I tried the non waterproof version first. When I saw the ad for this mascara when it first came out I was so captivated by it. It promised definition plus it was suppose to hold a curl!!!
The shape of the brush was also very intriguing to me also. It promised to really get into my lashes which I agree it did.
I can't say I was disappointed. I loved this mascara at the time. It has a wet formulation and applies easily and I didn't have clumping issues. My only issue was that it smudged under my eye at the end if the day.
Then I saw Rimmel finally came out with a waterproof version of this mascara. I was so thrilled. I hated this version. It had such a dry formula that didn't coat my lashes well. I didn't see it perform too much better than it's non waterproof counterpart when it came to non smudging. I still experienced slight smearing.
I would recommend the non waterproof version of the sexy curves. It performs well and is a very decent mascara. I would not recommend the non waterproof one because I think the formulation is unimpressive.
