I have had problems with mascara flaking off and/or giving me raccoon eyes after a few hours. This is the *only* one that doesn't do that! But looks like it's being phased out by Sephora, grab it while you can. Good deep dark black color. One con is that once it dries (within a minute or so), you really cannot add another coat. It's just too dry so I would recommend just adding more coats while it's still wet. I'm sorry to see this one go, really don't know what I'll do once my two tubes are gone!
