When I was still working at Avon, I never understood why the Australian market would prefer to have a non-waterproof mascara in their portfolio over a waterproof one. I would always ask “why wouldn’t you rather have waterproof?” because, for me, I hate the fact that most waterproof mascaras in the Philippines aren’t really waterproof. Somehow, they smudge all around my eyes at the end of the day. That’s, of course, until I discovered this awesome Etude House mascara that I didn’t have to worry of panda eyes anymore.
And so I’d always have my trusty Maybelline makeup remover to do its thing after I’ve enjoyed an entire day of smudge-free eyes. Sadly, I run out of it last week and boy it was such a b*tch to take off this waterproof mascara from my lashes. It stuck there even after washing my face 5x–and yes, that’s 30 splashes of water each! That’s when I fully understood ANZ’s issue with waterproof mascaras. -_-
So, yeah, I was stuck with the mascara for 2 days until I was able to go out and buy myself a new makeup remover. Since I’m out to try a new one, I saw this pretty bottle of Biore Micellar Cleansing Water at Watson’s and thought of giving it a try.
