Summer Beauty Challenge: Makeup vs. Water


Watch What Happens When We Put Waterproof Makeup To The Test

Let’s get soaked

by Wolfgang Ruth

Anyone who wears waterproof makeup knows that it isn't always, well, waterproof. This is especially noticeable during the summer when surprise thunderstorms and spontaneous trips to the beach mean we want our makeup to stay put. But which makeup is actually waterproof? We decided to put some of this season's newest waterproof releases to the ultimate test: by dumping gallons of water on ourselves while wearing some of our favorite products.

See what happens when we put products like Urban Decay's Vice Liquid Lipstick and Dior's Diorshow On Stage Liner to the test in the video.
