Essence Stays No Matter What 24h Volume Mascara

I was sent Essence Stays No Matter What 24h Volume Mascara* and I was eager to try it because I always struggle to find a mascara that won't smudge on me. I think it's fair to say the only mascara I have tried to date that doesn't smudge on me is Clinique's Bottom Lash Mascara.
This mascara promises to stay put for an ENTIRE day without smudging while volumizing your lashes at the same time but I pretty sure I will never need it to do the job for 24 hours (I'd be happy with 12). I've been using this for a few weeks now so I have a pretty good idea of whether it lives up to its claims or not.
First I'll tell you the good news. This mascara holds a curl all day long which is something that I can't say any of my other mascaras do. I actually found the hold quite impressive and was always amazed at how good my lashes looked at the end of the day. It's not the most volumizing mascara but I actually prefer a more natural look so the look it gave was pretty much perfect for me. It didn't stack up 100% in the no smudging area for me though. I had a few days where I made it without smudging but for the most part (I think due to the higher humidity) I had smudging by the end of the day. Please keep in mind that I am abnormally prone to smudging so if you aren't then this might work really well for you. It retails for $4.99 so it isn't going to break the bank and I think I would purchase this once I run out assuming I haven't found something else I want to try by then. 
What do you think?

  4. I never have too many problems with smudging (it's so dry hear for the most part that it's never really an issue) but the holding its curl part is exciting...I need a mascara that can do that!

  6. That sounds pretty good. My mascara never smudges, unless I make it smudge by rubbing my eyes like crazy. It has really cute packaging too

  7. Isn't this an organic line? That's pretty fantastic if it delivered for the most part. I always find that organic cosmetics don't stack up as well.

  8. I'm still wavering on if this mascara will work for me...but one mascara that I've found works for me and holds a curl is the One By One in Waterproof by Maybelline. xx
