Directions from packaging:

Start with one eye and apply both Step 1 and Step 2 to the lashes, by placing the brush at the base of lashes and gently sweeping up to tip. Next, apply both Step 1 and Step 2 to the opposite eye. For best results, apply Step 2 directly after Step 1 - no need to wait for drying time in between! Step 1: Nourishing Base Coat: The rich base coat infused with Ceramide R and D-Panthenol protects, nourishes and strengthens the lashes creating the perfect base for tube application. Step 2: Ultra Lengthening Tube Top Coat: As the mascara sets, it envelopes your lashes in small tubes that act like lash-lengthening extensions: lashes look up to 80% longer! The tubes nave impeccable hold and wear, so they will not smudge, smear, run, or flake. Step 3: Easy, Smudge-Free Removal: The mascara tubes remove easily with plenty of warm water, without the need for makeup remover. When washing your face, simply smooth the tubes away from your lashes with your fingertips, or hold a cotton pad soaked in warm water on the lashes for 30 seconds. With plenty of warm water, tubes will remove gently without any smudges or smears.

Warnings from packaging:

To safeguard L'Oreal purity, reserve this product for your personal use. Treat the applicator with the hygienic care you give your eyes. Never apply this product in a moving vehicle. Do not dilute mascara with water saliva, or any other substance. Cap tightly after use. If change in odor or appearance occurs, discontinue use. Do not use this or any other eye cosmetic if your eye is injured, irritated, or infected. Consult a physician promptly.
