A while back I had the opportunity to try out the Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

The Website Claims:
A clear topcoat that instantly waterproofs, refreshes, and protects any mascara all day, without drying or clumping. This advanced, lightweight formula glides on smooth, dries quickly, and gives your lashes a touchable, soft lacquer finish that lasts all day.

Anastasia Beverly Hills states that they are cruelty-free.

Isododecane, Polyethylene, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Synthetic Wax, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butylhydroxyhydrocinnamate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

Key Ingredients:
Jellified Triglycerides: Provide a creamy, lightweight texture.
Silicone Resin: Provides long lasting hold and a waterproof film.
High Melting Point Wax: Provides high definition and lasting effects.

$21 for .19 oz

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! I’ve tested this baby through blood, sweat and tears! Seriously though, I’ve tested it through my watery eyes from allergies, through crying, and through sweating outside at Universal Studios Orlando. It didn’t budge. It didn’t come off on my contacts, or my lids, or my cheeks.

It does what it promises to do… It makes your mascara waterproof. I tried it at Universal with Too Faced Better Than False lashes mascara and it worked great. I tried it with tarte and it worked great. It also worked perfectly with Milani.

It looks like a clear jelly black on the brush and when applied it doesn’t seem to affect the color of your mascara. It didn’t make my mascara clump up. It just seems to work with whatever I’m wearing.

It also removes easily with my Sonia Kashuk eye makeup remover.

Would I purchase?
Yes! This means I can wear ANY mascara, provided I use this on top of it, and it won’t come off on my contacts when I’m having a bad allergy day. It won’t let nylons come off on my cheeks. It really works! Anastasia Beverly Hills made a clear winner when they creased the Lash Genius and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
