According to the factual data I made up, almost all women who wear makeup believe that a stunning mascara and a good lipstick is all that they need. Despite the facts that I’m talking about, almost all beauty gurus around the world swear by ‘A Mascara’. I believe a nice voluminous mascara completes the whole makeup look.

And who wants to be a panda in a pool? I definitely don’t! And which is why I bring you, best waterproof mascaras to fall in love with their eyes and lashes all over again.

Best waterproof mascaras
Maybelline lash sensational mascara
Maybelline knows it’s mascaras. Rare are the chances that Maybelline mascaras will disappoint you.
I personally adore this power pack waterproof mascara. It will fan out your lashes, doubles the volume, adds a curling effect, and lengthens enough to give falsies effect. Also, it’s hybrid wand easily gets through the inner and outer corners of your lashes. But, it clumps a little bit after 3-4 coats and dries up real soon. So if you don’t like that, for the price, its an absolute must-have for me.
Loreal lash paradise mascara
If you are buying this one, I’m telling you, there’s no going back. It lengthens and volumizes your lashes at the same time to make it look like you have falsies on. And there is a Very minimum chance that your mascara will clump, flake, or smudge. Just 2-3 coats last you an entire day of rain or heat. But, it might feel a little bit sticky to some. And could clump your lashes after 3-4 coats.
In my opinion, I found both of them equally good. both are lengthening and volumizing mascaras with minimum clumps and flakes and both don’t smudge at all, even in water (after all it’s waterproof, lol, poor joke). But, Maybelline lash sensational is way cheaper than Lo’real lash paradise. If both do the exact same job, why spend more money?
NYX Worth the hype mascara
Another one of the great waterproof mascaras in the market. It is more of a voluminous mascara than lengthening. Fluffs out your lashes really big. Does not flake or smudge. Can last up to 6-8 hours! And, curls your lashes without a curler. But, it is very creamy so will not dry your lashes, instead, feels very comfortable on your eyes.
Maybelline hyper curl mascara
I told you, Maybelline knows it mascara. You can pick anyone with your closed eyes.
As the name suggests, it locks up your lashes into a nice beautiful curve and lengthens them as well. Price-wise, it’s super affordable and perfect for everyday use. But the problem lies in the clumpiness. It clumps a lot and gives you spider eyes. Also, this is not for people who want drama when they say mascara.
Rimmel London scandaleyes reloaded mascara
Hunting a better waterproof mascara than hyper curl? This is is the one. Just a little bit expensive than that but solves a lot of its problem.
This is so black, lengthening, volumizing and does what it says. One coat is enough to curl up your lashes and last you a minimum of 6-8 hours. Its wand is what I love the most. Separates out each lash gorgeously from root to tip.
LOreal volume million lashes mascara
Another super great mascara I can totally rave about. As pretty as lash sensational and lash paradise by Maybelline and Loreal itself.
Gives that fanned out effect, never clumps or smudges. Has a beautiful wand that separates out each lash and consistency is not at all drying. They say it works best for sensitive eyes as well. But, obviously a but because nothing’s just perfect, okay? But, it needs more than 2-3 coats to achieve that look. You have to keep working on it. If that doesn’t bother you, it’s oh-so-perfect.
Essence Lash Princess mascara
A mascara that defines and separates your lashes beautifully? It gives a dramatic length and a great volume (which I seriously loveeee!) The best part? It does not budge at all. It just doesn’t. And this is under $5.
Maybelline Total Temptation mascara
Another favorite waterproof mascara for sensitive eyes is this one. It the best voluminzing mascara put there for fresh day events or night occasions. As said, it does not clump, flake, or smudge. Plus, it has a delicious coconut-y smell to it. It sounds to me like something I would take on a vacation with.
Waterproof mascara FAQ’s
Is waterproof mascara better than regular mascara?
Now that depends on your preferences. If you feel like the mascara you are using smudges off your eyes or just doesn’t stay put, you definitely need to try some good waterproof mascaras then. But remember, since waterproof mascaras are little drying and maybe best for summer or rainy season, it is not advisable for everyday use, or maybe, you want to look for waterproof mascaras with lash-conditioning properties.
Is it bad to wear waterproof mascaras?
Well, I don’t think so. Obviously, they are a bit too drying because they are meant to uphold your lashes the entire day, and the regular formula is not what will do that. You must use waterproof mascaras alternate days and remove them very gently with some oil-based cleansers. DO NOT USE MAKEUP WIPES as they are surely gonna trigger pulling and tugging.
What are the best possible ways to remove waterproof mascaras?
Definitely wet wipes are not the way to go. You need to massage an oil-based cleanser first. And leave it on for 20-30 seconds and gently remove it with cotton pads or whatever you prefer. Check out some DIY homemade makeup removers which are quite easy to make and costs you almost nothing.
And, I think that’s it for some best waterproof mascaras in India and abroad. They are drugstore, totally worth the money, and look amazing on the eyes. If I say that I mean that, girl!
