From the sexy hot pink tube to the insane way this mascara lengthens and adds volume, we recommend stocking up for the summer. The fact that this mascara is also paraben and cruelty-free is just another added bonus.

I am thrilled that my favorite night out mascara comes in waterproof form. This is the tube I pull out when I want that sexy lash extension look.  This is your must-have for those St. Bart’s-themed beach bashes and romantic date nights.

My friend Jill Kossoff is a kick-butt NY-based fitness trainer with sensitive eyes and she swears by this mascara. She uses it all year round and loves the way it feels on her lashes and the fact that it stays put all day without any irritation.

The waterproof version of this cult favorite is just as good as the original. The best go-to for day or night, you can’t go wrong with the look or the price. 


I’m a huge fan of this brand for the quality of their products. I decided to try their waterproof mascara and it was love at first wear.  My lashes were instantly lengthened without clumping and it withstood my niece’s wedding despite my tears.
