Because my eyes are so sensitive, I usually don’t wear waterproof mascaras because they always dry out my eyes for some reason. And because mascaras, once opened, only last 3 months due to contamination concerns, I don’t want to shell out extra money on a waterproof mascaras for occasional uses.

Am I glad that Clarins makes this Double Fix’ Mascara, which provides a waterproof coat over any mascara! At first, when I tried it on, I was concerned that it wasn’t coating enough, since the product is colorless and very thin. But after I put a thin coat on, I noticed that this is really heavy duty stuff, and provides a very lasting waterproof film over my Lancome Hypnose that did not melt or dissolve one bit under water, even in my shower (I tested it in my shower before using it outside).

To remove it proved to be quite a challenge too – even my DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and Kose Seikisho Perfect Cleansing Oil needed some extra massaging to remove it from my lashes. DHC’s fared better though – dissolved it completely without leaving black smears but the Seikisho one left me with raccoon eyes.

Bottom line – this is really waterproof stuff. and it’s a great idea because you won’t have to buy a waterproof version of your favorite mascara!
