Seriously I need new mascara but it seems every one I've tried, smears under my eyes after at least 4-5 hours.

Hi there!

iVillage has a great Makeup Tips board that you may want to visit.

I have worn Avon's Wash-off Waterproof mascara since high school. It is truly water proof, too. I was a life guard for years. I have tested it thorough all sorts of crying and bawling. I will not use another mascara. It coats well. Stays on all day. It comes in black, brown/black and brown. It comes off easily with whatever you wash your face with too. (I use Target brand face wipes.) I order it by the handful when it's on sale in the Avon catalog for $2.99! heck, even at the regular $5.99 price, it's a steal.

I like CoverGirl Lash Blast, but I've never had problems with any mascara smearing under my eyes (except if I go swimming under the water)... Good luck though!

Thanks! I've always wondered if it had something to do with my eyes being somewhat almond shaped.I've used so many brands over the years, and I always have black smearing under my eyes after 4-5 hours. It's so annoying, it makes me not even want to wear mascara.

I use maybeline one by one volume express in waterproof. I have always used maybelines waterproof mascaras and had good luck with them all. The one by one definitely gives you extra volume too!

We recently went camping with no chance of shower saturday and sunday, so I decided to try Maybelline Falsies in waterproof because I cant go that long without makeup. Usually if I forget to take my makeup off when I go to bed it smears BADLY
