    Splish splash

    This mascara is totally waterproof. The unique “tubing” formula acts like a raincoat for your lashes by enveloping them with a coat of waterproof primer and another coat of color. This won’t budge until you take it off, but try to avoid rubbing your eyes, as too much agitation can cause your lashes to break when you’re wearing such a strong formula.

    Endless onyx

    We’re stocking up on this inky black liner with serious staying power. If you want a smoky look, start smudging right after you apply, as this liner sets up fast. The creamy consistency glides on smooth and gives you a great looking line any time, and the roll-up pencil means no messy sharpening.

    Bronzy babe

    For girls who can’t go without eyeshadow, this crème-gel formula won’t crease in the heat. Love a shadow that’s long-wearing and waterproof, and it’s super easy to apply – just use your fingers! Bad to the Bronze, a shimmery medium brown, is the perfect shade for summer.

    Spot solver
    Summer sweat means more breakouts, and this concealer is totally waterproof so your blemishes will stay covered no matter what! This multi-tasking formula covers red spots, dark circles and any other discolorations you might have, and it even comes in color-correcting formulas for brightening and redness correction.

    Pinch of poppy
    To add some color to your cheeks on pale days, grab this cheek stain for a flush of color that isn’t going anywhere. It comes in four summery shades and goes on like an easy-to-blend cream, but dries to a stain. Blend each cheek right after you apply to avoid an uneven or clown-like effect.

    Pretty in pink

    For a finishing touch, grab this jumbo pencil for color that lasts. The pencil makes this color easy to apply and you can build the formula for more or less intense color. Perky pink is the perfect pop of color to finish off your pretty summer look.

    Take it away

    Waterproof formulas are made to be tough, and sometimes all the scrubbing and rubbing in the world still leaves you with raccoon eyes the next morning. This makeup remover is specially formulated to remove tough waterproof formulas so you can be makeup-free before you go to sleep. Ahhh.
