Sephora promises a waterproof formula that offers the same luxe look as false lashes that can withstand elements like water and sweat for 24 hours. It’s the first 7-in-1 full-coverage mascara that volumizes, lengthens, curves, separates, strengthens, protects, and nourishes. The formula contains inter alia Vitamin B5 Complex, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil. Above all, it resists fading and smudging, thanks to the waterproof formula. This mascara is ophthalmologically tested and is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. It doesn’t contain sulfates nor phthalates (esters of phthalic acid that are mainly used as plasticizers).

By now we all know that how much I love an extreme eyelash. So you can imagine that when I came by the Sephora Full Action Waterproof Extreme Effect Mascara I just needed to purchase it immediately. I don’t usually use waterproof mascaras, but at this time of the year I think a waterproof mascara is a bit of a life saviour so I decided to give this one a a try instead of the regular version. And I love it! Although I have to be honest here and so I must say that this mascara doesn’t live up to all of its claims. It doesn’t curl my lashes at all. This is not surprising at all since I have straight Asian lashes, so I can’t be really judgemental about that, but there is also no noticeable increase in volume nor length. That said, the mascara is really waterproof and it doesn’t clump despite me applying 3-4 coats. If you know straight Asian lashes, you also know we get mascara smudged under the eye just from blinking, but this mascara doesn’t smudge or flake at all. The mascara is also great at separating my lashes and even leaves them really soft, yet gives me that extreme and dramatic false eyelashes look. The brush is also really amazing and easy to use. You can easily reach the smaller lashes in the corner of your eyes. If you are looking for a good mascara that is waterproof and smudge proof that separated the eyelashes. I honestly must say that I’d expected a bit more from a product that claims an extreme effect, but other than that I think it’s a great waterproof mascara in its price range.
