There are two broad categories of mascara. The first is the more common wax-based formulas that coat each lash with pigments that give the lengthening and voluminous effect we covet from mascara. Wax-based waterproof mascaras can also be difficult to remove thoroughly and require much time and effort with oil-based eye makeup removers while non-waterproof formulas can smudge, run and look messy over time.
On the flip side, there are the less well-known tubing mascaras. Tubing mascara coats each lash with a polymer that forms tiny tubes around each strand (hence the name), resulting in the same lengthening and voluminous effect we want. Tubing mascaras have an added advantage though: they have increased longevity and are less likely to smudge, if any, and can be easily removed with just warm water. Just watch these tubes slip out without any resistance when you’re in the shower.
