  1. Black, washable and I like voluminous types too! I do wear waterproof when I'm running a race!

  2. Yep, same here: black, volumizing, washable. Although I do cheat and use Ulta's Raincoat waterproof topcoat on top of whatever I'm using since my eyes tend to water occasionally.

  3. Same. Black, volumizing, washable (unless I'm going to be crying).

  4. I tend to prefer lengthening and black mascaras, although I am always on the lookout for a good brown, plum or navy blue. Waterproof, never!

  5. I tend to prefer lengthening and black mascaras, although I am always on the lookout for a good brown, plum or navy blue. Waterproof, never!

  6. My lashes NEED waterproof. They barely even hold a curl with that! I wish they would release a miracle curling mascara at the drugstore level

    1. Emilynoel on Youtuve mentions similar problems with holding a curl, you might want to check out her mascara reviews for some tips and tricks.

  7. Black, prefer a formula that does both but would pick length over volume if I had to, washable.

  8. Black, lengthening, separating and washable. Time to time I like to use the Almay plum coloured mascara from the collection that is tailored towards your eye colour. I will buy waterproof if it is on super clearance and the only option.

  9. Black since navy is next to impossible to find. Voume for sure. Washable.

  10. Black, either, washable. To explain, I love colored mascaras so I"d love a green, purple, blue or any other color over black, but own a lot of black because it's the most common.(duh) I'm such a novice to mascara with naturally long thick eyelashes that either type seems about the same to me. And part of the reason I don't wear mascara is because it's such a bitch to get off, so I definitely need something washable so I don't end up tearing my (eyelash) hair out!

  11. Black and "natural" bristle brushes for me, rubbery spikey brushes are a no-go.
