Summer is a glorious time! The feeling of shedding layers of clothing and spending less time on my makeup is one of the best feelings in the world. It makes me feel so effortless! BUT the one product I can’t live without is mascara. Even if I’m just running out the door, I always make sure I swipe a few coats on. It makes me feel beautiful and makes me look more awake, so why not. Unfortunately, the heat and sweat makes most of my favourite mascaras smudge under my eyes (not the cute look I’m going for). But rejoice! Just in time for summer, Elle R Cosmétiques has launched a waterproof version of their famous 3D Eyes Mascara. I love the look of the original Looky Eyes 3D mascara, so having a waterproof version to get me through the summer with beautiful lashes is just the thing I needed.
Looky Eyes 3D mascara is the first 2-step mascara that comes in a waterproof version. It’s formulated with the same lengthening properties as the original Looky Eyes, but with the added bonus that it won’t cascade down your face when you’re at the beach or pool. I’m not usually a fan of two-step mascaras, because I usually don’t see the point of both step. But this one is different. The combination of both formulas create such a beautiful false-lash effect that I can’t help but not love it. The first application is a gel base that preps lashes for the second step and locks in the fibres. The second application is coated with fibres, including natural fibres derived from green tea, that add length and volume. Finish the application with another coat of the gel and you’ve got beautiful volume that will stay put all day. The brushes are easy to work with, if you want to be precise and add a little extra length on the outside lashes for example, and the formulas super buildable for those days you want extra drama. At the end of the day, it all washes off with your fave waterproof makeup remover.
I love the look of lash extensions. But the idea of committing to monthly touchups and the price tag associated to it just aren’t my thing. I know some people love them and if you do, that’s great. Do what floats your boat. But for those of you who feel the same way as I do, this mascara is a great alternative. I also love that the formula is buildable without any clumpiness. A definite summer must-have!
Looky Eyes 3D Waterproof Mascara retails for $25.99 and is available in drugstores and online.
