I’ve tried countless waterproof mascaras and eyeliners, but I never seem to find one that actually is fully waterproof. It somehow smudges in the end or just gets ruined. I discussed this with one of my best friends and she said that there was one that she always buys and brings on her travels. Since my best friend and I were going to Thailand, she brought me to Sasa (a popular store in Hong Kong) that sold this holy grail waterproof mascara and eyeliner.
Heroine Make is the name of the brand and it originates from Japan. The eyeliner costed me around 82 HKD (~$13 CAD). The image of the girl is iconic to this brand and although I can’t read Japanese, it states that this eyeliner is waterproof and doesn’t come off whatsoever.
The eyeliner seemed like any other liquid eyeliner with a fine tip applicator and the packaging was very cute at first glance.
The application of the eyeliner was smooth and the fine tip made it easy to produce a winged eyeliner look. The pigment of the eyeliner was also very dark (I close black) and it didn’t fade whatsoever after a full day. I tried this eyeliner whilst in Thailand (including my beach days) and the eyeliner didn’t budge whatsoever. There was no eyeliner residue after going into the water, nor were there any smudge marks underneath my eyes. I could not believe how amazing this eyeliner was and it has become my holy grail waterproof eyeliner!
Heroine Make also had a waterproof mascara in the same line that I could not pass upon.
The mascara tube wasn’t anything fancy, nor was the brush, but I bought it at the same price of the eyeliner (~$13 CAD).
This mascara, just like the eyeliner, has also become my holy grail mascara for water days/rainy days. I tried it along with the eyeliner on my beach days in Thailand and I was pleasantly surprised to find that none of it smudged after going into the water multiple times. Although your eyelashes don’t look as full and voluminous like with other mascaras, this one is absolutely amazing hands-down the mascara you should use if you want it to stay on all day. The formulation of the mascara is light and it applies on easily.
Waterproof eyeliner and mascara. You’re probably wondering how I can remove these two holy grail items. My solution is the Heroine Make Eyeliner/Mascara remover. Since Heroine Make knows the formulation of the two products, they created its counterpart eyeliner/mascara remover.
This teal/mint coloured tube looks exactly like a mascara but its wand applicator is totally different. This wand is used to apply product onto your eyelashes to remove mascara. You brush the wand a couple of times over your eyelashes and leave it on for 30 seconds to 1 minute and use a makeup wipe or a cotton pad to wipe it off. It works amazingly well when removing waterproof mascara and it only requires one application to do the trick.
I was speechless after trying all three products and would highly recommend every single one of these products if you were looking for waterproof items. From my experience of being in Thailand for a week this past summer, this eyeliner and mascara would stay on without smudging. I spent nearly every day jumping into the waters and it has proved its waterproof abilities.
If you have any questions, please leave them below. Also if you’ve also tried these products, tell me how your experiences went!
