Summer is finally at our doorsteps and it will soon be time for pool and beach parties. To enjoy barbecue and wedding season without worrying about your mascara running or smudging, it's time to switch to a proper waterproof mascara.
As a swimmer, I take waterproof mascara quite seriously and over the years, I have gone through my fair share of falsely labeled mascaras. Some have claimed to be waterproof but ended up giving me the infamous raccoon eyes, while others were such a pain to remove.
So when the lovely people at Clarins sent me their new Truly Waterproof Mascara, I was eager to give this chic newcomer a try.
After my usual swimming routine, a sweaty workout and a day filled with endless appointments, I was pretty amazed by the long wearing formula of this mascara. Since I have naturally thin lashes, I tend to pick mascaras that have a volumising and lengthening effect and this one really lengthen lashes without ever clumping. With its little plastics bristles, the brush does an excellent job at giving lashes beautiful definition.
While waterproof mascaras are slightly thicker than regular ones, this one doesn't dry out and is a joy to remove, as long as you use an oil-based remover. I have received the black shade and I am now considering getting the shade curaçao, a bright summery blue part of their Colours of Brazil collection.
It's definitively something to bring on your sunny escapade!
