Beauty Find - Laura Mercier Waterproof Mascara

If you're anything like me, it doesn't matter if I'm going to be traveling to/working in/visiting a hot/humid place, (or just working out) - I will not give up my mascara.

And if that sounds like you, then Laura Mercier Waterproof Mascara is the perfect product.

This is a wonderful formula that is truly waterproof - while still creating soft, gentle natural looking healthy lashes. It has a thin/medium weight liquid texture and larger, cone-shaped brush.  The tip of the brush did a great job of getting in my inner/outer corners, as well as my bottom lashes.  The effect of this mascara formula +brush gave me perfectly separated lashes and a deep black finish which I loved.

I found 2-3 coats gave me a great amount of additional length and thickness perfect for day or night. Tip:I waited about 30 sec. before moving on to my eyeliner, as this formula dried a bit slower than some. But once it was set that was it - it did not budge, move, smudge, flake or run - no matter how hot or humid it was.  This even stood the ultimate test - staying on in the pool and at the beach.

While some waterproof mascaras are terribly hard to remove, I found that a oil-based/creamy cleanser did a fantastic job of removing the mascara at the end of the day.  Occasionally, I would go over my lashes quickly with a oil-based eye makeup remover just to finish the job.

This is such a great everyday mascara you'll find yourself reaching for it even when it's not summer! - RLB
