6 Must-Have Waterproof Mascara for Smudge-proof, Luscious Lashes

Have you ever experienced mascara running? I have. It’s horrifying. One minute I have these fluttery lashes and the next minute I look like I just came out of watching The Notebook for the first time. Through years of tests, trials and tears I’ve found the best mascaras that will stay put. Now that it’s officially #sunsoutgunsout weather, here are a few of my favourite waterproof mascaras to carry you through this hot and humid weather.

Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara

First on the list is the holy grail of all waterproof mascaras. I’ve done countless research and tried my very best to find a less exorbitant dupe for this concoction but to no avail. I have never encountered another mascara that holds up well against humidity, my excessively oily eyelids, sweat, tears and water. Loaded with pro-vitamin b5, this mascara keeps your lashes looking separated, clump-free and long all the while assisting in keeping them healthy and luscious.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Mascara

This absolute must-have is not as lavish as the Chanel mascara but this bad boy packs just as much punch. Also containing panthenol which promotes moisture retention and hair elasticity, this mascara not only applies like a dream regardless of the amount of coats you apply, it also keeps them supple and healthy.

YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Luxurious Mascara

The name absolutely lives up to its reputation. So luxurious, this mascara has been on the top of my list due to the fact that it gives me longer and fuller lashes. It does not clump up no matter how many coats I layer on and it never fails to keep my eyes from looking like I came out from cosplaying as a racoon. It does have a strong scent to it (as with all YSL beauty products) but it does not linger and makes for an enjoyable application.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

Honest-to-goodness, true to its name mascara. This product retains lashes after curling and the curved brush allows for individual lash coating. It’s absolutely sweat and cry proof but can easily be removed with an oil-based eye makeup remover. It gives volume to your lashes and lengthens for good measure.

Lancôme Monsieur BIG Waterproof Mascara

Recently released, this mascara is exactly what it sounds like. Comparable to Mr. Big from Sex and the City, this amazing product makes you feel like you’re the only woman in the world to have longer, fuller and fluttery eyelashes. More than that, it stays on your lashes and does not budge until you want it to.

Clarins Double Fix’ Mascara

Not one to shy away from the “no makeup” makeup trend, the Clarins Double Fix Mascara has been my go to throughout the years. Used alone, it sets my curled lashes and keeps them in place and the same use for my eyebrows for those days when I want to look au naturel. The best part about this product? If you have your favourite mascara that isn’t waterproof but would like to have that effect? Apply on top and you’re good to go.

Grab one or two (especially that Clarins Double Fix’) of these products and enjoy your hot summer days wherever it may be and rest assured that the only thing running will be the AC because this heat isn’t going anywhere for a while.
