Are you suffering from “raccoon eyes” by lunch? It is probably because you are still using a non-waterproof mascara and you are suffering from the ever annoying mascara smudge. You leave the house with beautiful full lashes, and by time coffee break comes around, you suddenly look like you are going through a goth stage in your mid 30s. While Taylor Momsen may be able to pull off this look, I do not recommend it for daywear. Hence, the need for waterproof mascara. Here is a list of the top 5 waterproof mascaras for every budget:
TOP 5 waterproof Mascara
1. Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara, Very Black
This is a cult classic. Women have been using Great lash since the 1970s, and this inexpensive mascara is still going strong. Not only do women love its affordability, many top make-up artists claim that it works just as good as the more expensive brands. This mascara never clumps, separates lashes and lasts all day. And all that for under 5 bucks, who could ask for more.
2. Christian Dior DiorShow Blackout Waterproof Mascara.
This is the mascara I am currently using, and I love it. It is more expensive than a drugstore brand (about $25), but it is so worth it! My lashes were looking a little lack luster, shall we say. Upon the first application of DiorShow, my lashes looked longer and thicker. And the plus is that it does not smudge, even though it is a deep, deep black. If you can splurge, I highly recommend this one.
3. Benefit They’re Real Mascara
If you are looking for a glamorous lash look, then Benefit’s They’re Real is the best waterproof mascara for you. The well designed bristles grab your lashes at the root, taking your lashes to a whole new height. Your lashes will be well defined, and of course, no smudging. And the price (around $18) won’t break the bank.
4. Yves Saint Laurant Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara
Looking for drama? You will find it with this intense mascara. It is also one of the most expensive out there (around $30), but it is still cheaper than get lash extensions.
5. Clinique Las Power Mascara Long-Wearing Formula
If natural is your game, then this wonder from Clinique will suit you right. This mascara keeps your lashes looking pretty for 24 hours, and not a single smudge. Will also lengthen your lashes au natural.
