5 Waterproof Mascaras For The Budget Beauty Junkie

By  | 

A solid waterproof mascara is such an underrated beauty product. We just don’t talk enough about it and how necessary it is, especially for us Indian women who live in one of the most humid places. Humidity means tons of sweat and dampness, a feeling that lingers in the air through the year.

If you’re someone who has to put on a glam face regardless of the climate, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve tried a couple of these waterproof mascaras myself and the rest are recommendations by friends who swear by them to keep mascara from running down your face like so:

Convinced? Keep scrolling to read about my top 5 picks right now:


False lash butterfly mascara_hauterfly

1. L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Papillon Waterproof Mascara (Rs 680)

This is the perfect mascara if you’re looking for something that will last all day. While it is supposed to be a volumising mascara, you may not necessarily get that effect but it will make your lashes look nice and long. However, the highlight of this product (and the reason why it has landed on this list) is that it does not smudge or budge AT ALL and matches up to its claims of being waterproof.

2. Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara (Rs 1,023)

This Rimmel mascara is an all rounder. It holds the curl throughout the day and also separates the lashes really well. It does not smudge or flake and gives you no reason to complain. You get all the benefits of a high-end mascara in this drugstore buy. Trust.


Maybelline The Colossal Volum Express Mascara_Hauterfly

3. Maybelline The Colossal Volum Express Mascara (Rs 338)

One of the most popular products I’ve ever come across, Maybelline’s Colossal Volum Express does exactly what it claims to do, i.e. add volume and repel water. A single coat makes your eyes look wide open and it does not clump at all. It’s a perfect pick for special occasions like weddings where you need to use something that is long lasting and adds oomph. All this in that price is an extremely good deal.

4. CoverGirl LashBlast Waterproof Mascara (Rs 1,184)

CoverGirl’s mascara is again one that can be worn throughout the day without having issues like smudging, flaking or drying. This one also holds the curls making lashes look fresh and perfect. It is definitely one of the few that fulfills its promise of being waterproof at an affordable price.


Faces Ultime Pro Gel Waterproof Mascara_Hauterfly

5. Faces Ultime Pro Gel Waterproof Mascara (Rs 679)

This Faces mascara has a texture that glides on to your lashes easily and adds length without drying them out. It does not smudge, stays on forever, and also comes off easily. The wand makes it easy to apply on the corners, which is usually a task.
