Makeup Wars: Favorite Waterproof Makeup

Makeup Wars Favorite Waterproof Makeup

In this edition of “Makeup Wars” we are talking about our favorite waterproof products. This is perfect timing what with the temps starting to heat up. I think of these more as meltproof/sweatproof products than pure waterproof products, since I am not that much of a pool going gal, as my pale skin can attest. So, I decided to give you guys my quick and dirty look for the summer, and it will even work at the pool, if you are in to that kind of thing.

Now, I don’t include any face products, because, well, none of those are waterproof & they are just going to sweat off of me no matter what I do, so I barely even try during the warm months. 110deg Oklahoma Summer will do that to a gal.

I always tend to keep my eyes fixed, and these items keep them ready, no matter the moistness:

Mally Beauty Waterproof Volumizing Mascara: If you guys remember, this was one of my “Desert Island” staples, so, if it is good enough for the island, it’s good enough for hanging out by the pool. (*If you are looking for a drugstore WP mascara, you might also remember that I’ve hung out at the pool in some Covergirl LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara, too.)

Maybelline Color Tattoo Gel Shadow: I know I have told you about these over and over and over again, but they really are a great waterproof shadow option, especially for a drugstore brand – the variety of colors are amazing, but I generally keep a neutralish color around so I can play with brighter eyeliner.

Pixi Beauty Endless Silky Eye Pen: These eyeliners are ridiculously great for my eyes. They glide on almost as easy as liquid liner, but with a pencil width and wear. And, their waterproof claim is no joke. I have got an eye that continues to water like a weeping statue, whether from allergies or just to annoy the hell out of me (*which it does). These pencils have become my go-to liner that stands up to my constant wiping, without staining my eyelid, nor fading away after first wipe and comes in a bunch of different, vibrant colors.

As for my lips, we know that we can’t keep gloss or lipstick on for very long, and we need to reapply sunscreen lip products, esp hanging out by the pool/lake/ocean. The one thing I have found that keeps color on my lips and holds up to reapplication of lip wax is a lip stain:

Covergirl Outlast Lipstain: This drugstore goodie is water-based so you won’t dry out your lips and still keep color on your lips while playing in the water. (*Fun fact: I use this to draw on my kids’ face for Spirit Days at school – it wears off overnight and lasts thru sweaty pep rallies!)

So, these are the things that pretty much get me thru an Oklahoma summer. What are some of your favorite waterproof/meltproof/sweatproof products?

And, after you tell me that, go check out what these other lovelies have picked as their waterproof faves:

      Only the Pink tube is! I didn’t know there was a difference when I first tried the pink tube – it feels as good as regular mascara!

  2. Drugstore wise, Maybelline Color Tattoos are definitely the best. And I am a new found fan of the Pixi’s for sure!
