Non-flaking tubing mascara

Any recommendations for a tubing mascara that does not end up under my eyes? Whatever I try, it flakes under my eyes and I get black smudging (without knowing most of the time!) Currently using Hourglass Unlocked. Have also tried the VB one but have the same problem. Any recommendations much appreciated!


I’ve heard really good things about this mascara:

It’s currently OOS but worth giving it a go as apparently it never smudges! Otherwise, I love Kevyn Aucoin’s tubing mascara and I also like Hourglass’ Unlocked - shame to hear it’s smudging for you!

I love the Rare Beauty Mascara – I used to always struggle with mascara smudging on my eyelid and flaking which doesn’t happen with this one!


I also love the Rare Beauty Mascara! So so good

My sister bought this one for me as I was having the same problem. So far… no smudging even after 12+ hours.

I’ve used the Estee Lauder one for years because every other mascara gives me panda eyes. You have to remove it with warm water. All my other make up is natural these days but won’t switch mascara because I’ve tried others since using this and nothing compares, really lengthens them as well.

Eyeko rock out & lash out is excellent. It doesn’t smear, run or flake in wear, yet it comes off so easily at the end of the day. I would highly recommend it.

Have you tried Lancôme Lash Idôle? Doesn’t seem to flake (so far).

Absolutely swear by this!!

I’ve been using Hourglass for 3 years!
it doesn’t move at all :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
It’s amazing and cruelty free X

This one from Trish McEvoy is brill - Trish McEvoy High Volume Mascara in Jet Black | Liberty

I think the hourglass one is amazing for non flaking xxx

I swear by the hourglass unlocked for the best length/volume but my top tip would be use a lash primer underneath which completely stops mascara from flaking. I’ve been using the Benefit They’re Real for 10+ years now - it’s the best

I like the Blink Brow Bar tubing mascara - no smudging or budging until you want to take it off :heart:

Kevyn Aucoin - The Volume Mascara is a fantastic tubing mascara, been using it for years. If I can’t get it The Hourglass tubing mascara is a very good alternative.

I second this one. Although it is not the easiest to find in stock
