Let me tell you about how wonderful this mascara is.
Now, when I look for a mascara, the absolute first 100% non-negotiable requirement is waterproof. I know some people say you shouldn’t always wear waterproof and other won’t use it at all. That’s just not an option for me. Sometimes, I have really bad allergy eyes and I get a little watery. Sometimes that “arms of the angel” commercial comes on and I have a lot of rescue dog feelings. Sometimes it’s colder than cold in Chicago and your eyes start to water to protect from the cold then freeze to your face right at your lashline.
Waterproof is the only way to go for me. And this is so it automatically gets bumped a few points. This is only one of two waterproof mascaras from e.l.f. so this was pretty much narrowed down to 2.
Price is semi-important. I don’t want to spend an exorbitant about of money on good make-up but I want it to, you know, be good enough to last all day and not come home with mascara flakes all over my eyes. That’s no fun.
This stuff is awesome quality AND really inexpensive. Seriously, it cost $3. And as part of a slightly bigger shipment, shipping was free. So just $3. So much win.
It goes on really nicely. I usually do two coats of mascara. Like, apply coat #1, go do something for a few minutes (usually make coffee), come back and apply coat #2. This stuff only needs one coat. It lifts and separates really nicely and you can actually see my lashes! I’m a secret blonde so my lashes like to play a disappearing act if I don’t put mascara on.
I used to be an eyeliner and mascara combo only kind of person but this stuff has converted me. I’m okay using just mascara (with a sweep of shadow) if it’s this stuff.
The long & short of it:
I highly recommend the e.l.f. Studio Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara for its waterproofness, its cost, and its application!
