually transfer to my lower lashes without ending up with mascara on my skin. Yes, in theory the excess can be removed with a Q-tip if I do it right away but even that does not always work completely so then there are smudges. On the plus side, it does stay put and I have not noticed flaking. I've been able to remove it fairly well with Almay oil-free eye makeup remover pads. Nevertheless I intend to see if I can return this mascara to the store once I've received my order for the Marathon mascara from this site!

    This is the best mascara I have ever used- it actually makes my short, thin lashes look long and full - so maybe it is best for those of us NOT blessed with gorgeous lashes already!

        This is terrible! It straightened out my previously curled lashes, clumped all over my lashes (and the end of the wand, too) and the tube is so fat and cumbersome that I could barely hold onto it. I saw some good reviews on TV, but I don't know what they're talking about. I felt taken in.

        I do like this mascara, I really do. It has good length and definition, and great staying power (duh, it's waterproof). The only thing is I wear contacts and it flakes- a lot. I actually had to throw one of my contacts away because the waterproof formula would not come out after it got on it. Good mascara- just not for contact lens wearers.

        I bought the waterproof version of this by mistake, but I'm sure that the regular version is not far off. Regarding the brush, handle with care!!! It is rather large and clumsy. I have also noticed that the mascara does not wipe off of the brush near the end of the brush - it just sort of stays on there in a huge glob... and that's what usually ends up on my lashes - a huge glob!! I have one giant eyelash because 1) I don't have very many lashes in the first place and 2) the space between the bristles is too great for my poor little lashes. My last comment is regarding the waterproof part of the mascara - how the heck do you get it off??? I have tried soap and water, make up remover, EYE makeup remover, baby oil... it's driving me nuts!

        Brush is great for preventing clumps. However, chunky shape of handle makes it hard. And I turned into raccoon-lady after ten minutes when I put on mascara while wearing concealer under my eyes. I think brush on LashExact product is better, though still a raccoon challenge.

        First, yes it will stay on your skin if you don't remove it before it dries because it is WATERPROOF. Second, it is not clumpy at all. And it does give you big lashes. I'd say about 20% fuller than any other mascara I've ever tried and I've tried my fair share. The trick is to apply a coat to one side, a coat to the other and then back to the first in that order. One coat probably will not be enough; you need three or so coats. Sometimes I get a few flakes but it's usually if I rub around my eyes. I have gotten so many compliments on my eyelashes since I've been using this mascara.

        I don't know how to be clearer than to say: DO NOT buy this product! It DOES NOT WORK! It is a box of "epic fail" from start to finish; globby, clumpy, runny, and on top of that, it doesn't even stick to your eyelashes very well. It does, however, stick to the skin under your eyes for DAYS. This is, hands down, the WORST mascara I've ever bought, and that includes the scary bright blue stuff I bought for .99 cents in 1987. I would give it zero stars if I could.

        DON'T BOTHER. Not worth the hype. The brush delivers WAY too much mascara on the brush. If you don't wipe half the mascara off the brush first, you'll end up with a MESS
