Whether you enjoy being in the water or are a teary person, these days it’s perfectly reasonable to want flawless lashes always regardless of the environment you’re in. 

With waterproof mascaras, you get to swim and/or cry to your heart’s content, and still look amazing without getting panda eyes.

What’s the difference between waterproof and non waterproof mascara?

Waterproof mascara is a great choice for those who are looking for a mascara with real holding power. This holding power is also what makes waterproof mascara superior to non-waterproof mascara in terms of holding in curls, especially for straight lashes. 

However, this also means that the removal of waterproof mascara is more challenging compared to a non-waterproof one. Hence, dermatologists advise using an oil-based makeup remover then finish off with a gentle cleanser to remove excess oily residue.

Have a look at these waterproof mascaras we have lined up for you.
