Maybe I have just been lucky, but none of my mascara has ever flaked in my eye. I switch brands and types a lot, but I always buy Waterproof types mascara. Maybe that is the difference.

I solved that whole mascara thing by not wearing mascara when I wear my contacts or if I do wear it I put on very little. Those little flakes can really burn if it gets in the eye with the lens.

Actually I use a high-tolerance, fragrance-free, smudge-proof mascara, that has a very low wax content, and is totally compatible with contact lenses. They have it in brown, green, black, sapphire, blue, anthracite, ultramarine, and claret. The web address is listed below

I always wear mascara when I have contacts in. Never had much of a problem with flaking though, I think it really depends on the type of mascara that you buy and how old it is. Sometimes when people keep their mascara tubes around for so long they lose some of thier properties and begin to flake or smear more.

To avoid this issue make sure you are replacing your mascara regularly, this will also keep down on the bacteria that is growing in there. Also you can try waterproof mascara which is a lot less likely to budge.

I wear a waterproof mascara and it doesn't flake at all. A friend of mine has that problem every now and then only because she cakes on the mascara. I use "Great Lash waterproof" by Maybelline.

If you put the mascara on first, is it possible to accidentally brush some of it off into your eyes when you're putting your contacts in?
