Whether you're working out, in the heat on holiday or even just having a shower, waterproof mascara is a staple for every woman. However, knowing the best ones to use is no easy task (panda eyes are never a good look), so we've rounded up our top 5 faves for you to try.
This award-winning mascara plumps and curls every single lash but also stays on all day. Its magic formula is not only waterproof but it's also full of fruit extracts, which helps condition and protect lashes while lengthening them at the same time. That isn’t even the best part, this mascara refuses to budge, it doesn’t flake and will stay on all day. It has a squeezy tube so you get every last bit of product and of course your money’s worth. This lightweight but heavy duty formula means it is ideal for everyday use. Trust us on this one, it won’t let you down.
This tried and tested mascara is a firm favourite and now comes in an equally amazing waterproof formula. It can withstand heat and humidity and produces the same dramatic lashes that the original mascara does. This is a best seller at Sephora and its hourglass wand helps to thicken, lengthen and curl your lashes. The mascara produces maximum length without them clumping and is on top of all that waterproof and smudge proof and at a great price.
Although this is not the cheapest of mascaras, it definitely had to be on our favourites list. Due to its incredible silky smooth formula, which prevents clumping, the mascara applies like a dream. It has an almost whipped texture and this in combination with its small wand means that lashes are lengthened and thickened without too much product being deposited. Its small wand means that you can get to every single lash, right to the roots, making them look extremely plump. If that isn’t enough to tempt you, then the range of colours this mascara comes in should!
Clinique's mascara produces extremely long black lashes. Its jet black formula stays all day and means lashes look instantly longer. Layering is not a problem with this mascara – you can layer this mascara as many times as you want to maximise volume and your lashes don’t feel heavy or look clumpy. It evenly coats your lashes and stays on them no matter how much water they're exposed to.
Last but not least! This mascara not only keeps your lashes perfectly curled all day but also holds your lashes in place for a long time after application. One swipe is enough to evenly coat all your lashes and make them look longer and fuller. It has a light formula and doesn’t flake while still plumping your lashes. It volumises without clumping, and on top of all that is waterproof and smudge proof. Its formula means that application is quick and has great results and there is no need to scrub when you remove it. What’s not to like?
