What's Your Favorite Waterproof Mascara? Here's Mine!
This morning my cell phone rang. My cell phone never rings. Very few people have the number and those that do know I can't answer it when I'm in the hospital. It turned out to be my sister (who knows I'm not at the hospital today). She was calling with a beauty emergency.
What was the emergency? Well, she's 3 days before her wedding and she was in the middle of Sephora. And dumbfounded by all of the mascara. What to buy? She called me since I'm doing her makeup that day. (I'm very nervous about this by the way. I've never done any one else's makeup. I'm a doctor, not a makeup artist. I'm bringing absurd amounts of product with me.) I wanted her to have waterproof mascara. I couldn't think of a good one at Sephora (my favorite Tarte ones are no longer sold at my Sephora, and they aren't waterproof anyways). I told her she needed to go to CVS.
Leave Sephora and go to CVS??
She doesn't have time to go, so I'll be buying it for her here in California. I'll be getting her my favorite waterproof mascara, Max Factor's Volume Couture Mascara. Many waterproof formulas are not quite waterproof, are not easy to apply or are impossible to remove. Not so this one! It's every bit as good as the regular one.
I will admit that since she wanted some expensive mascara I sent her to the closest Chanel counter for the Exceptionnel, which I've been trying out recently and love. But I told her that for the wedding itself we were going to use the Max Factor waterproof mascara and it would be fantastic.
So, spill the beans! I want to know what everyone's favorite waterproof mascara is right now!
