Normally I never wear waterproof mascara’s, I prefer the normal ones as I hate removing them and I think the usual ones are more easily removed. But for the summer (or for the rainy/snowy winter) I think a waterproof mascara is a must-have. But this time I decided to go for a drugstore one from the brand Catrice: Catrice Allround Mascara.
It’s really inexpensive, I might be mistaken but I think the price was around 3 euro. A great deal! Besides I like a lot of Catrice products that I tried. The brush is quite ordinary: it’s made of normal bristles and it has a regular size. It applies the exact quantity needed, not too much or too many. I also liked the consistency of this mascara: it’s good, although in the beginning it was more on the liquid side.
My opinion on Catrice Allround Mascara:
As I said, this mascara is waterproof so I expected it to last really a long time. I also prefer lengthening mascaras that separate the eyelashes, I prefer to avoid the messy volumizing ones. That being said, this mascara promises to do everything: make lashes longer and fuller. Well lucky for me, it doesn’t give that much volume. It doesn’t do a great job at lengthening either though. I do think the lashes are a bit longer, nicely separated, not clumpy. But I would like this effect to be stronger. There’s nothing “wow” there. But this is not the worst thing yet. The worst thing is that this mascara doesn’t stay where it should! I must again say that I used it in a hot subtropical climate but still, it goes on my eyelids up to the eyebrows, I can find it under the eyes, too in the end of the day. So I always have to watch out and do touch-ups during the day. Too bad!
Overall note: C.
Where can you buy it:
I don’t think that Catrice is available online, I bought mine at “Kruidvat” (drugstore) in Holland.
