What makes a mascara better than waterproof? One that performs like a waterproof mascara (it won t run, smudge, or flake). A truly water resistant mascara that is gentle enough to be worn every day yet stays put and can be worn even if swimming or crying! The tubing formulation stays put during the day yet is easily removed with warm water and gentle pressure - no need for heavy, greasy eye makeup removers. This is the perfect vacation mascara - you don’t need to pack eye makeup remover with you!
