If you remember I reviewed a couple Mary Kay products a little while back. While these didn’t knock my socks off, there was one item I tried that I was super impressed with which was called the Ultimate Mascara. I immediately asked Gabrielle to put me down for an order, however when I asked her for the waterproof version, they unfortunately didn’t have one. So instead she put me down for an order of the Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara — I’m glad she did, because this mascara is DA BOMB!
According to the Mary Kay website the Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara is described as follows:
Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara
Defines, defends and delivers voluminous lashes with a waterproof formula. Mary Kay® Lash Love® Waterproof Mascara features a flexible, sculpted brush that separates and coats even fine, hard-to-reach lashes. Lashes appear fuller, lifted and multiplied, while looking naturally flawless, soft and healthy. No stiff spots or clumps in sight. Plus it’s tear and humidity-proof!
When I first opened the tube, I was already anticipating that I would like this mascara — it has a skinny, plastic brush that will be great for creating lots of length and separation (my main “look-fors” in a mascara).
I applied this to my top lashes and it really lengthened my lashes with minimal clumpage even after 2-3 coats. The deisgn of this brush really allows me to get right to the base of my lashes which makes for great separation and lift. I have a few stubborn lashes on the outer corners of each of my eyes — you know, the ones that curl in any direction that it wants to, other than up! Anyway, this mascara brush really got into the root of those lashes and managed to get those pesky stubborns to behave normally!
I applied this to my bottom lashes and although I experienced a bit of smudging upon application (probably just my unsteady hand), I found the size, shape and stiffness of the brush to give a good application of mascara; a couple coats lengthened and separated my bottom lashes great.
And the true test for a mascara to get into my good books? The waterproofness! I have to say that this lived up nicely to that claim! You see, I walk to work every day and now that it’s winter, that North wind blowing in my face with -30 below freezing windchills is the norm for me. With that, comes frozen eyelashes and with THAT, comes looking into a mirror and finding whether or not my mascara has melted down my face along with the icicles formed on my eyelashes!
I love living in Canada.
The past couple weeks, us lucky Canucks in some parts have been living in the -40s below, I can say I’ve had a few morning walks where if I had worn non-waterproof mascara, I’d look like a very sad panda coming into work. This Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof mascara is truly waterproof! Not a smudge or budge to report.
Another plus: by the end of my day — like 12 hours later, this mascara DID NOT lose its ability to hold my lashes up and curly.
I purchased this for $21 Cdn.
I give the Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof mascara: a STANDING OVATION
