Urgent mascara help

(18 Posts)

I have a disease called sjogrens so my eyes can be either hideously dry or prone to flooding. Normal mascara causes major panda eyes, I’ve tried Boots no 7 waterproof/smudge proof one but it’s like glue on the lashes.
Anyone got any recommendations for one that’s truly panda eye proof that’s not like stringy glue on lashes?

Eyeko do a good waterproof one.

Ester Lauder double wear. Doesn’t budge. Looks fantastic.

Benefit they're real. It's the best mascara I've tried.

Bobbi Brown No Smudge, it’s amazing! First one I have tried that doesn’t make your lashes crunchy and doesn’t smudge at all. It’s an everyday one, not very dramatic.

Yy Estée Lauder double wear. Blue tube with a gold lid. Nothing else comes close.

Definitely Estée Lauder Double Wear - it was a total game-changer for me.

bobbi brown no smudge, been using it for years.

I opened this thread to recommend Este Lauder double wear also grin

Brilliant, many thanks. Lots of suggestions to try so I don’t look like an idiot or utterly vain checking in the mirror every few minutes whilst I’m out grin

Boots Stay Perfect Mascara. It’s tubing mascara (puts tubes of colour round individual lashes, apparently, although surely that’s what any mascara does?)
It definitely stays put. You can rub your eyes. It comes in black and brown and comes off with warm water. Although it does look as though your lashes have come off too, because the ‘tubes’ look like lashes on your muslin/ flannel/ cotton wool.

Max factor aqua lash is great, even hold up to a day at the splash park and not to pricey

SluttyButty Wed 07-Feb-18 21:03:14

Whitehair that’s the one I used grin

SluttyButty Wed 07-Feb-18 21:05:15

JustBasic currently using that one and have lovely black stripes under my eyes shock

Lancôme waterproof - survives kayaking and swimming!

Bodear Wed 07-Feb-18 21:12:01

Try mac. They have a few different waterproof options and they don’t budge.

So far Lancôme Hypnose Drama has been super & not flaked or run on me (contact lense wearer). The no.7 one you are using is a tubing mascara so needs to be taken off using quite warm water.
