When it comes to my lashes, I'm not really picky. I feel like my criteria for a good mascara is simple: something that lengthens and volumizes, and stays on for a long, long time. Emphasis on the "stay on for a long, long time" because in 100% humidity year round, I need something that won't smudge on me after a few hours in the heat. And I finally found my mascara soulmate: the Ofra HD Volumizing Waterproof Mascara. I received it complimentary of Ofra from a meetup they hosted for the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida girls. I have so many products I still need to review from that meetup (here's my Illuminating Blush Stripes review!), so you'll be seeing a lot of Ofra in the coming months! Brace yo'selves.

Anyway, I have been putting this mascara through the wringer, ya'll. When I was in the Florida Keys a couple of months ago, I, in all of my vain glory, wore this mascara while I spent the day snorkeling. After a full day of being in the water and the hot and humid sun, this mascara did NOT budge. It was insane. No smudges, no nothing. Like, what was this sorcery that was happening on my lashes? I couldn't believe it.

The secret to this mascara not budging is that it is one of those "tubing" mascara. To remove the mascara, use warm water to massage your lashes, and the "tubes" of mascara will slide right off your lashes. This mascara is formulated with algae extract and glycine soja germ extract which is meant to condition your lashes and stimulate lash growth.

When first applied, the mascara is a bit tacky on the lashes, but after a few minutes of drying, the tackiness goes away. Be careful when applying, because it's really easy to get some of the product on the skin. And once the mascara dries, it is a pain in the butt to remove. So be aware of that! I wouldn't say that this mascara is the most volumizing mascara I've used, but it is definitely one of the more lengthening mascaras I've ever used. But honestly, I'm okay with that because it lasts FOREVER. It takes 2-3 coats of this mascara to get the length and volume I like, but be careful because it can get clumpy if too many coats are added.

It does take some getting used to, but I am seriously in love with this mascara. Everything else pales in comparison! Dare I say that this has become my holy grail mascara? This mascara is available on Amazon and the Ofra website.
