NEW Yardley Raincoat Mascara Top Coat
I’ve been using the New Yardley Raincoat Mascara Gel for about a week now and I have to say it does EXACTLY what it says.
I tend to rub my eyes a little too often throughout the day and with that my eye makeup doesn’t last too long. Sometimes I skip my eye makeup altogether, but mascara is one of those items that I feel is necessary every day.
It opens your eyes up and makes you look and feel somewhat more awake. I will very often just wear some mascara, a lip-gloss and some powdered blush. I honestly think that is enough for everyday wear.
When I feel like doing a full-face of makeup, which naturally includes foundation and powder and eyeliner and eye-shadow and mascara and setting spray an… the list could go on for days! It’s always good to have light weight products that will not weigh-down your skin. The thing about water-proof mascara is the insanely long wear and that you could shed a few tears without edning up looking like a racoon, but the downside of that, is that it is a bit heavier for everyday wear on cooler days when that waterproof factor isn’t really necessary. The formula for waterproof products is quite different to ordinary ones and in my opinion, you shouldn’t use it, unless you actually have to.
Yardley just launched this amazing new product that is a clear gel that gives you the option to choose whether you want your favourite mascara to be waterproof or not. It comes with a really cute applicator brush and the packaging is so pastel and pretty.
I apply this Raincoat to any one of my favourite mascaras once they have dried. It is my new favourite addition to my very simple daily beauty routine.
It also doubles as an unruly eyebrow tamer. I have started using this product on my eyebrows and honestly my eyebrows stay so perfect throughout the day that I sometimes want to mess it up just to make sure that nobody has pranked me and swapped my product with super glue! Okay that was cheesy but I genuinely had a freak-out moment. With it being waterproof, I thought gosh… how will I get it off. It didn’t come off with water but my brows were back to normal after some makeup remover and a warm shower.
I didn’t have a hair out of place throughout the entire day. I’m super impressed. The product did dry in like a hair gel type feel but didn’t look like I was wearing any product, so that’s a win.
