So if you are getting tire from keeping your eyes look clean and fresh from your current Mascara while you’re at the beach or outside in this humid season. Or you just simply want to replace it with the Waterproof Mascara just because you’re going to put it on anyway, may as well use the waterproof one instead of the non-proof. I know I do so, because nowadays waterproof makeup removal products make cleaning seem at ease. I’ll have a different post about this subject later on, so please check back. Here are some of the Waterproof Mascaras running from $7.77 to $27.50 with high ranking from users like you.

Why it’s great: “The combination of the brush and the formula makes this a great mascara,” one reader says. “The brush is big, and it really separates my lashes and makes them look longer than normal. The formula is very smooth and there is no clumping.” Other readers “love the drama” this mascara gives their lashes. “When I use this mascara [my friends] ask me if I’ve put on fake lashes” another user writes.

Why it’s great: Readers call this affordable mascara a “super value” and say it works for everyday wear. Though it “isn’t very dramatic,” one reader says it “coats, defines, gives you nice color and doesn’t smear or flake.” Plus, it’s “easy to remove” and doesn’t irritate eyes.

3_Mascara_BenefitBADgalBest Waterproof Mascara No. 3: Benefit BADgal Waterproof Mascara, $19
Why it’s great: This Benefit buy is the formula to beat, according to readers who have oily skin or live in humid climates. “If you’re looking for a mascara that stays on, makes your lashes full and long and [washes off] easily, this is the one to try,” one reviewer writes.

2_Mascara_MaybelineDiscoveryBest Waterproof Mascara No. 2: Maybelline New York Lash Discovery Mini Brush Waterproof Mascara, $7.77
Why it’s great: Don’t be fooled by the the small size of the brush: This mascara delivers massive results. One user says the smaller brush cuts down on clumps, “separates lashes while making them fuller” and allows her to reach to the tiny lashes at the outer corner of her eyes — “without making a huge mess.” As for how it stands up to wetness? It’s “very waterproof,” according to users. “I went swimming with it and had no problems,” a reviewer reports.

Why it’s great: Readers flock to this “luscious” mascara because it’s waterproof, and it’s easily removable. “I do water aerobics and swim laps and have never had this smear,” raves a fan. “I am always confident that when I am getting out of the water my face will not have any black circles.”

Other reviewers were stoked to see how long and voluminous the product makes their lashes. “This mascara not only thickens, it also lengthens,” another reader describes. “My eyelashes look as good as if I were wearing false lashes.”
