Birchbox Breakdown

Prepare to have your mind blown: this waterproof topcoat makes any mascara water resistant. No more having your regular mascara and a separate only-for-weddings-and-watching-The-Notebook mascara. The clear lightweight gel eradicates flakes, drying, and clumping, while the high-tech formula adds a glossy finish to lashes. If you’re a fan of falsies, you can use this formula to help them blend with your natural assets.

How it Works

While emollient triglycerides draw loose lashes together, hydrophobic elements create a waterproof film, protecting lashes from the outside world. The formula is made with high melting point wax to ensure your polished appearance will last all day (even in 90 degree heat).

How to Use

Add polish to lashes by swiping this gel on over freshly mascara-ed lashes or falsies. One or two coats will do.

Isododecane, Polyethylene, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Synthetic Wax, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butylhydroxyhydrocinnamate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol

genius!!

this is so awesome, I have tried so many waterproof mascaras but nothing comes close to my staple. this is such a great option for those who don't want to but their fav brand in waterproof just for the summer. my normal mascara stayed on after multiple swims. I will definitely purchase the full product

Works Almost too Well

Definitely kept my mascara from running in the water. Wore it over my favorite mascara and went stand up paddle boarding. Fell in the water a few times from boat wake and not once did my mascara run. Looked just as good as when I put it on. And it was easy to put on over my mascara. I'd almost say it works too well. A day and two face washes later and I could still feel it on my lashes. At least my mascara wasn't runny for a couple of days.

No Melt Down

I have major issues with sweating in the heat. My mascara gets black under my eyes. BUT this waterproof coating stops that from happening. Couldn't be without it. I use a light coating and have no problems.

interesting but not for me

I generally use waterproof mascara so this seemed a little redundant for me. . .so I gave it to my daughter who likes to use washable mascara followed by a layer of waterproof. It was perfect for her.

Yay!

Got this as part of the Modern Mermaid box and so glad I did! I used it during an outdoor event where it poured!!! I'm not a huge fan of waterproof mascara and I had forgotten it anyways, but had this tucked away in my bag! Put it on over my regular mascara (couldn't tell if it was on there) and yes!!! My mascara did not run as it started to rain!! Definitely happy I got to try this and will probably buy again!

Cool!

I'm not one for wearing a lot of makeup, so getting water-proof stuff really isn't one for me, but I like the fact that this waterproof topcoat means that any mascara that I want to use - any color or kind - becomes water proof. As with anything waterproof, it makes getting the makeup off a bit of a trick, but that I can deal with!

Works like a charm!
Purchased

I was so excited to find out this product exists! Living in NYC, I'm outside so often that my favorite mascara always tends to run, whether from rain, heat, or wind. I put one coat of this product on top of my mascara and it hasn't budged! Even through sitting on a windy rooftop and under an umbrella during an outdoor presentation of Hamlet in a rain storm. I adore this product, completely worth every penny.

Works!

This top coat really works! Just need to make sure to coat carefully so that all of your mascara is covered.
