5 Best Waterproof Mascaras – Summer Eyes

I tested several waterproof mascaras and found that the following five waterproof mascaras kept their promise to not run, lasted for hours and kept my lashes looking luscious despite numerous dips in the pool, the hot tub, the ocean and the outdoor rinse off shower.

  1. Maybelline’s Great Lash Waterproof Mascara ($5-$7)
  2. Lancome L’Extrême Waterproof($24)
  3. Laura Mercier Waterproof Mascara ($20)
  4. Clinique Waterproof Mascara ($14)
  5. Diorshow Blackout Waterproof Mascara ($24)

My personal favorite of the top five waterproof mascaras is the Lancome L’Extreme Waterproof. Do you have a favorite waterproof mascara?

    I love Definicil from Lancome in Black. I tried most of the popular mascaras you mentionned above and they don’t work well for me as I have tricky asian eyes. I recently discovered LaFace which is a korean brand and I love their mascara.

    Hi Kay,

    Thanks for your comment and info on LaFace.

    I love Definicil (non-waterproof) from Lancome also – overall Lancome has, in my opinion, really awesome mascaras. I had tried several other waterproof mascaras and the two I absolutely hated were CoverGirl Lash Blast – swear that one was the devil to get off and it clumped terribly. I actually lost eyelashes. The other one I seriously disliked was from Mary Kay Signature Waterproof mascara – the worst $10 I’ve ever spent.

    My eyes are my best feature and I always like to play them up – so trying out mascaras is like a hobby for me, and as a hopelessly addicted makeup junkie I will be googling LaFace – cause I really want to try it now :)

    My favorite mascara under $10 is Lash Out by L’Oreal. I have to ware waterproof mascara. If I don’t, my eyelashes will uncurl and be a disaster.

    I am also unable to use mascara unless it is waterproof and because of my current budget, I have found this information to be very helpful. I am going to consider giving these brands a try. There are many brands of mascara that I have tried but one brand that I have always used is E.L.F Cosmetics because of their affordable prices.
