One of the biggest gripes I hear about cosmetics that seems to crop up time and time again: finding a mascara you absolutely love, but hating the waterproof version. For some reason only known to mascara manufacturers, waterproof mascaras seem not to perform as well as their non-waterproof counterparts. They make your lashes feel brittle and are an absolute pain to remove.
But what if you are subjected to bouts of inclement weather (looking at you, lovely UK weather) or maybe a good crying sesh with a bottle of wine and The Notebook?
I was recently given the opportunity to review Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius and this product is the answer to all your waterproofing woes. Lash Genius will waterproof any mascara as soon as its applied. So you can keep on using your favorite holy grail mascara even if you are, say, attending a wedding or going out in a torrential downpour. It also can be used on false lashes to help hold them on and blend them with your real lashes.
I really like using this product on fake lashes as I have just started using them and am quite rubbish with application. Lash Genius really helps make them look and feel a bit more natural and like they won’t just ping off any moment.

Lash Genius can be purchased for $21 and is available at Sephora.
