rainy days + waterproof mascaras

Hi Beauty Nerds,

Hope you all had a nice weekend!

I picked up Peter from the airport yesterday (he’s back from Hawaii-hooray!) and he was greeted with the shockingly unpleasant cold weather here in Toronto – quite a contrast from the sunny beaches of Hawaii. I can’t believe we are almost through April and we have only seen a couple warm days so far! Yesterday, we even had a bit of snow, can you believe? I don’t know what Mother Nature is doing – but I’m yearning for some sunshine!




In the mean time though, rain or shine, we can’t let that stop us from looking our best. Since I have been preparing for my Burberry case, I couldn’t help but also daydream about cute umbrella and rain boot ensembles ;). Of course to complete the ‘rainy day’ look, we must not forget to ensure our luscious lashes also stay weather-proof. Normally, I’m not a huge fan of waterproof mascaras because I find them extremely difficult to remove, but the rain leaves me no choice, so here are my three top picks with best lash-boosting capabilities (my lashes are sparse, so I need all the help I can get!):



{1} L’Oréal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara – this mascara has been my favourite since high school. When I’m not in the mood to try something new or I’m just strapped for cash, this is always my saving grace. I know I am always guaranteed maximum volume with this mascara.
{2} Benefit BADgal Waterproof Mascara – A pretty decent waterproof mascara. Although I still prefer the non-waterproof BADgal Lash because of its bigger brush and better thickening abilities, this mascara still proved to be good at lengthening and retaining the curl – which, let me tell you, it’s not an easy task for my stick-straight, downward-pointing Asian lashes!
{3} DiorShow Waterproof Mascara – Such a gorgeous formula. From root to tip, my lashes look full without being clumpy. Best yet? It creates the illusion of wearing falsies – and I love dramatic lashes! This would definitely be my top pick for a prestige mascara.

What are your favs? Would love to hear suggestions so that I can test them out as well!

Cheers,

    I rarely use waterproof mascaras. Haha! But that’s about to change because I’m living in a new, much warmer climate and I’m sure that I’ll be needing one. I’m glad that the Voluminous formula is just as good waterproof because it is one of my favorites. XO

    Yeah I love Voluminous – make sure you find a good eye makeup remover too! I still find waterproof mascaras so stubborn to remove… hope you are enjoying your new place ;)
