I know it's been done before but Motherhood proof mascara?

It doesn't have to be super lash, just NOT end up making me look like Alice bloody Cooper!

I didn't used to have this problem. But maybe motherhood has made me oily?

Any suggestions much appreciated

I got a Laura Mercier one recently - waterproof, which is very good.

After spending ridiculas money on cosmetics really No17 (or No7) hits the spot with me.

I use their waterproof black, it works and doesnt irritate my eyes either. Under £5. Whats the point in spending silly money on mascara as it all eventually starts to clog up and go lumpy.

I'm very happy with the waterproof, I know what you mean you havent got time to touch up either!

I'd really recommend Clinique lash power. I have the same problem and this stuff only comes off with a warm flannel.

My Gran always buys me lancome, it stays on very well.

Used to use Clinique but Maybelline beats it hands down. The waterproof one in the pink and green tube or the super lash in the yellow with the shiny blue rim. Waterproof. You need vaselline to get it off so def swim, tear, baby proof!

Thanks all! I went for the clinque superlash one and so far it's been ace. Will also get maybelline as back up.

Blinc - wont smudge at all .... washes off easily. YOu can google blinc and the site will come up ... you can get a sample for £2.50 or so, and if you order it after that they take that off the full price. Its around £16 but it is absolutely smudge proof (the sample brush is not as good as the actual one, but will give you an idea of how it works) I love it!

Diorshow waterproof mascara - excellent and I remove it with Clarins non-oily eye make up remover.
