Any mascara that is not waterproof.

I mean, once waterproof mascara was invented, why even continue making non-waterproof versions? Non-waterproof mascara is about as useful as a belted maxi pad.

Mascara does not give the same "oomph' as false eyelashes.

Even fiber lashes are no match for falsies

Some even come with a no band.

But I don't see this as rendering mascara "useless."

Some of us prefer a more natural look, and don't really want or need "oomph." We just want our light colored lashes to look a little darker. I don't want to deal with all that glue business or looking very made-up.

I still say that non-waterproof mascara is, indeed, useless.

False eyelashes just seem like a lot more effort than I'm willing to put in for a day-to-day thing. With mascara, my routine is pretty much "curl, curl, swipe, swipe." Takes less than a minute.

Many people who wear contacts prefer not to wear waterproof mascara. No, it doesn't stay on as well it can damage your lenses or be less comfortable to wear with lenses.

Just because you don't want to use it, non-waterproof mascara is far from useless.

I can't think of anything in particular. I only use what I find useful. I do think false eyelashes are a bit ridiculous, though, but that's just me.

I wear non-waterproof mascara on my upper lashes and have no problem with it at all. I like washing it off.

I do use waterproof on my lower lashes, though. So, yes, I use two mascaras.

I've worn contacts for years, but non-waterproof mascara crumbles off to easily for me and gets into my lenses. My eyes also tear up easily, so that would hit the non-waterproof mascara and make me look like Tammy Fay Baker. My waterproof stuff stays on all day, and sometimes it's still there a little the next morning (even after washing my face). And it doesn't get on the pillowcase either.

Removing waterproof mascara is hard on my lashes.

I've kind of faded back from wearing mascara at all.

Primer. I've never understood what the point of primer is. I put coconut oil on my face and apply loose or pressed powder and I'm good. What does primer do that a moisturizer can't do?

Lip primer. I keep my lipstick from smearing by applying lipstick and blotting twice. Once I do that, my lipstick stays on all day--unless I'm eating something that I have to bite into that is smearable, like an apple or ribs, etc. I don't have chapped lips, but I suppose if someone had chapped lips it might help. Otherwise, I don't really see the need for lip primer.
