What: Kanebo Mascara 38°C Silk Performance for Separating & Lengthening

Why: That tearjerker movie is guaranteed to make your mascara run. The solution, of course, is waterproof mascara. But what do you do when you know you’re not going to be a gushing display of waterworks? Clearly you don’t need that mega-duty 24-hour lash glue that will only come off with hours of harsh scrubbing.

I can attest that Kanebo’s silk mascara stays on longer than any normal mascara and it doesn’t run in the face of tears. In addition, the wear is so light and so silky, it looks like your natural lashes are really that long! You can even touch them and they stay soft — not clumpy, hard and crunchy like some long-wearing mascara. What’s even better is that when you’re ready to take it off, you don’t need paint thinner to remove it. Simply apply a bit of steamy hot water (the manufacturer says 38°C/100°F is the right temperature) and it wipes off instantly.

And even if getting misty eyed isn’t on your agenda, this is still a really high quality mascara that performs incredibly well for normal situations, too. The best comparison for all you Blinc fans out there, is Kiss Me Mascara, another personal favorite for creating natural looking lashes and keeping them healthy all the while.
