I have semi-oily skin and eyelids so I always have to mix waterproof mascara with a regular mascara to get the best of both worlds...this is the best combo I've found so far and have been using the last few months ever since the real lashes got long. I use koji lash curler #71 that I got at Mitsuwa market last year. first I do a layer of loreal "voluminous" waterproof mascara (I wipe off the excess and this helps to volumize and separate) and then wait for it to set and do another later of ysl "faux cil" (this lengthens and darkens). this combo holds my curls all day and doesn't transfer! A in my book!
