What are your recommendations for waterproof mascara for swimming? We are going to mexico and I wanted to get a good waterproof mascara since I wont really be wearing any other makeup. The Sephora reviews didn’t point to an overwhelming winner and the recommendations on here are a few years old (primarily for Maybelline and Loreal). My eyes are a little sensitive and I don’t want anything that is terribly hard to get off. Day to day I usually wear a Maybelline, but I do like the small Estee Lauder samples. I wore a Tarte kind for my wedding. I tend to not like Cover Girl mascara. Thanks for your suggestions!

My recommendation is dont wear mascara when you ara going swimming. Especially if your eyes are sensitive.

I used the waterproof L’Oreal million lashes mascara while I was in Mexico a few weeks ago. I would only put on a very thin coat if I knew I would be getting in the water. The only time it smeared was when I had an issue with my contacts while in the water. I ended up rubbing my eyes a lot, and that caused the mascara to smear, but that wasn’t really the fault of the mascara. It worked great every other time.

I’ve worn Maybelline’s Waterproof version of The Rocket mascara in a pool before… and it stayed on fine through being splashed and such. But if you actually plan on swimming, under water, I wouldn’t wear any.

Get your eyelashes tinted. Costs about the same as mascara and there’s zero chance of raccoon eyes

I have sensitive eyes/hate waterproof mascara, but this is the only one I’ll use! I wore it to an all day intense work out thingy, went swimming, cried a little 😔 and rubbed at my eyes and it didn’t smudge!

I’ve tried so many, and they pretty much can only withstand your face being dunked in the water for like one second, but not actual swimming. I’d recommend getting lashes tinted. or if that’s not dramatic enough, then get lash extensions.
I’ve also tried a bunch of waterproof eyeliners (ones that got rave reviews for swimming), and none of them held up for me either. but a friend swears by Mac Fluid Line. I haven’t tried it yet, but thought I’d pass it along.

thanks everyone for the suggestions! i was thinking it may end up being more trouble than it is worth to wear it, but wanted to check in on reviews.

I went swimming in Mexico – both pool and ocean with my regular mascara on. Zero issues. I don’t wear water proof mascara because, everytime I do, my lashes fall out or break.

I swim in the Ocean and pools several times a week and I am a mascara fanatic. The best one I’ve found, that doesn’t wind up under my eyes, is lights, camera, splashes by tarte. I use the Clinique take the day off makeup remover and it takes it off.

I have some waterproof Dior mascara, so far it’s been rainproof, swimming proof, and hot tub proof!
