Best Brands of Waterproof Mascara

When you are looking for the best in a waterproof mascara you want a product that will not run, smudge, clump or smear. It can be hard to decide what brand is really the best with the market crammed full of so many name brands that promise that theirs is the perfect one to end all of your problems. So, how do you decide? The following is a list of the best brands we have narrowed things down to based on price, and meeting all of the criteria we were looking for.

Avon Wash Off Waterproof Mascara

Avon has been putting out top of the line products and has been a leader in the industry for the last 125 years. This is the perfect choice for those who would like a product that is streak free, long lasting, and durable through even a crying bout. It is still easy enough to clean and wipes right off with just soap and water. Average cost is around $5.

Cover Girl Professional Waterproof Mascara

Cover Girl is another known and trusted name in the cosmetics industry. A little more expensive than the Avon brand but has been made with a superior formula that helps to magnify and define your eyes without looking too overdone. This mascara also helps keep your natural lashes curled when using after crimping with an eyelash curler for those who have short lashes and would like a longer look. This mascara can be worn all day without fear of smudging or running down your face. This does not bother eyes that are used to wearing contact lenses. And it does not clump at all. The only downfall to this mascara is that because it is such an efficient waterproof product, you need to have an oil based remover to take it off at night. Average cost is $14.

Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara

Another affordable favorite that can be purchased for under $10 a tube is the Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara. This can be purchased in both brown and black with various shades for each such as dark or soft. The formula used in this product not only allows you to lengthen your lashes but also thickens them as well. This is smudge proof, glides on smooth, and does not clump or glob when applying. It is safe for those wearing contact lenses and is also hypoallergenic. You can find one with a curved brush or a straight cut depending on which you prefer to work with. Does need to be removed with a moisturizing eye makeup remover product.
