Waterproof vs. Non-Waterproof Lengthening and Volumizing Mascaras: Pros and Cons.

There are always many choices when deciding what mascara is right for you. This article will discuss the pros and cons of waterproof vs. non-waterproof lengthening and volumizing mascaras.

Waterproof mascara

Waterproof mascara provides length and volume effects while resisting water, sweat, and humidity. Waterproof mascaras generally tend to contain harsh ingredients which help to make it “waterproof”. However, they are much stronger and tend to weigh heavier on your lashes.

Here we will mention some pros and cons of waterproof mascaras:


  • Resistant to water and sweat

Waterproof mascara is designed to resist water and sweat, perfect for outdoor activities, hot and humid weather, and water sports.


  • Difficult to remove

Waterproof mascara can be challenging to remove, requiring a specific makeup remover or oil-based cleanser to dissolve the waterproof formula completely. The extra effort required for removal can be time-consuming and may also cause irritation or damage to the delicate skin around the eyes.

  • Includes toxic and harmful chemicals

Waterproof mascaras are often made of common toxic and harmful ingredients that affect the skin and body, including parabens and phthalates.

  • Non-waterproof mascara

Designed to make your lashes stand out without adding harsh ingredients to the formula. Its lightweight formula glides smoothly, precisely coating each lash from root to tip.


  • Gentle on Lashes

Non-waterproof mascaras are generally formulated with milder ingredients, making them gentler on your lashes. They help prevent dryness, brittleness, and potential damage, promoting healthier lashes.

  • Includes healthier and non-toxic ingredients

One of the key advantages of non-waterproof mascaras is their transparency in labeling.

  • Natural Look

If you prefer a more natural, clean, everyday look, non-waterproof mascaras are perfect.
