For many women, waterproof mascara is a summer necessity, especially if you live in an insatiably hot and humid climate. In many cases, waterproof mascara offers a nice advantage in comparison to typical mascara.It holds up to heat, humidity, sweat and tears. The choices in prices, brands and features can be overwhelming. One thing, however, is certain- there is no need to choose between having fun and looking great. Let’s take a look at five waterproof mascaras that hold up to both water and the summer heat.
Avon Wash-Off Waterproof Mascara: One of the most frustrating things about wearing waterproof mascara is getting it off. In many cases you need a special solution, and even then it can be hard to take it all off. With Avon’s Wash-Off Waterproof Mascara, there is no need to scrub your eyelids raw or use any sort of special solution. Retailing at $6.50, this waterproof mascara is an excellent choice.
DiorShow Waterproof Mascara: While DiorShow is a little pricier in comparison to some mascaras, it is worth it. I’ve used both the waterproof and non waterproof variety, and this mascara is by far my favorite. It stays on, doesn’t clump, extends the length of your lashes, and does everything it claims to do. You can purchase DiorShow at Sephora, in stores or online, for $24.00.
Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara: Maybelline Great Lash mascara is one of the most recognizable drug store brand mascaras, with its pink and green casing. It’s won quite a few awards over the years including Allure and Teen Vogue Readers’ Choice Awards. It’s available at most all drugstores. Priced at less than $5.00, it is by far the most budget friendly option.
Lancome Defincils Waterproof Mascara: Another pricey option, retailing for $24.00, Definicils Waterproof mascara is loved by its users for its durability. If you’re going to a wedding and want to look great but are scared your mascara can’t stand up to the tears, or want your lashes to look great all day while you swim, Lancome Definicils is for you.
Max Factor Stretch & Separate Waterproof Mascara: This budget friendly waterproof mascara is another great drugstore find. It costs a little over $6.00, and does just as the name implies- lifting and separating the lashes. Max Factor’s Stretch and Separate mascara is night out or for daytime wear, with no smudging or clumping.
