Help me find mascara

I've been trying to find a waterproof mascara which will just colour my lashes black - without any lengthening, curling or false lash effect malarkey - do you know if one exists?!

I think Boots numbers 7 and 17 do a 'normal' waterproof one. Also I am sure Max Factor do. Have you tried Collection 2000 and MUA/Beauty UK Don't bother with the Monsoon/Accessorize one - far too dryingsad Also the Boots natural range do one. NCannot remember if it is totally waterproof or just splash proof but hardly dents the purse in anycase. If you like the Maybelline pink and green bottle - they do a waterproof one.

Why don't you just get them tinted...?

Thanks deathwatchbeetle!

emsyj I have been getting them tinted for the last 15yrs, but the price has gone up a lot lately & I'm finding it hard to get to the beauticians every 4 weeks, so I thought I would give mascara a go.

Blinc is waterproof

Clinique lash power is what you want. It stays on all day - doesn't budge at all. You can then wash it off with water at their end of the day. I love it grin

I just used to tint my own, only about £6 a tube and easy to do.

i agree with emsyj, get 'em tinted girl:-) Works great and not fuss about making a mess in the pool

Blinc is the business. Honestly. After decades, decades I tell you, of futile searching that only ever led to panda-eyed hopelessness, I discovered the miracle that is Blinc's waterproof mascara. Does what it says etc. You just rinse it off with warm water. Tis brill, I tell you.

Many thanks ladies - will give them all a go!

Another vote for Blinc. Really great to use and remove.

Forgot to say you can order a trial size and it comes with a voucher for 10% off your next order.

musu Sat 04-May-13 20:10:25

Sorry 20% off not 10%.

SoftKittyWarmKitty Sat 04-May-13 21:18:33

Where can you order the trial size, Musu? Can't see anywhere to do that on their site.

musu Sat 04-May-13 21:20:42

Click on the products tab.

Yet another vote for blinc.

Tint your own eyelashes at home. Cheap and easy.

SoftKittyWarmKitty Sun 05-May-13 17:06:31

Thanks Musu just ordered a trial one.

Just tint them yourself! Easy peasy - I've been doing it for years. You get the stuff in Boots.

Blinc arrived the other day & I love it already! Will have to try the others later!

Thanks again for all the suggestions!
