My HG waterproof mascara
July 12, 2020
This mascara lives up to its hype - completely waterproof, including how incredibly hard it is to remove. Still, I love this enough to deal with that.
Tidbit about me - I'm Asian, with short straight lashes. Yes, I use an eyelash curler and that provides a temporary lift, but none of the Western mascaras I've used holds the curl like this one. This mascara defines my lashes, makes them appear longer, and stays curled until I am ready to remove my makeup.
How waterproof is it? If you get some on your lids when applying, you better get to it or it is there to stay. I've worn this to weddings. I've been in the rain with this on. I've cried in this (dramas included). Water parks, swimming, the list goes on. You know how you would wipe your lashes after crying or getting wet, and you come away with black streaks? This doesn't do any of that!!
Staying power? I'm guilty of being lazy some nights and sleeping with my makeup on (not advocating for this), but wow, my lashes still looked incredible the morning after.
FYI this mascara does not budge after using my foam cleanser. I had better luck with oil cleansers but still had to go in with cotton swabs afterwards. What worked for me was a biphasic eye makeup remover before cleansing. Be gentle to your lashes and give the remover some time to work its magic.
