Confession: I don’t make it a habit of wearing mascara when I do sports - I’m not really about how good I look when I’m working out. But I have “accidentally” worn mascara out more than a few times when I went swimming and for a game of tennis.

That’s when these mascaras amazed me by staying intact - no smudging or flaking after each session until I was ready to remove them with waterproof makeup remover.

So if you’ve ever been plagued by panda eyes caused by melting mascara, consider the three in the gallery above life-changers. After all, they’ve been truly tried and tested.
