Summertime is our favorite time of year. It involves rosé, bikinis, long days, warm nights, swimming, and tropical vacations. Most recently I made a trip to Croatia which included sailing for two weeks around the southern Dalmatian coast. Sailing was quite the adventure of a lifetime. A group of people that barely knew each other, in close quarters for a couple of weeks, living on a limited amount fresh water, continuously salty, and having the time of our lives, but more on this later!
I learned a lot about myself while being on a boat for that long: 1) I can live on a lot less 2) I feel I am capable of anything now.
Although I can live on a lot less, one item I cannot live without is mascara. I know that sounds silly, but I never leave the house without it. Even when on vacation and jumping in the water every day, you will find mascara on my lashes. Some may call it high maintenance, and I’m cool with that because I went two weeks without a proper shower, washed my clothes in the salty ocean, and packed everything I needed for those two weeks in a backpack.
Anyways, I found my new favorite waterproof mascara that will be a consistent staple in my makeup bag. L’Oréal’s Butterfly Intenza Mascara in Blackest Black. I have tried an array of waterproof mascaras. Usually, they hold pretty well, but most of the times you get the black flakes under your eyes, the drip down the sides of your eyes, the ones that aren’t waterproof at all, or the ones that never come off. L’Oréal’s Butterfly Intenza Mascara gives me a dramatic look I love, without coming off until I am ready to take it off. I’ve worn it in salt water, for more than 12 hours, in fresh water, chlorine water… I mean it’s a miracle worker!
