Kudos to Kjaer Weiss for creating a clean, natural mascara. I experienced no under-eye smudging, and I use very hydrating products around the eye area. I found the mascara clings to my eyelashes when removing with oil cleanser, and it takes some time to loosen it. It also seemed to dry out and become tacky after a few weeks of use, making it difficult to glide over my lashes. I had high hopes this would be my perfect mascara, but I think I will keep searching.
