When it comes to long-lasting masks, there is no denying that waterproof formulas often take the top spot. No matter what time of year it is, no one has time for sweaty situations or anything that can ruin our flawless makeup. The worst part is that smudging and rubbing the mascara on your face is not pleasant at all. But let’s be honest, does anyone really enjoy taking off their waterproof mascara at the end of the day? Have you successfully removed everything? Because if you’re like me, it often takes more than a little bit of effort to completely remove these shockproof masks. Plus, all that hard scrubbing can damage your delicate lids and lashes. Fortunately, there is a better alternative, tube masks!
It originally started in Japan, but has only continued to grow in popularity around the world in recent years. Unlike conventional masks that paint the lashes with pigment, they contain polymers that envelop each individual lash, creating tiny tubes. Sounds weird, but these tubes are waterproof and make your lashes look Really good. They don’t smudge or flake and they also give you an enviable length that rivals lash extensions and that you can easily remove with minimal effort at the end of the day.
All you need to do is gently massage your lashes with warm water and these tubes slide in right away. This in itself makes tube mascara a huge win in our books. It is also ideal for exercise classes or hot days. I mean you can even rub your eyes casually and your makeup will stay in place. Are you still curious? If you’re ready to give these skins a shot, I’ve rounded up some of the favorite highlights below.
