Best Waterproof Mascara

This mascara is the definition of waterproof! I tested in the shower and in the rain and my lashes still looked perfect- no smudging or flaking! It gives my lashes volume, length, and definition. I've had several people ask if I had fake lashes and then wanted to touch them just to make sure. I will definitely be repurchasing this.

Love its lasting power

I wear this almost everyday and it is an essential item in my makeup collection. A little goes a long way. It can be worn alone or under eyeshadow as a primer. It makes my eyeshadow last all day and it has never creased on me. Though it is creamy, I find it to be a little on the drier side which is what I prefer. The Urban Decay one was too oily for me and I prefer MACs paint pot hands down.

Creases and oily

This is the second time around that I am trying UDPP and with the same results. I find this eye primer to be oily and it makes my eyeshadow crease at the end of a long day. I have fairly normal lids (not dry, not oily) and only use just enough of this product to cover from lash line to browbone but it still creases on me. I know a lot of people swear by this primer but I don't find that it works for me.


Burt's Bees does no wrong with chapsticks/ lip balms. I have a few lip shimmers and love them all eqaully. Great color range from light to dark, so I'm sure everyone will find one to their liking. Moisturizes my lips well and has a tingly, cooling sensation. And love their small size- perfect for my pocket or wristlet.


Lorac does it again. Their eyeshadows are amazing quality! They are so soft, almost creamy. They give great color payoff and blend easily. I've tried them with and without primer and have no creasing at the end of the day. Great color range with some unique colors.

Not for me

I think I'm in the minority for this. I don't like it. I have normal lids and found this to be oily and it creases on me. I apply a thin layer, let it dry, and apply my eyeshadow and it still creases.

Great neutral palette

I love my neutrals and this palette is perfect. UD shadows are of great quality- great pigmentation and easy to blend. The shades range from light to dark which makes it versatile for endless looks- soft day looks to smokey, dramatic night looks.
