This Gel Promises To Waterproof Your Makeup In One Swipe

We're deep into makeup-melting season, people. Whether it's from the heat, the humidity, or the large body of water you're diving into to save yourself from the first two, your cosmetics are having a mixer halfway down your face. The only way to survive this mess is to splurge on all-new, waterproof products, right?
Not so, according to Anastasia Beverly Hills. The brand's Beauty Genius Waterproofing Gel claims to make any powder you've got in your kit slip-proof. Just swipe it on your brush, dip it in the product, and — bam — zero melt.
To see if it was worth its salt, our beauty writer Maria, loather of migrating makeup, decided to give this teeny tube a go in the Beauty Test Lab. Watch the video above to find out how it held up. Could this gel be the slimy makeup savior you've been hoping for? Let's hope so — it's getting hot out there.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Genius Clear Waterproofing Gel, $18, available at Sephora.
