I never understood why people spent so much money on mascara. Although I believe in investing in your skin care and understand the difference when it comes to the quality of makeup, when it comes to mascara I always relied on my favourite drugstore brand to do the trick… until now!
Introducing Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara. Before I get into the nitty gritty, can we just take a moment to appreciate this beautiful packaging? It’s stunning. So sleek and simple, but so elegant. Can you tell that I’m a sucker for packaging? Ok, now let’s get down to business.
What is it?
A double-volumizing and lengthening mascara that delivers intense colour and 12-hour non-stop waterproof hold. Just what you need for summer. The formula protects lashes against moisture (think humidity and water), while protecting your lashes from the harsh effects of seawater, pool water and the sun.
The brush is fairly simple in shape and size. But don’t let it fool you. It grabs each and every lash to evenly distribute the product with ZERO clumps. With other mascaras, once I’ve pulled the brush from the tube, I’ve had to wipe off the excess product before applying to avoid the dreaded spider lashes. But not with this mascara. The formula is evenly applied, defining each and every lash perfectly. The result is not only longer, more voluminous lashes, it’s longer, more voluminous lashes that still look natural no matter how many coats I apply.
I am absolutely in love with this product! It has become my FAVOURITE mascara. The colour is super intense and it just makes my eyes sparkle. I’ve had issues with other mascaras smudging under my eyes throughout the day, casting that less-than-flattering shadow under my eyes (think about the girl in the bad lighting in Seinfeld), but not with this one. It stays perfectly in place (seriously, I’ve worn it swimming) and comes clean off with waterproof makeup remover. Like what you’re reading? Then seriously get this mascara and get ready to fall in love!
The Truly Waterproof Mascara by Clarins is available in two shades, Intense Black and Curaçao, and is offered at the suggested retail price of $27 CAD.
