I have a question, does this mascara seriously make tubes around your eyelashes? Like, seriously? What does it feel like? Does it feel heavier than other mascaras?

The mascara actually feels lighter than regular oil-based mascaras due to the lack of dried up clumps. The tubes actually make lashes feel spikier instead of volumising, which has been a critique by many users, another reason why Blinc developed a lash primer. Basically if you already have dark lashes it works miracles, but isn't as effective for lighter colours.
As for removing, the mascara does come off as little tubes, though not to the effect of seeing through the hollow center since it's so small. All it took was warm water and a few seconds of rubbing and voila - gunk gone!

I'm sorry, but after trying this mascara, it just drove me nuts. I could 'feel' the tubes on my eyelashes, and could not help but keep pulling them off my eyes. And heavens if you get a little tube in your eye. It's murder. As a professional makeup artist, I don't understand the hype this mascara is getting. It was super thin going on, made no thickness or lengthening of the lashes.
For major lashes try Lancome's. Any of them. THAT's a mascara.

What about Maybelline Great Lash? I always heard that was a favourite among makeup artists.

Kiss Me mascara is great for someone who doesn't wear much make up and wants a subtle look.  It's so easy to take off at the end of the day and actually comes off in tubes - the first time I thought I was taking off my eyelashes!  It doesn't smudge either.

I have long lashes that curl naturaly with good volume, so it's perfect for me. Most mascara today have special volumizing, lenghtening or curling formulas there are almost no "ordinary" formulas. I also have very oily skin, even the waterproof formulas end up creating dark circle under my eyes after a few hours. But this mascara lasts all day, does not smudge even in extreme humid weather, I even slept with it on once and it looked as great in the morning as when I put it on the day before. It's extremely easy to remove if you use a lot of warm water. It does have a tendancy to clump my lashes together a bit.

I always find the removal of mascara the worst. I have sensitive eyes that water all the time (even strong smelling toothpaste), so mascara that doesn't *move* at all is an interesting option.

How to keep it from flaking?

I recently bought the new mascara from L'Oreal with collagen. The biggest bullsh*t if ever bought! It feels good when applying it but even if you touch your lashes a bit or take a nap they transform to ONE big lash which looks shit and shouldn't happen with a £10 mascara.
