Waterproof mascara isn't just for the pool, lake, or beach. Even when you're away from the water, this stuff has plenty to offer. It keeps lashes full and curled all day long, and with these three picks, you won't have to worry about flakes or clumps either. We tried them; you'll love them.

Waterproof mascara is a mainstay for summer, but which ones actually stay put? Well, we've cried, swam, even got caught in the rain with these guys with no smudging and the best part is that they're all under $10. If you've been known to get a little bit more than emotional at those ASPCA commercials or you shed a few tears while reading the Hunger Games series - which, who didn't then this is gonna make sure that your mascara isn't running down your face. This is Voluminous Million Lashes and it's a step up from the original Voluminous formula. It's going to coat every single lash and thicken it with a dark coat of mascara. It's defining every lash. It leaves the lashes looking really thick and intense. And with that you have darker, thicker, more smoldering lashes for a great night time look. Maybelline's Lash Stiletto is perfect for the pool Full, because it gives you a pretty unfussy, look without looking to made up. Now a little bit goes along way and it's not going to way the lashes down or flake. It's called lash kit and heal for a reason. It's going to lengthen your lashes, hence the stiletto reference. And If you have longer lashes, just be careful seriously fluttery by the time there finished. But it's also great for shorter lashes if you want to amp them up. and because this wand is a little bit longer than most, it's really good at getting those baby lashes like right here in the corner of the eye. and that's the end of the last line. If I wasn't wearing eye liner, this is the perfect daytime look because it's lightweight and a little bit fluttery as well. Cover Girl Lash Blast is a BellaSugar favorite and necessary if you know you'll be dealing with humidity or excessive heat because it won't melt off. Also, a go-to for rainy days because not even that crazy sideways range, they're going to mess up your lashes. Now this one has a thicker, fatter wand but it's still softy enough to get those hard to reach places, like the corners of your lash line. I turn my wand vertically to get these corner lashes right here. It's also perfect for your lower lashes too. One thing I really like about Lash Blast is that it accentuates what you already have without going into tarantula territory. One thing I've learned along the way is that if you don't like straight wands, you can easily bend them. So just pull it from the tube a little bit, and then bend sideways, and you will have a slanted wand. And remember, don't forget to wash your mascara off with a light makeup remover at the end of the night. I'm Kirbie and thanks for watching BellaSugar TV.
