The perfect waterproof mascara? One that lengthens and darkens lashes without feeling crispy, stays put, and doesn’t require an industrial-strength solvent to remove. These sweat-proof, pool-proof, ugly-crying-proof, eye-opening wonders deliver on all fronts. So begone, summer panda eye—we will not be seeing you this year.

SHOP NOW: CHANEL, nordstrom.com, $32.00

This unbudgeable makeup artist favorite (and Kim Kardashian staple) lengthens and separates lashes while also leaving them soft, fluttery, and pliant.

BLINC MASCARA

SHOP NOW: Blinc, sephora.com, $26.00

This unique mascara has an ardent cult following (and is consistently one of the top-rated mascaras at Sephora). The tubing formula wraps around individual lashes to make them appear thicker and longer, and it won’t smudge—even if you rub your eyes. Somewhat miraculously, Blinc also doesn’t require cleanser to remove, but slides off easily with warm water.
