Thick and leaves clumpy lashes

I bought this product mainly because of the small brush size which I find easier to use than those really big brushes, however I have found that this mascara is think and gloopy and leaves my eyelashes really clumpy. It also tends to leave a big gloop on the end of the brush which is really messy. I didn't get any smudges and it lasted all day, which is good, however I have never had any real problems with smudging before. Overall this product feels like a really old fashioned formula, rather than a modern mascara

The BEST for watery eyes!!!!

I have very sensitive, watery eyes during allergy season. This mascara rocks!!! It is the only one I will buy any more. It stays on all day. It never, ever smudges. If my eyes are severely tear and it is humid out, it may on occasion flake slightly, but you can just gently brush off the occasion tiny flake--it will not smudge like waterproof. You can easily wipe off mistakes with a wet q-tip if without having to redo your entire eye when applying. You can dab on warm water to easily remove it so you do not need to rub and tug the fragile skin around the eye or pull out eye lashes. It is not as messy as the other "tubing" mascaras out there--it is far superior to other mascaras of this type. This is worth the money--there is nothing that comes close.

Great-Performing Gel Eyeliner!

Usually, I've omitted eyeliner from my makeup regimen because the color has tended to always horribly smudge and fade on my lids, but I've finally found an eyeliner that does a fabulous job! Estee Lauder's Double Wear Gel Eyeliner is a high-quality eyeliner that goes on so smoothly, and doesn't fade, flake off, or fade throughout the course of a busy day. The small angled brush does a precise job of applying the liner, and the texture of the gel eyeliner is so wonderfully smooth going on, that I feel no tugging or irritation on my eyelids. And a little goes a long way. I use eyeshadow base/primer, and combined with EL's Pure Color eyeshadow, this gel eyeliner completes a wonderful long-lasting look! The brush does a great job of controlling how much or how little color to apply. I use the Stay Onyx (black) and it looks great (and stays put!). I agree with other reviewers that it's easier to handle than a liquid eyeliner (pen or brush) and even a pencil as well. Overall, EL's Double Wear Collection is fantastic! Thanks for another terrific product in this gel eyeliner! « less

Just the Trick!

I love this gel liner and use it every day! It is deep in color and stays put all day long. It glides on smoothly using the brush provided and works even better with a separately purchased fine liner. It can also be used to nicely smudge before it completely dries for a softer look.I had a hard time finding a good gel liner and went through a couple different brands, but Estee Lauder's gel liner is the best. I have somewhat oily skin and lids and it always stays put in the inner and outer corners of my eyes. It never flakes and crumbles like most the other brands and washes off with a gentle soap at the end of the day. It is waterproof so it will take a bit of coaxing off, but after I wash I use a dry cue-tip and rub the rest off the lash line before bed.I highly recommend this liner! It's great for your subtle everyday look, or can be bumped up for a more dramatic effect. « less

Lasts through tears

This mascara is the one mascara I buy no matter what, but I almost always buy two. Why? I have dry eye syndrome. My ophthalmologist plugged my tear ducts to help trap the tears in my eyes increasing moisture. It works fairly well, but sometimes my eyes overproduce tears. I also use eye drops a lot. This means that on top of drops running over my my eye makeup, a fan blowing on my face, a change in humidity, or who knows what will cause one eye or both to begin to sheet tears over my face removing almost every makeup I've tried. This is the only mascara I've found that will stay on over the course of the day. Yes, I've tried everything out there at all price points from the cheapest drugstore to the most expensive department store brands. Those that forms tubes scatter those tubes across my cheeks. Waterproof mascaras forms clumps under my lashes. Non-waterproof mascaras spread a haze under my eyes. This isn't my favorite mascara for length or fullness. My solution is to use it on my lower lashes. I usually use EL waterproof sumptuous mascara for the upper lashes with a final coat of double wear on top. If my eyes haven't been tearing over the past few days I can get away with using a different under layer brand of mascara, but I always like to seal it with a coat of double wear. Oh, and yes I've even tried the newest mascaras that you have to buy exclusive makeup removers for to take off. It took less than 15 minutes for my tears to remove that mascara. If I know I'm headed for day of all out makeup abuse like to a beach or travel, etc. I use just the doublewear to make sure it lasts. Using a layer of MAC paint pot under my eye shadow (instead of any eye shadow base) and a Laura Mercier gel eyeliner with Shiseido's Sun Protection Liquid Foundation SPF 42 PA+++ insures that I'll get to the end of the day and still need to remove my makeup. I've yet to find any other mascara, eye shadow, eye liner, or foundation that can last through my tearing problems. I highly recommend Doublewear Mascara if you're looking for a way to prevent smudging under the eyes and make your mascara last all day despite humidity, water, tears, crying, and anything else your day might through at it. « less
