Does it darken the vachetta after application?
Not at all! I didn't start using cadillac until after a patina developed on this bag, but I have used it on weeks old vachetta with no darkening. It's just so easy to use ... no risk of uneven application causing marks, no sticky or greasy feel, no stress!

One more thing - I actually got black ink all over the handles some time after I first applied the Cadillac. I think the ink got on my hand from some grocery item (expiration date ink that was running on a wet plastic wrapping). After I noticed it, I used Cadillac to clean it off and you can't even tell!

Does it also waterproof the vachetta or just condition it?
I think it makes the vachetta water resistant (drops just bead up and don't absorb quickly) but not waterproof. Cadillac also makes a spray for water and stain protection that I use on shoes, but I just use the conditioner for bags.
