Does the perfect waterproof mascara really exist?
Q: “I am yet to find the perfect mascara for me that is waterproof, doesn’t smudge and is affordable for me. $20 is the max I can spend…Is there actually one out there?” – Jatz
A: We hear you loud and clear Jatz. But luckily you’ve asked the question in the right place, because we’ve got some great (and affordable) waterproof mascara options to help you solve this cosmetics conundrum. Here are just a few of our faves:
COVERGIRL Lash Exact Mascara – waterproof variant
This is without a doubt my ‘holy grail’ waterproof mascara. I wear it every day and through rain, tears (and there’ve been a few!) and swims in the sea it stays perfectly in place. Word on the street is that they’re going to be discontinuing this line soon (so devastated!) so if you get the chance grab some while you can! If not, the COVERGIRL LashBlast Length Mascara in the waterproof variant is also a fab buy for under $20.
Rimmel 100% Waterproof Mascara
With an overall member rating of 4/5 stars, we can pretty much put our money on the fact that this waterproof mascara will go the distance. And coming in at $12.50, you’ll be able to buy this baby and have spare change for another cheap and cheerful beauty buy too!
essence Stays On and On Volume Mascara
Ok, so while it’s not technically a waterproof mascara, the formula is smudge-proof and smear-proof, so you can be assured that it if you happen to rub your eyes it won’t end up halfway down your face. Plus at $5.95 it’s affordable enough to give it a road-test without feeling like you’re splashing too much cash on a product you’ve never tried.
