Hi! Just seen your post and I can suggest a few great ones! I really reccommend make up forever smoky lash mascara waterproof, from sephora, pricy but worth it! Amazing! Also holds a curl well! (I use this personally). Any Lancôme waterproof mascaras are also amazing and completely waterproof as I tried and tested all and are fabulous! I'm yet to find a mid price range one that works as good?! The only tip I can share is you shall need a good oil based make up remover or cleanser to remove completely :) Hope you find one that suits! ;) Kelly :)

I got one by Make Up For Ever (that's the way they write it) in Sephora - can't rembember the price - apparently the pros use it on models;
it certainly stays on - in fact, the problem is more getting it off! Think indelible concrete.It's not quite fine enough for my taste, but daughter says that's because I'm a moron who doesn't know how to apply it - she could be right (and I can cry with abandon at the insult - because my mascara doesn't run)! Only cos we're worth it (gag).

hi there

during the summer I was using a mascara from the Carrefour range of make up (Les Cosmetiques). It cost around 6-7 euros. Had it on whilst swimming and it stayed put. Could only remove it with a special make up remover.

Also recently bought a Maybelline mascara (cil a cil, red tube, around 9euros) although this was by mistake (I didn't notice it was waterproof!). So not tested in water but after washing my face before bed, it was still on and once again had to use the waterproof remover.

Hope you'll find something that suits you; I know it can be very disappointing when you buy new cosmetics and they don't work as you had hoped! Just remember; more expensive doesn't necessarily mean better quality :-)
