waterproof any mascara!

Bare Minerals Locked & Coated review swatch photo
Bare Minerals Locked & Coated review swatch photo

I’ve actually had this product for a long time but never got round to using it. Mainly because I never actually read the label to see what it was. I thought it was just a plain ol' mascara and I didn’t want to have too many open at one time. After a closer look I saw that it was a mascara top coat. Bare Minerals Locked & Coated is a lash topcoat that’ll make your favourite mascara completely waterproof. This comes in handy for those who want to use their favourite mascara but it doesn’t have a waterproof option. It’s a transparent gel which doesn’t weigh down the lashes or clump them together. Then your mascara will stay in place all day with no smudging to movement. It’s also surprisingly inexpensive at only £11. Of course you can go with a waterproof mascara and call it a day but I do think it’s a handy item to have in your makeup bag.

  2. I never knew this sort of thing existed! That is unbelievably handy, it's the most annoying thing when you can't find a waterproof option for your favourite mascara. xx

  7. I really like the idea of this! Especially because I have such a backlog of mascaras to use it'd nice to have a topcoat type product for when I need a waterproof mascara!

  8. I dont like the feeling of water proof mascara so I am using the regular one. But with this I can long last my regular mascara for full day. Happy to know about it.

  9. Hi Lily^^,
    I got the waterprof version from the "Maybelline Rocket Mascara" and it´s awesome! I think in summertime waterproof mascara is essential! You don´t want your makeup to go swimming because of your sweat :D
    Have a lovely day!

  11. That's so handy. It'd come in especially useful on days like today where it's absolutely chucking it down outside.

  12. I don't see the sense in this when almost every mascara has also a waterproof version but it's good to know its working I guess?

  18. great idea like you said for those who don't want to part with their fave mascara, but I rarely go anywhere to need it so I wouldn't use it personally :)

  21. It actually doubles as an eyebrow gel, that's what I use it for and it works great!

  23. An interesting idea, but I personally think you might as well just buy a waterproof mascara to begin with. I think if you're not careful your skincare or makeup routine can become so over complicated and this seems like a step that isn't really required x

  24. What an interesting product! Does it really work well, especially on oily eyelids? And does it stop transfer?
