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.
I saw some Sephora girls showing how to use this product in their store one day and waited until I saved the points for it. It's not just a good sealing coat for eyelashes, if you know you're way around loose powder you can use it to make waterproof eyeliner and seal glitter coats if you know your way around a sponge glitter applicator.
This product gave me super voluminous lashes. The deep black made my eyes really pop, and I didn't have a problem with flaking. My eyes are usually sensitive to mascara, but I had no issues with this whatsoever. I'll be using this again!
See what I did there with the summary? Heh heh.
Anyway, Lash Genius by Anastasia is a brilliant product! As someone who loves the idea of waterproof mascara but has a hard time finding her favorite brands with the right formula, this allows me to wear whatever kind I choose and still go out in the rain feeling confident! Would definitely by this again!
Full disclosure, I have a blog and was sent this for free to review a while ago. I have to say that I don't understand why no one thought of this before. I have my favorite mascaras one for volume and going out, one for some volume and definition during the day, etc. And this you can put on top of any of your other favorite mascaras to make them waterproof. It is a thin clear gel like a clear mascara that was easily applied. If you try to put on lots of this, it will make your lashes start to stick together. Make sure you go down too the roots too otherwise you are only partially waterproofing, and in the pool or at a wedding, partially waterproof isn't good enough!
This is the only thing I ever returned to birchbox. It clumped my mascara and it burned my lids, so.... Enough said.
There are so many nice mascaras on the market that spread on smooth and lush. I own a couple that aren't waterproof so thought I'd give this a try. As opposed to the mascaras, which have a silky formulation, this is a little gummy. It is a little visible on my lashes over the mascara as a clear coat, and does not coat evenly.
Does it waterproof? Yes. Though I haven't tried it in a cry fest or major rain storm, it gets me through the day without smearing. Don't think I'll be buying this again.
This waterproof topcoat works well and does make non-waterproof mascara waterproof. But if you wear contacts or have sensitive eyes, beware because it may irritate your eyes. My eyes are always irritated after using this product.
What a perfect name for this product... it is definitely a lash genius. I have very straight lashes that usually leaves my mascara under my eyes, but with product the mascara stays on my lashes all day long. Love it!
