Let's face it -- mascara running down our cheeks is not what we sign up for when we pop open a new tube. Night of the living dead we beauty chicks are not! So, like most ladies out there, this beauty chick is constantly in search of the latest, greatest waterproof mascara. If it stays in place, great. If it makes my lashes look unbelievably lush and full, even better. First up in my latest test? Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara in Deep Brown.
The tube itself intrigued me -- how could enough power be contained within its skinnier-than-skinny square silhouette? Thankfully I got my answer with only a few swipes per eye -- and only a single coat! This baby lengthened my lashes to no end, making them look ... dare I say it ... fabulous. They immediately looked thicker, and the shade seemed to complement the natural tone and texture of my lashes quite well.
But the real test? Wearing it in a sudden rainstorm, in which I was caught with no umbrella on my way to meet the girls for drinks! And, yes, after a quick trip to the ladies' room, I was pleased to discover that it stayed put, continuing to enhance my lashes and make me want to bat my eyes all night long.
The final test came when I was too tired and lazy to remove my makeup before bed. (Yes, I know this is a major faux pas!) Imagine my delighted shock and surprise when it was still in place the next morning! Truly unbelievable.
