Can you use another waterproof mascara as final step?
I have such bad allergies and my eyes water a lot, so, I must wear to have waterproof mascara. Would love to try this but...has anyone ever used , say, this type of mascara and coated the eyelashes with a waterproof mascara at the end, as a final step? If so, has it worked to prevent 'black eyes' when eyes do water? I wonder if that would make the application of this mascara waterproof? I really want this mascara! It sounds like a miracle invention for some. Maybe I will just buy it and try it. If anyone else has already, would you please let me know? Thanks!

The mascara it comes with is waterproof. I can attest that it is cry proof and practically make up remover proof.
I prefer to use my own non waterproof mascara with it for ease of removal and also my mascara is scented which I enjoy!
So you can use your favorite waterproof mascara with it too and I'm sure it'd work just fine!
First, my heart goes out to you. I don't have allergies that cause my eyes to water, but my eyes are very sensitive to wind. If there's some wind blowing, my eyes will water and everyone around me thinks I'm crying.
I thought I would get panda eyes with this product as well, but for me.. it holds up pretty well against my watery eyes. Of course, I would only put this on my top lashes. If you want to avoid having the top and bottom corner lashes stick, I would put that water proof coating on the bottom lashes after you are done with the steps.
I have posted a picture of myself with the mascara only on the top lashes. You may not be able to see it clearly when you zoom in (filters make pictures grainy when zoomed in). I have naturally short lashes, so it may not look like much, but if you can see the lashes kinda sticking out.. the actual length of my lashes in this picture is actually the same length of the false lashes I have in my drawers.
Hope this helped.

I would not reccomend using a waterproof mascara over this product because with regular mascara it really hardens and stiffens your eyelash and it is already really hard to take off as is. A waterproof mascara will only worsen the situation. Not only is it tough taking the fibers off but with waterproof mascara will just make you waste your time trying to take it off. Frustration.

I have a drawer full of mascaras and I have tried lots of combinations with the nylon fibers (step 2 of this product). My favorite way to use it is with another primer/lash base and a top coat of Lancome Definicils; it works great, so try your waterproof mascra with it and see. If it doesn't work, you can return it.

You can definitely try another waterproof mascara on top to "seal" the fibers of the "Better Than False Lashes" mascara but make sure it is a super lightweight and defining mascara that won't be too heavy or chunky on top of this one.
