Hi beautiful readers!
I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, and I think now is the perfect time to try my experiment since I am prepping for a big dance concert. I am going to have a mascara battle royale – or a mascara battle – to see which drug store waterproof mascara is the best mascara to wear to rehearsal and the gym!
I am always looking for a good mascara to wear when I workout because I don’t wear a lot of makeup when I am training, and mascara is usually the only beauty product I apply before a good sweat. A few weeks ago on my Facebook page I asked my followers what mascara they believed was the best mascara to workout in! I only received a few comments – one of which mentioned the Maybelline Lash Stiletto Waterproof formula. I myself am partial to the L’Oreal Voluminous Original Waterproof Mascara.
Nonetheless, I need you all to comment your favorite drugstore mascara you like to wear to the gym or to rehearsal – anywhere you sweat a lot – so I can choose which mascaras are going to battle! There will be a few criteria I will base my judgements on!
- Application/Formula – How does the mascara apply? How mant coats do I need to get my desired length/volume/etc.? How does it smell? Is the formula wet, dry, clumpy, smooth, etc.?
- Wearability – How does the mascara hold up through my workout? Does it smear or smudge? Flakes? Does it drip into my eyes and burn them while I sweat?
- Removal – How easily does the formula remove with vaseline? Is it gentle on my lashes when removing? Is there residue left behind on my lashes at the base or tip?
Using these three criteria as my grading rubric, I will choose between 3-5 different mascaras to test out! This not only will give me the chance to wear them during different dance and fitness classes, but it will also encourage me to get my ass in the gym more often to test the different formulas!
Please feel free to leave comments below! I really want to know your favorites!
Thank you for all of your help in advance!
