The Best Sex-Proof Mascaras — According To Porn Stars

There are a few things that you can depend on sex to completely ruin every once in a while: your sheets, your clothes, your friendships, and, most definitely, your makeup.
Now that we've covered the best sex-proof lipsticks, looking to adult film actresses for their expertise on the matter, the natural next step was to find out their picks for sex-proof mascaras. Because really, if there's one thing that always ends up smudged post-coitus, it's this shit. Ever looked in the mirror after a hookup to see straight-up raccoon eyes? We're with you.
While some adult actresses admitted to preferring a messier look while filming (fair!), others gave us the lowdown on the ones that can really last through anything. To our surprise, plenty of their picks are readily available at a drugstore — and, of course, Too Faced's Better Than Sex was a favorite, too.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
