I was very excited to pick up the Tower 28 MakeWaves Mascara in shade Drift while I was in New York recently. It is yet to launch in the UK but it should be coming soon. Here’s a full review with before and after photos.
What is Tower 28 MakeWaves Mascara?
- Mascara designed to visibly volumise, lengthen and define
- Long-wearing and water resistant formula
- Triple-wave wand has three flexible, suspended bands that visibly lengthen and define each lash
- Super lightweight buildable formula
- Finish doesn’t get crunchy
- Easy to remove
- Vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free
- Ophthalmologist tested, contact lens safe, allergy tested, and 100 percent safe for sensitive eyes
This wand is great at catching every lash, and coating each one without loading on too much product at once. It extends and separates the lashes really nicely.
Aquaflex® Technology: Conventionally used in haircare styling, this ingredient actively works to define curl using memory hold (it memorizes the wave of your lash) while leaving lashes touchably soft. Technology helps keep lashes humidity-proof, visibly lifted, and curled.
-Castor Oil Blend: Helps keep lashes looking healthy, strong, and conditioned.
Before and After Photos
Here are the before and afters for you, with one light coat, two light coats, and then three generous coats on both eyes.

My Review of Tower 28 MakeWaves Mascara shade Drift
It is so exciting to find a really good brown mascara! I think most people tend to choose a black mascara, (and I did actually pick up the Black version of this too), but I went straight for the brown one to start testing.
I am absolutely loving this mascara. Drift is the perfect shade of brown. Not too deep that you lose the softness, and not too warm that you end up looking like your eyes are a bit sore. It is just the perfect shade of brown.
The brush is great at picking up and stretching out every lash, and the formula has a lovely volumising effect that still keeps things looking fairly natural.
It feels really light on the lashes, isn’t at all irritating and I haven’t noticed any flaking or smudging. It’s great. I will try the black shade, Jet, soon but for now, Drift is just perfect.
If you’re looking for a new mascara that simply enhances the lashes, adds length and volume, and also keeps a curl, the Tower 28 MakeWaves Mascara is definitely one to look at.
Although this isn’t a tubing mascara, it does resemble one as it is lightweight, non-irritating and safe for sensitive eyes and contact lenses.
If you are looking for a tubing formula, I really like Zoeva’s one. Read: Ooh La Lash Tubing Mascara Review
When does Tower 28 MakeWaves Mascara launch in the UK?
Unfortunately the MakeWaves Masacara isn’t currently available in the UK. Right now, there is no confirmed UK launch date, however, I will update as soon as I can. Meanwhile, you can shop Tower 28 at Cult Beauty* in the UK.
Is Tower 28 MakeWaves a tubing mascara?
No. This isn’t technically a tubing mascara and can be removed with regular eye makeup remover. It is however very light feeling and long-wearing like a tubing mascara. Check out Best Eye Makeup Removers on a Budget.
