my absolute favorite *day-time* mascara is Loreal Voluminous Naturale. it is fantastic. it never clumps and it is the most appropriate amount of volume for the day. i hate seeing girls walking around with a ton of mascara when the sun is out. heavy, volume-building mascara should be left for going out in the evenings. anyway, the best thing about this mascara is that it comes off in clumps when you wash it off, it doesn't smear down your face! all you have to do is wet your lashes and the mascara almost comes off in tube-like chunks!
