Beauty Scoop Top 5 Mascaras Pass the Smudge-Proof Test

Is your mascara letting you down? Sadly, we’ve all experienced this. After a night out on the town, we completely forget to remove our make-up only to wake up to raccoon eyes in the morning. Or we decide to stay in to watch The Notebook on TV, and our mascara isn’t as waterproof as it claimed to be. Well, we’re here to give you our takes on the best smudge-proof mascaras out there.

Christian Dior DiorShow ($25) – This is Dior’s original must-have mascara which delivers an ultra-glam runway look. Make-up artists swear by DiorShow since it creates the longest, thickest, curviest lashes ever.

Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara ($24) – This brand has an usual bulbous brush, but it clearly enhances volume and is both sweat and water resistant. So whether you wear it while at the gym or when you’re going for a swim, you’re in the clear.

Urban Decay Super Curling Mascara ($20) – This mascara has got two incentives in one. Not only is it smear free, it eliminates your need for an eyelash curler. It provides for the perfect curl, so go ahead and bat those lashes at your boyfriend when he’s giving you a hard time. He’s sure to forget everything else.

Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara ($19) – This mascara is reported to deliver a 406% increase in lash volume and long term reparative, rebuilding, and strengthening benefits. Amazonian clay is an ingredient that hydrates to prevent brittle lashes and fall out, making your overall look flake free.

Maybelline NY Volum Express The Colossal Mascara ($10) – This mascara gives you lush, gorgeous, smudge-proof lashes at a fraction of the cost of the more expensive makes. Experts recommend you throw away your mascaras every 3 months, so when you’re spending this little, it’s a no-brainer.
