Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara

Summer is quickly approaching (or at least that's what I keep telling myself), and that means waterproof makeup is becoming a necessity again. Clarins' has recently released their Truly Waterproof Mascara* ($26 USD/7mL), and I've been putting it to the test. I don't typically reach for waterproof mascara, but I did want want to bring a waterproof formula with me on my upcoming trip to China!

Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara Packaging

"A double volumizing & lengthening effect, intense colour. 12-hour continuous waterproof hold.
• A 12-hour continuous hold formula protects the lashes against moisture and the harsh effects of seawater (salt), pool water (chlorine) and the sun.
• Thicker, longer lashes; intense colour.
• Its oblong brush perfectly hugs the natural curve of lashes to ensure optimal distribution of mascara over every lash. The hollow, ultra-supple fibers grip the lash from root to tip." - Clarins

Like all of Clarins' products, their Truly Waterproof Mascara is packaged beautifully. The black rectangular tube has a gold lid with the classic C etched into one side. Normally, mascaras will have a tightened opening, but this one doesn't - your brush just slides right out! This means that nothing is taking any excess product off of the brush. However, these bristles are so short, they don't tend to clump together. I have the shade Black, but there's also the shade CuraƧao, a bright blue.

Clarins' Truly Waterproof Mascara is the perfect vacation mascara, in my opinion. This mascara gives a very natural, defined look to my lashes. When I'm on vacation, I go for a natural look, and this mascara definitely fits the bill. This formula lengthens and holds my natural curl all day long. I also really love this on my bottom lashes, and I normally don't wear mascara there! This doesn't give me the volume that I would want for my everyday mascara. Is this mascara truly waterproof? Yes! When water hits your lashes, it almost balls up, and just runs off. It's actually pretty cool to see! The only con is that this mascara can be a bit tricky to remove, even with makeup remover. It's not impossible, but it does take a bit longer than normal.

If you're in need of a waterproof mascara this Summer, I definitely recommend trying Clarins' Truly Waterproof Mascara. This mascara is a part of Clarins' Colours of Brazil Collection. Do you switch over to a waterproof mascara in the Summer months?

  2. If I'm hanging out around the pool/ocean, then yes. Or if it's a really really really really really hot and humid day, then yes. Otherwise I'll wear regular mascara. I'm not good with taking off waterproof mascara, so I try to wear it as little as possible...

  3. I have oily lids so lots of mascaras give me raccoon eyes, even waterproof ones. But the ones that usually work for me are waterproof mascaras.

  4. I must admit that I rarely wear waterproof mascara. They're just so much work to remove.
