As soon as summer hits, I usually switch to a waterproof mascara… even though I prefer the formula of my regular mascara, I just can’t take the chance of smudges, dripping, and other summer-in-the-city beauty faux pas. For that reason I was delighted to discover that a crop of new “mascara top coats” have arrived in stores, allowing you to top off your regular mascara with a waterproof coat that refuses to budge. I’ve tried versions (pictured above) from both Bare Minerals and By Terry and love them both. Added bonus: the By Terry formula is a little bit glossier which can be really pretty.
Do they make your mascara harder to get off? That’s my number one issue with waterproof.
It does make it a little harder, but a good remover (I love Klorane) will take it right off!
I had never heard of these, what a novel idea! These are definitely perfect for the summertime.
