Best Waterproof Mascaras


Summer can prove fatal for your mascara. Sweat, the beach and the pool can all cause even the most loyal mascara to smudge, flake off and run down your face. We know how frustrating makeup-induced panda eyes can be, so we've picked out the top 3 waterproof mascaras that won't let you down—even when you hit the waves!

Urban Decay Cannonball Waterproof Mascara

Wende Zomnir, the co-founder of Urban Decay, really wanted a mascara that no water could budge, so she tested this formula on a wild trek through waterfalls, over streams and through the jungle. The end result—waterproof perfection. It's also smudge- and flake-free!

SENSAI by Kanebo 38ºC Lengthening and Separating Mascara

This Japanese tubing formula only washes off in very warm water—water in a temperature above 38ºC to be exact. The mascara's pricey, but its ability to build up and stay put (without clumping) is incredible. If you keep applying coats, it'll look like you have false lashes on! And if the water- and melt-proof formula can withstand Japan's humid summers, it will work anywhere.

L'Oréal Voluminous Million Waterproof

The super thick brush on this wand is made of two different lengths so that even those tiny lashes at the inner and outer corners of your eyes will get a coating of this volumizing formula. The rich formula really stays put put for hours and is allergy tested, so even beauties with sensitive eyes can use it. A great drugstore option for summer!
