Q: I'm addicted to black mascara, but it gets all over my face when I run. Is there a brand that won't run down my cheeks? (And if it's waterproof, can you recommend a gentle remover that won't require lash-breaking scrubbing?)

A: I am a notorious smudger.  I have found tubular mascaras such as the one made by Blinc to be my salvation.  The mascara only comes off when you apply a tiny amount of soap and warm water.  Be warned, it comes off in “sheets” which is I guess why they named it tubular mascara.
