I was on the search for the perfect waterproof mascara 2 years ago. I participant in a Secret Santa deal on a forum I belong to and I got a set of several waterproof mascaras sold at Sephora. One of the first ones that caught my eye and made a lasting impression was Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Splashes! 4-in-1 Waterproof Mascara.
This baby lasts all day! The formula was smooth and wet, perfect for trouble-free application on my lashes. It does give that polished look to my lashes while adding volume. The waterproof part? You bet it works! It stays on and lasts all day. You will need a waterproof makeup remover to get this off your lashes. Regular face washing works for the most part. If you’re a person who cleanses your face quite gently though, there will be some residue left over from your face washing ritual. Waterproof makeup remover is still the best way to go and there are various kinds out there in different price ranges to choose from. Mascara tube indicates the expected life of the product is 6 months from first use.
Verdict? Will definitely buy again! That is, after I’ve gone through the rest of the mascaras I’m trying. You can purchase this mascara at various retail and online stores such as Sephora or ULTA for $19 before taxes.
