I workout at lunch 3 times a week. I don’t have time to take a full shower and do my make-up fresh before I return to work. I rely on my make-up to last all day even through a workout. I have decided to start putting my make-up to the sweat test and only keep those that make the grade. You can expect to see more beauty posts as I put all my make-up to the sweat test.
For my first Sweat Test post, I’m putting mascara to the test. When looking at a good mascara, I look for several things:
- Does it make my lashes look thicker?
- Does it make my lashes darker?
- Does it make my lashes look longer?
- Does it last all day?
- Is it waterproof or will it leave me with racoon eyes?
My favorite drugstore mascara is L’Oreal. Today’s make-up being put to the test is L’Oreal’s Voluminous Miss Magna Rock waterproof mascara.
So for the last couple of weeks, I’ve been applying this mascara in the morning. I even put some of this mascara on Sunday morning just for my run! Putting make-up just for a run is usual for me, but I did it for the sake of testing! I evaluated the the mascara before and after my workouts throughout the week. See images below.
So, to sum things up, here is how the L’Oreal’s Voluminous Miss Magna Rock waterproof mascara performed:
- It made my lashes look thicker
- It made my lashes darker
- My lashes looked super long (they look like they almost touch my eyebrows)
- It definitely stayed on all day
- It was waterproof and didn’t leave me with racoon eyes.
So, for final results, I give this mascara my stamp of approval since it did stay put after a workout. In fact, it stayed put all day. I didn’t hold up 100% in the pool, but when you consider the chlorine in the water, it stood up to the chemicals pretty well. I can definitely count on L’Oreal’s Voluminous Miss Magna Rock waterproof mascara to stay put all day.
