Marcelle Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat

I don't wear waterproof mascara everyday, but it definitely does have its' place in my makeup bag. When I was planning out my wedding day makeup, I realized that I didn't have any waterproof mascara in my collection, but I did have a tube of Marcelle's Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat*, which you can use over any mascara! I knew that I would inevitably be shedding at least a few happy tears on my big day (I was right), so this product was a must!

Marcelle Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat

The packaging of Marcelle's Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat is quite simple - a black and blue plastic tube with a fat brush. I like to apply this topcoat a few seconds after I apply my mascara, while my lashes are still a bit wet. You can also apply this over dry mascara, but I find that it doesn't go on as easily that way. I loved that this topcoat didn't leave my lashes feeling crunchy or super stiff.  Like I said, I wore this product on my wedding day, and I'm happy to say that it kept me from looking like a raccoon during the many moments that I teared up (what can I say, it was an emotional day, in the best way possible!). While this topcoat definitely worked to waterproof against a few tears, it didn't stand the test against the Mediterranean Sea. I wore this topcoat on my honeymoon while swimming in the salty waters. After a few hours in the water, my makeup was completely gone. While I was happy that the mascara wasn't dripping down my face, I was a bit disappointed that it would be on my lashes.

So, this waterproof topcoat definitely works for everyday use, to keep your mascara on through a few tears, or through a gym sesh, but it didn't stand up to a day at the beach. Now that I'm home I sadly won't be at the beach anymore, so this waterproofing topcoat will work perfectly for my daily demands!
