(ignore the 2 zits btw....or at least try to ? I think EM is great for evening out skintone but not actually covering up really red areas)

Also,

Blinc mascara I like :)

Pros: Keeps a curl nicely and removes easily with water / facial wash without getting onto undereye area. Appears to lengthen because the lashes stay curled -> thus they look longer.

Cons: Doesn't do much for volume, actual lengthening is only a little bit. Lashes do look longer, but its because they are kept curled up thus creating the illusion of length.

Conclusion:
Great everyday mascara, especially since it supposedly is waterproof. It should come off lashes only when water + pressure are both applied to lashes. Comes off cleanly - no need to remove dark smudges from undereye area unlike regular mascaras.
Doesn't lengthen a whole lot, and fails to thicken lashes, but thats why its a great natural looking, everyday mascara. If you want the whole fake lashes look, then use L'oreal Voluminous instead.
