Comments about Catrice Prêt-à-Volume Smokey Waterproof Mascara:
I bought the waterproof version and it is absolutely lovely. The brush is slightly larger than lets say a L'Oreal voluminous (but not ridiculously large) and the bristles have a nice level of separation that gives it that "fluffy" brush look. It has the classic Christmas tree shape with regular bristles (not spikey plastic). Removal is simple and pain free and I didn't loose any lashes (tho I do use a cleansing oil before my face wash and that removes almost all of my makeup and waterproof mascara). Also the color is black, but not a "blackest" black.
I have decent lashes, but they tend to lose their curl. So I always use waterproof to keep the curl. This mascara kept the curl I got from my lash curler, and retained the curl throughout the day. The formula is slightly on the dry side (essentially perfect for me as too glossy or wet of a formula undoes my curl) and has a matte finish. I have been able to go with 3 coats of this mascara and it builds on itself beautifully. No clumps, no odd pointing tips (some mascaras build strangely on the tips of my lashes), and best of all no smudging or flaking. So the waterproof section: I accidentally fell asleep with my make up on (YIKES!) and I am a face down sleeper, I wake up and my lashes still look incredible! They were still full and fluttery and looked as wonderful as they did when I first applied. I love the look I get with this mascara, that thick, fluttery, long curl look. I am very pleased with this mascara.
