This Is the Only Waterproof Mascara You Need This Summer, According to Pinterest


As any regular Pinterest peruser will know, the site is essentially a black hole where beauty inspiration and product know-how is concerned. In fact, just a few months ago, we discovered a cult-favorite mascara (with an oh-so-naughty name) was the most saved formula on the site during the winter months. I mean, even if we can't go outside due to freezing temperatures, we should at the very least be privy to a flirty set of fringe, right? Right. Of course, that was winter, and this time of year, our mascara needs translate quite differently. Sure, we still crave volume, length, and separation, but we also demand serious staying power. The only problem is that smudge-resistant waterproof formulas aren't always the best or healthiest choices for our lashes-and that's putting it nicely.

So, when Pinterest alerted us this morning that one waterproof mascara, in particular, was blowing up their "most-saved" statistics, we whipped our heads around in ferocious curiosity. And, as it turns out, one of Team Byrdie's most beloved regular mascaras is this season's top pick in the waterproof category as well. So, if you haven't already, meet LancГґme's addictively luscious Monsieur Big-Pinterest's seasonal waterproof mascara that spiked 316% in April alone.

But back to Monsieur Big being a Byrdie editor favorite. "This is the craziest mascara I've used-it made my eyelashes look like falsies in two swipes. It features a super-thick, soft brush and a really creamy formula so that you don't have to apply very much to see pretty mind-blowing results. I use this one when I want a really over-the-top look," senior editor Hallie gushes.

In fact, it was thanks to Hallie that I recently tried the cult-classic mascara myself, and I've since found myself obsessed. She wasn't kidding; just a few swipes the formula delivers unparalleled volume. Essentially, it's a $200 set of lash extensions in a tube, and the waterproof formula is obviously just as good. (The stats don't lie, folks.) Plus, it will last a full 24 hours because, you know, summer festivities can be unpredictable, and your lashes should be covered.
