You’re tired.

You’ve come home from a long day of being amazing and you barely have the energy to crawl into bed, let alone pull a jackhammer out of the closet to get your mascara off.

Well, scrub no more!  Here are some tried-and-true mascaras that are near bullet proof and can be removed with just water. You read that right. A little warm water, a washcloth and you’ll be in bed before M.A.S.H. is on.  (That’s still a thing, right?)

These mascaras work by creating a polymer “tube” around the lashes.  The warm water releases the bond and the “tube” just slides off the lash, nearly intact—creepily looking a little like spider legs.  Just a few downward swipes and you are mascara-free and, even better, at several different price-points you are bound to find your perfect mascara.

L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tube Mascara

[MSRP $9.95]

You can find this in any chain or drug store out there.  The double-ended tube holds primer and mascara.  This one is unique (and great) because the primer creates the tubes AND lengthens your lashes in the process.

PRO: Affordable and lengthening

CON: Two steps

Clinique Lash Power Mascara

[MSRP $16.50-$17.50]

Found in any department store and online.  This has a 24-hour wear and is perfect for someone who is active because it withstands sweat, moisture and all that jazz.  Comes in two styles Lash Power and Lash Feathering. Personally, I love the original Lash Power because the small brush catches every single lash.

PRO: Great natural looking lashes and there’s always that sweet GWP

CON: Not an incredibly buildable formula

Trish McEvoy Lash Curling Mascara

[MSRP $31.50]

This mascara is bad break-up proof.  It acts like true waterproof mascara without the sandblaster.  Also this one hits my personal holy trinity—it lengthens, thickens and has easy removal. The formula also comes in  a volumizing formula with a smaller, more detailed brush.

PRO: Near-perfect Mascara

CON: Only sold at Nordstrom brick and mortar stores in Utah, but also available online at www.trishmcevoy.com
