Sweat-Proof Beauty For The Girl On The Go

Joanna Fleming

Whether you’re constantly on the run, fitting in a workout, chasing after kids, dealing with the enjoyment of hot flushes, or simply find your face slides off thanks to oiliness – this article is for you.

When our lives get so busy that we can’t keep up, the last thing you want to be worrying about is your mascara giving you panda eyes or your brows smudging off.

That’s where these products come in – they stand the test of time, oil and sweat, so you can be sure your makeup stays in place until you take it off at the end of a busy day.


Bobbi Brown Long Wear Waterproof Liner

If your eyeliner is on point, it’s a sign of having your life together in my humble opinion. When I go to the effort of wearing eyeliner, I want it to stay put. Which is exactly what Bobbi Brown’s densely-pigmented Long-Wear Waterpoof Liner does.

– This transfer-proof liner instantly forms a waterproof film

– The formula fights against sweat, humidity & tears

– It’s formulated with the lowest possible level of oils & waxes

– This liner allows you to achieve crisp colour payoff that doesn’t fade or fall out

– The pigment-rich formula glides on lids evenly for smooth, precise application

– The swivel-up pencil is super versatile and easy to use

★★★★★ Love! – Marisa

Love this eyeliner! I use the gel eyeliner on my top lid, but it often ran when I used it on my bottom, so i tried this on my bottom lid and it stays put all day. I’ve already bought this twice and will definitely buy again. It lasted me over a year with everyday use, so I think it’s a great value!

Blinc Smudgeproof Mascara

If ‘tubing mascara’ sounds foreign to you, you need to read this closely. The smudge-proof formula is invented to form tiny water-resistant “tubes” around your lashes rather than painting on product like conventional mascaras. What does that mean?

– Once applied, the tubes bind to your lashes and cannot run, smudge, clump, or flake

– This formula stays put on your lashes even if you cry or rub your eyes

– Blinc’s mascara will add both volume & length to give you natural-looking lashes that lasts all day

– Only when you are ready for removal, the tubes will effortlessly slide off your lashes with water

– No cleanser is required to remove this mascara!

– Ideal for those with sensitive eyes, contact lens wearers, performers & gym junkies

★★★★★ Found a mascara that works for me at last!  Jane

“I have tried over 10 different mascaras and always had problems smudging etc. I tried waterproof, expensive brands, cheap brands, non-smudge ones; I tried oil-free moisturiser, nothing worked. I recently bought this tubing mascara and it’s brilliant – no smudging and comes off so easily with warm water. Absolutely love it! I need to use eye drops throughout the day and it still stays on. So happy!”

– This water resistant pomade-like texture has a 24 hour longwear formula

– The richly pigmented formula easily fills, sculpts & defines brows

– It comes with a custom built-in brush that converts to a full-length angled brow brush
