I have Asian eyes. Asian eyes that smear and smudge whatever makeup I wear. So I have been on the hunt for a truly smudge free, smear free mascara for years. I can tell you that every single one of mascaras, even the waterproof ones, smear within a couple hours and I always need to wipe my raccoon eyes.
In my latest experiment, I put high-end to drug store waterproof mascaras to test. I wore the mascaras at 6 A.M. and didn’t touch my eyes until 4 P.M. until I got home from work.
I teach 4th grade and the teachers at my school knew about my mascara experiment as well. So I have witnesses for those of you skeptics out there! You know, I am truly a skeptic too. That’s why I do these experiments and post my findings on my blog whether good or bad.
I’ll start with the two waterproof mascaras by Chanel. I had Chanel mascara more than 5 years ago, and of course, it had smeared on me, but since it had been a few years, I thought I should give it a second chance. I even double, triple checked with the lady at the counter to make sure that they won’t smear or smudge. She pointed to her own eyes and said that she was wearing non-waterproof and it doesn’t smear on her. Just wait until I go to return my two $35 Chanel mascaras and show her my picture!!
L’Oreal “Hydrofuge Voluminous” Waterproof Mascara
Maybelline “Pumped Up Colossal” Waterproof Mascara
Cover Girl “Professional Super Thick Lash” Waterproof Mascara
As you can see, all of the mascaras above have smeared. The least amount of smearing was with the pink Covergirl Mascara. But that one was super difficult to take off. I wiped it off using makeup remover, then once again with the makeup removing wipe. Then I would wash my face, and there would still be traces of mascara left so I would have to wipe it again with makeup removing sheet. Then in the morning, there was still traces of mascara left.
The only mascara that did not smear or smudge at all was…
TOO FACED LASH INJECTION
Yep. I’ve tried many other mascaras not mentioned here…such as all three Dior mascaras, all of the mascaras from Benefit, It Cosmetics, YSL… and on and on… Nothing has done what TOO FACED Lash Injection did. Click the picture below to get one for yourself!!
