Number one is DiorShow Black Out Waterproof Mascara. This is my favorite. It goes on thick, but once it’s on, it stays put. After applying, give it about 30 seconds to set, try not to blink. Once it’s set, I haven’t seen it smudge on me until maybe sixteen hours later. It’s a little pricy, but well worth it. Hint: find it cheaper on eBay.
Number two, Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion Water Resistant Mascara is a little cheaper, less than ten bucks actually. It’s quite a bargain. I really like this mascara. In my experience; it doesn’t smudge for at least 8 hours. If you sleep in it (not recommended) you may wake up with those pesky raccoon eyes, but otherwise, it will stay put.
Number three is Maybelline Magnum Volum Express Waterproof Mascara. This is also cheap drugstore mascara, though it doesn’t deliver drugstore quality results. I find this product to actually do what it claims to. This mascara will actually give your lashes volume and length. Hint: As you are applying, wiggle the brush from side to side as you brush from the base to the tips for even coverage.
