Going on a hot holiday next week, we'll be in the pool a lot and a water park. I look crap without makeup. Can anyone recommend a really waterproof mascara that won't budge without some kind of oily eye make up remover.
I currently use no7 waterproof and even in the gym I look like a panda.

I have found a lot of 'waterproof" mascaras are nothing of the kind. I love Lancome but found M & S stays put the best. I dont like the panda look either. Take a make up wipe poolside just in case!

I buy Maybelline Stiletto lash mascara in waterproof from eBay. You could cry a river through it and still have pristine, mascara'd lashes.

You need a tubing mascara as waterproof ones are hit and miss. No 7 have one in a gold tube which is amazing. It'll only come off with warm water.

I've got Clinique Lashpower mascara. It's a tubing one as mentioned above and doesn't come off in water. It's a bit pricey but I love it! ( you can prob get it cheaper in duty free at the airport)

Well Benefit's They're Real has a rep for being so difficult to remove without an oil based eye make up remover so I think that would work
